There's no need to respec.  You learn every skill in the game via leveling up, and you can equip them or unequip them at will.  Each skill also has five variations (which you also learn via leveling) called "runes."  Each class also learns about 20 passive skills called "talents" via leveling.  Once you level up to 70, any experience you earn goes to your "paragon level" which is an unlimited number that gives you an elective bonus for each level.  The highest paragon level in the game (so far) is somewhere between 2000 and 2500, IIRC. 

Endgame in Diablo III (once you have every skill, rune, and talent at your disposal) is about choosing which six skills, which corresponding runes, and which four talents to equip, obtaining the best equipment possible to best suit your chosen skills and talents, and increasing that Paragon Level.  If you want, you can totally change up your combination of skills, runes, and talents at any time, either to suit your best equipment or your own tastes and preferences.

I definitely agree with Rob, it's a great couch co-op game. I played it with my wife for quite a while, too.

Mike nailed it with his explanation.  D3 is as casual or as hardcore as you want with no need to respec your character. 

And yes, jars of spiders and flamethrowers made of bats are usually the best way to handle most problems.  Don't listen to people like Stephen who argue about fucking wizard shit.

Pools of piranhas with giant crocodiles jumping out of them are pretty great, too. :)

used to be all about the stampede of zombie bears, but it seems that's not super effective anymore

Just to report back, in case anyone is interested. :)

Bought the game today and played it with my gf tonight. We both enjoyed it! She isn't into stat/gear very much, which I anticipated, but still had a good time. Looks like this'll be a regular one for us. Thanks all!

Rock on.  I have to say that I was SHOCKED to see the 2.3 patch hit consoles at all, let alone the same day as PC.  Pleased, but shocked. :)  I'm very happy to have the cube available.  I'm less thrilled about having to complete 25 bounties in order to collect the materials to use it a max of six times (if you make sure to complete the bounties for each act while it's the bonus act), but I imagine I won't care that much once I've got the stuff that's been sitting in my stash just because of a cool power into the cube.

Actually, I'm less than 100 bounties away from getting that final trophy for Platinum.  I probably won't feel as pressured to play after that, which will be nice.
