This one looks more like a D2 sequel than D3.

Screw the video look at those awesome pc specs o.O


Nvidia or GTFO!

(just kidding)



I'll stick with D3. And I don't have time to watch the video ;p But I will post...for reasons unknown.

And besides, nothing wrong with a constant internet connection. Just have internet above 15mbps and you will be doing just fine. ;p

And do you really need that many SSDs?

And I feel happy knowing my memory matches yours :)



I will have to give torchlight 1 a try and than this. I love diablo but the allways on line is killing it for me. If there is an alternative i would like to support it.

didn't justify the cost when I was going for a 2 card setup, if I go for single card though, Nvidia for sure.

My internet is like 35/35 lol, but yeah, I love how all my games load in seconds, so it's really nice to have that big a drive with all my steam and other games on it. The only things I changed was the CPU and Mobo other than the recent SSD upgrade, and since I'm not going to OC anymore, it seemed pointless to buy new memory since 1600 is the standard for Ivy Bridge.

I have no problem with online only, if it's stable, I'm sure Blizzard will figure it out in time, it's just that I don't feel like I'm having fun when it's D3 but with T2, it's like I'm just having a blast, maybe it's because the game(D3) feels too dark.



Torchlight's aesthetics always appeared as though they borrow more heavily from WoW than D3. I always found that extremely odd, nothing wrong with that of course.

Also there's nothing wrong with actually playing more than one game in a genre. When people throw out statements like 'D3 who?', I'm reminded of the hilarious apples and grapes analogy.

As the game is only $20 I'll definitely be picking it up at launch. Also have backed Grim Dawn on kickstarter.

that's because I have a million games to play and I'd rather invest in only 1 game in 1 genre at a time, just need 1 shooter, 1 mmorpg, 1 jrpg, 1 dungeon crawler, 1 of whichever at a time until I'm done and moving to the next one. No time, and you know they did something right when I feel time spent in a beta is more pleasent than a retail release. Grim Dawn looks cool since I did play titan quest, will have to see what it's like on release.

I do not mind playing more than one game in a genre either. I am looking forward to both Torchlight 2 as well as backing Grim Dawn on Kickstarter. However, I was extremely disappointed with Diablo 3. The lag, disconnects, simple gameplay, and lack of individualization just killed the game for me.
