So, Diablo III is out, and people bought it despite the fact that the always-online-DRM-crap obviously wouldn't work, and it doesn't work.

Ha ha!

Me, I'm waiting for Torchlight II, which isn't out yet, but won't be completely crapped up either.  And runs one third the price.

In all seriousness: As soon as it was announced that you can't pause, can't save when you want, and have to be attached to Blizzard's servers to play at all? They lost my sixty bucks, right then and there.

3 Yeah, Blizzard lost my money with "no offline play," too, although had they been honest about their reasons and admitted it was to monetize the game, instead of claiming it was to help out people who were confused that offline-created characters couldn't be converted to online ones, I might have been more forgiving.
My decision has worked out well for me, too, because recently Time Warner "upgraded" my cable modem to one that randomly drops my internet connectivity for 2-5 minutes several times a day.

4 What really cheeses me off is that EA are planning to pull the same stupid stunt with the new SimCity.  I hope their offices catch fire and the fire engines can't reach them because the city planners forgot to join the roads up.

6 Well, I got my copy of D3 because I told Blizzard I was going to play WoW for the next year at least (which I'd planned anyway).

I don't know if I'd have paid $60 for it, but getting it as a premium for doing something I'm doing anyway is okay...and that leaves me money for T2 when it comes out. grin
