Diablo III: Maybe the Philistines Are Right
by Brad Shoemaker on
I don't know, this new fan-made desaturated video makes a fairly convincing case. Your thoughts?
Man, I feel like a total hypocrite for throwing in with this lot after just railing against people who post online petitions earlier today. But this example looks an awful lot more like the Diablo I remember than the stock footage does. Maybe I missed out on the necessary high school goth phase that would have purged my need for such darkness, but I always liked that the Diablo games skewed a lot grittier next to the tongue-in-cheek humor of Starcraft and Warcraft's relatively cartoon-like style. It's not that the default art style looks bad, it just doesn't scream Diablo at me the way this does. Anyway, I have the utmost faith that Blizzard will continue to make excellent games until they prove me wrong, so let's all just wait till we get our hands on the final game before passing any serious judgement. In 2019.
