    Has anyone bought digital copies off game-lane before? How prompt are they with emailing the cd-key? I would like to be able to play the moment it's released :D

    As lame as it sounds I'd kind of prefer having the box to add to the collection. Maybe I am just living in the past... But yeah, long term Diablo fan in general.

    Bu I am not sure how I am going to balance SC2 and D3 gameplay, if HoTS comes out soon I am screwed :tongue:

    Can't decide if I'll buy D3 or just stick to Path of Exile beta. Probably the latter (and it's not about the money), but I'll see how you guys are liking D3 after a few days. I've played D3 beta for quite a while too.

    That list says Blizzard Online Store is $69, but when I go there it says $79.95 AUD. I'll pay $50/$60/$70 but not $80. Sick of being bent over just because you don't live in <developer's home country>

    So did this beta open several weeks before final release? I think not. Blizzards WoW beta is completely different thant Blizzards Diablo3 'beta'. The fanbois defend the 'beta' we just had by asserting its 'just a server test' 'not the final product', 'why would it be any different from the 12 year old game apart from graphics' and 'man its just a beta, nothing like the full release'. However I doubt they spent too much money making a completely parallel product that looked similar to D3 but had a lot of differences from it. The game will be more complex mainly to due to higher levels having more skills and abilities, whether it makes a difference from left button, left button, left button, right button remains to be seen. The Dev video saying the game will be really hard on hard mode is a bit unconvincing, from the dawn of time computer games have been made harder merely by altering the health/damage ratio of the players to the NPCs, whether that constitutes much variance in play is doubtful. I'm sure itll sell oodles, but longevity or becoming a 'classic' remains to be seen. I'm less keen on playing it now than I was before the 'beta', perhaps just a realignment of expectations, downwards.
