As one who has read the books first, I can say the value of the show is in no way lessened. Apart from them not having the budget to do the rare actual battles any justice, it's just as entertaining, if not more so.

If you don't care about money...

Sennheiser

Or a slightly less expensive older model...

That's for uncompromising quality from both the phones and the mic.

For something that's good enough, and fairly comfortable with glasses (very cushy pads), there's some stuff from Logitech

Personally I've had Sennheiser PC350 for years and they don't bother me when I deign to don my spectacles at the computer. Just make sure you get something with really fluffy circumaural earpads.

There's already way too much XP. Playing through from start to finish on Hard (which let's be honest is really Normal) netted me fifty seven levels. It should actually be an accomplishment getting that far.

The game may very well be better than it was but as a religious Diablo II player I still find DIII fundamentally and irreparably flawed.

it's not as tight, it's faster, there's far more gotcha moment encounters designed to kill the player and it doesn't favor the methodical defensive approach that the other games had by instead preferring a fast-paced survival horror vibe.

I'm about 20 hours in and I find the exact opposite to be true. Melee combat is more substantial than ever: weapons are better balanced and handle more distinctly, and shields aren't able to instantly block after having delivered an attack. There are a ton more enemies that cannot be backstabbed, and even those than can seldom give the opportunity.

Another plus, I've avoided covenants and have managed to only be invaded twice, and those were in PVP-specific areas, while I've been consistently summoned almost immediately after soapstoning. Many of the bosses (and christ there are a lot of them now) are practically begging for more than one player.

The game looks fine. It has little to no aliasing (and I sit four feet from my 40" TV), and thank god has little to no frame rate issues.

I was listening to the DLC podcast last night, and they said that Loot 2.0 makes D3 into D2. Would you go that far?

That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard. Diablo 3 isn't even in the same galaxy as Diablo 2. Is it fun, sure: as a standalone game with no relationship beyond cosmetic to its namesake.

The Last of Us is easily the most overrated game I've ever seen. I'm just not sure what people see in it

It's cinematic. Cinematic games are critically acclaimed because they "elevate" games beyond disposable entertainment.

And giving an "artistic achievement" award to anything but Puppeteer is a fucking farce.

I'm not a big fan of Diablo 3 being an online only game (as it's roots are SP w/ optional coop), BUT, Battle.NET is selling it currently for $19.99 (PC & MAC).

Gamestop and Amazon and Newegg just had it for $20. Blizzard's own store is well and truly late to the party.

Yea, they call these Exclusives. I think even the PS4 got some of those

Yeah, games made by or produced by Sony.

33. Re: Dark Souls II PC Specs Mar 8, 2014, 08:32 PHJF
 
As far as I can tell Logitech took a hit in quality in the past few years. I have a late model G5 (which admittedly I've been using for a long time) suffering from the poor cord connection that apparently plagues many of their corded mice. The mousewheel has lost a lot of tactility, one of the sensitivity change buttons has always been poor to respond, and I hate that it doesn't store DPI setting onboard. Real comfortable, though. Their keyboard selection has been lackluster and they haven't released a worthwhile set of speakers in ages; Z5500 was the crown jewel of PC-specific speakers and they never followed it up.

I've been looking toward finally getting a new mouse and have been eyeballing Cooler Master stuff. Couldn't be happier with the CM keyboard I've been using, and their peripherals tend to be a bit cheaper than the competition.

Is there anything new in this game besides a different location and different enemies?

That's enough for most people. And this is a last-gen game.

I am going to spend my time basically doing nothing but invasions, best part of the souls games.

Think you confused "best" with "worst". Artorias added the little arena for people with interest in it. The few times I *had* to go human for red phantom NPCs I still managed to get fucking player invaded in the process.
