God almighty the level of Blizzard cocksucking on that forum is truly reaching never-before seen levels.

Almost like when Mass Effect 3 came out...

I honestly think Blizzard's fanboys are far, FAR exceeding Bioware's ones. 90% of Bioware's forum agreed that the ME3 ending was absolute horseshit. Do you think that 90% of Blizzard fanboys agree that the state in which D3 was launched is horseshit?


I'll go one further. The game itself is horseshit. Seriously if I was reviewing it I'd give it a 6.

1. Limited bad guy selections. I'm ending act 2 and still killing skeletons??? There's like six types of bad guys per act, none of which are particularly interesting visually.

2. Uninspiring levels. Act 3 might kick things up a notch but the first "oooh cool!" scenery moment was the very end of Act 2 (okay, the Oasis was pretty cool, but that was the end of act 2 anyway). Act 1 felt like someone put a "gloom" filter over everything, which might have been cool but it washed out all the detail it seems like.

3. Shallow skill system- Everyone I've talked to says that they stumbled into a basic skill combination and never deviated from it for the rest of the game. They'd try out new abilities and say f*ck it and go back to the old ones. The skill system and the cooloff timer for selected skills means you're never going to be gearing up for a situational combat, so there's no point in ever varying. If you're in a group you can change a few things up, but even then you're basically being inefficient to be novel.

4. It's just... not fucking fun. I've put hours into the game and can count the number of real "fights" that were mildly interesting on one hand. I'm waiting for the fun to start. The only two reasons why I kept playing was that A: The plot never really "pauses" and it encourages you to keep playing and B: The loot drops turn you into a f*cking Skinner rat hitting the bar to get a food pellet. I actually feel kind of dirty after playing D3. I haven't had fun, I haven't been particularly entertained, but I kept playing it anyway.

I think this post is spot on, I did cave and get it, I still think the graphics are substandard ala 2006, the plot is so predictable its laughable, and the way they've handled items in the sense that rares are better than legendary/set items when legendary and set items drop about .00000000001% of the time to encourage the use of the AH is just about as bad a design decision you can make.

Now people's accounts are getting hacked, so much for that "secure" online only protection eh blizzard? How long before dupes start showing up on the AH? Any minute now?

Fact of the matter is, as addictive as loot hunting is, the game itself is pretty mediocre aside from the cinematics.
