Diablo III

    Release date is 15th of May.

    Once the game is released I'll put in a list of Battle Tags or Battle.Net Real IDs so we can get some coop on the go.

    I am ridiculously excited about this.after playing the Beta. Only had a chance to play as a Monk in it but I really liked the class so am pretty sure that's what I'm going to roll come release.

    Anyone know what sort of crossover there will be with Beta achievements? Do they become Feats of Strength maybe? Were the banner rewards for the Beta or the main game?


    Forum Diablo III battle tags:

  • I just can't get past my objection to its always-on DRM. It's that sort of nonsense that's driving me away from PC games. If the port to the 360 turns out to be any cop, I'll be all over it like a rash though.

    The Diablo III beta was my first experience with this series, really looking forward to the full thing (Monk for me too).
    Unfortunately I may be fucked over by the always online requirement for a while as i'm moving house about a week after this releases!

    Only played it a few times but it looks and plays great. Co-op should be a lot of fun!

    If I buy this digitally off HActi-Blizz it costs £44.99

    Off Amazon it's £32.91
  • I think I'll wait to see if this gets a yes or no for consoles before buying on pc. Am excite, though.
  • Anywhere cheaper than Amazon? I have booked a holiday during the week this comes out. Not just to play DIII but it is high on the list of things to do.

    Probably a bit cheaper in the supermarkets on release day. But I don't buy games from them.

    Nah, it's definitely coming to Consoles, it's just a matter of when. Got mine pre-ordered at Gamestop. Midnight launch. Woop!
  • A console version has been kind of confirmed though hasn't it? Although they did back-peddal significantly by saying it was still very much in the early stages.

    Should be good fun if it's linked with Battle.net along with the PC gamers. Which it surely will be.

    The new skill system certainly does alleviate the reliance on hotkeys that would have meant PC gamers destroying console peasants dogs mountain-monkeys gents.
  • I wonder how Blizzard will get the micotransactions bit pass Live. Can't see M$oft agreeing that. Blizz taking a cut out of every item that gets sold for real cash in the auction house, but passing none on to the actual online-gaming provider? Unworkable. Nonsense like that which has drained my enthusiasm for this title really.

    MS were rumoured to have changed the rules of live to get Minecraft running though so perhaps they'd be open to a chat? 

    I've got it due on PC anyway but after a quick blast on the beta weekend I saw nothing to worry consoles too much. Has the PS3 played much with Steamplay since the Portal 2 tie up way back when? Only just got me a PS3 so may well be out of the loop…

    I can't see the game working very well on console anyway. How do you translate its pointy clicky nature? Pure Gauntlet aim and fire?
  • They say Torchlight worked quite well on the boxes.  Mind you, they say a lot of things.

    If you use the code GAMES5 you get a fiver off it at Tesco, so it's £27. But they charge you immediately.

    Anyway... SQUEEEEEE


    Having played through 2 three times I'm ready to lose more hours of my life to carpal tunnel. 
  • I think Torchlight played better with a pad than point and click

    Nope, that doesn't work any more.

    Ah well, £32 isn't that bad.

  • Cheers for the Amazon heads-up. iOS gaming has completely ruined my perspective on what a reasonable cost for a game is, but £32 is acceptable. I played the beta weekend and definitely like the feel of the Demon Hunter. I just wish there were no region locks on your characters - I'm having to convince my friend in the US to choose our server so I can play with all and sundry.

    People dress up as Witch Doctors for a laugh.

    All it would take is a cursory glance from N'Gai Croal.

    Search tool thing suggests this is the Diablo 3 thread. Is this true? 

    Found this today. Blizzard suggest you really have to delete all the beta crap if you want a smooth load on 15th. Just FYI.

    Linky told you to delete a Battlenet folder before you install if you had been on the beta. I'll try and hunt it down again.

    Amazon won't let me order this now. Why is that¿

    If only I could start playing it now rather than have to wait until Tuesday :(

    Oh, it has to unlock? The bastards.
  • The whole game is essentially a Demi-MMO, even if you play solo you can be affected by lag/disconnects.

    Community is up in arms about it but then again they've all probably bought the limited edition too.

    Found the cached page from Blizzard about battlnet and beta,

    "
    Lurdlespor
    Blizzard Employee
    If you have installed the Diablo III beta at any point and intend to install Diablo III, please make sure that all Diablo III beta files are removed from your system prior to installing the full game.

    This includes the Battle.net folder, which can be found in the following locations:

    [WINDOWS XP]
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Battle.net

    [WINDOWS VISTA/7]
    C:\ProgramData\Battle.net

    MAC
    /Users/Shared/Battle.net

    Once this folder and all other beta files are removed, simply run the installer again."

    The page now reports as 404 so perhaps the installer will fix this but worth a quick look to see if it's there. Tesco did not post this to me today and it's still showing as 'awaiting dispatch'. 3 days to get it sorted Tesco. Harumph.

    Now the fact I'm expecting the Blizz servers to melt and be completely impossible to log into for at least the first 2 or 3 weeks is irrelevant. Chop chop!

    Edit: 
    Just found this too. Not sure if relevant to anyone here but FYI,

    "New Downloaders for English and German
