    Flux is joined by Grug and Azzure to talk about the highs and lows of the recently-concluded Diablo III beta test. All of the guys were lucky enough to be in the Beta almost from the start, and with the help of numerous fan suggestions in a big beta forum discussion thread, they review the highs and lows of the Diablo 3 Beta.

    Topics include the ever-changing difficulty, the slow pace of invites, technical problems, the glorious “Beyond the Gate” preview, the huge number of rare boss monsters, varied special areas and rare quests, the addition of skill runes, the unpleasant new skill UI and chat UI, and several more. Grug then tells the story of his recent encounter with Bashiok at PAX East, and relates more of the new info Bashiok shared with him, before the show wraps up with release night plans and first character choices.

    Approximate starting times for the various segments:

  • 0:30 — Beta retrospective; highs and lows.
  • 27:30 — Grug’s conversation with Bashiok at PAX east and the new info he revealed.
  • 37:30 — Release night plans. First class choices. Closing thoughts.
