    Played some co-op with a friend and ended up finishing the portion of the campaign in the beta. I played as a Demon Hunter and he was a Wizard.

    So far normal difficulty feels really easy, and gold/item drops are abundant. I do like how each player gets localized loot drops, keeps people from loot whoring. This being my first experience with any Diablo game, I really like how it plays and feels so far. Defiantly going to buy the game when it comes out.

    I've noticed that ranged classes seem to have it a bit easier -- try a monk or barb and it's no picnic.

    It helps once you get geared up a bit though -- I can't wait to check out Inferno mode, they've been telling us it's gonna be super hard, like monsters specifically will be 5+ levels above players hard, should be fun.

    As a casual diablo 3 player, i wanna say that this game kicks ass! Ive been using the Demon Hunter, and I am sooo impressed with the stutter step micro i can achieve with it. Soooo awesome! The game on Normal does seem a lil easy, but some elites tend to be somewhat,'problematic'. But i havent found myself having too much trouble until Leoric.

    He seems to be the toughest not because of his high HP, but more because the AI is pretty tricky. The surround spawns ensure that I am using Vault, Caltrops and my offensive abilities all in tandem constantly, thus draining my Hatred and Discipline pretty quickly. THAT'S the kind of fight I love! And since this is only Act 1 part 1, I am pretty sure the difficulty progression will be like diablo 2 where the monsters got stronger and the minibosses start mimicking the first major boss in difficulty. Ofc at the end of each Act, the iltimate boss is bound to be even stronger. So in that sense, I think the game is going to play like D2, but be much better.

    Also me = sad panda. Cannot play the last of the open beta.. Been at doctor's for 2hours now... No end to the wait in sight... </3

    I yielded, and unlocked her all my heart, who with a grain of manhood well resolved might easily have shook off all her snares: But foul effeminancy held me yoked, her bond-slave. O indignity, O blot to honor and religion! Servile mind rewarded well with servile punishment!

    You reminded me that I was neglecting to play the beta, so I gave it a whirl today. The gameplay seems acceptable, but I'm really disappointed by the detail in the graphics. XG3 can defend it all he wants, but the game visually feels dated pre-release :\

    That's a double edged sword though, isn't it? My brother, who is due for a new computer, was grateful to find that he could play it on his dated laptop, quite smoothly, I might add.

    True, but the better way to cover that market is with lower settings. There's nothing wrong with a game's "high or ultra" settings requiring newer PC components. The company just has to make sure the lower settings still look good and maintain the spirit of the game. Diablo 3 feels like 'Low' is the only setting.

    Iono, I thought it looked pretty damn good on my rig.

    But your point is well taken. I was just pleased that I could play it with my bro, since his computer is fast becoming dated.
