I'm considering purchasing a hard copy of D3 to avoid the unholy download times I can only imagine will plague digital purchasers on May 15th. I don't pretend this will spare me any in-game lag/frustration; rather, I'll be simply comforted by the knowledge that I have the game safely installed.
...but I haven't purchased a hard copy of any game in years (PC-based D2:LOD may have been the last one). So, then, my horrible, embarrassing and terribly dated question is: do you think then I'll need to keep that DVD-ROM handy post-install to actually play the game? That can't be possible, right?
Thanks and I'm sorry,
