They're seriously changing thieves? I'm actually planning on a thief as my main and an elementalist as an alt. Really dug the thief class.

There was a lot of developer commentary on the beta forums about how skills across all classes were still going to get another heavy tuning pass before release. ArenaNet has a history of constantly fine-tuning the game over time too, though being that this is a conversation in a Diablo thread, I should point out that they are gradual, thought out changes for the better.

GW2 BWE pretty much sealed the deal for me as well.

Are there any plans to form a Blues guild?

I'm up for it. You can belong to multiple guilds too. I believe the only thing that your home world directly impacts is participation in World vs World PvP, though I'm looking for more information on that right now.

I really enjoyed D3 when it was first released. I wasn't one of the ones bickering about the online DRM. However, I quickly hit a ceiling in Act1 of Inferno that would require me to switch from casually playing the game and farming items to intensely playing the game and farming items just to progress. While the gameplay is certainly fun, constant farming (with little to no forward movement) with nothing else to do in the game world becomes very boring.

I'm in the same camp. Instead of playing the game, you'd end up spending more time in the AH. The story and writing felt weak to me, the 'randomized' maps don't even deserve the term, and the loot is not inspired at all. There are a lot of other minor flaws, but others have detailed them better than I can.

I picked up the CE, and I've put over 200 hours into D3, so I certainly got my money's worth. It's just that D3 ends up being more of a one-off game than one you return to month after month. For that, I suggest Guild Wars 2.

...sorry, I couldn't resist. The last BWE was a blast.

Is anyone else worried that reading the lists people are posting will result in a "Oh, I wanted that one too!" moment?

Valve, protip:
It helps if your webpage is actually working and ya know, displays PRICING INFO on my wishlist!

Mine did that too. Just refresh a few times. The indie packs would also occasionally tell me they were unavailable in my region.

My turn.

SpacChem DLC
Crusader Kings 2 + DLC
Warlock: Master of the Arcane + DLC
Saints Row: The Third + DLC
Sanctum DLC
Trine 2
Binding of Isaac DLC
Alan Wake + DLC
Frozen Synapse DLC
Dead Island + DLC
The Witcher 2
Civilization V Gods and Kinds DLC + Korea DLC
Batman Bundle
Serious Sam 3
Fallout: New Vegas DLC (just a few that I was missing)
Nexuiz + DLC
Hard Reset: Extended Edition

Total: $178.46

I only spent another $12 after cutting myself off last Sunday, which isn't bad. Now, the total damage is a bit more, ah, impressive. Of course, now that I own almost every game I had an interest in, I should have nothing to fear from the winter sale. *crosses fingers*

Edit: Is it bad that when I looked over my post, I was surprised to find that I'd purchased Dead Island? I had just been eyeing the flash sale too...

Anybody play Bulletstorm? I know it's EA, and I've heard it was underwhelming but I've wondered if it'd be worth $5...

In my opinion it's worth a playthrough. I had fun with it.

I agree. If you do pick it up, this thread should help you tweak it so that it plays better.

I had to break my self-imposed ban on further purchases--Nexuiz was just too tempting, even if the purchase was entirely based off of Quake/UT nostalgia.

BF3 was (is?) a great game, but they definitely made some mistakes.

  • VoIP. The lack of in-game voice, especially at squad level, is damn near criminal.

  • Punkbuster. We need a better solution

  • 'Premium' DLC. Quit making a grab for my wallet, it's annoying and sickening.

  • Map design. Metro should never have existed, and several other maps have modes crammed into them that just don't work, such as Conquest Damavand Peak.


  • I could go on, but I'm getting angry.

    Hahahahaha...just one more hit and I swear I'm done. :)

    Ok, I may have needed the rest of the Fallout: NV DLC, but that doesn't count as a full game.

    Thanks for reminding me what a FRACKING PAIN that gfwl is.
    Thanks MS for rededicating yourself to us PC gamers a year or so ago. We've got so much to show us how much you love us.

    I decided to play through Arkham Asylum again before diving into Arkham City, and I thought I was going to have to break something by the time I was done messing with GFWL.

    I haven't sat down and listed everything, nor figured out the damage. Lets see what we have:

    SpacChem DLC
    Crusader Kings 2 + DLC
    Warlock: Master of the Arcane + DLC
    Saints Row: The Third + DLC
    Sanctum DLC
    Trine 2
    Binding of Isaac DLC
    Alan Wake + DLC
    Frozen Synapse DLC
    Dead Island + DLC
    The Witcher 2
    Civilization V Gods and Kinds DLC + Korea DLC
    Batman Bundle
    Serious Sam 3

    Total: $167.01.

    Stunned Sweet baby Freeman. I'm officially cutting myself off, with the exception of Hard Reset. I've gotten everything I wanted, and my Steam backlog is so long now I'd need a year off just to catch up.

    Me as well. And honestly? I wouldn't be surprised if we see it cheaper before the sale is over. But I'd rather lock it in now at a semi low price than to wait and risk it not happening.

    I've been wondering about that--do the flash and user choice sales have different discounts from the daily deals? Based on what I've seen, it looks like they stay the same and just have a chance of appearing more often.

    As a general rule, if I'm even interested and it's under $5 I buy it. Anything over $5 has to be something I want--for instance, Rayman Origins is $15 right now. I'm interested, but not enough to bite at that price.

    For games I own, I do the obligatory DLC check and pick up the extra content.

    Then I wonder if games can go lower. Hard Reset, which is high on my list, is 75% off right now. It's $3.75. Is it really going to get an even greater discount? I'll wait, but damn, even at that price nobody should pass on it.

    I just think of all the games I already own and haven't finished yet.

    There's always lulls in the gaming world. There's not much due out in the next year that I'm interested in, so I'll have plenty of time to catch up (if Guild Wars 2 doesn't swallow me whole, that is).

    FYI - looks like 3 different sales going on at once. You will want to check in every 6-8 hours. They are doing constant quick deals, voting sales, and the daily stuff, on top of group sales. So watch closely.

    My workplace shuts down for a week every July, and shutdown just happens to be next week--happily coinciding with the Sale and these new flash sales. This is going to be great.

    July 12-22. I should really just avoid Steam for the next 10 days.

    Ah hell, who am I kidding. Time to go shopping!

    The worst thing you can do is give a date you are not sure you can make, if you've ever seen any threads on the steam forums on the release day of a new game you'll know how crazy people get when their game is two minutes late.

    I believe the creation, and acceptance, of 'Valve Time' is precisely why they never gives dates anymore. I can't blame them for that.

    We can, however, blame them for the large body of evidence that led to the creation of the previously mentioned time translation matrix.
