1440p baby! That's where it's at...

-Alamar

I have zero intentions of buying a new 60" TV anytime soon, and 1080p is more than enough. I can already see the pot marks on actor's bad skin. Any bit sharper would probably make me want to vomit. As for 3D.. zero interest in that too... that shit gives me a splitting headache within 20 minutes.

I'm with you on this... I've watched like 2-3 things on blu-ray (or just simply, higher than DVD quality), and I don't need it...

But that's in the living room... I want a '1440p' resolution on my desktop, because I like screen real-estate... Which may come in the form of the 27" iMac, but I want to wait on the next model, which could be a year+ away...

They're not going to call it the 720 are they? That's just begging for Sony to come out with the Playstation 1080p and tell everyone that they've got Full HD.

Wow, what a huge mistake that would be for PS3...

Assuming ~10 years is accurate, and why wouldn't it be considering the length of PS3/360... 1080p won't be 'full HD' in half that time...

1440p baby! That's where it's at...

Isn't that around the time all the major ISP's become the MPAA's bitches and start sending threating letters to people because they think that sometime, somehow they might just have downloaded something they shouldn't have? And it doesn't matter what the person says, they are guilty and never proven otherwise?

I got such a letter many years ago... It specifically mentions the time and content (movie)...

And warns you to stop and that further action could result in some blah blah... blah...

Edit: Canadian Caps... 3.9% is scoffworthy... And nothing new... Just about every product, even those created locally, are pricier in Canada as compared to the US... Having 10 times the population (the US) changes some things...

I already have a backlog... Ys, Farcry 1/2 (finally gonna give them a go), some others I can't think of... But I'm looking forward to throwing some more money at Steam for the summer sale.

All I need to do, is stop playing Diablo 3... Which, could happen, because it's hurting my hand... Oddly, I think from the lack of clicking all the time : )

Well of course stuff sells on the PC. Have you seen how many stupid people are on the internet these days? All it takes is a nice, simple shiny thing with flashy colors, and the herd comes. They are still making the Sims FOR FUCKS SAKE!. SOMEBODY is buying that shit, and believe me, people have also pirated the shit out of it too. Yet it goes on...and on...and on.

The whole "Piracy ruins everything!" translates EXACTLY to "We need more hookers and blow. Pay us MORE for less dammit!"

The target demographic for the Sims don't know how to pirate ; )

So they can afford to put in minimap customizaton now!
Lol, but they have so many excuses why that money can't fix it ok. It's not modular, and no amount of money can change that!

I realize you're mocking, but you're actually spot on...

No amount of money thrown at this problem will fix it... Within the time frame people are expecting : )

All they've said is that it's a non-trivial change, and that it'll take time.

Though honestly, I'm not sure what it would add more than Grimrock... Maybe just more content...

I dunno, it seems like the perfect size to me, but I'm all for customization.

See, that's just it, thank you for actually having an open mind. Just because something "works for you", doesn't mean you have to be bias and attack someone who suggests an alternative. All we, and I say "we" because there are 1000's of posts on forums about it, want is for the ability to scale the size of some of the interface. You know, like in so many other games. That's it. But instead, we have fanbois or people who are okay with the minimap size flaming us all day long. If you use default movement keys, and the game doesn't let you change them, would you flame people for asking to? No? Then shut up, because it's the same damn thing.

Out of the 30+ friends list - no one cries about it but you. No one else has had such a bug up their A that they damn near refuse to play the game. It is as though you have this problem that is so severe that it detracts from your game when something is so far out of the play area that you feel the need to stare at it.

I dunno. You appear to make it a bigger problem than it actually is....in fact your only posts on the game mention it, in fact in one post you actually mention that it drives you insane. Might want to look into that. It isn't normal.

I'll ignore your aversion to math or statistics, and maybe help highlight the problem...

'You appear to make it a bigger problem than it actually is, for me'...

Glad I could help...

And all I saw from his original post, was a request for the change... not an 'O M F G, this is BS; I'm quitting until this complete disregard for my eyes is punished... with a whip...'.

No, it's not the elites per se. It's how they can go from being a fun battle that requires a bit of care to instant death with no opportunity to manage the situation (or should I say "play").

That's exactly what is wrong with the pack affixes right now, some are literally unbeatable when your combine their base mob abilities with the affixes. The terrain you're fighting on makes a big difference too, generally lack of ability to kite will mean death. It's not something you ever really outgear either which makes it a pretty annoying balance issue.

Well except the chap said he only got midway through nightmare. I don't recall it being much of a challenge at all at that point. Maybe he could post what skills he is using? Because I don't think nightmare is really that gear dependent.

The entire game, including normal, is gear dependent... It's just more of a requirement in later difficulties/acts... Some people truly have bad luck with drops, and have trouble on fights in Normal... I know, it's crazy to even imagine ; )

It's also avoidance dependent...

Frozen orbs are launched long before they blow... Move earlier...
Arcane balls are launched long before they 'shoot'... Move earlier...
Molten/Desecration... Watch for it, and move as soon as it touches you... Especially when Jailer or Waller are involved...
Fire Chains... Move often... Don't ever be the monkey in the middle...
Mortar... Is meant to be fought in melee range... If you're purely offensively geared, you're likely already ranged, so you can outrange it, with lots of kiting... But if not, or if melee, get up and personal... Unless they're ranged mobs, because those fuckers will spread out and mortar you from 3 sides... In which case, use corners : )

Some other affixes make the above harder, like vortex with arcane... When there are 3-6 beams down, and you get sucked right into the middle, there's nothing you can do (depending on your OP abilities and mashing/lag timings), except... you guessed it... move earlier... For vortex, don't let the mobs stand in desecration/arcane areas...

Thing is... most of the combinations people complain about, I giggle (yes, like a school girl) at, because I want those easy combinations (which just means I know how to avoid them)...

And that's not to disregard the comment about space... When I enter a cave, and the very first pack, practically in view of the door, has affixes that need space to avoid, well, I die a little inside...

Why stop there? Let's imply he has a 14 inch peni... er... monitor... wait, that was somehow backwards...

I notice it all the time on my twenty FOUR inch WS, but that's because I'm always using it...

Anyone else remember their last found upgrade?

I got a String of Ears Legendary the other day.. Made my Barbarian (lvl 55 at the time) very happy : )

Not an ideal roll on the stats, but I look at the bright side... the only Barb specific stat it got was strength, and the strength is crappy (30 ish), so while I could lament on how bad it is compared to the ultimate roll, I'm happy I can pass it on to other chars when they catch up ; )

Gawd, what a great community of elitist assholes we have here...

Do YOU remember your first post? Did you finally decide to sign up and share your opinion because you were... wait for it... excited about how much fun you're having in a game?

Actually, I guess you all signed up to correct someone, or talk about how bad a game was...

News Flash for those without the common sense to realize it; not everyone likes the same thing. Liking a game you don't doesn't make them a shill, or a fanboy... Using those terms says so much more about you, than the person you're trying to disregard. It's about time you grow up.

If they are not willing to invest in the security of the customers that pay their salaries, and provide and ensure the appropriate security measures are available to *ALL* customers, then maybe all of their customers should turn to a major publisher who does invest in the bottom-line security of their customers, out of the box.

Excuse my ignorance, but could you show me a few companies that spend their money for my bad security and inability to not have my account hacked, again, at my fault?

Ah Blizzards classic 'need 4 hours of downtime for this hotfix' followed by 'we need one more hour' shenanigans. GW2 beta weekend is on right now and when you get a patch there, you just have to restart and patch up, servers don't even come down. It's so nice!

True, but the combat is boring as shit...

I couldn't stand more than 10 minutes this weekend... I would like to make myself play some more... And maybe enjoy it a bit, but I have so little desire... (Part of that is that it's beta, and characters get deleted... I hate deleted chars ; )
