This exclusive Boing-Boing Gadgets preview gallery of D&D Insider is continuing that trend. This looks only incrementally better than the crappy demo shots they had at the Gen Con announcement last year. They have so far to go, and so little time in which to traverse the distance.
The real shame is this: because they are trying to make money off the computer tools associated with Dungeons and Dragons, they are much more likely to go and shut down any third-party tool makers. HeroForge 4th Ed? Much more likely to get sued out of existence than the 3rd Ed version. The PCGen data files D&D and all the add-on books? Completely out the window (as we've known since last summer when WoTC rescinded the license).
Reverting to a single legal source for this software is going to throw D&D computer aids back to the stone ages. All in the name of some crappy 3d animation that is completely unnecessary to the game.
