    I'm going to bed.

    If it is D3, change the title to something containing "Cocks, breakfast of champions" for all the cock eating that will be happening in the morning.

    Fuck, I have to go see a doctor today/tomorrow. I wonder is witnessing Diablo 3's announcement is worth potentially losing a leg?

    What is this, Blizzard-induced gangrene?

    Until they come out with World of Legcraft, I'd advise doctor visits.

    How about this: I wont get this hideous thing on my leg looked at until Blizzard announces Diablo 3.

    Do you hear that, Blizzard? MY LEG IS IN YOUR HANDS.

    THE GAME IS ON, BLIZZARD!

    How fitting, should you end up with a peg leg...

    If this is the case, then when I die I'll have it written in my will that 8 of my surviving friends and relatives must gather my leg and a Tome of Town Portal, then put them in a box and transmute them. They must then grind cows (being careful not to kill the Cow King) until at least level 70.

    The rest of my body will go to medical science.

    So, is anyone else, alternating between this and Blizzard.com, just refreshing back and forth, hoping for an update from one, and heaving a heavy sigh when it's not from the latter? Just wondering where I stand, currently, on the geek-scale here.

    Yes. YES.

    Now if they could somehow incorporate Batman as a playable character in Diablo 3...

    i'm sure it has been pointed out a million times, but it's clearly Diablo 3/some form of Diablo game

    Notebook.jpg

    obligatory repost of pic

    there's no way it can be anything else. i don't think even blizzard would go so far to print up a blatant image of the diablo series on a notebook.

    i guess it could just be considered standard swag, but that's a swank lookin' notebook

    I think we're all pretty sure it's Diablo 3 at this point, but has anyone else pointed out on the splash that you can clearly see the tip of what appears to be the signature goat-esque diablo horn on the right? I am so excited

    Say that again to yourself. Out loud.

    "I can't believe a company would put an image of one of their series iconoclastic villains on a notebook"

    Its a god damn notebook. Its also not like the only swag they got.

    Hell, I got an intel pad of paper at the GDC. I was so disappointed when they didn't end up announcing new intel processors there.

    Yeah those are apparently obligatory at any Blizzard function. Shit, people were in the sumo suits butting stomachs during every damn event at Blizzcon. Talk about new class? Sumo suits. Talk about Warcraft movie? Sumo suits. Hell during one panel some ridiculous shit was going down and they had to pause a minute (mentioned it to the crowd) while it got resolved. Can't remember exactly what it was but I assure you it was hilarious.

    Sigh, all my stories are awful. Curse my terrible memory.
