    • Well I finally played it.

      Two really positive things: Combat is fantastic! Fun, intense and general good ride. The other, so far, is the immersion in the story from the animations to speech to characters so far. I'm nearing the end of act one, I think... I'm looking forward to the crafting system being cool.

      Two things I'm indifferent to: The areas seem to be guiding me on rails so far. I'm not a fan of being led around by the nose, and I had the same indifference with the TQ did it as well. There isn't much room for side quests, but the odd side dungeon is a nice touch. The second is the skill system. When do I get to make choices? It seems like the only thing I get to choose are ... passives? Skill runes aren't that special. The skills, along with stats on level remind of playing Final Fantasy. There isn't really anything special to leveling up; but you'll notice it eventually.

      I really dislike the auto online so far because of Error: 37. If I can't connect then I can't play. What a crock of shit that is. My connection is strong and about average for residential: 768kb/s is what we're set up on.


      Other than that, having fun so far.

      Cheers,

      Malph
      It may also be surprising to know that some players prefer different play-styles.
      It is not censorship, it is called Whack a mole.
      I guess it only makes sense for Ghosts'n Goblins to go online. I mean, online is the current realm of people running around in their underwear, and Ghosts'n Goblins pretty much invented running around in your underwear.

      • I died.. on normal. In act II..
        Some guy was digging, told me we'd be safe if we didn't disturb the ship wreck and naturally I started to pound on it. Bloated fallen arrived and before I could do anything I was dead. Turns out one bloated fallen exploding took more than half my life and three had exploded in my face.

            Haha, curiosity kills the cat xDD Good for you that the Diablo 3 death penalty is extremely little, only takes away durability, not even EXP.

            Which region do you want to play together on? Skellt plays on the amercias while Mindray plays on Europe :/ I play on The Americas, but I don't mind changing region because we start a new character anyways.

            • Played a little bit further then the open beta. I got to level 12 with my monk and i'm really enjoying the game.

              At first the fact you couldn't personalise the skill tree was really annoying but the fact that i don't know the skills yet and can change at any time really removes the fact that you need to reroll a dozen of times untill you get a good character.

              • Finished act 1 yesterday and man dat cutscene. Also pretty proud (in a pretty nerdy way~) of how I called it regarding the big reveal on the fallen star. Being a Diablo lore buff is maybe not the most useful type of buff, but I'll take it.

                I'm playing on hc with the person I play the most with, and we switch to regular chars when the rest of the squad comes on. A funny sideeffect with this is how my hc char is my highest one, and it's really fun not knowing what to expect since it's where I'm seeing the content for the first time. I keep waiting for something equivalent to the D2 lightning scarabs where everything is going fine and your entire party gets wiped in a split second.

                Definitely had a lot of really close calls, even while using potions. Starting to see some "grabs" as well where the mob will grapple your character for a couple of seconds which blew my mind a little bit.

                  • Yeah, those guys can be scary. At first I thought the little mosquito conga lines were mobs - I kept almost dying trying to punch them with my barb.

                        haha i thought they were scenery just like the ants and crap on the floor.. but i found it odd that they were all in a line...

                        so i ran into them... needless to say, things did not end well

                        It sucks that people are having issues, i dont know why tbh i personally had like no issues at all.. if any.

                        Maybe having the Bnet autentificator helps the log in? (on my iphone)

                        Because i really only had issues connecting at 3:01 on my 15th, anytime after that was smooth, granted i played in specific hours.. i had no issues, other than the two nights they took down servers for maintenance

                        • So far the worst enemies for me have been the poison guys with the long arm/tentacles and the head hunters (or whatever they are called in act III).

                            I got page 42. No idea what it's for though. Looks a bit like the gem working pages but I don't really think there's a connection though.

                            Just started on nightmare. Whoever did normal on 10 hours as I've heard must have just run straight through, I spent somewhere around 20-30 hours. The story wasn't as great as I'd hoped though, but it'll do.

                            • There's IV acts correct? Anyways even though I'm getting close to the end of act III I've already played like 15 hours. If there's another act as well, I could see it taking at least 20-22 hours to get through. I'm not even the type of gamer that explores every single area fully.

                              Honestly the folks getting through at 10 hours must have run through the game at breakneck speeds.

                              • Yes four acts but act IV really doesn't feel like it's nearly as long as the other acts.
