News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party
44. Re: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party Mar 25, 2014, 07:13 Armengar
 
logged in at 10pm, go live was at 11pm. I think I had about 2 minutes of red connection and a bit of warping. Then all smooth again. Activated the wings and all seems well. Got my inferno 2 WD from 60 to 64 in about 1 hour playing through act 5.

Cant wait to unlock the next NPC (shes just joined the party) so I can reroll some "almost perfect" items that ive been saving.

Found a few drops in act 5 that have been keepers. Still rocking my zunimassa though even though a few have dropped the old school approaches. Ive crafted a good weapon some time ago and reasonable bracers. Not had as much luck with shoulders or amulet (the amulet if fine though). The belt dropped last thing, replaced some gold diggers (going to swap pyro for rain of toads since it has the % on them)

For headset I use a plantronics voyager pro. It also works on my phone and syncs to the car too. It works just fine with glasses (I wear sunglasses a lot as im mildly photophobic).

I dusted off D3 for a run. Probably first time ive played in over 6 months. It really has changed, its almost a different game now. My previous comfortable MP6 WD plays just fine in inferno 2, inferno 3 is tricky. My other characters are about the same level as I would expect too.

Loot wise, within 10 minutes I had a legendary that was an increas on my already decently kitted out WD. Same with my barbarian, some of the loot that was dropping was an upgrade.

Crafting is simple now, that is good. I did spend 10 minutes creating and deleting new characters to get a buffer of common debris from the starting equipment. Overall positive, i'll probably play a bit more this weekend.

Russia vs US? It will be bigger than that. Even Germany is starting to get behind the Ukraine and they have a lot to lose. Gas is the only currency Russia has over Europe. If they shut the pipeline then Europe lose 30% of its gas supply overnight - that will be enough to plunge countries into darkness.

France, Spain and UK are much less reliant on Russian gas for the obvious reasons above. Germany not so.

However, Russia needs the gas to survive financially, their banks have already gone from 5% to 7% interest in a week. That is not a good sign. US and Europe can simply add targetted sanctions. This is no longer USSR days where black market goods were only for the wealthy, even regular citizens want their starbucks. If the sanctions are piled on then it wont be as easy as sending the KGB to shut the masses up. The military is not quite a commissar based as the old soviet days either, troops are taught more, require more and are paid more.

Crimea will be annexed, that is obvious but the cost to Russia will be great as borders will simply close to Russia. UK will start fracking and release the massive reserves that are already being proven to plug the Russian gas gap. Russia will collapse financially or become a Chinese puppet.

Overall the US will sit and wait. They will possibly use this to establish bases, listening posts, fly zone rights etc for monitoring purposes. Overall nothing will happen, Crimea will be annexed and Russia will lose a lot of trade benefits from EU and US. A good indicator will be the number of Oligarchs selling Russian Roubles there is a steady decline of USD vs RUB - not massive yet - but compared to (say) EUR to USD to GBP there is a decline.

it depends on who you have to pay. In the UK courts have a posted limit on coinage accepted to stop this sort of malarky.

You get round it by issuing cheques on silly things. In recent times (past few years) anti fraud legislation means banks can reject silly items if they deem it possibly fraudulent. I admit that might be hard if the customer makes out the cheque after proving identity inside their bank (i.e. make it out on an egg or something).

We treat coop as being multiplayer with monsters on + friendly fire. Genius LAN network cards were great in DOS. We all bought the same ones at the same time so they would work together.

didnt the first release have mouse look missing from the options? Didnt mouse look need to be patch in?

AO was great and according to anecdotal evidence ticked along financially. Then all of a sudden they just ignored it! They had a rabid player base, fans, new signups and nothing. Ignored for other crap.

Shame really as I enjoyed playing too.

D3 often brings huge polarised views here on blues. People tend to either froth at the mouth over it or just play the game (oddly enough there doesnt seem to be many rabid die hard pro-D3 posters...)

I probably wont bother with the expansion. I dont think ive logged in for months now, other things to play, steam sale games to install etc.

It is a bit steep considering it is a DLC/expansion though.

Nothing on the steam sale for me so far. Either ive hit critical mass now or the sales have been weak for me.

civil law also requires a much higher burden of proof. Getting that wrong can bankrupt both sides in a battle.

I still liked D3, it was good enough for what I wanted and I certainly got my monies worth. However, I cant be arsed with it now. Ive moved onto other games on my steam list so unless all my mates get into this for coop goodness I wont be bothering.

If they released this 6 months ago then sure, i'd have been up for it. Too much has passed now.

Noted that D2:LOD came about the same time afterwards and pretty much marked the "proper" D2 era.

News Comments > Al Lowe Leaves Replay: Sex Actually Involved
22. Re: Al Lowe Leaves Replay: Sex Actually Involved Dec 13, 2013, 03:39 Armengar
 
showing regular porn to a 16 year old might get you on the sex offenders register here in the UK.

Gay sex consent is 18, hetro 16 so in this case he would have been either sent down on a short sentence or probation. Either way in this particular case he would have been on the sex offenders register and no chance whatsoever of getting a job anywhere near children ever again. No government contracts would touch an ex sex offender and he's never be able to disclose this as a "spent" crime - he would ALWAYS have to declare it.

Oddly enough, the only way to get off the sex offenders register permanently in the UK is have a court mandated "new identity" such as if you are a witness to a MAJOR event (mob boss testify etc) or perhaps you mass murdered people and got released (such as the bulger case).

News Comments > Leaked Fallout 4 Details?
11. Re: Leaked Fallout 4 Details? Dec 12, 2013, 07:33 Armengar
 
I only recently completed F3 as it was a buggy wasteland of pain and suffering when I first tried. New vegas was great though and worked for me (bought in a steam sale so patched by then).

F3 now is playable but nowhere near as good as new vegas. I havent completed all of the DLC for FO:NV (again in a steam sale).

I did like some touches in F3 such as both forks of the bomb (good saves if only to set the bomb off and murder everyone in the tower afterwards).

I remember having an argument with someone over wine vs windows. My gist was he spent more on beefing his linux hardware to a level that ran games in wine than I did on a windows license (by a factor of 2 at least).

I could still dual boot to windows just for gaming if I liked. He still couldnt get it.

In my rather advancing ears anything above the daily background hiss/whine is fine Discrete audio would be fairly pointless for me. Hell 128k mp3 sound fine for me....

as for USB3, I have a USB3 external drive that I automatically backup onto and it does backup a lot faster than USB2. In fact it restores slower (as I haven't baked the usb3 drivers into my W7 bartPE yet so im stuck with USB2 restores)

the irony is, this could work against them. If the original case does get dismissed then all the evidence with it goes.
