Yeah, I know; as if it wasn't bad enough the first time round, now it is coming out on PS3.

I guess their thinking behind this is:

"Oh, nobody liked our game. Instead of fixing it or starting again with Diablo 4, let's just re-release it on console. Then all the 10 year olds can play it for 5 minutes and quit after they realise how awful it is."

It was good to begin with, but soon turned sour. I suppose I am being a bit harsh - it was no Colonial Marines, for sure - but it did have its fair share of issues.

I got my monies worth with this game at least! Torchlight 2 on the other hand - that was good.

Yes it was a shame about Diablo 3.0 for a while there i really enjoyed it. Is Torchlight 2 anything like Torchlight 2.0?

I am sure the console jockeys will love it. What do you think Greg? :-)

Dunno Greg, we are a simple people really. As long as there is lots of movement and colours I think it will do ok.

Well I don't recommend the game, even to a console jockey. Get Torchlight 2.0 instead - it is everything Diablo 3.0 should have been and more.

I think you under estimate just how easily pleased we are. Spoon some baked beans onto the pavement and we will be entertained for hours.

Fair enough. Your money, your funeral, you're that kind of person. I would still say get Torchlight 2.0 instead - it's so much better. It is better at being Diablo 3.0 than Diablo 3.0 is. Much like Colonial Marines vs Alien Swam.

Actually I think I am getting myself a bit confused, I though Diablo 3.0 was a first person game set in post London after some magical apocalypse. I think I have my wires crossed.

Yeah you are mixing it up with Hellgate London - a dead MMO that was actually rather good until the company went under. I unfortunately was one of the stupid plonkers that spent 100 squid on a "Life-time Subscription". Little did I know, that meant 3.0 months of game play until the company went bust and all the servers went down.

Although I had heard they have now released it as free-to-play and re-opened some servers. Maybe it is worth taking another look as I really enjoyed that. It was a bit like Borderlands 2 with guns and stuff, plus it had classes and was more RP-ish. It also had random levels which were quite cool.

You are obviously the kind of person that does not understand the concept of an MMO: No.

Some info on Hellgate as it stands now:

On November 12, 2009, Korean-based game developer HanbitSoft announced the re-development of Hellgate: London (authorized by the former Flagship Studio) had been completed.[41] The new project, entitled Hellgate: Resurrection, was slated for beta testing on November 17, with an official launch date of December 8. Monthly Subscription and Free Basic Content will be the two business models adopted in the game.

Hellgate: Resurrection will be operated via new servers, offering players wholly new services. Though the game's source code does come from Hellgate: London, many changes have actually been made in its gameplay, e.g. the cancellation of the level cap – 50, the addition of the character advancement system and the improved class balance.

Hellgate: Resurrection will also have The Abyss Chronicles update that wasn't able to be in the original game. Details about the new content were not unveiled at the press conference, but from the planned addition of 10 regions and 3 bosses, it will certainly be a large-scale update.

Part of Hellgate: Resurrection includes the new expansion Hellgate: Tokyo. Said to have a graphic style similar to that of Hellgate: London, the new add-on is set in the future within a destroyed Tokyo, as well as Osaka and Yokohama. The add-on was slated for release on March 2010.

Closed beta testing for the NA "North American" server of Hellgate: Resurrection ran from June 3, 2011 to June 5, 2011.
Open beta for Hellgate: Eternity began on June 30, 2011.

Okay, here is a rough breakdown as to why for you Greg:

MMO's have very different infastructure to standard multiplayer games, since they are capable of supporting millions of poeple online at once. As such, the server-side component is never distributed to the general public and run by the company that owns the game. This contains the bulk of everything. The client runs a completely different "version" of the game, that requires it talking to the server or else it flat-out will not run as it does not contain any of the actual "game-code".

Standard multiplayer games like L4D, Borderlands etc. are "complete", in that all the code resides with the client, both for hosting a game and joining a game - meaning it works without the "special servers".

In short: without an MMO server, you can't play the game at all.
