Diablo III Unleashed; World Productivity Teeters On Brink of Collapse

At 12:01 AM this morning, Diablo III launched.

Normally, at this point, I pontificate. I write a bit about the game, share some pithy comments, and offer some well-reasoned considerations of salient points. I'm a journalist. It's what I do. But my priorities have changed, and you're going to have to deal with that. Alternately, you can read my amazingly good preview. But really, you should be playing by now.

Why are you still reading? Are you blind? Did your PC freeze? Do I need to draw you a picture?

Fine. Here's a picture.



Diablo III is OUT.

PS - Dave? I'll be back in the office....on the 22nd. Month to be determined. Hold my calls, and please come by periodically to drop off tasty snacks and hydrating fluids. Bawls, if possible.

*ha ha* pain full reading this article because i am stuck in school.

PS: Just remember to atleast take a break to go to the bathroom. You dont want to do what cartman from south park did during the world of warcraft episode.

I hate you :(

I couldn't even create my char last night and then I logged out and couldn't log back in. Went to bed and got up 2h before work to at least clear the skeleton king a then some.

Now I'm sitting at work really wanting to develop some unknown illness to go home.

video game addiction is considered a mental illness,however, it probably wont let you get out of work.......didn't let me get out of school.

Don't hate me! I bring you gaming goodness! (and other stories). Besides the screenshot is one Blizzard sent. I'm not actually there yet.

Haha nice one Joel. I am hearing that they are having quite a few problems with the servers... So much for games that require you to be online at all times (annoying). My copy comes in the mail today and I won't even be able to play it for a couple of weeks :*-(

The joys of always-online DRM. Has anybody even been able to play it yet??

My daughter and her husband were on the Beta, but I don't know if they have the final game up and running yet.

my husband loves Diablo but we haven't had a chance to buy D3 this time around. I heard there's alot of server problems. Hopefully they will be fixed by payday. Enjoy everyone else :)

I have a pot of chili, two liter bottle of a&w cream soda, and diablo 3. I am ready for a all nighter.

Well I got in about 7, and played until I got kicked at 11:45. Guess that means it's time for bed huh? Servers are down again. Hope I didn't lose any progress, as I had just got back into town after defeating the skeleton king. I'd post a screen shot, but that didn't work either lol.

I have to say though I am REALLY liking this game, the spell effects are awesome! And nothing beats watching your enemies go flying through the air as you fry them into crispy critters :-)

Really want to jump on this game but I have been focusing on finishing one game before I start another. Probably just finish up The Walking Dead since that should be relatively short.

What was up with all the servers being down and/or errors people were screaming all over the net about?

I was spam clicking with my mouse so much to day i thought i was going to break it lol.

I honestly felt sad while it was a well made game. I don't feel it has advanced its play enough. It feels like diablo II which ok but its almost a decade old. Gaming has changed and I heard all this greatness about graphics. But i was unimpressed, honestly this was the least graphically advanced game I have played all year.
