Before I get to talk about D3, I wanted to link to my buddies post.
Something we often do before or during instances in our group of friends is a dance party. They are nice and colorful now thanks to marker flags.
Now, on to Diablo 3.
I would like to say it is good, but I wont. It is fucking awesome.
I loved Diablo, but never go around to D2. It has really been that long since I got in some good hack n slash action. This game is outstanding. It makes no pretenses....it is all about loot and causing zombies and demons to die a grizzly death.
The only gripe I really had so far was that it feels like more of a demo as you can only do Act 1 and get to level 13 on any given character.
So far, I have played the Barbarian to 10, the Monk to 8, and the Wizard and Demon Hunter to 3 and 2 respectively.
The locals are awesome, the randon generated mini dungeons are awesome, and frantically clicking everything is awesome.
So far, all of the classes seem pretty cool. I know I am going to be a Barbarian at release, though I will likely play all of the classes.
The crafting system is incredibly easy and I like it that way.
I did not bother with the AH, but will probably check it out at some point.
Those are my first impressions. Lots and lots of fun.
