    I'm surprised it got it's own forum considering it's not an MMO.  But whatever...can't wait for this game!

    Doesn't really matter, cause its not like other MMOs are much different.  Mostly solo, and everyone gets funneled into instances to play in small groups...

     

    As for the release date, I'm still banking on Feb 29th 2012, with an announcement at this year's Blizzcon!

    Don't worry! It'll definitely be released some time in 2XXX!

    Well I can't agrue with that, it's true.  I also agree with your estimation on the release date..considering their betas are 4-6 months.

    Next WOW expansion and Diablo 3 release date are givens for Blizzcon. I also expect Starcraft 2 expansion to be announced.

    I think they will tease Titan but nothing major - no trailers or footage. We may get genre and style of game. The details will be next Blizzcon I think.

    They really just need to change the name of this site to RPG.com.   RPG.com applies to ALL rpgs whether they are MMOs or NOT, and that way there would be no more question about "what kind of games" deserve to have forums.

     

    Anxious for D3, can't wait to grow me up another sorc, it's been sooooo long.  Oh the memories and the memories of deaths and cows and cows and deaths.

     

    I also intend to play Torchlight.  Even though the games are similar, D3 is much darker, less colorful cartoony in graphic design and they play differently as well.  But, since they're both good dungeon crawlers in their own right.....I think I need to play both.

    Blizzard said there would be two more and if you believe the leaked product schedule, it has two more on the list. The list has been exceedingly accurate too by the way.

    Meh Imma get Torchlight 2 insted, its closer to diablo 2 and doesn't feel like a console game like diablo 3 might, it also is modable, and has offline and lan play. Has more features over diablo 3 as well from what I heard, oh and the best thing? no bullshit rmt AH crap, or forced online only gameplay.

    The more I read about diablo 3 the less interested in it I got, the rmt AH and online only gameplay was the final nail in the coffin for me. I like my games to be modable. and since d3 is online only you can forget mods (Blizz even said so bascally in one interview), which means it has very little replay value like your typical console rpg, twice maybe fun but the 3rd time it'll just be boring as hell, where as torchlight 2 will have mod support that can totally change the gameplay experence.

    This is the same reason I wouldn't buy Skyrim, Fallout 3, Oblivion, Fallout NV for/on a console. its far better on a PC due to modability, same for borderlands, Deus Ex, Dead Island, all are far superior on PC to their console counterparts due solely to the modding community adding stuff. Since diablo 3 probally can't be modded its just not worth my time or money to buy it.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    Aside from a select FEW games, what has modding done to really improve replay value?  Every little Fallout 3 mod I see just includes new guns and new naked chicks.  If changing the character and weapon models really gives you a whole new reason to play I have no way to relate to you.

    I've yet to see a legit excuse or argument against the real money auction house.  It isn't required by any means to play the game.  Players can and have always been buying gold from farm sites, what's the difference between buying gold, and then buying items off normal auction house and real money auction house?  Either way real money is buying the item...  Diablo 3 is a B2P (buy 2 play) game and they're offering online server and security for your characters "free" ... Maybe a penny or two from real auction house is a way to help cover costs?

    Blizzard has by far been the very best game developer on the planet.  You might not like their games as much as others but the quality has been top notch since day one. 

    TBH I feel like the only people really complaining about this real money auction house are likely people w/o jobs or the ability to use it.  And those people (without jobs) will have the time to farm the gear that other people who have jobs and are willing to spend money on the auction house would be buying.  Seems simple to me:

    No job, bitch about real money auction house...  Yet have the time to not need to use it anyway

    Have job, not bitching about real money auction house...  maybe want to use it

    Even better, someone without a real job could turn D3 into a job. Farm up all sorts of gear, and sell it on the RMT AH and make actual money. I have a friend who is planning on turning D3 into a part-time job of sorts.

    Why do you have to rain on our parade? First off i don't remember D2 being a colorful vibrant world so already TL2 isn't remotely close to diablo. Second i don't recall blizzard making a diablo2 clone like runic, i mean why make the same game just shinier when they can make a NEW game apart from the old.

    Mods rarely hold attention long so honestly that isn't a selling point for me. I buy a game to play the game i bought, i'm looking for something a bit more presistant. Also the core D2 is still active to this day 10+ years later with 20-60k players on everynight so i think blizzard can handle replayablity as they have with every game released to date.

    But hey to each their own, if "modding" is what you enjoy have at it.

    I have a job. Have for  20 years. I'm bitching about it and will not buy the game because of it.

    TBH I think the only people who aren't bitching about the RMT in Diablo 3 are very short sighted people who don't realize the implications this has for games down the road. What path might these dev's lead us down? If this is successful (and I have no doubts it likely will be) do the suits then try this with every  new game coming out? What's next? They are slowly trying to  lead us down a path. I'm not going there.

    You've seen no arguments about why it's bad? Well, why is it good? Who is it good for? Blizzard that's who. This has nothing to do with Blizzard wanting to help their player base from making transactions with seedy websites a thing of the past. This has everything with Blizzard wanting to cap as much money as they can every month. Tell me, do you think people will magically stop buying from places other than the RMT auction house? People go where ever the prices are lowest. They will still have all the same issues they said they had before. It's only about Blizzard and it's wallet. Don't think other wise or your just lying to yourself.

    What exactly is going to change? It is going from illegal to legal. Now people who stayed legit but were interested but followed the rules of fair gameplay can now LEGALLY purchase items they may want or need. Sorry this is a step in the right direction IN MY OPINION.

    I mean get over this omg rmt is legal bullshit. It was going to happen regardless and it would hamper gameplay MORE if it wasn't legalized. Ever play a game where illegal RMT was rampant and legit players couldn't play without extreme frustration? RMT has been here since the 90s and for some reason you think THIS is going to change the industry? lol a bit late for that don't ya think? Demand is everything and the demand for RMT is MASSIVE illegal or not. Atleast it isn't a P2W cash shop thats been taking hold, go bitch on those forums.

    As for blizzard using this to make money.. no shit? what does a business do.. uh make money. This whole idea that gaming should be a charity is sickening. You don't have to use it and is 100% optional. If people go to a 3rd party site for cheaper prices more power to them and when they get banned and or hacked GG buy another copy to further fuel the evil blizzard.

    Did i mention blizzard is going to post generated items on the AH that give players godlike powers? Oh also blizzard has been running 3rd party sites and hacking accounts since 1999.

    Multiplayer - Yup, in fact ONLY multiplayer

    Online - Yup!

    Role - For sure bro!

    Playing - Yup!

    Game - yup!

     

    Looks like an MMORPG to me!  They added League of Legends and HoN I think?  Among other titles.  Guildwars 1 is not an MMO by the standards that Diablo 3 isn't...  If no one considers it an MMO, no one will use the forums here for it, and won't matter anyway!

    WTF is with this WOW 2.o crap I keep seeing?  WoW has re-invented itself 2.5 times already. Jewelcrafting and sockets were nice to have in BC, but with the addition of glyphs, dual specs, the crossserver PVP and LFG tool it really became a new animal with the Lich King.  The core game were completely overhauled with Cataclysm.

     

    So its not WOW 2.0 its WOW 4.something

     

    If you are implying on how new games coming out with similar features to WOW and calling them WOW 2.0, you are a moron.

     

    Also the Real Money Tranaction auction house is optional, there will be another that uses in-game gold.
