Diablo® III

I will cry if it's released on 1/23/2012

Because that's when school starts for me.

You're in luck, because there's no way in hell that it will come out that soon.

Blizzard doesn't release games with one week's notice. More like 2 months notice. We shall see.

Because I've been waiting twelve damn years.

*edit* bro tears only, of course (bro tears are when you cough once and then sorta shudder and then say 'naw man I got it')

Well, video games in general are usually released on Tuesdays, so at the very least, we can be safe in assuming that it won't be released on a Monday.

Also, since your semester starts in just over a week, it is also highly likely that the game won't be released before the start of your semester based on the fact that retailers need at least some advance notice before a game is released, and less than a week's notice might anger those retailers.

Have a good start to your semester! Now, could they release it on the same day you should be studying for an exam or writing a paper? That's far more likely, LOL.

Usually. But it's important to note that Diablo 2 was released on a Thursday and LOD on a friday.

Wrath of the Lich King was released on a Thursday as well.

I start school on the 23rd as well as I would be happy if it came out then. Better than like April when I'm doing the bulk of the work for the semester.

But none of those were Mondays! :) My personal theory is that I believe game companies prefer not releasing games on Mondays so that the retailers don't have awkward delivery shipment issues (ie. if Amazon would normally send them out for delivery Monday night to arrive on Tuesday for example - they can't send them out for delivery on a Sunday night). They may release on a Thursday or Friday, but usually not Mondays. I think Saturday thru Monday are days least likely to have game releases. Now, seeing as how I'm a psychology grad student and not employed by a gaming company or shipping company, I can't really be sure that my theory is right at all.

I'm also trying to be a little bit silly, since none of us know the release date and every post on this forum asks about the release date. Holding onto some shreds of humor makes my post-doc grant writing process more bearable.
