With Diablo not being an MMO they sure treat all of the patches and bugs as if it were. Lets not mention the fact that all of this would of been avoided if they decided to stick with the game being offline. This company should be ashamed, the lack of care they seem to have when customers are not satisfied. Why spend sixty dollars for a game you can only play when it’s convenient for Blizzard. If the auction house isn’t down the whole game is not playable. There’s always something wrong. Lets take today for instance. I have a bit of free time so naturally I wanted to explore on my Demon Hunter. Allowed the new patch to load, logged in and I’m stuck at retrieving hero list.
Welcome to Episode 9! This week we are all over the place. There is no introduction that I could type to do this podcast justice. For one of the first times since we have started podcasting we just went with the flow, talked about random stuff, and had a damn good ol time. With that, here are a few of the things we discussed:

Excuse this blog for coming from a place of malice and frustration. I want to like Diablo I REALLY do. I want to love this game, hold it, cherish it. Before I can accept this game there are a few questions that should be addressed.
What is with this online only policy? Sometimes you want to unwind, play an rpg, just get lost in the story. I am having a huge issue with people jumping into my game and then all they want to do is rush through the acts, skipping the dialog.

Blizzard has something special planned on the night of May 14th in celebration of the highly anticipated midnight release for Diablo 3. Retail partners in the US, UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and the region of Taiwan will be welcoming gamer’s for the launch of Diablo 3.
A few things to expect, hourly drawings and giveaways, multiple contests with Diablo 3 related prizes, such as a laser-etched desktop PC from Intel, t-shirts, posters. Naturally, there will be cosplayers that have been added to the activities list. Also the development team is going to be attending, signing copies of the game (regular or collectors edition), available for purchase at the launch event.
In the US, the official launch event will be hosted by Blizzard and retail partner GameStop at:
The Great Wheel Court of the Irvine Spectrum Mall
71 Fortune Drive
Irvine, CA 92618
Undoubtedly, I’m slowly getting the feeling there is going to be a huge line for the California location. Even if I’m dead tired from my flight I am going to be attending, crossing my fingers there won’t be a line down the block. Hope to see some of you there, if you can spot me out don’t be afraid to say hi! I’m that one short girl wearing glasses (Shocking, I know), swimming within the sea of nerdom.
Geeks everywhere rejoice! Blizzard has announced when they will let their child out into the wilderness to roam free and spent countless hours with mass amounts of strangers.

Full details in the press release after the break. Continue reading
