You're going to buy Diablo 3. Trust me.
If you stillinsist on telling people you aren't going to buy the game, then the only question I have for you is...
Are you planning on pre-ordering it, or do you think you'll buy it from a brick and mortar such as Gamestop on DAY ONE?
And for the most stubborn of the stubborn--I'll give you a month tops before you cave.
While the haters try to figure out how to fill the rest of their half empty glass with delusional thoughts of Torchlight 2 and Who Gives a **** 3, I'm going to be balls deep in the blissful euphoria that is Diablo 3. Realistically, I find it hard to believe that the rumors of a Holiday 2011 release are true. However, I'm willing to bet that Blizzard will throw us a bone of some kind at BlizzCon '11 and finally give us information that will tame our restless psyches.
There is NO solution for the whole debacle over the always on DRM and the no mods or lan. I'm not addressing the real money auction house. There are going to be way too many people playing this game, which will lead to way too many cheaters and hackers if the game wasn't always on DRM. I agree that Blizzard's popularity has become its achilles heal as far as delivering everything gamers want from them. Understand that Blizzard is a business in the video game industry. They want to make a good profit and maintain a reputation of good integrity. Sadly, great sacrifices were made to create an environment without cheaters. There are enough gamers who care more about an environment without cheaters than they do about whether or not the game is always on DRM; so that Blizzard will make a good profit of Diablo 3 while maintaining the best reputation of integrity possible. Blizzard has proven their always on DRM system to be of the highest quality in the industry. Look at WoW and Starcraft 2--virtually no cheaters in the game, online. The point I'm trying to make is if you really need someone to hate,hate the hackers and cheaters.
And seriously, stop kidding yourself.
