Didn't everyone trash talk Quake III for having the same ol color scheme as Quake I & 2?

For that matter, didn't Diablo II have us wandering through lush (albiet much less impressionistic) countrysides? Was I the only one on the Blood Moor, with the bridge and the water flowing casually underneath, and the lush grass?

 Shees, you can't please anyone these days. Lighten up people the world is in color...get used to it. Besides, I'm sure there will be more than everyone's share of dank and dirty areas that reak of chaos. I for one love the new look.

Find something real to complain over.

 

...and Star wars card games lost what little prestige factor they had when Prescidence Publishing decided to release it's entire game anew, declaring that all my thousands of "first edition" cards were null and void.

 Actually, Quake III didn't  have the same color palatte as Q1 and Q2, which both used a lot of earthtones (brown ftw). Q3 had many more metallic surfances, green acid, and organic red arenas. 

But I get your point. If only I cared [at all] about DIII

Much apologies. I never played III, only saw the box and glimpses of previews.

Call me underdeveloped but, couldn't Blizzard
appease both Diablo 3 parties by adding a secondary color preset,
like similar to the ones that were in FarCry? (vivid, cold, etc.) or even a simple-as-dirt "Color
Saturation" bar option in video settings. If it's too colorful
for one's taste just lower it a bit and make it more gloomy..

Note:  you have seen but a scant few levels of the game.

If I had to pick Diablo II based on seeing the nightmare that is Lut Gholein, for example, I'd probably be upset too.  But who knows what else Blizzard has in mind.  I, for one, look forward to seeing how they graphically treat Hell / Heaven / wherever it is you're stomping around in Diablo III.

It's an interesting idea, but I think the petitioners are fretting more about Diablo III's cartoony digs -- not it's color pallet. Although they're certainly fretting about that as well.

I must be wrong then. I probably will not even buy Diablo 3 with they way they are changing it from Diablo 2. It just looks like World of Warsuck except top. I could even compare it to Mythos. It looks terrible and plays terrible. Screw linear gameplay.

I find it fascinating when people base their entire buying purchaes on 20 minutes of in-development gameplay.

Because, you know, Star Wars as a customizable card game is a novel concept.

Oh, Sony -- forever beating the dead horse with a lightsaber.

I like that, as part of their five year anniversary, they're at least giving back to the community -- you know, for money.
