The updated Main Menu music is excellent.

The main menu, where without a beta invite we shall not pass.
Is there an audio/video of it?

Will you be able to respec?

Are certain classes still sex specific? *rogues being female only, for example*
All classes were gender specific in the previous games. D3 lets you choose for all of them. As far as respeccing goes, it seems they just made it require a trip to town rather than something you can do anywhere at any time. While I lack a certain other bluesnewser's fetish for complete tedium in my games *ahem*, I'd like to see them experiment with an added fee as well ;-P It could start out really cheap, to give you an easy way to remedy your early poor choices when you don't know up from down, but with an increasing rate for repeated respecs like WoW.. It just seems like a good idea to at least give some weight to your skill choices, and also giving people more reason to roll multiple characters to try out different builds and such rather than just needing ONE maxlvl barbarian, ONE maxlvl sorc etc. that can just be respecced and re-equipped whenever you feel like.

Oh well. No beta here either so I guess I have to wait and see until I play it to really see how the new system works. Some old school D2 players seem to really like the changes, and others don't as you would expect... Though it's certainly true that the old skill trees were quite flawed, leading to one or two cookie-cutter builds per class.
