    I know there have been some rumors but does anyone know if there has been anymore word on if this is coming to consoles?

    I played D2 on a couple different occasions and it got addicting. I can see myself getting this game and forgetting all about the few other games I've been wanting over the next year or so. Maybe I will.

    I think it's gonna take a little bit more ad money to convince me to buy this.

    I've never played any Diablo game before but this looks amazing. I definetly wanna play this.

    Don't believe the cinematic trailers; they are among the most misleading I have ever seen.

    I've never played a Diablo game (don't hurt me) but I'm mildly excited for it. I say "mildly" because, well, I've never played one! I will say that Blizzard holds my favorite art style trophy (before From Software's Dark Souls, that is), so the concept art alone has be jazzed. I'll give it a whirl when the release date comes.

    Reason #14: It's effing Diablo 3!

    Lol 2pac reference, good song too.

    You know, I haven't seen a Gamesradar article...or any other article on videogame sites that's about how they're not at all jazzed up about this game and maybe commmenting on just the hype for this game and if it's warranted or not. I predict a 10/10.
  • InFeRnOg - May 11, 2012 12:26 p.m.

    Sadly you're probably right, even if the game doesn't deserve a high mark. See: 98% of Call of Duty MW2 reviews. Pressure to give a glowing review will likely cause a lot of reviewers to do so; here's hoping some of them look past the hype and actually review the game they are playing. 5 or 6 out of 10.

    I preordered this back in January, it's hard to believe the torturous wait is almost over :D
  • Kentastic84 - May 10, 2012 4:40 p.m.

    Pre-ordered this December 2010. Try two years. :P
  • ThundaGawd - May 10, 2012 7:18 p.m.

    I was waiting for them to announce the collectors edition, if it was possible, I would've preordered it back in 2007 when they first announced it XD
  • KNITEpanda - May 11, 2012 6:57 p.m.

    I was waiting for them to announce it too. Sadly I wasnt able to pre-order it once I found out and now its too late. I really want that pre-order content :(

    I always wait for reviews before i buy a game... except for blizzard games, they've never disappointed me and i never regretted a 1st day buy. can't waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait!!!!!!!

    As for the whole greed thing, Blizzard was raking in the big dollars before they were bought by Activision with WoW and it's subsequent expansions. Yeah, they take a cut of profits earned in the auction house, but who cares? You have the option to not do it, so I won't be spending money on in-game items. Kind of like TF2. You CAN buy this stuff with real life monies, but you don't HAVE to.
  • Fox_Mulder - May 10, 2012 1:03 p.m.

    Also: World of Starcraft, World of Diablo. It's the next logical step. Captcha: chnnfo 71/407

    The two posts below make sense... if you never got invested in D2. For those of us that did though, playing through it just to see where the story goes (and the gorgeous cutscenes) will be worth the price. I don't agree with a lot of the decisions that they made (Real money auction house being the prime suspect) but it is Blizzard after all. They wouldn't release a game if it wasn't top notch.
  • InFeRnOg - May 10, 2012 2:06 p.m.

    I played a lot of Diablo II. That is why I was disappointed with the Diablo III beta. Not even taking into account the numerous issues I have with the direction they have taken, it was surprisingly unpolished for a game that was 99% complete. Revisit Titan Quest, then get Grim Dawn when it comes out next year. I will be very surprised if you don't have more fun doing that than you will playing Diablo III. Even if you want to see what happens in the "story".
  • ncurry2 - May 10, 2012 4:18 p.m.

    While I agree that there are still a number of issues, I respectfully disagree that it won't be worth the purchase. Obviously this comes down to personal preference. A number of changes seem to alter what people like you and me associate with the Diablo series(attributes, skill trees, unabashedly downing full rejuvenation pots during duels, etc.) but I've gotta admit, I'm kind of glad that they are at least trying to improve upon Diablo 2, not just rehash it with new paint. As great as D2 was, it's a 12 year old game. It would be foolish to expect anything other than a lot of changes. As far as being unpolished, I think that's a little premature. It was only act 1 and a very bare bones act 1 at that (from what I understand, there will be much more in the full release of act 1). And even so, when you think about D2, how many of your memories naturally turn towards playing through Act 1? One of the things that surprised me most after playing the free beta weekend was how much I actually liked the new skill system. I was completely against it until I actually tried it out. Now I'm more excited for the game than ever. In D2, it was so hard to try to experiment with new things since that would require hours of leveling (or at the very least trading off some decent gear to do a good uber run; something I think will be lacking from D3) and an enormous amounts of either magic finding or trading for gear. Then you find out that light sorcs aren't nearly as good as fire sorcs and all of that is for nothing and you've gotta restart everything. At least now you'll have the ability to try new things and experiment without scrapping the failed one.
