Crap framerate typical of the PC.
I'm glad it's still a top down dungeon crawler and Blizz didn't cave in and make it a FPS. THANKYOU BLIZZ!! This game is going to F'in rock.
yeaaaahhhh looks old school and great at the same time. this was the first game i ever played online and battle.net wont let me down!
My thoughts exactly. Looks exactly like Diablo 2, but with new classes and some crazy awesome graphics. It makes me so happy that they kept that same isometric view and graphical style, but brought it in to today's standards. If they had changed its style I wouldn't have been happy at all! Looks good.
Oh man, it looks really good. Blizzard does not disappoint yet again. I was afraid they would go the cartoony route a la World of Warcraft, but I too am glad they retained the gritty realistic look. I hope they have really cool armor too. The fights look almost as epic as something you'd see in a Lord of The Rings movie. It's just too bad that I'm much older than I was when I played Diablo 1 and 2. Shame I won't have as much time to play it.
well world of warcraft wascartoony becouse warcraft was cartoony. diablo onthe otherhand was never cartoony.
"Stay awhile and listen" Nice. As long as this game isn't subscription-based, it's a definite buy for me.
The online is on battle.net and that's a free service, so there won't be any monthly subscriptions
Is it not coming to Platforms???
wow just ... WOW!
it's diablo baby!!!! I was just looking up info on Diablo three a couple of weeks ago and lo and behold..... Greatness!
never played a Diablo before...anyone care to explain what it is and what the main features are?
The best thing you could do is buy Diablo II and be a happy camper. Diablo is just one of those addictive games that will suck you in and never let you go. You will thank me later for this advice if you do indeed buy it and play it through, I am confident of that.
think of every RPG that pulled you in, and made you fail classes in college, they basically came from this game. well maybe not but for me yes.
Looks like the Marvel games from Raven Soft. Anyone explain how its different or better then those games? I like the Marvel games a lot but I don't see the type of reaction for those games that I am seeing for this game so I'm just wondering.
WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WW im drooling over my keyboard. they manteined the isometric view :D and the clean HUD BTW the soundtrack is incredible like always.
But i'm not sure I like the fact they carried over their World of Warcraft design tendencies. One of the things about Diablo that worked so well was its realistic art style. I don't want to see Diablo turning into another variant of the cartoony World of Warcraft look. In the up close view of the character dialog, they even use WoW-like gesturing. Also, I hope they don't try to dumb down the gameplay for the newer generation. Diablo II was really hardcore IMO, and if they start adding all these features like floating health orbs and such (where the tension of having to remember to use a potion in mid-battle?) I hope it doesn't take away from what makes Diablo so challenging in the first place.
5 disagrees and nobody bothering to start up a decent conversation on why they do so. Typical N4G behavior...
I liked the animation, the hardness of the bodies and simply brutal interaction with the scenario. This all very rich and stable. Although i see that the game is very heavy. Now we await for release date.
Awesome!!! Can anyone say production values? Whoever is in charge of PR in Blizzard should get a price, they ar doing everything perfectly... Man this game is gonna rock, my pc needs and upgrade asap as I plan to buy this game on release.
COPPPED! give me a release date so it feels EVEN longer until d3 is released. it hurts but i love the pain :O
First off the game looks amazing effect wise and environments are well done. However the game seems extremely linear there was nothing to explore no having to look for the entrance to that just followed the path. ALSO I HATE THE WITCH DOCTOR. Blizzard nerf it take it out destroy it I want my necromancer. That thing looked like an insult to necromancers. I hope they didnt take out necro and replace it with that crap. They said it was new but it has all the skills of a necro just a little revamped. Edit: BTW i was suprised at how long the footage and how much they showed us I thought it was still in a very very early stage like brainstorming lol based off this it look like it could release mid next year.
yeah men. i want my necromancer back, not this half assed mixture of warlock and necro.
I used to have a level 62 Necromancer (offline character) before my HDD crashed and my backup service lost my data. I'm currently working on an Assassin, as I have never played as one before. My next character is going to be a Paladin, though I hear those are only really fun if you play online. Is that true?
i played years with a pala online, it's great but i prefer my nekro online, especially if you play with another necro hehehe
This game looks awesome! Hopefully they will make a PS3 version because my PC won't be able to handle it and I have no high speed internet at home. :(
This game needs to stay with the PC. Keep you console babies away from dumbing down a very good series. If your computer can't handle it then maybe it's time to upgrade. The same way you did when you went from PS to PS2 to PS3. Ok maybe not the PS because that system was probably before your time. PC FTW
You should know what you are talking about. First of all, I've been gaming for over 20 years! I didn't say anything about dumbing it down, in fact, I hate that companies do that. I want a straight port. I can't afford to upgrade my computer anytime soon. I have bills, family and investments that have to take precedence over gaming. I would rather spend $60 on a game than hundreds on upgrading my PC just to play one game. This PC gamer vs console gamer / PS3 vs Xbox360 crap is just lame. We're all gamers, have fun and play!
BAN FANS men you are the first sane gamer i find in years. we are all gamers, fanboy wars are bad and childish.
PC gaming alive and well...almost single handedly.....
Amen, brother you speak the truth. Though i personally dont like wow or i enjoy starcraft, to an extent, Diablo is by far their greatest accomplishment IMO. They have recreated exactly what all diablo fans have been asking for and added more. The quality of their products are without question among the top in the industry. Glad to see a dev's that are s till truly committed to keeping gaming on pc alive.
since 1995 (just to cut down on the list) # 1995 - The Lost Vikings II # 1995 - Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness # 1996 - Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal # 1996 - Diablo # 1998 - StarCraft # 1998 - StarCraft: Brood War # 2000 - Diablo II # 2001 - Diablo II: Lord of Destruction # 2002 - Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos # 2003 - Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne # 2004 - World of Warcraft # 2007 - World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade yeah blizzard and valve only make awesome games (although i despise wow)
this game looks so awesome
I need a bib
Never played a Diablo game but I'm definitely a sucker for a good RPG and this one looks amazing. Gonna have to pick this one up.
Where have i been? this came out of nowhere! it... just came out of nowheere! i didn't see it coming! never had a chance... fewer reasons to get a ps3. i need an entirely brand new computer now. this and statcraft? they just really want me to get a new computer. so be it.
To anyone who has never played a Diablo game: YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. I could even go back to the original (circa 1996) and have a blast playing through the entire game.
The first diablo did come out for ps1. I mean how awesome would that be if we got it on our psp's? I would dl it in a heartbeat.
..but that looks awesome!
Seriously? That looks awesome to you? What's wrong with me then? This looks like most of you will be paying 50 bucks for a newer rendition of Gauntlet... ...good luck with all of that!
wats up with diablo 3 ive never played the first 2 can anyone explain to me thnx
I never really played Diablo...perhaps it's time to go trackdown a battlechest.
I can't get enough of this. This will be the best game of the year whenever it is released. I hoping 2009.
I was so worried that Diablo in all of its epic glory wouldn't survive the transition to 3D and the modern era, but it appears that Blizzard has done it again. I spent over 2,000 hours on D2 and I'm sure I'll spent double that on this one if it's half as good as it looks!!!
overhyped game. point click point click point click. wow.
every comments i see from you are negative or super-pro-360. There's a fanboy website about xbox 360s you should hang out on their forums. Stop posting here, everybody have enought of your stupid comments.
He is in the open zone, as long as he isn't being racist he can say if Diablo sucks or not. It's his opinion, and he has a right to say what ever he likes. If you don't like it, go back to the gamer zone where everything is censored and lovy dovy.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs HELLLLL YEAHHHHHHHHHH
Looks F#cking awesome
Check out the Cinematic Teaser on http://www.blizzard.com/dia... It's pretty sweet.
I l'd ol at "Come, stay a while and-" "It is time for shedding our enemies' blood." I remember the endless times he finished that sentence on 2. *Shudder* Tristram re-reappearing, yes or no?
i'd love to play this on a big ass screen with buddies one day.
ps3 can't render a big 1080p signal.
Actually your RROD machine cant do 1080p native. So you just got PWNED NOOB!
actually, there are no games on PS3 which run in 1080p.
system error: the signal is too big! ok, I'll settle for a mid-size 1080p signal then :P kid, don't you have a lego toaster to maintain? lol EDIT: actually, I played GT5P in 1080p last night (on a modest 50' plasma, I admit, nothing too 'big' :) I know it is something you can only have wet dreams about but for me it was very real and... absolutely gorgeous. Ps3 is the ONLY console that can render true 1080p
Actually, PS3 can't even output a true 720P signal. The GPU rasterizers are post-gigaflop based with semi-transister radiates, which basically means that all games run at around 540i and are deinterlaced to form a simulated 720p signal, but still, no real 1080p, or even 1080i signals can output from a PS3. I'm not lying.
no proof = invalid statement. Period. And if the PS3 cannot output a 1080p signal, then how come my PS3 displays on the TV at 1080p and I can watch Blu-Ray movies in 1080p? BTW, Prologue does do 1080p, but only in the garage. 1280x1080 and 2xAA 1280x720 and 4xAA 1920x1080 no AA http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... if you look on this list, there are actually a few games that run native 1080p: http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... so before you open your mouth to the internet, do a little research first
I'm drunk or something... ...somebody tell me why we're excited for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2???
I was never a PC gamer and never played the 1st or 2nd Diablo but I liked Gaunlet and this looks like the upgrade + it's online so it seems good....If my PC can play it I'll buy. Oh and LoenSK4L we're excited because it's got the possibilities to be a great game(don't let the looks fool you) and it's very nostalgic for a lot of gamers who played and loved the original 2. And yeah your probably drunk :P
Diablo games are on my favorite games of all time list... ... But this one has to get better, also didnt like the witch doctor thing, they have time. They wont let me down with Diablo! Needs better animations. I love the isometric view... ooh this is going to rock!!
what they thinking with the witch doctor. I like however how they have male/female now so if I want a sorc or ama I prob dont need to be a woman char although i didnt mind it really.
I never liked Diablo 2, probably because i played it 1 year ago, so the graphics sucked, but this new Diablo looks fun. Would be nice a port to console, PS3 hopefuly.
I loved Diablo 2 and i hope this is just as good if not better!
on the PS3
You're an idiot.
