    So verdict, how is the game? I haven't played the beta or anything. The full game releases in a few days.

    The biggest complaints I have heard are 1) it was too easy, and 2) the graphics are unimpressive.

    In response to 1, It was a beta... They only had "normal mode" available, which is the easiest mode. Normal, Nightmare, Hell, and Inferno are the difficulties. As expected, the greater difficulties reap greater rewards. I don't think anyone is going to be complaining about it being too easy when they try Inferno, yet those who wish to only play very casually won't find themselves overwhelmed if they want to play on normal.

    2 is personal preference. I'm not a stickler for graphics, so I don't care. I understand that Blizzard wants to make the game playable on older machines in order to appeal to a wider demographic.

    I loved the gameplay. I'm excited. I have purposely jacked up my sleep schedule so that I'm sleeping in the evening and waking up around ~2am, so that on Tuesday, I can wake up and pull a 48-hour energy-drink-infused gaming binge. One of the dudes I roll with is hell-bent on world first level 60, and also very interested on trying to make money in the real money auction house by acquiring high level items first. I'm interested to see how much it's possible to make.

    Nice, nice.

    Have you decided on which class you're going to play with yet?

    Demon Hunter is definitely going to be my main. I also like Monk very much, so that will probably be an alt.

    As much as I said I wouldn't buy the game and just get Torchlight II instead, I have zero willpower and will most likely buy it anyways because I'll be bored. Oh wellz.

    So I only played D2 briefly. Are the Diablo games pretty in-depth and time consuming? A lot to do that gives the game good lasting value (like WoW, etc.) or does it go pretty quick?

    Lots of lasting value and they tend to be pretty deep. Keep in mind to play the game, even in single player, you'll need to have active internet connection at all times.

    Cool. Why does it require internet connection even on single player? Is it mainly to keep a real-time log of progress, stats, etc?

    Also, is there really much of an advantage or disadvantage in getting the downloadable digital copy online vice picking up a hard copy at the store?
