I always loved blizzards CGI shorts or trailers during gameplay.
"I love you sarge"
The "Chirp" at the end really ruined the mood there.
Poor voiceacting, thin to non-existing story, mediocre animation, just a horde of units marching and then a few of them dying to the angels that just stand there and swish swoosh every now and then and show off their moves.
The whole story is just that the angels fight some units then the goldie angel rushes to diablo, gets a duel with him, and right when he is about to lose the rest of the angels come to the rescue and hooray Diablo is captured in 5 seconds but then goldie is immature and lets his emotions go overhand and kill Diablo without anyone stopping him despite them telling him not to do so (these guys captured Diablo in 5 seconds and can't even stop one of their guys from splitting him in two?!).
It's pretty poor and definitely not something I would expect from Blizzard. (and yes I know they didn't actually make it, but they're the ones that made the story and decided to outsource it)
Blizzard has been dropping the ball in the story department ever since WoW came out.
I like it. It will explain the jist of the story to people that have not played through the previous games.
I really liked the art style and animation quality.
Just two words: "Fucking Amazing"
I could watch this every week
I thought it was okay. Mildly entertaining, but not fantastic. I think they just want to keep people hyped.
Horrible, personal opinion.
Interesting cartoon, has a very Heavy-Metal vibe to it; but I prefer their CGI work.
Not as weird as you'd expect from Peter Chung
That was quite horrible in my opinion, definitely below Blizzards usual standards, I hope they're not half-assing Diablo 3 like they did this video.
There was hardly any "Story" to it let alone it being a backstory, just a bunch of fighting with a little dialogue.
Animation studio Titmouse
Came into this thread expecting Tom Hanks
they guy the voice the angel of valor sound like dante in the dante inferno cartoon movie. I wish they make the movie out of it.
there is also footage of imperius attacking tyrael directly in a trailer, it's obvious what's going to happen and it's obvious what the trailer is intended for.
imperius is going to be turned into wrath (hint: name of the movie)
I think this is relevant as like parket said it just introduces them cause we only seen what 3 angels in the whole diablo game while millions of daemons but this is how it goes:
"...And, at the End of Days, Wisdom shall be lost
as Justice falls upon the world* of men.
Valor shall turn to Wrath-
and all Hope will be swallowed by Despair.
Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all-
as Fate lies shattered forever."
each connecting to an angel and in the lore archangel of wisdom inside him has the aspect of death
