It affects you when they're in your guild or your party and decide to stop actually playing the game, or doing their job, just to brag about their level or ruin what would be a sweet social chemistry of people just playing effectively and not giving a fuck about their level or gearscore. Or fill up guild chat with the same epenis comparing bs. Like I said, happened at the start of every single WoW xpac - and sure enough this may not be WoW and there's no huge social bases in D3 like there is WoW, but the archetype is still the same.

$5 says it won't happen anyway.

Oh I totatally agree with you with WoW, thats the joy of any mmorpgs but with diablo 3 it looks like this wont be as much of an issue without guilds and all that crap. You will have people rushing to be the first but they will only be able to really brag on forums and media websites. Personally im going to stay away from battle.net forums until im max level to not ruin the experience. My first play through will be solo also, no party action for me.

wow i will stay away until i finish so as not to ruin my first playthrough but i will likely use whatever item wiki there is to sort my shit out.

pretty sure the forums will be filled with people bragging about how awesome they are for the next couple of months at least anyways. think i will just stick to this forum for the next few weeks.

I really hope it works with a wacom pen, used to love playing WoW with wacom.... thinking the whole left button right button mashing might be a bit of a bitch on the pen tho.

Can't see that working with the button mashing! Waaay too much effort. Unless you could key map the mouse buttons to your keyboard or something?

Not unless it's for something particularly awesome and has my neatest handwriting.

Strange, JB is where I got mine. Different stores for different... stuff, I guess.

Also just turned my piddling laptop screen into my 40" LED TV, since the +1 prefers I have my xbox in the loungeroom it means it's been useless - until now.

yea i tested the game on my 46" bravia on laptop native 1300x700 and it ran sweet, would look pretty epic on full hd i bet, only got my graphics card sorted after the beta closed.

just need to get comfortable which is hard with a key board and mouse in the living room.

if anyway wants to tee something up tonight i'll be online from 5:30 (sydney time). looking at doing a solid 8-12 hours tonight lol

Noob question. I only ever played D2 single player. Do you have parties and shit in D3, where you have a healer and shit like that? Or is it more an every man for themselves zergfest?

reminds me i gotta add all u ****s on bnet. would still like chat channels though so it's easier to get a party going. we'll all be at different stages of the game over the coming days and you'd want to play with people who are at a similar stage to you

No healing class like an MMO so it's essentially everyone for themselves.

yea all classes are essentially playable solo, so more area effect classes, and help abilities like slow to aid the tank classes.

Elective Mode let's you choose what powers you have assigned to what mouse/keyboard buttons (so you aren't trapped with Primary for left and Secondary for right etc) and Advanced Tooltips gives you more info on hotbars, items, info etc.

yeah in your blizz account you can set it to show price in USD when purchasing. it will change the amount to 90 SGD (singapore), which worked out to be about $69 (probably a bit more now with the currency tanking). not the cheapest price and being only 3 hours to go there isn't heaps of time to prepare if you were planning to log on at launch.

if not walk in to a shop, JB/Big W reportedly selling for $59
