post #2451 of 29767
Hey guys I got a question. I have on my barb a sword and an axe that have dps of 8.5 and 9. The attack speed is pretty fast. But when I equip a two-hand axe that has 12.5 dps I get half the attack speed and yet more damage. Shouldn't the 2 one handers with a combined 17.5 dps be better?

All I have to say in the first few minutes is WOW ... the graphics in this game are seriously terrible-looking, esp. relative to the load put on the GPU.

PoE beta is honest like 3x better, visually ... and they're probably operating on like 1/100 the budget.

No joke, this Beta looks like something from 2006 ... i.e. barely any better than Titan Quest ... everything looks so blurry and low-res (of course I have all options maxed out in game, and have AO and 8xTRSSAA forced in the driver), and the in-game AA actually makes it look worse in terms of blurriness.

It'll actually run up to 70% on both my GPU's (gtx470 SLI) and that's about where most of Crysis 2 runs my GPU's, completely maxed in DX11.

I'm sitting here going REALLY? This looks like it should be using like 20%, tops, with my cards occasionally down-clocking to low-power 3d.

The fact that this much usage happens with a static camera and such poor IQ is borderline offensive.

Hopefully either the gameplay gets awesome, OR the beta has the graphics dialed WAY down ... cause my first impression is that looks awful. I'm only a 15 minutes into it but so far I am disappoint. And now battlenet is down. My excitement for this title is plummeting by the second.

Oh, and how about SAVING OUR FREAKING PASSWORD?!?

Finally made it in, got disconnected though after an hour. I have to say not too shabby. Good music, good sfx, good sound effects. My only complaint is that in Titan Quest you could still issue move commands with the mouse with the map up on the main screen. They don't have that in Diablo 3, it's very nice to have.

Since Blizzard games have always been about graphics rolleyes.gif

If you play games for graphics don't bother with Diablo 3. The game is fun as heck to play. Find some friends to run through the beta with and see if you don't have fun.

There are in game sigils that you can make for each one of your characters. Other than that not that I am aware of.

Hopefully the gameplay gets awesome cause my first impression is that looks awful. I'm only a 15 minutes into it but so far I am disappoint.

You seem to be expecting cutting-edge graphics from Blizzard, as do a bunch of people here at OCN, even though they have never been known for having them. Blizzard have never, ever, released a game that completely blew people away visually. It is all about the gameplay and depth that the game gives you.

I feel saddened that you would take that much stock into the game's visuals. Which in fact look amazing in comparison to its predecessor in my (and most fans of the series) opinion. I have no idea what constitutes it as being "blurry" either.

lets see...i was able to log in and bring my wizard upto level 4 before they brought the server down for maintenance....now i cant for the life of me log back in...what is the point of having a public stress test if you dont have the server capacity for the public to begin with??

They want it as smooth as possible for release date, just like a beta test should go. Unlike a the bf3 beta test where it was just to generate hype this is to tweak issues and fix them before release. Id rather have beta downtimes apposed to release downtimes.

Don't get me wrong, how 'cutting edge' it looks is not that important to me, if the gameplay is awesome, that's what matters to me the most.

But when the last game you played of this nature was PoE, a game made by a developer w/way less $ than Blizzard, you tend to expect this title to at least match up with it's visuals. And it really does not. Not EVEN.

And I just fired up Dungeon Siege 3, another game that disappointed me with it's graphics nearly 1.5 years ago, and even this graphics clunker looks very noticeably better than D3 ... and it does so with about 1/2 the gpu usage, 8xMSAA, and a camera that can circle the player 360 degrees.

My biggest annoyance here is seeing a gpu usage level that really absurd for how mediocre the game looks. When I turn on AO in D3, it's actually giving me comparable usage to the usage I get from large parts of Crysis 2 (not all of it, mind you), almost entirely maxed out in DX11. And I don't think I have to really explain how the graphics compare to C2, do I? Not to mention it's a fixed camera, and it's still using this kind of resources?

Like, with the usage I'm seeing, I'd guess that a GTX470 or GTX560ti couldn't max out this game with AO and hold a steady 60fps ... It just doesn't seem right at all, based on how it looks. I just that disappointing wink.gif

This type of concern may seem strange to many people, but I'll tell ya, when you live in the desert and run a $350 AC bill every month during the summer ... having a game heat your room up w/o looking totally awesome creates a special kind of frustration tongue.gif
