Thank you, Blizzard, for giving all of us the opportunity to catch a glimpse before the game releases.

    I preordered the CE after playing the beta months ago, i dislike some of the changes along the way and liked some others. Overall it'll keep me busy without having to devote a part of my life to put in a session.

    Still contemplating... I find the game fun and I know when it is releasing but I'm on a budget and I think I'll like GW2 more. not sure which I want to get at this point, gonna see if I can get into a GW2 weekend before deciding.

  • DarkPonyDarkPony RotterdamPosts: 5,566Member

    Contemplating myself as well. As of now I won't buy it. I think I need to hear more from long term testers / players about what gameplay, character development, challenge and maps are like later in the game and at higher difficuly settings.

    If character development offers little choice throughout the game and maps stay linear, corridor like, I think I wont.

    I'm with you on this one. It's not grabbing me enough to buy it yet.

    Will not buy.

     

    Not like I ever was going to in the first place though, I only play MMO's and Diablo is not an MMO.  Now on the other hand, if Blizzard's titan project turned into a Diablo MMO with the same loot structure and 3rd person instead of top down I would play in a heartbeat.

    So far, the beta has left me kind of wondering where all the development time and budget has gone.

    I'm in the  '... don't know if I will buy it yet'   vote.      After so many years, I expected more than what I saw in the couple hours today.   The game seems dated and it isn't even released yet.  Not a good sign.  I am so far unimpressed, but I'm curious where it goes from here and how its post release plays out.   

     

    *edit*

    Aww hell, at the risk of being lit on fire I'll say what's on my mind...

    Diablo 3 = Blizzard's  Duke Nukem Forever

    Depends on your preference.

    Diablo 3 you devote bits of your life at a tiome if you so desire while GW2 you usually have to devote a chunk at a time. They are different genres. 

    Diablo 3 will have a starter edition(free), i believe it limits you to level 20 and is a bit more extensive than the beta is. Also Diablo3 will never drop in price unless a retailer is purging stock.

    GW2 as far as i know won't have a trial at launch and the price will eventually drop at the very least much sooner than D3.

    I say wait for the D3 launch and play the starter version if you're getting antsy.

    sounds like we read the same review.. i've been in two minds for quite a while on diablo3, that its been given away free to people who sub to wow for a year wasnt exactly a huge endorsement either, even if cash wasnt a bit tight though, i think i'd still be waiting to see what happens with GW2 before deciding whether or not to buy this one, too many things red flagged it for me i think. But even if GW2 turns out to be the worst game in history (Unlikely!) im still not sure i'd buy Diablo3...image

    I preordered the game ages ago so I am definitely getting it even though the damn beta client gives an error half way through the download and then when I restart it's stuck on updating game files.

    Not a fan of the series to begin with, but i played them all..

    No. i wont be buying it. for reasons being..


    1.Its been in development for like 10 years right? expected much more.
    2.60$US (god knows how much its gona be marked up in Australia) for a game that looks and plays like 10 year old one.
    3.Just did not grab me, I believe there just was not enough passion put into it like the old games. - has no soul

    1. Yes and no, it has been remade roughly 5 times. Blizzard norths creation was ended in 2005 and remade since. 

    2. It is expensive.. but it seems to be the path PC games are going.. matching consoles. Also there was no game 10 years ago that comes close to the graphics D3 has now.. be a bit more realistic. 

    3. Music has soul, you can hear and feel it, it makes your body quiver and shake, you can become electrified and move. Video games don't have soul, they may have some blood sweat and tears but no soul. I've never played a game and thought wow this has soul.. cool.

     If I weren't getting it for free, I would most likely not have even thought about it.  It's not my usual 'type' of game (more a Civ/HOMM type of gamer)  I'm also not beta'ing this weekend, since I'm not interested in 'stress testing' :D

    I appreciate the chance to play this early, but I'm certainly not going to buy it. It wouldn't be a bad deal to get it for free if I was interested in playing another year of WoW, but I'm not. I simply can't justify the money for something that felt tired after less than thirty minutes.

    Did you really have to deconstruct my opinions?


    there was no game 10 years ago that comes close to the graphics D3 has now.. be a bit more realistic.

    You have got to be joking?

    I didn't know there was gonna be a starter edition.  I hope it releases with the game at launch, then I can at least level some characters and keep them if I want to buy it.

    I know GW2 and Diablo3 are different genres, but those are the 2 games I'm interested in right now and can't buy them both, so I have to decide between em. I might just wait 'til GW2 drops in price, and go with Diablo 3.

    Wastelander II seems to be a current example.
    They're sticking to their vision even through no commercial funding publishing.
    They went out to the community because the believed in their product.
    They apparently would not compromise features (ie making a fps instead)

    Diablo III screams money grab in my opinion. Because i Believe they think the can just do the bare minimum and profit because of the past franchise success.

    I think it'll be at launch for the starter edition, once you hit 20 the character gets locked until you upgrade though. GW2 i was originally interested in but like you i'm on a budget, after watching some youtube videos of it.. i got turned off.

    It's no Diablo 2, and I feel like I'd rather play Path of Exile which is a better value too (free).

    Oh yes because a money grabber would hang onto the bait for 10 years before releasing a product with the bare minimums.. seriously? If they were out to profit off the franchises success we'd have Diablo 5 LoDx3 now. Sorry but blizzard products usually get you the best bang for your buck. Look at SC1, Warcraft RTS and Diablo2.. they are still updated and slightly cared for even now. No extra dime paid in 10 years for those games.

    Don't think so. WOW's success didn't really provide an incentive to keep churning out new and better (as well as non-subbed) games for Blizz, to say the least. Why compete with yourself?

    One is simple Hack and Slash small group multiplayer game very, very limited, other full fledge TRIPLE AAA MMORPG with thousends of hours to explore and PVP with hundreds of players seems NOBRAINER to me witch will give alot more fun for your hard earned cash:)

    Just to reiterate what i said before, its taken them like 10 years (doest matter how many builds they went though) and the result still looks like shit.

    They could of done this work in 2 years. what have they been doing all this time.


    Sorry but blizzard products usually get you the best bang for your buck.

    Thats very opinionated. and a lot of other companies have signed on for extended support.
