Gasp and recoil all you like, I think Charlie raises a valid question.

This weekend I had the pleasure of playing in the Diablo 3 open beta weekend and I am happy to report that if you love the series, you will not be disappointed. The graphics are tight, the sound is incredible, and all of the iconic Diablo beats are there. Within moments of creating Bartleby the Wizard, I was playing as if I’d never stepped away from Diablo 2. I am of the mindset that sequels should feel similar and Diablo 3 delivers. I will save a big review for the launch but I just want to say, I was already excited to play but this weekend sealed the deal. I will lay down the cash for my pre-order and pace the floors until May 15th.

I would also like to take a moment to thank everyone who orders merchandise from my online store, clicks an ad banner, Stumbles, Reddits, or Pins a comic or mentions d20monkey online. It is very easy for folks to get lost in the shuffle of hectic schedules and I just want you to know that I keep every nice piece of fan mail, fan art, or blog post. Without all of you, my dream of doing this full-time would be impossible and thanks to you, every day I get a little bit closer.

Thank you.
