not to be too divisive, but i'm pretty sure the answer isn't that simple. what almost nobody (even intelligent people like yourself) realizes is that american politics are unique in the world. nobody else has to manage the well being of 300,000,000 people with a balance of free-market and wealth redistribution in such a way that pisses nobody off. of course it can't be done, because there's no way to please 300 million people at once, but on the whole i think we've done a reasonable job of it. it's an imperfect system, but i have serious doubts about anyone that claims to know the answers.

the europeans are getting a savory taste of the difficulties of it with their half-hearted Union, and they're fucking it up far worse than we are despite their (inferior) superiority complex.

And Diablo original?
Yep. Diablo was original. First time someone combined a rogue type game with real time fights thus creating the action RPG or Hack 'n Slash.

Warcraft was one the first RTS. Blizzard and Westwood, fighting for the top in this very new genre.


I don't know if a graphical real time version of nethack was particularly original or not. Shifting the focus to lootfest was probably the most original aspect of Diablo.

Warcraft came after Dune 2, and had two innovations over Dune 2: a much better UI (especially mouse commands) and more than one resource type.

i dunno if it was the first, but diablo was the best pure action rpg. up until then everything was turn based, stat based crawls. in that sense it was innovative - taking the slog out and hammering home the action.

as for this game, a little too tf2 derivative to me. and if it's truly skill based, the nubs (most of their fanbase) aren't gonna last long cuz it won't be fun be pwned by long time fps veterans.

Well, send that video to someone who can sharpen it up a bit, get the license plate, and have that piece of shit arrested for attempted murder.

That video is unreal. Over a parking spot, what an ape.

thirdhand, but apparently the suv driver punched out the window of the little car with the wife and baby in the back seat. i can see why the dude would get mad, but man, attempted vehicular assault is never the answer. unless you're mad max; then it's coo.

Your better off barfing non stop and flushing 1000 dollars down the toilet with a bucket strapped to your head then buying a VR set.

Really bad analogy, no you wouldn't.

don't respond to that guy, he's just a useless troll. i'm pretty sure he doesn't actually believe anything he says, just trying to piss people off.

i honestly think the lack of healing spells/limited potions is from a demons/dark souls influence... challenging rpgs are in fashion currently, which is good - shit back in the day they were fucking brutal

That could very well be. Like I said, I like their design thought behind it, and the game looked properly difficult in several of their twitch streams. (Their lead dev wiped several times in a dungeon, for example.)

i haven't gotten my key yet either. i'll let you know when i do. it's worth the money if you can find one of gmg's many discount codes though. i paid $46 bux total.

ok is it just me or has this whole debate devolved squarely into firstworldproblems nonsense? i'm all for journalistic integrity, but it's pretty clear the trolls have won (on both sides) and it's only about bickering now.

I can live without Google as well but most people won't touch a phone without Googleplay. To me that was a bigger detriment than the price.

mainly it was this. i was very interested in the technology of the phone, but everyone is so invested in their platforms, requiring them to switch and abandon all their purchases is basically a non-starter.

i have no inherent beef with the practice; what gets my goat is that the base game is nowhere near finished. what we paid for was NOT a full AAA game experience, and yet they started working on the DLC years ago. that's a fact - there are clips of areas from dev previews from 2013 that are not in the game currently, and it's almost certain they hadn't decided at the time what was and wasn't DLC. hence, they cut content from an already unfinished game to gouge us for more cash later. that's just unabashed greed and people are being willfully ignorant if they can't see that.

i and a lot of others are boycotting the DLC in hopes that they get the message and release free content to at least flesh out the base game experience. otherwise there's no chance in hell this game will last 10 years.

Strange, I think in the 40-50 hours I played DA2, it crashed on me maybe once or twice.

I agree with the endless waves of boring shit. It drove me insane my first playthrough, so for my second one I just set difficulty to normal and brought three mages. Firestorms and Ice storms and lightning storms all over the place tend to kill shit in a hurry.

But yeah, I don't want that kind of combat anymore. To be fair, from the twitch streams and videos I've seen of DA:I, it does NOT in any way look like that.

already bought it on gmg for like $40 bucks. you know you're gonna buy it anyway, might as well get the preload out of the way. unless you plan on going... other routes.

man fuck the giants. probably the worst team to win the world series ever. i'm pretty sure if they played a 7 game series against every other world series winning team, they'd lose every single one. just rode some ridiculous luck and out-of-their-mind hot streaks to another title. i cannot believe every team they played couldn't bash the living shit out of hudson/vogelsong/whoever else. the NL west beat the stuffing out of those guys. bumgarner is legit, but they should've been hammered when he wasn't pitching.

i think DC is stronger than people realize. they have the two greatest IPs in comics - batman and superman. and if they do the movies right - with all the realism and psychological depth that nolan put into it, they can be far superior to the hokey mess that marvel's been putting out.
