Nice of them to make it free. The one thing I would have liked to see added, but wasn't, is a never ending game mode. Would be nice instead of just working your way to the boss fight and end game, to instead be able to move around the maps freely without the pursuit.

There is a mod that does this. It's called Infinite Space

Blizzard president Mike Morhaime on razing Diablo 3's auction house, rebuilding Titan

"I think our players recognized that. We were really looking to see what would happen with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, because they don't have an auction house. The response to the console versions was extremely positive, and most people cited the lack of an auction house."

Well, that and the offline mode.

They created the auction house to undercut or compete with black market gold farmers. I get that. The problem is that they took the additional step of designing the loot system so that it forced you to the auction house. That's where they screwed the pooch. Had they made a complete game that stood alone, THEN added in the auction house, I don't think you would have seen nearly the same number of complaints.
I don't think they designed the loot system around the AH. If you remember loot from D2 or LoD, it was similar to what we have got in D3. It was hard to have nice items in D2/LoD without trading, and before 1.10, after several trades, you could have a character who would slay everything on Hell in any location. The same worked in D3, except for insane champions/unique monsters (Invincible-Molter-Jailer and similar), but they simply adjusted the difficulty.

I don't get why people want offline mode in Diablo 3 - a game where you know the story after 10 hours and after that you only look for loot so your character can be more leet than others and you play with others to socialize. Diablo single player is like drinking alone, it's the last step before the border between being a nerd and a lunatic.

Because when I didn't have internet for the last 2 weeks I really would have liked to play Diablo 3, but couldn't due to lack of internet connection.

And That’s A Wrap! BlizzCon® 2013 Has Officially Come to an End.

Zug-zug.

I'm surprised, especially with the design of the new WOW expansion to cover the history of WC1/WC2, that they didn't announce any sort of online download of the two games. I'd gladly pay $5-$10 each for digital copies that would run fine under 7/8...


Probably will be in the CE's on the flash drive like Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3.

Not that I'm advocating cheating (perish the thought! *thinks back to the fact that he's cheated in every single single-player game he's ever played* heh) but if you look at the video (and can stand the guy's 'uh, but ya' over and over and over and...ARGH!) at about 1:42, you'll see that it says that if you leave a job too many times without finishing it, you'll be put in the pool as well. I wouldn't say that's cheating, just being a pain in the ass...fine line? *shrugs*

=-Rigs-=

Well the 'pool' is bullshit. I was put in the 'Bad Sport' pool for 2 days because I was blowing up other players vehicles without them in it. I was being griefed by bastard's that cheated and glitched their way up to the 80's the first week, so I would kill them and blow up their cars so it would cost them time and money to get the car back.


They need to just do what they did with GTA4 and Red Dead. Have 'fun' and 'normal' servers, allow people to create crews like posse's in RDR, tweak what a Bad Sport is, and finally go over the transaction bank logs of characters the first few weeks that Online was live and somewhat functional.

But at the same time my 1st Gen Nexus 7 tablet can play GTA3 pretty smooth (I think, as I have never played it past the 1st mission because the controls just suck ass to me personally).

Question: How many of those 300 cars from Forza were 1)with the launch of the game, and 2) were part of DLC packs/Season pass? Or the VIP Pass or given out for free, or were exclusive if you had previous saved games or achievments from previous games. Easily over 100 cars just in the DLC packs.

Also they mention the 1000 cars in Gran Turismo. Do I really need to point out how GT5 had 100's of crap low quality cars, vs the premium cars, or still shitty damage modeling? GT5 Prolog was released in 2007 as a 'lite' version of the game with only 37 cars, and the 'rest' of the game was released in 2010. Also GT5 had 100 different versions of ricer's with the exact same body just different specs.

Or new driving physic's due to open wheel cars? And what about Maps? Forza 4 had a dozen or so maps, with dozen's of variations, but wouldn't even add them all to the playlists of games like Tag Virus. And even then I believe there was only 1 or 2 maps added to the over the entire life of the franchise because of the work involved to make them, and it fragmented the player base (was awesome to get point to point races back in Horizon's).

The article itself is just so... mindlessly... stupid? I mean it suffers from the 'screen door on a sub' mentality of being full of holes.

To me the game was great for 1 to 3 runs, but after that I was done with it, and sure as hell didn't want to run a 8th or 9th character back through the game for the loot.
Had they done some sorta universal patch with each DLC so (for example) you could use the DLC vehicles if the host had them in any part of the game that supported the vehicle type, would have been nice.

I'm not a console gamer but if someone gave me a PS4 I would take it and probably get some use out of it. That said, after I read the headline that Slurpee was giving away free Xbones it dawned on me that I wouldn't take one even if it were free.

Sure you would, and so would I...so we could turn around, sell them and use the money for something else.

I would feel so dirty though!

Prez with all the money you made you could buy the last few games on Steam that you don't have

There is even an achievement for it too!

The problem isn't AMD's design, it has always been with it drivers. Not playing the fanboi card or anything but ATI drivers have been a mixed bag for over a decade.

That movie ain't Robocop. Robocop's supposed to be, you know, a robot and not some cyborg ninja.

This. Also the suit looks absolutely horrible and nothing like the original robocop, which was completely badass. He is supposed to be 90% robot, not 90% gay...

Hey now I'd do him.. I mean it's all about the hardware right? *wink wink nudge nudge*

I was following Agents of Shield until I got rid of TV Cable to save money and can't say I was impressed at all. Just didn't have the Firefly/Buffy 'goodness' I was expecting.

I dunno I think I could handle it, if the suit was kept that sexy Stingray Corvette Blue through the entire movie like the first 2 movies (I don't count the 3rd).

The grocery bag puppets that sell movie tickets got a movie? The end of CGI is near!

I have found that aiming for the skydiving target (least in landing) is to keep your body aimed at the middle of the target and then when you get really close hit both bumpers (least on 360) and you can nail the landing every time.

Proper Mechwarrior/Crimson Skies game? Forza 5 on the PC?

Or are we going to get Vista exclusive Halo 2, and more craptacular ports of craptacular games like Fable 3?

2 weeks with no internet sucks, but my physical therapist says the tremors will go away soon enough.

That being said, Saints Row 4 and Batman Origins. Been playing them and is it me or is it year of the recycled sandbox game? Granted not very far into either, but it's hard to get excited over what feels like glorified expansion packs.
And Black Flag isn't bad, but borrowing a friends copy for the 360, the bugs were fairly glaring (I guess I didn't run the right path the game wanted me to at the start of the game to fight the Assassin, so I run right up to him and nothing happens and had to reload the game), the ship combat brings back some nail biting fun almost as good as the old Mechwarrior 4 days. And for some reason I really dig the shanty's.
