WHAM, DIABLO III UP THE ISOMETRIC ASS!!!
July 3rd 2008, 04:20 CEST by m0nty

Just to keep it all in one place.

And by "it" I mean the slobbering fanboiism and the rare sane voice among the mob.

Do we actually need a thread for a game that won't be released this decade?

Witnesses in the house heard Jones say "why did you pee on me Pooh Bear?" A few moments later, the witness heard the son say "Mama you done stabbed me."

meh. Much like starcraft 2, I really can't be bothered to give a shit.

We'll see what happens when they release a demo.

Seriously fucking christ. DO THE GODDAMNED MATH!

Sabrina Poirier, a student at Pensacola who withdrew in 1997, was disciplined for what is known on the campus as "optical intercourse" — staring too intently into the eyes of a member of the opposite sex. This is also referred to as "making eye babies."

Are Blizzard capable of coming up with new ideas for games or do they just polish the same tired old mechanics more than any other developer?

Warcraft 3 was the same game as 2 was the same game as 1. Diablo III is the same as II is the same as I. Starcraft etc. etc. etc. you get my point.

WoW is not just a rehash of Diablo. WoW isn't unique by any means, as m0nty points out it's EQ but shinier, but it's not a goddamn rehash. It was one of the few brave attempts the company has made in years, in that context they get full credit.

At some point in the past, Blizzard actually did come up with the occasional idea.  Otherwise they wouldn't have Diablo to iterate on.  Who knows why they stopped with that.  Would it be so bad to make a game like Diablo that wasn't a total rehash?  I guess it would.

This little bit from their FAQ sounds interesting.

"Also, Diablo III builds on the random environments of the previous Diablo games by introducing a host of new ways to create random scripted events throughout the game. This creates a dense and exciting world alive with quests, NPCs, dynamic encounters, and viciously challenging new monsters and bosses."

I'm hopeful that means they've take a lessson from Sacred and well WoW and really jam the quests in there so you don't feel like 90% of the world exists just for level/loot grinding.

Or it used to be. Everything Blizzard puts out is great and all, but there's no getting around the fact that they're not in the habit of breaking out into new territory any more. In fact, the last two ventures that would have been new territory for them (genre wise, anyway) were Warcraft Adventures and Starcraft: Ghost. And both those got canceled.
