    D3 went into F&F (friends and family) Beta a day or so ago. Not sure when other invites will go out, but if you're interested, make sure your account reflects you're interested in the Diablo Universe betas.

    After SC2, Blizz is on my shat-list. I'll wait until reviews come in before buying it.

    Why wait? I mean, I put that vid on HD, maximized screen and aside from the pretty graphics (SC2) it's the same old shit? Different dungeons, of course, and such but...5 years in development for this?

    Yeah, no kidding. I figured though, if the reviews come in and they're stellar, then I'd give it a whirl. I'm not terribly excited though.

    Agreed. The only thing that would make me buy and play is that if the rest of my friends -- mostly people on GA -- would do the same.

    I have absolutely no interest in it. Especially when they came out with the AH for real cash.

    OK. I'm enjoying this. Leveled up a Monk to LVL 6. The game play is identical to D2 in many ways. The graphics and audible atmosphere are awesome. The visual vertical layering of the dungeons is pretty cool; you can see a few floors below you on most levels.

    I'm not thrilled with the item interaction. I haven't found the key assignment that allows me to highlight the item name for the item drops. Gold automatically picks up when you walk over it. Items do not.

    The skill levels are different. You don't have access to all of your skills unless you are at an altar. If you'r enot at an altar, you're not switching skills. This is stupid IMO.

    Overall it's mildly entertaining, but nothing really new here expect for the pretty graphics.

    I did, I just thought you put in the wrong thread. That you got in the SWTOR beta. ;)

    LOL. Nope. This is for D3 (obviously). Wish I could send out invites.

    If anyone is dying for a beta invite, let me know and I'll see if I can scrounge one or two invites.

    I've been in beta since back in November and still don't know of a way to invite anyone. It's simple luck of the draw at this point I think.

    It's still a case of "you gotta know someone". I put the word in, we'll see if anything shakes loose.
