Dark and gothic isn't just about gore, it's about the visual design

I agree D4 seems to be going in a much better direction compared to D3, the character and environment design are so far better, but the attack and spell animations are still cartoony and over the top

Just seeing that Barb whip out a magical 20 foot whip that hits the entire screen in a 360 pattern is lame af, more anime stuff like D3's WOTB, Hammer of the Ancients, etc


I agree with that it's a fair take, the whip felt very God of War kratos esq, and like the ultimate for berserkers in Lost Ark. Seems like they are trying to borrow a lot of ideas from other games. I am no D4 shill, but I think everyone takes their hate and anger from D3 and automatically applys it to D4. Very hyperbolic conclusions are made.
Which I get it and I am skeptical and I have accepted it will have some trash elements from D3, but as long as the good out weighs the bad I'm fine with it. However, I do think the look of abilities look way better and more grounded than D3.

Did you even watch the original cut scene? I also watched some leaked cut scenes with spoilers, guy literally getting shredded apart by a pack of dogs flesh ripping from every part of his body. This game will be every bit as gory and metal as D2 from a gore stand point.
How come every thread I see you in you miss the mark everytime with some stupid take. "blizz is scared of giving people ptsd visual" L O L

Sure the game looks very unpolished and is hard to see it shipping in this state, but Friends and family betas tend to be many builds behind the actual beta. They have all the ground work laid out and have 9 months to get all the VFX in fix visual polish etc. A lot of the stuff is literal place holders to test the system.
Another thing to note is the guy never used a mount and the world is so big the mobs felt a bit lack luster. I feel once mounting is unlocked it makes the world feel more evenly distributed.

My biggest problems with D4 isn't gameplay or the look of the game, but the way they added big damage numbers to items and smart loot. It seems like they have some really cool robust systems in place to keep the game fresh literally tons of content. There is a chance it will flop, but I am not going to judge a game off of 35 minutes of gameplay.

Ah yes, way to false report I'm so scared!! Hope you get some warn for it. I can reply to whom ever I choose this is a open thread. If anything what you posted was spam because it is nonsensical.
If you actually put thought and did some research on the game that you're commenting on I wouldn't have to show you counter examples to your flaccid arguments of why D4 is "bad".

Skills and movement is too much like D3


this pretty much

skills and movement are what make d2 fun.

but they'll focus on visual and story because videogames have to be developed and written like movies now.

Your observation is in accordance with mine, I posted this weeks ago:

D3 and D4 were made to be non-violent, non-upsetting, and MMO style. A story telling abra-cadabra that brought Cineplex into your gameplay making it less interactive.


It looks like we're circling around the same idea but it's not obvious to put into words.

I forced myself to watch full 50 mins.
Probably it will look better after release, but overall feeling it is just D3 engine where you just don't care about any positional combat - just nuking everything around, and what scared the scene is not clear at all - hard to see monster when strange aoe effects go out constantly.

looks like a diablo version of lost ark to me. which probably blizzard will be happy with. If they have free trading and don't neglect pvp, preferably have BGs and stuff like that, I will enjoy it. If not, it's 1-2 playthroughs for me and ill be bored. It can be good but most likely bad. not saying i agree with even the majority of what was shown on the footage. I too hate the blizzard south over-the-top visual effects and cluttered screen and numb gameplay. And it seems to play alot like D3 mechanically. But lost ark with diablo atmosphere and lore is worth a playthrough, for sure.

laughed my ass off when the dude goes "needs more VFX" after rating DIV:s level of fun as "moderate".


embarrassing, I knew I was watching some graphic oriented xbox-sofa gamer by how slow he was to pick up visual cues from the game on what to do and where to go... sigh.
