As much as I hate Blizzard for making me wait for so long, I'm gonna be a sucker and buy D3... sigh. Torchlight was great for $20 and I'm really into Dragon Age Origins, but I can't effin' wait for D3!!!

It will probably be delayed until either LATE 2011 or 2012. On top of that, they are most likely leaving out LAN support like Starcraft 2. This is the first Diablo title that I will NOT be buying.

If you think that we have only 11 months to wait, then you are being naive to say the least. First of all, there is no announcement the game is coming out on January 1, 2011. Secondly, Blizzard is notorious for pushing back the release dates because "the game's just not ready". My personal forecast based solely on my aspirations is 2011 Labor Day the earliest, and more likely 2012. Which, if I'm right, will give us roughly about 10 months to play, cuz of the End of the World and stuff, LOL! :)

Nothing ruins enthusiasm for a game like an 11 year release cycle.

Multiplayer Co-Op details is what I'm looking for. There is a severe shortage of Main Campaign Co-op network games out there and D2 was awesome at that (along with Titan Quest and a few others)

Woot for slaughter fests with friends in the main story line together!

at least with blizzard's ungodly long release schedule, they actually end up releasing the product :p 

though of course non-wow fans have a reason to be mad, with starcraft2/d3 delays being because of their mmo

If it hurts him to play on keyboard moouse I guess that's not really an option. Don't be a douchebag.

If you can save $5 every month for the next 11 months and you will have enough. If the company delays the product you have extra ca$h.

Yeah...just the same way you didn't buy Modern Warfare 2. Perhaps not you specificially, but people in general who were stating how they won't buy it and yet I know for a fact that there were those who did and were even dumb enough to review the game on gamespot.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, lets say it does come out in 12 months, $53/12= Roughly $4.5 a month if you save, not hard. I bet you have a cellphone too...

Also, what the hell is that barbarian (I think) swinging with? A tooth fairy of pink death with purple rainbow fury? I like the environments without a doubt, but the pink/purple needs to stay in WoW. This is Diablo, not Diablocraft.

You can use a controller with any game, just use a program like Joy2Key. It makes a PS2 -> USB adapter extremely useful. You can set the left joystick to control your character and the right joystick to control the mouse.

I can't wait!
I am building a system now in anticipation!

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black (overclocked to 3.6GHz)
4GB DDR3 1600MHz OCZ CL8 AMD Black RAM
ASROCK AM3 Motherboard
Now I just need to buy a new video card (waiting for the new nVidia line) and a solid state drive and I'll be all set.

I saw extensive gameplay footage of D3 about a year ago and totally forgot about it...and it still has a release date of 2011? WTH is taking so long?

That will be way old technology by the time this game comes out...6 core CPUs will be the norm and SSD's will be much cheaper by then. If the economy doesn't come back I will never get to build a new machine!!

As I've said before, D3 won't be released until 2014, which, coincidentally, will be the same year the Cleveland Browns win the Super Bowl.

I'm not even that interested anymore. I'm not saying that I'm not going to buy it, I'm just saying that 4 years is a really long time to be "pumped." It would get exhausting after the first few years. That, and I'm absorbed in ME2 right now, which is awesome.

Those screenshots look so last year. Did anyone else feel a little bit disappointed when they zoomed in and found everything was kind of blocky? Once D3 comes out the graphics will be severely outdated. This makes me sad.

I don't see how these long delays can make it worth the anticipation.
By the time it's released, it will be optimized for hardware 2-3 years old. How is that for progress? I want new releases to push modern hardware, not old crap. Hell, my old Athlon and 6800 combo with 1GB ram should run this with full settings.

Blizzard must think that the original Starcraft is still popular because people enjoy crappy, outdated graphics.

Eh, the game still looks too bright and colorful to be in the Diablo series. The dark, dreary landscape and melancholy soundtrack of the original two were a big part of the appeal.

Blizzard has a lot to make up for with the amount of time we've been waiting for this game. This game needs to be a million times more of a game than D2 ever was with the amount of time we all have been waiting. Hopefully, they'll stick to their roots and will make this game pay free after buying the game initially, cause hell if I'm going to pay any amount of money on a monthly basis after waiting this damn long.

Same.
DX11 support (with DX11.1 added later on via patches).
Also 8 threaded support (or even 12, because of the six core gulftowns, and 16 threads for the eventual octocores coming).
PhysX (or any other physics rendering, I'll take anything, especially if I can run it on ATI, or maybe just a 5870+9800GTX if it will let me use a hybrid setup). Physics on a game like Diablo would be pimp.
Full resolution support. 640x480 in D3 (800x600 in the expansion) max resolution was horrible. I understand they don't to give richer players an unfair advantage 9well, blizzard has changed, so maybe not anymore), but I'm about to have three 2048x1152 monitors, and I want to use them all! (even if one is for inventory/quests, the other is for map/chat, and the main monitor is for actual gameplay).

Come on Blizzard, by the time you release it, I want it to have every single bell and whistle you can think of, and then some.

I've been waiting for this game for a very long time now. If they charge $100, +$100 for an expansion, I will pay.

I think at this stage the Blizzard actually complied and made the game look less like WoW. Problem is, it now looks exactly like the old games....

It's not the first time I hear this, and probably not the last time, but who are you to say all these games are delayed because of WoW? It didn't occur to any of you that a publisher can have different studios developping different games? Is it not possible that a particular game is delayed for a reason NOT involving another game?

Yes, I'm a WoW addict, so my opinion is a little biased. But WoW haters have their opinion biased too, because The fact is we really don't know why they make us wait this long for SC2 and D3.
