Diablo 3

Recommended Posts

I just hope Steam offers this bad boy. I can't wait. <3 :wub:

Most likely not. Blizzard uses their own form of Digital Distribution. If wanted to, they probably could have done it ages ago.

+1, Blizzard's system is very good and knowing that it's not going anywhere (unlike other first party digital distribution software) is a comfort, although it doesn't really have any benefit over Steam.

But will it be Diablo II with better graphics and new classes?

Diablo 3 is already pretty distinct from Diablo 2 with crafting, PVP arena, 4 player co-op, action bars, runes that modify skills, no health pots, and possibly other things.

 

Be like Diablo 2, no.

Be a Diablo universe game, yes.

Better graphics, yes.

New classes, yes.

 

If Diablo 1 or 2 were never created, this would set the benchmark. I think its cause they waited so long its changes might be a bit drastic for some players. However, you can't just keep releasing the same game with newer graphics. Although some games are like that and they will sell well regardless :(

 

Well I would hope so! D2 doesn't exactly have a plethora of quests by any standard. What is it, five per act?

Roughly 5-6 quests depend on the ACT. Not only are they adding random scripted quests into Diablo 3, there will also be class-specific quests too :D

Wait, so the maximum for multiplayer games is 4 players now?

Oh well, there's always D2 which will always be good and not-sucky. I'm actually interested in Dungeon Siege 3 which looks way more like what D3 should have been. In fact, there's some guy in the trailer with a small version of Tyrael's wings.

Uh, who cares if it isn't a carbon copy of D2? There is such a thing as progress in game creation, and I know it may be hard for some to swallow, but turning out the exact same game all the time does nothing to further a particular genre.

This is what Diablo 3 looked like in 2005. I would take Diablo 3 over that any day :D

DS3 doesn't play like a Diablo game from what I've seen in the trailers. So I vote a no on that. Diablo 2 had some flaws, old Battle.Net was crappy, a lot of exploits, no re-specing talents or stats, grievers in PvP, and probably some other stuff I can't think off the top of my head.

I do find it hilarious that sack_patrol wants a carbon-copy D2 with new graphics but biotches CONSTANTLY about newer FPS/RTS/anything games being the same as older ones with nothing new. :lol:

If the guy made sense we wouldn't have anyone to laugh at for being silly about games... besides me I mean, and andrew with his constant dying in Alien Swarm.
