    Julian Love Gametrailers video interview

    I don't think this has been posted yet. Julian Love (Lead Technical Artist) talks about art styles and gives some (new?) info on the Demon Hunter's "Shadow Beasts". They fly in and carpet-bomb an area.:cool:

    Seems like this video confirms that the zombie pillar(that you can see in this video when talking about a variation of Wall of Zombies) is a rune version of Wall of Zombies.

    If the randomization of the game areas comes off as Mr. Love mentioned, it could really be cool...I guess we'll see.

    By far one of the best interviews i'v see, really great gameplay in there too.

    This is the kind of thing that gets me watering at the mouth and wanting the game.

    Looking at his lack of sleep face and all the pictures of Diablo in the background, it is really assuring because you get the feeling that they are serious about D3.

    Here we are bickering at certain aspects of the game when people like Julian are working their *** off to make sure D3 turns out to be fantastic. Maybe we should just relax and have fun with the game when its finally out.

    And is it me or I find Jay Wilson also looks like he has been working long hours. Probably gorging on junk food to get more time in working out the game judging by his belly and just the overall look of his face. Oh and a certain Bashiok looks like he is under tremendous pressure and is cracking.

    I would guess they are all putting in upwards of 60 hours a week, more perhaps. The pressure to get the game done ASAP must be ridiculous. Tomorrow's call will only make it more intense, I imagine.

    Shadow beasts flying on a carpet??? What kind of stupid spell is that??? It reminded me of a Goblin from Spider Man movie.... As far as I know, DH hates demons and foes, why the **** she will summon them if all she wants is to get rid of a single demon in the world??? This is BS! Sometimes Blizzard comes up with such a stupid spells..... For example, Monk's bell spell that he summons is also a stupid spell...

    Heh they are not flying on a carpet, they CARPET BOMB certain area. Here is an example I found, around 0:30 or so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuS2Tz74y4I&feature=player_detailpage#t=21s

    Hmm I kinda like the idea of shadow beasts. Almost every class has somekind of summon (or do they all have?) so shadow beasts sounds cool for demon hunter.

    They don't fly on a carpet... they 'carpet bomb' an area. So basically just a long distance AoE spell which is cool. I'm happy with the Demon Hunter having some more demonic influenced stuff, it makes sense in the context of her character.

    Interviews with Julian almost always seem so lively and entertaining. He emanates an excitement and love for what he does and the Diablo series. Thanks for the find, fmulder!

    Can you prove that? No. Of course you can't disprove it either(tho I find it strange that the devs have to say that a skill is unrune when showcasing it for the first time, and then there is the fact that every skill they show cased was shown in its unrune state before any of its rune forms was shown), but I find it interesting that in the press event video we see the bell being used and it knockback some goats. To me this is saying that the skill in its base form is likely to be the bell.

    Now we have a confession on tape saying that they don't like a realistic art style. Diablo 3 had no chance from the beginning. ;)

    Re: Julian Love Gametrailers video interview

    This is really hard for me. Being excited for a sequel to a game that you absolutely adored in your youth, then seeing it raped before your eyes. If you have seen that south park episode with george lucas and steven king, then this would be all too familiar to you. Its really disheartening, especially for how excited and hopeful ive been in the combat system, yet it wont feel like a diablo game with the direction theyre going.

    In the interview, Julian had an explicit inquisitive tone in his voice, almost as if seeking approval from the fans on the choice of increasing the contrast and color of the art style. He even makes a direct reference to WoW, as if they used that as a template to design every character and spell in this game.

    I for one am done with this game until they make some drastic changes.

    I still feel like they shouldn't have taken this goofy route for d3. Guess we'll see how fun it is
