Thanks everybody, I am glad to see that I appear to have some sort of clue of what I'm talking about seeing as how most of these responses are what I figured. Good news is I'm happy to see a helpful and positive community here. I am thrilled to hear (on youtube) that there's more beta codes being given out!! So I think i'll see if i can borrow a friend's copy of D2 and try it out for now and continue watching and learning as much as I can about D3 and the lore. The lore really does interest me, looking at the books as well... think I know the overall story so far, but being a HUGE Halo fan and knowing as much as I do about that franchise I'm sure a story that's been around twice as long has just as deep a story...Posted in: Diablo II

So I've only recently (last two months) discovered Diablo as a franchise. I've been roughly familiar with it but never understood it's appeal. I am relatively new to Blizzard games in general. I've always known they were there and were apparently some of the greatest games ever made, however I've never been much of a computer gamer (Xbox fan mostly) but I've finally jumped into the Blizzard world with SC2 and WOW in the last year. SC2 is still and enigma and I'm probably only going to finish the campaign and play random PvC matches from time to time afterward. I'm starting a whole new WOW character and mostly want to just take my time and soak in the lore in that area. Essentially both games don't scratch that itch. Which brings me to D3. I recently tried Torchlight on the PC. Wow. That was awesome. This is the experience I have been looking for, and Diablo 3 seems to be the EXACTLY ideal game for me... so my question is this. Should I even bother with D1 and D2 if D3 could potentially release in the next year? My concerns are the advances in the controls and mechanics of this genre of games in the last few years (namely Torchlight) might make playing older titles frustrating and the whole experience would be lost on me.... and if I shouldn't, what should I do to get my Diablo fix in the mean time?Posted in: Diablo II
