    Default Diablo 3

    So yeah, only 6 more days...I can't wait. It's all I can think about.

    I played the open beta a couple weekends ago and it was fantastic. I will assume anyone who is interested here also played it.
    What did you guys think? I really liked all the classes, which I was surprised at. Also the class I thought I would like the least, turned out to be the one I liked the most. The witch doctor. I will probably make a WD my main character.
    What are you guys going to be playing as?

    I'm also really looking forward to see what happens storywise, and how everything ends up going down...
    For those who haven't played the previous Diablos, here's a video that sums up the story nicely.


    Here's a really indepth lore video if you want to go all out.

    Here's a video for general gameplay, for those who live under a rock.


    It may look kinda tame playing solo but the real fun is playing as a party, then shit gets hectic.
    Also, the multiple difficulty settings sound great fun. Different loot drops, item models, item stats obviously, and sounds like an actual challenge. Supposedly even the Blizzard testing team can't complete it on inferno.

    I'm tempted to call in sick on Wednesday.

    That last video is pretty old and isn't a clear representation of the game.

    To be honest, I was interested from the start, but reading some things I was thinking maybe, Meh. But then after playing some more beta, suprisingly, I could not wait to keep leveling up and getting more skills. I might need to wait till June or something, I'd like to pick it up around $40 (I doubt it'll drop for a quick sale), but then I need to take care of finals first. Still, I plan to play this, and play it a lot.

    You know starcraft 2 is still above 40 bucks right? Came out nearly 2 years ago and it's just starting to get lower prices. Good luck finding a deal on a new Blizzard game.

    i've got it sitting dormant waiting on my computer for the goddamn arbitrary may 15th deadline (yeah, like they're putting it off to make major updates and not just because that's when they're delivering physical copies to stores).

    i'm less excited about it than before. i'm far, far more excited about GW2. i'll play it quite a bit, but not quite as fanatically as others.

    crappoo just buy it now. if the replay value is anything like d2 you'll get at least a few years (on and off) of fun out of it.

    Also sycld there's nothing arbitrary about May 15th (happy bday nermy)

    Oh I know, I got nothing against buying games for $60. Games usually drop to $40 within the first 2 weeks of their release (it goes back up to $60), but being a Blizzard game, I don't see that coming. The prices hardly ever drop, but still, FINALS FIRST!

    I think the rune/lack of spell variety was a turn off, but I had fun with the beta.

    Also happy early birthday nermy, you won't be checking this thread on May 15th I assume, except probably to say "OMG I LOVE THIS GAME", if that's what you were trying to say.

    I'll be doing Demon Hunter and Wizard, they seem to be the most viable for Inferno.

    I probably won't play much of the GWII stress test. Oh well.

    I'll probably go Demon Hunter or Wizard also.

    The Witch Doctor is such a fucked class. I hope they fix it eventually.

    WD just doesn't look that fun =(. I know I should try it before I judge, but from the videos it didn't look like my kind of character. Rolling with the Wizard, probably then Monk, Demon Hunter, Barbarian, and then WD

    Well Necromancer didn't seem like that much fun in D2 until I rolled one and it was a good time.

    I didn't think it was my kinda class either, but I was wrong lol.
    It is awesome fun, imo it is the most fun class. Throwing pots of spiders about, pet dogs, throwing toads about....where's the lack of fun?

    Yeah I noticed lots of tossing :P. That and I don't really like summoning, but oh well. I'll get to it one day. I just like how the Wizard has arcane magic and it regenerates quickly, it feels like a standard character to me. Barb/Monk are reverse kinda (I think at least), attack to build up the source of energy they use to use their spells. WD has mana but slow recovery, and then the demon hunter has 2 sources.. which is interesting, I never got to try him (though I don't like traps very much either :P)

    To be fair the Demon Hunter really doesn't have much of a trap theme. Only caltrops and spike trap really act like traps, though it still says incorrectly that traps are a major theme of the class in the out-dated class overview on the official site. It's more about arrows, explosives, evasion, and a handful of tricks to round out the arsenal.

    Just wondering, does anyone think it's possible for me to download the client off my friend's account? I mean I'm going to be using my own account once I buy the game anyways. I should be able to right? That way I don't have to wait and I can start downloading right away :P.

    (Plus I wonder if I can download while he is playing)

    Nevermind, Just realized there is a starter edition that I can use to get me started. (goes up to the beta). At this point I might as well buy it..

    I've tried Diablo 3, but I think I like Torchlight 2 more. Also, it's cheaper.
    Still Alive, maybe.

    Are you saying you've played the TL2 beta? I want to get it, but I'm spending too much cash on games...


    From what I've heard, there are major balance issues in harder difficulty levels, namely that melee classes lack the durability to survive. Anyone else confirm/deny this? I've only started playing now.
