Forcing people to be connected to the net to play the game is what broke it in the first place. That fact alone is the only reason I'm not buying it. Will start playing D2 again.

Cant be arsed reading that review as i am one of the mugs that pre ordered it and couldn't play it till last night because their servers were busy. Surely they knew from the betas and the stress testing that they needed bigger servers. The needing a constant connection to the net to even play single player is soon going to become a growing trend one which i really dont welcome.

Game is awesome though although i can see alot of people needing some serious upgrades done to their computers to play it.

Taking limited free commisions again. PM for info.

The always online BS is what has kept me form buying the game as well. Its complete BS, and will be the reason why the game will become pirated and modded even though Blizzard tried so hard to keep it from happening. No one wants a game with strings attached to it... Ill just keep playing Dark SOuls a lil longer, at least I'm getting a challenge!

So, in addition to needing a new computer to play it, I'd need to upgrade my cable internet. That's a lot to do for a game. Not worth the wait I'm afraid. I'll just have to be content wit D2 and watching the cut scenes on Youtube.

If constant internet connection is the growing trend, I'll be less inclined to get computer games than I already am. (Curses Steam repeatedly.) I'll just stick to my console games.

Yeah... I'll stick to Diablo 2. All this hype about that game has been seriously pissing me off.
This always online bullshit is starting to wear paper thin, I'm still pissed that two of my favourite game devs have fucked up colossally so far this year. (Bioware and Blizzard)

Even the consoles are getting bad, they still rumour that you will need a constant net connection in the next gen consoles.
