    Lies! Blizzard have said that a new game is to be announced at saturday, not an expansion and we already know about SC2. My cash is on D3!

    I'm hoping they make a new IP, i'm tired of all this Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo shit. They need to branch out and make something truly unique.
    All this fantasy/scifi junk is just redesigns of existing trends and franchises.

    it's Diablo III.

    There is nothing to announce for Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft II isn't even out yet, so they wouldn't even consider a Starcraft MMO, and they have confirmed that they are announcing a new game this weekend.

    The theme is likely Hell frozen over.

    Also, they've been hiring for a Next-Gen MMO for MONTHS now, what do you think that could be

    Ugh, I'm sick of all the "OMG UNIVERSE OF STARCRAFT" (And the like) wishes. Don't we have enough MMOs? Isn't WoW's stranglehold on the MMO market enough? If it's Diablo III, great. If it's Diablo MMO, someone shoot me, if it's a new IP, awesome, finally.

    Sorry, personally I just prefer to play a game and be done with it.

    yeah I've been watching into this.. If i had to make a guess i would say its probably something that included all their products, like putting them on game tap... or maybe steam? i dunno... really doesn't seem like a single game announcement to me.

    well....


    I'm hoping its diablo, a new IP or NOT AN MMO
    I still thin its WoW tho, not SC. There is a freaking Hammer in the Center/bottom of the pic. That was not made by accident. Hammers, as we know. are not Starcraft Material.

    Im actually surprised that this is a surprise to people

    especially given who sponsored the Dominance Wars and what its topic was

    since DWs essentially talent scouting.

    Alright! These are awesome news, I loved playing Diablo II back in the days, can't wait for the new one. I hope they'll make a new kickass female class, now with the new witch doctor for males.
    Any news on release yet?

    Yes! I can't wait to get my hands on this. How long do you guys think it'll be before we can play this?

    Knowing Blizzard, probably 2-4 years. But the game will be better for it. It always is.

    Wait really? All classes will have male and female variants? That's weird... Will there be no Rogue or Amazon classes? I thought those were "female only" classes.

    You can't have a male Amazon. It defies the definition of the word... doesn't it?

    Regardless, I'm excited. I like the graphics, from what I've seen. Although knowing blizzard nothing is permanent.

    Now I just have to wait for 5 years or so for it to be released.

    Might be the first game from Blizzard I don't want to play.

    Diablo 1 had a certain novelty factor. It was a bit hokey and that one song played over and over, but it was fun hacking tons of monsters apart and searching for new and better armor.

    Diablo 2 had great artwork, and was much longer.

    That's where the benefits of playing stopped. Both wore down to endless, thoughtless hack and slash fests, killing the same enemies a zillion times waiting for the one damn item to appear that's slightly better than the one you've already got. Just so you can kill Diablo slightly faster at the end. They're games where the playing isn't fun so much as the having and they take way too damn long. Also, money means nothing because the only decent items you'd want are never for sale. Add to that, most of the special abilities in the talent tree become obsolete at later levels.

    I saw the game play trailer for diablo 3 and didn't see any hint of enemies with actual AI, or differing strategies. To remain exciting a game like this really needs a controller, and strike/block moves similar to Street Fighter II. I still don't see why no one ever combined these designs into one game, although there was one Castlevania that came close. All this game seems to have are some neat little animations that'll eleviate the tedium for all of 10 minutes.

    Sorry if I've offended anyone, feel free to think differently.

    Yeah, but you can always spend it for gambling

    I don't know, I love Diablo2 and can't wait for 3 to come out. sure, it does get a bit repetitive after, like, five years or so of playing but it's like solitaire or pinball for RPers and fantasy lovers, something you can always play.

    As for no. 3, I doubt it'll be as good as 2 but I still can't wait. I like the fact that you can choose from both genders of characters yaaay!

    And it actually says on the site that Deckard Cain is the first victim!

    maybe there is a chance that he will stay dead, all this ancient horadric stuff gets annoying after a while...

    In the game play video on the D3 site he gets rescued in the begining. What is funny though is that he starts to talk and the barbarian is like "let's move" or something and then Deckard Cain says in a really whiny voice "nobody ever listens to me ", so true.
