Happy Diablo III Day!

and let it be known

As many gamers will be able to tell you, today marks the release of Diablo III, the long awaited next installment of Blizzard’s Diablo series. We’ve talked about the game before, and fully understand the hold it has over gamers of a certain age. It wouldn’t be launch day without server overcrowding and the discovery of some easily avoidable but still game breaking bugs, but, odds are, if you’re into the game and you’re reading this, you’d love to be playing right now and the only reason you’re not is probably because you have some sort of real life responsibility… Isn’t being a grown up fun?

In the meantime, enjoy this animated short produced by Blizzard with Titmouse Studios, the people behind Metalocalypse, Guitar Hero‘s cinematics, the opening titles of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the ping pong anime sequence on Community.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
