(Work In Progress!) 

Done with Diablo 3

My affair with Diablo 3 was fast and furious and left me feeling scorned and bitter. Unlike most people I stopped playing far before I should have but I can explain why with two simple yet painful words: always online.

Needless to say I did not end up writing a review, but after some time, and perhaps a decent apology, Diablo 3 and I may once again spend some quality time together.

“He’s excited to go into the casual space as well,” Campbell said of Jaffe. “He’s got some projects that he’s excited about. So we’re kind of going down two separate paths.” – The Salt Lake Tribune

You can imagine the surprise and dismay that Jaffe fans began to express. Due to his amazing community involvment, it wasn’t long before Jaffe himself took to twitter to clear up some of the rumours………
