loved diablo, loved diablo 2 even better, lord of destruction made the online play a bit more fun and bearable but god i hope in diablo 3 that they don't have the chars expire after a month of inactivity. that used to annoy the hell outta me as i had to work occcasionally and sometimes might not get to it for a couple of months at a go.
as for what char i'm looking forward to playing, guess i'd have to say the witchdoctor looks the closest to what the necromancer. (i'm so gonna miss that bony lazy dude) that aside they have taken way too long in releasing it but its been well worth the wait, i had a go on the beta as the barb and all i can say is OMG, OMG, OMG!!!
overall not the best of hack and slash games out there anymore but definitely one of the better thought out ones. great story line that just pulls you back in so many different ways. Bring it on diablo, the hoards of the horadrim still stamd mighty. (just about!!)
