May is upon me. May means exams, conferences, and graduation exams in such short succession that I seem to blink on April 30th and suddenly open my eyes again on June 1st. Without really knowing where the time in between went. Unless you count some telltale dark circles under the eyes.
This year, May is even worse! Into that time of non-existent free time, Blizzard dares to release the game I’ve been waiting for since… early 2001. Now, kids, Diablo holds a special place in my heart. I played a warrior named Ulf in Diablo I to take off steam from a terrible defeat of my football team, Bayer Leverkusen, in 1996. My husband (then-boyfried, obviously) proposed to me during a slash fest of our Paladin and Barbarian sometime between Acts 1 and 2 in Diablo II. We played and replayed the game for over a decade and waited for Diabo III to come out.
Damn, I love it.
The best thing is that Diablo now has good-looking male characters. AND you can dye their equipment.
