    I'm still waiting for the game to get a significant discount on PC (In Canada specifically). Hell, we can't even buy it direct on (3rd party seller on Amazon only). That $38 price (Plus shipping) is the lowest I've seen for the game, I think. Game has been out for ages, give it to us for 50% off at least eh?

    It's actually 19.99 right now as a direct download from battle net.

    So instead of increasing the loot quality dropped from mobs, they force you to spam the blacksmith? Sounds like Blizzard took the lazy way out for a cash grab, no surprise there.

    I want to win this so bad. Come on Gamesradar :P

    Diablo III didn't excite mel but maybe that was because of everything they took out of this. This makes me want this pretty badly, and the control scheme is beyond perfect for a gamepad.

    Sounds like the PC version with offline mode and a screwed up difficulty/monster power system. The ability to play with friends has been here the whole time..
  • Nettacki - September 3, 2013 1:46 p.m.

    The removal of the Auction House and the need for a constant internet connection automatically makes this better than the PC version. That being said, I'm still not gonna get this because it's still expensive and I'd rather spend time playing Torchlight 2.

    IMO, this games sounds over rated.

    To each their own, I guess. Diablo II is the reason I failed college, and Diablo III is equally incredible. I also have low standards with story, inherited from my unrivalled love for action films.
  • Higgins - May 22, 2012 1:07 p.m.

    I'm really enjoying the game so fare, but yaeh, the single-player lag is stupidity incarnate.
  • InFeRnOg - May 22, 2012 12:05 p.m.

    Anyone contemplating Diablo III, just go buy Titan Quest and its expansion for $10. Then, get Grim Dawn next year.

    Really good review. Also, I'm a huge fan of your style Hollander..."The gameplay – that’s the 'clicking on stuff until it dies, then leveling' part" made me choke on my coffee.

    Prime example of how if you wait 10+ years for a game it'll probably be disappointing
  • patbateman17 - May 22, 2012 11:13 a.m.

    Totally untrue, just look at Duke Nukem Forever...
  • Person5 - May 22, 2012 4:36 p.m.

    which was disappointing...
  • KuramaBingyi - May 22, 2012 7:04 p.m.

    DNF is a bad example. Uh...Look at...Starcraft...Two?
  • MetroidPrimeRib - May 22, 2012 10:03 p.m.

    StarCraft II is probably the only game I can think of that actually was NOT disappointing with that long of a dev time. I mean sure it wasn't as good as Brood War but not many games are.
  • tuomotaivainen - May 23, 2012 5:02 p.m.

    You're assuming that Diablo 3 was in development for all of those 10 years. Same goes for Starcraft 2. DNF is the only REAL example cause we actually KNOW that it was in development for that long. Assuming that just because there's a 10 year gap between sequels means it's been in development for that long is both naive and wrong. That said, Diablo 3 does have it's flaws, I'll agree with that. It's still a good game though ;)
  • patbateman17 - May 23, 2012 6:08 a.m.

    Or the Syndicate reboot! Wait...
  • noneedlesjustshots - May 22, 2012 7:07 a.m.

    I was interested in this game until it came out and I discovered that it had DRM. I refuse to be playing a single player game that I (in this hypothetical situation) PAY $63 FOR, and then boot up a single player game to find NOTHING. Dear god, what if Call of Duty pulled this crap? There would be blood running through the streets!
