Feeling like you're missing out on all the Diablo III beta goodness?  Want to try out the game for old time's sake?  Luckily for you, Blizzard is letting you play the Diablo III beta this weekend.  Starting on  April 20 at 12:01 p.m. PDT (noon), until Monday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, any player with a Battle.net account will be able to jump on and play until level 13 by themselves or with other players.  You can prepare yourself by downloading the client right now because at noon, expect a lot of frantic players jumping on.  Warning, if you were previously addicted to Diablo II like I was, this beta will immediately get you back on the crack.
