I may take a ride around this morning and see if any CE versions are around the area at the targets, best buy and walmart close by. I'm kind of interested in it, but I'll be honest. I never played the first two. I'm sure that will get me pitchforked (but I was a huge SC fan and Warcraft 2 fan).

I'll throw my name out there as well if anyone has a spare guest pass. My collectors edition hasn't even shipped yet from Amazon. Oh the joy of when I decided to move back to AK where shipping is slightly better run then pissing in the wind.

Looking for a guest pass if anyone's got a spare. Considering buying it, but want to check out how it compares to D2 first.

Thinking about doing this too. GS seems like a good bet if their stock indicator is worth a damn.

I wouldn't mind a guest pass if anyone has one they won't be passing on to a friend, relative, pet or such. Thanks!

Well, if you just want to try the game now for the possible purchase later.... The "beta" experience, which is the same as the guest pass, will be open to the general public in a month or so via the Starter Experience.

Link for details: http://www.slashgear...-demo-14228103/

As for my opinion in how it compares.... Not so well in were it matters.

I did the open beta weekend (getting past some error 37 message while doing so) and while it, obviously, looks/sounds better than DII I found it to be rather lacking in character development...

(Even with the option to chose its very much like playing a game with auto level on.)

Customization is very much tied to gear (though not completely, some choice exists just not much) and if the best gear at high level is all set/unique related its going to be very possible to have every max level character look the same after all the grinding is said and done... (Very much like a MMO.)

Now, I'm not saying the game is bad... Its not. In fact,it plays quite well for the most part, but its not the Diablo game I've been waited so long for and I know I would enjoy it more if it didn't say Diablo III on it. (Granted, I still wouldn't pay 60 dollars for it since replayability is so limited... (nonexistent.)

With a guest pass... if you make a character- can you carry it over to the retail version???

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:ps3: Batman: Arkham City

:wiiu: Mario Kart 8
:3ds: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King Why'd You Steal Our Garbage

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

Im going to try to get one at the midnight opening as well. Best buy usually has tons of collectors everytime i've gone for every other game. Hopefully tonight its the same.


My local best buy only got in 14 copies, exactly enough for the number of preorders.

I thought I had resolved my blacklist problems by calling GS CSR to explain why I ordered multiples when the move equipment went on sale. I was told it would be resolved in a few business days. But... still can't place an order.

Wow I didn't know that. I would expect that if a copy was reserved in the system, it would not show up as available on line. Derp.

Is it possible to resell either version after you are done with it or is the cd key tied to a blizzard account?

Sorry for being rude. Late night. That is how GS inventory checker works. If they have a copy it will show up as in stock; even if that copy is reserved for a preorder

My opinion differs from yours. As someone who played D2 for 7 years pretty much straight then another 2 years off and on, I think the replayability is roughly the same. I say roughly because I obviously don't know how the end game works for D3 yet nor what the expansion packs (you know they're coming) would add.

As for the skills all being tied to weapons, this is the ONE major thing that I LOVE about Diablo 3 (there are lots of things I like, but this is the biggest). Love. So glad they changed that from Diablo 2. Now, every class more or less (depends on gear obviously) has the same ability to be an "MF" character or "gold find character." Some classes may have slightly better gear, but it comes down to how you play and what gear you have instead of design decisions.

Obviously this is all my opinion, but it plays very much like a Diablo game to me. I'm just glad they gave personalized drops, skill damage based on gear and the ability to respec at any time. Only time will tell if it is as replayable as D2 (seems that way so far), but I, for one, welcome our new Diablo 3 overlords.
