  1. Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Diablo III will not ship until early 2012, narrowly missing the lucrative holiday season and forcing anxious fans of the franchise to wait even longer…

    It's kind of funny when someone fails to recognize a meme and tries to diss someone over it, thinking that they genuinely were illiterate or whatever the meme may have implied about the person posting.

    Anyways, I'm still checking my inbox for that message from Blizzard with a key. I missed the SC2 beta so I'm hoping I'll get in this one. Hopefully they will ensure that people who missed SC2 beta will be more likely to get in this one. :D

    Good for them. Wait till the game is done, the fans will understand and appreciate it.

    I sincerely wish more companies would wait until a game is done, rather than stick to some artificial release schedule, which always results in a bug ridden release.

    every blizzard title has been released full of bugs, diablo 2 would unexpectedly go down for days in its first year. sc2 had no game chat, wow had no pvp bonuses among countless empty buildings showing a 75% made game. Go ahead and release diablo 3 early with bugs and patch them out as you go along. For those who want a perfect game pretend it has not come out and then buy it when you think its up to your personal par.

    How long its taken blizzard to make a sequel for diablo 2 will always be a black mark on there record. It was game of the year why did they wait a decade to make a sequel. Sure the diablo 2 team is no longer with them but thats there own fault.
  8. I would say this why it took them so long.

    Oh boy, I can't wait to play a singleplayer game with all the downsides of a multiplayer game.

    I was really excited about it until they made it so you have to be online to play...by yourself.

    I agree they should use there old system where you can play offline but your offline character cant play closed battlenet, companies cant seem to stop pirates from getting single player so whats the point?
