Oh I think I might have to give that a go.
I've been debating on whether or not to get it.
Gonna have nothing to do all next week during the day time, so this could be good.
If anyone would be nice enough to give me a code, I'll rep you
Oh! This is good, I didn't know this~ Thanks for sharing! Definitely worth trying out.
So, is the download for this not available yet? It's not under my Manage Download thing in my Battle.net account
