    Wow, totally forgot about this game! I'll pick it up eventually

    Feels weird knowing that I already "bought" this.

    I mentioned it on the Runic forums in passing, but is this ever a bad release timing for me. Comes out right after I get back from a cruise and go straight into E3 madness XD
    It also sounds like some other games I'll be considerably more interested in may release around the same time.

    The moment this was announced I walked into my boss' office and asked for a week off starting that tuesday. It went through, and I now have about 2 months left to enjoy whatever else there is to do in this world before the game comes out.

    I hate to say it, but I'm much more interested in Torchlight II than I am in this. Blizzard waited too blasted long to release this. I might get it when it's below $60 but right now, there's more important things on my mind. I'm much more interested in The Last Story and Xenoblade right now to care about Diablo III. Don't get me wrong, I was all set to pick this up about two years ago, but that was two years ago. Now, it just looks aged and it might look better when I'm finished with ME 3, but I doubt it.

    Unless TL2 is a giant's head and shoulders above TL1, it won't come anywhere near D3, unless you're looking for an easier game that can be modded. Sure, they took their sweet time getting to this release date, but it's not like it's any different from any other Blizzard release. Also, it's not like they were literally sitting around with the gold version waiting to release it. I'd rather have a polished final version than some half-assed attempt that requires massive reworks, a la FFXIV.

    Have fun. When I last played the beta, the Witch Doctor was probably the most overpowered class, which should make it a good starting class.

    Looks like they took the beta down now. So I guess I'll wait for it to fall to $30 or so.

    Vanillaware’s 2D is, once again, shaming their competitor’s 3D. It’s like, what are you even doing with your extra D, jerks? Maybe we should hold that extra D in reserve for you, like a trust, until you are ready. - Tycho, Penny Arcade

    Witch Doctor overpowered! What?! They've been developing it for 15 years and they're gonna release it with balance issues? Unfreakingforgivable! They better have fixed that nonsense.

    I admit it has been a couple of months since I last played, so it's possible they rebalanced it. It may also diminish at higher levels, but it definitely had advantages early on.

    Uh yeah, the WD is not overpowered at all - in fact, at this point the game is a lot more balanced (and it pretty much comes down to how you play it instead).

    Good catch. Just another one of ActiBliz's cruel, cruel joke.

    Is it because the pets were tough enough to be a real threat to bosses, or is it his other spells?


    So do they still have skill synergy in this one? It'd be quite interesting if runes play into skill synergy as well.
