    Diablo 3...

    It's coming out, who's ready for it? I have not played Diablo 2 LOD for a very, very long time. Years, even, and now, I don't think my current machine (which is a laptop I got when I was in school) can handle newer games anymore, it lags even on the lowest settings for Starcraft 2.

    Who's getting a new machine / rigging a new one, just like me?

    :)

    Got this rig less then a year ago so I doubt it will need any upgrading for a few years at least. However if my DL speed for the D3 client will not speed up it may very well be September before the game downloads.

    I'm all set. My rig is fairly new and my net connect is 35/35 Fios. Pre-ordered and ready to go the second it's released. :)

    I plan to be playing quite literally the second it's released, and taking a day off work as required to get a really good run through right off the bat. Interested in collaborating? ;)

    As its a Tuesday release and a normal work day for me, I probably wont be on until way later that night most likely.

    Same, I cannot wait to leave work, come home, eat dinner and play until 2AM though. My rig will be setup by then. :D

    I plan on playing until my computer fans tick me off. So I'll need to pause and find a pair of headphones.

    Forget midnight Pacific. Hope for midnight EST. I'd rather play on the 14th :p.

    I don't know how easy it will be to play HC off the bat. I think they'll be instilling some sort of limit or requirement to beat normal mode. We'll see.

    I'd rather start playing at 3 AM my time (Eastern). I can go to bed early and get some sleep before I play through that initial marathon.

    Re: Diablo 3...

    I find myself just not compelled to buy the game yet. If I can download the client and play this weekend I may change my mind. It just seems like they have dumbed it down to me. I have really enjoyed coming back to D2 after a long time off

    Re: Diablo 3...

    Managed to have a play. No stat point allocation and I'm not too happy about skillpoint placement but apart from that, it's pretty much captured the essence of Diablo but with the game play of Titan Quest! That's my initial feeling.

    EDIT: Ah there is stat point allocation! There is an option in settings to turn on "Elective Mode".

    EDIT2: No there isn't. You cannot allocate points to str, dex etc. Skill tree is not as good but it is still rather polished.
