Diablo 3 has a rather large fault in the way of the difficulty curve.

Normal: Completable by a small child.
Nightmare: Reasonably difficult, a decent enough challenge unless you abuse the Auction House (in which case you can breeze through it).
Hell: MUCH harder, will be too hard to finish without the use of the Auction House by the time you're in Act 3.  Some elite packs will kill you over, and over, and over.
Inferno: Dive-bombing straight off of the deep end into nigh-impossible territory.  The majority of elite packs are much harder than the boss fights, and some of them are statistically unkillable (perhaps due to bugs).  In Act 4, most players can die in 1 hit even with 70k+ HP.  Auction House (and I'm talking big money, like 500k per item minimum if you wanna be good) is mandatory past the Skeleton King.

As stated, differences of opinion are all well and fine, but lets try and keep it civil please.

I refer you to Battuta's, and my own, posts regarding the line-by-line objective rather the subjective qualities of SC2's writing over in Wings of Liberty thread, particularly when it's possible to do objective comparison via time invested in various themes and similar things with SC1.

We're a little beyond differences of opinion in this case. There is quantifiable bad stuff in the wings.

There is however a huge difference in civility between saying someone is wrong and calling them a cancer simply because they happened to like something you didn't.

Begin countdown until somebody who has no idea how the auction house works shows up to imply this is an intentional design feature that is part of some nefarious conspiracy.

And? I don't care about who is RIGHT or who is wrong. I'm saying, make your point in as polite a fashion as possible. Because looking like you are acting like a dick about pointing out when you feel or think somebody is 'WRONG ON TEH INTERNET' doesn't resolve the problem in a meaningful fashion.

Actually, let me just re-phrase that: I don't CARE. Warning issued by an Administrator. Have a nice day.

Holy profanity-filter! Player hitpoints can raise that high or is it simply a raw unreduced damage-from-monster figure? Or else?

On inferno difficulty it is indeed possible for player HP to reach that high.  It is also possible for elite level creatures with certain ability combinations to one shot you.  It is deliberately this way, players can pretty well one shot anything anyway, so all this means is that the playing field is level.  This is after 3 playthroughs mind you.

playing as barbarian on inferno is like there is quite a lot bosses since some simple packs can be quite deadly.

Yes, I'm doing a bit of a necro but it seems safe to finally ask this now that everyone is done arguing (for now, although I may end up resurrecting the argument :nervous:).

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

I might, if I get my sister to convince me to buy it.


EDIT

Sooo, finally bought it and played it. My impressions :

- Haters gonna hate, I loved the new artistic direction.

- Enjoyed the story, especially the twist at the end of Act III, while I was excepting something like that, I didn't quite expected it to turn out like it did.

- Very much liked the character building with the followers (I only played solo for now), nice addition compared to the storytelling of the previous titles.

- The gameplay is both faithful enough to the Diablo spirit and modern enough compared to older titles. If you don't like spending the game just clicking (I'm looking at you Spoon), what the **** are you even doing in that thread to being with :p

- Difficulty : Normal, as mentioned on top of page, is retardedly easy, which isn't surprising those days. From what I heard though, the other difficulties become very quickly quite a challenge. Will see when I get there.

All in all, already being a Diablo fan, I didn't regret the sixty bucks I sent that way.

To be honest, I did manage to complete the game (not that this is difficult on Normal difficulty), but it suffers from Bioshock syndrome. Now I know the story, I really have no vested interest in playing the whole thing again just to get shinier weapons, especially when those weapons are statistically no better when you take the difficulty into account...

I hate weapons that make you click spam in ME3 because it is not Diablo. This is. So it's all good.
