those big ugly boogie man looking things that explode nasties remind anyone of Dead Space a bit? Game looks great. Super stoked!
Play.com are quoting on Jan 24. But dont put your money on it releasing then but its a decent guess. I want to play the game when its ready though. Dont know anyone who got in for the beta but plenty of people streaming videos of it now.
I don't get why many people whine about D3. It's a hack and slash game, not an RPG, what did you expect ? With a good story & cutscenes, challenging dungeons/bosses, interesting ability trees and a good variety of equipment/weapons/spells/scrolls, this game will be just fine IMO. Sure, this video doesn't showcase much excitement, probably because it's a speed run of a higher level character running through lower level dongeons.
@Nodashi haha, i see what you did there. still, diablo 1 had very nice fluff, and on top of that a consistent gothic medieval theme that gave it personality. i humbly agree, though, that d2's story was a mess.
I can't level up more because the cap at this point of the Beta is 13.
Yeah, since this is a replay of the same quests over and over, the Templar is introduced through the end of the Beta but since it carries over, you keep the one you have but the game still gives you the same quest to acquire it. But the banter between the two shows that Blizzard did catch it and added that stuff to help with the disbelief.
@Mega_Loser Yeah, cause Diablo 1 and 2 was knows for the incredibly deep story, the open world gameplay and the meaningful choices, right? XD
Meh... Nothing really new. Blizzard really doesn't like change. AI look pretty dumb as well. MMO are the lesser of the RPG games.
prepare for cheesy narration and a poor storyline. but i'm sure that huge animelike shoulderpads make up for it.
I'm seriously so discouraged at the number of people that are hating on Diablo III. I think the game looks absolutely phenomenal and I cannot wait to play it. People need to stop complaining so much. Blizzard did a fabulous job.
honestly, this is one of the most boring speed runs i've seen in awhile. the path seems to linear. it seems like a group of 4 would take through this in like 10 minutes to loot items and make real world money easily.
ambience looks fabulous . I never was a fan of speed running anything . reminded me of WoW instance runs . looting - fun factor ... bleh . I'll still get this game ! I'm sure the other areas are as charismatic as the crypts and cathedral we see here !
For some reason this feels more like a split between the classic action RPG and World of Warcraft. The voiceacting, the effects, etc., it's just too WoWish in my opinion. So if I'm correct in assuming this, this showed the entire Act 1. A couple outdoor areas and then the rest is inside some all rather similar cathedrals. Diablo 2 had many outdoor areas in Act 1, including: Blood Moor, Cold Plains, Black Marsh, Cloisters, underground areas, and many indoor and underground locations. I suppose I'm just hoping this isn't showing the entire Act 1.
think i like D2 more, but who knows, they are still in beta and no sign of wrapping up this 10yrs game
@Raged4Life @don_pafciu I don't know about you guys, but a harsh, rude, less feminine, kiss blowing Japanese school girl with a Russian accent killing zombies and monsters sounds like a dream girl. :P
@don_pafciu harsh rude and less feminine? You run around killing zombies and monsters. How did you want them to add personality? Make her blow kisses and speak like a Japanese school girl?
I'll still buy it, but my interest decreases the more I see stuff like this. I think games have progressed beyond mindless button mashing and potion drinking.
Female monk was the first class I wanted to play. But the russian accent made this character somehow harsh, rude, less feminine. It makes her completely unplayable for me :(
It appears all the mobs are just balloons full of blood. Each one of them explodes with the slightest of contact. Is this fun? Looks boring as hell to me. I was hoping for more...
I like how your character regenerates their Mana/Equivalent so fast and easily. This game looks like it will surpass the first two games in both game-play and story telling. I like the look of game engine, no doubt it will be easy to run but still look good when it comes out. Blizzard made the right decision with the stats auto-raising themselves on leveling up and how the new skill system works. OMG this game is going rock. I will almost certainly play this game more then D2 which all together was a few hundred hours! I only played two classes in D2; a few runs as the Barbarian and a run through Normal and part way through Nightmare as a Bear Druid. There is a good chance I will try each class out for a run through Normal. I was hoping for Blizzard to remake Diablo 1 and 2 but this new game will do nicely. :)
lol... 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,1,1,1,1,1....... More monotinous than WOW's instance 'magecraft'... It is what it is I guess. I think I got this decades fill playing dungeon hunter on PSN for 15 bucks. I suggest if you're thinking about feeding Blizzard money and getting this, at least check out DH if you have a PS3
Diablo 2 went 3D, nothing more... = how to kill 100 000 000 beasts with same attack over and over... -.-' (ps - portals are same like in Titan Quest xD) ps2 - Moonstone is grandfather of the genere!!!
Blah blah color in my brown /// That will be modded to suit just like most all Blizzard games. DOTA? Starcraft MMO anyone?/// Blah Blah boring, not impressed by passively watching a video /// That is a beta speed run with an already maxed character which skips all the secondary content, plot, skillups, even the loot///. Blah blah game looks like Diablo 2 with graphic overhaul /// Which we've known for what? two years? and never expected anything but considering this series is essentially the father of the genre/// Blah blah day one buy regardless. Peasants.
Well they may have ruined the gothic style and grit that was in the old games but at least they kept the HUD the same.
Awesome game, there some things I would change. But, they have made more positive changes which I never thought of. Those make up for the negatives easily.
Despite the negative commentators I still think it will be fun. After all its hard to judge a game after seeing the same beta being played 100's of times.
