OMG MY EGO IS OUT OF CONTROL BECAUSE I'M STARTING A THREAD FOR PEOPLE TO DISCUSS A POPULAR GAME.

Anyway, May 15th bitches. Apparently some of you are excited about it...

...time for inferno... 
Time For Bed... 
kind of getting bored of it now. I just finished nightmare and am onto hell now.

Scampie, you are insane! :) 
Hell 
Yeah I beat Diablo nightmare at lvl 49 just to discover I had to be 50 to enter hell, had to grind a whole level to get access to it, that kind of sucked.
I'm still entertained enough with it, even thought it feels the Auction House destroys alot of the fun of finding cool loot, as it's simpler to just buy it cheap on the auction house. 
 
http://higherorderfun.com/blog/2012/05/17/on-how-diablo-iii-fails-to-live-up-to-the-diablo-legacy/ vocalises some issues I have with diablo 3 too,ie story telling and perception of the avatar, nice read. 
Is He Right? 
... they simplified the gameplay?! 
Dont Know 
but would it be that surprising? People are getting dumber and lazier.

I would say a more correct interpretation is that games are selling to a wider audience which, taken as a _group_, is dumber and lazier. 
 
"Simplified" doesn't have to mean dumber. It can mean refined and streamlined, which I believe is what happened here. I don't hear a lot of complaining about Diablo 3, and I know some real fanatics. They all seem happy. 
That's True 
it's just hard to imagine how much more it could be streamlined from D2. Refined, definitely. 
Necros 
yeah that came off worse than it should have, have just got back form 2 days of bullshit corporate speak so was in a more sarcastic than usual mood. 
 
i'm entering inferno soonish as i'm 59lvl atm and enjoying the game so far. with difficulty progression it indeed forces to choose abilities more carefully, watch cooldowns and get proper gear. i like all that and do not understand whines that hell and inferno are super hard.

from the other side, i'd agree with what Bal said that AH kinda destroys hardcore part of the game as u can buy practically for nothing super items (if to farm AH for certain amount of time). from the other side, AH keeps people playing and not getting frustrated with not so lucky items stats and drops.

anyway, great game, with nice dynamics of gameplay and awesome replay/farming value ;) 
Yeah... 
It's not GOTY 2012 or anything, but it's a nice game.
It's definitely a lot funner in Hell difficulty (haven't reached Inferno yet), I love coming across a group of elite monsters and getting completely destroyed, then coming back and figuring out how to take them out most effectively.

I agree that the mood of Diablo is completely lost though (it already was quite a bit in Diablo2 as well). They've replaced dark horror with silly Lord of the Ring epicness, but considering how atrocious the story of Starcraft 2 was, it's not a big surprise. 
This Game Consumes Me 
About to finish nightmare with my demon hunter. 
 
 
From what my rather intensive Diablo 3 playing friend says is that they've royally screwed up the highest difficulty level, mainly via loot table balance issues that Blizzard should have already learnt from WoW (if you played WoW in TBC or Wrath, it's loot was way more fucked up in classic).

Also sounds like a good example of why you shouldn't make your open beta a tiny proportion of the final game, especially in a game where items and character progression are so important. 
 
From what I've read, they intentionally made Inferno pretty much impossible to root out imbalances and such. You're not supposed to be able to get through it! 
Inferno 
I find inferno pretty fun, just don't play it alone, and don't expect to just run through it like you can do the other difficulty levels.
Not sure what is wrong about the loot there. 
Bal 
You need to try http://darkd3.com/ I seriously can't play without it. 
 
i'm more impressed with the way that website works. that's very cool. 
 
Very cool indeed! http://i.imgur.com/a5uyp.jpg 
I Joined The Madness! 
Not a diablo veteran at all so just taking iteasy (normal) for now, somewhere in act 3 now.After an hour i kinda regretted getting the game an hour later i switched to playign somethign different. Th enext day i gave it another try and now im realy liking it :) 
Hardcore Inferno Diablo Down 
http://www.twitch.tv/nl_kripp/b/321924625 -- jump to 6:00:00, he's preparing his spec there. gg 
Actually It's 8:12:00 
 
Expansion Coming. 
Featuring:

New class.
New act that attempts a more D2-like dark and gothic look.
Random dungeons.
Improved loot.
Paragon becomes stat allocation, redistributed account-wide.

Might this save Diablo 3?? 
 
Save D3? It is a good game, slightly flawed but still good.

Blizz sure knows how to make a sexy trailer, looks amazing.
