    Hahaha, that's too bad.

    You skip something important to play a video game, it doesn't go the way you expected it to, deal with it.

    Disconfirmed expectations lead to confusion. Confusion can lead to sorrow and wrath.

    And wrath can lead to the Dark Side.

    I'll save my moneys and wait for Torchlight 2

    The pressure is turning up on Torchlight 2, I wonder how Runic feels about this?

    I am loving d3. Really don't see what's wrong. Nice and smooth and connection straight away.

    Plus the collector's edition is awesome. a real work of art.

    The whole thing here is that with both of these games Blizzard's #1 priority has been to provide an update without ruining what was great about the original. In that respect they've done an amazing job. The core fans of the games still love them. All they really did was breathe new life into old communities. You don't hear the same crap you do here where large swaths of the community think the devs ruined the series.

    Maybe the addictive aspect of the Diablo series they managed to keep, but still, I was a core fan of the Diablo series and I don't love d3. :p Oh well, I can't do anything about it, just move on and hope for something else like Torchlight 2. :D

    Kind of makes sense this way too since Torchlight 2 has the D1 and D2 devs working on it and Diablo 3 has only new people working on it. I guess it's to be expected.

    So, I like this game; but this online-only shit was the worst idea. The worst. Also I beat Normal in 18 1/2 hours, going at a fairly brisk pace but by no means speed-running.

    Everyone who is giving this game anything less than an average score is butthurt by the online-only. It's a solid online game with a disastrous launch.

    It took me 8 hours to beat the first act, and I make sure I explore every area and kill every monster. To beat the game on the highest difficulty though will take some effort I'm sure.

    Also, while I still think that sometimes things look a little WarCraft-ish, whoever said this game wasn't going to be dark enough was just plain wrong. I remember those long nights playing in the dark. Always thinking there might be something else in the room with me. Those torture levels have every bit of that feeling and more. I hope it continues to get darker in the other chapters.

    I'll go ahead and confirm that yes, it gets darker. http://i.imgur.com/sftFg.jpg (cropped screenshot of mine from later in the game...)

    Just beat the game on Normal and started on Nightmare straight away :p

    Ended at level 33 with 23h45m on the clock. Everything was amazing. Now the journey to level 60 and epic lootz continues. :)

    You just spent 24 hours out of 72 total playing a video game. Go outside.

    Anyone else feels like the linear design of this game is kind of problematic in the long run? I've seen Torchlight and Path of Exile work on different things to solve this problem.

    You're going to have to elaborate on what you mean here. The only linear part about the game is progression of the story quests. Everything in-between is randomized every time you start a game, including dungeon layouts, enemy spawns, random events, etc.

    Found out yesterday morning that running my internet connection directly from modem to PC instead of through my router makes it so the game doesn't constantly disconnect, and then found out it was 2:30 AM all of a sudden and I'd just beaten act 2 on Normal. When it works, this game is awesome.
