I am not surprised at the success of Diablo 3′s sales. Blizzard did a great job hyping up the game, and waiting 12 years or so added a little to the excitement. I have recently read articles complaining about Blizzard and the products it makes, and for some reason it is hard for me to believe that ALL those who complained and attempted to boycott blizzard have not played Diablo 3. There was a lot of griping about only being able to play online, however, considering the success of the game, the few percent that are not playing and boycotting it are missing out on a great gaming experience. In my opinion.

Initial Impressions (Mike, Joe, and Sarah)
Diablo 3. Wow, we have been waiting a long time. Is it amazing new gameplay? Is it an MMO since it has an auction house? Is it dumbed down? No, No, and ummm no. The game, Like Starcraft 2, is a refinement on a working core of an already great game. Not the usual game company sequal but rather the polish and work that Blizzard is known for. If you never liked the first two games, you likely won’t like this either. Multiplayer is easy to get going and even easier to play. Loot falls for only you (I definitely don’t miss dropping items on the ground to trade). I can see that crafting system is going to come in handy as well. I have been playing the wizard, who despite looking foppish, is quite powerful. This is especially true in multiplayer. The visuals and music of this game are amazing.
