they, Blizzard, pull me back in.
Well, us actually. The annual deal gets us 1) into the beta for the new expansion, and 2) Diablo III. The wife was always going to get Diablo III. There’s this cool looking flying mount. We also got to cash in on the pet codes we got after they cancelled the magazine on us. And there’s pandas. Pandas. (Already reserved my name: Sengxiongmao.)
It’s good. It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 months since we’d last logged in. But hopping back in, taking our Orcs up the Highlands, and noticing all the subtle little things (like map & letter reading graphics), and I’ve finally gotten “the Hallowed” achievement completed, I’m glad I’m back. The wife is too.
