This will definitely be my first character on May 15.
Took 3 days of work and will play it for 3 days straight, 24hour marathon.

That is one factor to note but I think Blizzard is more than prepared with their servers and hardware to handle most of the load on release day. As they've said, they had over 2 million Beta testers and I don't know if that included the millions more that played during the 3 day Open Beta weekend testing period.Quote from BigEd781What I'm afraid of is release day issues. If the servers are having problems on Tuesday I will just cry as I took that day off work...
Although I do remember that during the Open Beta, they slowly and casually let in a sizable number of players at time intervals to see if the servers can handle the load of players logging in. Also during that Open Beta weekend, Blizzard had to do a lot of system maintenance at times for long periods of time, and I don't think they wasted all those hours for nothing... so, bottom line is, I think Blizzard is as prepared as they can be for release day.
Some people are luckier than though, since I bought the CE and the Fry's store wont open until 8am, I wont be able to play until around before 9am when I get back home. Still, those people would only be ahead of me in game play by 9hours which I surely would regain with my continuous play for 2 days.
Yes, that's right. I took 3 days of work starting Tuesday so that I could accomplish a lot playing only Diablo III until Thursday evening for I have to get back to work on Friday morning. I'm all pumped up and excited to finally play my 3 day marathon.

That's why I'll be saving up for a new one, which already has the most updated parts that you wouldn't need to upgrade for a very long time. Hell, I think at 15 Hundred dollars, this new piece of equipment can kick butt and trash most of the upgraded desktop computers of a lot of people out there. The MSI GT60 0NC is equipped with the Ivy Bridge quad-core processor, Full anti-reflective 1080p HD, 12GB RAM, 1.0TB Hard Drive memory space and one of the best graphics card, the NVidia GeForce GTX670M with 3GB of dedicated graphics memory.Quote from Gekkelokolaptops aren't really upgradeable and run out of batteries
For the battery issue most people are claiming, just like desktop computers which you use plugged in all the time to a wall socket outlet, I don't ever use my laptop with the batter in it. I always use it plugged into the wall outlet because I know I would be using it for hours straight. The battery of my laptop is still in the bubble wrap it came in with. I have never used it even once for the 2 years now that I've had my laptop. People who use their laptops with the battery in and always has the adapter plugged in the outlet is basically always overcharging the battery of their laptops and shortening the battery life.
Just think of it this way, when you use your cell phones or i-Pads or i-Phones or game boys plugged in the wall outlet all the time? No, right. You only have it plugged in whenever you are charging, and after it has charged you unplug it already.
So, why would a laptop be any different??? You should only plug in your laptop whenever you are charging the battery, otherwise, unplug it already. Whenever you overcharge these electronic device, what you are actually doing is just shortening the device's battery life. So my advice, if you plan on using your laptop for hours on straight, just take out the battery from the bottom of your laptop and just use it plugged in the wall outlet the whole time.

Seriously??? This might be the dumbest thing yet... you need to sharpen up a little there kiddo.Quote from reyes01I asked a GM in WoW today how many cheat codes will be avaible for Diablo 3, and to my shock he said "none"....
So I ask why not? Cheat codes is a fun feature to a game, like when you are bored.
All big games have it, like Age of Empires. Blizzard should listen to their fans, the game will be better this way!

Just 4 more days left before the long awaited release of the 3rd sequel to the Diablo gaming franchise.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Question is, are you ready? Have you recently rigged up a new set of gears and accessories to be able to face Diablo's demonic hoards from the burning hell, or are you just using the same old piece of metal you have set-up. It may not matter which one you have but if you wanted a gratifying first time experience and fluid gameplay, I would suggest you make sure that your computer has a decent graphics card especially for people using laptops. You may think you have a high end laptop because you base it on the manufacturer (Apple, Toshiba, Dell, Sony... etc.) and you bought if for a lot of money, but hey if your laptop computer only came with an integrated graphics card, you are deceiving yourself. You can only expect your laptop to perform well and have decent graphics if it came with a dedicated graphics card.
The first thing a person buying a laptop should ever consider when buying a laptop is "does it have a dedicated graphics card" so that I could use it for gaming and graphics software (like CAD).
As for me, I like mobility so I prefer using my laptop. I never got to set up a desktop computer because I don't have a lot of extra space in my room, plus I'm always out of the house. With my laptop, I just need a decent WiFi connection and I'm good to go. I always play during my breaks, it may be for an hour or two. I can play at a local Starbucks, at Mc Donalds, at a corner in the Library, in hotel lobbies, at the airport, and even on the road using a WWAN verizon connection while my wife is driving.
I'm using a MSI GT683R laptop computer with all it's fancy lights. It's a fairly good gaming laptop, but just this April, NVidia just released their newest and fastest video card to date, the GTX 690. Although they still don't have a M version for laptops out, they do have a M version for the 3rd to their newest card, the NVidia GTX 670M which is installed on the newly released MSI GT60 0NC (15.6" laptop) and the MSI GT70 0NC (17" laptop).
I'm not a tall guy so a 15.6" laptop is just the right size for me. I don't want my back to suffer lugging around a 17" or 18" laptop. It also makes me happy that for the very first time, MSI put out a 15.6" laptop that has a full-color programmable backlit keyboard by SteelSeries. With their previous laptops, the SteelSeries gaming keyboard only comes on their 17" laptops.
To give you guys an idea of what power the new MSI GT60 has, here are the specs of the laptop (This would almost be the same with the GT70 except for a bigger screen and more Hard Drive space using Solid State Drives):
• Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM Processor (3rd Generation; the newest)
• Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit
• 15.6" Full HD Anti-reflective Display (16:9; 1920 x 1080)
• NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX670M discrete graphics (GDDR5 3GB VRAM)
• Full-color programmable backlit keyboard by SteelSeries
• Killer Game Networking
• 1.0TB (7200RPM; 500GB x 2 in RAID 0)
• 12GB DDR3 1600MHz system memory
• USB 3.0 for high speed data transfer
• HDMI 1.4 (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) output
• Built-in 720p HD webcam
• Gold flashed audio jack ports with amplifier
• 802.11 b/g/ n Wireless LAN with Bluetooth
Some people might argue that a desktop computer is best for playing games, but I would argue back that with the MSI Cooler Boost Technology, MSI's gaming laptops are the better choice. Armed with my Logitech G330 gaming headset and my Logitech MX Revolution rechargeable cordless gaming mouse, I can play Diablo III anytime I have free time anywhere I may be. I just need to look for a place with free WiFi connection. And when I'm home, I just hook-up the HDMI cable, then I get to play either on a 27" monitor or my 46" LCD TV.
Oh, tips for those who aren't aware... just like desktop computers which you use plugged in all the time to a wall socket outlet, I don't ever use my laptop with the batter in it. I always use it plugged into the wall outlet because I know I would be using it for hours straight. The battery of my laptop is still in the bubble wrap it came in with. I have never used it even once for the 2 years now that I've had my laptop. People who use their laptops with the battery in and always has the adapter plugged in the outlet is basically always overcharging the battery of their laptops and shortening the battery life.
Just think of it this way, when you use your cell phones or i-Pads or i-Phones or game boys plugged in the wall outlet all the time? No, right. You only have it plugged in whenever you are charging, and after it has charged you unplug it already. So, why would a laptop be any different??? You should only plug in your laptop whenever you are charging the battery, otherwise, unplug it already. Whenever you overcharge these electronic device, what you are actually doing is just shortening the device's battery life. So my advice, if you plan on using your laptop for hours on straight, just take out the battery from the bottom of your laptop and just use it plugged in the wall outlet the whole time.
Although I have no plans yet of replacing my current laptop, I would be on the lookout for when MSI puts out a 15.6" gaming laptop with the newest NVidia GTX 690M installed in it. So now, I'm preparing for when that time comes by setting to save up to $2,000 in the next six months time.
Hopefully, they'll have that new 15.6" laptop with the SteelSeries gaming keyboard and the NVidia GTX 690M installed in it out by Thanksgiving, and by then I would be able to get one.
So, what's it for you? Are you ready and geared up for Diablo III?

LAN Party??? Are you seriously not up to date or are you just trolling?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Diablo III is on-line only game. So even if your friends are at their place as long as you guys have created and shared your BattleTag IDs, you would be able to find and play with each other in game on release and the days there after.
Wake up foo... dream all you want but Diablo III is not a LANable game. Bottom line is, YOU ALL HAVE TO BE ON-LINE.
