Hhahaaha, I just wanted to say the same. Good stuff, Orgazmo. Guess I wasn't quick enough on the draw.

Have fun everybody. I won't be participating as I'm Mr. Cool and therefore have had acces to the beta for a while.

only around 7 hours until the beta starts...and it appears there is nothing to be done until then...thinking of playing some Dota just for the time to pass faster!

No luck. I'm sure I'll past the login screen in the morning when all the Americans are asleep. Really excited about this.

The servers were too full the first time I tried logging in, but I just tried again immediately and got in. Ended up playing for a few hours and got a Monk and a Barb to level 13. Pretty good game, so far. Just wishing it had more content.

Yeah just spent about 3 hours on it with a friend, game seems cool. I liked how it's not about carrying million of pots, town portals and ID scrolls anymore. Fixed a lot of the stuff I hated from the older games.

Not going to play anymore though, don't want to burn myself out before the real game haha

I'm constantly getting an error 37 saying the servers are busy, guess I don't have a chance of logging in for now.

Yeah. At the moment I'm unable to play it since I'm about to be going to work in a few. Sucks. I hope it doesn't do this when it comes out.

Not sure what I think of it to be honest. The game seems somewhat average, I could get this exact same experience from Torchlight 2 in a few months without having to go through DRM. I'm just not all that impressed, I don't even like the graphics I had the game maxed out and it just looked really dated.. I wanted to like Diablo 3 as Diablo 2 is one of the best games of all time, but this just doesn't do it for me.

I have only ever played D2 at my cousins many years ago so I never got far into the game, I can hardly compare the 2 as I simply don't remember much from D2. But D3 on it's own, I will probably enjoy it. I have torchlight and it lacked some things, it just got boring to me and scaling became bad late-game where I was spamming pots on one char to survive while the other had no problem, simply because of RNG gear. I think D3 will tide me over because of the traps and profile-shared money equipment and skills, I also had some fun playing in multiplayer with my brother. I will likely just hold off with buying it for a few weeks and check out how the game plays out later in the game, mostly content wise.
