I just received an email regarding an open beta weekend for Path of Excile. This game is currently in beta and is a persistent online action RPG (very similar to Diablo, etc.) It appears to be quite interesting and can be found here: http://www.pathofexile.com/publicweekend/

Actually I've been hearing some bad press about D3 and really hesitant to preorder it. While yes I liked 1 and 2 I'm just not sure I have the motivation to play 3 with what I'm already going to be playing.


Thanks for the info on this though :) I might look into it as well

Grinding Gear Games (developers of Path of Exile) is pretty cool with beta members telling others about some parts the game, so I can say this:

As a beta member, Path of Exile is a LOT of fun. Right now it's a little lacking on the content side, but I believe that it's the Diablo 3 that a lot of Diablo fans (including myself) wished D3 could be (unlike D3, PoE doesn't seem so...simplified. It's not a very casual game. ;P). Just a little more time and a few more updates until the Open Beta, and I think PoE will be a more enjoyable game than D3. ;D

Although if you like the ARPG/Diablo-like gameplay, I suggest also checking out Grim Dawn if you haven't already. It's being developed by a lot of the same people who developed Titan Quest, if you've played that. Both of these games I'm really excited for.

Well...of course GW2 comes first, but you know, these games for single player time. :P

The only thing I ever really enjoyed about diablo, was kill a boss and having piles and piles and piles of stuff drop. Mind you I enjoyed it enough to play a ton of Diablo 1&2, but for me to be interested in such a game, similar has to happen.

I loved Diablo and D2. Im really unhappy that you must play on battle.net even for a single player game. Im pretty excited about Torchlight II...long live Lan play.

Loved D1! Was what got me into online gaming. Was in a guild for D2 nearly a year before it came out and was in several of the betas. Guild played it for all of a month after it came out..then we jumped to EQ. Played a little Diablo here and there after that, but the main attraction for me are the persistent MMORPGs.

Been hearing bad press about D3. Heard they even took away the too 'cutesy' non-combat pets. BOOOOO! Sorry, but when it comes down to it I adore my sparkly, shiny and completely useless pixels.

Been a Blizz fan girl for a long time now, but after seeing the slow decline in quality in WoW, I just don't know if I want to invest my time/money in another Blizz product right now. Of curse that is subject to change. I may see a shiny D3 box at a local retailer and it may just be to much for me to resist :P

The biggest problem I have with diablo 3 is what blizzard did to the team that built diablo 2. Not 1 of the developers from d2 touched d3. They got forced out of the company and ended up forming flagship studios. Now most of them work on firefall. The game may have the blizzard name but the minds that made d2 so great are no longer there.

Might also look up mythos. Its original design was by flagship studios it was like mmo diablo with crafting. Its a free2play. After flagship went south the beta went offline till a new company picked it up and finished it.
