Yeah, running into the Butcher and hearing "Ahhh! Fresh Meat!" and getting chased was probably the only time I really jumped playing the first Diablo.

Diablo II didn't really have anything that I jumped at, the settings was so much more action-oriented, even if they tried to recreate the Butcher with the Smith and Hephasto the Armourer in D2.


I hope the PvP in D3 is going to be good. They so killed D2's PvP with LoD.

Enigma was the worst thing ever for D2 PvP. I hope they never make any armor like that again.

lol I still remember the hidden video of the butcher hacking at something. I admit, that was creepy. And yes, in D1 he was the only thing that made me jump lol.

Diablo 1 was kinda scary the brief time I played it... about ten or nine years ago. Nowdays, games just don't scare me. They can surprise me, but not scare me. Neither Doom 3 nor FEAR scared me. So people who want to be scared by D3 but don't may just have reached that age where it's hard to get scared with games anymore.

The Internet Hates Diablo III.
http://www.somethingawful.com/d/news...e-internet.php

Quite a funny read if you've got a couple of minutes to spare that sums up a lot of the flak that DIII has been receiving

Really, for a game that's still a WIP, I think many people will eat their keyboards when it's done. (Let's not even think about the patches.)

It's sad that so many people judge Diablo III at this stage we have only been introduced to two characters and some game play and the map. Most of my gamer friends say its going to suck it was good the way it was and we've seen nothing at all I personally think the game is going to kick royal ass lol. Graphics are crazy seems like 3 classes merged into one for the troll looking dude, kinda weird and looks really over powered but still a kool class. And like Yezhanguan said tons of people will be at their keyboards even if they say it sucks. Fans of blizzard are fans of Blizzard ya know

I know this isn't exactly Diablo 3 related as much as its of the first game, but I was wondering, how come Tristram looked more like a town than the huge city it was supposed to be? At least I thought I read somewhere that Tristram had its own king and all, so where the castle?

I do believe that Tristram was a big town it just got invaded and they moved out and set out a camp if im not mistaking. I think were told that in the begining of the game how they where attacked and stuff. But yea most places where destroyed and just made little camps

Hmm, I remember some guy in the village telling you that in the beginning of the game. But if thats the case, where does the king live? In the church?

It's no secret, the internet is full of idiots, trolls and spammers.
Hate?! that's just another form of love...

I was referring to before he was dead. It seemed to me at the very beginning of the game he might of still been alive unless I am mistaken.

Well, I'm a bit skeptical about it because Blizzard is a big company and they want to reach as many customers as possible. This means that they want Diablo 3 to be playable by kids, adults, and their grannies.

The wallpapers don't really say the opposite either. Reminds me of what Nintendo did to Metroid: gone is the dark and gritty atmosphere, replaced by shiny butts and pretty graphics. Unless someone here really believes that they will stamp it with "M" or 17+? Pff, the new WoW expansion is for 12+. We might be playing the same games as 12-year old kids.

Sure, the game can be great and I'm looking forward to testing it, but history repeats...

I once read from somewhere that once you reach the achievement of your life, everything after it will be only a shadow of the original. A nice copy/expansion, but not the real deal.

If you're going to bring up wallpapers, you should pull out D3's wallpapers, not D2 ones done by that one artist:


http://www.blizzard.com/diablo3/media/

They look pretty gloomy to me.


EDIT: The achievement of your life thing makes no sense. It's the one thing that's your most crowning glory, but no one will truly know which event that was until your life is finished, and even then it's a lot up to individual interpretation.

King Leoric dies a little bit before the hero arrives in town. He was killed by his own knight after he becomes insane because of the archbishop (controlled by Diablo), and orders people in his castle and in town killed for petty reasons.

At the point where the hero arrives, Tristam is no longer the great town/city that it used to be before Diablo took control of the archbishop.

The king used to live in the castle I believe, but you never see the castle. Everything takes place in the cathedral and underneath it.

You do fight the undead King Leoric as one of the bosses in the catacombs.

In Diablo II, Tristam is destroyed and only Deckard Cain survives because the hero saves him in one of the quests. That quest takes you to a burning and demon filled Tristam.

Yep, that's pretty darn accurate of how the state official Diablo 3 forums is right now.

I could really care less about the graphics as long as the great Diablo style game play is there and improved.

Eh... you should take a look at the state of WoW forums. You can sometimes find real jewels from there, but it's covered under so much ilk that you would need to ban majority of the trolls outright to be able to read anything worth half a thought. It all basically boils down to spamming, insulting, and undermining all reason just for the petty pleasure of it.

I guess that is the price of popularity...
