Diablo 3

Blizzard announces it. A good intro film and some gameplay from the Barbarian.

Diablo III

I cant wait, I like the Diablo franchise much better than the Warcraft and Starcraft one. But Damn Blizz is in full swing, 3 games from each franchise in the same year? Jeez!

They are capitalizing on the cash they have won from WoW. WoW will always have respectable subscription numbers but I think they know the hay day of WoW is fading.

Diablo will probably be a HUGE success in both numbers of sales and online coop play.

The gameplay is going to be fast, furious and way over the top. I am loving the samples of gameplay so far

Blizzard is quite excellent at keeping secrets that is for sure

I just completed going over ever detail on that site. Just watching the videos at full screen, gave my video card fits and starts.

They don't list system requirements yet, but it's a safe assumption that I'll need a new system to run that.

To me, it looks like they let WoW influence the traditional Diablio game play. At least they kept it at 3/4 view.

and although they haven't released the system requirements yet. Some info is out if you pick apart the FAQ's. There is an article about it here.

Blizzard snubs Nvidia with Diablo 3 - The INQUIRER

i can't wait til they incorporate the ability to go to first person view and continue to fight as if you were in a race car...they hold back so much of the technology in order to make more money and that in itself turns me off to the product.... i'll stick with God of War Until they decide to please me and only me.

That would absolutely kill diablo. it's not a first person magic-em-up, and it never will be.

If you want that, just go for WoW. you can first person that game. why you'd want to, i don't know.

It's nothing to do with money, it's about preserving the way the game always had been. If they wanted to make it first person when diablo first game out, they could have. it'd be like doom with wands. which would suck.

That would be the game Hexan. You could play as a spell castor or as a fighter in first person and it was built on the DOOM engine.

it sucked very much. The Diablo look has changed a bit but I hope the control and feel hasn't changed that much. That's what made the game so good in the first place.

wow, i totally forgot about that series. I think i've got copies still somewhere. I used to play that.

I think really it would have been 'heretic' which 'hexen : beyond heretic' and later 'hexen II' were sequels of.

i suppose also 'rise of the triad' could come in to that category as well.

I think you're right about that. I haven't played it but the one time and then went back to the original DOOM.

Never tried Rise of the Triad tho.

DOOM is still my favorite twitch game to play.


Who wants to take bets on how long it takes someone on BattleNet to create a female barbarian named Charsi?

for those that don't remember, if you play Diablo II with a Barb, when you approach the blacksmith in act 1 (Charsi) she is all excited to see a barbarian.

Although it looks a lot better and pleasing to the eye at first.. I can't shake the notion that it seems more.. 'colorful' (?) in a way.

Or how long it takes to create a magic character by the name of Decard Cain

I wanna do that.

I met a guy on WoW boulderfist server who had a priest called DecardCain. Was quite funny because he came up to me at lvl 60 asking me how much something was worth
