Today is Diablo III release day! Of course, I already have my copy, and I look forward to playing it later. You see, it’s more than just a game series for me – it’s a courtship. I was first introduced to Diablo II by a boyfriend during my military time (which resulted in me ‘borrowing’ his laptop for half a year), and was instantly hooked. I’ve played it off and on over the intervening years, and when my now-husband and I became an international item (with the plan already in place for me to get over here permanently), Diablo II was our way of spending quality time together on the daily. With such fond memories, how could we not want to continue playing a franchise which had already brought us so much joy?
So yeah, if I seem extra-thin on the ground here for the next week or two, you probably have an idea of why now. There’s monsters to kill, a world to explore, and about a million friends to chat with while I do it.
