4th WoW xpac (Mists of Pandaria) is a almost-certainty (as much as can be for Blizz) - the internal alpha has started already, Friends and Family alpha is within the next couple of weeks, and the beta not too far away.

D3 by June, MoP by July (more a hope than a guess), Heart of the Swarm by Dec for the Christmas rush? (or Jan/Feb if they miss it)

Blizz know if they delay MoP too long, that players will simply up and quit, and WoW certainly does make them a hojillion dollars each second.

D3 release date will come out in the next month with certainty, i predict in the next two weeks. Mark my words :)

During Activision's Q4 financial call, Diablo III got pegged with a Q2 2012 launch – placing its no-longer-randomized drop date between April 1 and June 30.
Check your emails if you have been entering competitions as I had 3 arrive in 2 days(after a week of applying for them like crazy).

Damn fun but it somehow reminds me of Dota 2.(Terrain cartoony looking artstyle, hostile enemy highlighting, click movement animation etc.)
I swear apart from no circles over heroes and the locked screen they are running on the same damn game engine rofl. Even the gold drop/kill noise sounds the same.
Ofcourse the artwork in D3 is a bit more detailed and alot more grim and dark, but essential things like the ground//grass & rocks look strangely similar.

I just find it weird.

Dota 2 gameplay
Diablo 3 gameplay
(Watch both videos at the same time with the sound muted).

So I won me a key for this, took about 5hrs to download (was only getting like 50-150kb/s for some reason) then when I go to login with my battle.net details it tells me I'm using a wrong username or password...:thumbdn:
Obviously I tried several times and I'm sure it's the right details, and the beta is activated on my account etc. Changed my password to something smaller but it still doesn't work. Looked up the error message and found forum threads 40+ pages long with other people that have the same issue. Nice one blizzard :tired:

The Diablo 3 beta installer is hopeless

Stuck at 60% of "Updating setup files..." running for 48 hours already.

Pretty sure it resumes if you close it and reopen it

Re this issue, seems like they are aware of this and it's some kind of server problem for some people outside of the US. Should be fixed soon. Meanwhile I will play some Diablo 2 :D

you have to right click on it and run as administrator or it pretty much wont download

It downloaded and opens up just fine, but won't allow me to login on the menu screen. I'm running it on a admin account but tried "running as admin" as well and it didn't work.
Blizzard have already stated it's an issue on their end so I guess I just have to wait.

Playing through the beta, a couple of thoughts:
1. I miss having dual weapon sets. Admittedly, I didnít use them that often in Diablo II, but I prefer melee characters and it was always nice to switch to a range weapon and snipe a monster before engaging it in melee combat.

2. Whilst runes operate in a similar way to their original descriptions (i.e. as skill modifiers), handing them to you at particular levels takes away more than it gives, IMHO.

3. I donít understand why I canít fully equip my companion the same way I could fully equip my hireling back in Diablo II. It seems an arbitrary decision.

4. You canít just stop playing, and resume exactly where you left off, unless you stop at a checkpoint. This isnít a major gripe, just something to be aware of.
