I pre-ordered the collectors edition last month. I got an email from Amazon a couple days ago giving me a delivery date of May 18th (3 days after release), which kind of bummed me out. Then I got a second email from Amazon, promising release day delivery. So, now I'll have D3 in my hands on the 15thevil_smiley.gif.

 

Sounds like a vacation day to me.

If the amount of time I spent playing Diablo II is any indicator of how addictive this game is going to be, then I'm honestly a little afraid to purchase it.

I'm with you on that one. This game could be the death of me. Also...since this is Head-fi. What are you guys going to listen to while you play after we inevitably get sick of the score.

I've been in the beta for a couple months now, and I have the collector's edition on pre-order at Amazon.

Good to hear, me and two of my friends all got very lucky to get a key. We all pre-ordered the game right after the announcement in 2008, an epic long time to wait for it. Me and my beyers are joyfully counting down to may 15th. The hours I played/wasted on diablo II are enormous. Not sure which class I'll go for first though. Perhaps a Monk but I'm still in doubt.

 

If there's enough interest we might consider a Head-fi group of sorts since it looks like the diablo II chat system will be quite different in III. I think it's a good place to start playing with some new random people who also enjoy headphones at the same time smily_headphones1.gif

That would be fun. I've never used headphones for gaming, I've always been a speaker guy. I'll have to give phones a try, as soon as I get my GrubDAC built this week.

 

I see you're in Belgium - I love Belgian ales, especially Flanders red. Expensive and hard to find in the states, though.

I'll believe that this is the release date when I actually have a copy in my hands....

Regarding release dates, Blizzard isn't really Valve :)

Blizzard has avoided any mention of an actual date until recently, it's always been "last quarter of this year" or "first quarter of next year". I think they mean it this time.

I'm excited for this. I never played the first and actually never finished the second. redface.gif  One big reason is that I could never successfully transfer save game files. Every time I tried it refused to work and so I had to start the game over again; so I never finished it.

 

But I have a feeling I will stick with Diablo III better and actually finish it. Who knows, maybe it will make me want to try Diablo II again and I will actually finish it.
