They based the Demon Hunter character on Nienna.

True story.

Well it is diablo wink.gif I think sillyness is kinda guaranteed with that. I don't think even Blizzard tries to tell that it's 100% serious game tongue.gif it's more like super grim world where an unexpected hero of unfathomable power arrives to kill three billion monsters alone... not to mention that the small villages always seem to be somewhat excuse location with stores revolving around PCs convenience... they don't have farmlands that sustains their own lifestyle, no real ways of trading... ;P but yeah, it's a grind game and really grinding is most that can be expected of it. Do they still call it RPG?

Second problem is really that there isn't really any good character building... stats gets autoplaced, and your skills are really limited to a few different options... items and crafting seems cool though...

Just feels a bit silly that I can pick up a sword with my demon hunter and the game basicly laughs me in the face since I have no attack skills I can use with a sword, so I can't attack with it at all (I can equip it to look badass though tongue.gif)

Don't care about the opposition to it tbh; yeah I have my own quirks (the lack of skill customization and stuff irks me), and the connection issues outright make me an unhappy silin.... but what can I say? It's dark, it's brutal... way more than I thought. Silin approves.

smile.gif I'm placing my preorder now. If you want my tag btw, it's the same as my fourm ID here. (Btw I am an exploratory player. Don't rush with me, cuz I'll leave your party very quick that way. tongue.gif I like taking my time exploring and shooting...)

Don't get me wrong, I played Diablo 2 a lot myself, expansion pack as well, but I still don't think it's roleplaying game or really much more than grinding game wink.gif but it at least manages to keep grinding somewhat exciting and rewarding.

Of course there's roleplaying in it, especially when you play a barbarian! tongue.gif Your cursing at the physical immune monsters and heavy bashing of the mouse buttons seemlessly blends in with your character.

So is it a bad thing that a part of me completely expects Torchlight 2 to out-Diablo Diablo 3?


--------------------
Partial Character List:
Chardon: Mystic theurge lich. Devourer of souls and those little powdery mints people have at weddings.
Akki Takki: Kobold rebuker. Raised as a petitioner in the court of Kurtulmak before fleeing.
Opkfrumjotunn: Troll beserker. Planar mercenary.
Az'kar: Bladeling assassin. Noms on his victims.
Tyiedrni Pohuunrakihu: Skeletal minion of Chardon. Not much of a reader.
Lorkata: Self proclaimed prophet of Chaos, Doomguard member.

Definitely more action than roleplay I'll give it that. That said, my old group Rp'd on D1 and D2 all the time, and we might do the same here if we get together. Yes, proally silly, but i don't care. tongue.gif I always enjoyed the story with the gameplay too.

Always considered it a hack-an-slash'er, I don't Rp in games where I'm limited to a few character archetypes.

Tho' I did name the barbarian Kithra tongue.gif . (she's gained some weight, too . . . .).

Got her to 13th, now working up a wizard, who seems pretty wimpy in comparison. IS wimpy in comparison, not real happy with the spells I've seen so far. Where's the cool spells, like Blaze?

Any interested in group once it's out lemme know - my ID in the game is Psimon#1114. Yeah, I broke my "no pre-order's" rule, I mean, c'mon, it's Diablo . . .

(tongue.gif An rp is what you make it no matter the game; you could Rp on the game of life getting *bleep*ed up the ass by a game warden but, hey, to each their own! Obviously some games are better than others for it but, meh.)

The best part for me is my friends are very barbarian/witch doctor lovers because they either like people doing the work for them, or just have to be a tank. The Demon Hunter is a very difficult class for them, and coincidentally, easily my best. smile.gif I'm fond of the DH because they do require a little bit more careful timing and planning than other classes (if you play alone, you know what I'm talking about; if you don't, well, then it's a joke because the D3 beta's difficulty is, honestly, laughable).

So yeah, when it comes out I expect to pick up the DH again. For now I'm just enjoying playing with giant axes, punching people in the face, or just throwing jars of spiders at them (seriously that's kinda creepy but awesome at the same time).
