Diablo III Patched

The Diablo III Website announces a new automatic patch is now available for Diablo III to update Blizzard's action/RPG sequel to version 1.0.3.b. This is for the Americas, and users are warned this will interfere with cross-region play until all territories are in sync. Here are the patch notes:

Auction House

  • Bug Fixes
    • The "Bid" and "Buyout" buttons will now be correctly grayed-out in the confirmation window when attempting to purchase an item with insufficient gold

Bug Fixes

  • General
    • Fixed a bug where leaving a heavily-populated General chat channel would prevent players from rejoining any General chat channel until they logged out and logged back in
    • Fixed several tooltip-related bugs that were occurring when viewing items with 2 or more sockets in the auction house and profile pages
    • Fixed a rare crash with tutorials on item pickup

To me this genre is a $20-$30 sell point. This is retro. You want your
$60 then make it 3D, like a Borderlands but with Diablo lore. But then again I'm wrong because it was the fastest selling pc game ever at $60. But to me that just proves how much people are up Blizzards ass and don't measure things equally. A top down is a genre indies and kickstarters do. They need to release a 2012 game, which would be a FPS/ePS view that still plays like Diablo.

Right. While we're at it, let's also migrate Starcraft to first-person, because that works well with that type of game, amirite?

Protip: first-person view is just one of the many perspectives and styles, and it does not fit all types of gameplay.

It is always a lot easier to interact with the environment in an RPG when it is quasi-isometric rather than first-person, and it also allows for more strategic combat, as you can see what's all around your character, instead of just in front of you.
