I have some mixed feelings about Diablo 3, and as is the custom among my people, I will now share those feelings with you in annoyingly granular detail.
My birthday was this week, and as a present to myself I’ve decided to give me a ton of extra work!
I have walked the path Dear Esther laid out for me twice.
