News Comments > Diablo III 2.1.0 "Right Around the Corner"

RNG finally gave up the RoRG for me the other day. Got an "okay" roll. It helped, made switching out some set pieces make sense, my wizard can do T3 rifts now. Just a couple of more pieces and I might be able to get up to T5...

You know I have assumed all the Transformer movies were bad, but seeing that honest trailer makes me realize I was giving them far too much credit.

Interesting, I'd heard that quote attributed to Einstein before and thought it was odd because I thought Einstein preferred the idea of a static universe. Looking around it appears someone named Frederick S. Perls wrote a book and attributed the quote to Einstein. In a previous book he attributed a slightly different version of the quote to "a great astronomer." Whether or not Einstein said it appears to be in dispute.

I wonder how much you could have made betting the Spurs to win 4-1 before the finals started? I'm guessing a fair amount...

Thanks, but not all of us are fathers like me even though I am an old fart.
Reminds me of something someone I knew in the USAF would say if you asked him if he had kids, "Hell! If you throw a stone in any playground in Missouri and you'll probably hit one of my kids."

As someone who works in the field I tend to keep an eye the IPv4/Ipv6 situation. Although I completely understand the need to move to IPv6, I am not looking forward to it. I type IPv4 addresses multiple times each day doing my job, having that be IPv6 addresses instead is going to be a painful change.

In this thread, everyone finally figured out that games designed around grinding the "end game" content are fucking stupid.
There is a game that isn't like that? Hell, even SimCity and Minecraft have "end game" aspects to them. It is simply the nature of things. Sure, it's more so in some games than others, but in the end it is all like that.

Patents are so utterly broken it is ridiculous. The music union thing has to be about the union getting it's piece of the pie. Another great example of a few idiots providing additional ammunition for the anti-union lobby.

I wonder if those customers are allowed to switch to using their own cable modem and router (as I do with Comcast). It seems to me the only way this can be working is if all those customers are using Comcast devices in their homes.

Yeah, it was nice to get myself some Reaper's Wraps, the other mats aren't much of a concern -- the limiting factor for all my legendary and set crafted items was the number of Forgotten Souls those and the Death's Breaths are the only ones I don't have thousands of..

I realize it's the Internet, but trust me -- direct theft. They didn't even bother changing most of the spell names.

Too bad that Sir-Tech stole Wizardry almost directly from "oubliette" on the University of Illinois PLATO computer system.

I was a part of a server like this, and it was a good experience all told. Granted, I was one who paid for the highest package,
Okay, I gotta ask then -- what did you get for your money over someone on the same server who didn't pay? A cache of diamond tools?

Is it just me or does $1.2 B in financing for Uber make $45 M in donations to Star Citizen look like the wisest investment in the last century?

I was just in a similar situation, but didn't want to spend the money on a Warthog.
Someone, Spectral maybe? Recommended this as a lower cost alternative:

Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick
