Official Diablo 3 topic. Mar. 29th, 2012 @ 11:06 PM Reply

Yep, there's way too many of them damned Diablo topics. Let's keep them all in here, shall we?

First, what is Diablo? If you've been hiding under a rock in the 90's and 00's, Diablo is simply the BEST GOD DAMNED HACK AND SLASH / RPG GAME THAT'S EVER BEEN MADE! Here's a bunch of videos.

This being said, let's talk about Diablo 3. It's coming out soon. I'm excited. Everybody should be. Haven't pre-purchased it? I know I have! Click this damn button and pre-purchase it right now! No, I don't work for Blizzard, no they haven't given me a damn penny for this line! Screw them!

Anyway. What class are you going for? What's your expectations? Do you already have friends / a clan / group set up? How long have you been waiting for? I know I've been waiting for... ever. Never thought they were actually going to make it one day. I kinda fell off my chair in 2009 or 2010 when they announced it. And now it's almost out. Get your rusty gaming PCs out, because there is now once again a reason to play video games.

Personally, I will be making a Demon Hunter, to go with my RL buds who are all making a char of each of the other classes. I was going to to go for the mage, but I kinda overdid Sorceress in Diablo 2. Demon Hunter seems like the perfect choice, since I always loved the Zon and the Assassin in D2.

I really REALLY expect some great music in the game, because I still listen to the D2 soundtrack every now and then, and it brings back so many great memories... I just hope they will not try to do too much and completely change the amazing musical style of Matt Uelmen... you know... not try to modernize it all too much.

This being said, enjoy the Video Games Forums Diablo 3 topic. Yes, I know there's a Diablo club. But it's old and obsolete. This thread is about DIABLO 3 ENTHUSIASM. ENJOY.

I am looking foward to it. Diablo 2 is still one of my favourite games, though I haven't played it for a long time. It would be nice to get Diablo 3 and have some fun with it. I might see if my World of Warcraft guild ends up wanting to form a clan in it or something, as I never did have a clan in Diablo 2 so it would make diablo 3 more fun.

I haven't bought it yet, but I am planning on getting the year subscription thing for WoW which comes with Diablo 3 as a bonus, may as well if I keep playing WoW.

Can't fucking wait. I hope I'll get into the beta before it's released. Although I guess my chances are slim at the moment.

Meh, I'd rather wait for the REAL DEAL more than getting to play some unfinished Act 1. :P

I agree, I personally prefer to wait and play the full game than join in with the buggy as hell testing. It's like with WoW they have the beta testing but even though I want to play the expansion I leave it until it's released, loads of people obsess over wanting to jump in and do it but other than the amusing broken stuff you get it just isn't good compared to leaving ituntil it's done. Which is especially the case when going for a game you will spend ages playing to avoid you getting tired of it to quickly.
Beta testing can be fun though, like having classes or spells so ridiculously powerful that they can decimate everything and everyone with a single spell. But I just listen to the amusing stories instead and wait until it's all done and dusted and can actually play the game without the character falling though the floor and game crashing every few minutes.

I can't wait for diablo 3. I'm playing Path Of Exile at the moment to prepare for diablo 3 and get my mind off the waiting. A month and a week left, it's not that bad. D3 releases exactly 3 days after i finish my exams and my holidays start so it's really not that bad.

Get the Diablo 2 pack right now, play Diablo 1 and 2 this month, and be mentally prepared (or challenged) for D3!

I am planning on buying this game near the day it comes out since I finally have a decent PC.

I have a question though. I have a quad-core AMD A6 processor with Radeon graphics. I can run World of Warcraft on medium at 60fps and Civilization V at a nice looking setting. So, I would be able to play this game at a respectable setting right? It isn't very hard on the graphics?

The beta has been lots of fun for me and definitely is making the final game look very promising.

My favourite class seems to be Monk. What is your favourite class (if you have played the beta)?

Again, this is only a speculation, but I believe they will make sure Diablo 3 can run on most "decent" computers, just like WoW. I don't have a top PC myself, but I'm confident it will run D3, since it runs SC2, HoN and WoW.

Well, I would say that SC2 and Civ V have somewhat similar requirements. If you can run it then I can too. Probably on medium.

Medium graphics on SC2 and WoW? That's not decent. That's low end PC gaming right there.

Well, I could run higher. But I refuse to play at any setting that makes my frames dip below 70 or so. I wouldn't notice a difference that much... it is an obsessive thing.

Been playing the mess out of this beta. Anybody else really like the Monk? Once you get the rune for teleporting punches he just rapes face.

I haven't been able to play the monk yet, I'm trying to get my wizard to level 13, although wizard seems meh compared to the wizard in D2.

After that I'm trying out demon hunter

BETA.

Don't play the BETA. This ain't 5% of the game. Not even 1%.

I never got into the first two Diablos, mainly because I never had internet until 2010, but I got the beta for Diablo 3 and I'm level 11 on demon hunter, with about the best gear possible from the blacksmith.
I'm gonna go for level 13 and then start a hardcore hero tonight, since I can't get on the servers during the day.

RATHER ANNOYED.

What server are you trying to connect to? I get error 3003 on europe and asia, but the us servers work fine, unless battlenet is down for maintenence of course.
