Goodbye weekend productivity!

Really wish I had the time for this this weekend :(

Arg... too bad I have a date tonight.

Sadly...you can beat the beta with each of the five characters in a single day (though you can keep doing Skeleton King runs once it ends). It's a very short beta...but it's very awesome and I've dumped a good amount of hours into it over the last few months.

DUDE WHAT?! Thank you so much for this post. I'm leaving work early!!

@spellshock: If your date doesn't understand that you canceled for this they just aren't worth it.

I have a date with destiny, in the form of D3 beta testing.

Damn, going camping leaving today at noon and getting back Monday night....

I've had issues getting into the first two, but I have a friend that really wants me to get it. I guess I'll play the beta and see if it's anything I'd be interested in.

@spellshock: This is why my husband and I married gamers. LOL

Our anniversary is May 4th, and we were talking this week about how awesome it would be if either DIII or GW2 did an open beta weekend THAT weekend!

13 years of bliss... because we stuck to dating/marrying a gamer. :::grins:::

I :::squeed::: my little heart out when I found out DIII's release is May 15th... my 41st birthday is May 17th - talk about an AWESOME birthday present!

You clearly need to hear this song:

If you wanna be happy
For the rest of your life,
Never make a non-gamer your wife,
So from my personal point of view,
Get an gamer girl to marry you.

;)

@gizzynubalo: My anniversary is on May 6th. It just so happens that I met my wife online gaming (Team Fortress Classic), and ended up moving to the USA from Canada. Benefits: I always have an epic healer in my group.

Why would someone downvote my comment? I don't get it.

If any of you are wondering like me if the client is available before the beta opens, it is. You can start downloading the game now from the battle.net website (It'll be under your account's Game Clients tab) and be ready to play when the time comes.

Downloading the client at the house while I'm at work. Thank you, LogMeIn! :D

I'm so conflicted... part of me is curious, but stress tests tend to leave a bad taste in my mouth. I was going to buy swtor, but it was so laggy on the stress test about a week before it came out that I couldn't bring myself to pay money for it (although I'm sure they improved the lag on the final version)

edit: oops. forgot I had an authenticator on my account. No idea where that is. Oh well, that makes the decision for me.

@gizzynubalo: quit clowning around, everyone knows girls don't play games.

Haven't been impressed with the D3 beta so far. I think the release will come in big and fizzle out quick.

vote-for4vote-against

@spellshock: If they don't understand now, how are they going to understand when you disappear for days at a time after you buy the game???

@panthiest: That stress test was really rough but the actual game has never seen lag like that. (at least I never did)

I was saving myself for May 15th. But like most unmarried couples I just can't wait to experience the bliss that is killing hoards of demonic minions in hell. What were we talking about again?

vote-for14vote-against

WORKING FROM HOME JUST GOT REALLY AWESOME, AND HORRIBLY UNPRODUCTIVE.

vote-for4vote-against

Woot, figure out who voted this down and ban them. Troll all you like, that is over the line.

vote-for5vote-against

@sumduud: LMAO!! I will be sure & let my husband & kids know I have been masquerading as a female all these years!

Ah, if only I had a nickel for every time I've been told that I can't be a girl because girls don't game... I'd at least be able to afford the CE of both DIII & GW2 without having to tweak the budget. :::grins:::

(The DIII CE won, incidentally - we waited longer for it... pretty much since finishing LOD when it came out LOL)

vote-for4vote-against

@bogie21: I actually upped it because I wish I could go camping. 2 young children keep me from doing it for the time being. I would MUCH rather be camping than playing a beta game, regardless of the game. And I am as hard core a gamer as there is.

vote-for6vote-against

@darinhansen: Lol, it happens almost every day. Yesterday I watched a deal go from 80+ with no downvotes to -13 downvotes in a matter of minutes, then no more downvotes after that. It is the same person/people doing it daily. Haters gonna hate.

vote-for5vote-against

oh man, .... Im seriously busy this entire weekend!

vote-for8vote-against

@lichme: I don't even get it... these people should find something more productive to do with their time than just downvote FREE deals? How is free a bad deal EVER? Free bullet in the head? At least I didn't pay for it....

vote-for5vote-against

@woocls: I think we have a different interpretation of this date. It's more like a conjugal visit.

vote-for3vote-against

Date night or Diablo . . . Well, I've been waiting almost a decade for D3 so I think that takes precedence over the girl I've only known a short while. :oP

vote-for3vote-against

@gizzynubalo: lol, I felt I had to make the obligatory no girl gamers comment. An ex-girlfriend of mine is responsible for me playing Diablo.

vote-for2vote-against

I know what I am doing this weekend. Time to leave work!

vote-for2vote-against

Better get goin while its still free.

vote-for4vote-against

nnnoooo I'm having a baby next month! I can't juggle both!

Sigh, getting a "player has been disconnected" error every time I try to log in.

@sumduud - it IS an obligatory comment, of course!!

Now just imagine the comments my sons get when their friends find out their mom is a gamer. "Dude, your mom? No way! Moms don't game!"

Alright! The perfect weekend to have a sinus infection and strep throat!

Stupid Error 37. I was so excited to get home.....

One doesn't simply beta-test Diablo 3...

Me and my friend just beat the Beta together. It was awesome.

I have a full day tomorrow starting early....Everyone who sees me shall suffer the consequences of me staying up all night. Any complaints will be redirected to the Blizzard customer service reps.

@woocls: That's good to hear. It was unplayable then :(

vote-for1vote-against

Curious how many played and what they thought of it? Everyone I have talked to (only about 10 of my gamer friends) said they were much less impressed than they expected and most said that this convinced them NOT to buy it.

vote-for1vote-against

@sumduud: I played... also invited a friend who was unfamiliar with the Diablo 'verse to play with us. We only got to play about an hour and a half Friday night initially - but she liked it so much, she pre-purchased it first thing Saturday morning.

We continued playing throughout the weekend, trying different classes and playing through to the end.

We all loved it. Even with the (expected) bugs & issues - it was a stress test open beta weekend after all - we consider the money we spent on our pre-purchases WELL worth it, and can't wait for May 15th.
