Its awesome to know there will be more progress to made as far as PvE goes "months" after I have the game. Hopefully by the time people start beating inferno PvP will become available.
And as far as the melee vs ranges character discussion goes, I'd argue that the ranged characters would die faster. There are monsters with ranged attacks too, ya know and of course ranged heroes generally have less life and defense. Its not like the barb and monk will take 100% of the damage throughout the game. smile.gif

Ranged will die super fast, but they also can kite all day long unlike melee. Sit there firing hungering arrows off the screen for 10 minutes. I'm sure stuff will die without you even being touched redface.gif

He's pretty much the only one we've gotten info about 'Inferno' from)
Your best bet would be to go to your local gamestop and preorder the CE. Go there at midnight and pick it up thumb.gif


Ah yea, guess I forgot to mention every gamestop in a 25 mile radius is sold out of the preorders. We shall see which path I choose. I called Gamestop and they said they normally have people cancel their CE orders on games and have some available on launch.. but I dunno about this game. I am thinking about going to a 24 hour Walmart 10 miles away to try my luck picking up the CE then.

Gotcha. Good luck with that, I try to stay away from Walmart at all costs, let alone at midnight tongue.gif

Here's a video from GDC with Christian Lichtner talking about the art of D3. I'm not artist or designer, but I even enjoyed this.

It's cool to hear about why they chose some of the art decision they did, such as the softer, cartoonish graphics as opposed to photo realistic.

true. thats what you have meat shields for. have the enemies focus on the melee characters while the ranged unload on them.

What if you join a game that is all ranged?

I've had it happen to me.

Being the only melee character in a game with potion cool downs...is tough. tongue.gif

Balancing system?

I don't see why they would; you're free to join any game you want with your friends, so if all your friends go ranged, yeha. tongue.gif
