>>1349098yeah, they were progressive before it was coolit will never be cool
>>1349048Go back to crying on /v/
>>1349048don't see the difference outside of amazon shitty ass warcraft shoulders
>>1349048Necro and Sorceress look great
>>1349048fuck off to /v/
>>1349048They all look so old and tired.
>killing vicarious vision because blizzard is full of incompetent devsI can't laught , OP
>>1349831>waah the atmosphere and design isn't dark enough>waah the characters don't look like my favorite anime!
>>1349048On the plus side, they didn't put the Sorceress in a burka. On the minus side, all the females have the same face now.Eh, I am still salty after W3:Reforged, so I will probably pass on it anyway.
>>1349831trannies are the new normal now.
>>1349831Here’s the actual amazon from hots, anon’s pic related is a skin for another character.
>>1349805I mean considering what happened to the Paladin's homeland and religion, that seems appropriate.
>>1350041>everyone being ugly is actually good since it's not like anime
>>1350041They look like transwomen lmao, look at that manjaw
I'm just glad the gameplay looks to be more or less the same as the original, which a remaster should be. Just more stash space, more than 2 buttons at a time for abilities. It seems like it's mostly just making PlugY official.On the plus side, they said the original D2 will be completely untouched because "we learned important lessons from the implementation of Warcraft 3 Reforged">>1350099Man what if they did make it anime though? But like a gritty seinen way. I'd be down for that
>>1349831That's Novazon. Novazon is a hilarious story, by the way, because when they made an amazon skin for Nova, they apparently didn't even consider the possibility of adding the actual Amazon in the game.So when they eventually did, they made amazon look absolutely nothing like herself so she would be easily distinguishable from the Nova skin. And they also deleted Novazon's default brown tint.
>>1349098He used to be South American or something like that, now he is just a nigger, the most disgusting kind too. It's like making appealing characters is prohibited in the west now, the worst timeline.
>>1350193>south americanDo you even know where the paladin is from in-world, burger retard
>>1350193I like how he doesn't appear to be in any hurry on this image
>>1350199Why are you mad again? Are you a blizzardrone?I am not american.
I can't even tell why barbarian looks so silly to me.
>>1350212>get triggered>someone calls you out for being stupid and triggered>w-why u mu-mad?Bravo, burger.
>>1350200He's a hammerdin, he knows he's about to carry the fight
>>1350214He looks like a washed up actor not a barbarian
>>1349307>having ONE black dude is progressiveI get you fucks get uppity about diversity in games but Jesus Christ, is a game allowed to have humans from all races or does anything darker than mediterranean trigger you?
IT'S MA'AM YOU BIGOT!
>>1350310what a very handsome woman
Why is the paladin black?
>>1350310i have no problem with mature women, or women that have strong features, but this looks like Dolph Lundgren...
>>1350347Why aren't you?
Say it with me kids:Always online.And this will still not be a wake up call to stop funding shitty cash grabs.
i figured out why i don't like it>make a unique world with unique people; their own stories, backgrounds and locations>the characters you select seem exotic, they seem like heroes20 years later>make a boring world with boring earth people; everything is the same as earth just with changed names>the characters look like modern day people you'd meet on the street, nothing exotic or heroic about them>this was done ONLY to sell more copies
You can keybind anything you want in the original.
>>1350379>Always online.My middling interest just disappeared completely.
>>1350379>>1350395It's probably safe to assume but do we have proof?Remember: Good or bad; do not preorder this shit.
If you bitch about previously black characters being slightly more dark and people in Diablo world being ugly then you might consider seeking help.
>>1350419Black saviour complex
>>1350419Paladins in diablo were black before you were born.
I am not sure if thread being spammed by a buttblasted nigger or a Blizzard employe, but no, fuck off.
>>1350424If you think the issue is him being BLACK then you're not paying attention. He went from a respectable paladin who just happened to be black to HOOBA DOOBA WHERE THE WITE WOMAN AT!? It's not his skin that's the issue. He looks like a joke. I half suspect the people behind this are actually racist, pretending this is some push for REAL diversity so they can push this shit, and everyone is too stupid to catch the joke.
>>1350437oh i completely agree. but that wasn't at all how the question was framed.
>>1350415You should consider killing yourself, cuck.
Why are WRPGfags like this
>>1350379Probably no private lobbies either.
>>1350310The Assassin is also a strong and beautiful woman now.
>>1350560Sucks but desu I liked the chink wizard girl in d3
>>1350310I don't know, isn't this what scandinavian women look like in their forties?
>>1350596So the Amazon has to look like your mom post menopause because uhhhh?
>>1350601well, just saying it doesn't scream tranny to me.
>>1349048really trying your hardest to drum up a "controversy" out of thisat least start making yt videos or somethingrake some cash as a grifter instead of crushing our balls every goddamn day
>>1349048Fucking love it when Blizzdrones try to defend this shit. Feels good to be a PoeCHAD
I unironically like these designs a lot. They look ugly, old and tired, just like how I want my RPG characters to lookNever understood the desperate need some people have for pretty characters
>>1350652Go lube up your hemorrhoids you stupid boomer.
>>1350212Why are they shorter and wider?
>>1350672>I WANT A WAIFU I WANT A WAIFU I WANT A WAIFU REEEEEEEno tendies for you
>>1350672Diablo 2 is a boomer game though
>the only thing this gaylord website is able to talk about is political/social garbageI want to go back in time, now more than ever.
>>1350379they've already confirmed that you can play the game offline, why are you lying to yourself and others just because you desperately wish to be upset about something?
>>1349048>>1350806What the FUCK are they doing to my nigga Minsc
>>1350806They somehow made Necromancer even uglier looking and I don't mind it. I guess being a pasty white guy was the only way to escape the remake as untouched as possible.
>>1350310>here's your girl, bro
Eh, not all of them are bad. 1. Assassin looks like a hapa with daddy issues, stars in thrust abuse vids2. Amazon looks like a 45 year old Norwegian woman. Eh, why not3. Druid cool, looks like a crazy guy. 4. A fucking nigger5. Spooky necromancer, cool. 6. Fat barbarian, I’ve never felt represented by a video game character till now 7. Mexican house cleaner, an objective improvement over the fucking pajeeta she was before.
Never played D2 before I think the necromancer looks cool as hell
Since I'm only seeing coomers complaining, I'm guessing this year's BlizzCon was pretty alright.
Is this remake going to be pre-rendered like the original? Not interested in 3d games.
>>1350200That image never fails to crack me up>Barb dead because lol shitty class without gear>Necro getting fucked up because for once he's the one getting bone'd prisoned>The two females hiding, not knowing what to do>Paladin walking in proudly ready to fuck shit upPretty much sums up 20 years of D2 in one image
>>1349048Only the amazon and the assassin look terrible imoAmazon looks way way too oldAssassin looks asian,didn't she have snow white skin or something?Barbarian looks well like a barbarian ok all in allPaladin looks great too,i'm just surprised that people wonder why is he black he always was thoughNecromancer and Sorcereres look greatDruid looks like a very feral goes with the theme of shapeshifting
>>1351309No class is useless if you run the right build. The problem of D2 is that to figure out what the good builds are you need to delve into game mechanics at the code level. Or blindly follow guidelines from people that did.
>>1351343I know this, I played D2 before LOD was even released. If anything, runes killed build diversity which is unfortunate to say even though I liked runewords as a concept.
>>1351340Do you have actual eyesight problems if you think the paladin looks "great"?
>>1351370Look at the amazon anon,it could be worse much much worse anon
>>1351392>not being the worst designed character in video games to date means it's greataight
>>1350310I wouldn't really have a problem with this, this just looks like an old, weather-beaten woman, but the Amazon isn't supposed to be this old.
>>1351468Naw dog, if you crop everything but the face there isnt a single female feature to it
>>1349048they lock homeless and aged version addited to cowking crack
>>1351497I don't know what to tell you, other then woman end up looking less feminine as they get older, much less one that's life would be very harsh, and dedicated to refining herself into a weapon.
The theme definitely seems to be that these are the same heroes 20 years later from the original releaseIn that sense, I like most of them. They definitely all look like they've been through some shit, except maybe the assassin who imo doesn't look like the original
>>1349098Not gonna lie. I am not that fond of negroes, but the idea of a darkie paladin was kind of cool, and it fit the setting and the region he came from.
>>1350212So, looks like I'm going druid this time. Huh.
>>1349816You say killed but they were always an activision company.
>>1350379>Say it with me kids:>Always online.I don't have to because they already confirmed it can be played offline.
>one of the characters gets his skin darkened by a shade or two>the entire board goes fucking apeshitI swear by fucking God...
>>1350806Necro is perfect, Barb looks a lot better there than on the character select screen. Also the Pally looks like an actor but I can't quite put my finger on who.
>>1351266I think they're either sprites that are supposed to emulate the look of 3D like the original did, or 3d that emulates the look of those original sprites. I can't tell which from the trailer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W41NvIgeKX0
>>1351964Keith David NOW maybe, but not Keith David when everyone knew him in movies.
>>1350041The irony being that an anime look is the only artstyle 4chan doesn't lose its shit about and constantly post pictures making fun of because the only criticism you can put forth is that it's weebshit, which is completely toothless because that's exactly what weebs want.
>>1351948Barbarian looks so goddamn tired.
>>1352022True but unlike on the character select screen, he actually looks like the Barbarian. He also kinda looks like Dave Bautista for some reaosn.
>>1350806Wait hold up, is this supposed to be the original party 20 years later and that's why everyone looks older? Is that why it's called Ressurrected? Is the game a stealth sequel?
>>1352045A sequel where the exact same events of D2 play out in the same way they did the first time, with D3 completely ignored?
It really is a shame they shit the bed with d3 level/loot design, the wizard has a lot of really cool spell effects and graphics.
>>1352064I mean I don't mind not having to click gold to pick it up but otherwise yeah. Understand that Diablo was never actually made by Blizzard, Blizzard North was a small company they acquired that made D1 and 2. It seems like they know they can't make a proper Diablo themselves which is why they had someone else do this remaster and those same people are apparently helping work on 4.
you guys are unironically schizos
>>1351109Simon Belmont?In my diablo 2?Konami confirmed for bros!!!
>Playing a sorceress.Why would I play a character who, canonically, gets murdered soon after the events of the game?
>>1352139Because what happens after D2 should be discarded.
>>1352045I think they just made the characters age with the game. I like it, a bunch of old timers still hacking away in a boomer nostalgia game
>>1349098>I keep tryna' get out but you people keep pullin' me back in
>>1350560Literally what is the issue here other than she's vaguely asian?
>>1350652I agree. I think they are appropriate for the setting.
>>1352223She doesn't look like an uncanny valley barbie doll and that's wrong
>>1352237why do you dudes get off at making ugly women?
Meh who cares you cant play 1.09 on it. enjoy your runeword cancer game
>>1350304They are e-puritains anon. If it isn't literal hitler it's bad.
>>1350310It's mainly the eyes and cheeks that's the issue
>>1352270looks even worse.
>>1352252How is the assassin even ugly? Like sure, complain about the Amazon (though I think she's fine, she's just old). But the assassin looks like an asian woman in her mid 20s. Hell, the only real difference between her and the original assassin is she's not pasty and has pants now.
>>1352252Why are you a faggot weebBam gottem
>>1352280>But the assassin looks like an asian woman in her mid 20s.Nope, she looks like an asian boy in his mid 30's.
>>1352279It's a shitty shoop to point out that the gaunt cheeks and male eyes that makes her look like she's close to retirement.
Reminder than even when Western devs try to make something sexy then end up with manfaced trolls either way
>>1352298>post contains words "western devs"retarded weeb opinion discarded
>>1352287You really need to get out of your house more and meet more actual people. I'm sure if not for the hair nobody would even be complaining, but the hair is exactly what she had in the og version.This is what happens when people base their standard of beauty off anime. She's not a 10 out of 10, but she's clearly a woman.
>>1352252>caring about the way your face looks in an ARPGthe real question i, why do you need every female to look sexually attractive? It makes no difference to the gameplay.>>1352288i'm sure a lot of exercise, testosterone, stress, and a frightening lack of make-up makes for a very strong looking woman.
>>1352223Assassin's the only one of the bunch I'd have an issue with, because I feel it's not really living up to her original incarnation very well. OG Assassin is deathly pale, and, idk, has a more gothic sort of look to her. This assassin just looks like some woman.
>>1352339I guess they just wanted more tone variety since Necromancer has the deathly pale look pretty locked down.
>>1352339Probably a devs 4/10 azn gf
>>1352353Maybe so, but there should be some sort of detail about her that gives off a deadly flair kind of feel, otherwise she just sort of comes off as flat and boring.
>>1352375nostalgia goggles in full effect
>>1352375She looks fat for an azn desu
>>1350310IT'S MA'AMAZON TO YOU
>>1350310It's like they took the face of the generic white male protagonist people complain about and plastered it on a female body.We've actually come full circle.
Paladin - Keith DavidNecromancer - Charles DanceBarbarian - Fulgencio BatistaSorceress - Diane GuerreroAmazon - Rhea SeehornAll the portraits are based on real-life people. They're pulling an Arcanum and Baldur's Gate here. The only ones I can't identify are Assassin and Druid.
>>1352468Barbarian isn't based on Fulgencio Batista, he's based on his grandson and fellow politician Davíd Batista
>>1352548You mean wrestler Dave Bautista
>>1352614Would you prefer if we said however? Are you ESL, "though" is a common use word in english.
>>1352614>>1352614>he doesn't know "though" is an actual English wordESL or uneducated American?
>>1352591>>1352548Yeah, sorry, I meant him.
>>1350560>>1350310Why are these men pretending to be women?
>>1352621>>1352697Stop replying to obvious bait.
Paladins are part of white, European Christian culture and heritage. Why does Blizzard insist on blackwashing history? This is tantamount to genocide.
>>1352773Why does /leftypol/ post such obvious bait?
>>1352313>i'm sure a lot of exercise, testosterone, stress, and a frightening lack of make-up makes for a very strong looking woman.Most of those things don't affect facial appearence.Working out doesn't affect your face.Stress effectively ages you.Make-up doesn't alter facial structure.The amazon doesn't look like a man. She looks like she's over 50 years old. A grandma.
>>1352773>Paladins are part of white, European Christian culture and heritage.The Paladins in Diablo have always been a wierd African-South American hybrid that comes from an ancient jungle and their capital looks like an Aztec city and they're surrounded by voodoo witch doctors.I know it's bait but I'm responding anyway.
>>1352773In diablo "the religion of light" came from kurast aka africa,makes sense that their crusader/paladin is black
>>1350350This about sums it up, it looks like she's been abusing testosterone since she was 16 like one of those east german athletes. That is possibly the most masculine face ever, that's a man baby.
>>1349048Why is the paladin black?
>>1352812Because he always was.
>>1352812cuz he is after your ass
>>1350806I like that the druid now looks like a backwoods hermit. Shame about Danny Glover paladin and manazon.
>>1350347He's from a jungle city that's located in not!brazil
>>1352896that's fine and all but why does he look like an american?
>>1352902which part of that picture says american?
I only played Amazon (Javazon with crazy lightning spam) and Necromancer (skellymancer for lots and lots of skellies). I tried the other classes at some point or another but I couldn't understand how anyone could enjoy them.Paladin is just a vanilla melee fighter with boring passive auras. Can this nigger even heal?Barbarian is pretty much the same except no auras. Just run, smash, repeat.Sorcerer is just a generic spell caster that goes pew pew with boring elemental spells. And god have mercy if you run out of mana potions.Rogue at least had a combo system going on but it was annoying and I was never a fan of traps.Druid I only played very briefly and I just remember him being a scuffed summoner to the necro and a shittier melee than barbarian (werewolf form).
>>1352921the two classes you supposedly enjoy have even less interaction for you than the other classes.
>>1349831At least the men are still allowed to be hotAnd if you're gay you're free from women Win/win scenario
>>1352955I like javazon because it was OP as shit and I like necro because I love commanding squads of +15 units. It was more about management than doing direct combat. The other classes lacked both.
>>1352920he looks straight out of sanford and sons.
>>1352455Well men are better at everything, even being a strong woman, so...
I find it ironic that the idea of a "strong woman" is to make them more male.
>>1350806Sorc is still reasonably cute.
>>1350806Hey buddy, I think you got the wrong door, katar club is two blocks down.
>>1352812He's not only always been black, he was originally voiced by Lamar from Revenge of the Nerds
>>1352045D2 confirmed to be a time loop where our characters actually have been doing Baal runs over and over for the last 20 years. Multiplayer was canon all along.
>>1350806Assassin looks north korean or even chinese. Amazon is straight up roman. Druid is like a frumpy celt. Paladin feels moorish. Necromancer gives five out of five signs of being a bavarian of advanced age, or drained of youth by dark magic. Barbarian is just Vin Diesel. Sorceress is indian.All in all it's a pretty good profiling.
>>1353380I don't know how many times it has to be said that he was always black. He was voiced by a black guy in 1999. Black people are not something new to the setting, the Sorceror in Diablo 1 was black.
>>1353397You may have problems with your reading comprehension but the did emphasise "monkey-faced". The paladin was a handsome nigga in D2.
>>1353411So was Keith David in the 1980s, but look at him now. Still handsome, but clearly much older.
>>1353380Might be based on this saint.
>>1353420I'm honestly starting to buy the theory that the reason everyone so old is legitimately because they made the characters age 20 years alongside the game.
>>1353433It's a remaster, so age can be portrayed by the graphics now. 20 years ago, the assassin was probably 8.
>>1349048>>1349831>>1350093>>1350560>>1352270Lets see what they do to Andariel before we lay judgment.
>>1354375We already have screencaps, she still has the pierced nipples with chain and the troll doll hair
>>1354383didn't original d2 (pre LOD) have nips?
>>1354375>playing d2 one night as a teen back in the 2000's>internet is out >horny>get to this boss>use one hand to make my character run around chugging potions while I jerk to her titties with the other
>>1352298Why do all these American companies make all the women look like men with tits, maybe they inherited more from the Greeks than just democracy?
>>1350310>>1349831>>1349098>>1350193You're a fucking retard, but Blizzard isn't worth defending, so that's all you get
>>1350652>>1352231But aren't they young adventurers starting at level 1?
>>1354855I don't think levels are actually a thing in-universe I think their power in the narrative came entirely from finding legendary gear and "experience" in fighting demons better, but in terms of raw skill they're about the same in acts 1-5.
>>1349098Did you even play the original version or are you just baiting?
>>1350806they feel a bit overdesigned, especially the amazon but it's not half badi wonder how will they fuck the game up though
>>1350806I'm actually surprised to see a barbarian as a barrel-shaped strongman for once instead of a standard appearance-only triangular bodybuilder shape. If you're at all familiar with medieval fight club type orgs, it's always the latter who wind up winded in no time and weak, they come in all confident and get fucking slapped by dudes who look like the one here and need a 3 hour lungs break. Pretty based if they actually did this research.
>>1351948pally looks just like alistair overeem
>>1352468Druid looks like Liam Neeson imo
>>1350806do they even know their target audience? noone wants to play as their MOMS
>>1350415>people in Diablo world being uglyWhat is even this argument?They weren't ugly before, why should i be okay with making them ugly now?And this isn't even just about the girls, the barbarian, the druid, and the paladin look awful too.
>>1355147>They weren't ugly beforeHow would you even know that based on their original pixelized character models?
>>1355155By not being blindAlso there were plenty of renders around.Fucking zoomer doesnt even know these games had manuals back in the day
>>1349048I don't give a shit about the faces anyway but if they were remaking the game why the fuck did they keep the clunky control scheme? What's the point in "changing things for a new generation" if you keep the worst thing in the game there?
>>1355100You just sold the druid for my character of choice when I play this.
Why are WRPGfags so mentally unstable?
>>1350806>We're creatively bankrupt, let's just re-release everything under the "remaster" meme
>>1349048as long as you can switch back to original artstyle like they're saying you can it's a day one purchase for meD2 is a huge pain to set up on W10
>>1355160>small 3D models made with crappy 2000 CGIYes, anon, I agree. Absolutely beautiful, pure 10/10.
>>1354615The Californian onions slurper cries out in pain as he forcefully adminsters HRT to tomboys and attractive women
>>1349048Why is the goth suddenly east asian?
>>1355382What do you have against inclusion and representation, you bigot?
Their retarded fanbase is pretty happy about it.
>>1355382Assassin always was the blandest character so I don't mind too much that they chinkified her. I guess it fits the stereotype since shes the most martial arts oriented characterBut even the D3 russian monk is way cooler than her
>>1355147>wahh I want pretty young charactersThis is a boomer game, zoomers need not to apply. Old, ugly and tired fits us just fine
>>1349048So what exactly happened to Blizzard between Diablo III and this remake that caused them to forget how to make decent graphics?
>>1349831What a nice touch, they made her age up 21 years to match the original.
>>1350381>the characters look like modern day people you'd meet on the street, nothing exotic or heroic about themAnd now you understand why anime characters look the way they do. Hell that's why all those 80's cartoon show characters made to sell toys also look the way they do, even the GI Joe characters have a lot of unrealistically perfect physical qualities to them and they're supposed to be the most realistic-looking toy line.
>>1355732>a cynic doesn't remember what's it like to actually enjoy his hobby
>>1350381>>1355889Heroic physique and beauty ideals are not standards like the bluehairs and basedgolems say they are, they're ideals. Something to strive to, women used to understand that and now even men are seething over them because they look like toads.
>>1355092I don't watch MMA so I had to look up who that is.
>>1355046I don't think that's doing your research, I think that's just basic knowledge that you only get the bodybuilder look if you starve yourself on top of constantly working out because that's what makes the abs so defined. Plus, most really strong martial artists today are bearmode.
>>1350806Necrochads, we won...
>>1355195I want to say nothing will change and they're paying lip service, but at the same time reddit bitching got Roosevelt's look in Civ VI changed before release so that he no longer looked like a cartoonish version of Taft. Pic related for before and after.
>>1355732I'm pretty sure what they're happy about is getting to play it, not how it looks
>everythings will remain the same excepts for the new audience that will leave 2 weeks post launchSo whats the point again?
>>1356915no bots no dupingshared stash
>>1356678actually rockefellers lmao*doxxxes u*
>>1356915Official PlugY implementation I guess? Single-player modding?
>>1357007????i don't even know what you're talking about. I think i'm going to go discuss obscure science fiction television shows lmaoyou guys are crazy:)
>>1357018What the hell are you babbling?
>>1357037Okay you do you. I'm just going to keep enjoying myself over here.
>>1357049I don't know what's going on and it makes me angry!
>>1356009Yeah Warcraft 3: Reforged never happened.
>>1356830Doesn't everyone look cartoonish or caricatured in CIV VI? That was actually one of my complaints when I first saw the screenshots.
>>1357142Yes but people at least want the cartoonish characters to actually look like the person they represent. Except for Ambiorix, he can stay the same because looking like an Asterix character is perfect.
>>1357183That IS what he looked like though, he just happened to look like an Asterix character.
>>1357183Okay, I guess, although I'd still prefer the slightly more realistic style from V.
>>1357207It's grown on me. I didn't like it at first but the new models got continually better over time (compare Basil II to Cleopatra and it's night and day), plus I really like VI's gameplay changes.
>>1357202It's almost as Asterix design was made with some real historical predecessor in mind...
>>1357218I mean only kinda, I'm a really big fan of Goscinny's work and he emphasized the cartoonish aspects because he wanted Asterix to be a small, seemingly weak man who defeats Caesar by outsmarting him, unlike his illustrator Albert Uderzo who wanted to make the characters look more realistic.
>>1357142They do but they made everyone ugly because it's woke I guess.They made a historically maligned and hated queen the rep for Korea because muh strong womyn, they also made her a fat goblina until Koreans said it was racist.
>>1357251That confused me because wouldn't you WANT a leader your people hated to be ugly?

>>1357251I don't know which one is which, but I definitely prefer the right one. That one at least makes her look vaguely Korean instead of... whatever the left one is.

>>1350652I'd like to shit on Blizzard once again but I actually agree with you anon. I dont know why but I find the pretty and handsome characters super borings in RPGs. I prefer old, seasoned adventurers with scarred face on which you can read their history and how much shit they've been through.It fits the dark and gloomy world of Diablo even more. It's not the kind of setting in which you expect to see some anime main character with a girly face.
>>1350310>tfw no titan's
>>1349048So are they fucking up original diablo 2 with patches like they did for wc3?
>>1352468druid is ted kaczynski
>>1349048the paladin is black so it sucks, make him blonde and scandinavian.
>>1349831she has a man's face in the ressurected version, this is trash
>>1359332I mean they explicitly said no and even if that was their intent, modded d2 runs off of the old 1.13 patch client that you can't even get anymore and is offline only.However the big reason it won't be changed, beyond them saying they won't reforge it, is because WC3 reforged was still running off of WC3's engine and was basically slapped on top of the original game. This isn't doing that, it's remaking the game entirely in a brand new engine that is disconnected from the original game, and apparently if you want to play the original version that comes with it, that itself is still running through the new engine. So this remake and the original D2 are on a technical level incompatible.
>>1349098you need to be 18+ to post here
>>1349098His player model was based on the guy who created the 3d models for the game. There is a pic of him on that old Diablo II fan site with dev pics and stuff,
>>1359385This. I never wanted to play as the Paladin because he's black. It doesn't make sense for a black to be a Paladin anyway.
>>1359385But Diablo 2
>>1359532>It doesn't make sense for a black to be a Paladin anyway.I mean in the context of Diablo's world it kinda does, the Paladin order and basically the primary religion of Sanctuatu come from a Jungle that's a wierd combination of Africa and South America.
>>1359561There's been a black hero in all 3 main diablo games, and all 3 fought against evil>Sorceror in 1>Paladin in 2>Witch Doctor in 3Take your /pol/shit out of here.
>>1359660Wow they're good in a fictional universe. I sure got told.
Imagine supporting blizzard and giving them money in the year 2020, after Reforged happened.
>>1350560she looks like a dyke but at least she has a woman's face.
>>1359496WC3 modified the original engine. If they had kept it has is, it would have been fine. The entire reason they got shat on is because WC3 Reforged ported the original graphics to the updated engine which caused tons of graphical glitches. This affected everyone who did not buy Reforged.
Fuck off Kevin, I know you're reading this
>>1360657Hey, fuck you right back, friend.
>>1360729I'm not your friend, pal
>>1360085It modified the engine, it didn't make a brand new one.
>>1350560at least it looks like a woman, I mean its still an ugly woman, but it has XX chromosomes if you know what i mean.
>>1359385>Scandinavian>paladinno, give him a leather hat and have him rape priests.
>>1352223>retcon her race>What's the issue?Double standards for starters. Ultimately if they want her to be a chink I can't change their mind but god damn is she ugly.
>>1350310I wouldn't mind a hyper-masculine amazon character if it wasn't because it's a fucking remake and it doesn't resemble the original at all.
>>1361464She doesn't look hyper-masculine, she just looks old. Women tend to look less feminine as they age
Apparently someone collected all the footage available so far including stuff that wasn't in the Blizzcon trailerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLtzKSTmT_kIt looks like Diablo 2 but at the same time the lighting in some areas is...wierd. Maybe it's because of ambient fog added or something but it reminds me of Diablo 1 more than 2
>>1361944>Old>Face of a literal man
>>1349831HOTS art team should run blizzard
>>1349831That's not the Amazon in the middle though, that's Nova from SC2 with a differnet skin.
>>1349831David Bowie looking fresh af after a tour in Tristram
>Assassin is supposed to be Russian>Paladin is supposed to be Cambodian>Amazon is supposed to be a beautiful woman>Druid looks like he’s dying.
Well, this art direction is much better than Diablo III WoW crap. I'll take it. But...Eh... Paladin made me realize I might be racist. Like, an actual unironic racist.When I look at his face my ancient lizard brain scream - DANGER! DANGER! Gather your tribe and throw pointy sticks at him!I'm not being an ainternet edgy asshole her, I really do find him disturbing on some primordial biological level.
>>1364002And assassin looks like this stupid shrinked face meme. For me, it enters uncanny valley territory.
>>1364002And yes. Amazon looks like a dude 100%. And I say this as a guy who finds MMA females attractive.
I don't know what you faggots are talking about. Game looks great. Yes, characters do not look like idealistic heroes because it is Diablo and that is a fucked up setting. Warcraft sucked but there were warning signs all over that. I despise what Blizzard turned into so that may be the reason why I won't get this, but all the videos and shit of the remastered version look good to me. Meaty barbarian, amazon that looks like a warrior and not a cosplayer of one, a necromancer that looks like he's gonna keel over any day now from his particular specialization, a rugged druid and a paladin that fits his universe. The assassin and mage look kind of weird though.
>>1364002>>1364008>>1364013And having said all that... I still find the general art direction very good.They clearly have an agenda, but this time an agenda comes with a quality creative vision. A rare occurrence.It makes me confused, I would rather just simply hate it.
>>1349048Just finished Divinity with the friend, maybe we will try this one after that.I like Necro.>>1357429>NobodyHey, that's rude even if it's true.
>>1353087These people are the embodient of congnitive dissonance, doublethink doesn't even begin to describe their mental gymnastics.
>>1364014Yeah, looks fine to me. Fucking brainworm niggers are so primed for constant conflict that literally the most tame changes still triggers their lil lizard brains.
>>1353087I will go full Peterson with the idea of inferring the intent from consequences and say that the whole point is unironically to make women uglier.Having said that, I think that this one >>1364014 is right. It fits a low fantasy setting.
>>1350212>every single one of them looks worsehow is this possible.
>>1361436>What's best in life?
>>1364805Necromancer and Sorc look fine.
>>1364848Sorc looks like a poo now and Necro is darkskinned for some reason
>>1364858>Necro is darkskinnedI do not see it. Maybe slightly? Both have a pale, dirt-like complexion, which is fitting.>Sorc looks like a poo nowMaybe a waist is a bit too broad.The only thing that I really don't like is the leg things which look like stockings. She looks like a stripper.
>>1349048Well, to be fair, it is an alpha, as those might be WIP models. They might look better in the final product, it won't be the first time.Monkey's paw.
>>1363991>Druid looks like he’s dying.Well he IS playing Druid>Paladin is supposed to be CambodianIf you at least said Aztec I'd buy it because of how their capital looks
>>1363072Well at least the gameplay section looks good. That being said, adding smooth animations to moves that still has the exact same timing it did in 1999, while a very nice attention paid to being faithful, does comes across as a big janky-looking. But then I suppose it's more important that it plays right.
>>1349048What are the chances this is not gonna be another Reforged-type disaster? Reforged also looked good in the first trailer.
>>1364858>Necro is darkskinned for some reasonNo? We have the official renders, he's pale as fuck. It's just the dark lighting in that screen.I'd post it directly but it says it's not compatible so here's a linkhttps://imgur.com/QWupMUS
>>1365028>Reforged also looked good in the first trailer.No it didn't, even with that bullshot "cutscene" that turned out to not be in the actual remaster, it looked bad.
>>1365028Literal revisionist history, people day 1 were saying that Reforged looked like shit, Arthas's pauldrons were gigantic, it was trying too hard to be WoW, etc.
>>1357251>>1357257They're both ugly.
>>1353397He looks brasilian in that pic. In other official pics, it's not so clear.
I say wait until release. Because WC3 looked bad but in hindsight the visuals were such a tiny, insignificant thing compared to all the problems we found at release.
>>1365038He looks like Geralt if he had aids.
>>1365783I mean he's a necromancer so I can't say it isn't fitting. It's the one class where it's ok for him to be ugly.
>>1350041I agree with anonugly people, blacks and transwomen really belong in grimdark settings where everything is awful and demons walk the earth
>>1364269Truth is stranger than fiction.
>>1355889I'm not a /toy/ expert but I thought Joe abandoned realism a long time ago
>>1366263Absolutely. Just making the comparison. Corpse fucking and life energy draining should male you into one ugly bastard.
>>1367802cool court jester
>finally get Leaf for my Fire Druid>damage immediately doubles for Firestorm
>>1350806Druid is actually kino as a weird nature hermit who talks to animals and starts fires. They better not change him.
>>1350806Initially I thought they had lazily used a character generator to make the humans, but look at this it's clear that that isn't the case, they put all of that work and detail into characters who from step one are just poorly designed, none of their detail is fitting, the Barbarian in the original has a lot of detail put into his muscles, he looks like a very idealized physical form, whereas the new one looks like a realistic physique of someone who earned their strength through combat, but Diablo is Fantasy, so there is just no need to be realistic in this fashion.The new Necromancer has an unfitting square jaw, which makes no sense, the old design they gave him a long face to emphasize him looking gaunt and sickly, why they de-emphasized this by giving him a very wide jaw is mind boggling.Street Monkey is just retarded, and actually kind of racist that the devs think that Africa is a monoracial monoculture, the original one was clearly some kind of reference to early christianity of East Africa, which was christian before Europe was.Man-azon is another character that really needs no explanation.The original Assassin was very sleek and dark, her light skin contrasted well with her dark colour scheme, and her body was extra skinny to match her slick hair and facial features, why is she asian now? did they need to push the diversity for this?Sorceror and Druid are just more of the same shit.
>>1368319New designs are shit and don't uphold a lot of the intentional design choices of the original game.
>>1365010Kurast is blatantly Asian and based on Angkor Wat and Cambodian culture.This is the problem with you mutts you don’t know anything outside of America.
>>1368340I wanted to point out some of the poor choices they made, because a lot of it is basic shit conflicting with a design that in the original had a lot of minor facets that built towards a consistent overall design.
>>1365433I don't think they will try to fuck this one up.
>>1368346Just say whether something's based or cringe, or if it has soul or not. We dropped the pretense of caring about arguments.
>>1365433What youre missing about the Visuals being bad is that they were basically a red flag, they clearly had no visiion for how they were going to approach redesigning Warcraft 3, and that at it's core lead to every minor facet being bad, and that's where Diablo 2 is right now, at a bare minimum they can't completely fuck over the Diablo 2 gameplay, especially since you can just turn off the new graphics.
>>1367802I like the story of Yasuke and all but technically he wasn't a samurai, he was a retainer. Which is nothing to scoff at when the person you're the retainer for is Oda Nobunaga, but a samurai that is not.
>>1368369My point is in hindsight I wish all we got was shitty visuals.
>>1368369>they can't completely fuck over the Diablo 2 gameplay, especially since you can just turn off the new graphics.We thought the same with Reforged. And we know how this turned out. Blizzard is very deliberate with their wording.
>>1349831d2 amazon also looked like shit. you people need to take your schizo pills
>>1368415I guess i am potentially being naive about this, they are modern Blizzard and they will definitely find a way.
>>1368440D2 Amazon looked shit because of the era, the tools were very limiting and the understanding of 3d art was very limited, people really didn't really understand topology and working in 3d a lot of artists didn't spend a lot of time looking at their art from many different angles, and everything was built around subdivision modelling, so minor topological issues would lead to strange deformations later on.Nowadays 3d art is a very honed skill set and the tools are light years beyond what they used to be, even the workflow is way different these days and subdivision modelling which used to be the only way to do humans is used very rarely. Diablo 2 remaster Amazon is the result of bad art direction, Diablo 2 Amazon is a relic of it's time.
>>1368464the point is you will never see their face once you pass the character select screen
>>1350212Necro looks great. That's all I really care about.
>>1368483And the world building of the game is irrelevant if you don't read it either, the game has lots of bad decisions going into it, and this is now the standard at Blizzard.
>>1367802Wasn't he given back to his slave masters kek?
>>1368294/threadYou perfectly summed up the issues with resorting to shitposting and getting in to an autism fight.
>>1369270Not him, and I mean you're right that I can see it. But all I can say with my 1080p monitor is "barely"
>>1364269Wasn't that proven to be false?
>>1370038yes, but once something is out there, debunked or not, some people will continue to believe in it...just look at breakfast cereals, so many people still think it's healthy shit's been destroyed in like 85
>>1369270Wow, 10 pixels of face. Who fucking cares? It's Diablo, not Overwatch where you can coom to ass and face.
>>1368335if only you knew how bad things really are, this site is full of actual special ed kids these days
>>1369270>literally just a couple of pixelsDesperate.
>>1360006And a man's body, she has the figure of a 60-year old tranny.
>>1349048Talk about soul and soulless.What I dont understand is why make them different?Why just not fucking carbon copy the sprites? Incompetence?
>>1370180I eat them because they are tasty.
>>1370714Boogers? Yeah, me too.
>>1350560she needs to be pale. pale as the necromancer
>>1352452Everyone is ragged or ugly in Vermintide, it's very consistent for Warhammer.
>>1371662Elf could be attractive and bardin is 10/10 for a dwarf, it's just warhammer humans that are ugly.
>>1349831>Whats the matter? Can't stand the sight of a strong Nord woman?
>>1349294Yeah but he wasn't full on broad nose, nappy headed melanin enrichedin
>>1372585Elf IS attractive iirc, except for the dead eyes
>>1374547We don't really know, face is all covered up and is clearly not a finished model. She looks like this in game currently, if you get her to spawn without a hat model. I do like that render though, even if her nose should probably be a bit bigger based off how the mask looks.
>>1355856Got rid of all of their old talent that actually knew how to make things look good. The last decent artists in Blizzard were on the HotS team, and that got disbanded recently as well. People have been fixating on the character models, and they are pretty fucking bad, but it's not the only thing that looks wrong in the remaster. For an example, you might notice that Andariel's dungeon uses a warm color palette instead of the cold colors of the original, creating an entirely different kind of feeling - it's like the horrible catacombs full of dreadful abominations from hell is meant to be cozy, warm and inviting; I don't know jack shit about art and even I know that. There's also a lot less detail in the assets. It seems like a combination of poor/inexperienced art direction and just laziness from the modelers. Lighting and shadows also look fucked, but maybe that's due to being an alpha.There's also the fact that the game looks kinda awkward due to not being designed for 3D (animations look stiff due to low framerate, etc) because they were too cheap to redraw everything and just make a proper, HD version of the original graphics (like was done with SC:R, which looks great).
>>1357393>whatever the left one is.American race
>>1375948>The last decent artists in Blizzard were on the HotS team, and that got disbanded recently as well. This is just borderline delusional levels of contrarianism. There's plenty to shit on blizzard for, but their art teams are pretty consistently great at making shit in whatever style they're asked to. The OW character designs are pretty exceptional in a whole heap of ways, and the stuff in D2 remaster looks absolutely fine. A bunch of retards constantly trying to force new TORtanics doesn't really mean anything.
>>1376049>the stuff in D2 remaster looks absolutely finelol>trying to force new TORtanicsMore like seeing a pattern in everything Blizzard is done for the past 15 years, you stupid fucking shill
>>1367914I'm not talking about the outfits and equipment here. Look at the facial features, the body shape and proportions. Characters like this Duke, the other Duke from earlier, and the Duke that nobody on 4chan talk about are all crafted with seemingly no physical flaws to them whatsoever, or it takes these flaws and makes them seem like they aren't flaws at all.
>>1376083>More like seeing a pattern in everything Blizzard is done for the past 15 years, you stupid fucking shillYou're trying too hard
