What to expect? I can still remember the fun times I had when I played Diablo 1 and 2. For us that has been playing games since Diablo 1 or even before, I won't expect it to be revolutionary to gaming or at least to its genre. I do expect it to be better than the prequels.
@MrAWESOME7 dunno, Blizzard might have a knack for effing up their mmo with new expansions, they sure have a knack for releasing only finished great games as well ever since orcs vs humans (and maybe before?). I'd be surprised if it wasn't another great game in the row of previous achievements ... but there IS a lot of competition these days :)
Also, maybe i should tell my wife that we need a break to start seeing other games, I mean people for a few months.
Taking off from work May 15th. I'll probably be waiting hours to get on with my luck though. At least I won't have to work though.
Check out the gameplay and you will be like "fail". Check this out you will be like "awesome". Don't let these trailers deceive you. The music was good though.
@nechiken Both of those games had a story, granted they weren't the big, rich, novelesque stories that we're getting used to these days, but they did have a story. If you don't like the games, don't play them! It's that simple! You're allowed to not like it!
Can someone tell me why this game's so anticipated? I recently bought and tried both Diablo 2 and Torchlight, and there doesn't seem to be any game objective. I just get thrown into a village and I'm expected to go out and quest without any purpose or story. What's the point?
Great cinematic, but the dialogue could use a little bit of refinement. "You thought you were so clever!" Not the dialogue I expect from an ancient demon.
"None of this makes any sense to me.." while reading and making notes on old texts... its like me doing my history homework -_-'.
I bet the critics are going to take every little mistake they make and make it really worse than it is because the game had 10+ years of developpement.
I was fairly excited about Diablo III when I started playing the beta a couple of months ago only to experiance dissapointment with each beta patch as things either got deleted or nerfed. Four player max in multiplayer? Only six skills? No runeword recipes? Auto leveling? I just find it amazing that what could be done 10 years ago can't be done today. There is much speculation that all this simplification has to do with simultaneous consol port development. I don't know about that, but it's increasingly obvious to me that Blizzard is going for a more casual gamer appeal this time. I canceled my collector's edition preorder and will wait for the reviews/patches before I buy.
Yet another game I am highly anticipating, why does it have to be that all the games that excite me aren't out yet? Lol
BETA is crap, too short and far to easy. Which i guess is suppose to be the difficulty to expect on normal mode so ppl can easily enjoy the story. Game is said and seems to be very ready looking. I would expect and hope to finaly have a release date in March, so May -June release. But we've tried to cross this bridge far to much. The game could be a disapoint, but still will likely be fun. My bigger bone to pick is making us use Left-mouse click to use spells... this is going to murder much on hardcore, Id rather have 1-5 and right-click. (I say hardcore, cause who gives a crap if you die on soft, really) It seems there is really over 150 spells/abilitys per character. Customizible banners!!! and you can drop it off anywhere to show it off..... .... .... ... >.> .... ... how very... thoughtful. Well im bored out of my mind with games, sooo much disapointment, all they do is push pretty graphics and passible gameplay. I hope D3 is great.
beta is less than i expected, too much like dungeon siege 3. maybe my hopes were just too high again.
I know some startcraft 16-21 kids never play Diablo 1 and 2 before. Seriously the beta runs fast and smooth I really don't know what they're waiting for. This should be the best game of 2012 no doubt.
WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR??? UNTIL WE ALL GROW UP AND DON'T HAVE TIME TO PLAY? MOVE MOVE MOVE AND GET THE SELLS BEFORE ITS TIME UP AND NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT DIABLO!
after some consideration, it seems to me that blizzard pretty much just took mannoroth's form and revamped it for d3. there's just so many similarities. where's the imagination. they reinvented diablo's form quite well in d2 from anything prior. but after all it is blizzard and they do like to throw in cameos from older games into new ones. i wouldn't be surprised if some of the burning legion showed up in d3.
for all who don't know he's Azmodan, the lord of sin(the other demons around him are the 7 sins) he's a lesser evil (not a prime evil), Diablo also appears in this one, so that's why the game is still named Diablo(you'd think people had figured this one out... considering how bosses come back oh so often in WoW) and in chapter 3 you'll also get to fight Belial the lord of lies(another lesser evil) btw CG is awesome love it... can't w8 for it to come out:D
@rhymesmatter @RIIIIKU Are both of you mad?! Lol, don't get me wrong, actually I always played Diablo cause of its story! Never liked the hack and slash too much, but always loved the search for demons, fallen angels, corrupted amazons and of course, Diablo himself.
with last itnerview it's not azmodan then it's his sin general He sit on Red throne seems in hell, also This video could be final cutscene after beating final boss in diablo 3, it's like hse's writing story because cairn had died, as we watched demo cairn is alive and from this video i see that he's dead. and thsi video could be awesome finale :D
lol these guys never learn don't they. Never trust your minions if u want to finish the job quickly and avoid being kick ass by heroes.
this game will be the best of 2012 without doubt. And i think world of diablo will soon come as well. We have lore and devils for at least 3 expansions.
