Albion Prelude is pretty good, I thought, as long as your favorite part of the game is the sandbox gameplay. If you prefer plots and so, Terran Conflict still is the best option.

Looking forward to Rebirth too, but the lack of updates is disheartening. I hope we have more news soon enough.

Nothing. Just look at the first commenter's username and you'll understand what's wrong.

I was going to make a point about how GW does things, but passed on it... But since you mention it...

GW has content 'patches' very often... sometimes multiple times a day... It definitely works well for the way they have things organized, and I don't think players complain 'too much' about the multiple restarts required at times...

However, this is an early design type of thing... So late in the development stage, it's a pain to fix, and we're very long past that stage... Blizzard could change it; they've made early design style changes in the past, but from a cost-benefit rating, I'd say it's pretty damn low.

My point is exactly that - if ArenaNet is able to do it, then it's technically possible/viable, and if Blizzard doesn't do the same, it's because they chose not to. And while the current design may make it difficult to fix, I don't think cost-benefit is that much of an issue for a company that sold 6.5 million copies of Diablo 3 (priced at $60 at launch almost everywhere) in the first two weeks of release.

In fact, I'd argue that the "always online" requirement makes that kind of fix easier than harder, but that's beyond the point. The thing is that that kind of thing is sloppy fixing (and arguably design), and shows a notable lack of care for the customer. That's troubling to say the least.

You always sounded like a Madonna fan to me, so that comment makes sense. Sort of. I guess.

Lots of complaints specifically regarding tool-tips not being changed yet. I continue to be surprised by things I see around the internet.

That's a big deal. First, because it's confusing. Second, because if ArenaNet updates tooltips every time a skill changes, then Blizzard should be able to do the same.

Blizzard's MMORPG sequel
Diablo 3 is an ARPG, not an MMO. There is no persisted world. The most players that can play together at once is 4.

I think that Blue is using the other definition: "Money Made Off Really Pissed Gamers".

+ 1 for you, Raven. That was gold.

Other websites, like Eurogamer and Examiner.com, are reporting similar issues.

So, it looks like a real issue for me, not something that happened only to "shady" people. Comments?

What I'm more curious about is the screenshots... apparently Diablo went on a diet or something for the past 20 years. His limbs are very thin and such, almost looks like a female demon.

I've heard people giving explanations for that, and it's WAY into spoiler territory. Not sure if any of it is true, though, as I was actively trying to avoid spoilers at the time, but still.

hari seldon would know what to do, but i'm sure nobody would listen if he existed in our timespace.

The guy mentions Hari Seldon (from Asimov's "Foundation" series) and no one notices? What has this world come to?

Well done, sir, well done.

If they do an editor and release more dungeons, that should help with that Since its successful I'm sure they will, they already have the functionality in place to have different dungeons.

They already confirmed they're working on a level editor:

Ok, I gotta ask. And this is coming from someone who always reverses mouselook (aka vert)...


Some people think like camera operators using old film cameras. Think about it.

Looks like a company gettin' shit done. Unlike EA, or Blizzard which can take 6-12 months, or 5 years to implement suggestions/improvements/fixes.

I guess this game was either programmed very well, or the programmers are being honest about their time.

I think it was generally programmed well (despite obvious oversights like forgetting to limit framerates on "light" gamestates like menus and the like), and I think the programmers are quite honest indeed about their time (just check their dev blog), but I'd say the most important factor would be the complexity of the code itself, which, in this case, should be relatively low. It's a very simple game/engine, which helps a lot in debugging and bug fixing.

Did you just call me an imbecile? Well played, sir.

I mean the kid's father in the game (or his spymaster). I thought you were talking about the game???

Here's hoping it isn't "Dead Space in New York" or any setting on Earth.

Take this back to a spaceship like the first, Event Horizon style.

Waiting anxiously for the marketing shots that feature Isaac with a bow


Verno, you just won a whole Internet. And you owe me a new keyboard.

Dmitri... please, don't ever mention Event Horizon again. Please.
