I am not sold yet... I played for a bit but it wasn't enough to pull me away from Everquest. IMO they waited waaaaay too long for a 3rd installment. From what I've seen GW2 is the game worth waiting for.

For those not convinced it is worth the money, realize you only played about a third of the first act. D2 was painful the first 20 levels if you started from scratch and had no friends to rush or gear you. I found the first 13 levels to be much more enjoyable in D3.

I felt like I became a wrecking machine very quickly even with the small sample size of abilities I had. I love how the Monk and Barb play. Debating which to roll first on release. The Demon Hunter was painful to play at first but once I got decent 1-handed bows in each hand and a few levels it was much more fun to play.

Shared currency across your account is great and you can xfer a couple items at a time with out having to hope a game stays open like in D2.

Being able to join a friends game from your character selection screen just by clicking there name is awesome to me.

Aaahhh I could go on. I am still excited for this game. GW2 and D3 will be taking all my time in the coming months/years and I am OK with that.

haha no freaking kidding. It's like 95% of everyone who played Diablo completely forgot what it was all about. I turned it on for about 30 minutes last night as that was all I had time for, initial impressions were very good. The gui looked clean but I didn't really have time to nitpick it much. The overall style was right at home compared to Diablo 2, though I did feel the starting area was much less open and "explorable" compared to Diablo 2. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I did feel it as a little bit to compact. I would say the instant gratification of this game was very pleasing to me as well, I absolutely hate being forced to watch a terrible cinematic for 30 minutes before starting a game (looking at you skyrim).

RAGE still cant get it to work. Finally got one error to quit popping up, to have another now come up. I am going to blame it on my satellite internet, I think im getting time-out errors. Which happens a lot. Its sad when 56k is recommend for gaming over satellite internet.

Guess I will just wait til May 15th to play this game. After waiting 10 freaking years, whats another month?? /rant

Sorry for that. Going to buy the normal version of the game on release, was going to buy the CE, but not now

No, I was stating that it wasn't interesting enough to play... there was no comparison. If you want a comparison just put it on the same shelf as every other smash n'grab game out there because aside from the modern look I saw nothing to draw me in. Now because you seem to miss the obvious I will also state that I know it's only beta. I'll spare you the facepalm.

At the end of the day, playing through with my GF was pretty fun for the both of us. How much depth and replayability it has is to be seen still, but I feel good about my pre-order. Worst case scenario is it'll only be good for a playthrough of two different characters, which would still be worth the price.

Don't let a beta stress test affect your purchase. They purposely pushed the servers to the edge to get accurate results. Get the CE, the wings and dyes are awesome.

Anyone else finish the beta SUPER quickly?

I maxed out the barbarian and managed to spend a good 30-40k training for crafting stuff. Got pretty much everything I could get then leveld the rest of the classes to 13
