    I first played the original Diablo back in 1997, and immediately fell in love with it. Then in 2000, we were given Diablo 2, which was bigger, better, and more bad * in every way. Next Tuesday, we finally get Diablo 3, and I couldn't be more excited. I absolutely loved the beta, and can't wait to get down on some co-op demon bashing with a handful of friends.

    So, who's planning on picking up Diablo 3 next week? Anyone interested in forming an RPF D3 Battle.net group?

    This would be akin to asking "Hey who wants to try heroin? I hear it's lots of fun!"

    Good luck guys - I'm going to try to hold out as long as I can on this one..... :unsure

    No, no, that's World of Warcraft. D3 isn't quite that bad. * close, but not quite.. hehe.

    I've always looked at the Diablo franchise as being a single-player RPG rather than multiplayer. I do have a friend at work who plays, so we might pair up now and again, but I really think I'll be doing most of it solo.

    OH, I SEE, YOU GUYS DON'T WANT TO PLAY WITH ME. FINE. It's elementary school all over again!

    But seriously, I had originally planned on playing my first run through solo, like I did with D1 and D2. But I had so much fun with the beta's co-op, I'm going to be jumping in with friends as soon as I pick up the game. The different classes' skills and abilities really play off eachother, better than they ever did in D2. Seeing it in action, I can understand why the game was in development for as long as it was. Well, maybe not entirely, but still, you can tell that a ton of balancing, tweaking, and polishing was put into it.

    Also, I'd consider D3 a bit more dangerous than WoW. I played D2 on Battle.net on a pretty regular basis (at least once every other week or so) for a good 7 years. As for Wow, after a few friends continuously hounded me to try it out, I picked the game up, and was bored with it within a month.

    I'm so torn on whether to get this or not, I loved Diablo 1 & 2 but I don't know that I have time for D3 given that I barely have time for Old Republic as it is.

    I will be getting this, but not for a bit. I spent my money on pre ordering Resident evil Operation Raccon city for PC(Due out next week). So hopefully that will keep me busy for a few weeks till I have D3 Money

    I've purchased any game Blizzard has done in the Diablo, Starcraft, and Warcraft series. I even have the Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2 collectors edition. I dropped the ball though and waited too long to preorder the Diablo 3 collectors so I'm kinda choked. If I can grab it somewhere I will but if not, I might wait to grab it.

    Diablo's always been a multiplayer game for me.

    Honestly, I'd cancel that pre-order and get your money back. I tried Operation Raccoon City out at a friends house when it releasaed on consoles a few weeks ago, and I absolutely hated it.

    Earlier this week, the PC version leaked, and I decided to download it and give it a try, to see if it was any better than the console versions.

    It wasn't. The game flat out sucks. It doesn't even feel like a Resident Evil game, it feels more like a standard, rushed, 3rd person shooter, with a squad of characters nobody cares about. On top of that, it suffers from a shallow, paper thin story, several bugs, and the controls are awful.

    I'm a huge fan of the RE series, and was really looking forward to O:RC. But *, what a dissapointment. If you ask me, it definitely isn't worth your hard earned money. It's a rental, or a bargain bin buy at best.

    The actual RE6 comes out later this year. I usually don't go for spin-offs, even if I otherwise like the franchise.

    I played DII a lot online until I took some time off and they deleted all my characters. I remember playing with one of my friends and we'd just call each other up to chat while we played. lol I don't have a headset for the computer.

    I picked up the collectors edition this morning but of course the power cable on my laptop is pooched so I need to order a new one before I can play Diablo.

    Wow I need to watch Topis I post on more carefully. Pulse let me ask you a question or 2 for a better opinion on the game.
    1) Did you like RE5 story and play style(again a 3rd person shooter) if so what would you rate it as from a 1-10?
    2)Did you play RE5 on PC and if so what did you think of the controls for that?
    3)As far as the story for Operation Raccon city goes did you find it at all interesting compared to RE5?
    4)The bugs you are referring to, are they huge bugs, that affect game play or anything?

    Either way thanks your opinion on this has made me re think about buying it, and gonna spend 5 bucks and rent it at Blockbuster and try it out on my PS3

    Yeah, I have heard nothing but complaints about technical issues since people started playing. Hopefully blizzard gets that **** smoothed out.

    I can't believe I got this not knowing it was an "Always Online" game. I had issues logging in.... Ok, keep it cool man. I'm now in the game. I'm having a good time. Hey! It's Jennifer Hale voicing a dumb character!

    Old Guy: "These are important texts that tells of the end of the world!"
    Jennifer Hale: "They're not important!"

    Stupid writing in the opening cinematic. Wonderful. Than Single Player started lagging. Again, single Player started lagging. I was going to a cemetery to find a crown, and I cleared the entire area. When I put on a pear of leather pants, the game disconnected me. When I logged back on, everything I did before the cemetery area was gone. It's fun because there is no way to save the game. Than this happened....

    "Server Restart"

    Why? I'm on single player. I don't need your freaking server. I've got the game. The Collector's Edition even! $90+ bucks! Let me play the game!

    *DC'd*

    I'm not the type of person who uses profanity when I'm around anybody under any circumstances, so I'll let JonTron do that for me.

    I loved RE5, the only thing I hated was Sheva's AI, (she'd run around like an idiot hogging all the first aid spray, and then get herself killed). Loved the story, graphics, sound, gameplay, I thought it was all top notch. I'd give it an 8/10.

    I originally played it on ps3, and then grabbed a copy when it was released on PC. I loved the PC version too, it was a solid port, I felt the controls were tight and responsive, no issues.

    Operation RC just doesn't feel like a Resident Evil game AT ALL. Seriously. I have a feeling that once you start playing it yourself, you'll immediately understand what I mean. As for the bugs, they're pretty frustrating. Like getting stuck in invisible walls during boss fights.


    AS FOR DIABLO, yeah, it's been a pretty agrivating experience since the launch. I live on the east coast, and didn't realize till after I picked the game up at midnight that I'd have to wait till 3am before the servers actually went live. Even then, I couldn't get in. So instead I played Max Payne 3 till 4am (which is AWESOME, btw), and then crashed out. After I woke up, I tried D3 again, and was able to start a character. Played for a solid 6 hours with a few friends, with no problems at all. No stuttering, lag, or anything. Although I did notice that the sound got a bit garbled during the bigger boss fights. We made it to Act 2, and so far I've loved the story, and the writing. Sure, it's a bit cheesy, but it's exactly what I was expecting/wanted. It's especially epic if you've played through D1 and D2 and know the story. After hitting Act 2, I decided to log off, did some laundry, took a shower, and tried to log back in. Servers were down again.

    So yeah, hopefully B will get this server business sorted out, because this sucks. I've heard it's not entirely Blizzards fault though. Any by that I mean there are apparently a couple of asshats who have been hitting the US servers with spambots, sending hundreds of thousands of bogus requests, causing the problems.

    Well, seems like Blizzard might be getting their server problems under control. I was able to play yesterday with a couple of friends for a good while with no issues, except for all of 10 minutes, when the servers were rebooted.

    More stuff to buy now. I have a 'fairly' new computer and the graphics card isn't strong enough to run with all the sliders up. :( I gotta have the full effect!!

    I just hit level 30 with my Demon Hunter last night, and so far it's been a blast. I've logged about 13 hours so far, and I'm about a third of the way through Act III. (I've been exploring every area of the maps.) So much fun, and the boss fights are INSANE.

    What do you mean, "*They* cut the power"? How could they cut the power, man? They're animals!

    I am glad you picked up on that one pulse. A lot of gamers keep thinking I am current military personal, which I was not lucky enough to be thanks to a bad leg. However I still tried and was passed through, till 3 days before basic training. The Medical Army review board I guess took a 2nd look at my medical history and decided to deny my previous medical waiver :cry. Oh well looking back at least I gave it 100% effort to join!

    We're all nerds around here.. it seemed far more likely that it was an Aliens reference than anything else. :)

    Very true. You would expect video game nerds would get that reference with my name, but maybe before their time!
