I played this game and some others like it and found them all primitive and terrible

Heh...stick it on Hard. You won't find it primitive.

Dumbed down skills trees (Actually, what skill trees? LOL) no assigning of attributes....graphics that are barely equal to Torchlight.

Pass.

I think the graphics look better than Torchlight 2. The ones in Torchlight 2 remind me of the blocky 3D ones we first saw with 3dfx cards.

Unfortunately my hype for D3 has lessened of late. I spent a weekend with Guild Wars 2 and it's all I can think about. They call it, the GW2 Effect. The inability to think about, let alone play for more than an 20 minutes, any game, especially an MMOG, after witnessing the glory that is Guild Wars 2.

Trust me, I have it bad.

I was the opposite. I've been in the GW2 beta since it started. Played it once for an hour, never touched it again. I found it pretty boring and hated the camera angles. Still, I have been finding a lot of games boring lately. I was in the D3 beta for months and just started playing it several weeks ago.

I found the Witch Doctor to be the weakest, but the Monk and Demon Hunter were pretty powerful. I never got a chance to try the Barbarian or Wizard in the beta, but in two weeks I can

Umm thats nothing but a CIV 5 mod...what the hell

No it's not. Just because the hexes look the same doesn't mean it's a mod. In your thinking, even Civ 5 could be a mod of any tactical hex game or the early HoMM games Rolleyes

I was intent on not buying this when it comes out because I dislike the strict, always online connection and that there will be no modding. Some of the best mods I have ever played were in D2 and that made the game fun for hours and hours. Unfortunately, I don't think I will play D3 as much as I did D2. The quirky server issues and lag were bad too but I have faith that it will get better.

However, I will most likely buy this because, yes, it is Diablo and some of the most fun I had in college was staying up late and playing with a guy on the other side of the country for hours and hours. I still remember the original Demo in PC Gamer and how I kept replaying it over and over again.

Of course, my wife doesn't understand my gaming habits, but now that my older son is getting to the point we can do co-op, I think this will be a lot of fun too.

If it's moving to the Mid- or Southwest, don't go. With your wife's apparent hatred for airconditioning, you'll be trying to survive in a 150 degree attic...

We don't always use ACs here in MN. just go to the basement. Since it's in the ground, it's much cooler.

Too bad there's no moddability. The mods from D2 that served up some crazy skeleton/golem/spirit summoning were awesome. I think at one point I could summon 30 skeletons, a couple of golems, and some ghasts.

I hope they do fix the AI. Nothing is more aggrivating than to hear the Germans see a dead body, search for you, tell the others that it's all clear/go back to your patrol and then see the same dead body and scream out there's a sniper: find him!

So, let me get this straight. it took the guy how many years before you decided they stole his idea and is now suing? OK!!!

Probably tried to settle out of court using lawyers behind the scene and when talks fell through, he went public. Or, he just found out about the game.

This looks interesting, I like old school RPGs The screens remind me of the good old SSI AD&D games, like Pool of Radiance, the Krynn series, and so on. I played each and every one of them back in the day (including drawing all the maps on paper).

Definitely need to check this one out, I guess (well, after Legend of Grimrock, that is)

I loved the original Exile from SpiderWeb back in the mid-90s. You can't go wrong with any of their games.

Ever hear of preview/press copies?
This can't be your first time on the Internet can it? Is humor that hard to spot?

It is when there's no sarcasm tag attached.

I think its unfair that these reviewers get to play the game before I can. Unlock is coming tomorrow but its still unfair. Did they pirate it maybe?

Ever hear of preview/press copies?

Hey, Mr Capps: Maybe you should take some tips from developers like Mojang and other Indie Game developers. Make something that's fun, drop it exclusively on PC, put a price tag that makes sense and you'll have more sales than pirates.....Or, is that just too hard to comprehend?

I can't wait for the day when the piracy blame game is placed on the consoles but I guess that's just wishful thinking....

Nice! Although after 25 years you have to wonder if the media is still any good.

Yah, it's not like 3.5" disk were known for their reliability. It's great that he found this.

That's why you have companies like Kroll Ontrack who can recover data from even burned or physically altered disks.
