It has been 40 comments now, no one has mentioned "Logitech Keyboard Support". Am I the only one that went "wtf" with that one?
They are referring to the keyboards with the little LCD screens for showing game info like heath and ammo.

Ah! Thanks for the clarification.

It has been 40 comments now, no one has mentioned "Logitech Keyboard Support". Am I the only one that went "wtf" with that one? I didn't play the first one for more then a few hours admittedly, am I missing something here?
Edit: fwiw, I was using a Logitech keyboard during those few hours without problem.
Edit#2: Hell, I've been using Logitech Peripherals since the 90's. Is support of these devices the newest and greatest thing in the 10's that I'm not aware of? I've had a good laugh tonight.

Amazon updated their listings with the date, and I just switched my CE order over to free release date shipping since I have Prime.

I don't see anything on my order offering "release day shipping" yet...did you change yours to one day and there was no charge, or did it specifically list "release day shipping"?

Thanks!

Keep an eye on this post: Amazon Preorder Woes

As I am in Canada, and amazon.ca isn't selling the CE (yet), I can't get release date shipping anyway I, however, will not be caught dead buying from EB/Gamestop, where they remove the plastic and fiddle with god knows what inside the game.

Closed realm hacking was and still is rampant. No, I don't know exactly how they do it but it most certainly helps that all the game assets are client side. Hell, you can still find a few people with "White Rings" in current ladder. I also find it amazing how goldfarm sites like d2legit and the others have "perfect" versions of every single item/unique/runeword mere hours into a new ladder season. Mere hours, hundreds if not thousands of perfects which are statistically improbable to ever find even one. In order for Diablo 3, in its current state, to have single player/complete offline mode they would have to redesign the entire game to save assets such as item generation/storage/monster generation client side. Giving hackers direct access to those assets opens up pandora's box for a repeat of Diablo 2 closed realms.

I am not saying there won't be cheats and dupes, but Blizzard has designed the game in such a way that they can see exactly what's happening where/when/how like they can in World of Warcraft. Hacks/cheats may possibly happen but they'll be almost immediately dealt with (as they have been in WoW), offenders banned and items deleted. With their dependence on a stable economy for the RMAH, you know Blizzard won't just sit there and let hacks run rampant. No, I don't think online only will prevent hacks, but I know Blizzard won't, as they did in Diablo 2, sit on their asses and do nothing about it. So, Blizzard has direct control of the entire game as it's online only now. A lot of people don't like that, and feel Blizzard has a noose around all our necks. I don't, I believe this will make my own gaming experience a lot better and as someone how does plan on selling items on the RMAH, a lot more secure. So, yes, it does seem RMAH is a major reason why this "DRM" is put in place and it is unfortunate it negatively effects players that have no intention of using the RMAH.

To a remark someone said earlier about "what will your defense be when people are selling hacked/duped SOJ's one week into release". Well, that would be a pretty blatant demonstration on how god damn stupid some people are, because anyone knowingly selling hacked/duped items on the RMAH would almost immediately have their CDKey/Battletag and all that stuff perma banned. Good waste of $60+ dollars for those idiots. I'll probably laugh.

The latest rumour is that it is BG2 for ipad btw.

I almost fried my Android tablet trying to shoehorn Planescape Torment onto it with an emulator. Had to reset it to factory defaults. True story. I'm such a nerd.

I like this. That game deserves no less than this effort.

I doubt it is a new game, and as already suggested it is likely a port rather than a remake.

I hope I end up eating my words. One of the best series of games ever made.

Definitely CS. It makes sense to me, and sort of doesn't.
Much of their CS processes have improved significantly over the years, faster and more efficient. Much of it is probably far more automated now. With declining WoW numbers as well as the previously mentioned improvements in CS processes, you may have more people than tasks for them to do. However, with Diablo 3 due sometime soon, won't you need some of that manpower back? The RMAH alone adds a whole new monster to the CS department I would imagine.

Also, Chaos! Pandemonium 2012! etc.

Yeah I got my first run it last night before the rest of the 100k started playing I guess. 1000+ms, it is currently unplayable and I love how the menus stop responding so your only option is to Alt-F4

I know it says it's compatible with Win7 64bit, but is it really? The last time I loaded it up from the CD, it was a broken crashing mess that wouldn't even start half the time.

I picked up TQ Gold the last time they had the same 75% sale for $5.
I never played it before and I've since moved on but according to Steam I spent over 100 hours playing it.

Buy it.

Creston

I am sure they've done this with every single one of their games, it's just something Blizzard does and I want to believe it's usually for the best...

I was reading the Diablo 2 announcement article in a 1998 issue of PCGamer a few weeks ago for nostalgia sake. They interview Roper about D2. Roper talks about a great number of features that they promised (and continued too for over a year+) would launch with Diablo 2, but ended up getting cut. Most predominately is, of course, Guild Houses, but there were a great many more features that were cut while nothing new, after the games announcement, was put into the game.
