My (Brand New) Beta Experience So I was able to get into the Beta this morning and played for 15 minutes before heading off to work. My first observation was how dark the gamma settings are for full screen! Is this normal? I had to crank things up almost 100% to see anything. My monitors are calibrated often, so this really surprised me. Starting the game, I walked into town, killed a few zombies and found Leah -pretty much what I already expected from watching all the other beta videos. There were lots of NPCs to talk to. I clicked on a few and pretty much ignored the rest. I figured I could always come back to listen to the others if I really wanted to. What really started to bug me was how claustrophobic all the popups titles, quest windows, and other little things made the game feel. I really felt like I was trying to play the game behind all of them! I was pretty turned off by that. It's too much! -let me figure things out for myself! I've been on the Path of Exile beta for the last week and it's so refreshing how clear their screen is from popup windows, etc. In contrasting the two, Diablo III seems very over structured and restrictive in the way they hand out new skills. I really got the feeling I wasn't in control of the experience, but was rather guided by someone else. I need to play some more to get a better feel of the game (so yeah, this was only 15 minutes so far . . .), but I'm feeling rather let down. I had very high hopes for this game when it was announced several years ago. Anyone else have a similar experience? -or have a comforting word or two?
