More In the Way of Good News

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  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.


  1. That's the thing about beta.... they want all kinds of system specs. Old, new, fast, slow. they have to know the market and maximize efficiency to increase profitability.

    And if I remember yer hardware, you should be fine.

  2. I've upgraded a few things since you last looked at my system, so I'll just continue to cross those fingers. And maybe the toes as well, but that'll make me walk funny.
