My midnight excursion for Diablo 3

Post by swviper on Tue May 15, 2012 1:46 am

It's 12:39 on Tues morning...April the 15th, 2012. For the first time ever I went to a 'Midnight Launch' of a game...Diablo 3

Pretty uneventful, few people at a time let into the store, I had taken 2 Xbox games I never play, figuring the Collectors Editions would be all gone by the time I got in. And as I got close to window, my expectations were confirmed, when I watched the last collectors edition box disappear. So I got in the Customer Service line to do my trade in for the regular version. The kid in front of me had one of the last collectors editions in the store. He was not a preorder tho'...so why was he in this line...one of the store staff, was grabbing pre-orders for folks, and sending them to the normal cash.

Lo and behold, he was trading in...well, he thought he was. When the clerk told him, he could not trade in two used games for the CE of Diablo 3, he was like, 'okay, I'll grab the regular'. As he turned around, I handed him mine...then looking past him, directly at clerk, said 'I'll take that one....'

And so....

Not a chance!

I got limited time in last night, was putting up some drywall after daughter 'Sparks' advancement ceremony. Got into Forza was going to practice, but ended up playing with Beef's Lancia in the rivals event.....re-reading that, I should consider re-phrasing....but too lazy....

I will get on Sedona tonight tho' after soccer and get the Challenger up to speed. I saved all Franks tunes that he sent (THANK YOU!!!!) so will have to see which one feels right for me, and check out to see where laptimes are atm.

For the drag race, right? Just making sure you're on the right track (Sunset) for the circuit race and not pulling a Cash. Wink

Servers didn't go live till 3AM my time, so I basically just installed it, then went to bed around 1:30. I have my 'Growth and Appraisal' evaluation today, so figured I should sneak in a couple hours sleep...will just keep a steady stream of caffeine in my system to get me through!
