I have gotten nabbed by server lag a few times and died, so I wouldn't recommend Hardcore mode.

I got suckered into playing along with friends, and it was all fun until this point. I have a very nicely geared character that gets 1-2 shotted by anything, and I'm playing the tank role (tanking gear, life on hit weapons, tanking skills etc.). We've cleared up to Act IV inferno and it's just silly at this point. Oh and you can farm for 4-5 hours and sometimes not find anything worth selling on AH. It's way too RNG (random number generator) for me to want to continue playing. If I farm for 4-5 hours I want something to show for it besides bags of gear I vendor or salvage for crafting materials. Oh and people are smoking crack for what they want to sell items for on the real money auction house (granted it was just implemented in last few days). I'll spend 250$ on tactile miniatures and paints, but 250$ for an item for my video game character... no thanks!
Overall 8/10. Great game, just once you get to a point it becomes way too tedious. You'll never farm the gear you need so you have to buy it from Auction House.

All in all I'd give it a 5 out of 10. It looks pretty, it has an average story, some good voice acting, and at times can be very fun to play. Of course the reason its fun to play is b/c its really not hard at all and there's no challenge. You click; stuff dies; you click some more.
Honestly, its pretty much like a Facebook game. You know how they're not really games.. all you have to do is log in to click on some stuff every so often and there's no risk of your game ever ending.
I got Skyrim last week and haven't missed D3 one bit since then. If you loved FO3 you should love Skyrim. Same company, very similar engine, same open world.
So I have been itching for a game since Fall out 3.

No thank you.
Oh, but never mind. You can always pay real money in the auction house to buy a new weapon that will let you get a bit further.
Double no thank you.

I just checked my auctions and saw that I had sold all 4 of my RMAH items. Apparently some people are crazy enough to spend real money on items. I think once I liquidate all of my gear I've farmed up and such and sell gold from it I'll clear 1,000$. Yet that is about a month of my gaming/painting/etc time wasted on that game alone. Meh.

Just wanted to add for the Blizzard authenticator, you don't have to pay for one as there's a free app from Blizzard for all OSs (even blackberry) that does the same thing.
I never thought I'd write this...but I agree with MonkeySloth on this one. ~ Adrift
