    But the amount of cheering for it is very very limited; expected more enthusiasm.

    And the game play shown was not making me go wow to be honest; looks like Diablo 3...

    More Diablo 3 would be much welcome in my house.

    Sorry but I expect more for a $60 game; if they only want to release an expansion I expect it priced accordingly.

    Think people are sick of Blizzard offering up these amazing trailers then the gameplay is a damp rag of microtransactions and s!ite initial gameplay.

    Also, the company is a festering cesspool right now.

    I get what your saying. They didnt show enough for us to be proclaiming its worth.

    All the top D3 content creators and streamers are very happy about it, that's good enough for me as I've followed these guys for years.
    I cannot wait.

    Pretty much every ARPG look similar to be fair, its the gameplay mechanics,abilitities,skill tree,builds,loot and endgame content that matter more than anything else in an ARPG.


    This video is pretty much the feelings across the board from the Diablo community.

    Can’t wait for it!

    Looooot


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    Thankfully they have made the game look dark and grittier again like Diablo 2 from what game play I have seen, Diablo 3's palette was much to bright at times.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,893 ✭✭✭Canis Lupus


    Animations look slick although the action seems a bit stilted and not as free flowing as 3.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,710 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Plenty of info here , it is going to be so much different than diablo 3.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,932 ✭✭✭YouSavedMyLife


    Hope its closer to D2 than D3. When you get to the point in D3 where you can teleport through the whole map at light speed nuking the whole screen as you go was when the game became boring to me

    Up the diffficulty and that is impossible.

    The cinematic trailer was superb but I am still on the fence with this one. It is very Diablo 3.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,710 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Its actually nothing like D3.

    Looks great but the game is years away. They'll be milking this for the next 3 blizzcons


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,710 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    2021 id say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,537 ✭✭✭✭Varik


    Just going by the demo, even if it is a limited vertical slice. I'd say late 2020. What with Activision's recent performance I say there's more need of the Blizzard side of things picking up the slack.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,583 ✭✭✭✭2smiggy


    anyone play the beta , and any thoughts on it ?



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 80,381 Mod ✭✭✭✭Sephiroth_dude

    I preordered a while back just for the beta, couldn't get in to actually play it on the first day due to hours long queues (2 hours in queue then an error and ctd), second day i bluescreened when I did get in after about 5 minutes, then couldn't get back in, so I refunded it out of anger.

    I will try the open beta before i make a decision on buying it again, but realistically.. i probably will out of boredom. Not like i give a flying fcuk about the preorder stuff anyway.
