    You guys are ****ING retarded. There were Necromancers and Paladins in and BEFORE Diablo II came out in Warcraft II.

    Guess what Warcraft Didn't moinopolize mythical ideas around magic, and Diablo being set in medival fantasy Horror overlaps quite a bit with Warcraft, before Diablo III came out. What the hell is anything with the witch doctor, there is more similarities with the necromancers in the two games (war/D2)than with the witchdoctors(war 3/ D3).

    People just like to sit around and bitch about **** that doesn't matter.

    Why do people care about presumptuous comparisons?

    It should definitely look like this. It needs sharper graphics and dark filthy environments.

    k heres my real stance with graphics besides my reposts of BLOOM AND BROWN

    Using the above and overly posted pic as reference i like theright dungeon a little more then the current. just like the little details that are shown more i think.

    Outside. Vegetation/terrain on the left i like the best. Right side looks like like **** really.

    no the new graphics are kinda gay.

    I'm out of this argument. I'm just gonna get pissed off and start flaming noobs worse than I already have.

    In all honesty, my own personal tastes I like darker stuff...but what chaps my ass is that there is NOTHING wrong with how things are. Jenny said it best: next-gen gamers are graphics-whores. If it doesn't look like the monsters are going to pop out of the screen, it's too cartoony.

    I kinda like the top comparison's "How it should look," because yes...honestly a dark and dank dungeon is nice for gameplay ambience...but with how it relates to overall D3 style, it IS dark and dank. Truth be told, the right sound backdrop would make it way better...perhaps no musical score at all, just the background noise of a dark sewer...dripping, rats chittering, the occasional unidentifiable shuffling sound.

    But as for the bottom one, that's just ridiculous. It's outside during the day...and for crying out loud it's only "bright" out for a short time! You get to the bridge and it starts raining!

    Honestly, I think people just like to bitch about things. Reason purely extraneous, let's just bitch.

    That's pretty funny. Even if it is fake and somewhat jaded.

    It's a screenshot from diablo 3 of a barb girl, with the interface and hud of WoW. Hard to tell the difference, ehh?

    I wouldn't know, I played a trial of WoW for maybe 10 minutes before deleting it off my computer and burning the disc. I didn't recognize the interface as being significant, even though it looks nothing like the one in the D3 trailer.

    The art direction I hate the most is that the chat gem will still not leave us alone. :(

    God I love you Wing. Even if you don't make that stuff yourself, you find it and bring it to me. If BF went down right now, you'd easily be the one I miss the most, regardless of who I'm better friends with or whatever.
