This game has loading screens?

Just saw this one this morning which prompted me to search for more tips since the load screen goes by so quickly. Couldn't find a text file locally so I searched the web and found this thread.

It would be nice if Blizzard provided a full official list. (Apparently they also thought the load screen tip about Elective Mode was sufficient.)

Thanks very much!

A few more for the list:

"Equip followers with new weapons and abilities as they level up."

"Defeating Nightmare difficulty will unlock Hell difficulty."

"Defeating Normal difficulty will unlock the next difficulty setting, Nightmare."
It isn't word for word but I saw this the first week of the game.

"The items you create with blacksmithing will be more powerful after having made a few."

Or something like that.
