Jan 17, 2007You do realize that battle.net gameplay in Diablo II is basically an MMORPG system. It's just broken up into "rooms" where up to 9 players can participate. There could easily be a similar system implemented on this Diablo III. Also, a single player version could be included easily for people without good internet access.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Jan 16, 2007This is completely conjecture, but I like this storyline (no doubt it could use some reworking, but I think it's an ok base to work on)...Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Diablo III - Rebirth of Evil
What if it were revealed that Azmodan was the creator of the Three Brothers, a metaphorical "father of evil". His creations were more powerful than he had expected and to save himself and Hell he teamed up with Belial to stop the brothers and banish them into the mortal realm. He knew they would be vanquished there and their powers diminshed...
Years later... The hero who defeated the Prime Evils has long since passed away, and Tyreal has been punished by the Heavens for disobeying Angelic Law. He has been made a mortal. He keeps up his holy deeds, but without the aid of the Angels they are frivolous. The mortal realm has fallen into dissaray and chaos.
And now, with the destruction of the WorldStone, Azmodan wants to take his turn at defeating Heaven and the Mortal realm. He sends forth new legions, more grotesque and powerful than ever to attack Heaven's gate and the world of men.
Tyreal finds himself in a conflict between protecting Heaven or the mortal realm, which is his new domain. Without any great heros, angels, or Horadric sages to help Tyreal he makes the descision to return to Heaven.
He returns to the gates and is allowed entry, due to circumstance his actions are temporarily forgotten. Here the spirits of Izual, Deckard Cain, and the mysterious Hero who once vanquished the three brothers consult with Tyreal. He is told of the impending doom and the return of Azmodan, the new lord of Hell. Tyreal will lead the armies of Heaven and the Ancient Hero will lead the people of the Mortal Realm.
The game is played as an MMORPG (similar to the originals in style, but like WoW in the sense of scale and greater interaction). There are several options to choose from...
1) Become a warrior of Heaven
2) Become a warrior of the Mortal Realm
3) Become a warrior of Hell
Whatever side you choose, you create a fully customizable hero character for yourself. You pick from different classes or castes and from there develop your character in looks. You choose your colours (which will be represented on your armor and weaponry), and can even upload a personal logo onto your character (which can be removed or changed at any time).
The new game would support clans and guilds aswell as free play. The War of Three would occur on a semi-ethereal plane of existance. Both elements of Heaven and of Hell conglomerate with the Mortal realm and it can be difficult at times to discern whether Hell is winning or Heaven.
The idea of gameplay is similar to the first. You progress through various levels and skills, and become a more powerful and wealthy player as you continue on. However, the benefeits of levelling would be more than just some stat reconfiguration and a skill point. Advancement through the game would be like advancement through a military. Ranks and power would be rewarded aswell. (Ei: Control over a small batallion of soldiers. They of course would be NPC characters that you could customize yourself to some extent). These would replace the usual NPC hirelings and mercenaries.
This game is open to additions and expansions galore. Fourth and fifth party characters for example, or new locations to fight, etc. I think it would be an awesome experience in gaming. How about you?
Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
Jan 15, 2007Posted in: Fan ArtQuote from "PhrozenDragon" »Precisely. Only one point of criticism: It's rated "M". Bring me more cuddly bears!
Yeah, I wasn't sure what ESRB to give it. I figured M would be appropriate based on some of the content I'd envisioned in it. Also, these days overly concerned parents have a tendency to force tighter restrictions on gaming companies. Perhaps it should have been T... Oh well.:cool:
Jan 13, 2007For computers it was an old MS DOS game called Moria - don't know if anybody knows it. The character was a little @ symbol who fought various monsters represented by numbers. Kind of like D&D for early Windows.Posted in: Other Games
After that It was a 2D game called Captain Comic - also pretty old. Love those games.
Dec 23, 2006Either this will be one of the most anticipated game releases in all history or the greatest disspointment in history when we find out D3 doesn't exist.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I think we can all agree that the first option is the one we're expecting.

May 16, 2007Posted in: NewsQuote from "xXTyraelXx" »just for fun, how many of you are buying hellgate london?
I don't plan on buying it. Partly because it doesn't look my kinda game, and also because I don't even know if my comp. could handle it. One thing I will say for it though, is that it has AMAZING cinematics.
(That's really the only reason I'm interested in it). Cinematics are a huge part of the game to me, and without them, I find it impossible to be impressed by a game. Hellgate looks cool, but I'm just not into shooters.
If Blizzard can keep up with their cinematics, I will be a happy man.
May 16, 2007Posted in: NewsQuote from "Blazur" »Meh, Cain is really the only character that exists in both games (and isn't corrupted). He also plays an important role and is probably the most memorable.
It's been said that D3 will have the battle brought to the gates of heaven. I've always thought it would be cool if Cain's true identity is revealed as being an angel or seraphim in disguise. He seems to fit the profile...
Lol. Cain = God. Now that would be a twist!
May 16, 2007Posted in: NewsQuote from "goodguy8705" »They used Cain twice because there were two diablo games. Starcraft had 1 so they can't use two quotes. There are no secret clues.
But why use Cain twice? They could have used ANY other Diablo character's words, but they used Cain both times. I'm not trying to theorize about any hidden messages, but if they WERE announcing D3, it would be conventient to set it up so that all the Diablo games would have quotes from the same person.
