I've been playing D2X for about 4 years on and off. Got lost and played TQ for a bit when it came out (still can't get the map maker to work). I was going to get HGL but I think I missed something because I found out they were going to make it and then that the online server had closed...
Now I just trawl through D3 anouncements and, being a wierdo, play D'n'D
I first got introduced to D2 when I was about 5...in 2000 my brother (who was then about 12) used to play it. Later, when we moved we found some people who played LoD and had fairly high level characters. My first Diablo 2 character was a Barbarian who had a messed up skill build with a few points in almost everything. I played it on and off until about the age of 12 and also played some Diablo. Now, I'm REALLY excited that D3 is coming out.
Whoops, I haven't posted here, have I? I've been lurking diabloii.net for a pretty long time, I think I started visiting a few weeks after I started playing Diablo II.
I've been a big fan of Blizzard since Warcraft II, but I got into Diablo really late. I played through Diablo, D2, and LoD in sequence after buying the Battle Chest just after my first year of college in the summer of 2005. I've since graduated, but I still play co-op with mostly the same core group of people I know from high school and college, and I've soloed Hell with a few characters as well. Right now I'm just experimenting with different builds for fun and getting into the hype of Diablo III.
My favorite D1 class is the Sorcerer, my favorite D2 classes are the Druid, Barbarian, and Necromancer, and my favorite D3 class we've met so far is probably the Witch Doctor. And sorry if that's TL;DR, I'm wordy like that.
Another rookie 'ere... Well, rookie on these forums atleast, but no rookie when it comes to games. Not under any circumstances.
I'm Kristina. When I was 5, I got into games, thanks to my cousin who, dare I say, enlightened me by showing me this amazing activity. First game I ever played was Hexen II. I remember being afraid to die, being afraid of those darned knights in the courtyard... Silly kid as I was.
I got my first console at around 8. One of those super Sega consoles, with the original Super Mario and a dozen other games. First "Real" console I got after that was the PSX, at around the age of 11. Included in the box was Resident Evil 2, so I am very fond of that game series. I'm no stranger to most game series in fact, including Blizzard's. I played Starcraft at my cousin's when I was younger. I also got into Diablo and Diablo II, and have played those games excessively for many years. Then, several years ago, WoW came along, so I spent alot of time on that wonderful game... I'm shamed to admit it, but I never played the earlier Warcraft games, though I knew fairly well of them.
Anyway, I'm drawing this out far too much. Having been a fan of Diablo II, I am now completely stoked about Diablo III and eagerly await it's release date.
So, other than being a super-major-ultra-mega-nerd, I also go to college, like to write, watch geeky/funny shows, and am obsessed with the 90's.
I'm not going to detail every aspect of my life here, but I am an open and friendly person so if there's anything anyone wants to know, ask away.
Actually, i failed to introduce myself to this time, so hey, Doppel's the (nick)name.
I'm naturally critical of things i'm interested in, so don't be surprised when i'm outspokenly critical about an aspect of the game, which i'm very interested in. Hell, its probably one of my most anticipated games and that means something because my interest in many of today's games has been in decline since the Oblivion era.
Played Diablo 1 when it came out (even played the Butcher demo), D2 some time after its release, but i started gaming way before Blizzard even started the production on Diablo and when Windows didn't even exist, was green behind the ears back then though. I'm not that happy about many ways Diablo is turning into, but still can't wait to get my hands on it. Cya.
I first got to play Diablo sometime late 1990s (possibly its release year, since I remember it being a newly released game then), when visiting a friend of my younger brother.
I was allowed to try it out and I rolled a warrior. My brother's friend exclaimed that I was pretty good at it (which I found odd, because I assumed anyone playing with a bit of caution and using common sense would have an easy time playing this) .... And then I met the Butcher and with him, my end :P
Diablo 2, I eagerly anticipated, but considered the game a huge letdown (note: while the basics are similar, I find the playstyle is completely different) and quickly tired of it.
Occasionally gave it a chance, but quickly gave up again (Act 1 is pretty dull to get through if you bring your Diablo 1 tactics over).
For a long while, I didn't touch Diablo 2, but then I met a friend who taught me a few things that made it a lot more fun (mutliplayer Diablo 2 rules), so I've been playing it quite a lot lately.
Diablo 3 got announced and initially, I wasn't too interested, as I believed it'd probably move further away from Diablo 1's playstyle and just go with the Diablo 2 gameplay style, since the latter is more popular, and combine it with Warcraft 3/WoW graphics, but as I gradually picked up on new info, I started getting excited about it. Big time.
Currently, I'm generally rather pleased with Diablo 3's direction, though there are always things one would want to improve. I'll try not to whine, but I will not and cannot make any unconditional promises :P
(Not worried about the art though, since in some ways, it's already looking gloomier than Diablo 2).
Oh yah, and if this post haven't clued you in, I tend to write really large, really long posts, as I tend to have lots on my mind
