    Already beat the Beta. Game is fun but they stripped it of the ability to customize your stats and it has no fucking skill tree. I'm curious to see how Path of Exile is gonna compare. What puts me on the fence about the game is the always online DRM for fukken single player mode and the real money auction house.

    Beta was fun, but they're kinda turning it into too much of a WoW-like game.

    Against my better judgment I decided to get Diablo 3. I pre-ordered it at Gamestop and got it at midnight with all the other goofy neckbearded gamers.

    Now, here's the caveat: As you probably know already, Blizzard made Diablo 3 online (even if you play single player...). This being the case, they decided to make the server launch timezoned. Namely, 2:00 A.M. over here in the Midwest.

    I install the game and get it up and running around 2:04. Takes a while for me to log in. Between Demon Hunter (ranged class) and Wizard, I opted to play as a Demon Hunter first. I name my character and hit "create". I get a "timed out" message. So, I restart the game. I launch the game again, type in my password and, essentially, this happens:




    "The servers are busy at this time. Please try again later. (Error 37)." In plain language, it reads "We were foolish enough to make an offline, single player game into an online-based one. What's that? 5 million people trying to log into the one server at the same time? LOL!"

    Since I'm not a die-hard Diablo fanboy, and since I decided to get the game for the hell of it, I'm not mad. In fact, the irony of this is killing me with jocularity.

    Because I'm a pretentious douchebag. But mostly because I'm a bitch for collector's editions.
