While there really isn't too much information coming out of Blizzard's Diablo III camp at the moment, they've still put together a string of new screens for those anxiously awaiting the game, just to let them know it's still coming along nicely.

Today's new batch are a bit yawn-worthy though; essentially all desert-based. It's high-time we saw something new methinks. Check the samples below, and click here for the rest.

There's been heaps of information about Diablo3 around, just have to know about it. I've seen (although haven't watched) lots of videos and information around. I've been personally avoiding it so I basically don't know anything about it until I play the game.

im finding it hard to know the difference between what world of warcraft is and what diablo is. Obviously diablo is mainly single player and its not based on the warcraft world, but you essentially do the same stuff?0

different style of gameplay.
you craft your players to items more than having items for players.
Quicker to level up, therefore having more characters than in wow.
Its not mainly single player at all, though it is possible to play single player

I personally played diablo 2 for about 8 years and loved it and i couldnt stand wow. Found it boring as batshit. Always waiting around, always casting same shit in cycles, nothing new or interesting or sticky situations. Always either you kill it or it kills you with very limited (relative to d2) variability in style of gameplay

More fun ripping through a 100 monsters in a more aoe fashion or taking on one at a time than in wow when its 1 on 1 and if you agro 2 you die (for example)

my 2 cents anyways

World of WarCraft is an MMO.

Diablo is a hack-n-slash dungeon crawler.

how will you know whether or not to buy it



if(game.Box.HasBlizzardLogo())
{
   Buy(game);
}
else
{
   WaitForReview(game);
}
