Diablo 3 is basically Diablo 2 with better graphics: you kill mofos, sell stuff, buy better weapons and talk to Cain. I'm so happy about that.

What pisses me off and puzzles me is that it lags in single player, if while I play I download torrents without limiting bandwidth.

I knew you needed a constant connection with the server to play, but I thought that was for authentication... seeing it lagging makes it feel like the game is going on server-side, which would be a bit weird. I mean, do people at Blizzard really have so much money that they can afford to host a game session for every fucking user?

In that case, pirating it could be a little bit harder than usual.

BTW, my new PC rocks my socks, the i7 2700K jumps at 4.4 GHz with no sweat, and the SSD drive makes life worth living :)

Well I know the map data is all local, as I lagged out a bit the other day and was able to explore the whole area without a connection. One thing to check is make sure you have port forwarding or no restrictions on 1119 UDP/TCP (not sure which, so just do both) as that is the game clients port.

Message me your bnet name/email if you want, I am still playing... as many people bitch about the game, I feel it is a nice time waster that requires no additional cash after the purchase. Will most likely be playing it for years to come... oh and the fact that I bought my wife and son a copy too lol.
