Cinematic and gameplay trailers. **** yes.

This is the most excited I've been about a Blizzard game since, well, Diablo 2.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
I suspect those 'Next-Gen MMO' job listings were actually a bit of clever misdirection. Diablo's gameplay is MMO-like in many ways - probably this is indeed the project they referred to.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
They still have at least one unannounced project in the works; if this is Project Hydra, then the other one must be an MMO.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Wasn't "Hydra" the code-name for the MMO?

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Looks pretty sweet....downloading the trailers right now.  The Cinematic trailer is what you'd expect from Blizzard which means its jaw droppingly gorgeous!

Awesome awesome awesome. I like the new Barbarian's charge skill! In fact, I'm going to re-install D2 now ... Maybe the mods could change the topic to Diablo 3 :D

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Is anyone else kinda disapointed?  I've watched both the theatrical and gameplay trailers, and while i'm sure the game will be awesome....it just seems to be more of the same.  even Starcraft 2 suffers from...well this is the same game we palyed eons ago, just prettier and a different plot line.  I was really hoping for a new title, something different but with that same level of Blizzard quality... instead it seems like they're out of original ideas and will forever be cranking out Warcraft (thanks to the new starcraft engine there's bound to be 4 right?), Starcraft and Diablo versions every so often.

I'm much more excited about Spore, Prototype, Dead Space, and Tom Clancys HAWX, and other new IPs then i am about rehashes of old titles...
(i know there where alot of console games on there, but my pc is lacking as of late and i can't play the newest of the new...)

Anyone else with me?

PS: this doesn't mean i won't buy Starcraft...i likely will....may even give diablo a chance, but was never into it the same way.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Diablo 3 is more exciting than Starcraft 2 because while there's been a ton of great RTSes since the first Starcraft, there's been nothing to replace Diablo 2. I mean, Titan Quest was cool, but all it really did was make me want a new Diablo game more. A lot of people have been waiting for this for a long time and Blizzard would be crazy to try bringing out a new IP at this point.

I'll admit I am hoping for a new Blizzard IP after this, though. But it's Blizzard - they've always been perfectionists more than creators.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Actually, Thor, I tend to play by it by ear. The post-D3 announcement euphoria has worn off, so yes, I do agree that the gameplay does look similar.

However, it appears a tad slower paced than D2 to me. And its only probably in pre-alpha, so there's still a long way to go, and I think, if I were Blizzard, I'd premier D3 with some similar gameplay stuff, to assure the fans that, "Hey, its a new game, but don't worry, it will be familiar to you guys." Then as time goes on, I'd preview newer stuff.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
that makes sense stormkeeper and ransom.  I'm still not enthused about it, but hopefully this will make the fans boys happy so the blizzard guys can get to something new  :P

No you're not the only one, thats what I've been saying in all "woot Blizzard" topics I see around here.

Although, they seem to dramatically change something in D3... the visual style at the moment is the same crappy cartoonish style of SC, W3 and WoW... being completely different (and for the worse IMO) then D1 and D2... but hey! its Blizzard: cartoons are da ****s!!! :P
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
I like the fact that you can drop a wall on your enemies though. And if the sorceress is still there, and they implement rag doll physics like in Titan's Quest ... Well. Let's just say that a lot of bodies are gonna fly around the place.
