    Default Diablo 3 beta and release

    Just to inform you guys. You just need a battle.net account and a gametag (in your battle.net account)
    You can download the beta and play freely until the end of the week end.

    Played it today, it's pretty much like diablo 2 so far. It's also really easy got to level 5 in 20 minutes. The graphics also look horrid I hope that it's because it's an open beta.

    Nah I expect this is as good as they will get.

    I dont agree with you though. They aren't amazing, maybe not even good, but they arent "bad" either. They are fairly basic as blizzard want the game to be able to run on low-end systems. Im cool with it.

    Also, keep in mind how many enemies, friendlies, special effects etc will be on screen at a time in a full game.

    The graphics look outdated by 8-10 years I expected it to be at least on par with sc2.

    The appearance didn't bother me, but it very much feels like playing the original Diablos, in terms of graphics and play, etc, although maybe with more options in the environment.

    It was a fun diversion for a few hours this week. The barbarian was a badass -- I was mowing down baddies by what seemed to be the hundreds, wielding two blades at once.

    Not sure how interactivity with other players would work, didn't try anything like that.

    I got bored and started playing free WoW eventually, since it's hooked into Battlenet now. Just doing the trial run, although I had an active account for two years. I really don't want to start paying a monthly fee for it again, but it was kind of nostalgic to walk through the world again and interesting to see all the changes they added to help n00bs. For me personally, even in real life, I like to get out in the wilderness and wander around and explore, and a lot of the game can feel that way as well, which I like. Even if the stylized graphics are kind of getting outdated as well again.

    my feeling, too, is that if a game is really good, then graphics won't necessary distract from it (unless they're really godawful).

    like I said, I had fun playing both, even if they aren't the most current thing out right now. It's not like I won't go back and play Tomb Raider or SWKOTOR 1&2 just because they're a few years old, graphics-wise. Good games last.

    played it through with all characters(didnt level 13 tho), too bad the beta is so short.

    demon hunter > all, tho monk comes close.

    i like the graphics a lot. yes it has quite simple graphics, but the simplicity adds to playability.

    Dunno why the video got so dark and why mediacoder was unable to save the increase brightness settings.

    So will you guys be up for some D3 typoc jolly co-operation once the game comes out?

    Cry aye if you are up for it!

    One thing that most strikes me when playing the beta is how easy the game is. I know that this is just normal mode, and that there are many additional, harder, modes to choose from. But I hear that in order to unlock the next hardest mode the player has to first complete the game on normal. Thats less than cool.
