News Comments > Diablo III Asia Downtime to Remove Duped Items

I really don't understand what they're trying to do with this game, aside from making assloads of money. Maybe that's the only point to the whole thing?
Thats the whole thing of every game published. To make the devs and/or investors money. Which isn't a bad thing per se.

But there are different levels of making money. You can pursue a fair trade, where everyone profits or you are just greedy, fucking everyone left and right in the pursuit of making as much money as humanly possible. Guess, what strategy Blizzard is apparently following with Diablo 3 ...

... but I know there is much room for improvement both from Blizzard and with the game and I think that will start with 1.03.
Ahhh, the magical patch that will fix EVERYTHING!
Last time i heard that, it came from desperate Hellgate-London fans

You cannot fault Blizzard for this move.
But for NOT MENTIONING IT BEFORE THE RELEASE!

On the other hand F2P games are also good for people who do not have much time to play.
Sure. But the company does not need people like you. It needs customers to make money. Which is only possible with people who spend money.

Morally corrupt business model.
It is. F2P is a scam. To be profitable, the game has to trick you, lure you into spending money. Its completely intransparent, how much money this game will cost you. This business model feeds on weak minded gamers. Yes, its morally corrupt.

And therefore fits to Crytek like a glove!

Where is this end, thou speakest of? WoW is still not only the biggest MMO, it is still THE biggest MMO. Other companies are glad they would have those numbers WoW lost as paying customers. And CoD sells like hotcakes with no sign of diminishing revenue.

THEY caused their company to default by spending money stupidly and expecting huge sales on a title no one cared about, released in the same window as the kingpin of the genre.
To be precise ... they sold the SP game project for 35 mio. to EA, all revenue from KoA went to EA, nothing went to 38 Studios. They wasted this money on their MMO project, still years away from releasing it. They made some very bad management and investment descisions. And yes, it's ALL THEIR fault.

A rushed, console port with no PC advantages...who would want that?

Well in this case it's the only chance somebody without a PS3 is going to have to play the game. Have you never used an emulator to play a game for a system you don't own? I've experienced plenty of games that way.
Sure. But why would someone buy (!) a rushed console port with no PC advantages for full retail price? This seems to be a candidate for future Steam sale around five bucks or less. Or to download the warez version just for 30 minutes of "experience".

But at least the devs were honest. I appreciate that. Isnt' very common in this business.

I hate to sound crass, but if it isn't by People Can Fly no one gives a damn.
The Painkiller franchise was burned and wasted with too many horrible, cheaply produced "addon" crap.

Thats the beauty of gaming these days, no you dont!
You have to ... if you want the money from the masses.

Basically if you have a good marketing campaign with some good CGI and the full weight of a Star Wars licence behind you you can sell 1 million pre-orders without breaking a sweat! Its paradoxical, but it also happens to be true. Why do you think so many developers get away with basically taking a huge fucking dump in a retail box and still make a buck??? It can also work the other way around, making a good game, selling it to break even and then letting the game's quality do all the marketing work for you.
I couldn't agree more But top managers of major publishers, especially managers at LucasArts, don't think that way because they are not forced to do so. Business still works that classical Triple A retail way.

This x 1000. ATI's driver support has been terrible as of late.
As of late? This seems permanent. Three years ago i really wanted to have an ATI card after NVidia shafted me with their product policy regarding mainboards. And because ATI cards are WAY better hardware.

After a month of trying out several driver versions i was forced to trade my ATI card in for a NVidia card, to get my games in working order again. ATI makes excellent hardware, i still want to have one. But their drivers are crap, utter crap compared to Nvidia. There i have only minor issues with for example aspect ratio settings in some releases. But all games work perfectly as they should. No graphical errors at all, no startup problems.

I beg to differ, everyone and their mother has heard of Tie Fighter by now.
There is a difference between "has heard of" and "wants to play". I have heard many things of Zynga games like Farmville, but boy, do i have no interest in playing this kind of game at all.

That said ... to get the money of LucasArts newest target group, you have to rape and twist Tie Fighter into a simple action-arcade game.

Why is it the games we want most are the games no one wants to make?!
Because "we" are not enough. "We" are too small a group for a publisher like LucasArts who wants to sell bazillions of games to the biggest target group. Which isn't "us".

Loved 1 & 2 -- 3 was disappointing enough that I didn't get the expansion. I'll think about it...

There was an expansion? lol really?

edit: ah yes, look at that. Completely missed that or don't care enough to remember.
Try it. The addon is way better than the main game. Better gameplay flow. Less boring and predictable "horror" moments, better timing and scripting.

I could be way off base here, but my personal observation/opinion, for whatever that is worth, is that Tim Willits is the major problem with idís lack of creativity and ingenuity.
Why him? Because he is (was) just a good level designer without the proper talent for producing/directing (!) games people expect from id Software?

Hmmm, you might be right ...

Also: if that was the case every copy of D3 would stop working the minute Blizzard decided to drop support for D3 (e.g. because they go out of business for what reason ever). No data-streaming server, no game! So cool!
Blizzard has no interest in culture or society. They dont care if you can play D3 in 20 years or not. They make D3 to make millions of bucks NOW. They make games for people who see in games nothing more than a short distraction from every day life.

Which is ok. I find it very amusing that these kind if games will vanish from history. Nobody will talk about D3 in 20, 30 years. They will talk about Diablo 1 or 2. They will talk about other Diablo clones. But D3 will be forgotten, only known to some experts in gaming history.
