Prepare Your Clicking Finger!

How many clicks does it take to get to the gates of Hell? I don't know, many! But you can start counting in a few hours.

I'm not quite dedicated enough to the franchise to be in line at midnight tonight, and if you notice anyone at your work place who is mysteriously ill tomorrow you can safely blame the demons of hell and actually have a pretty good chance of being correct for once.

Though PvP has been removed (for now) and the game appears to have been watered down for the shareholders, in the end Diablo 3 still promises to be a very entertaining co-op experience, and being the glutton for punishment that I am, hardcore mode is calling my name.

I'm sure I'll see some of you there. I haven't spent much time looking at all the info that Blizzard has made available, and although I'm not expecting War and Peace, I'm going to do my best to avoid spoilers and see the plot through as I progress through the game as it should be enjoyable. So far all I really know is that I'm leaning towards a Witchdoctor, but who knows!

See you in hell.

Only in nightmare act2 due to limited play time, but enjoying so far. Maybe a bit easy so far, but friends have died a lot, so its probably about right.

Less clicking than D2 since you can just hold down the button to move around the map.

I'm act 3 of nightmare, greatly enjoying so far. I've played the large majority solo, but did some stuff with Carl and one of his friends recently. I can say with the current server issues / some of the affixes the monsters have I would recommend against trying hardcore at all. If you get jailed with arcane orb-beam things all around you there's no way to live.

I find the gameplay fun, achievements interesting and the dialogue/story lacking. Act 2 & 3 are my faves.

Act 2 nightmare myself. Have a friend on Act 2 Hell, and he says it's intense. Has had multiple 10-15 minute fights with the magical/named spawns.

I'm still working my way through normal, had to leave town after only a few days of playtime.

So far act II is quite a bit better than act I though, so looking forward to the rest (and to the harder difficulty levels).

It's fun, but way too easy on normal.

Will be back this weekend and up for some co-op if anyone's around.

Things really seemed to go downhill quickly a few weeks after release. Inferno was silly hard for some classes while others could cheese through it. Patches went through to try and slow down gold income. Bots have devalued gold and using the gold AH for upgrades requires boatloads.

Refuse to use the RMAH, so I'm stuck farming A2 inferno on my barb when I play, which is becoming far less frequent.

Probably best to just wait til they patch things and see what happens once you can clear A1 inferno.
