Holy shish kebabs , we actually got a release date and it's pretty soon!

Gonna wait and see what the collectors edition will offer.

Also any idea if they're gonna bring an expansion pack to this?


Could have sworn they announced a collectors edition pack, but it may have been US only as I can't find anything on EB.

I'm actually disappointed with the class offerings, even though I'm sure some badass shit will come in the expansion. Witch doctor or demon hunter I think il try

I haven't even really looked into the classes yet, I think I'll do that a few days before release.

Barbarian is the most appealing to me from the get go, but due to the friend i'm playing with wanting to play Monk, I guess I will get forced into a ranged hero. I didn't particularly like the hunter in the BETA, so a Wizzard will likely be my final pick.

Haha I know, but it usually doesn't make a whole bunch of sense to have two melee heroes running around next to each other. I'll see how it all goes and decide after playing them all for a bit in co-op most likely. All of the heroes are fun and different enough to enjoy multiple times through, I'll likely make one of each eventually. So do many of you guys play "end game" Diablo. Which is basically running boss fights over and over again with high "magic find" items equipped?

Last time i went for a bit of nostalgia the resolution was so bad it drove me away (amazing the advances that have been made in a decade!). I probably should have looked for mods that increase viewable area or res - not sure if these exist.

There are a couple of mods around that increase the resolution, they are a nice improvement over the vanilla game, but still not much to look at compared to most of todays games. I used to play D2 every night, and had 3 max level characters, which were all equipped in largely the best available gear with Ahnk(?) charms (the ones with +1 to all spells) filling out the majority of my inventory. Probably sank over 800 hours into that game.

Due to it being all 2D sprites and what not (Although I think there was some OpenGL 3D in there) upping the resolution on D2 meant that it didn't exactly scale and it just zoomed you further out from everything, which made the textures and sprites look a bit sharper, but also made it harder to see and iirc those types of mods werent allowed on battlenet because it gave players with higher resolutions a huge advantage in PVP.

Yeah somehow i thought it wouldnt be so simple, hard enough to pick up somethings on the normal res, ha ha. I was forever holding ALT key to make sure i didnt miss anything important. Unco, I totally forgot about the charms, they were a pain in the ass, i sacrificed 90% of inventory space to those bloody things! Here's hoping there is a better solution in D3 like a seperate smaller inventory section for charms or something.

You're fucking kidding, right? It's been over a decade between Diablo games and you're *already* wanting the NEXT thing? Jesus, man. Just be fucking happy you got this!

Nonono thats not what I intend.

I'm just wondering how worthwhile this purchase is gonna be if they're gonna bring (a possibly really big) expansion pack given my experience with how rich and different Warcraft 3 was to Frozen Throne and etc.

Wanting the next thing when the thing before it didn't even come out would be a really silly mindset. I doubt anybody would think like that given that this is Diablo 3.

Diablo 2 had an expansion, but it was different to the standard expansion pack fare.

Are you familiar with the way an expansion pack for the Sims 3 works? (You know, you can continue to install expansions on top of each other with each one adding to the game, but at its base youre still playing Vanilla Sims 3 with added features) Diablo 2's expansion was very similar in that regard.

Yeah my bad, I'll admit I wasn't totally in touch with the concept of expansion packs. I'm just too used to seeing expansions packs delier so much and become stand alone ones like Operation Arrowhead and Fall of the Samurai.
