Diablo 3

Discussion in 'Upcoming Games Discussion' started by Makersmarx, 23 Apr 2012.


  1. Anyone get in on this beta over the weekend? Was thinking of buying the WoW annual pass, and Diablo 3 is included in the purchase.

    I played through it for a bit, servers were up and down a lot over the weekend.. Have to say, it brought back memories :)

    In the end, it's like SC2, same experience, updated graphics and engine.. Overall though, if you were familiar with the first, this one will ring true with the same experience.. I heard some people saying they didn't like it, but to each their own, maybe expectations were higher than they should have been, who knows..

    I was afraid they were going to bend Diablo too close to WoW, make it all about DPS and grinding; but that was unfounded in the end.. It's still a good classic dungeon crawl, and it would be fun to play with others.. Unlike SC2 which is annoying to play with others as you get zerged by 400 of the same unit force multiplier until you're dead :p

    I liked it. It brought back a lot of the old Diablo feelings I loved about the original.. I'll be picking it up for sure.. :D

    If it is anything like the original Diablo, it is worth the 50 bucks to play. The original was one of the best early dungeon crawls there was, and I still have very fond memories of playing it with Full Otto and Ground Chuk.
     
  4. Excellent, thanks for the review ASP. I think I'll just get the WoW annual pass tonight then since Diablo is included with the purchase. Kill two birds with one stone since I cant put the WoW pipe down.

    Mani, do you plan on playing? Anyone else from the clan gonna play?

    I would like to try it, depending on how it is. I have plenty of games on my wall of shame and don't need to dump more money into that edifice. :lol:

    I think in the end, it'll be a good time as a single player distraction, and for the odd CDL multiplayer questing session.. So I'll definitely be up for playing in the future.. :D

    The auction house perplexes me a bit, but I figure if I'm just playing by myself or with you guys, then it really doesn't matter..

    I'll be playing it for sure, however, my main worry comes from the fact that at no point this weekend was I able to just log in and play (even when the servers were supposedly up). It either took a few tries to get logged in or a few attempts to get the game to actually start. I know I know it was a stress test, but I just hope they learned all that they needed from it, because come release I will rage like no other if I am unable to play. This isn't like wow where they can add a few days onto your account if the servers are down..... I just have a bad feeling that launch is not going to go very smooth and good old Blizzard will be all "SORRIES!!!!! :(:(:( were working on it should be up "soon"".

    That said, I'm all about the Witch Doctor and the Barbarian. Wish the beta wasn't so short and easy, but it was a nice taste of whats to come.
     
  9. Oh how I know this feeling... :rofl:

    That being said I pre-ordered this and will be playing :)
     
  10. I will play it as well.
     
  11. I got the wow pass a long time ago so been waiting patiently for this. Got into beta a while back and it played well then when not being stressed. Played all the classes through the first story arc. I think they did a very good job on the feel of the story.
     
  12. I'm looking forward to it myself, its been a long while in the making lol so not much they can do wrong IMO. Dal have you gotten in on the MOP beta yet? I paid for my annual, but will have to wait a bit I'm sure to get in.
     
  13. I got the invite but haven't downloaded it yet. Might try it this week.
     
  14. I hear such great things about Diablo II from one of my modding friends, not so much about Diablo III...
     
  15. I may be canceling my pre-order of D3. Just found out about the internet requirements for it and that's kinda a deal breaker for me. I probably should have known about it before now but it slipped my mind to even consider.... Really a buzzkill.

    Installed this morning. Looks really good in the five minutes I ran around this morning before work. :lol:

    I am really in the mood for an old fashioned dungeon crawl. Kassa and I are going to log in tonight and kills us some nasties!

    I'll be on tonight as well..

    Also, don't be surprised if there's some frustration with their login servers, it's launch day and (surprise!!!) Blizzard isn't prepared...

    You can thank their "must always be connected" idiocy for that..

    Made a wizard btw, what did you and Kassa make (or will make) Mani?
