I am going to pack a few things into this post. I couldn't go too long without talking about Diablo III!

"Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that as of the first 24 hours of Diablo® III’s release, more than 3.5 million copies had been sold, setting the new all-time record for fastest-selling PC game. That number does not include the more than 1.2 million players who received Diablo III as part of signing up for the World of Warcraft® Annual Pass promotion. Altogether, more than 4.7 million gamers around the world were poised to storm Sanctuary on day 1 of Diablo III’s release -- representing the biggest PC-game launch in history."

Wow. Thats pretty impressive. I guess all the PC haters that said it was a dead platform are all wrong as 4.7 million purchases is huge for any system. Thats just the first week as well, Blizzard games often sell way beyond their release date. I wonder when stores will stop selling the Starcraft battle chest? When it stops selling I imagine.

Oh and I beat Diablo III last night. Woooohooo and all that. It was a fun moment. Act IV was the best paced act in the game and it was a fun way to end it off. I didn't really think the ending story part of cinematic really left me with a epic sense of closure but it was better than the Borderlands ending for sure. I am going to save my "Diablo III" review for a later post, but I felt it worth noting that I beat the game. It took me about 29 hours to complete as the Witch Doctor class.

Have you beat D3 yet? How did you feel the ending was if you did? Try to keep the comments spoiler free if you can. You on to nightmare now or are you giving yourself a bit of a break?
