I was lucky enough to get a beta key before the first stress test. So far, been having a good time with this. The newest iteration, in addition to upping the challenge factor (go ahead, read the patch notes) actually lets you zoom up close to your character, which works really well for showing off the gear (some of whose designs are pretty interesting).

How much does it cost? It's intended to be free-to-play when it hits open beta, with the microtransactions being concerned purely with aesthetics or convenience. This said, you can donate to the project to guarantee closed beta access (and at higher levels get some real-world swag).

It's basically D2 with better graphics and improved mechanics (since if you ever try to play D2 today you'd notice you get headaches--at least that's how it is for me)
Not a bad way to sum it up; the skill systems are very reminiscent of FF7 (in terms of the active skills) and FFX (just put peepers on the passive skill 'web' and you'll see what I mean).

Given what it is said in the Guide Book, each Act is at least as long as those from D2. Might be longer though.

Ah, I read something a hour ago about the acts being equally long as the first two acts in Diablo 2 or longer.

Who knows, the length of #2 never bothered me, the real thing is becoming a bad ass and gear hunting.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Shit happens.

Kick ass.

Save the world.

Wait for the expansion for the next world-threatening event.

Cheers.

Meanwhile, shattered by the revelation of who is the current Lord Of Terror, a small part of the Internet had now began worshipping Diablo for the same reason why another part of the Internet is currently paying homage to the latest incarnation of the King In Yellow.

While I do not know what the spoilers actually entail... a part of me wants Diablo III to be modable (I wish) just so we can have a Nyaruko-san Mod, where the Act Bosses are all cute, adorable killer lolis

And the ultimate weapon against them will be the rare item "Mahiro's Trident"

*RUNS*

My brother ordered one for me on Amazon, but he won't be able to bring the disc to me anytime soon. Is it possible for him to unbox the game, give me the code (or something along the line) and I can play the game?

I believe that CD-key/code is the only important thing in the box that you need to play the game.

The game itself can be downloaded and install from diablo 3 site with Bizzard account.

It's been so long since the last Diablo game that at this point, I'll just wing it when it comes to plot in DIII.

The pains of being young and foolish in the days, where I cared little for remembering storylines in games.

The game will allow to install if I remember at 14may near everning...but the servers will be turned ON like I said above at 00:01 (europe time).... so people will be able to enter the game only at that time.... till that servers are offline... and the game protection wont allow to install it as it requires some activation key that is send from servers (kinda like what happened with BF3 no play before a known date ^^)

so no worries no one is playing the full game even if they got their pre-order...


personaly I'm kinda angry that the close beta testers are able to play some more beta.. but other people like me cant ;/ since it would be a good time killer with all his waiting.... I cant play any other game till that 15may...
Wait... I'm a bit confused here. So you need internet to install it. But do you need internet to play it? Can you install it into more than one computer?

As mentioned before, i'm currently out of touch with modern Pc games. Have been only playing online and console games the past several years

Just think of it as a typical MMORPG game without the sub and you ll get the idea quickly.

If you aren't familiar with those,

- I don't have the physical copy but i think it will connect online to validate before letting you install. You ll most likely need to install a small patch before it can start as well.
- You need internet connection to play it (even solo).
- The client itself can installed to multiple pc but your cdkey can only be tied to one account.

Installation would be open for the American servers 8:01am PDT (11:01am EST). You will also get a chance to download the day0 patch.

Design of that other dude in the video sure looks like the Lich King. PRETTY sure you'll end up fighting him and his helmet is loot.
