    No one asked them to do that.

    15 million die-hard diablo fans pleaded for a decade for blizzard to make a new game, and more recently, stop fucking it up.

    That is what was asked for. Demands from fans have been brushed aside. The whole legacy of what is easily the greatest piece of gaming history for millions of gamers has been twisted into some horrible apparition of what used to be a well crafted franchise.

    Blizzard deserves no excuses from anyone, no defense in their honor. They don't deserve to have people running around rationalizing the damn shakedown effort and justifying their actions for them.

    very well said abrecan.

    i think the fact that they are giving you the game for free if you buy a year of wow says it all. they made it with their wow fans in mind, not their diablo fans. blizzard is not blizzard anymore, it is activision. another quality gaming giant lost to the impossible ideal of ever-increasing profit.

    I've also been waiting for a Path of Exile beta key for a long time. At least I have The Witcher to tide me over for now, but it's a very different kind of RPG.

    Anyone else so absorbed playing Skyrim that they completely forgot about Diablo 3? It's probably a year away, and I will probably still be playing Skyrim (or modding it) by the time D3 gets released.
    lol, as if it could possibly contend for my attention now!

    I feel like D3 lost its touch about a month into the "beta" when only press had been invited.

    I watched Day9's walkthrough video of the beta. It looks good, I can't wait for it to release.

    Personally I can easily see Diablo 3 take out Skyrim in Graphics hands down. None of this Console to PC porting crap we've been seeing as of late with these lazy developers.

    Played the game yesterday. It starts very slowly, hand full of monsters at a time. Became better later. Hardly any loot drops. When you level up there is no reason to go "yay". Nothing to distribute. No reason to waste days to create silly builds. The skill tree seems rather limited as well. It plays ok but doesn't really feel like Diablo. I doubt I can waste a lot of time on this game like I did with D2.

    I played Witcher 2 so now playing Skyrim for me is like going backward instead of forward.
    I don`t mean to troll but Skyrim is ages behind Witcher 2 in every aspect. As regard to Diablo III I would wait to see it than comment even though I doubt that would impress me more than witcher.

    I was reading my mails and went to the spam "in case of" and, you know what? Blizzard mail saying that I have access to the BETA :)

    Finish my session at the university, and I will be playing ALOT.

    Just make sure it's not a spam email. Check your battle.net account. It will automatically appear, no code required.

    Thats how I felt about D2 when it landed in respect to D1. I never ended up getting into D2, walking around in D1 I would be cautious and on edge at times, I loved it.

    I think so, it would only make sense right. If you put many hours in single player it would be counter productive to re-start from beginning in multi-player.

    In D2 thats how it was, if you wanted to play SP with the option of going MP later then you would just have to make an MP character then make a room and put a password on it.

    I am thinking blizzard will make it as an online single player type play. Depending if you must sign in to your BNET account first to play just like in Starcraft II, so in that regard I'm thinking if SP and MP are essentially linked by the internet now then your character would most likely have access for both SP and MP realms same with the achievements and statistics. Also since they have the Auction House function involving real currency/in-game it leads me to believe you won't be able to play without being logged in so that people won't exploit the feature.
