Holy s*** the Diablo 3 Demo

Downloaded the Diablo 3 free demo on a lark last night and started playing.....and playing.....and playing. In total I ended up getting over 2 hours of playtime out of the demo. That's one long f***ing demo. :D

Kinda funny the PS3 demo version is already 10 times better then the full PC version.

give it some time for the devs to fix things. Overall, D3 is a good game hindered by its end game and loots (ironic!). If done right, it will surpass D2 provided that they first remove the DPS prioritization of the gameplay. As things stand now, any items you get and equip will solely depend on the amount of DPS it deals which kinds of sucks.

I really really hope Blizzard fixes it in the upcoming RoS expansion or any future expansions for that matter.

Who are you responding to? Because I don't see any posts above yours that make any comparisons to previous versions.

I wish I could go back and time and rediscover D2 all over again. I loved that game! Replayed it so many times it's almost embarrassing. What builds have you been using? My favorite was the sorceress focused on Frost Orb or the zealot Paladin. Bummer to see that there is no Paladin in D3. :(

Yeah, DL'ing now. Excite!
Fact: Every single episode of every TV show ever needs more Londo and G'Kar.

Sad part is, D3 gets worse as you play on. You enjoy it at first, you get through the game, get to the end, and then...repeat on a harder difficulty. And you keep repeating, it then becomes a grind, but the sad part is they don't disguise the grind as something else.

All RPGs have a grind, its inherent to what that genre of game is, but a good game gives you quests, and things to disguise the grind so you feel like you are doing something other than going around trying to get EXP or items. D3 doesn't do that very well and as you get through it you quickly realize its just one giant grind.
