Went to FS and there was a line of probably 20 or so in front of me. Store only had 6 CE's so I didn't get one and they ran out of the steel cases like 3 people before me, so that was a pointless trip :(

So, did anyone get to play last night?

I got as far as character creation, but it kept timing out when I hit "create character". Tried till 1 am, and went to bed.

Anyone with eyefinity give it a go?

Have the day off, broke down went to WalMart and bought a copy for myself and one for my uncle.

I had to scour the electronics section because none were on display, the sales associate asked if it was an Xbox game, lol.

Pull my nerd card if you want but I cant say I ever played any of the Diablos. Is it really that fun? Seems everyone loves it.

It's a grindfest. Diablo 1 was literally just a grindfest, and Diablo 2 was a grindfest with a storyline.

Quite frankly the only reason you play the game is multiplayer. While Diablo 3 tries to help that bit with more of a storyline this time, the core draw is multiplayer. Just you and 3 other people fighting off the hordes of hell for hours on end. And when you manage to beat it: Nope. Increase difficulty. Attempt it again.

I managed to log in about 4:15 EST. Slept through my alarm till 3:30ish, 45 min to log in and create a toon. Played till 7:15, solid 3 hours with 4 other buddies. We got to level 15/16ish, and I think we stopped after the Butcher.

It is an absolute BLAST to play with buddies, doesnt have any of the grindy feel that D2 did, and combat is exciting, thrilling even. The mobs sure do get beefy fast with 4 players, and death always feels a possibility. Great game. Now, that being said, is it 'revolutionary'? No. But should it be? I dont think so, its Diablo!

If you liked D2, D3 is by far and away better in every sense, combat, story, art and graphics, characters. I'm very much looking forward to quitting hour
