Unofficial Diablo 3 Countdown

Diablo3.com and related site Blizzplanet are offering mysterious countdown timers that currently stand at 13 days and counting. It is important to note that neither site is owned or operated by Blizzard, but of course they do have some contacts there, so it seems reasonable to trust that this is somewhat significant. They're keeping things close to the vest for now, as the countdown is accompanied by this blurb: "The number of days until half the web links to Diablo3.com. But why???" Presumably we'll know the answer on May 1.

Higher resolution 2D graphics also means you can see a lot more than players at lower resolutions. I remember hacking the cfg file for RA2 and playing at 1600x1200.

Yea, that's what I meant but worded poorly. By seeing further, you could click further, and thus teleport a LOT faster and safely out of danger, since teleport didn't have a range.

I recently replayed through Red Alert & Yuri's Revenge at 1680x1050. It was quite badass at that resolution, and worked perfectly. I still prefer the pixel art of any early C&C game over the style of Generals and beyond.
