Darn you evil! What a scamp!
Oh boy I have spoilers I want to ruin the game for everyone so bad right now....
Okay yeah the angel guy is OMG ACTUALLY EVIL!!!!!!
I know, right? You could see that coming from, like, a mile fucking away. Oh and that old dude dies.
There's also gameplay footage floating around out there too. Looks cool, but the style of the creatures and the characters seems influenced from the design of WoW a lot.
Is it going to be the same, exciting "Let's do nothing but left click on monsters for hundreds of hours" game design?
Yep, the Roguelike dungeon crawling design that millions of people have been digging on since the birth of Rogue back in the 70s. Yes, the same.
The spy alone makes TF2 way more than nothing but shooting people.
Diablo is fucking terrible. Comparing it to Nethack and other roguelikes (which it is almost nothing like) just makes it look worse.
SPOILERS: Left-clicking will be an integral part of gameplay

Oh kewl. So it's Lord of the Rings meets the Final Fantasy movie, apparently.
This looked and sounded an awful lot more like a trailer for Black and White 3.
I'm bored to tears by Diablo, but goddamn I can't help but wonder how this is going to turn out.

The gameplay trailer on Blizzard's site gave me a raging hard on, especially the last three or four minutes. "Oh. Hi, little barbarian, I'm a boss. I think I'll pick you up, bite off the upper part of your body and spray your blood on your friends."
Close your eyes and listen to the vocal work. It's the warbling of some middle-aged, light-flowing robe-wearing, new ager that has given herself the name Moonriver because an uncle's uncle was in a tribe while she still hides the fact that she smokes and is secretly afraid of black people from everyone. This is her crowning achievement and it's contrived and forced and all good things die in its presence because it sucks with the soulless darkness that lives in the black holes of a murdered child pageant model's eyes.
Otherwise I liked it.
Wait, they're making another Dune miniseries?

I can't really bring myself to complain about something being all flash and no substance. That being said, I really hated the first Diablo.
This looks nice, though.
I agree. Trailers are so fucking cliched it makes me sick. This could be a trailer for anything. Just a bunch of bullshit someone wrote that they thought would sound SO EPIC, but instead sounds like every fucking trailer I've ever seen for movie or game. No gameplay footage, nothing of substance. Also, I didn't like Diablo 1 or 2. The gameplay is basically WoW without the strategy, and I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible. Fucking jackoff click-fest.
There is actually a 20-minute long video of gameplay on Blizzard's site if you bother to look for it.
As a huge Diablo 2 fan, let me say the gameplay trailer is practically boner inducing.
I played through diablo 1 and 2 with a friend on a LAN just for the story.
It was not worth our time.
You played through for the STORY? No wonder it wasn't worth your time.
It's a Blizzard product.
I'll buy it.
