    Installed the beta, this is my first time playing Diablo ever.
    It's kinda cool I guess, but I have such a hard time getting into games nowadays that I'll probably forget about it in a week, if not a day.

    You never played Diablo? ಠ_ಠ Get 10$ out, go buy D2 and Lord of Destruction, rush the campaign.

    I tried D2 but it's too dated for me at this point.

    Just downloaded and played the D3 beta for an hour and my PC runs it in a playable but not terribly satisfying way with every setting turned all of the way up. I'm actually pretty disappointed in the graphics, they don't look any better than WarCraft III to me.

    ^

    If this game had Diablo 2 graphics, it would be even better. I don't give a fuck about graphics.

    Half the charm of Blizzard games are their graphics. It would just look wrong if they skipped the slightly cartoonish look :2c:

    Really looking forward to this! Played the beta and loved it! My exam is on the same day or the day before the release :)

    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'm fine with cartoonish, I play WoW after all :lol:

    It just seemed very grainy and low-res to me despite having everything turned all of the way up.

    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.

    More than ten years ago I finished Inferno level with the Barbarian, so my choice is already made.

    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.

    :lol: 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.
