    Blizzard just keeps on rocking the world.

    Personally, I'm waiting for StarCraft II, though.

    Do we know when this is likely to be out? It looks pretty cool. It's quite clever of Blizz to make a game which is essentially *click click click click click click* but make it addictive rather than repetive.

    It's rather silly how they've been denying buying that D3 domain a few weeks back due to working on D3...

    Looks rather juicy. The released material, I mean.

    I am so excited about this. Is it going to be free online play though - with the new battlenet and everything?

    Shouldn't buy..... not good for me.... must not have.... must... must... not... must... have... must have!

    I feel like the dumb man, walking on the street. He sees a banana skin on the street, 30 meters ahead and thinks: Oh no, there I go again.

    The dawn of a new era of Rouge games is borne.

    Wow I didn't even noticed we have a blizzard forum.

    Anyway, the game looks awesome. I hope it's a mix of diablo 1 and 2, with the loot system of 2.

    if you have a high-speed connection apeman go watch the gameplay trailer at www.gametrailers.com it shows some fights with both the barbarian & witch doctor class & 1 really cool boss. also being able to use the enviroment to kill enemies is nice. the barbarian collapses a wall on some zombies to kill them sweet!!

    But I do hope they find out a way to keep the game interesting for a while. To explain my previous post: I played it I4 or 5 times... build some nice characters and instant runs to get better items... After 2-3 months, I had great equipment and got tired of bossruns for even better, quit and let my character expire. You only play the quests once, later only the quests with interesting rewards... you level in 1 day to level 80... and then you just run all the time. I got boring too soon.

    Does anyone has an idea how they can prevent this in Diablo 3? :)

    How did you reach level 80 in one day?

    It certainly is possible to reach level 80 in one day, especially if you have higher level characters helping you out. I never did that though. I always felt obligated to do all the quests with each individual character, and actually level them in the way that they were meant to be leveled. Power leveling always seemed really cheesy to me - borderline cheating even.
