    Eh, I might check it out. Diablo's never really been my thing. Too much mouse.

    What did you think of beta? Personally, as someone who never played other Diablo games and whose only experience with dungeon crawlers is torchlight (unfinished), I didn't find it that intriguing.

    I haven't even purchased Diablo3 yet, and with Guild Wars 2 around the corner, I just might not.

    I've never played the previous games. My friends (and an English teacher) have loved em and made it known. So when I got invited a few weeks ago I jumped in. Only qualms I've had with the beta is that it's so short but I can't expect them to give out most of the game now can I.

    I played D3 in a Beta round back in December, and honestly I had more fun playing Torchlight. D3 was pretty, but gameplay was meh, IMO.

    Then again, it could just not be my bag. I wasn't super, super addicted to Torchlight either.

    I played through the Beta and enjoyed it. Definitely looking forward to the game.

    The real shine will be co-op. If Torchlight had been Co-op, I'd still be playing it, instead of stopping after one run-through.

    It seems very easy to get a co-op game going. I am up for playing with anyone that wants to try it out. I do love the WoW style achievements.

    It is very easy to set up co-op. My gf and I was playing co-op last night.

    My bro downloaded the client and we played through the beta start to finish last night. Only downside is he took up most of the bandwidth while downloading so I couldn't join in on Friday Night TF2. My Battle Tag is the same as my username here if ya need/want an extra player.

    I downloaded the beta this afternoon AND... played for 30 minutes before they shutdown the servers. :-(
  • wohoo Beta has been extended!
  • mertesnmertesn I am Bobby Miller Yukon, OK Icrontian
    I played for about 90 minutes last night. It was good, but I'm a little hesitant to pay $60 for a game...especially one that won't work if my internet connection drops.
  • JBoogalooJBoogaloo This too shall pass... Virginia...The Northern part Icrontian
    As someone who has enjoyed this series since it first came out years ago, I thoroughly enjoyed the beta and spent a good portion of my evening last night playing. I'm really looking forward to the release in May. My experience definitely leaves me pleased with my run this weekend.

    I ended up playing for about 4 hours and played the Demon Hunter. Beat it and only died once when I failed to use some of the new skills against the boss.

    Silly Mertesn, everyone knows that only pirates loose internet connection.
