Put Down D3 and Pick Up Girls

A guy named JT Tran who has built a career as a male dating coach, is planning to attend the Diablo III launch in Irvine to try to convince men not to buy D3 and instead to spend their time/money chasing women. Note that the following is a quote from one of those “submit your own press release” spam sites, which means the guy wrote it himself. It’s still amusing enough to quote from, and thanks to Carlyle for the tip:

Pre-Download Diablo III

With the release date coming up soon, fans are trying to get things done in advance, per Blizzard’s recommendations. If you’ve purchased the Diablo III digital download you get a link from your Battle.net account, but if you haven’t bought that yet, or you’re waiting for a box copy, you’ll want to go ahead and download the game files to save time come launch night. We first posted all these links back in March, but as many people as I’ve seen asking about them today, a repost is in order.

The Spoilers are Coming! The Spoilers are Coming!

Bashiok made a blue post tell us to remember remember the 14th of… May. Since that day the full game client will become available (just not to play until the servers go up) and massive datamining will commence. (On our DiabloNut, for instance.) Also, D3CE buyers will want to avoid the Artbook and Behind The Scenes DVD until they’ve completed their first play-through. Thanks to Edward for the news tip, and here’s the quote:

The three topics are regarding enrage timers for bosses, potential CE copies at the midnight launch in Irvine, and gear-checks in groups for Inferno.

D3 Boxes Sighted in the Wild

A reader named Keith sent us a link to an image of an actual Diablo III box in a store. We’ve seen fake shots and heard rumors about this for the past oh… 6 or 8 years. But this looks like the real thing. And think, in just two weeks you can have one of your very own!

Diablo 3 Beta Ends Tomorrow Morning

For all of those who are wondering when the Diablo III beta is ending, a specific time has been announced for when the servers will be shut off for good until May 15th arrives. We will have until 3AM PDT to get our last fill of Diablo 3. If you haven’t killed King Leoric enough by now, this means you probably have enough time to do a fair amount of runs until time runs out.

Diablo III Commercial TV Spot

It’s available. And it’s epic. It’s just a shame that it isn’t longer. One thing I did notice, though, is that the Diablo reveal in this video looks much more polished and suitable than the one that was pulled from the 15th Anniversary site shown 4 months ago. Enjoy the short clip – nearly 2 weeks to go.
