    posted a message on Where to buy Diablo prints?

    Check out the art section on the official diablo site to get an idea for what the official art looks like and what's been available. Other than posters sold in the blizzard store, you're probably not going to find much else. Diablo historically doesn't get much merchandise.


    You might be better off getting high res art printed yourself.

    posted a message on Barbarian's Tattoos

    The blue warpaint is very reminiscent of scottish warpaint (famously seen in the move Braveheart) but seems like that block color style was used more for the D3 Barbarian, rather than D2. The D2 Barb looks like he is wearing something closer to viking or norse paint/tattoos. Since it might be difficult to recreate exactly what you are looking for, a nice compromise might be an enlarged rune tattooed on your forearm in blue. Then it will be recognizably Diablo, and also have that Barbarian blue warpaint style you are looking for.

    posted a message on 2018 in Review: The year that changed everything?
    Quote from Mob Dylan»

    It's not just Blizzard that's changing. The entire AAA video game industry is imploding, with a few exceptions of course. I believe there is gonna be another crash like the one we had in '83. The signs are all there; lack of innovation, predatory monetization tactics, releasing incredibly buggy and unfinished products, Ivory tower syndrome, graphics and wow factor while game play takes a backseat, single serving gaming mentality (mobile gaming), alienation of core fan base and damaged reputations.


    Companies that actually care to craft products of superb quality will come out of this ok, others are gonna fall far from grace (already happening). Indie and AA games will get the lions share of the "gamer" market in coming years. Indies are already on a massive upswing while AAA games are having increasingly poor numbers (there are a few that continue to grow and are exceptions).


    This is just my honest opinion about things and in no way to be taken as facts. Research this on your own to come to your own conclusions.

    I feel that this is the most accurate. I don't trust Activision Blizz, even tho I'm very hopeful for Diablo 4, any other new Diablo title, and even a tiny bit for immortal being fun to play. I used to expect top quality from Blizzard games and a dedicated team who valued gameplay and story over pushing microtransactions and money. Those who keep their integrity might make it to the other side, but AAA developers are already going down the shitter because people are tired of the predatory money grabbing and unfinished game releases.


    Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised by more news this coming year, maybe not, but I'm hopeful because I really love the Diablo series. I have loved it since I was ten watching my best friend play on her old shitty mac computer before I was able to purchase it for myself. I'm not willing to give up on it just yet.

    I would guess it to be Khanduran or "common western kingdoms" but some of the Diablo books might get more specific.


    The wiki has some info about languages also https://www.diablowiki.net/Sanctuary#/editor/4

    posted a message on Diablo Immortal: What a MMOARPG should be IMHO

    Not only would I love an open world like that, I'd love it even more if it was in the style of Witcher 3 or similar.


    But it seems as tho they're using the MMOARPG label to tell people that you can play with multiple individuals and the game is ARPG, but doesn't necessarily resemble the traditional MMO that we're used to. I assume this is because of Mobile limitations or an unwillingness to develop in between spaces.

    I think if they had announced or said ANYTHING else about the "other projects" while also having diablo immortal it would have done a lot to stem the flood of disappointment. They started a hype train and got people excited for a game no one really asked for.


    That said, while I am disappointed that it's a mobile game with D3 assets, I'm always interested in more lore/stories and zones to explore. I think there will be things to like in DI, but the platform is not ideal.

    I'm not happy. Hopefully they realize how upset everyone is and pull something out of their ass at the panel.


    I'm still gonna play the mobile game, because I love Diablo, but it's pretty disappointing....

    we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects

    Well, this could mean:
    1) Community manager is trolling.
    2) They show only D4 teaser/cinematic without anything else from D4 and not announcing its genre/gameplay etc.
    3) They announce D4 and show gameplay as we predicted - this then leads to what? They are making Diablo World parallel with D4? Hitting both the aRPG and classic MMO genres with different games, but parallel story? Or going for next gen VR MMO game?


    Could be any of these. We need more clues - that Adria comic coming soon?

    I feel like the blog posts directly indicates that any kind of D4 announcement will be just about the only thing they AREN'T going to announce. A cinematic for a new game and gameplay I think is wishful thinking. But I'm looking forward to any news and comics, etc. :)

    posted a message on Future diablo 4 Ideas. what do you think

    Diablo at its core has always been an ARPG dungeon crawler with heavy emphasis on item hunt. It would be a risk to deviate from that original model, but the culture surrounding those kinds of games has changed. I'm hoping to see a nice heavy ARPG element with that item hunt still present, but I really want set items and legendaries to change, I want runestones, and more build customization, I want to explore more zones and meet new characters and get good character development, and I want a creepier atmosphere.


    Act V Reaper of Souls was heads and tails above the vanilla game in terms of characters, exploration, writing, and spookiness, and even the new zones were really interesting and creepy. It felt more like an M rated game. I want more time to explore and flesh out zones with things to do (questing perhaps?) I don't want an MMO, but I'd like a similar kind of experience, only with single player. I guess a bit like the Witcher, tho that would lose the top-down look of a dungeon crawler.


    I'd love to see less quest driven dialogue that beats us over the head with telling us where to go so much that we could go through the motions asleep. Having to think for even 5 seconds about where we are, what we're looking for, and where we should be going would be an improvement. Diablo 2 never had a blinking yellow circle on the minimap telling you exactly where you needed to go. D3 was a little too linear with leading you through campaign by the nose. Also bosses were always too easy, normal mode was too easy. I think there was too much emphasis on making the game too accessible for new players. People aren't stupid, they can learn new things without it being dumbed down.


    I'd be incredibly disappointed if the nephalem became an evil character, and I'd also be incredibly disappointed if everything was retconned. I LIKE the characters, I LIKE my characters, and I want them to do well. Making us choose between good and evil sounds lame tbh, because it's always been a game about maintaining the balance and fighting the minions of Hell. I don't want the characters I've grown to like to be forgotten, I just want them to be written better. I want the game to get a great lore treatment like so many of the diablo novels did.


    This got a little long lol, but I'm very passionate about the characters and world, and I want to see more of it, and to see it handled well.


    Edit: I personally don't much care for PVP, but I want it to be added to the game because I know a lot of people missed that. Also I think D3 still has a lot of cool end-game content that should stay, but some that needs heavy revision.

    This has already been disproven a couple times. He isn't tapped for Diablo, from Blizzard, it's a show with the word Diablo in it.

    Quotes and direct reply don't seem to be working for me BUT-


    I haven't played D2 in at least a year, so I see how some hints would be easy to miss, but I'm hesitant to be 100% sure about anything.


    I like a lot of the possibilities brought up here: I'd love a D2 HD release, and I'd love an open world type of game, the only thing I want is for D3 to tie up its loose ends, which will hopefully be done with a DLC.


    I'm cautiously optimistic, because we've been burned at every blizzcon since Reaper of Souls and Necro, but very hopeful that this time they're actually serious with some announcements lol.

    Many people are mentioning that there are hints that they are doing D2 HD re-make. Where are people getting this from?

    posted a message on Next Diablo - What do you believe in?

    I don't like the idea of an MMO as it will likely be "good nephalem vs evil nephalem" or something similar, and I think that is an extremely stupid idea. If they have a different plan for "sides" or just no opposing sides other than heroes vs the burning hells I might be inclined to give it a chance. I also honestly doubt that Diablo has the same universal appeal to be a successful MMO and I believe that Blizzard knows this. Warcraft was successful because it could draw a much wider audience. Horror has always been pretty niche. I don't think they'll take the risk.


    A darksouls/open world type of game in the Diablo universe I would absolutely love, but I have a very strong suspicion that they won't do this. I also find it a bit unlikely that Blizzard will deviate from the core concept of the game which is dungeon crawl/item hunt.


    It's a bit late for an expansion, and to keep up with the indistry tthey need to use a newer game engine, so I think we'll be getting a new game. Hopefully a sequel to not scrap the established characters who have unfinished stories. I really hope they get better writers, as Reaper of Souls was better executed than the entire vanilla game. No sublety, dialogue was very bad for bosses, game isn't even a challenge unless you start on expert, everything was made to be "epic" so nothing actually felt like it was, for an M rated game it felt rather childish, too much dialogue that was basically a vehicle to explain extremely easy quests, not enough character development for Leah, a blinking yellow circle on your map made it easy to find everything, you could be asleep and play this game.


    I really love this game series, and I want it to be good. I hope Blizzcon will pleasantly surprise me.
