     Last I saw it was in a London underground train station, some kid had it.

    Hope that helps.

    MMORPG

     

    Massivly - Yup, lots and lots of people will be playing Diablo 3

    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!

    I really get tired of telling people this. Massively and multiplayer are not two separate qualifications. Massively is an adjective attached to multiplayer. An MMORPG isn't massively and multiplayer, it's massively multiplayer. In other words, there are hundreds of people wandering around doing their own thing that can choose to have nothing to do with you.

    And I would be glad to kick GW off the site if Diablo 3 went as well.

    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.

    Adding features does not mean a game has been reinvented.  All of WoW is considered to be WoW 1.0.  Just like EQ2 isnt called EQ6 or 8 or 10.

    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.

    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

    Surely you jest ? Mods extend the life of single player & multiplayer through various means.

    Quake - plethora of mods

    Halflife - plethora of mods, Counterstrike is still kicking.

    Morrowind - graphics overhaul mod

    Oblivion - graphics overhaul mod

    Torchlight - graphics overhaul mod

    Neverwinter Night 1 & 2 - Community content packs, persistant worlds & entire edventures.

    And the list goes on and on really those 5 were straight off the top of my head. Graphics overhaul mods extend the shelf life of games, people still pick these games up on steam today & then apply the overhaul mods to make them feel more current generation. Games that have a multiplayer component & do not allow modifications usually find they have a very short shelf life.

    NWN1 is still alive & kicking with a strong community, why ? because it allows modification and the reason NWN2 community never got as big was because it stifled modifications.

    I've found D2 to have better replayability than most true mmos released today, and it's 10+ years old.  Since replayability is a staple of mmos to me, I find D2 more of a mmo than most true mmos.

     

    A well deserved forum.

    Replayability is not in the definition of MMO.

    It might be his, several words, terms and phrases have different meanings to different people. Either way i also believe an MMO is defined by its replayability, without it the game will cease to exist.

    That said he didn't say anything about definitions.

    Someone said it had little replay value?  Yes, I believe they were talking about Diablo 3.  Let's take a quick trip back in time to when Diablo 2 was no longer being played due to not being moddable.  Oh wait, people are still playing it you say?  The battle-net servers aren't moddable you say?  Is there a difference?  No, you say? 

     

    Got my point?  It's still going to be a huge hit, probably the biggest in quite a while.  RMT's happened whether anyone wanted to admit it or not.  AH is a great addition, it eliminates the annoying server hopping I had to do in able to try and trade for something I wanted.

     

    It's still going to retain years of replayability. 

     

    As far as Diablo 3 having it's own section here on MMORPG.com... well I'm technically in the minority when I believe it shouldn't be here.  Problem is, this is the same route businesses go down with their customers.  They complain too much and the decision makers can't stay true to their original design.  Eventually the players get their way and the integrity of the product takes a hit in the process.  I have no respect for a company that sells out, and that's what MMORPG.com is doing with this decision.  But, a lot of people post here so I have to stay where the community is.

    Neither Diablo 3 NOR Guild Wars 1 are MMOs and no administrator of this site or developer of EITHER of those games has ever said otherwise.  Just because they're including it here does not mean it's suddenly and magically become an MMO.  They are including it because of it's popularity among MMO players.

     

    So anyway....quit trying to define D3 as an MMO.  That's ridiculous and everyone knows it.  The site administrators here won't even call it that.  They've already explained in another thread why they're including it here.

     

    By the way, unless you consider like 16 people to be "massively multiplayer," you using that for the word massively in the acronym is a joke.  If you think it's an MMORPG....link me to Blizzard referring to their OWN game, meaning Diablo 3, as such.  Good luck on that.

     

    There are a LOT of games included on the games list on this site that are not MMORPGs, incidentally.  I don't see the big deal anymore.  The site admins will do what they want to do to make the site the most appealing to their target audience of gamers.
