The launch was complete with a small cosplay contest

We've been waiting for over a decade and now, it's finally here! Dear Techies and Pinoy gamers, say hello to evil and sleepless nights once again as Blizzard's Diablo III has officially been launched and, thanks to the efforts of the hardworking men and women over at IP E-Games, we here in the Philippines were not left behind. Seriously, you guys deserve our hugs and kisses, and a big banner that says "Thank You!" in big bold letters.

We've already talked about Diablo III several times before, so now, we'll just give you a refresher. The game picks up from where Diablo II left off, with players choosing from five different character levels (Barbarian, Monk, Demon Hunter, Wizard, Witch Doctor) and being tasked to take on an epic journey to save the whole Sanctuary and beat the crap out of the Lord of Terror. Sounds somewhat familiar? Well, it is if you're a fan of the Diablo series but, hey, we're not complaining!

So, what's new? Well, Diablo III is powered by a new graphics engine which hopefully results in gamers having visual orgasm. There are also new elements and tweaks in terms of combat gameplay, a new quest and skill system, and communication tools which allow players to easily band with each other for cooperative online quests. Diablo III also includes what is called the auction house system where players can buy and/or sell their magic items using in-game gold or real money. If you're wondering if your rig is capable of playing the game, see the system requirements below.
