I would love a Diablo III Guest Pass please, I really need to try it out and see if it will run alright on my PC before I can commit to buying it but I'm really desperate to play it!
Big thanks to anyone who can help me out!
Well after getting excited for the Starter Edition of Diablo III it now seems like it's only available via a "Guest Pass", I made a battle.net account and everything :(
Anyone kind enough to PM me a Guest Pass I would really appreciate it!
Thanks for all the replies guys!
If you love loot, you should get a kick out of Diablo III. Pretty much everything you fight is a pinata bursting with goodies, and especially once you hit 60, killing a boss and watching a shower of rares fill your screen is always a kick. It's easily one of the most accessible games Blizzard has made too, mainly thanks to the auction house which can really flatten the difficulty curve if you take advantage of it. I'm not a huge fan of the AH personally, but on the other hand, I was able to take my lvl 60 Monk with no gear and for next to nothing (and with about half an hour shopping), gear her up to the point where I'm shredding Act 1 Inferno. Honestly though, best way to tell if you like it is to pick up the Starter Edition, which lets you play about the first third of Act I normal for free.
As far as performance goes, Blizzard aims low for their system reqs., so unless you're using something truly ancient you should be fine. Again, getting the Starter Edition will answer this better than anybody here can.
Oh the Starter Edition sounds awesome! I'm a bit confused how it will work if I eventually buy the full retail game though? Will I still need to use the disk or are disks in retail PC games never used now except to install? (Sorry its been a while since I bought a PC game).
I was just wondering all of your opinions on whether Diablo III is for me or not?
I used to love video games and play them very regularly but as I have now got older and have a busier life I have very much gotten out of the hobby. Coming back to Giantbomb lately I have seen a few Quick Looks and that passion and enjoyment is starting to come back. Now, I have never played PC games that much and have only ever played one RPG on the Xbox 360 which was The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion but absolutely loved it and I love loot and many different combinations of armour and weapons which Diablo III seems to really excel in. I have never played the first two games so will I struggle to get used to this one straight away or is it very new user friendly? I am also interested in Diablo III as it doesn't seem as ridiculously in depth as other RPG'S and although I would like to get immersed into a game I don’t want to be having to do hours of research for the best skill sets and levelling up etc. The final information I need is if it needs a very high spec PC to run it smoothly? I am embarrassed to admit I have a quite outdated Windows Vista 2008 Dell XPS with an Intel E8500 Core 2 Duo Processor 3.16GHz, 2GB of RAM and a 256MB ATI® Radeon™ HD 2600 XT graphics card but have recently done a reformat and runs smoothly for older games at the moment. I do also have a Windows 7 Toshiba laptop with Intel Core i3 380M / 2.53 GHz / 3 MB Cache, 6GB of RAM but only Intel HD Graphics so am unsure if that would fare any better?
Thanks for taking the time to help me though; I look forward to hearing your opinions.
