May 31, 2011Posted in: News & AnnouncementsQuote from ScyberDragon
Dammit, I was going to call it yesterday that it was these pictures as a joke.
So disappointing. Now, I never really felt most of the other ones were disappointing. I will take just about anything "new" from Diablo and be excited about it but really...?
We already have these pics, in high res. The only difference is that they added the diablo bar on it.
Oh well, hopefully we will be getting another system announcement soon™
Knowing Blizzard, the Diablo Bar™ system seen in these screenshots was probably designed over the course of many months of work by a crack-team of Blizzard graphic artists, ventriloquists and entomologists. Planning it was a 12-step process, followed by numerous consultations with leading experts, then a large number of rough sketches were rendered in Etch-a-Sketch. Then when it came time to deciding on a final design, following vicious weeks of in-fighting and backstabbing, a final design was agreed upon. Then the graphics artists worked 24-hour shifts non-stop for 3 months designing it from scratch, pixel by pixel in Microsoft Paint. Add to that 1 month for compiling the final product, 1 month for beta-testing on numerous monitors, and 1 month for shipping to Irvine from the depths of Mongolia, and that was it.

How long does it take to kill the Skeleton King if you are AFK and in an OTHER battle to the death that involves some net and two paddles?
About a minute and a half.
You can check out some of my other videos by going to my channel or using these links.
Fastest Diablo 3 Beta Speedrun in the history of the universe (as far as I can tell):
In-Depth look at the Demon Hunter in beta:
I'll be uploading videos a few times a week during beta and even more afterwards, subscribe if you want to.
Oct 11, 2011We know one thing Blizz wants to have as large player base for D3 as possible, more sales, more players, more rmah transactions = more profits for Blizz.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I think the development and beta could actually be intentionally stretched for financial reasons. And let me explain why i think that..
1. Game looks finished. And polished infact. Blizz has years of experience in providing on the go bug fix, and content development with wow. They could have easily released the game already and using updates fixed any bugs that came up (seing how game requires internet it wont be a problem to box game with few bugs)
2. Design decisions should have been made ages ago. And they were. This rune system bs, wepon dmg % spells and resource crap is just an excuse to prolong development/ beta. It took an idiot to see that Demon Hunter had issues with resource system and spells didnt scale all that well. I find it hard to beleive that mistake wasnt intentional.
3. Incredibly stupid beta. What are they testing? Bugs they find can easily be patched after release anyway. Stress testing is not even being done.
4. Extremely limited beta and very polished content. Not only does this limit the testing possibility, but also make you think am I testing this or am I just playing a demo?
5. No NDA. Giving press keys and letting them share the polished demo to attract more players. Who needs TV advertisement or posters in Metro?
6. Facebook beta sweepstakes - every 4th winner gets 2 keys. Why? So you send it to your friends wall and ask them to sign up. Hope they win and give you the 2nd key. More promotion for Blizz.
I cant find a single reason why the release isnt tomorrow. When I think about whats happening at Blizz offices I cant imagine anything. What are they doing there? Are they making a game, or has it already been made a long time ago?
Oct 3, 2011The BBFC has rated the Cutscenes of Diablo 3 with a rating of 15(Appropriate for ages 15 and over\Contains moderate bloody violence.) Another thing to note is the fact that 32 minutes of cutscenes were submitted. That a pretty significant chunk of time, and I'm excited to see what will be covered in these.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Any speculation on what the cutscenes will include?
Speculation: Other games receiving BBFC ratings have released 3-4 months out. We also know that Blizz prior till now was shooting for an pre 2012 release date, so this may not come as a surprise. Hopefully though this means that Early 2012, will truly mean EARLY 2012.
Information can be found here.
Sep 7, 2011EDIT: I'd like to suggest to everyone, since it has become quite a nuisance for you guys to check 30+ links to see who's currently streaming and updating of this thread is not getting as real-time-updated as I'd like to, that you can go to www.justin.tv and www.twitch.tv and type Diablo 3 and it will give you a list of users that should be streaming the F&F beta in real time. I hope this helps you guys.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
UPDATE (15/09/11): Considering that the main website now has a Stream List system I'm changing the first post to be a plain list of "stream links" (and removing the whole Online/Offline split.
Also, I decided to keep all VODs here, after thinking it through. Many are being redirected to this thread and don't wanna look for another thread about videos, so I'll keep it all in one place.
Let's put them all together, as you guys post it, I'll edit the first one.
Also, I'll try to update the stream's status in real time while I'm on.
Keep in mind though that their status might not be accurate at all times. I reccomend checking even the "Offline" streams every now and then, cause they might be back up in a time when no mods are online to edit this list.
At the end of the post there are links to VODs of some of the streams. Check those out if no streams please you/if you couldn't watch streams.

Aug 31, 2011The Wizard will be the most played class. The most powerful in PvE. The most overpowered in PvP.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The class everyone will complain how much better she is than other classes and how much worse she is compared to the Sorc
And it will be the first class I'll roll. Yes, as a female. Yes, I don't care a couple friends are going to make fun of me playing as an "asian girl".

They use to give dates. Then "certain" people would complain whenever a date was pushed back. So what did Blizzard do, stop giving dates.
Don't be mad at Blizzard. Be mad at the People who complained.
Step 1: Put these people inside the bush
Step 2: Blizzard stops beating around the bush
Step 3: Blizzard starts beating the bush
Step 4: We're all happy
