Doesn't it annoy you if a well known blogger keeps on showing the pictures of his new game with his new rig? (or her, but if he's a she, then it really doesn't matter right - as long as her rig is big...).
So there's this guy with a heckuva PC, an Intel Core i7 and he keeps on prattling on facebook about how he got a beta invite for the new game Diablo 3 by blizzard. At first I was like, hmmmm, another remake? Bah, I'm too old for these games. Then I was like, what idiot would post his PC specifications on Facebook anyway?
Don't be that idiot.
So, here's a video of this shitty looking game.
I tried looking for the PC system requirements of Diablo 3 and I was a bit annoyed that they needed these:

Not that I'm unemployed or anything but I'm still using a "legacy" PC that is 10 years old! Why? Because I have to "prioritize".
For me, the decision matrix is like this: "baby" > "hot and spanking new PC"
Guess who wins?
Let's see here, in the case of "Baby vs Dad" this is the end result:
A Family That Plays Diablo 2 Together....
So anyway, my kids, wife and I have lately taken a huge liking to the "legacy" isometric non graphic card extensive version Diablo 2. So ya, I do want to buy the Diablo 3 thing, but to buy it, I'd have to buy a new PC too.
