Aritcle on Diablo 3 Petition for Renewed artistic direction

A fair amount of gamers have signed a internet petition about to try to get blizzard to renew there artistic direction of diablo 3. Images show what they are talking about and what they want. They have over 64,000 people that signed it. (Diablo III, PC)

I agree about it needing to be darker. But why add film grain...that IMO looks crappy.
TopDudeMan  +   1026d ago
It does look better with the darker art style.

Their choices are far worse imo . Generic dark , grey and dull ? Diablo 1 nor 2 werent exactly in those tones .

D2 even had a desert zone with full one sunshine outside and a lush jungle .

Even the interior of d1 the darkest game of the serie had lots of light .

this is straight from diablo 2

I doubt Blizzard will even take notice of the complaint further than they already did , nor should they . Let's not pretend the petitionner were going to boycott the game .

At worst all you need if you care is the attention of some modder

I agree

besides if you really want it to look as bland as 90 percent of other games out there, just turn down the saturation yourself...

Much nicer. It looks like it fits the mood better. I do not like d3 art style at all tbh

I think it looks good the way it is.

This petition is extremely old. Blizzard said they will not change it, no matter how many people sign it. And with consideration, 64k signatures is nothing in comparison to the amount of people who will buy this game (and how many of those 64k will buy it as well). I, personally, like the art direction of it and I think this argument was a thing of the past. Once you are playing it, you won't constantly say to yourself "I hate this because of how bright it looks" but rather "I am enjoying this game, thank you Blizzard". But, that is my opinion, why can't most Diablo fans just be glad we are getting a D3 to begin with? Instead, let's complain about it. -_-

I don't think "Blizzard" really give a damn. Game is ruined for consoles anyway so meh.

So if you're playing a game for its graphics, what the hell are you doing playing anything from blizzard?

No offense, but a five years old computer can run this maxed.

I have a second older computer with a core2quad q6600, a geforce 8800 gts 512mb and 6 gb of ram and it runs this maxed fine without any trouble.

I'd rather people petition for an actual RPG experience. D3 has taken out stat allocation, skill points, talent trees and anything else that genuinely makes you feel unique, which is especially important in an online centric game. Now they even autoset your skill buttons for you because herp derp we're all apparently retarded. Next step is possibly the game playing itself.

Path Of Exile on the other hand is at a roughly similar development stage and is honestly looking much more like a refined D2. (I'm currently in the closed beta for it myself and can confirm that it is tons of fun)

D3 does have stat points u place every level. As for the no skill points I gotta agree heavily on that. Why they went the route they did is beyond me. They even ruined pvp with gay arena battles. Takes the whole random encounter of being hostiled away. I'm excited for its release cuz blizzard has never made a bad game imo but I am abit worried.

ps vita remote play trailer shows diablo 3 on ps3!

i guess you guys noticed it too!:)
webbsod  +   1026d ago
i personally like the work they have done and the beta looks great. but it is bright and much less dark then the past diablos.this petition was started shortly after the beta was started.

i think the images look better how blizzard made it.

gamers could always make it darker or there could be some darker settings to make it more like that right?

well wii u showed some games that where from ps3 as if it was on there wii u system
Kaizin514  +   1026d ago
Yea, change your gamma in game, or mess around with brightness and contrast till it suits you, these options have been around for years, lol.
NeoTribe  +   1021d ago
As if this game isn't taking long enought u come out, now u got people that want them to change the entire graphical appearance of it.... gtfo...
