    I'm absolutely looking forward to Diablo 3, I really hope they can make it as close to crack as Diablo 2 was.

    You're just getting into beta now sonic? Welcome to the club ;D
    Admittedly I've not fired it up in a good while but I'm still churning through Mass Effect 3, Tera and... something else.
    I've already played the first chapter to death but they do switch things up a lot so it's probably worth seeing what they've done with the runes and stuff :o

    Beta has been going on for quite some time now.

    Too bad it's just a small portion of the game. Highly-anticipating launch.

    From what I hear about it, it's not really a beta. It's an invite-only demo.

    The D3 beta is basically a server stress test.

    Open beta starting today. Also I noticed they brought back the monk so my wish comes true.

    It's not an easy balance to achieve, but we do want to make a game that will be both the best competitive game since Starcraft and also one that many people can enjoy casually without being in a clan or an experienced or knowledgeable NS player. That's the goal at least!

    ok i'm not sexist or racist or anything silly like that but when I play RPGs I always pick a middle-aged white guy with hair but no beard.

    and that leaves me with zero classes to choose from in D3.

    Haven't been following the game at all but a quick look on a D3 wiki shows that the Demon Hunter class seems to be the least stupid looking.

    Female monk is the best class.

    Incorrect.

    Jamaican Witch Doctor is the best class.

    I'm eagerly awaiting throwing more jars full of spiders at enemies. Diablo 3 the 15th, Dragon's Dogma the 25th, can't wait.

    How does this even make sense? Diablo takes place in Europe during the Middle ages, how did these Jamaican's find their way there? Can they town portal across the Atlantic?

    Further these Jamaicans seem to be of an African decent rather then the indigenous groups meaning this would have had to have happened after the Atlantic slave trade (16th century)

    WTF?

    The game takes place in Sanctuary, the dark fantasy world of the Diablo series.

    But 16th century Jamaica is in this fantasy world? It is either the real world or a fake world, I do not accept this half and half business.

    It's a fictional world and they're not really jamaican. But like all fictional worlds, it is inspired by the real world.

    Played through all classes during open beta with a friend and I gotta say Monk, Witch and Barb seem like the most fun ones to play. Sorcerer didn't have anything "fun" and Demon hunter was all support-and-slow-while-dodging-all-the-enemies-he/she-cant-handle, a real survivor but oh so..indirect.

    I hope switching hand with weapons not showing on the model is just a bug or unimplemented feature.

    I also found something neat: http://darkd3.com/ - Darker D3 pixel shader so you can grimdark the ###### out of your D3 experience!
    A doctor in the Medical Wing with one blank eye beat me to death with a rake, shouting “It’s just... a standard... procedure!,” then made a verbal note of my time of death.

    Frankly, the kind of people who think D3 isn't grimderp ENOUGH are probably the kind that also think living in the 40k universe would be AWESOME. "I'd be a super space marine, it'd be so cool!" No. You wouldn't. You'd be brainwashed into a genestealer cult and then virusbombed into sludge by your own side.
