Here we are on the eve of the Diablo 3 launch. I am not sure I have anticipated a launch quite as eagerly as this one. I kept hitting the refresh on my Amazon package track and was really excited it moved 30 miles. Yeah, its like that for me.

If all goes well I may head to 12p line at a Best Buy with a friend that wants to pick it up tonight. Ill take pictures and all that, hopefully there is a nerd rush and someone mistakes the event for a Pretty Petz 2 launch. "Wait, you mean this isn't Catz 4 Back in Mittens launch line? OH MAN!" Or maybe thats what I will say.... Hmmmm.

Anyways, as always here is a few Diablo 3 news bits for your consumption. Don't joy puke early, you need to save your strength for the midnight drop.

According to Amazon Diablo 3 is the most pre-ordered game ever. Makes sense to me.

"A representative for Amazon told Joystiq that Diablo 3 is Amazon's most pre-ordered PC title ever. "Today, it became the most pre-ordered PC game of all-time on – even exceeding pre-orders for Blizzard's own StarCraft II and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm," the rep said."

And like the aforementioned article says, with gamer desktops like this it makes sense:

Looks like Oskar Pannier, the guy that did a few Diablo 3 comics he posted to Facebook got a new website located at One such comic is shown above. Cool to see he will start doing it regularly and he has a proper website for it now.

Blizzard keeps talking about the console port of Diablo 3. Its so complicated and what they say makes so little sense to me I won't bother summing it up. You can decode it yourself here:

What are you doing for the D3 launch?

I apparently have a corrupted MPQ... again... It seems to be a common problem though.

Doh! Totally totally sucks.

I have an operating theory on how to get it to work...

I delete the corrupted file and it tries to re-download it. It inevitably tells me that it is corrupted again, but it gets further in the download. Maybe when it finishes the download...

We'll see. I'm also operating anti-virus free (don't worry, it'll be back on before anyone reads this) and I deleted a my folder.

Heres for hoping.

FIXED IT!!! Still can't slay any demons tonight or tomorrow, but here's hoping this weekend is filled with the blood of my enemies.
