Fans across the country lined up at video game retailers late Thursday night to purchase copies of “Diablo III” for the PC and “Max Payne 3” for consoles in what has been a whirlwind 24 hours for gaming.
With a combined 21-year absence since the “II/2” versions of “Diablo” and “Max Payne,” fans were eager to get a jump on the highly anticipated sequels.
“Diablo III” players arrived home after installing their games to a variety of issues due to the game’s overwhelming popularity. Players on Twitter reported getting a dreaded “Error 37” message, stating that the game’s servers were overloaded. The error message soon became a trending topic on Twitter.
