Played Path of Exile this weekend during the stress test, it's without a doubt, everything that D3 should've been.

And Im pissed...thanks Blizzard. Thanks alot.

Yeah, Path of Exile does so many things right that D3 has neglected. I'll play both, but in all honesty I think that PoE is the superior game. It has a better skill system, barter system, customization, and potion management. I also prefer the dark, gritty, stifling atmosphere of the game, it reminds me a lot of what I liked about the original Diablo.

@Faction 3 Except for the gameplay. It's just not nearly as fluid.

@Faction 3 I have been playing Path of Exile for a while and I am now addicted to it. It's a great game, it has the kind of feel to the environment that I was expecting Diablo 3 to have.

I am still going to play the hell out of Diablo 3 when it releases.

Yup, Path of Exile is amazing. The skill system is brilliantly designed. The atmosphere does Diablo one better. And the art direction and animations (OMG, wavelets and foam on the beaches) are superb. While D3 may sell a gazillion copies, PoE will be the sleeper hit.

Path of what now?

Hmmm might have something other than Torchlight 2 to keep a watchful eye on.

I also played PoE over the weekend & I must say I came away very impressed with what the devs have done. They have some genuinely great idea and I will be keeping an eye on that game in the future.

As for how it compare to Diablo 3, well as I haven't played that yet so it would be unfair of me to compare them so I won't, i will leave that to others who are better informed or just more accomplished at trolling :p

@Faction 3 : been in both D3 and PoE betas for a while now and I think they're both fantastic. Very different feels, though. I'll certainly play both.

I didn't played the beta of Diablo III, but I've played PoE beta and I must say I'm not really impressed. Diablo III may become worse than PoE, but I was expecting more from both games...

I hope that, when released, PoE will show up as better than its current state... It has a lot of potential.

Recently got the D3 beta and loving it. Crazy fun - can't wait for 05/15. Demon Hunter seems cool, but Witch Doctor is more my style.

@(Unverified) Have there been any good witch doctor vids? I'd love to see them in action.

Maybe I've just grown to dislike Blizz so much now, but this gameplay looks really repetitive and boring to me.
This game just looking like the same old stuff with a very slight amount of polish on it. Nothing about this looks fun.
Anyone else feel the same?

@valdi313 You don't realize that this is a good thing until you sit down and play it. It's a hack 'n slash, dude. Hack 'n slashes are repetitive. That said, this game is retarded-addictive.

I'm still interested in this and would LOVE to play a demon hunter (it's the been the class I've been looking at since it was announced), but the always on DRM is complete BS and I'm still not a fan of the RMAH (it's not made of pure evil, but I don't think it's healthy for gaming as a whole).

@edgecrusherO0 : you're right, saying D3 has "always on DRM" is indeed "complete BS".

It's an online game. You play it online.

Yes Diablo and D2 had single-player modes; so did Warcraft / WC2 / WC3. But WoW is an online game, and so is D3.

But WoW don't have a single player. D3 has single player. Not all people in the world has internet you know. This sucks for people who just want to play the story alone but don't have internet.

Internet access is a human right in some countries :P
Not many people have electricity either, or food.
