Been playing the ladder reset for a while now. Got a level 38 fire sorc, just found some hotspur boots that I'm trying to trade at JSP. smile.gif

Edit -

A third TV commercial although most of the scenes seem to be from the previous ones and Bashiok is hinting that something may happen tonight at midnight (PDT)...

Thank you very much for the kind words. I have been a long time lurker here, but I seldom post. There are very few things in this world that could keep me from playing D3. I have been waiting for this game since back during my days of playing D2 nonstop. My friends and I would always discuss the possibilities of D3....storyline, characters, graphics, release date, enemies, items, etc. I think that in a nutshell is what has left me questioning some of the directions D3 has gone. Not necessariy disagreeing with, but just questioning and waiting to see how it turns out. Kind of like when reading a book, the picture and description you have in your head may differ greatly from the way I perceive it. I think I just overthought and overanticipated it.

No videos, but numerous hours watching friends playing the game before I actually joined in. Once I did, I was hooked.
I knew very little about the game and storyline behind it before actually playing it.
No pre-made builds when I started it. I learned as I went, and through trial and error got better. When pre-made builds started becoming more prevalent, I did tweak and remake characters to take advantage of them, but I still had success and fun with builds I had done prior to the cookie cutters.

Part of the whole experience is entering into the game without knowing everything about it. Fear, fear of the unknown, the emotions you get from the music, and enemies that apear out of no where

I could not agree more with you more eternallydead. I TRIED to minimize the research done into D3. I only took part in the Beta during the stress test weekend, and even then it was at the request of my other party members.

My initial reactions were very positive. The physics and knockback as you mentioned, and also destructible areas, Blacksmith (and eventually Mystic & Jeweler) , all of the mini quests, kill streaks, and even achievements (which I wasn't really too hot on for THIS game) were all very impressive and appreciated additions. The overall look and attention to detail in the game is stunning and I think that once we get into later Acts and areas, that the TRUE feel of Diablo will show itself. I think that as far as the Beta test, with such a small test area to explore it doesn't give a truly accurate representation of the game, and I eagerly await exploring the rest of the world of Sanctuary.

You will not feel that same way playing D2 now, because you know even more about it, and it is very familiar.

This is the ONLY part I disagree with you on, in certain cases.

When I pop in D2 to actually PLAY the gamefor the sake of playing the game, and not solely for MFing or rushing,I do not feel that way. Starting over from scratch. Walking (NOT being rushed) through the respective acts, then difficulties. Running with the gear you FIND, not the gear you have saved up, bought, or traded for. LISTENING to the story instead of just closing the dialouge boxes. Hearing the music and the feelings it brings. (I don't do that often, but when I do, it is a great experience.)

THAT is Diablo to me.

I hope Diablo 3 exudes the same atmosphere and elicits the same responses and feelings that D2 did. Even with any reservations I have, they will not stop me from playing the game and immersing myself in the world of Sanctuary for hopefully another decade. thumb.gif

True, but I meant the same feeling you had from putting the D1 / D2 disks in for the first time and playing your character. I have made a new character on the ladder reset, D2 is deffinately still fun, but those first feelings of fear of the unknown are not present. It could be that way for normal - hell for us in D3. I certainly have learned a lot about the strategy and gained an art for designing builds, but I think (and hope) that fear is shoved back into us in inferno.

*slight spoiler discussing a random champions ability, no storyline / important data mentioned* (safe for most unless you don't even want to know about possible random monster abilities in inferno) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One example is in a video with the designers, they mention the champion mobs will have different random abilites, one of them is the ability to cast a huge wall. The designers had a group of 4 when they came across a large pack of enemies as they realize they may die, they start to run... then *BLAM* a huge wall pops up and blocks their escape. Needless to say they were slaughtered, and go on to discuss how they make the abilities, but they get a whole different feeling when they are actually used

I heard them discuss that in the 5th developer diary. Great stuff! thumb.gif

Just so you know, mystic was pulled from the game. Expect to see her back in the expansion, however.
