So which part of my post, or any post recently, was me being a dick to you (or anyone else)

Yeah, your a dick dude, no way around it.

Calling people "morons" for wanting what IS a SP OFFLINE game with optional COOP to actually have a SP OFFLINE mode? "Being a dick".

No, I just called you a moron in a previous thread for calling me out in a thread I hadn't even posted in, when you suggested I'd have a problem with other games being online only. Which is just pure stupidity on your part, as I said, I have played online only games for 10+ years and I don't bitch about it.

If you really want to go back a year and a half on the topic, I may have said something along those lines, but it was probably closer to the idea of not playing a game out of spite because it's online only being moronic, when the same people use online only services and play many other online only games. Time to grow up a little and get over it.

It's really simple. If you are a dick to me, expect to be treated the same in return. Reality is, I have most of the dicks around here ignored so I don't need to read their crap.

Someone going out of their way to be antagonistic towards me when nothing I said warranted it, is pure immaturity, aka: Troll.

I'm not really even sure what the iFruit app is and whether or not I want it on my phone. The description is just random bullshit. What would make sense, and would be pretty cool, is if it linked to your game and performed all of the functions of your in-game smartphone on your real smartphone. I don't think it does that though.

So... gimmick, I guess. Could have been a neat little immersion enhancement.

Gimmick for sure. But while watching tv if I can customize cars (not something I generally spent my game time doing), get Chop to listen to commands better, etc, I don't mind playing along. As it is, it's useless because it doesn't work.

Currently, I can't even take photos in-game and upload them to the Social Club, as it always fails to upload. It doesn't seem to save them in-game, so they can't be saved and uploaded later. It's a failure in design in what is a superbly designed game.

So which part of my post, or any post recently, was me being a dick to you (or anyone else) that caused you to make antagonizing posts like the one you just made? I hardly post any more, because of childish retorts like yours from people that think they know what they are talking about.

I had actually taken you off ignore, as you hadn't been a fucking loser as of late and had stopped attacking my posts (when they had nothing to do with you). But clearly you couldn't refrain from acting like a little bitch for long.

If the iFruit app would log in, it might be somewhat useful. Logged in once yesterday for about 5 minutes before being disconnected. Have not been able to log in since (even in the middle of the night).

It keeps saying it "Failed to check the app version" or "Failed to link to account info", something like that.

What's your problem Verno? Or could you just not help but be a dick today?

I seem to recall that you openly bragged about using the RMAH to make more than enough money after launch to pay for the game. Yet here you are running your mouth.

I sold a few things on the RMAH near launch, spent that money I made, rather than cash out and haven't used it since. It was pointless, to me. I do still use the AH and will continue to do so until it closes. I've barely played the game in months, but I still log in every 1 to 3 days to collect gold and post gear for sale.

Back in May I looted a Skorn weapon that I sold for 1.275 billion gold, which I would never have been able to do without the GAH and would have never used it myself. With the implementation of Account Bound items after Enchanting (I believe that's how it's going to work), getting rid of the GAH seems pointless. As I already said, they will need to implement "something" if they intend to get rid of the AH altogether.

I have mixed feelings on this. They could have just got rid of the RMAH to start and left the GAH. They still would need to do something to give players a reason to get rid of old worthless loot instead of flooding the AH with crap or valueless items. ie: combining 3 old Rares to make 1 new item from Loot 2.0.

This is only going to drive some people to third party sites, which takes us back to the same problems that Diablo 2 had.

They will need to do "something" to allow players easy ways to sell/trade their gear that isn't based on a chat room.

What happens if my Library is being shared (and in use) and I log in via the website or the mobile app? Will friends get booted then too? can I contact them via Steam message somehow to tell them I am logging in, save your game, etc?

I can see this being handy with a few longtime freinds on Steam, especially when some of us are working opposite hours, or just away from Steam for long periods, so a friend can play a game that I own or vice versa... (without sharing passwords).

What % of PC players are offline when they want to play a title like D3? REALLY?
You do realize someone got fired from Microsoft for this opinion, right? Not everyone lives in an urban area where getting broadband is like getting electricity. Besides your entire argument is moot because they made the console version be off-line. If there wasn't a market for that why make it?

Difference is one was regarding an entire platform and this is regarding a single game. If you dont like it, dont play the game. I've been playing online only games for 10+ years and will continue to do so. If I dont have internet at any given time, I will play something else and I won't rage about it, unlike what Undocumented Moron thinks.

If MS or Sony or whomever attempts to make an entire platform permanently online required, I will have a problem with it. If my computer, iPhone, PS3 or (newly acquired) Vita were online only, they would lose a lot of my business as an entire platform requiring Internet all the time would be a massive inconvenience.

D3 has great gameplay (even better in coop) and production value but falls short in story department, but unlike others, I never held the story in such high regard and just skip it all after the first play through anyways. I get bored quickly playing it solo, but can play for hours with other people. D3 has issues, which is no different than any other game I own. Many issues have been addressed over several patches in the past year + and many more are set to be addressed in the expansion and the continued patches.

Don't like the AH? Don't use it. It's that simple. It's not required and the difficulty in later He'll and Inferno hasn't been an issue since the first patch.

This is very exciting. Thanx to trading sites like 99gamers I've been purchasing digital game via steam and other means (humble bundle) and you can list them for trade but it's a little clumsy actually making the trade.

How exactly are you able to trade a game on Steam? It's activated under your account, and it can't be reactivated for someone else, right?

You can add games you purchase to your inventory and trade them.

Steam Trade Offers clearly states it's only available to friends. But they may expand this later. Meaning that no you will not get offers from random strangers. You can also already limit who can see your inventory to friends or friends of friends. So there is no reason for this to be a problem unless you are stupid and don't check your options.

Regarding MS XB180, Steam does not require you to be connect at least once every 24 hrs. Steam has an offline mode so you do not need to be online for long periods of time. To my understanding, only asking for you to go online if you have a net connection and it detects there is an update for your game. MS wanted to require a connection every 24 hrs regardless what you were doing...even playing a retail disc, single player game.

I like to take my PS3 to friends or family homes that do not always have wireless setup or a hard line available. MS's attempt at required online was, as already said, entirely self serving and did not benefit the user in any way.

And if you buy into the "cloud" advantages spoon fed by marketing, you are exactly the idiots MS was trying to sucker.

For those of us who never really played DK, I welcome a mobile version.

What I find entertaining about the "we hate anything that's not for the PC" crowd on bluesnews, is that it is highly unlikely that the devs who are porting DK to mobile devices are the same devs that would be used to create a sequel for the PC. Not to mention that a port is a much lower-hanging fruit than a sequel and will yield significant profit if done right. Game companies are businesses, you know.

a) It's not a port. It's a game made specifically for mobile. And from the sounds of it, it's a tower defence game with micro-transactions. b) I don't hate everything not PC. I play PS3 games and I play a few mobile games as well.

I will try DK mobile, but I don't expect it to be very good. I've been waiting for DK3 since they teased it on the DK2 disc. EA has come straight out and said they have no plans for a new DK, then they come out with this. They licensed the IP to some Chinese company to make Dungeon Keeper Online and they have given their blessing to http://steamcommunity.com/app/230190 basically copy DK for their game.

What I want...is a proper PC sequel to DK2, that uses the real characters and names...not a mobile game.

Verno wrote on Aug 22, 2013, 08:39:
This is revisionist history, the usual "wahhhh Blues" stuff. Most of my play was in beta before it was even on Steam. People complained about the drop rate of heroes as much as anything else and peoples complaints with the game were related to gameplay more than heroes IMO. Frankly it just wasn't a very good game, the idea that "Blues" slagged it before playing for kicks is just silly. It's the internet, one or two idiots will always be stupid but I totally get why people were unimpressed with the game, it was average in every way.

No it really isn't. I looked up the launch thread, and it's very clear that the majority of people that were bashing it were doing so completely based on heresay and had never even played it. And yes a lot of the complaints were completely based on the pricing of the Heroes...to which I again point out they do not have to pay for. The game gives the player the choice of 5 or 6 Heroes to choose from right from the start and you get a 2nd character within 30min or so of playing the game. Most ARPGs only have 3-5 characters to choose from total. Marvel Heroes has 30+? Nobody needs them all, let alone half of them. They have since updated the game to add an in-game currency for purchasing Heroes instead of the random drops.

My entire argument in the launch thread was for people to give the game a whirl, for free, rather than base their idiotic opinions of the game entirely based on pricing they do not have to participate in. It's too bad some people are so narrow minded and obtuse to understand this.

Again, you can see on Steam who has and who hasn't played the game, so it's clear who is just talking out of their ass and regurgitating what others have said instead of thinking for themselves.

As I clearly stated, I found the game to be so-so (below average if you ask me), suffers from poor performance, a lot of lag and I have little interest in playing it through again. They have done a lot of patching recently and made lots of changes, so it may have improved and I may be willing to give it another go down the road. Free is the right price for me to do so.

Or ridiculously funny videos featuring groups entirely made of the same character.

Because every other ARPG has so many character options and never have groups with all the same class/character? Marvel Heroes problem with that is the Costumes remained the same for most of the game, therefore you didn't see a lot of visual variety unless someone paid for a Costume, or got lucky with a Costume drop.

What? I never said that I wanted a locked skill tree that I can't change... I was talking about the Hellgate London skill trees.

ItBurn wrote on Aug 21, 2013, 17:10:
If your build is not good enough or if you don't like it, you can start a new character, of the same class, and play it differently.

That is what I quoted, and that is what I was responding to.

As you describe it, that is not how Hellgate London works. I got 15min into Hellgate London and uninstalled that piece of shit. So if you want to talk specific games with specific skill trees, then do so by using their name. Just sounds like you are trying to twist your way out of the contradiction you made as the ability to respec in Hellgate London would not require you to "start a new character" which is exactly what you said is the skill tree style you prefer.

Edit: also, about your website, these aren't many different builds... It's basically the same build with one skill changed for another.

Only people that don't know what they are talking about say that. It's easy to see the base skills and say it's all the same with minor changes. There are 6 Runes per base skill and most of the Runes drastically change how the base skill works. So you can be using 4 of the same base skills with 4 Runes and that build will have a completely different play style than if you use the same 4 base skills and change each of their Runes. Start changing around the Passives and again it changes how builds play.

...he says while reading the minds of random internet people everywhere to bolster his own opinion.

Almost like there was a beta for a game that let people play it in advance and an early access period.

Any idiot can tell from the comments in the launch thread that the people trashing it had not even played it as they didn't know that Heroes dropped and were not just purchased. They weren't even willing to try playing the free game because they weren't willing to spend their ridiculous prices for all the Heroes, despite not having to at all.

Also doesn't take a genius to look at Steam and see who has and who has not played the game. Difficult concept for you to wrap your brain around I'm sure.

LOL seriously! I think I'm one of the only people on Blue's that really has no issues with Marvel Heroes and find it fun.

Most people on Blues have never even played Marvel Heroes. They were trashing it the day it was released without having played it themselves.

I played it through once as Hawkeye, with zero money spent. I have Scarlet and Thing that I can play as if I choose to play again in the future. The game was so-so and I'm glad I didn't have to pay to play. It had very poor performance, lots of lag and for the most part wasn't an enjoyable experience. They have done a lot of patching and made a lot of changes in the last few months. Some day I may give it another go, but I have so much more to play that is more worthy of my time.

Most people don't want to do that, nor do they have time to do that. If that's how D3 was, I (and just about everyone else I know) would not have played it beyond Normal difficulty (just as I didn't with D2). Instead I have all 5 classes at lvl 60 with varying levels of Paragon on each of them.

Hitting a wall in an ARPG where the build you have chosen ceases to be viable, sucks ass. Starting over with a new build that may run into the same problem 30 hours in, is not fun. If you enjoy that, there are several other ARPG options out there for you.

The irony is, you contradict yourself. You say don't want to use "one of X combos that work", but that's exactly what you are saying you want by preferring to use a locked skill tree that you cannot change, therefore you need to know exactly what "combos" you are going to be using up-front for the entire time you play that character.

The D3 method, I can play the same character from lvl 1 to 60 using a huge variety of skills, swap them around, change the Runes and experiment with different combos and I never need to look it up on a website to tell me if I'm wasting my time or not. I try it, and change it as needed.

I'm still forced to use the best skills instead of the skills I actually like.

Which is completely false and has always been.

Every class has multiple viable builds.
One look here http://diablo.somepage.com/popular/ proves this, as even the highest percentage is Barbarians (Whirlwind build) sitting at only 6%. Other classes have a lot more variety with builds than the Barbarians and that has more to do with the Barbarians other build options being not very fun to play.

It's too bad people are unimaginative and just use what everyone else tells them "is the best build" or people like you just spouting that there is only 1 good build without actually knowing what they are talking about. There are many YouTube vids out there with very experienced players showing off different builds. And if you actually play with other people, you can change your build(s) around to work very well together, even though they aren't considered the best 'solo' builds. But that requires some people to remove their head from their ass, which is often too much to ask.

I much prefer the D3 skill system over say T2 or PoE, which you pretty much have to know from the start what you are doing. D3 I've changed my skills around often as I levelled up, and still do at level 60 with all classes. I haven't played in awhile, but despite the games other shortcomings, the gameplay kicks the shit out of every other ARPG out there.
