I'll stick with one obsession for now, Skyrim.

i got in too. monk is pretty fun.

i haven't followed much of the news or hype since it was first announced at blizzcon 2-3 years ago. i think the graphics are a bit crappy for a 2012 game. i was expecting a lot more.

so... how does it feel? Is it still kind of the same point and click hack n slash?

how does it run? will it make everyone without a SLI computer cry themself to sleep?

I haven't played it enough yet, but I'm liking it. And yeah, it feels a lot like its predecessor.

And for me it runs like butter. But I have a hex core cpu and 2 GTX 560's in sli.

when you get around to it, get some framerates with and without SLI


for science, beta tester!




I have a 460 and want an idea how it will run

well with sli, 1680x1050 and everything maxed, it stays at 60fps and never moves. Later today I'll try it out without sli.

full detail, Q6600 running stock speeds, 1920x1080 on a GTX460. solid 60 fps.

its not a graphical powerhouse game. it hitches for me sometimes but smoothed out the more i played.

gameplay...you bind skills to right and left mouse, and numbers 1-5. click to move, click to attack, hold shift to stand still and attack a direction. feels just like d2. i like the way skill selection works.

you start with only one skill slot(binding) and as you level you can have more skills bound (maxes out at 6). also as you level, you gain more skills to put in those slots. what's nice, is they can be changed at any time with a short cooldown. my monk is set for damage, but if i need to, i can change skills to healing. there are also passive skill slots, and slots that modify your main skills that i haven't unlocked yet.

ok maybe I don't have to try with sli off. Likely won't change anything.

yeah. it feels like its just running in the WoW engine. nice textures and effects, but overall very low polygon count since the view is fixed and there isn't a huge draw distance.

i wish you could zoom out a bit.
