So when LK was coming out... Arthas was a big figure... We knew he was the foozle (props to the oldies - CGW FTW)...

When Cata came out, Deathchin made a big presence, and we knew he was the foozle...

Now, sure, admittedly, I haven't followed Mists dev, but... Who the hell is the foozle?

I would get unepic but to me it's borderline plagarism. I hate the excuse of "homage", "tribute", and "reference", to me it sounds like a cheap, cop-out way of using someone else' work to include and use in your game. I mean easter eggs are one thing, but this is a direct rip off of castlevania.

How is it borderline plagarism? I don't understand that part.

Because of its game style? If so, then every FPS could be said to be a copy of Wolfenstein, many JRPG's would be copies of Dragon Quest, etc... Or is there something about it I'm missing? (never played it beyond the demo's first save point).

I'm with this guy... I haven't played the game, but the gameplay vid I just watched doesn't look anything like Castlevania to me, and I'm a HUGE fan of the (2D) series...

Which again, just in case one of them is watching... Make the next Castlevania using the Trine engine (or similar).

A link so nice, he posts it twice...

As an owner of an iMac... Meh... It's a required upgrade, which I'm going to be always bitter about, but I don't know what, if anything, it adds...

Oh god! The itch! It's back! Fuck!


heh...

I'm usually wary of Digital Deluxe versions, but this one has a D3 sigil, so I'm all over that...

Seriously though... I may partake, but it's hard to say... I imagine I would enjoy the new leveling content, and possibly the monk (which I'm sure will be crazy OP for the next 6 months)...

But my huge letdown with GW2 makes me wonder if that's mostly my waning interest in massives... Hard to say though, as I thoroughly enjoyed both Rift and SWTOR (for the short time that I played them).

Confirming game runs like crap on a 3930k and GTX680 as soon as you leave the tutorial. Turning off options yields no results. AVOID

Sounds like a poorly optimized, shitty console port at that.

Quoting a dumbass FTL...

I imagine, like many games, there are some H/W kinks to work out... Hopefully it gets fixed...

However, for me, and my 5+ hours played today... no issues... No noticeable rendering 'lag' or choppiness... I'm also running a 3840x1080 res (dual monitors), but playing on one, so the game is in 1920x1080.

i7-2700k, GT 560i 448...

I'm enjoying it : )

Some (obviously) changes from the first... some good, some not so good...

Has a similar feel, which is good, but power progression is more... structured... In the first, you just racked up points and picked which powers you want... In this one, powers are in categories... Some unlock with missions, others you get a point for, to choose one of ## available... And you have levels now, which give you points to put into 'stats' like health, regen, movement, etc...

As for being a console port, I don't feel it... But I also don't have as much issue with it as others, so who knows... I'm sure some people will find shit to bitch about ; )

Certainly no offense meant to Blue for posting the story, but I stopped reading at "giving his outlook on such litigation." I could care less what the defendant opines about the litigation he is facing, particularly when his strategy is outlined as "throw piles of money at making sure they don't get a cent." Personally, I'm more interested in whether this case has merit, and this story doesn't offer any illumination on that question.

"by or through making, using, offering for sale, selling and/or importing Android based applications for use on cellular phones and/or tablet devices that require communication with a server to perform a license check to prevent the unauthorized use of said application"

That seemed pretty clear to me... And while I wouldn't jump on the 'All software patents are evil' bandwagon, this kind of patent is annoying...

So while I think some software patents are valid (no, I don't have examples), I wouldn't mind the practice being abolished... And the money spent on tracking down plagiarism (of code) instead... Because I and millions of others have had original ideas that someone already thought of : )

In other news, the Guild Wars 2 beta is alright.

I may be pretty damned disappointed with the game, but their support (I'm assuming the other 99.999% of it is the same) was good... Processed my refund request in 3 minutes flat... No muss, no fuss...

This is fantastic... On the old days thet would release that unfinished class to E V E R Y O N E on a later PATCH. YES. A PATCH. NOT DLC. A PATCH.

Dont forget everyone who likes this game will get RAPED by PAID DLC. I will not make the same mistake with Borderlands 1. I will buy the game a year and a half later as a GOTY for 5 bucks with all DLC.

I'll never ever ever ever buy a game at launcha again. NEVER. PERIOD.

EDIT: Of course they announced on Twitter they just began making DLC!!!! Why not fixing the bugs that slipped through gold (of couse they game will have bugs, remember Borderlands 1? It still needs an external config tool made by people to improve the game) Of course they can make further changes to the game!!!!!!!!!!!!

EPIC RANT hahahahahaha Middlefinger

I also miss the old days when new content (not just fixes) came in patches... Companies of old, were so damn happy you bought their game, they wanted to keep you as a customer (even when they weren't getting much extra from it)...

As for being 'raped' by DLC... Not so much... DLC is optional (for me), so if I pick it up (and that's very likely - I enjoyed all the non-arena DLC for Borderlands), it'll be at $3 each, or less... Just like I did with Dead Island's Ryder White this last week... Which was worth $3, but not much more ; )

As for fixing bugs... I didn't really take 'being done' meaning that won't happen, though their wording sucks... And the lack of support for Borderlands sucks more... I don't need what the config app adds, but I do appreciate the options, and the fact that they never fixed this shit (including font sizes for extra 'affix' guns, and not being able to hover over the sniper weapon level bar) is disgusting...

I'll still throw my money at them, near launch (shortly before for the inevitable discount & 'VIP' shit), but having just stopped playing a session of the first, which clocks me in on steam at 238, I can't imagine not getting my money's worth.

Interesting how open they're being with the intent, and timeline...

As if, they're trying to educate the ignorant masses, that would normally bitch about DLC that is developed before launch : )

Here you go guys, the reward for buying Diablo3! Now everyone knows PC gamers will buy always online DRM and now everyone will implement it!

Hope D3 was worth ruining the experience of PC gaming.

Not surprised at the comment... Really not surprised at the person...

Ya know, because D3 was the first to do this...

Glad people are posting what they are buying - I had forgotten to grab the DLC for Dead Island, and there is only 3 hours left...

Ya, I had a very similar experience (saw it on a friends bought list, not here)... And grabbed the same one...

Looking forward to trying it... Hope it's worth the $4 I didn't spend on Vessel instead...

I don't understand why Valve doesn't have 'add to cart' links on the main page... I bet that would single-handedly solve all their major sale bandwidth/overload issues...

I hope everyone bought Trine 2 when it was on sale yesterday - what a gorgeous and nifty game. I am not one for sidescrollers, but the game's originality in design, smart co-op play, and its beautiful art keep me interested.

I bought it at (I think) full price, many many months back... That's a company I want to support (I also really enjoyed the Shadowgrounds games).

Ironically, I didn't load it up and play it (a little) until last week...

The one and only game I went into this sale wanting... And steam gives me errors while trying to buy it (not the first time)...

-Alamar

Which one? I'll buy it for you and you can paypal me the money (or gift an equivalent game when Steam is working again for you).

Thanks for the offer, but it had already expired when I posted... Otherwise I wouldn't have cared as much, since I would have had other ways to do it (like what you suggested).

Don't recall ever hearing about this, but we surely need more iso action RPGs : )

Little worried about the console direction... Touting 'local coop!' doesn't help... But at least it looks like the person joining has their own gear (unliked DS3).

Graphically, I liked the environments, but the font bugs me for some reason (both damage numbers, and especially items on ground).
