Just some amusing thoughts when I got my regular edition copy this morning.
My local Kmart only had one copy of the game and it was behind the counter in the electronics department. There was no PC section to speak of (that I saw).
There is a notepad in the box.
Now I'm stuck at the character creation screen deciding what I want to roll.


I went with Demon Hunter, but was otherwise thinking about a Wizard. The Demon Hunter has a great machinegun arrow skill. It's pretty cool. Back into the fray during my lunch, yay.

Does anyone know when the free trial goes live? IDK if my system can run this game. My processor is a quad core 2.4 GHz and it says 2.8 GHz is needed.

They meant a 2.8 single core processor. Because you have quad core, your actually over the recommended specs (recommended specs is dual core).

UPS man should be here anytime now. Can't wait to dive right in. I just hope that there is a few hundred hours worth of content for this game. Something that fills the void of a MMO game.

how long did it take to download the cilent? i don't expect to be able to play immediately, so i figure I can leave it running then go out for a nice dinner, drinks with the lady, and come home with it near ready.

ahahaha. Thanks! I can't believe I missed that. :dunce:

My computer is from late 2008, so I thought it should be fine given blizzards track record. My NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE card is pretty weak, but it should still work according to a google search. My monitor is from around 2000 (the same one I used for D2), so I am not too worried about the graphics.

Installing now, well whatever process it is to install and update the game :lol:.

The installer takes forever, but on the bright side. Gives me time to do my Tribunal cases in LoL.

This is literally the first break I've taken. Been playing non-stop since 3AM (I was one of the lucky few able to login right away without issue). My eyes are on fire.

Looks as though Blizzard is currently performing some emergency maintenance. According to one of their community managers, servers should be back up in approximately one hour.

Fuck. I finally get the game, install it, and now I am told I can't try it until Blizzard fixes their fucking servers. Dammit, lol.

Yeah, two of my friends finally got on and we can't start a goddamn game. This game is so much fun past the Skeleton King that I killed 5 times in the beta.

Day one maintenance is just what you want when one of the biggest criticisms of your game is that there's no offline mode. :D

Anyone got any Guest Passes to spare? Or is there a better place where we can beg for it. I wasn't able to get to any of the beta so I want to try it first before plunging into it.

This is my first time begging for anything in this site. lol

An update has been posted. They expect all servers to be up in 2 hours :bomb:.

Well looks like I have to do something else for two hours while Blizzard fixes this game because I still can't log in to try the game (wasn't in the beta either, starting the game fresh).

I expected all this down time so I'm not even angry. I'm just now contemplating whether I should pick up my Max Payne 3 pre-order from Best Buy or wait till Sat.

On the subject of guest passes, I have 3 for Diablo and 1 for WoW. Pretty sure the WoW one is pointless since you can now play for free up to lvl 20, unless there is anything I missed. If someone wants the WoW one, just PM me for it. As for the D3 guest passes, I know I'll be giving at least one away but I'm trying to come up with a clever way of doing so.

No complaints about the downtime from me. Logged almost 12 straight hours of gameplay. I've only found one legendary item so far.

The wait for UPS to deliver this game is AGONIZING. Not that getting it earlier would have mattered with the server problems, but the option to try would have been nice.

I've been logged on since before server maintenance. As long as I don't log off I'm good to go.

Side note- Game is much more fun after killing the skeleton king. I even nearly died. I find it annoying that most of my skills don't work on my Demon Hunter unless I have a bow equipped even though I can equip things like javelins, etc.

For those that did not pre-order or is looking for collectors' edition still... you might want to check your local FRY'S store. My local store has a ton of them on display... asked one of the employees and he mentioned they have like 100+ in stock... They also had a lot of the collector's edition guide for $26.99 if you missed out on amazon deal too.

I too did not get the game yet since my current rig can't run it that well. I probably buy a new gaming laptop next month (thinking of Asus G75).

Im torn if i should just pull the trigger and get the CE now while its still in stock or just wait it out! Decision, decision!! hehe!

If you have a Battle.net account, go to Games & Codes and you can download and install the client. I already had D3 installed last night and didn't buy the game until this morning. I just linked the key to my account and it was ready to play.

Still can't log in. Hoping for an update from Blizzard sometime. I mean I kinda expected problems but then again it's sad when I haven't even been able to log in to it for almost 3 hours.

My decision to stick with Free super saver shipping via Amazon seems to have been a good one. No time to play during the week this week anyhow.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.
