    :) congrats on buying.Blizz will allow you to install it closer to release so you can start up when servers go live.

    I was so happy to be able to play this game with my friends from TPU, until I remembered that we are region separated.

    Yeah, I have used sites like it numerous times, saved me a good amount of money.

    You seem pretty optimistic on the time window you will need :laugh:

    At least MM's not as lost as a guy I work with, he's been playing PC games for a long time (at least I hoped). I asked him last night if he is picking up D3 his response was... "I don't like RTS's". I just stared at him for a good 10 seconds not even staying a word. Then before I could say anything he's like "yeah those games where you control 4 characters" :laugh: All I could figure is he mistaked the isometric view and assumed it was a RTS simply based on the view. So I had to explain it to him that it's not an RTS.

    as long as we can get him in a game, it will be a simple "MM go hack and slash until we tell you to stop"

    I just bought it guys! Dl'n now! :toast: I was holding off to buy it, because the baby is due august 10. I was moving stuff out of my old computer room.. now baby room.. :banghead: hehehe one of the boxes in the bottom of the closet I opened up and setting on top was an old "PC Accelerator" and the cover was Diablo II 1999! I showed the wife and she said, "Well you'll get to play the new one in a few days." I told her... Naw i'm going to hold off because of the baby... and she said, "What are you waiting for IT"S Diablo III!, go buy it. you have been waiting forever for that game." hehehe :rockout: Awesome wife is awesome! :toast:

    Install 100% compete :D, there is a 15mb patch to download at the end.

    took 11 mins to install it to a SSD with 16GB ram cache. CPU pegged to 100% a few times.



    EDIT:

    pressed play, watched opening video, SHIVERS RUN DOWN SPINE!

    after installing you can launch the game - though you can't log in obviously - you can watch the intro movie, as well as the act 1 & deckard cain movies for each class by going to cinematics from the main menu.
