1. Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile each have D3 by one testicle.

The screams from Jay Wilson are so, so sad....

3. ROFLMAO!! You got that right!

My wife and I harmed our finances for a month, throwing $120 on two copies of the game, because stupid me -- I thought that it would be an awesome smash and we'd recoup it easily through the Real Money Auction House.

I've only finished the game with one character on the lowest difficulty, and my wife and I have only duo'd as far as Act 2 Normal. There's just no incentive to keep playing. The itemization sucks and the skill system is just kinda dumb, honestly.

Path of Exile has a huge grid full of pathways for skills, like Final Fantasy X; and of course Torchlight 2 is pretty much what D3 should have been.

5. It is worse then that

For years afters D2 came out (damn near a decade), there were always thousands of games yet D3 has managed to almost dis-appear after just a few months. I guess it's good that they are still trying to fix it but I'm not sure I see them going in the right direction.

4. this makes me happy.

I didn't buy the game because of the constant internet connection requirement. I have no interest in multiplayer for Diablo. I would've bought it otherwise.

6. Blizzard has made some pretty big changes lately.

 

and I've been re-playing now for a few days or so.

It has a very different feel away from the frustration and spinning in one spot where I got stuck in Inferno desert and decided to just leave it alone for a while. I can actually make a bit of money and collect it for better equipment. Still can't compete with the 20+ million prices, but slowly inching up to more power. Getting inferno Diablo on repeat runs reminds me of D2 a bit. which is nice

There is a new system where you can choose the difficulty of the Monster Level (up to 10 levels) more difficult the more MF and GF you get. And the change a few weeks (?) ago where you still level up after 60 for some stat improvement and MF and FG. Your real level stays at 60, the new level thing can go up to 100.

I found a juicy jewelery plan and a few odds and ends here and there and my repairs don't keep me from making some money. That may be very different in the higher Monster Levels but for now I like just dawdling around and collecting junk and stuffing my coffers.

I'm not a very competitive player so I think that is why I've been more patient than most about D3. I know I'll have this one for a long long time and can wait a bit for wrinkles to be ironed out. Plus it's not a subscription which to me means lots. For the first time ever I did sign up for a couple months of WoW, played maybe 10 days and got bored all to hell and haven't clicked it again.

I wish I had the menu most of you guys had available for some of the awesome games mentioned here. I have a Mac so I am pretty well destitute of choices in the regard. Maybe that is why I'm not willing to ditch D3 yet, too.

8. Guild Wars 2

is coming out with a Mac client. It's a great game, I'm loving it.

EDIT: The GW2 Mac client is out! It's also non-subscription like D3. If you decide to play, I have some crafters and I can pass on things like bigger bags, and make weapons and armor.

9. GW2 looks really, really good! damn.

 

I've been checking out some vids and what I see I like. I don't think they have a Mac trial version but will look further.

This may be my Xmas wish list item. Thanks for the intro.
