    Beta Impression by Someone Who Actually Matters

    I've played D1 & 2 far more than someone who isn't an obsessive autistic should, and still I revisit both of them yearly. In fact, basically the only reason I'm still running Windows XP is so I don't have to go through all the extra bull**** to play D1.


    I finally got to play the beta I should have had access to from day 1, but didn't until last night.


    I started with a barbarian because all of the other classes suck from a lore standpoint. Now that I've tried all of the classes, the barbarian remains my favorite. However, the monk is a lot of fun too, and the demon hunter (even though I think they embody everything that is wrong with how they're approaching the story now) is quite fun to me as well.

    Now that I've played through the beta (a lot of times) I've been thinking about all of the negative things that I can recall, and conveniently I was forwarded to a terrible thread written by some idiot that basically sums up all of the complaints about D3. And as a long time Diablo player, I felt I should reinforce how stupid these complaints are.

    Here is the link to the actual thread if you think I'm just making this kind of idiocy up:

    He goes on to talk about how making friends in D3 will be more difficult without this game search. If you spent any time at all looking for friends in D2 then you're a sad person. I don't play video games to make friends, I play video games cause I actually think they're fun to play, what a ridiculous concept right?

    Leveling up stats was probably the most pointless thing in the world in both D1 & 2, there were several times where I didn't even bother leveling up my stats until I found an item that required me to have a certain stat. So the D3 devs trimmed the fat? omg **** game

    lol "massive." good joke. Here's how the skill-tree worked: you either followed a cookie cutter build in order to be viable at all in pvp or Hell difficulty, or you set out on your own and became completely useless after nightmare. D3 cut out more useless decisions? omg simplified casual game

    They're just as random as D2. This guy apparently expects dungeons to be labyrinths.

    I had no problem with the minimap. It might be too small if you're as visually impaired as you are mentally, but in D1 & 2 I felt that if I didn't have the minimap covering the center of the screen I was blind, and if I did the screen was too cluttered. The way it is now is perfect.

    If you had any trouble the first 1-13 levels in D2 normal difficulty then you have bigger problems than a game being "easy." Like mental retardation.

    You don't run out of resources in the beginning of the game where typically only 1 skill cast will kill an enemy? FOR RILL?

    This complaint is basically "Omg you don't have to do differential equations to figure out how good an item is? stupid casual noob game." if I need to elaborate further on why this is idiotic then you're already a lost cause.

    It's as "dark" as D2.

    several of the classes are idiotic from a lore standpoint but the gameplay isn't dull.

    This is purely taste.

    There's also a thread about how the skill switch stuff on the fly will kill the longevity of the game because you don't have to make an entirely new class when you **** up. If you think that making a new class was part of the reason D2 was so replayable then you obviously have more time than brains because that was a massive design flaw.

    D3 is a good game, the worst parts of it will easily be the ridiculously predictable story, the designed by a 12-year-old-who-just-figured-out-what-to-do-with-an-erection end game armor, and the terrible cheesy dialogue.

    I actually agree with most if not all of what Septar posted. Wonder if I should see a Doctor?

    Damn, I thought you matter since you are successful in the real world, like a designer or a businessman. Apparently, you matter because you play D1 on XP. XD

    I dunno. The complaints about the map are valid. Why can't I move when I open the full map?

    How quaint. I suppose, you do matter, since you managed to draw my attention for about 27 seconds.

    If you don't take this thread too seriously, you can actually have a good laugh. Very amusingly written and actually quite a few valid points...
