I'm not a big gamer, but this is one of the few titles that I anticipate the release of. I read a 2011 release date? That's kind of far off... :/
Looking at some screen shots, it looks like with the new graphics engine it's turned more cartoon looking and polished, kind of like WoW seems to be (don't play the game, but have seen it played). I hope it isn't too drastic of a change though. I really like the dark and grimy feel of DII.
