I need to know so I can live vicariously through you all. Though my computer can run it, I cannot play it. From the gameplay I've viewed...it would destroy my life.
Post screenshots! Give me a little taste of the good stuff.
Questionor has already answered your post, but let me expand upon his answers;
Are people having fun?
I am having a blast in this game. It is absurdly fun. There have been a few hiccups with servers, but they seem to have nailed most of that down.
Are they all strung out on purple loots and massive boss fights?
Loot abounds, but most if it is pretty mediocre as far as stats, but that is a GOOD thing. They have not yet gotten into the mad escalation of loot that WoW has slipped into. Like Questionor said, on normal things are pretty easy, so lots of rare and unique items would make it sort of ridiculous. The boss fights, and I've only played a few, are fairly challenging, and occasionally you are mobbed by a lot of mobs and things can get pretty tense, especially after you've downed the Skeleton King and the mobs start scaling up a bit more steeply.
Are the environments hilariously destructible?
Absolutely! As are the enemies. My barbarian frequently hits zombies and opponents so hard that not only do they explode in gouts of blood, but their skeletal structure gets knocked right out of them and flies off. It's glorious! The rest of the environment has a lot of destructible scenery, and the game encourages you to go to town on them by fgiving little XP boosts when you smash, shoot, and otherwise blow up the scenery.
I'd suggest you play, but I don't want you to destroy your life. Still, you should play...
