    Week to go. Little less than. I haven't been this psyched over a game since WoW first came out. Due in part to me being a fan of good ol' WC3.

    Hopefully some baggers get this so we can roll around in game like a bunch of social hermits.

    Going to go Wizard or Monk. Outside chance of Witch Doctor.

    Figured D3 needed a proper thread, as the beta is about done. Didn't see one yet, so if there is, and I'm a cunt, then go fuck yourself.

    Did I mention I'm excited?

    I pre-ordered it, and pretty excited about it. I am a pretty casual type player though, but will definitely be on a lot for the release.

    The last computer game I'll play. I'm ready to load it up. I remember buying the first game on a whim and falling in love with the constant clicking. Now I get to do it many years later.

    Stay a while, and listen!

    12 years ago Diablo2 took 18 months of my life. I can't do the crack-games anymore. I need games I can quit and not obsess all night about.

    I don't have an addictive personality, so it's easy for me to say 'Do it faggit'. If it's that addictive, you'd be wise to avoid it. It's going to be a clusterfuck of fun though.

    Why do I need an internet connection to play this on single player?

    Interesting read on it. Gamers do have a point.

    I don't like the idea of having to have a internet connection to play a single player game... But I'm over it (this certainly isn't the first game to implement this). And I always have the choice to not play if it bother me that much.

    Back to the topic at hand. I got my email confirmation that my copy of D3 has shipped :) Although probably won't get to play until the weekend.

    Don't know anything about it but I'm laid up again from foot surgery and started playing WOW. Got the free edition all ready to go.
