    I remeber playing a demo of a Diablo styled Rpg about a year or 2 ago except now i have forgotten its name x.x; sorry if im sounding a bit vague but i was just wondering if someone could help remind me of what the game was called,

    it was had very good 3D grahics, (a bit better then dungeon siege 2)
    You started off in a winter village, and it was an Rpg where NPC could join your team and assist you.

    sorry again if this is a bit vague but if anyone has an idea of what game this might be it would be greatly appriciated :eek:

    I've never played it myself but it could be Neverwinter Nights. It's one of the few semi-recent RPGs that I've not played. If not that, then I can't help I'm afraid.

    no i think this game is called Icewind Dale. Thats exactly as it starts off although it is fairly old by now, so perhaps Neverwinter nights is it, but that game didn't start in the winter did it (that was a good game).

    a few of my buddies are telling me that Guild Wars is what Diablo3 would look like if they had made one. its made by the guys that made Diablo1&2/Starcraft. Its pretty cool. check it out. Free online play with purchase of the 40-50 USD game.

    NWN is full 3d, diablo is 2d sprites.

    THe only diablo style games I can think of are

    diablo, diablo2, sacred, divinity series, baldurs gate 1, 2, icewind dale, planescape torment.

    These are all united in their isometric top-down view.

    If you want diablo style game ply you are limited to diablo and sacred from that list.

    If anyone knows of any others plug them in :D

    dungeon siege was cool, I wish I had a bit of time to play the sequel.

    Did you ever play the expansion Legends of Aranna? That was pretty cool at the time, I seem to remember. Though I don't recall finishing it strangely enough... :suprised:

    Blizzard has made no comment, but they have been heavily searching for programmers recently... if you look at the link closely you will see the Orchestra the man claimed to work for did make the sound tracks for Diablo II

    Makes you wonder...
