    It's worth noting that once you are ingame, and have people on your friends list, they can join your game at any time, without your permission or anything. So, Invites are not required.

    So there really is no difference between an SP game and an MP game?
    If I'm playing my SP game, any friend can join in if I have any friends in my list?

    IT's also worth noting that Full-Edition players cannot MP with Starter-Edition players. Bought the retail copy, got a code or 3 to share, want to play a bit with a friend using the guest pass? NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!


    But Starter Edition players can MP together.:D

    Okay, I'll start adding some friends, but you guys could regret it as I have zero experience in MP games and suck at team dynamics. :D

    Yeah I don't get it. We are like a well oiled war machine in BF3. In Diablo 3 we are like Jerry's kids.

    I'm on the fence with buying DIII. Anyone with an extra guest pass they will part with, before I blow the $60?

    If you wait til mid-june they will be releasing a global free trial to anyone. Same deal as the guest pass without needing the guest pass. If you can't wait that long, maybe you should just buy it ;P

    I droppedd into Dave's game to give it a try. I can see it can be a total cluster f* lol

    Going into MP somewhat hoses your SP game. Not irreparably, but you lose your place and have to start over at the specific quest beginning (not a big deal) and you lose your follwer and have to go back and rehire them.

    I read a bit on the internet for tactics to beat Belial, and guess what !!
    I'm still getting my ass kicked. :rockout:

    It's worth it. Just buy it. It's loads of monster slaying goodness. :)

    Yeah I remember him being a pain in the butt. Having multiple people really helped me. Also ranged damage. My Barb had to get close to him to do any damage at all. And that's not a place you want to be. Are you on nightmare?

    Man I was the same way. I had no idea what to expect but I fugured with such a cult following and it being Blizzard and all I would take a gamble. Its not even my style of game. But man I LOVE IT.

    I had to completely alter my setup for belial. Make sure your follower is setup with healing abilities to keep you up.

    Thing is, I always think buying a game is a good idea. However, I haven't been much of a gamer for years. I thought with Skyrim that I would actually really get into gaming again. Nope. Got bored after like 4 hours of play. I think the last games I actually finished were DII and HL2...I'm not kidding. So, I'm hoping to get a solid feel for the game first, and since it's a hack and slash, I may get into it. I just don't want to spend $60 to find out.

    Oh I can dig that man. Yeah I would try and score a guest pass. Its a hack and slash but if you lost the passion to game then I would wait. No need to blow 60 bones in this economy. I got it to play with the guys in TS.
