    [​IMG]Here's a bunch of Diablo III stuff, starting with the official launch presser:

    DIABLO III NOW LIVE
    It's a bad day for demons . . .

    PARIS, France. - May 15, 2012 - Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Diablo® III, the highly anticipated next chapter in its award-winning action-role-playing-game series, is now available in retail stores throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Gamers in the regions above as well as in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil are also able to purchase Diablo III digitally via the game's official website (http://www.diablo3.com).

    In the wake of a Blizzard record of more than 2 million preorders*, and following more than 8,000 midnight launch events earlier today at retail stores worldwide,gamers across the planet are now storming Sanctuary in hot pursuit of the Lord of Terror.​
    Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports on an emergency fix for "Error 37-ing":

    "We are in the process of performing an emergency maintenance for all Diablo III servers to resolve several issues that are currently impacting the game. This maintenance may cause some interruption in communication, ability to log in, use of in-game features, and disconnections."​
    They also have a Three Hours With Diablo III impressions piece, and PC Gamer managed to get 6 hours in.

    Eurogamer has the full interview we mentioned yesterday, which covers "replayability and post-launch plans". VG247 says a NeoGAF user claims to have finished the game in 12.5 hours.

    CNET asks Is Diablo III Still Relevant? and The Rampant Coyote talks about the importance of the original game.
