    Not just a disappointment, it would be stupid due to the fact of a hell load of people having LCD's. I doubt for even a second it be res limited. I would of thought it would go 1600x1200 at least.

    I wouldn't go that far because there a LOT of monitors that are incapable of that resolution, but i would expect that resolution to be available and, hopefully, an even higher one as well.

    It would seem illogical for them to not include 4:3 and widescreen resolutions all the way up to 2560x1600.
    But, you never know.

    blizzard is smart. just by looking at the graphics you know that the game will play very well on all systems from slow and old to fast and new. the graphics are nice and simple IMO and that really stays with the tradition of the diablo series and really all blizzard games. blizzard spends more time on actual gameplay and improving the overall story and environment than on graphics and cheap thrills. more companies should take this approach.
     
    DonInKansas, Jizzler and HTC say thanks.

    I'm so pumped up! Did anyone else here know out about the leaked soundtrack back in 2005/6? Someone from the orchestra submitted a pic of one page of sheet music for the theme. Since then I've always had hope.

    Ravenas, single word and smiley only posts are against forum rules.
    Please try to refrain from posting in that manner.

    On topic : I am looking forward to D3. I have the feeling it's going to be spectacular.

    I think that smiley face did everything I needed to say. Mainly because I've already created a thread on this, and this is more of a repost :p

    Your post actually went more off topic than mine.
