    Actually yup. It was shown to me through this multi-platform gaming clan Im part. Kept me more interested then D3 so far. And to see you mention this, and not a single post on heart of the swarm anywhere, we all know whats happened to blizzards games. =\ God damns you activision!

    I was interested, but I am not a fan of their business model, so I think I will pass. I hate f2p/microtransactions, I would rather pay a monthly sub or just buy the game outright.

    Belph: Blame World of Warcraft, if anything, it has destroyed Blizzard as a company... Vivendi/Activision would never have happened if they hadn't created that cash cow.

    Mike Morhaime answers to Kotick and his exec team now, I don't forsee Blizzard ever regaining its creative/economic independence unless WoW crashes and burns and Titan ends up sucking.

    I'm pretty hooked on it. I haven't been this into a game since the earlier days of World of Warcraft, back when it wasn't garbage, in my opinion. I have played a little bit of Heart of the Swarm, but there's little substance in that game to keep me coming back. If you play Path of Exile and want to add me, PM me your in-game name.

    I can understand your viewpoint, but the micro-transactions in the game don't provide you with any advantage other than cosmetics. They can easily be passed up by a player who just wants to play the game for free. I strongly recommend it, if you enjoyed D2.

    I'm down since it isn't pay2win.

    btw my brother pointed out to me yesterday that I choose the online games I play based on how much and how easily I can troll the populace. He was totally right so I hope this game allows me to spend at least 60% of my play time pissing people off.

    Well damn then, Sandman, this is your perfect game. The loot system in this game enables hilarious trolling (as well as some of the quests, which purposely allow you to kill other players and, in hardcore mode, subsequently bathe in their tears.)

    Ok, so I gave in and I am playing again. I guess they wiped for open beta... You guys do realize this game has no anti-cheat?

    The footage I've seen seems really dark. Not everyone-you-love-is-dead dark, proper dark. Not sure I like that look.

    I am a bitter old man. :(

    The community and devs are a bunch of elitist aholes but it's a pretty good game if you can get past that. One thing to be wary of is there's no way to do a full respec (well there is but it's so expensive it isn't really an option) and the devs are ****s and won't issue respecs even when the skill tree is modified in a way that changes build strategy (they only issue them when THEY feel they are needed). If you don't want to re-roll, make sure you research your build path extensively as at most you will only have a couple respec points and expect a patch that might break your build or piss you off.

    I can see why you might think some of the community are elitist (though, for the most part in the hardcore community, I feel like people are actually pretty agreeable), I definitely do not see what you're talking about in terms of the devs. I lurk the forums there a lot, and they all seem wonderful.

    There wasn't a way to re-spec in D2 other than re-roll the character, and that game manages to still be fun even now. Over the course of the quests and such (currently) you get around 14 re-spec points, and you can get an unlimited number of re-spec points just by trading for, or finding, Orbs of Regret, which aren't really that hard to come by. I recently did a 30-something point re-spec on my main the other day without much issue. That's part of the game, though, really. One of the reasons D3 became so stale and boring is you could play any spec for your class whenever you felt like it. And yes, typically it's good to plan out the build beforehand, as some builds require staging (periodic re-specs based on level and gear) to avoid death in hardcore.

    I like it but I don't have much time to play. :( Also I've sold all of my computers except for an old Thinkpad X61 and it is not making for a happy gaming time.

    p.s.
    Anyone wanna buy an X61?

    Anyone still playing? I ran across this game while looking for a new game to hack.

    If the devs are elitist *******s, it could be fun to be the thorn in their side..

    I maintain that the devs seem like good people.

    I still play occasionally and I am getting heavily back into it with the impending official release on the 23rd.

    I'd be interested in collaborating.
