    Cool. That would be fun. I never played WOW, so I'll have to set up a battlenet account.

    Indeed. Ever since WOW went to Battlenet i have not been happy.

    See I have a hard time playing with people I don't know or haven't met, I never got into WOW because of it.

    but for some odd reason that doesn't bother me at all on internet forums.

    haha.....ya well on WOW you can solo for a while and join small random groups for quests and then stick with people you like doing that with. Sorta like forums where you like to debate with certain people but are stuck with the everyone else who you can ignore.

    I've used Battlenet now with Wow and SC2. Never had any problem with it. I did hear that it had a large collapse yesterday afternoon, but Bliz had it back up shortly.

    I want to pick this game up eventually, but this guy nailed whats wrong with Diablo III being online in this article:

    For the six of you who just discovered the Internet today, that's a login screen. It's commonly associated with multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft and ... whatever other multiplayer games exist. Except there's a problem: Diablo III isn't a traditional MMO. You don't sign in to the game and immediately find yourself surrounded by a hundred other players shouting racial and homophobic slurs. You are in your own world. By yourself. Single player.

    It is a single-player game with multiplayer options, just like all the other Diablo games. If you choose to play with your friends, you can. If you choose to join public games, you can. Otherwise, you're on your own -- and contrary to what MMO fanatics believe, this is the way millions of gamers prefer it.

    But for the second time, I had to take a breath and remind myself that it's nothing to get worked up about. We've been ******* the gaming industry since the very first video game was invented. They put up with piracy for decades, and so far nothing has worked to stop it. This is just what they've come to, and if signing in to their servers helps prevent theft, then I'm all for it. The more money they make, the more resources they have to put back into expansions and content. Fine.

    Amen to that. I didn't know that would be the case before I bought the game. I would have still bought it and played it, but it is annoying that you have to sign on to play single player. I will probably like Torchlight II when it comes out more than Diablo III anyway.

    So far I have enjoyed the game, but it isn't the same as when Diablo II came out which was revolutionary in some ways. I'm not bitching, it's still fun.

    Its unfortunate, but I love it so far. I can see myself playing this for years, unlike WoW.

    Finished act 2 last night. I'm going to finish all 4 acts on my own before I start doing online multiplayer. I am absolutely loving the length and fluidity of each Act so far.
