    Default Diablo 3 after the removal of the cancer that is Jay Wilson

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/blog/10974978/

    This, plus Loot 2.0, Paragon 2.0 and other changes make a great step towards bringing back the fun in Diablo. Oh, and my beloved Gothic architecture is making a comeback for Westmarch!

    Lots of people are cheering over this.

    I actually think it is related to the consoles though, nothing to do with the gameplay elements of the game.

    They are doing this AFAIK. Not sure how much of it will fall under the expansion. IMO they need to add end-game and atmosphere. Like the depresing, forlorn feeling of walking in the rain through the Rogue's Camps and the music and short and rare speech by enemies.

    Wake me when it has offline play. If I want to put up with always online DRM, I'd play Path of Exile. At least it's free to play.

    Wasn't always-online DRM justified by the them saying that players will have to stay online anyway to use the Auction House?
    Now that they've decided to remove that, maybe they'll do away with the DRM too eventually.

    No way. Online DRM is here to stay and will be implemented more and more. it's the ONLY sure-fire way to squash piracy. I don't support it, but I would if I were the head of a gaming company.

    POE is great but it's unpolished and last time I checked there were many unviable builds and a few cookie-cutter builds, and I dislike that. Not that Diablo 3 has that many great builds but you can make almost anything work for PvE.

    While the online DRM Diablo 3 uses is more effective than other DRM in curbing piracy, it is in no way full proof. A quick google search brings up nearly two year old pages with posts and links to client server emulators for Diablo 3.
    Sure they probably don't work very well and might be a pain to setup, but the hard boiled ones will still play the game inspite of all this, without paying.

    After playing D2 for a very long time and playing more MMORPGs I'm not sure D3 would give me what I want. Not even sure I know what I want really though.

    They don't work and blizzhack or whatever that site was called stopped trying a few months after release. You could at most strut around in New Tristram and the game crashed when you tried going out, from what I read.

    I heard that some key pieces of content were streamed/created at random according to your client at the time of playing which made it difficult, as you would need access to the server side code to create a reliable 'hack'. They didn't get a hold of it and early emulators were quickly patched up too.

    That being said, is anyone here up for some Diablo 3 coop?

    D3 in my view is an alien data entry training tool. And I'll admit to being more than a little annoyed I bought into it.

    I knew better than to believe Blizzard was up to anything other than rehashing the same 10+ year old games, I witnessed it with the first release of SC2.

    Knowing you're doing something stupid and still doing is so amusingly human.

    Actually a time machine reference is apt. Both SC2 and D3 look to me like game play from 1996.
