Failed!
They're "English(eu)" localisation has the US mmddyyyy date format  Roll Eyes

ISO 8601 ftw!

Game looks like it might be good though - which, given the addictive nature of D2 is a very very bad sign!

Meh, they're gameplay video played through Adobe Flash Player causes FireFox to suck up almost half a gig of memory, causing the whole app. to grind to a halt.
By the time you reach the end of the video, it's stuttering every half-second =(

And this is on a quad core machine with 2gb of ram!
I can't imagine what it's like a more run-of-the-mill machine!

What Firefox version are you running? The difference between 2 and 3 is noticeable imo.. version 2 uses a lot more. I'm running Firefox 3 and I have 2 gig of ram as well but it runs ok till the end here.

Pretty nifty! I'm not sure I like the click-a-thon though.

I'm on 2.0.0.14 atm...if it aint broke,.... Wink

Though I would have expected the flash plugin to be the culprit of the excessive memory consumption, it isn't immediately obvious how upgrading to Firefox 3 would rectify such a problem?

Flash is probably the culprit here since the video is pretty high quality (for a flash video), you could use the firefox extension 'DownloadHelper' and just use it to download the video and watch it in a desktop media player.

That must be some nifty filter to detect me like that  Wink

tbh I had given up hope for a diablo 3, I hope it will be as good as the first two versions.

Ah good old diablo. The sshots look very nice. Though thought they wouldn't get this out till wow was dieing since it would make a large number of there fans stop playing wow to play it...

Haha yea.
Though the last one did have good online support. I wonder if this one would improve on that...

your making it sound as if the original diablo didn't  Huh

tbh there wasn't much difference between diablo 1 and 2 online experience wise accept for the latter the characters where actually stored at battle.net to combat cheating.

The graphics sure looked pretty but felt really dreamy, it seems a lot like WoW in many aspects to me, I hope that doesn't have a negative affect overall.

What Firefox version are you running? The difference between 2 and 3 is noticeable imo.. version 2 uses a lot more. I'm running Firefox 3 and I have 2 gig of ram as well but it runs ok till the end here.

I am running FireFox 3 and the video still took over a half gig of memory, but I have 4 gigs total so it didn't stall. It's just that there are a lot of frames and detail in that video.
