    Would love it! I'm not paying full wack though, Cheapest I can see is £32 from Amazon. I'm not a console gamer, jeeze.

    Did enjoy the beta.. guess I'm waiting for the price to drop :*(

    Heh, its always the way.

    I've never played a Diablo game before (one of my dirty gamer secrets!), but it looks interesting. Does it have PvP?

    im rolling my MBP back to snow leopard. The memory management gain should make Diablo viable...

    Ugh. I hate it when they make a decent game completely annoying. (the always on internet connection isn't helping either.)

    pre-ordered the collectors edition for my gf, its her birthday today,

    she is now a very happy (and slightly bloodthirsty) bunny :D

    t'was a bit steep, but at least I'm not flogging it on ebay for £180, nearly triple what I paid

    I recently restarted Skyrim.. but now I'm Diablo III'ing. I have RPG overload.

    The whole always on DRM is SHITE though.

    So , played for a few hours last night and today. No errors or crashes at all. Blizzard have done the same thing as they did with Starcraft 2 , as it kept its mostly identical but polished it up . Playing as a wizard , it's great fun , frost lazers fired from your hands is nice. I'm away for the weekend which is nice cos I probably wouldn't leave my pc...

    Not too sure bout the skill tree yet, but am at L10

    I never played the original Diablo, so this was a new experience for me. What I didn't get about it is the idea you complete the game, then you do it again and again at progressively harder difficulty levels. The other important thing is the digital download defaults to the US servers, so change yours to europe right away and restart the game - I have a load of US characters now and had to start again on euro so I can see my RealID friends. The other interesting thing is if you are ranged DPS you can hold shift to stay still whilst blasting stuff.

    Also the dungeons are randomised every new game so that adds to the re-play ability

    golightly I've been gentrified. - :(

    When I first saw this video I thought the same thing. I am now think that he makes some very cogent and valid points. :(

    I like the game enough that I've actually stopped playing it.. until I have bought a new gaming PC that I might use for work occasionally... ahem
