I could just download it free off a certain website.
However I will not be able to play the Online mode.
I only spend money on games where online is the most important part. I could even borrow a friend battlenet account and just play out the single player.
The online on the other hand has me interested.
What about the PVP mode is that something like HON? What features does online have thats worth getting it for?
If I could play this for like 4 years simply because of the online I would buy it.
Do you like playing dungeon crawlers with friends?
If so, buy it.
If not, don't.
Take this from a former pro D2 player:
The majority of what makes the Diablo games truly fun is the multiplayer. Without multiplayer you can still have a decent time of it, but the replay value is greatly diminished.
My advice is that you try it out through your method, and if you later realize that you want multiplayer, you can buy the game and start over online.
^ aah I see. I got the free open beta weekend account and I really like it. Not hearing people talk with mics though But I assume the real deal will have lots of people with mics etc. The artwork is simply amazing its like something to die for. I gots my mind set on buying it
you don't need mics for diablo. You move together like you have somekind of hive mind.
Also multiplayer is were it is at, how else are you going to show off your characters epeen.
Not sure if it'll be hacked since skills, mobs, loot and EVERYTHING is done server side.
So it'll have to be emulated.

UT Sexy Announcer Mod - You Are The Last Man Standing
also golds, stash, blacksmith and jeweler are account shared in D3
that whole being able to craft gear idea seems kinda stupid to me... finding loot is what its all about. Good thing the stash is combined though, just hope its big enough to store a heck of a lot of crap in it (im a real hoarder).
why would anyone want to play Diablo solo :S
my god i still remember the first, got bored so fast, Diablo isnt built for solo play tbh
personally im not even gonna bother with D3, Blizzard North aint making it and other games of the genre seem far more interesting
my personal favourite being
that mouse skill seems well fun, love the whole interaction with the enviroment aswell, vid shows throwing torches into tents burning it down and sending the inhabitants into a steaming rage, knocking enemies back into a spike rack actually impales them on said rack and ofcourse that Grappling Hook action.
To not be a douche and support the company/industry.
I enjoyed diablo 1 and 2 most when I played it solo. Multiplayer is just a cluster**** of spamming spells and it's more grindy than any MMO out there to get to level 99.
Yes, I get it, the risk of getting PK'd and having to level up from 0 again is "amazing", nah it really isn't. Multiplayer was maybe good for trading items, other than that, playing with randoms on the internet was never so anonymous and boring as on Diablo 1. Diablo 2 was again, decent multiplayer, but you can get about the same experience doing it solo. Only time I'd play multiplayer would be if I played with some RL friends.

Stats are like women in bikinis, they are interesting to look at however they don't show you everything.
one big reason is TRADING.
and obviously just multiplayer alone. it doesn't need to be said why that's more fun than playing alone, unless you're a foreveralone.
