    Yet another epic Blizz fail!

    So the suckers on the East coast who shelled out up to 100 bucks for this lamefest of FAIL of game are going to be RAGING when they go to their midnight launch, grab their pre-ordered copy from the gamestop geek and rush home to install just to find out that they have to wait until 3 am to play! Ha ha ha! Classic Blizzard! Always putting their own interests and needs ahead of their customers.

    This will go down as the worst game launch in history. You watch.

    Re: Yet another epic Blizz fail!

    Riddle of Steel's avatar looks like an awesome mustache devouring a malformed nose.

    Last night I mixed two satchets of 3-in-1 coffee in a single mug. It didn't taste any different. This is where I anticipate other people putting up the "so hardcore" gif, which I sort of deserve.

    My cousin's getting married on the DIII launch day! The wedding was planned before the release date was announced, of course. I'll be banqueting happily back in my backwater ancestral hometown, where there is only one restaurant that anybody ever has wedding banquets at. It's the sort of town where you can catch a fish in the morning, kick open the door and hold it up by its tail and say "COOK THIS" and the kitchenstaff will do just that. By the time I get home and get online, it will be more than 12 hours after the servers open, and to be honest I will probably get some sleep first. Maybe that will save me from the rush-hour traffic? heheheh.

    Before you reply to this thread, especially if you disagree with the OP, remember this: There are people out there who identify strongly as right-wingers, who vote conservative, who tell the nuns to care less about the poor and more about condemning the homosexuals. These people will always feel what they want to feel, no matter what the news is. Facts will not convince them, truth will not set them free. In their minds, they are right, and they will close-mindedly ignore all alternative opinions. Although most gamers are more left-leaning and liberal and intellectual, remember that some of us have Opinions that we will Never Change. Before you castigate Riddle of Steel, or mock him with things like "See you at launch day" and "Yeah, three hours, I've been waiting so long, like I care about three hours" or even say something like "don't feed the trolls" - just remember, he's a person too! And although he is being brutish with his opinions, let him be. Just remember: A significant portion of Americans still believe that there were WMDs found in Iraq after all; they also think that Obama is making death panels to decide whether your grandma gets health insurance. At least Riddle of Steel won't be able to vote for Rick Santorum! Take heart, his anger will only affect your enjoyment of the game if you get caught up in it too.

    There's a Chinese saying: 退一步,海阔天空。(literal trans: take a step back; the sea broadens and the sky is open). It means why get pissed off at a post like this, and respond with varying degrees of outrage and sarcasm? Life is so much fuller than this, and not worth wasting on anger on Someone Who Is Wrong On The Internet.

    Last week I interviewed a German expatriate (who is looking forward to playing Diablo III). We talked about fishing in the canals, and how more and more he is catching foreign invasive species, which would be highly unusual back in Europe where the fish you caught in the drains would be the exact same fish your grandfather caught back in his day.

    Don't they teach you kids about classic cinema anymore?

    It's extra sad because if you didn't see Conan The Barbarian, you don't know what to say if someone asks you what's best in Life!

    BTW, anyone know how online Pre-orders will work? Will GameStop overnight my game to me on Friday the 11th so it arrives Saturday the 12th, and I can then input the gamekey and log in when the servers go live, or will they overnight it on Monday the 14th so it arrives sometime on Tuesday afternoon the 15th? Or will they not even send them out until the 15th and it won't arrive until the 16th?

    To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women!

    Ahhh, love it. I still listen to that soundtrack pretty regularly. One of the best scores ever in my mind!

    You deserve more credit than this thread gives you. I intentionally quoted the whole piece so that perhaps more people will read it and become wiser. Nice one.

    Dude, that's actually an advantage. You get to PREINSTALL, and play the SECOND servers go live. That's 20 minutes ahead of West Coast people. I wish I lived in the East now...

    I really wish the downvote button would return AND also would get implemented in the forums...

    Commenting any more on this topic is a waste of time
