I doubt the graphics are going to change at all by release. Sc2's didn't. If they were going to do something, they would add a higher resolution texture set. You are highly unlikely to see normal mapping this late into the game if it isn't already there. It isn't present on any of their media and normal mapping is no small feature to add last-minute. If they do indeed add it by release it would be colossal.

As for my video, it has been processing on youtube for over 12 years and SD is still not yet available. I don't think youtube likes it.

You agree that the game will ship with the option of "Anti-aliasing" and a dropdown menu of "None" only being available? It's times like this being a voluntary subordinate to someone else's opinions makes said individual appear to be lacking intelligence. Rethink what you just said, honestly.

SC2 went into beta as a largely complete game, D3 not so much.

I have to re-upload the entire 4gb thing since it's pretty obvious the processing failed at this point. The upload is nearly done, then it has to process, and russian roulette plays once more.

I find it curious that the D3 beta seems to have graphic options like AA disabled. Either Blizzard is making a drastic break from the pack, or there's a reason for it. My guess is either they were having some issues with it and so closed it off with police tape for the time being; or, being so early in beta, they are taking a scientific approach of establishing a working control group before enabling visual features that may cause lag and other issues on lesser machines. In other words, they want everyone to be playing at the same settings, so any lag or issues that do happen have less possible causes.

Or, maybe they want the game to look terrible so all you beta players don't get tired of the game in beta and forego buying retail. =oP

Probably just issues they were having.

Sc2 doesn't support AA at all. I'm surprised they are even trying to put AA into d3.

After nearly an entire day of processing the SD quality of the first upload suddenly became available, and has been added to the OP.

Excellent. I look forward the coverage regarding pacts and treatises with demons. I heard this time with high charisma you can persuade Belial to underfund hell army logistics. Last time I tried that on Diablo 2, there was a conversation grid bug that kept afecting Baal's reaction stat.

I've added a 2 hour Monk/WD Duo I did last night with Lavarinth to the OP. We share our thoughts of the game as we go through the beta content.

Even though I've been playing the beta myself, I've still been enjoying watching your coverage of it, Mesk. :D

Sometimes I think Lavarinth is so shy. It's cute.

Can I play with you guys sometime? I've got a Wizard and Monk that still need to hit the level cap of 13.

Sure! Or we can make new chars or whatever works.

Hitting level 13 actually takes freaking forever it seems. Only Leoric and his event give any shred of experience at all post level 10.
