Its time …

After waiting for 10 years after Blizzard releasing a sequel to its Diablo series, Diablo III is finally out.  After a nightmare start in terms of server connectivity etc. I finally started yesterday with Charlotte almost falling asleep in front of the computer 🙂  Anyhow, always up for a game, my gamer tag on Battle.net…
