Hell yeah I had an awesome time testing out the first 10 levels with a few friends on Sunday, this game is going to waste a lot of my life, I have chosen my class and everything :P

Bring on release!

PS: To those who are complaining about login issues and/or game bugs, please go and look up the meaning of 'Beta' and 'Testing'.

PPS: Cy-Kill - please leave your sex life (or lack thereof) out of the comments, you are putting a downer on my morning.

If trying to get on to play is this buggy when the game is launched, guess I'll be keeping my money. I like the game....when I'm able to play it. But now I can't get on and if I do, I get an error when trying to resume my game. Another good game ruined by DRM.

groan at no sex nerd jokes......

Why does everyone always have to make the "nerds who can't get any" joke?

Anyway can't wait to get out of work in an hour to go home and start the war against the deamons one more time!

Actually, I wasn't making a joke, I've never had sex in my life, because everytime I've asked a girl out for the past 26yrs, I've been turned down. Without a girlfriend, I cannot have sex.

You obviously weren't wearing Drakkar Noir when you asked these ladies out.

For the record, I wasn't making a joke either! That was my initial thought, and I found it's funny that's where my mind went so I typed it out. It's a Friday night in spring time! when the minds of many young men turn to trying to get laid.

But I am sure I'll be playing D3 tonight :P

I'm surprised this made it on MaximumPC.

I've been told on here that noone cares about Diablo III.

Especially since I got an email announcing Crysis 3....I figured everyone here would be absolutely foaming at the mouth for it.

Ghok

Well, like most of the time, kixofmyg0t, you were wrong :)

avatar

kixofmyg0t

I know right? People compare everything to Crysis 1 around here and they tell me right here in the comments section that noone cares about Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2......

....yet *I'm* wrong.

Ok well w/e lol.

No, read that article again. I said "I don't think you'll find many people here who want another game like the type you describe." The problem was that you took it to mean that I was talking about Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2. I was really talking about games you were complaining about. I was unclear, but I had hoped in the context of the rest of my post it would have been clear.

I was agreeing with you that graphics don't really matter too much, but I was disagreeing that other people don't feel the same way. People like to talk about graphics because they are much more quantifiable than how "good" a game is (and this is a site about PC hardware), but that doesn't mean they come first in the minds of most people.

No the problem was, *I* was talking about Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2. So when people tell me that no one cares about those kind of games then I'm gonna take it that they're an idiot and only cares about FPS- I.E. a typical PC gamer.

The majority of commentators here only care about graphics. They prove it every time a console is mentioned.

I have it downloaded and logged in and it says I don't have a game tied to my battlenet account so I can't proceed. Any ideas anyone? I thought this was supposed to be free for anyone?

avatar

Cy-Kill

Have you created a BATTLETAG yet, because you need one for the game.

avatar

Veni Vidi Vici

Yup!

Had one before but it still doesn't work.

and mouse manufacturing companies are eagerly awaiting the release of this game

Sweet. Something to do tonight if I can't find someone to have sex with me!

Hopefully it doesn't take the whole weekend to download...

avatar

Cy-Kill

Took me about 40 minutes or thereabouts to download all 3.3GB -- at least that is what the downloader/installer showed -- of the game.

Since I've never had sex in my 30 odd years of life, I'll be at home playing this.

'...Gamers have been griping about some of the major changes made to Diablo III...'

The only people that were 'griping' were the people that have been in the CBT since it started, those of us who haven't been in the CBT have not griped. I for one, haven't even bothered reading anything at all about DIII!

kixofmyg0t

I read CBT and thought something totally different.....

.....or did I? It still works either way.
