Here I go again, day three of taking about Diablo III beta.  When I  tried to log in, got an error.  Turns out they were doing something to the severs.  A note said keep trying to log in later.  So waited a bit till 7pm, then got in.  There are five characters to pick from (I think).  I picked the monk because it is a new character for these games.  As for the game its self it looks pretty awesome.  Gameplay is kind of like Diablo 2 but all new at the same time.  You still click to move and hit the bad guys.  How ever it has all kinds of new stuff.  Played for all most two hours [Update played for about 2 hours 47 minutes].  Still has the same addictiveness.  From what I seen so far it still as follow the path, go here, kill that, go here and move to a new spot.  Was hoping it would be a little more open world.  May be later on in the game, or may be not [Update the map does get bigger as you move along].  You can play up to level 13 in the beta.  Still this game is great.  It will be huge for sure.  Just not sure if I am going to buy it.  More of a console person.  The open beta ends some time Monday (April 23, 2012).
