WTF do they want full-time IP connection for SP? That's just stupid. Or evil, depending why they want it.

Reckon I'll be waiting for an explanation and/or fix before I purchase, now.


Hang on hang on ... isn't this using hte BNET2.0 system? If so isn't that the SAME system as Starcraft 2? And if it is, then yes you need net connection to create your account ... then that's it. You can sign in offline any time you want.

Well ok. That is not what was said in the first place - much more acceptable.

If that's the case, that's REALLY bad :(

"We thought about this quite a bit," said executive producer Rob Pardo earlier this week. "One of the things that we felt was really import was that if you did play offline, if we allowed for that experience, you’d start a character, you’d get him all the way to level 20 or level 30 or level 40 or what have you, and then at that point you might decide to want to venture onto Battle.net. But you’d have to start a character from scratch, because there’d be no way for us to guarantee no cheats were involved, if we let you play on the client and then take that character online."


please tell my if i'm wrong (hope i am), this is from a long time ago - though i've seen people complaining of always on connection recently.

pppffffffttt.... They could demand that I ride a giant dildo attached to a jackhammer that is set to full speed at all times while playing D3 and I would still be buying this game ( already have actually, bought the game that is, not ridden a giant jackhammer dildo ).

Wow Cybes, a bit slow there. This has been news for over a year. I doubt very much that you will get a "FIX" either for it as from what the beta suggests that all the AI and loot are handled server side so even if there was a 'FIX" you would have no loot and the monsters would not do much. :D

TBH, I don't see a problem with having to start a new character for online play. That's the way Sacred 2 (and, I think, every other game that could do this sort of thing) has done it. It worked, and nobody playing chucked a fit over it.

Yeah, well I'm getting the 'news' from here - not reading all the gaming sites. I do actually do other things apart from play games. :P

Anyone still after the Collectors Edition, I discovered a place you can order it at for $99 USD and have it sent here...Not sure on the shipping but it is a huge retail store in the US.

Anyway here is the link. http://www.frys.com/product/6969587?site=s...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Pre-ordering it tomorrow most probably.

How trustworthy are they?

Have you dealt business with them before?

Seems kinda odd how they specialize in electronics yet they do the preorder of games like this and yet it still hasn't run out in America of all places..

Maybe I'm just too paranoid.

Game's not region locked right?

Not region locked.

Haven't used them before, but they are a huge retail store in America.

There was another American store that still had it for sale that owns Kmart but I can't remember the name...You could buy it from them still but had to make an account which i couldn't be bothered. Cost just a bit more anyway...From them.

Well, in order to play the Beta, you need to log in to battle.net to get your hero list.

Haven't tried pulling the plug while playing, will give that a go tonight.


Better read the EULA too, and see what I can actually post here for you guys...


Edit:

Disable my NIC = no play! And doesn't seem to be a way to take it offline.

And it's NDA free, so send me your questions (bearing in mind I never played Diablo past the first town before).

Blizzard confirmed well over a year ago that Diablo III would require a consistent net connection to play.
Struck me as a little odd at first, then got over it.

Sure, it's a little annoying, but not insurmountable.

phew! yeah glad I wasn't making it up! The requirement for constant internet connection I can live with to be honest. It is just the way things are going. However it would be incredibly frustrating when the connection goes down and you cant play, so I'm glad I'm not with Telstra :P

Yeah, I thought I'd heard that somewhere, but then wondered if I was confusing it with Starcraft. It's not something I actually noticed until I started reading here.

The download, for those interested is around 7GB for the retail release, Beta was a bit less than 3GB.

Played through with a Wizard, Monk, Demon Hunter and Witch Doctor. Except for the Monk, they all feel kind of the same, it's just Magic vs Arrows at a distance, the monk is melee attacks. But it's all a whole lot of clickety clickety, clickety clickety, clickety clickety, clickety clickety, clickety clickety, clickety clickety, clickety clickety.

I really would like to use WASD for movement. Feel like I'm going to need a new mouse if I want to play this through 60 levels.

The Tristram story is really good, I want to see how it all ends, and I like the extra bits you get from finding parts of journals around the dungeons. But in the Beta, the heroes stories aren't fleshed out much at all. I'm hoping that happens as you go further. I want to know more about where they come from, and what they're looking for, but all you get from the beta is that they're hunting the fallen star.

It all appears to work pretty well, except if you have crap internet. When maxing my connection with downloads, movement gets a bit rubberbandy, and attacks take a while to happen. Which I guess is what you'd expect. The servers are in the US I belive, but I don't normally notice any lag.

I gave up trying to play via my 3g internet lots of lag and disconnects, but I do have crap reception at home.
