So Blizzard, bless their money grubbing souls, have finally, Finally, FINALLY started phasing in players for the closed beta for Diablo 3.
I cannot begin to describe the joy that this gives me. And a little disappointment as well, since most likely my system is not near good enough for the developers' standards for running a beta...But I remain hopeful that they will do rolling phase-ins for the closed beta before they do an open beta. So if I miss the closed beta I'll be working extra hard to get in on the open beta.
I encourage you to go to the Diablo 3 website to look at/drool over the screen shots as well as the gameplay videos. I should add here that Diablo 3 will require an internet connection to play. From all the most recent information, D3 will work just like SC2 - meaning that you will need to log in to the game via battle.net. That being said, I have heard rumors that SC2 will soon allow a form of LAN play. If I can find any concrete information about that I'll be sure to post it.
In the meantime, here's a kitten.
