1. You didnt have to group
2. Skills were on rings (ie the name signets etc) so 8 was it, and it was in no way limiting.
3. Its sad a game like Diablo which is another grinder buries news from a far more advanced title.

1. Yeah, you could group with Henchmen, but at points in the game the Henchmen were woefully underpowered and you basically had to group. If you couldn't find a group for one of those zones, you were screwed. Then if you did find a group, most of the time they were full of kiddies who'd intentionally botch the mission if you wouldn't give them one of your drops. Maybe they changed the Henchmen since last time I played.

2. Uh... signets were a type of skill you can choose, along with spells, etc. I don't think signets have anything to do with the limitation.

3. That's just like, your opinion, man.

It is not an experience for everyone. Background noise can block some of the quieter passages, and those who use the CD to rip files for an iPod will find that Mudcrutch sounds quieter than other bands.

That's why you load Rockbox onto your iPod and use ReplayGain.


Students now avoiding IT degrees, despite good job prospects

Maybe because we don't want to sit in front of a computer for 12+ hours a day doing what amounts to computerized menial work? Not to mention the lack of overtime pay, outsourcing, obsession with useless certs... All these reasons and more are why I switched majors from CS to a natural science.

Ditto, this is a very bad combination. Servers full of people wanting to play Pyro, and servers full of noobs. Don't even bother touching the game until next weekend.

Not just that, but IMO Valve went overboard with the Pyro buff. The damage dropoff was put in for a good reason, and removing it completely was just stupid. They should have just toned it down instead.

TF2 is painful to play right now... I'm not touching that until the Pyro-fest calms down.

I want to play this again, but one of my Diablo 2 CDs exploded in my drive back in the day. I guess I'll just wait for the Blizzard store download.

If I'm not mistaken, EVE Online had a bit of a rocky start and has now grown into a very large MMO.

You are mistaken. EVE is a tiny niche title.

Maybe if it starts getting glowing reviews and have a couple more episodes out, I'll give it another chance.

Of course it will get glowing reviews, it's Penny Arcade. They could slap their name on a pile of shit and gamers would eat it up.

I wonder how many innocent people will have their lives ruined just so the agencies can show that they used up their budget...

It's hard to take a list like this seriously when the site it appears on gets "its" wrong in the title banner.

And your resorting to vague Latin references against my argument

You think ad hominem is a vague Latin reference? Go to school, child.

You lived a truly sheltered life if you truly believe that, You said that statement just to project yourself higher than everyone else.

So basically you have no real counter to his argument, and you have to resort to ad hominem attacks and appeals to popularity.

Alright, well if you actually like to expend excess mental energy parsing Tycho's impervious prose, I can't argue with that. I just fail to see the entertainment value in it.

Also, my comment on Buttercup's logical capabilities was referring to his fallacious implication that I must be a poor reader.

For those of us who read above an eighth grade level, his writing is quite entertaining and enjoyable.

Tycho's writing style is unnecessarily dense. It's pure intellectual masturbation. Nerds are insecure with their intellects and need constant reassurance of their capabilities. Tycho's writing fits this niche quite well, but would likely fail any university-level English rhetoric course.

Just because I favor clear, understandable writing doesn't mean I'm a poor reader. For someone who claims to be well-read, you aren't showing much logical capability.

Oh boy, I can't wait to trod through Tycho's impenetrable, haughty writing while being bored to death by Gabe's predictable characters.

They just released an update which disabled the unlocking console command, but they also reset everyone's medic achievements. Lame. Oh well, I only had 4.
