    not to mention that the difficulty scales up massively on replays on harder difficulty settings, hence it takes longer.


    the beta was short and easy, since it was a connection/server/bug fix test. it wasnt meant to entertain us for hours upon hours.

    definitely not. and the more i can make myself look at it as it's own game and not the sequel i've wanted for a decade, the more i like it.
    I think my final opinion is going to be that they simplified it a little too much. I appreciate the streamlining but some things should be a little more in depth imo.

    that being said i don't see hundreds of hours being a problem :)

    Yeah if you look at it as being over a decade of a wait for any game, no matter how good it is, it most likely will be disappointing. Like I said, what I personally do with any game to start, all I do is just sit down and play and say "is this fun to me?". Once I answer that question then I dig into the game deeper, but with the beta my thought processes hasn't gone beyond that since there isn't too much to judge.

    I agree it's been simplified a bit, before I played that was a very upsetting thing for me, but to play the Barb and see how much more dynamic he feels, it made me happy to see that.

    I see you as the barb for sure, though i'd like to see how you handle the witch doctor. mostly indirect damage it can be frustrating imo.
    everything should be pretty equal between classes, it's the gear that matters.

    yep. no mf is intrinsic to any character, and they are all equally able to kill things if used properly, so it's only about what you want to play.

    at first i was upset about some of the changes, but it really should be a great game in later levels. and they really wanted it to be all about being able to play your style, whatever that is - and be rewarded equally as well as everyone else. which i think is really cool, considering i hated the way you were "supposed" to play d2.

    specs won't open atm for some reason, but it's not a system buster by any means. they want as many people to play as possible, it is actually very low-end in requirements.

    Recommended System Requirements
    WINDOWS
    Windows® Vista/7 (latest service packs)
    Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5600+ 2.8 GHz
    2 GB RAM
    NVIDIA® GeForce® 260 or ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 or better

    MAC
    Mac® OS X 10.7.x or newer
    Intel® Core 2 Duo
    2 GB RAM
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M or ATI Radeon™ HD 4670 or better

    and those are recommended, not minimum.

    You're more than fine, I'm surprised to hear that you hadn't even touched D1.

    Reverse, TQ is like Diablo :p But yes, Diablo basically started the trend, as far as released games go TQ is the best "clone" out there, especially since they came up with some great ideas on their own.

    Ah ok. I LOVED TQ. Hell I feel like installing it again since I got a 570. My 5850 would bog down sometimes.

    TQ is a great game, it's the only Diablo like game that held me over. Mostly because like I said it wasn't an exact clone. I like Diablo for being dark TQ wasn't, but they came up with their own great timeline and classes (plus that talent system with hybrid classes).
