I am not a big fan of this gaming genre, but I loved the heck out of the Doablo series. This is awesome news!

Of course we are, but still, I'm not happy with the style their presenting so far.

I seriously don't see how people can compare D3's graphics to WoW's. Oh well I guess some folks are just looking for something to nag about and won't be happy until they ruin it for themselves. Honestly I love D3's update graphics and they look very nice with out getting all emo with grays and brown and yet they aren't eye blinding bright with color as you see in WoW.
All you @!#holes claiming we're just complaining to complain can kiss my ass.


Some of us played diablo for different reasons. I for one hand loved the gritty gothic feel along with the blood and all the gore. You may have loved it for w/e other reason.

Point is, I'm not happy with the style, and I'm pointing out why I'm not.
If you're not going to have a discussion about it, and are just going to complain about us/me arguing, please, just shutup already.

Hell yeh I'm getting this game. When you put the DII and DIII screens next to each other I can really see how much the styles have changed. I actually prefer the WoW/cartoony style better than the real-life style of DII.

Remember how crappy D2 looked on our awesome 32-bit cards, trying to play a 16-bit color game (at least for ATI card owners)? Ugh.
Before I forget about this game for the year- I have to agree that Blizzards' success is in large part due to the ability to play a very well made game across a wide range of PC's, but I would really like to see them get away from the WOW/WC3 look and quit kissing up to grandaddy's 6-year-old PC already.

You know, there were some fairly colorful/not filled with the darkness of doom areas in DII. One or two maps from D3 shouldn't be taken as an indicator of the overall mood the devs are going for, it changes with the area and events. It "is" a little smoother than I thought I would like, but watching the gameplay vids makes me think that won't be a real issue.

And most of them were pretty boring, namely above ground Act I, Act II and Act V's highlands. The trend? The above ground areas were mostly bland and uninspired. Diablo is a game of evil and the dungeons have always best reflected that. Take the original game for example, it had fantastic atmosphere and the town actually made sense.

That's funny, i liked the second act in D2 best
It doesn't need to be gory and gritty just because you're hunting monsters, in my opinion. I actually prefer diversity instead of just one dungeon, like in D1. Gimme gritty "real" stuff, gimme shiny, jungles, whatever. I hate games with just one setting, it's boring. I couldn't play Doom 3 or Crysis for these reasons. The first one had bump mapped pipes, and the other shiny leaves, whoopty doo.

Granted though, the town in the first Diablo was very, very nice.

There's a video stream of wizard gameplay footage on the information page. I love the time sphere.

Coming from someone who played Diablo to death and has never cared about most of their other games, I have to say it just doesn't look evil enough.

Hardcore mode might be a little too tough if the boss monsters can just grab you and bite your head off. Although I must admit that was really friggin cool.

Maybe it should just do it to hirelings or something.

You can register your Diablo 2/LOD cd-key at the blizzard store and download and install the game from there

My Diablo 2 discs are getting damaged so this is awesome
