For fucks sake I'm starting to seriously get pissed. This piece of shit Amana fridge/freezer has killed the freezer's fan motor four times. Less than six months ago the repair guy was out to replace it, and this morning, lo and behold, the fan is locked up and the fridge is defrosting.

Heard that, except mine is an LG. A week to the day the 3 year warranty comes up and BAM the controller board dies. Part? $350 + labour (guy comes by and pops it in) $50. The goddamned fridge was $800. Needless to say I shot off LG a letter how I'll never be buying any home appliances from them ever again and warning everyone else off them too.

I like LG's computer screens.

Activision-Blizzard only makes kiddie console crap.

I hate to burst your bubble but video games are made mostly for kids. Just saying...

Pacman , Frogger, Tempest, Poleposition may have been made for kids like me back then, but I vow to play videogames until the day I die

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I think if William Shakespeare were alive today he'd probably be avid gamer. I think he would dig Donkey Kong.

If you truly believe that, then you are clueless. Or a kid. Same difference, really.

According to the ESA Essential Facts: Computer and Video Game Industry on page 2 "the average game player age is 34". I stand corrected then.

That is an odd comment...based on diablo and diablo 2 I don't see a lot of crossover. Did torchlight suck players away from WoW?

Torchlight wasn't made by Blizzard. People are loyal to brands. It's like that line in Tommy Boy: Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside. I know there are people who buy nothing but Madden or Final Fantasy games because that is what they are loyal to.

You are correct in stating that Torchlight wasn't made by Blizzard, but it was made by the same guys who made Diablo and Diablo II and the LOD expansion, Max and Eric Shaefer. Who were working on Diablo III when Blizzard closed the studio. So they went and formed Flagship with Bill Roper and made the FPS Diablo clone Hellgate London. Well after that tanked, they went and formed Runic, who made the Diablo clone Torchlight. They finally got it right by going back to their old formula.

You and I know that and I suspect anyone that visits Blue's News knows that. But in all honesty how many others know that? You throw out names like Max and Eric Shaefer, and Bill Roper. How many gamers really know those names? All they know is Blizzard and if they see a game with the Blizzard logo they will buy it. Runic Games isn't Blizzard as far as they're concerned. Of course after they buy Torchlight and discover the similarities they may investigate and discover the company was founded by Blizzard alumni.

Right. But if the games really aren't very similar, why would players jump?

Boredom with WOW. Sick of the same old, same old. Tired of Ghostcrawlers constant tweaks. Constant retcons. Weird story telling. Lots of "jump the shark" stuff.

Creston wrote on Mar 21, 2011, 11:51:
At most, I'd expect people to play Diablo 3 AND to keep playing WoW. The only way people would dump WoW for Diablo 3 is if Diablo 3 is an improved version of WoW. Right?

You suggest that only people who like WOW would play Diablo 3. I say gamers aren't afraid to cross genres. You have gamers that will play StarCraft 2, then play Fallout: New Vegas, then switch over to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, then back to WOW, and they might sneak in an occasional Sins of the Solar Empire every now and then.

I don't know if anyone knew this but one of the top stories on Google News is The Hobbit starts filming today with Peter Jackson directing. I couldn't imagine a more perfect director than him leading this project. Thumbsup

PS Peter lost a lot of weight.

So... Diablo III is just going to be an offline version of Wow then, or something?

Is WoW really that similar to Diablo? :|

No. From what I gather what they mean to say is Diablo 3 is going to pull a lot of players away from WOW before many WOW players jump over to Titan. They acknowledge this possibility and say they would rather one of their games do this than another company's game. It begs a question though? With games like Asheron's Call and EverQuest still kicking what is the half-life of WOW if 50% of the subscriber base leaves for Diablo 3 and eventually Titan? Even at 50% that's still 6M subscribers. Way more than most.
