    TL2 all the way for me.

    Fully moddable, lan-support, high polish, made by previous Blizzard employees and all for $20. What more do you want?

    Besides, I just feel morally bad supporting Blizzard.

    Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

    My RPG and Action RPG fix is better serviced by Skyrim and Dark Souls.

    Problem solved.

    Not a fan of single player games anymore, so probably won't be buying this unless it becomes apparent that its a real winner.

     

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    But why settle for second best ?

    Perhaps because the "original" does not live up to the expectations, while the "clones" do, plus provide even more features and a better price to entice people away from the "original".

    Says who ?

    Did you even play D3 ? Or you are showeling dirt because you are bored ?

    ya umm yur missing the d3 and liking option..

    and by the OP he said hes sticking to d3 clones..wich 90% of are f2p or pirated ..sounds like you would be better off playind drakensang or w/e its called or scrolling thru torrents..iv also seen people saying / complaining on forums here that d3 grafix are too cartoony..wich makes me / facepalm ..then they followed by saying..."im waiting for tl2"  / sigh tl2 maybe a good game idk..but grafix wise it looks like a sunday morning cartoon

    i for 1 like D3 only cuz there is NOTHING appealing out there as far as mmorpgs go..soo ill just play 1 of my fav titled franchises and farm my ass off...yes i know its not a mmo ..id much rather play a single player game with co-op than 100% of the mmo's out there today cuz the market / genra has gone down the toilet

    I was pleasantly surprised by Diablo III as my first experience with the game was the past stress test, and most people who played that agreed that it was horrible.  So far I've just completed Act I on Nightmare and I know that I have a ways to go to catch up to the crowd who are already farming on Inferno.  

     

    Here are my first impressions of the game in case any of you are on the fence about the game.  It's not a review but hopefully it'll help some people.

    I have Path of Exile, probably going to buy Torchlight II. I'm on low budget.

    Hmm .. I don't think anyone has finished INFERNO yet. Are you talking about farming the early (like Skeleton king) boss?

    The game is great and highly addictive. I like the new skill system. MUCH better than the traditional tree & points. You can easily test out combo ideas and skill builds. And now EACH choice is an effect .. so it matters much more than adding a point here and there.

    My only complaint is the server down-time. Otherwise, it will be perfect.

    ...except to the millions of people still playing them. 

    With your memory trouble, I guess you forgot to finish that sentence.  Glad I could help.

    The gripe I have with the skill system is that I'm not sure if it adds more complexity or not.  Certain skills like Strafe are simply useless (for the Demon Hunter, at least).  Certain skill + rune combinations are also clearly better than other runes.

    I'll have to side with PoE on this one. It's just...better I guess.

    Torchlight is also good(true Diablo devs made it)

    Diablo III is just...meh. But then again, what can you Expect from Activi$ion-Bli$$ard?

    D3 doesnt even have a single computer or intranet mode, so I wont even play it once like I did for fun with D1.

    Sure. For the wiz, there are enough useful combo to keep my interest so far. And even some r less useful, it is already 10x more interesting than the add 10 points to this power type skill trees.

    I tried torchlight. D3 is much more fun for me. Better, and more skill design. Better environment (many things blow up or can interact). Better story, loot design.
