Diablo III Witch Doctor Trailer

This trailer profiles the Witch Doctor class in Diablo III, Blizzard's imminent action/RPG sequel (thanks Ant). The clip shows concept art and gameplay footage while an imposing voice over explains the Witch Doctor's powers to cause illness (hey, at least he makes house calls!).

What I hate about this character is not that it's basically the WoW warlock class -- which you don't really want in a Diablo kinda game, imo -- but the whole thing it represents.

What gave them the idea that a ricebelly with parkinson is anywhere near as cool as a charismatic although bloodchilling necromancer? This WD look is just horrible and not in the least heroic. Bah.

Seriously though, I think they dropped the looks ball on every class. The Demon Hunter looks like Justin Bieber gone gothic, the Monk looks like Osama Bin Laden and... neh the mage and barbarian are alright, I guess.

I notice that in all new games they try to be creative with the characters, completely ditching the favorite stereotypes people have grown to love for a reason. Where's the literal knight/paladin in shining armor, for example?

Every character in D3 is "Meh.", except for the WD. That one is just "Ugh! Get out of my face!".

Gameplay wise I guess most gamers will have a character that suits their taste, luckily.
