    Re: diablo iii ii or i?

    I played the second one for a while before I lost the CD

    I think the third one will be great but I probably won't be getting it as none of my friends are PC gamers.

    it's a pass time, can be played stand alone - like solitaire, but with more blood and guts.

    Re: diablo iii ii or i?

    Diablo 1 was ok both online/networked and alone
    Diablo 2 was great as a co-op game, untill all the spambots showed up, then you cant see to play, *** up with that being allowed????
    Diablo 3 supposed to be fantastic, bet the bots will screw it up too!!!!!!!

    Perhaps not, Temmu, but they will be assimilated.

    Watch This Diablo 3: Wrath Animated Short Clip

    Here's an animated clip by director Peter Chung and acclaimed animation studio Titmouse to keep you entertained until May 15, Diablo 3 Day.

    On Tuesday Blizzard sent over a short animated Diablo 3 clip from director Peter Chung and acclaimed animation studio Titmouse.
    It depicts a unique vision of a fundamental moment in the battle between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, a moment that took place long before the creation of Sanctuary.
    If you ever wanted to see what a Diablo-themed anime would look like, here's your chance.

    Diablo III Collector's Edition Unboxing


    By midnight tonight, when Diablo III is released, gamers will be lined up in front of retail stores to nab a copy of the game or waiting patiently in front of their computers for the Battle.net servers to go live.

    Diablo III, one of the most-anticipated titles of the decade, is the long-awaited sequel to 2000's Diablo II. PCMag got a Collector's Edition of the game and opened it early to see what you'll get for $99. That is, if you can find a copy; most have already been pre-ordered and are out of stock at many retailers.

    Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.1 Available for Download, Doesn’t Fix All Problems



    Blizzard is busy rolling out Diablo III all over the world today, but it has released a day-one update for the game as well, in the form of patch 1.0.1, and also admitted that quite a few bugs have not been solved yet.

    Diablo III has finally been lauched but, before anyone can actually install the game, Blizzard has already released a mandatory patch, in the form of update 1.0.1, which should be automatically downloaded through the game’s launcher interface.

    If not, then you can manually download it right now, from Softpedia, at this link.

    Diablo 3 Beaten in Just 7 Hours?

    Diablo 3 is officially out the door and in the hands of PC gamers worldwide after a long 12-year wait. [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]The [COLOR=blue !important]game[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] was actually announced by Blizzard on June 28, 2008 but went into development long before that -- just one year after Blizzard published Diablo 2 in 2000. Needless to say, for Diablo fans, the wait was horrendous whether it was four years or 12 years.

    A Guide to the Classes in Diablo III

    Diablo III is finally here and if pre-orders are any indication, many of you are probably already playing it. With five separate classes that each have their own unique playstyle, you may be having trouble picking which one to play first. Luckily we've got a guide to choosing which class is right for you so you can start facing Hell's most powerful demons as fast as possible.

    Re: A Guide to the Classes in Diablo III

    You know, I almost went out and bought this game today but I heard way to many people at school complaining about the servers being down...

    No offline play? Bad choice Blizzard.

    Won't be buying it until they fix some things...

    Blizzard Apologizes for 'Diablo III' Bugs, Delays Real-Money Auction House

    Blizzard Entertainment apologized for issues surrounding the launch of Diablo III and said that it would delay the launch of its real-money auction house until everything was back in order.
    Already frustrated by the game's requirement for a persistent online connection, Blizzard angered many after it was forced to take down the game's servers for maintenance the day of the launch. Gamers turned one of the error codes, "Error 37," into an Internet meme.

    ok. i just saw this. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2404436,00.asp
    but they're also required to connect to the Battle.net servers to play. That's right, even if you adventure alone, there's no true “offline” mode,
    now i wonder if i will buy this at all!

    ps
    maybe some quick work with wireshark can decipher what's going on and a work-around built. hmm...
