    posted a message on Diablo Gaming Peripherals Now Available!
    I got a review copy of the Diablo III Headset. I wish I had paid for them. It's the best headphone I have ever had in 12 years of gaming.

    They have a on/off mic switch. You can lower or increase the volume with a tuner button. The mic can be pulled out or pushed back into the housing of the left-earphone.

    It comes with an extension cord. To give you an idea, I can walk around the room with the headphones still on. The extension cord + the headphone cable together are about 8 feet long. The headset cable is the same material of the Diablo III mouse: a bridled cord. Very resistant. Looks like it is going to last very long.

    It has a dj band around the top of your skull pushing it downwards which keeps the headphone still on your head. A warning though. The earphones are noise cancelling. If someone is talking to you while you are fragging you will have a hard time understanding what people near you are saying. Prepare for mom or wife aggro lol.

    Why is the D3-CE not available for pre-order on amazon?
    They do offer a pre-order on a "normal" D3 copy.

    Diablo CE was available for several months. Sorry you missed the train =/

    posted a message on Blizzard signing Diablo III: Book of Cain @ Book Soup, LA on Jan 7
    I received two important updates and edited the original post:

    - The event starts at 2:00 PM (instead of 3:00). Come early for a brief panel discussing the book content.
    - You must purchase Diablo III: Book of Cain onsite at Book Soup in order to join the line for the book signing. The receipt functions as an admission ticket.

    posted a message on 12 Days of Diablo III: Book of Cain
    Insight Editions will release interior artwork pages of Diablo III: Book of Cain over the next couple of weeks in their new #12daysofbookofcain via twitter.

    Day 1:

    “My dear Leah.

    In the Inevitable event of my death, may I precede you by many decades to the grave.
    Do not mourn me, Leah. Despite all I have been through, I have had a long and amazing life. I have died doing exactly what I was meant to do. I have lived and loved freely these long years — and have known only joy at seeing the bright, beautiful woman you’ve become. I believe that I now go on to a place beyond imagining. Though, I have no name for it, nor real understanding of where it lies, save beyond the broken bounds of this world.

    I long for this paradise, Leah — and the peace and rest I might find there on the other side of this mortal existence. I want you to know this, dear one, above all other things I could have taught you that there is hope beyond this reality. Beyond the realms of Heaven and Hell and all the shadowed spaces that lie between. Hold fast to that hope in the face of the dark times ahead, and you will find the truest meaning of your life.
    Though I know that you do not believe me when I speak of dread omens. I think you are beginning to respect that my words ring of truth. I was a non-believer as well. I remember, even as a child, reading the Horadric tales and thinking that while they were wonderful stories, they were only that — wonderful stories. Tales such as those of Anu and the Dragon, the Mage Clan Wars, the Sin War, and the Hunt for the Three merely were told to embrace imagination. I now see, much to my regret that even within these legends there lives a deeper and more profound truth. For, as I have come to discover, truth is hidden in unexpected places.

    If events are as I believe them to be, some truths will be revealed very shortly which will make you a believer — perhaps even upon the day of my death. For I believe that if our world is to be saved, you have a pivotal role to play in the salvation, though I know not — nor do I begin to speculate — what that role might be.”

    Oh man if only I lived anywhere remotely close. I'd love to get mine signed.
    I wish they had one in New York to take video/photos.

    This signing event has potential to be one of the most crowdy. Flint Dille and Chris Metzen are also co-authors of the upcoming 2012 Online Comic Transformers: Autocracy. So I'll bet Transfomers fans would love the chance to bring their merchandise too, and to meet them.

    Congrats ghostload and thankyou medievaldragon for the opportunity.

    No problem. I still have about six more to giveaway, but not here.

    I'm not sure who to contact at Diablofans now that Sixen departed. Maybe Diablofans can hook up with IE to giveaway some Book of Cain.

    posted a message on Book of Cain delayed to January 10th? [Confirmed still dec 13th]
    Update: The original rumor (January 10th) was debunked by Insight Editions publicity manager on Sunday, Dec 11th after I contacted her.

    As of that Sunday, all was on track for release on December 13th. Out of the blue, and unrelated to the original rumor, there was a delay in shipment. Insight Edition reports via twitter the book will be sent out on Dec 16, or before Dec 19th tops.

    Ordering for Christmas? This item has a future release date and will arrive after December 25.

    Publisher: Insight Editions (January 10, 2012)

    Source: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1608870634/?tag=exampleid-20

    I had already seen the Amazon January 10 page. This is why I directly contacted the Insight Editions Publicity Manager on Sunday, Dec 11. She said Book of Cain is shipping Dec 13. Amazon is mistakenly displaying now Jan 10, and they will fix that eventually. She contacted Amazon to fix this.

    Thank you MD. :)

    I was going to close it but maybe it's a good idea to leave it open for others to see your post.

    Thanks, Umpa. I no longer work at Diablofans, but have fond memories of this community and moderators.

    I don't like to go by rumors, or see people react negatively against Blizzard or the licensed publishers based on inaccurate info. I have a few contacts, and they are very down-to-earth folks.

    I can't believe Carlie takes time to answer on a weekend, to address fan concerns. She's awesome.

    Good I found this forum thread in time. Nowhere in the Chris Metzen interview at Gameplanet he says the Book of Cain has been delayed until January. Thus, this is mere rumor based on what Amazon listed.

    About a month ago, there was another rumor about a delay, and I quickly contacted Insight Editions to debunk that. As then, I contacted today Sunday, Dec 11 the Insight Editions Publicity Manager.

    She responded on a Sunday within half-hour.

    The Amazon release date is inaccurate. Diablo III: Book of Cain will ship on December 13th. Amazon will fix this internally.

    any exact news for release date?

    Don't think so, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a release date announcement after the opening cinematic at Spike TV December 10th.

    The release of the opening cinematic is a very big event for Blizzard. That's totally a press magnet, and definitely a good timing to announce the release date.

    If that doesn't happen during SpikeTV Awards, the next good timing would be December 31. That's the 15th anniversary of the original Diablo launch date in USA.
