[QUOTE=Frozen;15196621] [img]http://img299.imageshack.us/img299/6065/howitshouldlooklikevx5.jpg[/img] They want it to look like this instead. Talk about it only in this thread![/QUOTE] That is much better than a WoW-ish cartoony style. And I'm not completely sure if I will buy this game, looks good, but not Very good.
I want the release date damnit [editline]11:39PM[/editline] And if anyone complains about the colors, you might want to OPEN YOUR EYES when you play D2.
Nice thread. This game will be uber sweet i'm pretty sure. They also released a new batch of media a couple days ago i think. I'm eager to get it. It looks so atmospheric too !

Can't wait for this
[QUOTE=waxrock;15196698]Looks shittier and too dark.[/QUOTE] Looks like Diablo. Not wow.
[QUOTE=edja007;15196730]Looks like Diablo. Not wow.[/QUOTE] It doesn't even look remotely close to wow. Not to mention it looks like fucking nighttime all the time. Even during daylight.
[QUOTE=edja007;15196730]Looks like Diablo. Not wow.[/QUOTE] Diablo not dark enough? [img]http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/9909/006jo8.jpg[/img] Problem solved.
The original images look like WoW, but I just want this for the game experience. I reckon things are gonna get darker when the REAL demons come.
[QUOTE=waxrock;15196754]It doesn't even look remotely close to wow. Not to mention it looks like fucking nighttime all the time. Even during daylight.[/QUOTE] Okay, good for you. Sadly I think new art style doesn't fit for Diablo. I am not going to buy it.
Can't fucking wait for this. I think the game looks fine, it's not like WoW is a bad game anyways. I fucking hated having the inventory be messy and cluttered, I welcome the changes to it. Also, the levels we've been shown probably just haven't been that affected by whatever evil is being unleashed onto the world all that badly yet. Plus, a darker atmosphere quite possibly translates differently into the realm of 3D. Anyone who says that they're not going to be buy the sequel to one of the best hack n' slash RPGs ever made is full of shit. Blizzard has yet to make a single bad game and I trust they won't start doing so now, especially considering how highly anticipated each of their sequels are.
5 years from now... I will preorder this game.
I think the inventory change was for the better.
I remember when Blizzard had the splash page with the breaking ice and everyone would post each new development. Good times.
[QUOTE=edja007;15196730]Looks like Diablo. Not wow.[/QUOTE] Hhahhahhhahhaaha... Diablo is WoW with the contrast turned up and the brightness turned down? k
[QUOTE=edja007;15196801]Okay, good for you. Sadly I think new art style doesn't fit for Diablo. I am not going to buy it.[/QUOTE] Cool brah. Thats one less complaining person to play with on coop.
I hope they bring the Paladin back. And if they don't surely the Pally will turn up in an expansion pack. Not sure how I feel about the inventory system, it's kind of fun having to decide what you should drop if you happen to find some loot you especially like. Then again, maybe it's for the best. I hope we have separate pouches for gems, runes, keys and the like.
The art style was already explained by one of the designers of D3. If they made it dark and gritty, there's no reason to show off the graphics. Everything would be dark, and it would feel repetitive because you'd feel like you're seeing the same exact thing. With this colorful style, there is contrast between each level and keeps it fresh.
You gave me a shock, I thought they had released more information.
I think they just need to add a saturation option to fix all the people complaining. [editline]06:10AM[/editline] Join the group guys
I want this game.

R.I.P My level 87 Paladin, you went mad from saving the world.
[QUOTE=edja007;15196801]Okay, good for you. Sadly I think new art style doesn't fit for Diablo. I am not going to buy it.[/QUOTE] that is the worst reason to not buy this game. i'm just going to come out and say it, you're stupid. [editline]07:28AM[/editline] FYI there's a reason these art directors are art directors, they know what they're doing. they will pull it off, a bunch of angsty teens shouldn't be telling them how to make the game, if they listened to them, this game would turn out horribly. They're the developers, not you. I have faith in them to pull off a great art style.
I play Diablo 2 like every day still There's spam bots all over the fucking place I'm hella looking forward to this however
If you don't like the colors, turn the saturation down. Problem solved. Also I love The Fallen. Rakanishu!

And I don't think the monsters drop red health orbs to speed up the gameplay but to prevent people from spamming healing potions. I think they said that somewhere. Some parts in D2 were way too easy if you just hammered gallons of healing potions.
Diablo 2 is my favorite game of all time, I could barely sit still when they announced the third. Anyways, the problem is [B]not the colour[/B], it's [B]the shapes[/B] that are exaggerated, Diablo 2 had lots of colours (poison nova anyone?), but it had "realistic" proportions and shapes. But the developers changed a lot after the complaints, just look at the small statues near the stairs, no more happy, smiling lions, now they are gargoyles (is that how it's spelled?). Even though they acted all tough and said nothing would change. [editline]07:49AM[/editline] Still the art style won't stop me from playing it of course, it's going to be a great game nonetheless. [editline]08:43AM[/editline] Also I don't want to ruin anyone's expectations, but: - Automatic stat (Strenght, Dexterity, Vitality, Mana) placement (:suicide:).

So I am stupid because I don't like art style? Okay...
