The butcher was always fun. Nothing like that room of his in Diablo, one of the best parts in the game.
I remeber killing him in Diablo II as well, probably one of the more memorable moments.

Using his weapon later after killing him I thought was so frikin' cool at the time.

That gameplay video is such a tease, it looks so complete but I'm sure the final product is years away

Anyway, Diablo 3 looks great...but I'm not gonna get hyped up over a game that won't be out for at least another year. On the other hand, I'm so freaking glad that the commotion over the splash screen is done and over with.
On the server Chromaggus On my server there was this guy Rogon who is quite well known for his swearing and calling his guild members names when sh.t hits the fan during raids. That is also where the whelps east side/west side is from during a Onxyia raid.

Somewhat OT, i actually dig up the old links. Watch/listen at your own risk, a lot of foul language and swearing.

Don't bother. It was about one and a half year ago that i last played D2. I remember the servers being in a terrible state. I couldn't even teleport with my enigma hammerdin without getting a disconnect message. I doubt blizzard has fixed up the servers and made it playable. Also hate how characters expire if you don't log on for to long. Was a real pain to refresh 20 mules or so ~~

The mystery creature looked like a penguin, so I expect we'll see a penguin level.

When this game hits the shelves, productivity all over the world will see a sudden drop. Again.

If this game hits next spring, it will coincide with what's basically 24/7 vacation time for me, which is just perfect.

This looks awsome ..i always liked D1 & D2 and im glad a 3 is finaly on its way ...
But i just wish they kept it under wraps till it was closer to completion ..now we all suffer for a year or 2 before its release lol ..owell ..atleas its comming ..cant wait to play it on me 36" LCD

Oh btw i also installed me old D2 and LOD but almost cried when it said it wouldnt run with Vista ..luckily the 1.12 patch sorts this ..kinda ..need to make sure you set the game to run in windows 95 compatibility mode or it jerks all over the place.

Well it did for me using Vista ultimate on a Dell XPS 720 2HC .. so just a warning there for any1 trying to install on Vista.

I never played the first Diablo game but I was a big fan of D2. I wonder what kind of graphics engine it is using because it looks similar to either Warcraft 3 or Starcraft 2.

I'm just hoping they bring back the atmosphere from the original Diablo. The second one was just sorely lacking in the creepiness department and not once did I really feel like I was being threatened. It devolved into a monster killfest unlike the first which actually filled you with fear. Nothing like walking into the catacombs and coming across 10+ acid-spitting dogs, or the caves with those horned demons that charged you, or the stormlords further on down. And the Butcher, who has been mentioned plenty of times. Nothing like his "AHHH FRESH MEAT!!!" cry to send a chill down your spine.

I really did like seeing that demonic creature popping out of that building though in the gameplay video though and it does build hope that we'll see a return to the atmosphere.

Which petition shall you sign?

To change

Or

Not to change?

Some images to maybe help you decide:

While i must say the altered images do imo capture that dark and gothic feel of the first two games a lot better than the original images, you do have to remember that Diablo III is after all set 2 decades into the future. The world is a much livelier and nicer place as opposed to before... that was of course until the comet hit New Tristram. It would be nice if the art were to slowly shift and become darker as we progress through the game though.

Well I'd like to be able to see what I'm doing, and I don't want to kill my computer with graphics that rock too hard.

I agree the dark gritty altered pics look better and more fitting for a Diablo game but that would mean they have to go back and change all the color schemes again and probably push the release date back another year or something. That I don't want, heh.

Just me but I prefer the look of the new game. I mean I killed 3 of the Prime Evils and 2 of the lesser evils, the world better look like a nicer place then it was before.

I agree with Xacual, and who knows maybe as we go deeper into the game the game will be more colourless? (I doubt it but it would be a cool effect) Still if you hate it that much you can always lower the contrast and brightness of your monitor.

It's only 2 small zones shown so far and people are already complaining about it.

I'll take the devs word that D1 and D2 were a lot more colorful than people like to remember.

In all honestly it's not a question of textures it's just a question lighting. People don't seem to like the current lighting and shading which is in all honesty just a petty personal preferance. I don't agree with the comments that the game isn't "realistic enough"; if your preferance is realism go to the damned scemetary and hit on dead people for all I care, if your so in love with realism of death. Diablo isn't exactly placed on earth so I don't see reasons to complain.

However I'll give credit to the changes suggested as being well placed. Blizzard has long been obsessed with those damn siko green and blue colours; and they're not sick as in scary sick they're just annoying, just like their over use of brightness now and then. But what ever, I'm not really going to bother with any of those petitions... as far as I'm concern it's in everyone best intrest both versions have a place; not everyone plays the game to get scared and it gets annoying after a while not being able to see in front of you, but the other side, who wants it to be a kiddy game anyway.
