    I'm excited to play Diablo III, though I did not get it at the midnight release (I'm playing other games, and as a result saw no need to do so).

    Diablo I and II were really defining games in my childhood. Diablo I was the first PC game I was ever into. I was a hardcore Blizzard fanatic, but I was turned off by WoW. Online play generally doesn't appeal to me, and the sheer amount of time my friends spent on WoW made me adamant about not playing it for fear of doing the same.

    I'll bet I pick it up within the next couple weeks. Personally, I hope Mephisto makes an appearance and he's a bit more of a force. I always thought he was clearly the real main villain. Lord of Hatred was so much more thematically impressive than Lord of Destruction or Lord of Terror. Plus, if I remember right, he was the eldest of the three.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    I started playing Tera instead.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Has to do with ensuring game integrity: if they're going to monetize the sale of virtual items and currency they need to ensure that people aren't duping items or hacking the game in some way to get an advantage. It'd ruin the economy.

    No difference, other than the wonderful new-game smell.

    Cool. So I went ahead and got the digi copy last night, and have just set up my character (monk). Now as a noob, should I start single player or go multi player? I enjoy multi-player games more, but would it be more beneficial for me to play first in single player to get familiar?

    More of a personal choice than anything. I found that playing an open game with other people had a far faster pace and is better for when you're just grinding items/experience and not really concerned with exploring or the story. Playing alone affords you control over the pacing of the story or exploration without other players triggering story events you're not ready for. If you go the multiplayer route, the game ramps up monster difficulty depending on how many players are in your game, so it's never too easy, and there's no such thing as stealing loot because every player sees their own items drop from any monster killed.

    My first playthrough, I'll likely do solo or perhaps join some public games if I get too bored.

    Alright, it looks like I'll go single player my first time through.

    I booted it up and it doesn't run as smoothly as I thought it would, considering the graphics aren't over the top to begin with. I have a year old Macbook Pro. I guess I can't play with all my settings on high, which sucks because I much enjoy the visual aspect of games.

    If anyone has advice for which graphics settings to tweak/not tweak, lemme know. I haven't installed a computer game in years. hah
