Where can I find a Diablo 2 battle chest for around 20$. Or anything lower than 30$.
Preferably B&M

According to the weekly ad you can take 10 dollars off that price at a storefront. Go get 'em.

Awesome thanks, still thinking if I should get it or not though, because I already have it, but the discs are scattered. I just wanted to have a plan to fall back on.

I was thinking about picking this up since diablo 3 got announced, I played it back in the day.
I don't remember much, but was the single player pretty lengthy. I didn't like the online, since it was just about the loot. But it was free to play online so what the hell. Do you think they'll charge a la wow? either way, I may try and find this used somewhere...

Diablo II no longer requires discs to play with the newest patch. If you can find the play disc you can copy a couple of files onto your hard drive and you'll never need the disc again.

I installed Diablo 2 yesterday...just got done playing for about an hour. I highly recommend installing the expansion, item drops are much better.

I say just buy it. Diablo 2 is awesome, and you get a lot of stuff in that Battle Chest for $20 (not just the game and the expansion, but also strategy guides and a copy of the original Diablo).

I would have probably bought that as well had I not managed to pick up a copy of Diablo 2 for a dollar at a garage sale and then LoD for $10 at the Game Days sale.

I think his point was that you only need the CDKey, then you can download the game and not need the CDs at all.

So, with the weekly ad, would the final price be $19.99 or $29.99?

And if it isn't, you can register your keys at Blizzard's online store and download either version.

So, here's a place that sells (apparently) legit CD keys for Diablo 2 and LoD (you get both) for $5.50. But, when you register for an account, the price automatically drops by 10% in your cart, coming in at under $5. Hard to do much better than that...

http://www.g2buy.com...10&productname=

Now, you only get the CD Keys and not the discs, you say. How can you install the game? Well, the Blizzard store now allows you to DOWNLOAD the installs for Diablo 2 and LoD as long as you provide a valid CD Key. I actually tried this out myself and downloaded the installs because my Diablo discs are getting a bit old and don't work very well any more. Once you get your CD keys, go to this section of the Blizzard website:

https://www.blizzard...login/login.xml

Login if you already have an account or setup a new one. Then simply go to your account, click on the "Games" button, and then "Add new game". Enter in the codes you received and you'll be able to download the Mac and PC installs whenever you want. When you actually get to installing the game, make sure you click the link under your game that you added that says "View Game Key", as, for some reason, the new installs use a new key system to install and not the original keys that came on the discs.

The only other thing to note is that, for some reason, as of Saturday, these new keys (that are generated from the website, not any relation to the keys you buy from g2, as this occurred with my original CD-based keys) only work on US-West. I'm not sure if this is related to US-East needing an upgrade or what, but if you really want to use US-East, it may not be ready yet... I'll check it out again tonight. Still, for $5, this is an outstanding deal. I bought it just to have an extra set of keys, despite owning the CDs as well.

I bet I could find the CD Keys thanks for the heads up

Went to Gamestop and the game came out to $19.99. They didn't have the promotion in the computer so they added it in manually when I pointed out the ad.

Wait, so the Diablo Battle Chest is currently 19.99? I haven't seen anything on that... is it really in the ad?

Was skeptical but have to admit the G2buy was a great way to get Diablo II and the expansion. I paid less than $5 and was able to download and install both without any trouble. I wanted to pick up at Gamestop for the $19 deal mentioned but none of my local GS had instock. So I figured what was a $5 chance at getting the games - thanks to the poster that found the G2 site.

Personally, my wait was about 15 minutes, maybe just a little more. I had registered my Blizzard account and my email was there. It was a reply to the paypal payment email that was sent confirming payment was made.
