I'm a level 4 monk. Just got kicked out due to a server crash or something. I think I've been able to play for a total of 3 or so hours altogether and it's been a blast. I'm able to play it at enjoyable graphics level with my aging card. I'll definitely be getting this.

Joetron: What's your rig's current setup? Good reviews, and favorable system requirements, may make me pick up D3.

I currently have a Q6600 with 3GB of RAM and an 8800GTS 320MB running Win7 Ultimate.

So, up until about midday yesterday, I was playing at 1650x1080 full-screen. All graphic settings were at "high" except shadows and I ran with AA turned off. It chugged very little. So, I cranked up all of the video options to high and enabled anti-aliasing. The game continued to run at a reasonable rate. It would chug a bit when there was a lot of stuff going on but I could even live with that.

Ideally, I would still get a new GPU. But the fact that it played and looked reasonable enough for my tastes (which granted may be lower than yours) was nice to find out. It means I can play D3 without having to get a new card first. My biggest worry was that it would be unplayable unless I was running in super-low graphics mode or something. But, thankfully, that wasn't the case.

New NVIDIA card - so good, so expensive

You know you want one (or two!) in your rig. Of course for the cost of two of them you could probably buy 3-4 whole new rigs instead

What I really want to know is did they fix the fact that shotguns are WAAAYYYY too overpowered in COD. Is that part of this whole lawsuit? Because that's important.

I mean, no fucking way is a M1014 blast from 40m a one-shot kill. That's utter bullshit, bro.

Anyone else playing Diablo 3? I *LOVED* the first two games. They scared the shit outta me back in the day. I don't get the scary feeling as much with the latest. The DRM is ridiculous, though! I'll get back with more once I played a few more hours on it.

I played the recent public beta of Diablo 3. I haven't bought the game yet. I should wait until I'm done with Skyrim.
