Diablo III Footage, Beta This Month?

DiabloFans.com has word from an Activision/Blizzard business teleconference, reporting "Mike Morhaime said that Diablo 3 would be heading into Beta 'later this month'," though we've seen several indications this may be the friends and family beta, rather than a more widespread test of the action/RPG sequel. They also have a follow-up post with some leaked Diablo III beta video which may not last long.

But it'll also absolutely kill all modding, and the mods the only thing keeping D2 alive right now.

Tell that to the 50,000 people that were online playing Ladder on US-West earlier today. Granted a few dozen of them (lol?) were bots, still. Modding is great, it's not solely what's keeping the game alive. The game itself is simply a timeless classic for many many people in its original state.

Graphics. Well back in 2000 when Diablo 2 was released, everyone was bitching about how dated it looked too. 11 years later, again, 50,000 people are still playing it online on one of few available realms. I do not disagree with your opinion about what we've seen maybe looking dated, but it looks substantially better than D2, and I still love D2 graphics. I still love D1's graphics, for that matter. Note that a lot of what we've seen on the beta have been shaky cam, or ninja'd screenshots, or shots taken on blatantly bad computers. The latest batch of beta ninja'd screenshots were taken by somebody playing on a non-widescreen monitor at weak resolution. According to sources, they were taken by some recently fired Blizzard employee. They look so bad, infact, that it almost seems like this person purposely took as awful quality screenshots as they possibly could just to instigate more graphic flame war discussions on fan sites. No one will really know until they load up the game themselves on max settings as to how it really looks, I guess.

I don't know anything about Grim Dawn, I will look into it. PoE, still waiting for my beta invite with anticipation. Torchlight 2, day one buy.
