    Goddamn this is epic. Anime style, yes, which doesn't really fit Diablo's vibe but... damn, just watch it. NOW!

    So this is why it took so long for a fourth season of Metalocalypse.

    I was expecting way more awesome. I actually laughed at the small derp derp monsters talking to each other, like the dialogue was needed for me to understand what they were doing since im braindead.
    The justice archangle's introduction was sweet though. Always liked those "sweeping" fight scenes in anime.

    Can't even imagine how awesome it would have been as a traditional Blizzard CGI movie, like the ones from D2 only in their modern quality.

    Disappointing, to say the least.

    I enjoyed it for what it was but the vibe was completely wrong. I'm not sure that it being traditionally animated was the biggest problem but it certainly didn't help. Furthermore the writing was bad and didn't fit Diablo.

    I am wondering what has become of the dark, gothic themed scenario and theme especially the first Diablo had - Anime style, seriously?

    What was that - a Saturday morning kids TV show. Blizzard and Co are obviously losing so much money that they need to revert to this cheesy shit. Make good games people.

    Yeah. I am quite baffled how long it took Blizzard to make this game. Yes, they are putting quite an effort into balancing and making a relatively bug-free game, but the amount of time and money that was already poured into this is ridicolous. Other studios could have delivered a game with the same quality in a much shorter timespan.

    They are always slow, just look at Diablo II and WarCraft III. I think that being bought by Activision may not have been the best thing for them... Still, Diablo III seems like it'll be mechanically solid from the beta, I just think that they are having far too much difficulty with other parts.

    A shining example of bad design that should not be in release is the skill UI. It's no Skyrim but it's still poorly designed. What's worse is that they went from a better UI to that so either someone was over thinking things or there is some ground for the theory that they are going to do a console port.

    I'd be surprised if they are having financial problems. I think that they just farmed out the animated short and simply gave the studio a plot outline for them to flush out. I think that you could make an animated Diablo work, especially for a short, but you nailed it, it felt like a Saturday Morning action cartoon with blood. I hate to say it but I think that the color palette might have been a bit too vibrant...

    That was . . . very lame. Is this Blizzard or the Justice League?

    You finally . . . really . . . did it.

    YOU MANIACS!!

    YOU BLEW IT UP!!!

    OH DAMN YOU!! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!!

    *Ahum*

    To be honest Diablo 2 had an aesthethic that I love, insanely so. But Blizzard seems unwilling to deviate from their predictable design stance. Diablo is dead to me now. Blizzard simply can't make something that takes itself seriously.

    Never played the second one, but could never get into the first one. Just seemed like hours of button mashing/clicking.
