Did I Just Say Valve > Blizzard?…DIABLO III

Here is the 20-minute gameplay video is hi-res glory.

Actually, I’m not quite sure what to think of the game just yet. It’s incredible that they’ve been working on the game for 3 years already, and you can tell in the polish shown in every aspect of the game already. Blizzard must have an “under penalty of death” clause in their employee contracts, as nothing is ever leaked.

On the other hand, the graphics are a bit underwhelming, much in the same way as Starcraft II‘s. I’m not even sure if it looks better than Titan Quest, a two-year-old game (and also the best Diablo 2 clone out there). Also, as a forum poster has pointed out, the colors just seem a bit off for Diablo.

This picture sums it up.

The physics and cool stuff shown off in the trailer more than make up for however many polygons are missing from player and monster models, though. Blizzard never fails to deliver, so of course I have faith the game will rock my socks.
