It's okay, we all shat bricks.


Diablo, Lord of Terror

^ A little rumor about this picture. If you've ever read the novel, "Divine Comedy" or Dante's Inferno, this portrait of Diablo is resemblance to what is believe to be Satan from the novel. In the 9th level of Hell, three men who are forever chewed/tortured upon Satan for their religious/political treasons: Brutus, Cassius (Betrayers of Julius Caesar), and Judas Iscariot (Betrayer of Jesus).

Diablo III is an action role-playing game currently in development and the third installment of Blizzard's Diablo franchise. It was unveiled on June 28, 2008 at the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational in Paris, France.

Development
The Development started started late 2000, but it took three failed attempts before they finally started the Diablo 3 we have now seen. The original team have left to make Flagship Studios, Arena Net, and Castaway Entertainment. By late 2005, a new team, "Team 3," had been working on Diablo 3 with a total of 50 members currently.

Plot
- The game takes place on Sanctuary, a world of dark fantasy. Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced Hell’s armies -- and were fortunate enough to survive -- went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again.

- Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both Heaven and Hell, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.

Gameplay
Diablo III is an action roleplaying game in a similar style to its predecessor, Diablo II. While retaining many of the gameplay elements of the original, Diablo III will have a focus on cooperative or team based play. The proprietary engine will incorporate Havok physics and feature destructible environments with an in-game damage effect. In short, it's your hack and slash game that we hope to be non-repetitive.

Classes
Two out of five classes have been revealed so far: Barbarian and Witch Doctor. You can also choose either male female for all classes.

Barbarian - Barbarian can use ground stomp attack to get enemies (npcs, don't know about actual players) to drop their shields. Barbarian can hop across gaps on the map. Barbarian dislodged a rock wall and dropped it on zombies, killing them. Demoing moving whirlwind attack. Barbarians like in Diablo 2 are masters of weapons and armor. They can equip any melee weapon and all plate gear possible. It has been said that this Barbarian is the same from Diablo 2, but has some amnesia shit or something.

Witch Doctor - Can cast out locus swarm, which spreads between targets and deals damage. Can summon mongrel things that he can cast locust swarm on, which buffs their damage. Witch doctor also has a mass fear type of ability. Witch doctor using a fire bomb spell. Can summon a wall of zombies that stays stationary, but the zombies in the wall flail their arms and do damage to their oponents.

Wizard - Known for their variety of magical spells, many remain intact: Fire, Lightning, Arcane, and Teleportation. One new feature is they can slow time within a small area at a time. When an offensive spell or object comes within the sphere, it will slow down so the Wizard can get away from danger.

The Three Prime Evils
From oldest to youngest brother, these were the Prime Evils that wanted to enslave the Mortal Realm to unite with Hell and destroy Heaven: Mephisto, Baal, and Diablo.

Mephisto, Lord of Hatred - He is the most intensely evil brother, whose greatest weapon is his victim's irrational hatred.

Baal, Lord of Destruction - Said to strive for destruction and disorder and is often associated with animals, particularly those bred as soldiers or serving some purpose on the battlefield. His duty is to bring Hell upon the Mortal Realm and cause nothing, but destruction.

Diablo, Lord of Terror - Responsible for the seeding of humanity with violent images of bloodlust and terror, his primary weapon being the victim's fear.

The Four Lesser Evils
While the Prime Evils controlled Hell as a sovereign triumvirate, the Lesser Evils were powerful in their own right, serving as Lieutenants to the Prime evils, but often jealous of them. We don't know if any would make an appearance, but there were two left that did not show up in Diablo 2: Azmodan, Lord of Sins and Baliel, Lord of Lies.

Movie
It was announced from Legendary Pictures about 2-3 months ago that they were working with Blizzard on two games into a movie, "World of Warcraft," and "Diablo". I'm a little worried on both films because most movies that are based off games end to suck major balls by either being too loose from it's original source or being too narrow that it bores old fans that have already seen it all and hoped something unique. Although, films like "Street Fighter 2 The Movie" and, "Resident Evil: Degeneration (upcoming)" tend to be better than those solely off shit directors who didn't play the games thoroughly like others. Seeing how Legendary did good work on 300, 10,000 B.C, and The Dark Knight. Also, the fact that Blizzard seriously knows how to make jaw-dropping cinematic videos, I don't see how it could possibly be a terrible film when it comes to visual effects. If you disagree, go to an eye doctor because you must've been blind by it's awesomeness.

Release Date
Once Starcraft II is released, I'll give it another 2-3 years.

Fanbase Website (one of my few sources) - http://www.diablofans.com/
High Quality Trailer of Diablo 3 - http://rapidshare.com/files/125598392/Diablo_III_Cinematic_Teaser.avi

If you want to see trailer, I advise you to not use jewtube because it's a piece of shit used by 13 year olds who can't google hard enough.

Random Info
- When you kill a monster, their bodies will vanish so it won't cause your game/servers to crash due so much happening on the screen (not enough memory being uploaded and dumped). Sucks because I enjoy seeing hundreds of fallens all over the map.
- Tired of nostalgicfags complaining about the lighting on the gameplay video for Diablo 3 (hope they realize you can change the lighting to your own liking since Diablo 1, fags).
- For some particular reason, fans were questioning if this was going to be an MMO. Stated several times, it will be done as the previous titles as a player will host a server with up to 12 players to quest together.
- A trilogy novel with the previous books written by Robert B. Marks was released a month or two ago; should check it out for you book geeks out there.

I heard a rumour about "World of Sanctuary" (rumour from college *shrugs*)

Aka. Diablo series turned into something like World of Warcraft.
- I'm not sure how that would turn out.

If they make Diablo similar to World of Warcraft then I truly believe Blizzard are now sell outs. Can't wait til tomorrow when they show the final splash... Or second last, but I'll post it again with more pictures of what people believe it is to be.

One thing I am curious is to why one of the runes is from a game they don't have anymore in their franchise (Pax Imperia).

For all you Diablo fanbois, what are your thoughts on this picture? Those who don't know Pax Imperia, was a game Blizzard originally worked in the early 90's and sold it to THQ.



Original you can check at the main blizzard.com website to compare.

While surfing the internet for anything interesting about Diablo 3, I saw this picture.



Lol'd hard. Though old news, Blizzard bought a domain of diablo3.com from a diablo fansite which pretty much gaurantees Diablo 3 in the making. If this all turns out to be a joke to Blizzard and those eyeballs end up to be the Lich King's from WoW, I'm pretty positive that there will be millions of people going to California to burn down their building.

Well one can hope the transition from Diablo II -> Diablo III won't completely ruin the game like Warcraft II -> Warcraft III did.

Now the eyes look very much of the Lich Kings, Blizzard got us good and I now I want to spend my 300 dollars to drive down to California and join the riot. Fuck you Blizzard, fuck you.

Also, the gameplay wasn't the only reason what made Diablo what it was; it was the damn plot and character models that made it look so epic compared to WoW's cartoon model.

Edit: Found this picture while surfing my usual spot and this is what they believe it to be and I actually find it plausible.



As you can see Lich King's Face, his eyebrow/helmet doesn't go as wide as that... Either that's smoke or the horns of Diablo, but this shit is intense.
