Looks like the Beta was open for a bit, but it might have been a bug :(

I downloaded the client. Got it to launch but the servers were down. Here's to it magically working when I get home even if it is just a bug

I guess community made high res texture packs are out of the question? I have no doubt the game play will be great, but it will be in spite of the graphics. (similar to Detroit winning a cup with Osgood in net :P)

I'm kinda worried though. I've had access to the beta for a couple months now and after beating it with a monk I have no urge to play it.

Same as me was a monk beat it, haven't touched it since, kind of clunky and rushed feel to me. I still would much rather play 2, and if it's going to be like I think it is with a bunch of kids spending $100 on gear on day one, I won't be playing it.

I'm in the beta, and I find it great... At the end of the day, you'll have to make your own decision. Some people will hate it, some will love it. It's definitively not a Far cry 2

D2 is just outdated...I want a new storyline :P

I think I'll give up on the beta, I'm pretty sure they've done 2 resets in the past week. I should book the 15th and 16th off now...
