Gather round children, for I will tell thee a story of Angels and Demons of old. Past battles fought between good and ill that shaped the very fabric of our universe! Well, that or you could hit play on the video above this post.

"Long before the creation of Sanctuary, the Eternal Conflict between angels and demons raged on for untold millennia. Blizzard Entertainment teamed up with renowned director Peter Chung and acclaimed animation studio Titmouse to create this unique vision of a fundamental moment in the battle between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells."

A bit of other interesting Diablo 3 tid-bitery comes from a recent Joystiq article about just how many people joined the Diablo 3 open beta weekend from a recent Activision/Blizzard investor earnings call where Michael Morhaime revealed:

"We recently conducted an open beta stress test for Diablo 3, where anyone could download and try out the game. The response we got was huge, with more than two million people worldwide participating in the open beta." A lot of the testing, Morhaime said on the call, was beneficial to Diablo 3's development – particularly to the Auction House feature."

Awesome. Hopefully that means launch will be flawless.

In other news that makes me squee with delight like a 8 year old... Seems retailers around the United States are unboxing Diablo 3 for launch next Tuesday. A few rouge employees are even snapping a few pics of the un-crated boxes.

I want one of the autographed collectors editions so bad!

Yeah, I thought it was awesome too! Apparently Angels can be goaded.

Video was great. It was done by the same guys who do Metalocalypse. It would have been a step up though if they added a heavy metal soundtrack.

Haha yeah, especially when Imperius cleaves Diablo in half.

Honestly, I'm not really interested in Diablo III, so I'm not sure why I clicked on this video...

But CRAP!, that was cool.

Diablo 3 launch day: I have to work until 8pm and be back at work at 6:30am. Great timing.

Apparently even with one day shipping amazon says D3 will arrive the 17th... I may never pre-order from Amazon again.

Live learn I guess.
