If you’ve been following Blizzard’s mysterious splash screens for the past several days, then you must have known that Blizzard is upto their sneaky best, updating a splash-screen on a daily basis, teasing the fans. There were several speculations as to what the splash screen could be: a new series, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft 2 or even Diablo III. After 5 days of torture and tease here’s the final splash:
YEAH BABY!!! I’m SUUUUUPER excited, I’ve been a huge fan of Diablo, Diablo II in particular since I’ve only played the demo of Diablo. Diablo II had me addicted to it for like 3 years – my friend picked up the original, he didn’t like it.I gave it a try and was INSTANTLY addicted to it.
So what will Diablo 3 be like? What will be the camera? Same isometric perspective as that of Diablo II or something different? Multiplayer: Will it be based on Battle.Net, Free or like WoW? When will it be out? What will the system requirements? Oooh so many questions!
Check out Blizzard’s Diablo 3 page for some gameplay videos and here’s a Cinematic Trailer of it.
Update: Kotaku has a 19-minute gameplay video, the trailer and artwork clip.

Yeah that’s right, twenty freakin’ minutes, and this is just a “teaser”. The devs claim that FarCry 2 has over 50 square kilometers of open area, over 100 missions, and over 50 hours of gameplay(what’s with everything being a multiple of 50, I wonder).
The game looks awesome though, and devs claim that still lot of work needs to be done – which was apparent from the demo, as it crashed mid-way during the demo, and there was lot of tearing and. lagging.
Based on the Dunia engine, the gameplay demo was pretty awesome – specially the physics.
So, will this be the new Crysis – in terms of hogging system resources that is? Will the question shift from “Will this run Crysis” to “Will this run FarCry2” now ?
Your guess is good as mine.
Till then, enjoy the video
I’m a huge fan of Sports/GT-Racing genre of games. Recently Codemasters had released their newest game, GRID, and I’d downloaded the demo version of GRID couple of days ago and decided to check it out.
And yes the visual presentation just blew me away! Everything looks gorgeous, from the menu screens which are alive in 3D, to the loading screens which, instead of the usual flat progress bar, show your accomplishments in your career.
