So I have officially reached the end of the Beta content of Diablo 3.

A few differences from the beta, but nothing overt. Just a higher number of champion monsters. I actually quite like it. It add unique monsters fairly regularly along your path that otherwise might have been predictable content.

Also despite having beaten him twice before the skeleton king is an interesting first boss. I am curious how much more difficult he will be at higher difficulties. Not that he was hard, but I shudder with fear, and shiver with excitement at the thought of inferno mode.

Also I have created a photo album where I will be throwing some photos as I proceed. Besides the Beta content I will try and keep it spoilers free.

Alright Diablo 3 purchased and now installing.

Part of my experience of picking up a pre-order physical copy at midnight release. The waiting for pre-release copies is an old theory rather than just doing a digital download unless you happen to be picking it up the next day.

Either way, game is installing and great times will be had. Will post up a few hours or so into game play.

I am going to be playing Diablo 3 a large number of hours during Tuesday and Wednesday. I thought I would share a sort of 'status update' thing as I go through the game here on Google +.

Sharing screen shots, funny or epic stories. Just little shorts as I progress through. Looking forward to it!

Care for another 'urban legend'? This was has been verified as true by a couple sources.

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

Thanks +Kyle Salewski for providing the actual video link here:
