One of the half-wits that I work with got in and still hasn't downloaded the beta.  (Or Bee-tuh as they say in England)  Joyous.

I am a big Fat NO on this one.   I have to agree with everyone else saying this is a bad thing for the PC industry if this is successful.   It also is to early for us to know how the game actual plays and if it will be any fun. 

Isn't the Diablo, Titan Quest, Dungeon Runner game play starting to get stale for some of us?

I know I get sick of running the same thing over and over again on the overly small Chance I may get a decent piece of loot that I can actual use.

Damnit!

And to answer your question, deadhead - it's a resounding NO. Assuming the core game is fun to play, anyway. I'm a loot whore! (and how)

Well, while they're working out the kinks on our local video, there is a lenghty one over at VE

Maybe that was a poor point to take a video or not the best classes to show, but I thought that looked terribly boring.  Not to mention the repetitive gun fire sounds.  I'm sure the game is deeper than that, but it looked a bit like a poor version of Serious Sam with loot or something.  I'd like to see some melee combat and see if that looks any more appealing.

Yeah, it looked incredibly mediocre and repetitve-awful weapon sounds too, and I hated the way the guy recording the video's gun did not move at all while he shot for 5 minutes.

Given there are only a few skills in the bottom bar, I'm assuming this is from early in the game.  Most Diablo-style games start out slow, with mostly basic attacks and a few skills, and then got more interesting as you acquire more spells or skills.
