    TheAlertHusky You know? I don't often do this but I think I might actually blow the hundred bucks on the Collectors edition.

    Tim I don't know anything about the Diablo series, I have never played it, and I'm not going to play it.

    So ... tim.

    I played the beta for this and wasn't that drawn in. It seemed like Torchlight with "better" graphics, so if you enjoyed the Diablo's of past, you should enjoy this one.

    I concur. I don't think I've purchased a Collector's Edition since Civilization III and this might be the one.

    Koreish Always a tie in to WoW, and now a tie in to SC2.

    Romad317 $100? ....really, $99 is a reasonable price to lose a hundred hours a week of my life....for however long it takes to play all characters through all levels....who needs live people for social interaction? And that soulstone!

    Wotan Well, the collector's edition sucks balls as usual. Seriously, it's as generic as it can be.

  16. NullenVoyd
    NullenVoyd Damn, and I was going to make a comment about how it would release when they finish Duke Nukem, but once this is out as well, what will we have to mock release dates with anymore? Maybe the day they release a patch that makes Daikatana playable?

    Church4252 CE has been pre-ordered. Good-bye life. It was nice knowing you.
  25. MiracleManS
    MiracleManS Cautiously optimistic. Some of the changes strike me as an over simplification, some not so much. Also heard mixed reports from Beta, but we'll see.

Howdy, ! Got something to say?
