After seeing the recent data mining post hint at another difficulty mode, I am unsure whether this is really necessary.
Having completed Act IV Inferno on several toons, I felt it would only be necessary to tackle Act V on Inferno difficulty - which diminishes the Diablo experience.
On one hand, an extra difficulty setting gives me more to do with my Lvl 60 characters when the expansion comes out. - which is a good thing.
On the other, if I want to level a new character from scratch, I have to complete 5 difficulty setttings to get to "end game". That's a LOT of repetition. I feel the difficulties should be scaled to a maximum of 3 settings - therefore Torment/Inferno difficulty should be the Hell mode setting, or you should be able to skip difficulty settings if your toon can handle it.
I think the MP setting scales the difficulty experience without having to add ANOTHER difficulty setting.
What are other peoples thoughts?

Sep 18, 2013I'll actually be quite disappointed if this turns out to be correct. I feel Imperius would be much better as a difficult/troubled protagonist in the story line.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
We already have one fallen angel in Malthael.
Sep 18, 2013Just looking at the Model Animations, I noticed the glowing wound is still evident on Imperius.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The follow up animation shows a large demon with similar wings in the background.
Could Imperius have been corrupted by Diablo's attack, and will literally morph into 'Wrath" as a demon?
Thoughts? Or have I missed this in the other datamined material?
May 29, 2012Al0cer posted a message on Servers down until 11am PST, what will you do until thenPosted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from axeman87
It may not affect people in the US as much with ALL this downtime occurring in the early hours of their morning, but for us over here, it is PEAK hour.
I seem to recall a post from Blizzard before release that the downtime would be nothing like WoW.
Yes you can call this a whining post and say "But they are just ironing out post release bugs - they can't foresee these types off things etc..."
GTFO - I just wan't to play my game. An 8 hour downtime two weeks after release during peak hour is absurd for us Aussies / Kiwis.
It seems almost every second or third night I log on, the servers are down.
IT IS SO FRUSTRATING!! Especially after following Diablo 3's progress since announcement.

I can only listen to about one metal album in a row. It's just too grating.
You guys hear the new Meshuggah yet?
Incredible. I am not one to usually get on the more extreme technical of metal because it is hardly done tastefully, but Meshuggah always impress.
Apr 18, 2012If there is one metal song that I would love love LOVE to hear re-recorded with decent production, it is End of an Era - Hopesfall.Posted in: General Discussion
That song - when it first came out - absolutely blew me away.
Now for shameless self promotion - my band The Rose Line. We got a song up featuring Karl Schubach from Misery Signals that will be on our debut release.
If you like modern metal / metal-corish type of stuff, have a listen
Apr 18, 2012POE is another that will fall into this category I think.Posted in: Off-Topic
But Diablowizard knocked the nail on the head - all the games that have been successful have released well before May 15, just so people could have a decent ARPG to calm their appetite for 'loot' and hack'n'slashing.
I have enjoyed the POE Beta though - especially the 'no gold' mechanic, where currency is just based on trade.
Apr 17, 2012So, Max from the Torchlight 2 dev team has been quoted as saying he would ideally like to release around a month after Diablo 3 comes out...Posted in: Off-Topic
Then we have Realms of Ancient War coming 2nd Qtr 2012 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLw-Zpuv1Ao&feature=share)
Game of Thrones is being released on May 15!? (http://www.gameinformer.com/games/game_of_thrones/b/xbox360/archive/2012/02/02/game-of-thrones-gets-a-release-date-screens-and-a-trailer.aspx)
I have always been a big fan of Torchlight, but will not even look at it until I have exhausted my Diablo 3 experience, which will be a long long time. Does anyone else think that these companies are actually going to expect a lackluster sales performance due to the impact D3 will have on the gaming scene?

Im from Aus and my local EB Games told me that they dont get told until 2-3 days till release if they are having a midnight release. They had always done it for the wow xpacs so touch wood D3 gets the same treatment. But the strange thing is the store manager said its not up to her or head office its up to the company releasing the game and they only get about 2-3 days notice.
Sooo not sure weather thats blizz or the Aus distributer but fingers crossed.
Laws are different in Australia. The guys at GAME told me I would receive my CE the day before release, only because I preordered using the online store and there is some different law/loophole regarding shipping from a warehouse compared to retail sales. That is straight from the horses mouth - as I wanted to guarantee a CE copy ready to go at 4AM AEST (fffuuuuu so laaate in the niiight!!)
Mar 19, 2012Keen for aussie hack'n'slashPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I pre-ordered my Diablo 3 CE through GAME, but am having it delivered...
Now - if anyone can confirm please let me know - GAME have told me that I may even receive this the day BEFORE release, as the laws/rules are different for delivery services than for retail (in regards to release dates).
Not that it really makes any difference to when I can actually log on (since servers go live on the 15th), but it is good to know that there is a chance that I will be able to get my key/serial and use it when the servers go live - instead of waiting at my letterbox and kicking the air for hours whilst my copy is being delivered on the 15th.

Lol my prof told us earlier this year if any could prove the P = NP problem they'd probably win a nobel prize.
I'd ditch the nobel prize and become an interwebs bajillionaire decrypting credit cards...
but seriously, if someone did prove P = NP, we'd all be well screwed

And uhhhmmm well the stone of recall lol dats just town portal so HERE YA GO
OH AND IDENTIFYING CAN NOW BE DONE BY ANYONE AT ALL TIMES LOL.
"Wouldn't that mean our characters inherently understand all lot and the process of identification is just wasting our time as players?"
UHHHH WELLL... WELLL UHHH.
"If our characters can identify it by *looking* at it, aren't they doing that as they see it on the ground and pick it up and store it already?"
UHH WELL IT TAKES SOME TIME LOL BUT U JUST RIGHT CLICK ON IT DATS IT
"But I was used to using identify scrolls and or talking to Cain. It gave me something to do with items. Why would you change a system that no one had issues with."
WELL JUST UHHH RITE CLICK AND IT TAKES 5 SECONDS.
"But using a fucking scroll or talking to Cain was INSTANT..."
WELL UHHHH UHHH
Scrol lof town portal aint in the game but we're just givin you a ubtton that allows you to do it lawl screw stone of recall u kno we just wanted to change shit but anywyz uhm
White items are now useless we just want tons of useless shit to drop so its more exciting when u find super rares u kno?
Well uhhh, just, you know feel it out.
"Whats that mean."
Well just deal with it cause tons of useless shit is dropping.
"That wont make finding an item even more exciting. The exciting item itself is what does that. Nothing dropping at all can make something dropping exciting no matter what it is, whereas dropping tons of whites doesnt do shit for us."

I don't think diablo possesses leah.He probably has some fem. features because andariel's essence is probably part of what ends up in the black soulstone. We have datamining that goes back to october which tells what I said in my last post which reveals a lot. I think leah has a role to play because she has prophetic (and maybe other) powers due to her linneage, but I don't think the evils need a vessel to operate on sanctuary now that they've been freed of their own soulstones (or were never trapped in one to begin with) and the worldstone on sanctuary is gone/back in pandemonium meaning the world is no longer hard to find, and as long as the evils aren't weakened they should be able to come and go almost as they please..
I may have to check out those specific data mine posts. To which are you referring exactly?
But, it makes sense - however Andariel is the only female out of 7 demons...
Say we go with the theory that Diablo has already absorbed Baal and Mephisto (hence the shoulder 'head-pads'). If he has absorbed Andariel, then we should assume he has absorbed Duriel as well. This would make him 1/5th female. Fairly drastic changes to the body for being 1/5th woman lol.
Taking this in an even crazier direction, what if Auriel (Hope) - 'swallowed by despair' - means she will be absorbed as well. Perhaps this female incarnation we see is just one of many that Diablo becomes as he slowly absorbs both Demon and Angel?
^Reading this back just screams n3rd.

2. Batman Arkham City

5. Mortal Kombat
Skyrim was a massive disappointment to me. I attribute it to the fact I found it ridiculously easy after playing Dark Souls - which is now by far one of the most rewarding RPGs I have ever played.
If you haven't played Dark Souls yet, and have either an XBox or PS3 and are an action RPG fan, I thoroughly suggest you purchase it this instant!

Currently watching last episodes of Breaking Bad season 4.
Comparable in awesomeness to both aforementioned shows.
Fringe is another I am finishing up.
I am wondering whether to start Sons of Anarchy after this. Apparently the first few seasons ain't bad. Anyone got an opinion on it?

I thought everyone would have realized the Black Soul Stone is Imperius's prison for his acts against humanity.
It would be interesting to see if the Black Soulstone is used to merge both Demon + Angel in a failed attempt to recreate Tathamet.
Jan 9, 2012Would it be wrong to assume that we will fight two separate incarnations of Diablo throughout the course of the game + expansions? I remember one of the Blizzard team at Blizzcon stating that we will battle Diablo in the initial release of the game, so...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
...the feminine (Diableah/Leablo) incarnation would be a corrupted Leah...
and once defeated - we will face the more brutal/multi-headed incarnation (as seen in the intro/ Dauroth's signature) later in the game. This could be Diablo using the black soulstone to merge with various other Evils.
Just a thought as to how the black soulstone/Diablo could work across the game + expansions.
