This week is mainly about Diablo III. Carl and I chat about the game's launch, what £40 should get consumers in terms of a working game, we argue in defence of "entitled" gamers, and have another little chat about the dubious nature of always-on DRM. Elsewhere, though, we we take a look at Capcom's re-evaluation of their controversial on-disc DLC policy, ask if it's really the fault of the consumers who buy rip-off merchandise regardless, and look back fondly on days gone by when it was actually easier to play the game you'd just bought immediately.
