hmm... Titan Quest was billed as a Diablo clone... this looks like a clone of Titan Quest. And not a good looking one at that.
wonder if they'll get a healer to follow autocasting spells .... no offense just a defensive focus ...
wow lol cant believe ppl are waiting for this trash isnt scrolling games part of the past? no way am i spending £30-£40 pounds on this trash make games for the present and future not go back to the past
Looks good, but they are gonna have to improve the animations, I am sure a lot of the choppiness was from the video itself.. I expect far smoother character animations, combat animations, and death animations. Other than that, I am really excited!
October 21+22, 2011 is Blizzcon. Lets hope the beta is running in August so they can announce a release date at Blizzcon! Had my copy on preorder since Nov last year! I even made my own Diablo III desktop wallpaper months ago.
The inside levels are better, open scene must have better environment interactions. The key is that theres aways something secret and random. Items are collectable where you learn the game with fun.
The game looks good. Just something about Blizzard turns me off these days that goes beyond video. They make good games, but dealing with the BS to play them is a bit much. Plus the fact this game has been done before. IT's more of the same. More of the same BS dealing with the people who play their games. A bunch of obsessed people who don't know how to have fun.
Its so much better the game being made well than rushing it out just for the profits. Diablo II is still played to this day because the gameplays that darn good!
@NicholasT33: even though I want to agree with you, I cannot because it`s been too long man, too long! can`t wait for it to "show" :(
@bencst13 Agreed 100% I don't care how long it takes ! So long as it's a true work of art for the fans.
I'm all for not rushing the development of Diablo 3, as long as it's to deliver what will hopefully be Blizzard's finest work. By the looks of things, it darn well might end up being a masterpiece.
@GallowJig And it seemed to me that the first videos didn't have this feel to 'em. At least the videos featuring the Barbarian, Witch Doctor, the very first ones, I could still feel the same atmosphere from DI and DII, only a lot more polished and modern. Hope this comes out differently at launch.
Hmmm, I sure hope the game will have a more dark and grim setting than what was shown in this preview. The first Diablo could be somewhat scary with the gothic looks of dungeons and caves, I loved it :D More of that in Diablo III please. Oh and yeah, take your time Blizzard, we want it to be good.
no no.. don't listen to Raven. Dont hurry up. Every other studio hurries up ... take your time Blizz
diablo 3 is going to be awesome. some of the animations brought back memories of playing d2. at 1:10 reminded me of the secret cow level...
Never really cared for the Melee followers in Diablo II, Well i guess that probably because i was always either necro or druid and had spammed as many summoning followers as i could :\
Shadows it seems are not existant in this game. Shadows makes great atmosphere and give some great looks to games. I wonder if this is how will be or they will implemented it later.
OMG its not diablo, but Copy of Wow.. i hate Wow end it's locks i will hate Diablo III to :( where went the good old diablo ? dark and scary ? witch make u play it for months :/ don't take it wrong way, butTorch light looks better then it.. even whit so bad grapich.. :(
Templar = WoW paladin? Get back to work on something new you lazy blizzard programmers!! PS - Release the goddamn Diablo 3 now
I hope everyone remembers how bad Starcraft 2 looked a few years before the release, I am sure Diablo 3 will get the same turn-around eventually. Right now, from the technical side, the game looks rather bad(especially close up). Lack of lighting, no shadowing, aliasing...
Pretty sure this trailer was done on the LOWEST possible graphic settings. I mean COME ON... we have SEEN the great graphic style that they have developed in previous sneak peaks. Why this one was done on horrible settings, that make it look like a bad Torchlight rip-off, we will never know. So don't read too much into it... This isn't the end result of years of hard work. Waiting for D3, baby! :)
The art style does not fit Diablo's atmosphere, this looks like a Saturday morning cartoon. Diablo is a grim game, dark and heavy, you are supposed to feel the weight of awaking evil crushing down on you AND everything around you. The immature art direction will not deliver the "right" message to the player, same can be said about movement/actions speed, characters are supposed to be scared to step forward, carrying the weight of their armor and wounds, fighting el Diablo's minions is a struggle. The art direction and pace would not have worked for God of War, Dead Space or Demon's Souls, how is it different for Diablo? If it doesn't take itself "seriously", I cannot take it seriously, it looks like a joke. You cannot simply say "Hell is breaking loose on Earth, this is a serious matter" in a cut-scene, you also have to show it. It might be fun, but it will go down as the worst decision Blizzard never held back.
lol, Blizzard doesn't care about Diablo players anymore. They're catering D3 to fit its WoW players. Since millions of people play WoW, and only a couple hundred thousand still play the Diablo franchise. If they want to make the most money, they're going for the biggest audience. Thus they're making D3 similar to WoW, so the WoW players have an easy transition. They don't give a s*** about the Diablo legacy. IMO its RIP Diablo...
looks like u misunderstood what's blizzard stylish graphics aplyed to d3 now adays WoW? where??? its darken on dungeons no? what do you expect from open areas... looks like a primordial work for me, like handcrafted textures, very abundant color palete for sure but well mixed to bring a fantasy game that will be DAY ONE BUY!!! ;) like it or hate it but I think everyone will love it!
Man what happened in the transition between Diablo 2 and 3? Stop playing WoW and get back to your dark roots!!!
It's hard to take this sparkly cartoon seriously after playing the Witcher 2. RIP Diablo. Blizzard doesn't do gothic RPGs anymore, only WOW remakes.
