    Possibilty of Weapons

    Ok not the best Title in the world, anyway I was wondering that wouldn't it be awesome if Blizzard could get in deals with other companies to use their designs for weapons in Diablo 3.

    I personally would love to see a Two Handed insanely powerful Soul Reaver (legacy of Kain) for the Barbarian and a Lancer (Gears of War) for the Demon Hunter.

    SOUL REAVER would be awesome.

    What do you people think?

    I wouldn't put it past Blizzard to put some Legacy of Kain references in the game's items. I'm sure we'd see something.

    And they wouldn't need to make a deal with other companies - it's just good-natured fun ^^.

    Man, you seem to like Legacy of Kain more than Diablo 3 - this is the 2nd time I've seen you just talk about that game instead, even though D3's almost here haha :p.

    Agreed. I don't understand why people feel the need to ruin the grimdark feel of games like Diablo 3 with references and tributes to other games. If you ask me, borrowing weapon designs from other companies, permitted or not, is incredibly weak and detracts from the feel of the game's own universe.

    gears of war was a terrible game, references for that should be in equally terrible games.

    I don't mind this kinda thing if the weapons makes sense and the reference isn't too obvious. Otherwise I despise cross promotion in games.

    Aw come on man, to say that is doing great injustice to a Great game. But like always, to each his own.

    You have a point there, but its fun to see Easter eggs especially if you add something from another game.

    Haha, wouldn't it be great if the DH had a melee attack with the chainsaw. I can picture Champion packs becoming saw dust. HAHAHAHa.:D

    And besides, the DH has some skills that fires so rapidly, it makes the Lancer look sick in comparison, so I fail to see your point.

    Re: Possibilty of Weapons

    Truth be told I liked Blood omen 1 better than Diablo 1. Though the two games are totally different and can't be compared. But for me, Diablo is the BOMB but the Legacy of Kain series is a whole another dimension.
    According to me, a great storyline is the most crucial part of a game, a factor that Blizzard always neglects by second guessing itself. As for adding other companies things in a game, its an awesome thing to do, especially if you know what to add, like How they added Kratos in Mk9.


    And your right, I do love the legacy of Kain series more, Diablo 3 is a close third. :)

    OK people, Picture that in the Barbarians Hands. It makes all the other over the top weapons in the game look retarded.

    The flamberge looks similar in D3: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/flamberge

    I didn't play with the Legacy of Kain games, that's why I didn't get the reference. I don't mind it at all though. :)

    My quest for Flamberge begins.
    You didn't play the Legacy of Kain series, aw man you don't know what your missing. You want a cool game, Play Diablo 3. You want an experience of a lifetime, play LOK. You want your life to be complete, play both. LOL

    I may do just that. Some of my friends were big fans of LoK and I've heard good things about it.

    You don't see any issue with introducing a technological weapon into a dark fantasy game? Hmmm....
