Diablo III: Gizmomash’s First Look

In just under two months from now, the carpel-tunneling click-fest that is Diablo III will finally be available to the masses.  But I can’t wait 45 more days, and thankfully I won’t have to.  When I first saw that Blizzard had finally given us our beta access to their games (Mists of Pandaria included) which we had endlessly pleaded for, I nearly dropped my iPad and ran straight home.  The game downloaded quickly and within a few brief moments I was in the world of… whatever the world is that it takes place in, ready to face the endless onslaught of the undead from Hell.  Thankfully, the NDA has been lifted completely now that the game is in the Public Closed Beta period, so I’m going to whet your appetites by sharing my first hour of Diablo III with you.

Since it’s still in beta, we can’t give it a full review as there’s many things that could be subject to change until its release.  However, since this does feel like a well polished final product already, I’m going to give you a pre-review of the game instead – kind of like a review, but technically a preview.
