Oh You Diablo 3!

It’s been a long time since any PC game made me rage, but rage I did last night in Diablo 3. Though saying I was raging in the game might be an overstatement as much of my time was spent getting disconnected. Maybe the gods of the internet just hate me, but time after time I’d start playing the game only to have the latency jump up and bite me in the ass.

I checked the forums and did it all. Upgraded my router firmware, forwarded ports, and updated Windows. All to no avail. And of course I was getting disconnected during battles, so I died, a lot. Eventually I guess the game showed me some mercy by not letting me connect at all. Instead, I was treated to a dessert of Error 3007. Oh you!

Diablo III: Oh hai!

Hey look, the Diablo III installer downloaded overnight. Thanks Santa! LOL, can’t install it yet, but soon. I don’t usually get swept away with the hype, but I did play the open beta a bit and I think on this occasion I’ll make an exception. I think my work over the next few days is going to be waaaay distracted.
