    no one cares if you play it TMM. You and your elitist "true betas." Why even bother posting the story if all you are going to do is whine/troll about how much you aren't going to be playing it.

    What I can't state an opinion unless its a popular one?

    Exactly. News is news. My opinion is mine. I would never post my personal opinion in a new article. That's retarded and immature.

    No doubt, after this weekend is over, I'll probably play through D2 again waiting for the 15th.

    What do you think we're dealing with here? This is going to be a "beta," in the same sense that the BF3 open beta was a "beta." Prepare to be told to "shut up and sit down because this is a three week old build and the developers are already aware of all of the issues." And then be prepared to still have that exact same problem three months after release.

    I must admit, watching zombies fly realy far from your blows is satisfying.

    This is going to be the perfect game for my girlfriend and I. Can't wait ^^

    We were originally going to buy Res Evil: Operation Raccoon City to get our coop fix, but this is 1000000000x better.

    After 2 days of playing Diablo 3. I have to say Runic Game's Torchlight was more refreshing.
    There are so many annoying things that are conservatively retained from previous Diablos.
    The item management is one, It does not even sort itself out, it still has a 1 and 2 slot system. The items are not clearly highlighted when dropped, and you can't manually highlight it.
    The Torchlight pet system is so much cooler as you can ask the pet to go back to town and sell items while you continue to charge into enemy territory.
    The theme is still dark and quite difficult to see. Why? I know it is meant to be "EVIL" but no need to hide so much. Torchlight has the same theme but they made it look more refreshing.
    The camera is completely restricted! WHY? The way they've restricted the camera, it is no different from a 2D scrolling game. I think this is the most unforgivable restriction.
    Why multiplay coop is restricted to a max of 4 players only?

    Those complaints aside. The skill tree has been overhauled, now there is no need to commit into a skill as you can swap around anytime. This is a great thing.
    My fav character is the monk. Great hands on attack, flash like instant travel and healing ability.
    Finally, Blizzard deliberately limit the leveling up to 13. Kinda expected.

    The beta is not even the tip of the iceberg. So much more to see, hardcore mode, a lot more kinds of items, mobs, skills...

    This is one of the upsides imo. Why would you want to move around the camera all the time?

    I can definitively see that you are NOT an old school Diablo player...The game graphics so far is EXACTLY how a Diablo game should be , to bad they ruined the nice skill tree from D2...

    Torchlight 2. All. Day. Long.

    We'll ignore all the previously posted issues with Blizz and D3.
