Fuck me sideways, maybe now Amazon will stop sending me apology e-mails for my D3:CE pre-order being unavailable.

@Wunder_:i am already at unstable hype levels

Welp ... wish I was more excited for this. Still buying it. :|

I have not played any of the previous Diablo games, but I'm pumped for this one. Hopefully I'll be able to wrap this up before the PC release of Max Payne 3.

You missed out, Diablo 2 was one of the best games of our time.

Oh man - I'm thinking about buying the CE... Convince me its a stupid idea!

#12 Posted by PenguinDust (12793 posts) -

Max Payne 3 drops that day, too. Blizzard vs Rockstar, should be interesting.

#13 Posted by ansys (92 posts) -

Yes, yes, yes!!!

At least they're in no way similar products. Depending on what I see of Max Payne 3, I might be getting both.

#15 Posted by Drakoji (242 posts) -

The real question is when Torchlight 2 and Guild Wars 2 release dates will be announced?

#16 Posted by JustKamToo (829 posts) -

OH damn another CE incoming!!!!

#17 Posted by AndrewB (7782 posts) -

Hooray! Now I finally know when my card will be charged.

Hey, this is the first Diablo game I'll personally own.

True. But, most people will only buy one of them on or around that date, so I'm just wondering which will come out on top and by how much. Max Payne has been moved in the past, so Rockstar might delay the release again for a better window. What publisher would want to release a "AAA" title against Diablo III?

I think Torchlight is in some trouble now, it really needed to come out before Diablo. I'm sure it'll still do fine, but there's going to be a lot less excitement for it now.

GW2 is an entirely different beast, though it'll probably come out around the same time (June/July?). Pre-purchases start next month and I'm pretty sure they'll announce the date before then.

Yes, finally a release date!

Not really, I'll just buy both

Anyways, gonna start setting up my tent in front of my computer

Bye bye every other game I play on Mac.

#23 Posted by James_Giant_Peach (756 posts) -

Wish I gave a damn. The idea of mindless, incessant clicking has never appealed to me. Good news for all the fans though!

#24 Posted by Drakoji (242 posts) -

@WinterSnowblind:

Well, Torchlight have some really good features, like modding and LAN multiplayer.

And it wont be 59,99$... Seriously, 59,99$ for a top-down dungeon crawler with almost do depth is ridiculous.

#25 Posted by GeneralZod37 (295 posts) -

Next thing we know Valve is going to release Half-Life 3 on 5.12.12 as well. A AAA game threeway.

Seriously though, WOONANNY!!!!!!

The day after my birthday- too bad I can't ask for it as a present, ha

#27 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

Well, that's a thing.

Max Payne III vs Diablo III? That's a hell of a week. That's November quality kind of week.

#29 Posted by Storphrax (187 posts) -

Awesome. I'm getting the game for free too through the 1 year WoW subscription.

Soul stone USB drive ...that's all I needed to know :)

luckily, there was a pre-order deal last year for €60 ... now all I need to do is wait for the postman!

Oh man oh man oh man!

#32 Posted by Crono (2762 posts) -

I am elated to know a date - 2 months is usually pretty short - but with this news in the back of my mind at all times I know that time is gonna drag even more slowly. Hooray! We finally got a release date!

I like how you imply that Diablo is worth less because of it's genre, what a moronic post. With almost no depth? Urgh, even Diablo 2 had more gameplay AND story depth than most RPGs nowadays, fuck off with ridiculous statements like that.

#34 Posted by Death_Burnout (3837 posts) -

If you have been following this game closely, this is perhaps the most amazing and surreal thing ever to actually see with your damn eyes...it's that crazy!

#35 Posted by Addfwyn (1982 posts) -

Pretty excited, the beta whet my appetite significantly, but you can only play 13 or so levels so many times.

#36 Posted by duggshammer (161 posts) -

Just prepurchased on battle.net, I'll be taking some vacation time on the day it comes out... this is gonna be awwweesooome

#37 Posted by Drakoji (242 posts) -

@NaDannMaGoGo: Says the man with the D3 avatar, you surely neutral in all that I'm I right?

Seriously, Diablo 3 is overpriced, there's way better games in that genre that are waaaay cheaper and better than Diablo 3. And come on, story depth? Really? REALLY? You know the game where people skipped 4/5 of the act 2 content only to get the cube and kill the boss... Yeah story depth.

Torchlight 2 and Titan Quest if you want examples.

#38 Posted by ucankurbaga (180 posts) -

put this on main page

#39 Posted by GeneralZod37 (295 posts) -

@Drakoji: We have no idea the depth of content in the game so we cannot say for sure if it is worth the price or not.

He could have a picture of Pikachu as his avatar and you'd still be an idiot.

@GeneralZod37:

Well, we saw the Beta, and we know that it's a game plagued with console-aids. The game has been casualized as fuck.

#42 Posted by TzarStefan (429 posts) -

Allrdy bored with the beta i hope this ignites the thrill again

#43 Posted by Village_Guy (2769 posts) -

Uh, that is on my birthday :D

#44 Posted by Red (6146 posts) -

Wow. I didn't think it'd be so soon. Considering the dearth of other May releases I'm interested in, the promise of perhaps a more BioWarian structure with companions, and co-op, I guess I'll have to pick this up.

#45 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

Still excited. All the haters can't bring me down.

#46 Posted by GeneralZod37 (295 posts) -

@Drakoji: Fair enough. It could just be shady dealings by the publisher, supply and demand for ya.

#47 Posted by Kratch (386 posts) -

I'm very pumped for Diablo III, but I'm also wondering what the hell is going on with Torchlight II.

So I've heard. I actually watched a friend of mine play hours upon hours of Diablo II when I was a kid. Sadly he didn't let me play at all :(

I woke up, and Blizzard announced a release date for Diablo III.

You're all welcome.

Now I'm positive that the Mayans were off, and the end of the world will occur on May 15th...because God can never let Diablo III come out.

...and when the world ends...and I see God, I'm punching that fucker square in the nuts for doing such a terrible thing to us.

I just wish there was some way I could get the digital version with that. It looks so fucking awesome but I don't want the disc. :-/
