Default Diablo 3

Looks like my copy of Diablo 3 left Memphis tonight. Should have it Wednesday at the latest. Been looking forward to this game for a while. Hope it was worth the $ and the wait.

D3 looks good, but I just wish it didn't need a constant internet connection to play. It'd be nice to be able to play a little solo "offline" should I choose or be somewhere that internet is not available.

Yes, I did not know it required constant interweb. I like being able to play offline if the interweb goes out.

Brown Santa dropped off the game around 3:30. I did not realize a DCD/CD drive could work for CD's and not DVD's. Tried an old IDE DVD player, no luck. It seems like I disabled IDE on my MB long ago. Found another SATA DVD drive. Dang this thing installs ssssllllloooooowwwww.....

I don't know if I have a bad DVD drive or what. Has been installing for over 15 mins and is at like 12%. I just want to play the game!

Hahaha, like windows 95 on floppys!!

Personally, I think I am going to download the hack for it when it comes out so I can play offline. We all know there will be one. Ubisoft's always on DRM for AC was cracked in under a week.

I really do understand why they are doing it. Since there now is an auction house, and one that accepts real money, doing so helps against duping, money exploits, hacking, etc. and keeps the auctions balanced. I don't want to exploit, I just travel for my job from time to time and want access to enjoy it.

Well, so far, I like it. I am not impressed with it, but like it.

If any of you want to get a group together, let me know.

Well, my internet is up. Battlenet is down. So I can't play Diablo now. Rock on. I can't play a single player game, when your server is not available.

This is not giving Battle net a good rating.

Cool as far as the group games, but got to love the fail of battlenet. I mean, they only have 20 years of experience. And they can't get it to work on day one.

Yay??

Rock on Battlenet.

I'm afraid that time has passed, it seems any game that releases without an online component get slammed in reviews.

I have no issues with games having online options and yes , some games rely more on the online part.
But this "Must be connected at all times" thing seems to be becoming more popular and so far has failed at almost every turn.
Ask UbiSoft after Assassins Creed 2, the epic fail that cost Ubisoft millions in compensation.
Dead Island is another one, it caught me off guard at first because I didn't know it was an open online world, so to me, everything that moves in an enemy, so when I saw the first online player warp into my game in front of me, I went medieval on his arse

As for Diablo 3, I have little interest n playing it, not really my type of game and from what I'm seeing in videos it has very little visual wow factor.
I think I'll stick to Skyrim.

Gloozit, D3 has single player options. You just have to be online to play it. I suspect it is an attempt to prevent the hazed items and such that was bad on D2. I see they have an online 'store' type things where people can sell items they find in D3 to other people. Sounds like they are trying to cash in on the people with deep pockets who will just buy stuff instead of finding it in the game. Not too sure on how the store works, have not checked it out.

I still remember that when i was a tiny teenager, i spent a couple of hours playing diablo 2 everyday.

I do not why i was obsessive with this game. I just can't stop it. BUT now i quit the games becasue of my graphic card was burned down after 9 consecutive hours game play. I wish i would have a super graphic card cooler at that time.

Now, prepare well for 3!

My two sons got me the game so I could play with them online. I got great kids! This has been an awesome birthday for me

About an 8gb download via Battlenet, but it's a heck of a fun game to play! An HD4870 card rocks this game, by the way. My new system is a i5 2400 CPU on an ASUS P8P67 deluxe motherboard, with the 4870 card. I love the graphics in the game, and the overall play is seamless and fast.

Did notice Battlenet was offline the other day when I went to play it

Lovin' this game!!

DIII is pretty good. I get some lag all along. I guess because it is partially online.

Well, went through it in Normal mode, now in Nightmare. It is not as good as I hoped, but is a fun game.
