But to have it play like ass on high end machines is a head scratcher.
Starcraft 2

That is one thing that confuses me as well, core i7 920@3.7 and a gtx 480@970MHz and still when the map gets filled up a little there is slowdown (45 fps down from over 100fps). 2 cpu cores are 70-90% and gpu is at 50%. No AA since the game doesn't support it which is also crazy, so not sure how they do their optimizations but there is no excuse for a dx9 title to run as hard as SC2.

Well if they do bring it out in 2011 I would be one happy mofo. Just seems like a kick ass co-op game that at ton of my friends would play too.

Don't you mean to say that Blizzard is addicted to making their games playabl by everyone as they always have? They are still the most successful on the pc platform.. Why? Because their games run on most systems and are playable by all age groups for both casual/new gamers, you should be thanking them for contributing so much to the PC gaming community. The day blizzard sells out and starts making console ports would be the NWO for gaming :laugh:.. And to be quite honest WoW seems closer to vanilla than ever? CC is back, heroic dungeons take more than half an hour to clear and mobs hit hard enough to make the healer and tank shit their pants. I am quite tired of seeing comments about how dumbed down WoW is... Vanilla days are over, they have a much bigger audience to cater for now, move on and don't be mad that new kids came to share our bad ass jumping castle. And to stay on topic I am assuming thy will reveal a paladin class maybe closer to the release of D3?
Blizzard have already sold out....SC2 is utter proof of that. poor story line. poor character development. poor pacing. not to mention it runs like a slug on a powerful pc even with a moderate army size in MP...where the heck was the optimisation???? now they want diablo 3 to become the new WoW...everything in diablo 3 is less dark, less gritty, and centred around making money for blizzard (i.e the new market system). There was a time i respected Blizzard for being developers who cared more about their fans and the gaming community but now all they seem to care about is how to make a quick buck.

Yeah. I used to think it was the color, art style. But it isn't. I put my finger on it the other day, and it is the icon art.

Here me out please. Look at the armor in D3 and D2.
Armor in D2 was kinda historically accurate. The goldskin armor was based off of this armor (attached). It is Henry the VII personal suit. Look at the Diablo 2 armor in any online item list. It looks real, like it came from medieval times in real human history. The weapons are great too.
http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Unique_Body_Armor_(Diablo_II)

Now, take a look at the icon of armor we see in the screenshots from D3. It looks childish. So do the weapons. They are retarded. The WoW design team has changed all that, so there is more stuff that looks childish along with skills/spells that are too showy, and don't necessarily help make the fighting more dynamic or interesting. It's just eye-candy. The spells are moving away from the most martially effective stuff, like raw elemental damage, into stuff that makes a special effect so the WoW players go "oooh! shiny!".
http://diabloiiikore.webs.com/character%20screen.jpg

So, the swords are all going to be fake fantasy swords that weigh 200 pounds, with fire and spikes and other silly shit that is not right. The armor is going to glow, and have spikes that make wearing a helmet or swinging a sword impossible. The characters are going to look like little cartoon people right out of some anime design studio. And all the kids are going to love it, and buy a supa-dupa special-ultra edition with complementary cast powder-metal Tyrael figurine. Limeted time only, act now! Only $169.99 for the box set!

The design team that did WoW must have made children's games before Blizzard hired them. I desperately hope there is a Diablo 4 in 2025, and they hand the design back over to Blizzard North. Because this shit sucks big-time.

My favorite moment in D2 was when I could get the two handed sword from Charsi in the first act, because it looked like a german longsword.

What I WANT from diablo, is real swordfighting moves from Kunst Des Fechtens or Fiore. Barbarians have some silly jump attack. Why not change it to a real move that does the same thing, like Ledall's Spring? Or a Zornhau from zufechten range? I want oberhau, unterhau, sottani, Krumphau, Zwerchau, Schielhau, Scheitelhau, Mittelhau disarms, throws, locks, and other blossfechten techniques.
Real guards like Vom Tag, Ochs, Pflug, Alber, Posta di Donna, Breve, Bicorno, Cianghare, Schlussel, Langort, Schrankhut, Coda Lunga, Testa and Porta di Ferro. Brutal, fast, efficient, effective, realistic stuff.:rockout:

No more 1-click 1-swing from the shoulder that may/may not hit based on a outdated defense/attack rating algorithm that fails to account for weak spots in armor and the appropriate skills to hit them with :shadedshu: It isn't 1974 anymore.

The melee combat/fake swordplay shit is boring me to tears.:banghead:

shrug, the armor looks almost identical too diablo 2 armor. if anything it looks better. the only armor from d2 that looks "realistic" is the full plate, and I havent seen a picture of that from D3. Not sure how you can be disappointed.

Well D2 was not as good as D1 when talking about the feel of the gaame as D1 was more creepy\spooky and dark and then there was stuff like hanging bodys that looked more real and bloody.

So to me i would not be the slightest surprised if it was more cartoony. TBH i think it be marked for people over 16\18 but it will not because of things that were in D1.

Same happened to Quake as after the 1st one the rest pretty much sucked and lost depth.

Quite sad actually, item farming FTW. They somehow manage to implement the most dreaded "features" in gaming history. It almost like they trolled the entire gaming community. I understand no mods for online gameplay, when you pvp and stuff. But there should be offline gameplay and mod support while offline. And 2 separate characters. Or no mods and normal offline mode.
The micro transactions is great from the businees approach, i bet it will generate a lot of revenue by harvesting their game supporters (alcolytes) souls (money)

I think the idea is fine, simply because it will ruin farming companys.
How so? I feel like they will thrive. Able to farm huge numbers of items and sell them at lower prices then the average player thinks their worth.

I see auctions turning into a joke within the first 6 months of the game..

That is a very interesting point. Does Blizzard actively police the auction house in it's other games? That might give some insight into how they intend to manage price manipulation (also supply/demand).

Price-fixing is illegal IRL, so this might allow Blizzard to prosecute the farmers in a way we had never dreamed of. The regulation of this auction house might be very nice, we could find it extremely enjoyable.:pimp:
