Sounds like maybe the Nvidia drivers didn't install correctly. Can you play any other games?
Are you using a 32-bit virtual drive for Diablo 3?

is there a way to indicate that diablo 3 should use a 64-bit virtual drive :S

I have a feeling that "multi-arch" is not installed in Ubuntu. What this means is most games are only 32-bit compatible and you are using a 64-bit Operating System.
So you will need to install 32-bit libraries to make Ubuntu compatible with games.

Here are some instructions that might help you get them installed: 32libs multiarch

Good idea. I use Mint 16 32-bit because its just easier. I want to make the Linux experience as easy as possible.

Don't forget to install the Nvidia drivers too.
After that, you should be able to play hundreds of games.

Did you install the Nvidia drivers again?

Interesting, ok lets get some debug outputs going.
since you can get into the menu, that is a start, but there definitely seems to be something with DirectX, drivers, or libraries going on.

Launch Diablo 3 with PlayOnLinux, but click debug (on the right) instead of "Run"
Then copy/paste the output here.
