Didn't really matter did it? People don't sto buynig things they want. No one should buy Madden games, MW games, or SIM games, but millions and millions do every 6 months.

I can't imagine there will be a D4 or anything like it - so I am happy with the outcome. Even D2 requires online play through


Sorry dude, I respect you as one of the best members around here but the slippery slope that D3 sets is terrible for this industry and for gamers, and I'm not talking about the online play for multiplayer, I'm talking about having to be online always and rely on a third party servers to play a freaking single player game. That is a terrible slippery slope, publishers will go on with this idea and in the end gamers will have nobody to blame but themselves, they've said yes in a large majority when the choice was given to choose to affirm an always-online scheme for single player games or refuse it by refusing to buy a game that by the look of the first reviews coming out isn't even as good as D2 was.

The next time a publisher puts out an always-online scheme for a SP game, like Ubisoft did, none of you will have any right of any kind to complain about it because you voluntarily chose that to happen, you voted with your money and that's the only thing publishers will listen to.

And so the industry slowly but surely walks into a future where I don't see many people still gaming in those bleak conditions where you rent a game but pay a full price for it and are dependent on third party servers, all for a SP game.

But what is going to be done? I give a LOT of money to indie developers and enjoy a lot of other games, but man, I didn't want ot miss this, and I am glad I didn't. I don't have the answer, and I don't LIKE what they are doing - but again, I didn't want to miss this title.

Still looking forward to Grim Dawn and TL2.
