People... I've just watched a 20-minute gameplay video. Now that was some serious ass-kicking. SERIOUS.

It looks like Titan Quest because of the graphics, but it should have graphics like that, I mean, you can't have anything different in 2008 (2009).

The combat is fantastic, it has that dynamic hammer-swinging as before. It has a hotbar for skills, and from what I've seen no more potions (which is a minus). I always loved to open a portal just to get 20 potions in Tristram.

It has the same action sounds, like, for an example, when you activate a bookcase, it has that dungeon sound from Diablo I, and the same with a chest. The background sound could be better I think, that was the best part of Diablo I. Who knows, maybe they will change it.

So, the release date is not known right now, but it's probably best to wait, now that we know that the game IS coming out. Heck, I'll wait another 10 years, as long as the game is n the same level as the previous games, especially the first one.

I'll hook you up with news, as soon as anything becomes public.

PEACE

You should really try Diablo I & II... they fucking kick ass. Although keep in mind it's +10 years old, so the graphics and the mechanics are kinda primitive compared to today. But it's a flawless game nonetheless.

About the SCII release date, we don't know anything for now, I'm checking out Blizzard's news section every day, and I'll keep you posted.

Well the original is at least three times better than the 2nd imho.

But to each his own I think.

Looks a bit rough. Dunno if they're just early shots or what, but it doesn't look as good as a lot of new games these days. Still, looks aren't everything (I keep telling myself that).

What's Skampoe doing in that first picture Prim0?

Hack & Slash games aren't good with tremendous graphics. Hack & Slash games are meant to be raw and simple. I'd be happy as long as it has good creepy music. The graphics matter the least to me. I still play the Diablo I game which has terrible graphics according to newer standards.

U gotta trust Blizzard, they are a liability

Ritter

Blizzard are crazy. They are supposed to be releasing both SCII and D3 in December.

Ya wish. The gaming market would collapse. The monthly sales would be

1. Diablo III

2. Starcraft II

3. There's no #3 bitches, people only bought the above mentioned.

Sell your Breitling, and buy yourself a Space Station bro hahahaaaa

You could always check whether your computer could run a certain game on Can You Run It... They usually put a test for new games, after a demo is released, or system requirements info.

A very useful tool. Saved me a couple of hundred bucks.

I don't know shit about Macs, but they're not too good for games I think. However, the thing with lap tops is that you can't upgrade their performance as it grows obsolete for newer games and programs. That's why I only fuck with desktop computers.

I see you're from Canada, I don't know any websites that have a catalog of computer products. You could try buying a few computer magazines and reading about laptops or components there.

Yo Kid if you want some serious computer for games better check what Alienware offers ;) These computers are well know on the whole world but available only in US. You can also tell me how much money you got to spend on new PC and I can give you some advice :D

Witch Doctor !

one of the most powerful classes i have seen used, this and the Monk are intense.

i went with the classic Barbarian

how do y'all like the game?

how much of a step up from d2?

and not much of one lol

the game is fun and all but with these games its hard to advance imo

new attacks, new items, new story but its pretty much the same game. graphics arent even all that great lol

my only real beefs are that, there is no real "single play" and you can only have 4 in a party
