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

I like it in that I can walk way from it. Its something I can hack on whenever I have 15-20 minutes to spare and not get caught up in it.

My wizard is overpowered, by the way. Every couple of minutes when my cooldown is up, I have an "I WIN THE ENTIRE MAP" button

Demon Hunter is fun also. Crossbow that shoots full auto is fun.

And their servers are still down. Over 12 hours of no DIII. Rock on Blizzard. I did find this little jewel in the Blizzard forum.

Auction site is down. I got in for a few mins, seems most of my stuff sold. Well, at least the game is working now. Off to kill demons.

Exactly! Hop into it and right out of it.

@Fred_G I've not had any issues with lag. Twice now when I decided to play the game the servers were down, though . . .

I get lag almost every time I play. The game just freezes for 10 seconds to a minute. Very annoying. I really wish they had a true single player option.

I don't get it. I never really played Diablo but with all the buzz I gave it a shot 2 days ago. The levels are as exciting as Wolfenstein 3D. Having recently found Wolfenstein 3D in your browser it reminded of the same long tunnels that all look the same so you easily get lost and backtrack to find out where you need to be. You click repeatedly to go forward or hold the mouse button down (ow), then click, click, click, click, click, click to kill monsters until you get to a boss at which point you have to Google to find out how to beat the boss. My wrists are killing me. It's World of Warcraft... Without the World. The graphics are simply fair and almost dated, I really am not too excited about anything I have seen here. I am level 8 or 9 and just got to the first boss that killed me and frankly I don't know if I will play it again.

Am I missing something, what's the fascination with this game?

I do not think it will appeal to new players. For me, it holds copious amounts of nostalgia. Diablo 3 reminds us of a simpler time. I played D1, D2, D2 Expansion, and now this. I do not feel Blizzard gave D3 enough content, and they tried to give it too many MMORPG aspects. However I still enjoy it.


I look at it like this. If someone brought out a new Tribes game, reminiscent of Starseige Tribes (that was the best one), it wouldn't attract many new players.

However fans of the franchise would jump on it. I know I would.

I am a bit disappointed in the graphics and the overall game. Diablo 2 and the expansion added so much more than Diablo had, I really thought it would be much better.

I will probably finish all the levels in the game, and then not play it much. I made many different characters in DII.

I think with me it is largely nostalgia . . . the original Diablo was among the first games that my sons and I played together (that and "Celtic Kings: Rage Of War" which I still play).

I've been pretty impressed with the graphics, but then I'm not a hardcore gamer like others are. If the kids hadn't bought me the game, I wouldn't be playing it. I've also not suffered the lag that Fred_G has. The gameplay is a lot like WoW, tis true. I also like it because, like someone else here has said, it's a handy time-killer. Not so indepth you hate to leave it, but not boring either. Although the more I play it I find some parts of it do get a bit repetitious.

The lag is a special gift to me from Blizzard.

I have not had any lag in the last few days. Have any of you gone to the Auctions? People have listed some things at 6,000,000 gold... WT... They must be using the auction house as additional storage. If I remember right, you can keep 50 items in your auction site after they are not sold in an auction. Or you can transfer them back to your stash.

Bought a sword at the auction. Didn't consider the storage potential of it, though . . . hmmmm.

Makes sense . . . if you put a ridiculous amount on something it's gonna stay there.

Spad, you should try selling stuff in the auction. I have sold a bunch of rare items and magical items. If they sell for over 200 gold in the game, you can usually get 800 or more in auction. They do charge you 15% if it sells, but if it does not, no charge. And why they charge 15% of something that does not exist, I don't know. I guess to set the scene for the real money auction house.

You just said everything I've been thinking about D3, except you bought the game to find out, so I thank you for reaffirming my suspicions.
I based my unplayed opinion on Dragon Age Origins, that endless seemingly random clicking with no aim or real intent.

To all those who waited 75 years for D3, hope you enjoy it, only way I'll be playing it is if it comes free with Elder Scrolls 6

Demon Hunter looks like a lot of fun but from reading these replies it seems like Battle.net is down quite often?

Bah, they are only down on the weekends and week nights.

They have gotten better, but they love to upgrade, on Saturday...
