I made my mind up, and I am not getting it. I called around, had no luck at all with Game Stop finding a Collectors Edition. On ebay, they are outrageously over priced.
The more research I do, I think I will buy Torch Light II and not even stick with Diablo. I do believe the things about the story being dumb downed, cause I know from experience they sure as hell dumbed down the Starcraft story, and created so many plot holes for the sequels. I'm also majorly turned off by the no skill points, and the auction house crap. I loved playing D1 cause I would find random stuff. I still remember finding a club called Gnarled Root or something like that, oh how I loved that item. It appears Blizzard went the money route thinking nothing but profits with that dumb auction house.
I do appreciate the replies guys, you guys are a blessing for the help.
So for my birthday this year, I'm taking 50 dollars on the Jimi Hendrix Winterland box, and going to buy Torch Light II. As much as I wanted that Collectors Edition of D3, it's not worth it if I'm not going to put massive hours into it. Unlike SCII, I've put hundreds of hours into that game, and have won over 1,000 games in multi player. I absolutely don't feel like I wasted a dime on that box set.
