In other news, I randomly saw the D3 TV spot while channel surfing. I didn't even realize until it was half over that it *was* the D3 TV spot because apparently we've gone back in time twelve years to the Final Fantasy VIII era when game commercials never actually bothered showing in-game footage.
Blizzard's cinematics have always been great. I will always give them all the credit in the world for that. Unfortunately when it comes to the games themselves, they're always a good 5+ years outdated visually, Diablo 3 is no exception here, really the game probably should have been released in 05 since graphically that's about what it looks like.
Which is the other thing with Blizzard that's always bothered me, they never show gameplay in their promotional/tv trailers, it's always cinematics.
