More news probably to come at Gamescom. And now we also know that The Dark Below is most likely the next WoW expansion, not Diablo III.

EDIT: The Dark Below trademark application is most likely just a hoax.

I've played over 500 hours of DMC2 and consider the game good.

Day 1 for sure. I had lots of fun with D3. As much as D2? Of course not, but that was high school.

The game has certainly come a long way since launch, with the biggest changes still forthcoming sometime after Blizzcon in an itemization patch. Depending on how that patch changes the game, I might be willing to pick this expansion up.

Some (read: most) people would say that Diablo III was the best 50+ euros they had gained. The power of RMAH.

Uhm... I am pretty sure 90% of D3-Gaf surpassed your D3 gametime within the first quarter after the game's release :P

Hence, why I didn't say D3-GAF, silly. Also, no one played as much as I did the first couple of weeks.

Yeah, the PvP-mode is called "Herp".

So....what can this be? We know that the Enchantress hinted heavily at the Prophet, who seemingly was able to do so many things to this world without being noticed. And that is definitely a portal in question.

If a portal does not lead to hell, where does it lead then? Some place that goes beyond that? Are they going to pull a Void on us in Diablo as well, where there is an uber-evil that threatens both races? (If so, booo?)

One prediction I am going to make: Ladders will be back.

Great, now give me that Itemization update for Diablo III Vanilla that was promised for "1.09"/"1.1". Not touching the game again until I see it.

I squeezed as much time out of it as possible as I could. I love the feel of combat in the game, no other loot RPG comes close. Too bad the itemization and skill building is still crap.

Given the console versions that exist .. any chance Blizzard throws us a bone and allow a non RMAH/AH Mode?

I would have said offline mode, but doubt that.

I really enjoyed it, but I'm not super hardcore into Diablo. Played through the first and second difficulty and most of the way through the 3rd before quitting.

Really interested to see what this is. I'd be up for going back if they added enough to get me in. A campaign 50%-75% the length of the original, at least one more new class, and skills for the old stuff would be what I'd want from just a casual perspective.

Yes, the new lead designer was not opposing it. The usual "we need to figure out how this works" bullshit was still there somewhere, which is kinda rage-inducing, because it can be optional, and the VAST majority of serious D3 players would jump on that train instantly, for the chance of a fresh economy with the upcoming loot revamp.

Eagerly awaiting this. D3 has its flaws, but it was overall a superior package than D2 to me. I'll play it solidly for a month, stop playing for a while, then revisit it maybe two months later. So long as you don't binge stupid amounts on it, it has a lot of staying power.

Fuck this game.

And not to be on Yoshi's dick, but you have no idea the time he put into this game. Hell the time I put into this game was crazy. It's fucked. I want to still love it, but blizz is more concerned with working on the ports, than fixing the problems. Really sad man, this game was beyond a let down. And it sucks, because I still want to love it.

My inner Nostradamus tells me:
One new Act. Old classes retun. Runewords. Charms. Fixed item stats that the main weapon is no longer the most important item. Crazy item suffixes like in D2. No longer build around the AH.
