I absolutely loved it. A lot more arcade-y and user friendly. I just like how they didn't make anything a huge pain in the ass. Unnecessary work for re-speccing or issues with mobility or running miles, or stamina.

I am in love with the fact there are only 6 active spells. This is one huge thing I hated about WoW. Have to have at least 40 buttons bound to be effective.

I played through with a friend and it's the most fun I've had on a video game in a long time.

Reminds me of old school Gauntlet with a lot more features. Just arcade-y enough with just enough character customization.


I love it so far.




And to whoever thinks it was easy, of course it was. It was the first act on the easiest difficulty. Give it a chance!

I only got the time in the open weekend to level the Demon Hunter, but after seeing every single class in youtube videos, I think I'm still set on using that class on release.

I think the visuals in the game are great, at first I wasn't thrilled at the switch to more cartoony graphics, but it's very well executed, and still holds the darkness that D1 and D2 excelled at.

The little modern additions like enemies climbing from forest areas, the depths of cracks in the earth, windows, etc, as well as the nice fun touch of the 'treasure goblin' have all been nice things to come across in the beta, but honestly, I'd be happy with this just being the exact same mechanics/engine as D2, just in a new story, but luckily, it has all that and more. I can't wait for May 15th.

Not overpriced when you have a friend working at Dell, mine cost the same as a comparable Clevo/Sager and comes with an OS and warranty.

Definitely overpriced when you can build it with (most of the time) better specs for a fraction of the cost.

Ok go find me a laptop with an ivy bridge i7 quad core and an AMD 7970M or better for a fraction of $1500...

In fact, do it and I'll buy one for you and one for me since in fantasy land that will still cost less than my Alienware order.

Diablo was my first online game on the computer, that and Mechwarrior 2.

Needless to say my wife and I both preordered Diablo 3.

EDIT: Just realized Ive had this signature on here for years.

I got my Alienware and have had nothing but problems with it so far. At this rate I may or may not be playing D3 on Tuesday night

That's what I get for buying a new system with brand new CPU and GPU stuff, all of the drivers are in their infancy and everything is kind of ....ed.

Not to be a dick...but did you buy an Alienware without personally much of anything about PC hardware and running a PC for gaming? I don't mean to insult your intelligence by any means, but I've heard of a fair few people doing that and almost literally burning their money away in the process.

Brand-new hardware would be expected to have those kinds of annoying issues though, patience may be a virtue until they stabilize the drivers.

EDIT: And on a side note, I just wanted to vent my frustration and say .... Starcraft II.

EDIT 2: by re-reading some of your posts, clearly you do.

Nah, it's really not that bad - more annoying than anything. I was hoping the ivy bridge cpu and 7970m gpu would magically work flawlessly on release but it turns out that it's going to take some time for the platform to mature. Totally normal and I would have just waited to make the purchase if it were not for the D3 release in 3 days.

I'm still contemplating returning it and going with a desktop but it's hard to judge performance with drivers so weak.

Within a month or so, they may have figured out your previously unstable hardware and tweaked the drivers so that CPU and GPU could be some of the best on the market for all we know.

And I'm not ashamed of Alienware. I bought one years ago as my introduction to PC gaming and the thing has served me very well. Still use the case with its many LEDs even though I've upgraded every other component at some point.
