Diablo III Open Beta Weekend

Following indications yesterday that more accounts were being granted access to the Diablo III beta test, the Diablo III Website announces the beta will indeed be opened this weekend to anyone with a Battle.net account for stress testing. The open portion of the beta will begin at 3:00 pm EDT today and will run through Monday at 1:00 pm EDT. The accompanying FAQ explains how this will operate, and notes that while Korean players cannot participate, they will be holding a separate invitation-only event in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. The invitation only closed beta will continue as planned until May 1st. To get a head start, you can download the client now from Battle.net.

What seems weird to me is that as a wizard, I was using axes, swords, bows, shields, etc. Seemed like I could use pretty much any weapon I picked up. That was just odd. I don't like the skill/rune system. It's boring. Every character of the same class ends up exactly the same. The animations are pretty lousy considering how long this has been in development. Along with the muddy graphics, it looks really bad for a 2012 game. Five years ago they probably could have gotten away with this.

The merchants and blacksmith seem pretty useless. They sell/make almost nothing better than weapons I get from drops. What's the point?

I'm thinking about playing through again with another class to see if I can find anything else redeeming about it. Right now I think the only thing I like about it is that it still has more personality than other games in the genre, and the reaction animations of monsters getting hit/pushed/slammed are cool to have. Other games should add more of that kind of thing.

Overall though, this is a very mediocre game. It's utterly insane that this took so long to create. No way am I buying it, especially since Bliz games tend not to go on sale.
