It’s been a fair while since I’ve bought a video game on launch. I’m just not as fanatical as I used to be about that. I do still buy the occasional game though.
I have, in fact, bought every single game that Blizzard has released in the 10 years or so. This meant that I kind of just assumed that I’d buy Diablo 3 pretty much as soon as it came out.
I’ve been busy though, I have a German exam next Friday and I’m finishing off an iOS game based on The Dambusters, so next weekend would be the earliest I’d think of playing it.
I had got to the point where I thought I might even hold off longer, I am trying to focus on my research after all.
Then I got an email from a friend who just bought it, and Penny Arcade put the nail in the coffin, so to speak with their comic from yesterday.
Now it’s actually holding out.
