    I am going to go ahead and say that I will eat my dick if Diablo 3 costs money to play online in any western territory.

    We're not talking about Flagship studios here. Blizzard isn't stupid and they don't need the money that badly to assassinate their own game.

    Wait what was the bug that caused the items to go everywhere?

    Oh god, I think it was something to do with intentionally dropping a bunch of other shit on your corpse, so you'd try to pick it all up, fail to do so and then when killed again 'explode'... I can't recall the exact details of it, but I don't believe it ever happened to me. I saw it happen to a guy, and snagged a bunch of his gear before anyone else could pilfer it (and gave it right back to him), but there was a ton of bitching about it on the forums at the time.

    Huh.

    That just made me realise that playing this game online is gonna involve battlenet kiddies that do shit like this.

    I doubt I'll have the ping to play on penny arcade password protected servers.

    I have full faith that Blizzard will do everything they can to prevent griefing.

    Sadly, I have greater faith in the douchebaggery of various online gamers, doubly so for those who frequent anonymous battle.net games.

    You can always hope most of the massive twats are too obsessed with whatever wow expansion is out at the time to spend much time in D3.

    I'm guessing we'll see, or damn near, another expansion past WotLK before we see D3.

    I hope they never put charms in the game.

    Charm spam for D2 just ruined the PvP.

    Charms were both great and UGHHHHHHHH my inventory is all filled up argh argh.

    I'd prefer it if they didn't make a return, or you got a massively increased inventory or a seperate "charm" inventory that is the only place charms can go. Putting them in the normal inventory is just...blerg.

    Why? You really think it will be any sooner?

    No, I was thinking it could be later.. they're not even announcing any estimates themselves in their official FAQ

    I agree that like all Blizzard products, this will be massively subject to change, but unless we here horrific things otherwise, I think a "WLK 08, SC2 09, D3 2010" guesstimate seems reasonable. Y'know, go for the "Hat Trick" of Games of the Year.

    Of course, you could easily shift those to 09, 10, 11, depending on when they get around to actually realeasing the next WoW expansion. With only 6 months left in the year and no news of a proper beta starting yet, the outlook is somewhat grim.

    I don't see them releasing it in 2011. That would just seem ridiculous to me given how unbelievably dated the graphics will be by then, it'll be worse than how dated D2 was when it came out.

    Considering i wasn't the biggest fan of Diablo 2, I'm ridiculously hyped Diablo 3. Well i was a fan of the original, i always loved playing it with friends, but i was never too bothered about playing solo.

    Starcraft 2 Summer 09 Diablo 3 Christmas 09 sounds absolutely amazing but SC2 is more likely for Christmas 09 while Diablo summer or christmas 10.

    i think its entirely possible that diablo3 would be completed before starcraft 2, it looks pretty well developed but they are hiring for D3 openly right now whereas they arent anymore for starcraft 2....i see xmas 08 for sc2 and summer/xmas 09 for diablo3

    I wouldn't even bother trying to guess a release date. Doesn't Blizzard have a "It's finished, when it's finished" policy?

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.
    American politics isn't 4D chess, it's just if you give a shit about other people or not.
