    Seems that way.

    Non US Customers get boned.

    GameAgent Still has the 19th (even on the site with £) as the release date I preordered via that so that Aspyr would get my money. I'm hoping that the code that I get to activate on steam will be sent out on the 19th and I can play but I suspect steam won't let me download till the 22nd which sucks. I was wanting to play in-between the Football. But hey least the Mac version is releasing simultaneously with the PC and not several month down the line which is totally awesome.

    If that Steam page is to be believed, it's around 11 hours away.

    I had to work overtime the entire week of Diablo 3's release for this!

    Interesting. I have 2-questions:

    1. Was there an update for the Mac version just as there was for the PC?
    2. I pre-ordered the PC expansion; do I also need to buy the Mac version?

    1) The Mac patch will go live when the expansion does tomorrow.
    2) The PC version is for Steam, which is Steamplay, so it will include the Mac version.

    Don't worry too much Ryan The first few weeks of D3 was full of bugs, hacks (if you didn't have an authenticator), Servers lagging, servers down/mass maintanence, log in servers struggling with demand, the AH half broken, severely under tuned Legendaries (which are being fixed in 1.1) and no RMAH (thats finally hit).

    Other than that its a great game and the best time to start is probably now anyway lol


    EDIT: Maybe not now after all lol since G&Ks is now almost out lol

    1.0.3 hits tomorrow, and is supposed to lower the spike damage in Inferno and tweak the droprates, too. There's plenty of time to play it anyway. It's not an MMO, so, as with Civ 5, you can play whenever you like. :D

    hehe that's why I'm not past nightmare Act II yet lol I've been spreading my time around too many good games atm and Civ 5 G+K dropping this week depending on location only adds to that hence my Edit statement above.

    No worries. I'm all caught up now. I'm halfway through Inferno on DH, in Hell on Barb, and we've got our Aspyr lunch squad going.

    At least working on Civ 5 achievements will give me hand a rest from D3, and an alternative to Dwarf Fortress!

    Kudos for a rapid response, Ryan. Guess that 30Mb was the update.

    Oh look, 984Mb downloading. That must be G&K.

    I pre ordered via game agent. When clicking "view order" and entering my order number and password, I'm told i'm supposed to click the download link net to the item name, but there is no such downed link.

    At gameagent.com, the game still says "pre order" gods and kings.

    At steampowered.com, it says Now Available and can be placed into cart. But obviously i'm not paying for it again. What do I do please?

    I am not intimately familiar with how Game Agent handles pre-orders.

    You should get a key to enter into Steam either by email or somewhere on the order page.

    I'm afraid I won't be able to find out until I get to the office tomorrow morning.

    Oh btw on a side note did the patch that just came out reset anyone else's setting such as Resolution and a few other bits and pieces?

    @AspyrRyan
    Thanks Ryan. I don't know what the deal is. Assuming I have the code, where on steam do I go to punch it in. All I see is the Purchase option in the store. Thanks.

    @Hyper Nova
    If you're in the UK then that is definitely the case since the release isn't until the 22nd.

    I am physically in Iceland on vacation right now, but when I pre-orderd the game, I logged in remotely to my desktop back home in New York so this can't be the case for me. I have no idea why I'm not able to download yet.
