I played in one of the beta's a while ago, which was shortly after D3 had come out. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent. If you're looking for an ARPG fix, check it out.

Haven't played it but as i have seen from the videos I have every reason to be fairly excited!

P.S.: Bluexy are you playing now? Because I have problem downloading the open beta data. The speed is too slow...

jace2012 I jumped in for a bit, yup! I'm betting lots of folk are downloading, slowing down their servers. Keep at it.

I really hope it is good!

Btw the skill point system reminds me of the one used in Final Fantasy X. Have you played it?

Jace2012 Yes! The skill system is really impressive, but also rather daunting. It's a lot like the Final Fantasy X sphere grid, for sure. I spent a lot of time just plotting through the whole thing looking for interesting paths to follow.

There's a lot of depth in this game, a lot of complexity too, but it's a lot of fun if you're willing to give it a fair shot.

This is a great game, very comparable to D3. Many people are saying that PoE is what D3 should've been, I myself haven't played it enough to determine if it is better or worse yet.

Certainly worth a look into for any PC gamer, though.

I cannot say if it is better than D3, but having played it for a few hours i can say it is the best fix for someone looking for a similar to D2 experience.

I wasn't able to download the client since the 24th. It could be because of servers strain due to thousands, if not millions, of people downloading at the same time. So, I waited until a couple of days; still I wasn't able to download from the official website. Maybe Grinding Gears haven't anticipated this.

It's a shame I have to download the game client from different websites. I'm currently downloading from Game Arena's library. Just in case someone is also having a hard time to download the client from the official website, you can get it from here: http://www.gamearena.com.au/downloads/details.php/path-of-exile-open-beta-client-v010b

Very fun, i like the sphere grid, i may be bias though as a final fantasy fan. Graphically its about 10 years too late, there's a lot of crashes, game play bugs, and stuff, (it is open beta) the response time for fixes is very fast. The community seems friendly, The game itself is very fun, as is the item crafting system, vendor system, skill/spell system. I cant wait to see how this game develops in the future, and others like it.
