Diablo III Launch Events

Blizzard announces worldwide events surrounding the launch of Diablo III on May 15th, as there will be various celebrations of the release beginning the evening of the 14th. This page offers details on all the events, and here's word:

In the US, the official launch event will be hosted by Blizzard and retail partner GameStop at:

    The Great Wheel Court of the Irvine Spectrum Mall
    71 Fortune Drive
    Irvine, CA 92618

Festivities will start at 8:00 p.m. PDT on May 14. Gamers in attendance will enjoy an epic evening of entertainment before Diablo III goes on sale at midnight, including a variety of giveaways; an exciting selection of Diablo-related video footage; and multiple contests with exclusive Diablo III-themed prizes, such as laser-etched desktop PCs from Intel. In addition, members of the Diablo III development team will be on site at each of the official events to meet with players and sign their copies of the game.

For more information on the global launch events, visit http://www.blizzard.com/company/events/d3-opening/. In addition to the official US launch event, other retail locations around the country will open at midnight to support gamers looking to pick up their copy of the game the moment it goes live. Please check with your local retailers for further details.

Bad analogy because there's an Olympic committee who picks what city the Olympics will be going to, and if there's a two lane road going to the olympic grounds when there needs to be 8, the committee says "you only get to host the olympics if you do X, Y, and Z".

It's not unusual for a city to lose their asses getting ready for the Olympics.

To translate this into video games, the D3 launch would have to fizzle because everyone was pissed that Blizzard couldn't handle the load and thus went elsewhere to game.

Which is about as likely to happen as the sun rising in the west.
LMFAO! You didn't...

Um, OK yeah, you're right and it doesn't involve the Department of Transportation, asphalt, and Yellow Non-Lead Based Paint either... It was an analogy... I should have known not to use analogies here... because it starts with 'ANAL'.

AND …don't even get me started on the lead based paint... I like to see those lines when it is raining outside and who the hell is going to let their kid lick the paint on the road anyway! You can blame the damn eco-hippies for that one…

I miss the old days when people would actually talk about a game instead of just whining and complaining about everything that is not perfect in the world and how everyone else’s ideas are always better... and how OBVIOUSLY because Product X was designed by said company that makes money it must be evil and must be taught a lesson...
sheesh... what a waste.

Blizzard is awesome… they make games I enjoy; at prices I am willing to pay based on my income. They not only make money but bring in a profit so that they can make more games that I will like which makes me happy. If it didn’t, I live in a capitalism based society (for the time being anyways and thank God for that), if I end up not liking Blizzard, I have the CHOICE to start liking ‘Running With Scissors’ instead.

Wait... you're a dipshit who can't use a proper analogy and you're calling me anal?

Whatever dude...

And also... *what* old days? I've been gaming since fucking pong and people have *always* been critical of some aspect of games or another.

So just... stop.
