sry for the spam but i just had to let everyone know that it will be announced at the world wide invitational in Paris.

and to make it related to computers... im still happy with my Q6600 and asus maximus formula. however for some reasons my cpu temps have gone up by a few c. I am however quite disappointed with my 9800gx2

More about : diablo blizzard

It's not confirmed, it's all speculation. And as far as the 9800gx2 goes, give it some time for drivers to mature a bit. It might surprise you yet

sorry but I doubt that diablo 3 will be anounced until another 1-2 years minimum, warcraft is just making too much money (also most of the diablo staff is gone and blizzard would never risk making a crappys equel)

If it is diablo (I would love it to be) then I will be SO ******* happy that I'll be building a new computer around that time (usually games come out around 1.5 years after anouncement, give or take 6 months)
June 25, 2008 9:17:07 PM

Didn't they say it's a new game entirely (maybe the new MMO they've been working on for the past few months?)

Other than that, the stupid splash page could be anything from wow wwotlk, to d2, to sc2 related because it has everything from it. I've also read the letter W, L, & D are somewhere in the pic (no clue where).

I mean, it'd be nice if it was a new franchise and all but...


for gods sake, you have any idea how lucrative the diablo license is?
to just put it off to one side would be the weirdest thing they can possibly do.

then again, they're the only company that can afford to do something like that when every other company would be milking the hell out of a good license.

Blizzard have a 100% hit track record and make perfect games. Blizzard is golden.

and just yesterday the url diablo3.com stopped redirecting to diablofans.com

on the computer side of the things... the reason your temps went up is... ITS THE SUMMER... mine went up almost 10c
June 25, 2008 9:46:04 PM

We've been getting higher humidity (feels like it anyway), other than the temp outside going up 40C from the winter (from -20 to +20 lol).
June 25, 2008 11:20:48 PM

In the southern hemisphere it's winter ;)

and i took that into account but that still doesnt explain why it has gone up since temperatures are the same here as they are in winter. in my house at least

anyways DIABLO DIABLO DIABLO
June 26, 2008 3:38:44 AM

i shall sell my soul to diablo again... x) just like i did for 3 years with d2. haha! it shall be glorious!
June 26, 2008 5:11:57 AM

June 26, 2008 6:33:12 AM

I guess im a sinner, I never played Diablo.
June 26, 2008 9:13:22 AM

It had quite horrible graphics when it was released and the resolution was locked at a rather low level, if i recall it right. It was still a fun game.

Never ? Ever ? Any of them ? You are indeed a sinner. Now get both Diablos and their expansions.

Hell i can play Tristam Theme in the guitar !!!! Great music score btw.
June 26, 2008 8:04:16 PM

ya the graphics are really meh but its a super super fun game
June 26, 2008 8:44:14 PM

And it's got free downloadable mods that make it even more fun. I spent 6 months with one called Ancestral Recall and even more with one called Valhalla. Hundreds of new cube recipes, caves full of Diablos, etc.. :pt1cable: 
June 26, 2008 9:37:54 PM

Really? Can I ask how much he got for it?
June 27, 2008 6:37:16 AM

20 minutes until new splash screen :D 
June 27, 2008 6:57:15 AM

Ooh! Its hard to say but they look pretty devilish. I don't know what the new runes represent.
June 27, 2008 8:15:05 AM

the new splash screen looks like a protoss zealot imo..... **** lol

anyways all the runes are from Diablo games. the one in the top right is hel rune from d2, the one in the top left is from the sword the lich king has, and the one in the bottom left is the sign for protoss. i have yet to figure out the bottom right one or the new one at the center top
June 27, 2008 8:28:16 AM

ugh some **** gave a link that somehow had d3 added... false alarm... :( 
June 27, 2008 11:53:37 AM

Well, the "eyes" (if you can call em that, since it just looks like space and they could be comets on a collision course) look exactly like Lich King, but the ridge between does not. So what could it be?

And there's a Diablo 4, 5.. discussion (if you change the link, same for WC4), but this could be a major slip on their part.. If they remove it, we'll know they're hiding it!

Anyway, comparison pics, look between the eyes..

Tassadar, is that you ? EN TARO ADUN TASSADAR !!

To the OP, how long has it been since you installed the HS. Arctic Silver 5 and similar thermal pastes degrade every 6-12 months, you might need to reapply the thermal paste.
June 28, 2008 5:23:21 PM

omg

those are all the words that i can say
June 28, 2008 5:27:57 PM

Mental ? i am able to write again, after reading all the info yesterday. Finished my bottle of Bushmills (Trilple Dist. BE), and gave the Ms something to smile about.

Great news :)  Excelent news
June 29, 2008 5:02:59 PM

It is the great3est news EVER!, I am so going to buy the 150$ UBER Collector's pack

aah, I remember such fond memories of Diablo 2... like the time I had an exam the day after yet I was half-studying half playing, which isn't a very good idea when you got dial-up, my dad was pissed when he picked up the phone...
June 29, 2008 11:28:29 PM

Thank you Maverick7, that's excellent news.

I guess I'll buy myself a Havok card when the game is released - might as well get things right :)

I doN,t think Havok has a card per say, intel CPUs support it and AMD/ATI got permission to support it as well so Intel with ATI card should be what you need (I might be wrong though)
June 30, 2008 12:18:00 PM

Loved it, thanks!

I wonder how it would work on my 8800GTX. Has anybody seen any system requirements so far?
June 30, 2008 2:53:18 PM

I'm a bit surprised that they only have 5 classes. Hopefully they'll add another bunch in an expansion pack, like last time. Apparently they kept the barbarian and a sort of necro. I assume they also kept the sorceress and amazon, since those were by far the most fun IMO, at least in solo play, and they always won the ladders. I wonder what was dropped - paladin, druid or assassin.
