It was revealed a couple days ago, it doesn't look very impressive to me.. For a title as anticipated and massive as Diablo 3, I was hoping for something a little more special. Well I guess I shouldn't be surprised... It's pretty much the EXACT same as Starcraft II collectors edition, and every other WoW expansion collectors edition.

If I still played WoW, I'd be incredibly excited about the mini shaman pet though.. :(

I think that's an interesting approach. Diablo is still male, but apparently chose a female vessel this time 'round. I guess this will take the boss fight from the brutish, slow style that we had in the last two games to a faster paced experience.

Let's wait and see :D.

the vessel is leah

^ you sure? I don't think so. I think it will be Adria, her mother (the witch from D1). Leah is "too hot", and too young. I don't think Blizz will Diablo-fy her.

azmodan is a name that appears in the bible as a demon

baal, baalzebub, azmodan, belial, satan, lucifer - are all demons names. idk where they got the name mephisto though


edit- why are you guys saying diablo is a girl? i didnt get that at all from the video. perhaps you are misinterpreting it, unless im missing a piece of the puzzle here.



and WOW, far cry from the dark dark dark days of old diablo =( i miss the evil sinister cinematics like this:

Did not know that Adria is that, damn. But I never cared for lore in Diablo that much anyway. How did she die? Any geek Diablo wiki links?

But imho making Leah the new vessel would be a dick move, considering she seems to quite close to the player character in the game. We will see... ;)

hes a lesser evil on the same level as andariel, duriel, and belial. we killed andariel and duriel in diablo 2 (acts 1 & 2) belial is yet to be revealed and will probably be in diablo 3 somewhere, could be an expansion

they overthrew the three prime evils and sent there spirits to the earth realm. azmodan and belial fought for leadership of hell.

imo diablo is leah. the way azmodan talks to her sounds strange.

That's bull****, and you know it.
- Diablo 2 was as colourful as it gets. Purple armor, green models, cow level, bright levels. I think most people fail to realize that the "gritty, dirty look" was caused by the 800*600 screen resolution :p.
- Simplified? There are literally hundreds of thousands of possible skill/rune combinations. In D2 you picked a build and dumped all your skill points into two or three base skills. Now that was simple. Same for stat points. Just enough strength to be able to wear your gear, if you have a shield dex until you achieve max block rate, and the rest into vitality. There were no real options if you were taking it somewhat "seriously".
- Catered to noobs? Dunno. Inferno is said to be pretty hard. We can't judge that yet.

How is the AH relevant in a 100% co op multiplayer game, where PvP does not have its own ladder, can't be forced on you, and PvP matchmaking is gear dependend anyway?
The only thing I can think of is online penis envy...

after more and more info is released on diablo I am less excited about it and believe the RL auction will eventually doom the game.

Its everything, with the edition of Inferno difficulty having bad set of gear is going to be near impossible to progress in. The fact you can now make MONEY in this game will have more and more people putting up the above average gear on the RL auction house and all the low/below average gear on the gold auction house. It just common sense to think that if you have an epic piece of gear you would not try to make some $$ off of it.

hankst
10-24-2011, 05:09 AM
What stops you from running through Hell one more time if your first play-through did not yield the gear you need to progress further (which I doubt)?

I'll never use the RL AH, it just does not concern me, I don't need it.

blizzard are just greedy pricks now, that's all it is. with WoW losing money due to subscription losses, they had to cash in on diablo 3 somehow.. I honestly don't think I'll enjoy this game nearly as much as d2lod. the fact that any unskilled phaggot can get the top items now is just a joke. thankfully there's so many more amazing games coming out without corrupt developers like guild wars 2, counter strike: go, skyrim, bf3, mass effect 3, etc..

I highly doubt that D3 will have steep system requirements, watch any of the thousand beta gameplay videos on youtube and you'll see that.

You may not use it to buy, but you sure as hell aint selling me the idea you will never use it to sell.

Why would I go through the hassle of selling **** for 1$ a piece (stuff will not be expensive I assume, as there is a lot of competition - but that remains to be seen) which is taxed by Blizzard twice when I could just give that stuff to my friends / my other chars? Dunno. I'm not that poor.

Edit:
not trying to offend or bash you guys, I can see where you're coming from, I had the same opinion when I first learned about these features, but then I took a step back, thought a bit about all that stuff, and now I'm pretty cool with it.. yeah, it sucks that Blizzard are trying to squeeze money out of every tiny aspect of the game, but that's their obligation as a company. They have to make the most possible profit, by definition.

This.

Everybody and their mother's sister's daughter's boyfriend thinks they will make tons of money on this when in fact things will probably be cheap as fuk. The Chinese gold farmers from WoW will just farm D3 because they don't have to deal with unsafe 3rd party transactions - instead they can just do everything using what Blizzard provides. Yes, Blizzard will take a certain % of each transaction but they are a fkn business and it's their prerogative to make a goddamn profit.

And this doesn't fkn affect you anyhow since D3 is a PvE game. Oh wow, the Barb next to you has a better sword? Cry me a fkn river.

I'm not understanding your logic.
Are you aware how many sites (e.g. D2JSP) are around which are selling super high level weapons for D2? And how long they have been around for? Blizzard have realized this and have made their "Auction House" to cater for this. Yes they are taking a cut back from this. But why not? If they didn't put this together, farmers would be having a field day once again selling stuff like they did for D2.
Any "unskilled phaggot" in D2 can buy uber loot, just the way it is and has been for some time now.

I personally created the website for a guy who sold thousands of duped Stone of Jordan rings and made a BOATLOAD of real money in the early days of D2LoD.

Blizzard saw that, and said, "Hey, we can't stop them. It just costs us money to try. So why not beat them at their own game?" (and they should have the duping stuff eliminated by now)

And if you guys think real money AH's aren't the wave of the future, I suggest you read REAMDE, Neal Stephenson's new novel... And then come back here and tell us what you think.
