Yeah that is important when the electricity goes out... Power up that generator so we can continue to play games!

Being able to play games is a side effect, don't go hurting yourself.

It's easy to fix an electricity issue, much harder to fix an external internet problem.

“Electricity goes out too”

That's true, Fucktard, but people also have what we call "GENERATORS", you know, the devices that can generate electricity.

During both Hurricane Sandy and the Blizzard of 2013 (in the Northeast), my kids were playing games on the Wii like their was no weather issues at all outside. Now, lets take that same scenario with your PoS XBOX 720, even with my generator supply "ELECTRICITY" to the house, my kids can't play because of your "always online" DRM.

Conclusion: I won't be buying your fucking XBOX, which is too bad because the Kinetics technology looked like fun, but your DRM doesn't, NO SALE. #dealwithit

Unless Sony completely fucks up, PS4 will be next purchase for kids.

According to this new Kotaku article 1313 was changed into a Boba Fett game before Lucasarts was shut down.

Doh! Maybe someone else will pick it up.

I'd like to see a developer create a Jango/Boba Fett Bounty Hunter type game in the same vein as Jedi Outcast/Academy. You get bounties to take out good or bad targets and go through a story. Surprised that has never come around.

They did, http://www.mobygames.com/game/star-wars-bounty-hunter not a bad game, in my opinion. Though I am sure it hasn't aged well.

Well, no wonder why I never heard of it, they only sold this for consoles... do you know if they ever ported it to the PC? Outside of Mario Bros, Sonic, or Lego Wii games, I don't do Consoles.

I would also be happy with another Jedi Knight game as well of course.

As a working adult with a family, I'd gladly take Diablo 3's system over the others.

Personally, I'd take D1's system over both D2 and D3. I liked the "Save" anywhere capability as you didn't have to run all over the place to find a stupid waypoint to hold your current progress.

diablo3 was NEVER ever going to be "diablo2 with better graphics". diablo 3 was always going to be a different style of game with some core similarities.

Anyway. If you want d2, go play the other games that are available that "built" on that.

If it wasn't meant to be a true sequel to D1 and D2, then they should have created a different Title/Brand for it, calling it D3 is VERY disingenuous to the fan base that elevated the Diablo brand that made D3 possible.

A Title such as "Diab-WoW" or "World of Diablo" would have set the proper expectations and D1 and D2 fans would have understood that "diablo 3 was always going to be a different style of game with some core similarities" and not expected the long awaited sequel.

Doesn't Borderlands meet those criteria, other than the Diablolike environment?

Your right, I guess I forgot about BL, it is an FPS/ARPG, but much like TL 1/2 is cartoony compared to D 1/2, BL 1/2 is much the same. So yes, take BL 1/2 and put it in a Diablo 1/2 style atmosphere (Dark, Fantasy Horror), I guess I'd be all set (maybe a skill tree as well).

But I do like BL 1 (haven't played BL2 yet), as well T 1&2, but both have a less intense atmosphere.

And I agree with Verno, BL doesn't have much in the way of RPG elements, that is why I used HG:L as more of an example of what I would like to see come to the market (but better of course).

No, there won't be a TL3, and thank god. We've had enough ARPG already. Let's move on.

I'd like to see a developer make a FPS/ARPG game, something like Hellgate:London (HG:L), but... better.

I did play HG:L, and I will admit that playing the Marksman (Sniper/Grenades) character had it's fun moments. I liked the mixing of FPS shooter, looting, leveling, and skill tree. As well, a Diablo type environment was fun to explore through.

So... yeah, a De-Roperized FPS-ARPG, set in a Diablo type environment please. Something a little different.

but why did Blizzard fudge completely on D3? I do know why though, it was the WoW & SC dev team that made D3 the best they could, and tailored it to the WoW audience, mistake of the millenium for Diablo property.

RMAH.

It may have sold that many copies, but there are defiantly not that many people sitting around playing it now. Compared to D2 this game has failed to hold its luster that kept many D2 players playing for several years.
What do you mean "may" ? It DID. In fact it sold 12m copies, they announced it on their earnings.

Not exactly a secret or a guess from NPD here.

Also, in last day or two, its been announced that they have 3 million unique players a month and 1 million unique players a day. Seems like its holding its lustre just fine for a large number of people (I'm not one of them).
http://www.gamespot.com/events/gdc-2013/story.html?sid=6406151

People aren't exactly sticking it to blizzard over this game even now. If anything the lesson blizzard will take away from this is they can say anything and sell anything they like and people will rush out to buy it.

As we all know they could have put dog shit in a box and slapped the Diablo Title on the front and it would have sold out 12 million copies. They could have put online DRM, limited installs, adverts, hardware dongles, whatever, it still would have sold 12 million copies... it is a Diablo brand game, they knew they had brand name leverage to do whatever they wanted.

As far as these new unique players, I wonder how many of those are just gold farmers?

So....

Now that we know that D3 can be played offline (i.e. Consoles), a "true" gesture of good will would be to patch in an OFFLINE mode for the PC users.

And yeah, Fuck You Jay Wilson.

News Comments > Blizzard Acknowledges Diablo III Item Duping

If you want to be up front about it, the the game cover should say "Diablo Online", not "Diablo 3 (with fine printed 'requires online connection')"

I strongly agree with this statement. If you are going fundamentally change a vision for a game, then name it aptly so. Much like Ultima went Ultima Online. The new SimCity should have also been called SimCity Online. These corporations know what there doing, especially nowadays when you can't even return games.

Don't sit there and take a game franchise that has strong roots with an SP Offline mode (a mode that got it off the ground with D1) and all of a sudden handicap it to online only, especially for a shitty reason of the RMAH... and then to turn around and release a console version that has an offline mode.

"Action MMO" = Console-style POS. It should be against the law for companies to use terms like MMO and RPG to describe games that are not MMORPGs.


Not sure about it being for consoles, but, yes, it seems the devs these days are just throwing out the term MMO to justify their game being online only. D3 - Umm, yeah, we have this Auction House and ahhh, yeah, we kind of made an MMO; SimCity - Umm, yeah, we have this regional shit... our vision, and umm, yeah, we kind of made an MMO.

IMHO, a Super Heroes game in a Diablo type environment is interesting, but, I see ZERO reason for this being an online only game.

Vision and DRM...

I am definitely going to try this, but from earlier previews I recall you will not have access to all the heroes without paying and/or grinding, or something. Still, action RPG with the marvel universe, it's required for me to at least TEST it.

From what I have read, and I could be wrong, you get 5 heroes to play the whole game with for free, so basically you get the whole game as a demo. Then you pay x amount to purchase other (probably more cool) heroes.

I was looking forward to this until I watched some gameplay videos. Looks less like a traditional MMO and more Diablo-esque. While I liked Diablo, it was hard for me to stick with it for too long. Got repetetive fast and the basic isometric gameplay just killed any sense of immersion. Too bad as I was looking forward to, ah, adventuring with the Black Widow.....

Being of the opposite opinion in regards to isometric gameplay (Diablo, TQ, PoE), I think this looks pretty cool. A Super Hero game with the look and feel of Diablo-type ARPG's, a bit hard to resist. Of course, yet another game tied to online only... not liking this trend.

I don't think I will destroy my good memoires I had from playing this back in the days when it was a mod.

The wizard lost he's magic stick.

Having played this before it was cool, you and your hipster pals will have plenty of time to listen to phonographs.

This has nothing to do with that. Natural Selection 2 is a different game from Natural Selection in many respects and these two games have a different overall "feeling" to them.

I played for a bit, I didn't find it shockingly different. Some changes, but overall I knew what I was doing from my memories of the old MOD.

Just played a few games (1st time) and the other players where dare I say..nice?! Asking the new players if they had any questions and not hoping all over you cause you did something stupid. I'm impressed. I can't tell you the last time I played an online game that's been out for awhile and not been told all the awfully things they've done to my mother.

Same here, just played a couple maps. Peeps were friendly enough, but I don't let that kind of stuff bother me anyways.

Man, my twitch skills have gone to crap... been playing to many ARPG's and CIV type games lately. My Skulk skillz suck bad.. lol.

Have to get practicing...

This game owns. Everyone should buy it, or at least try it on sale. It's a very complicated game (much more complicated than Battlefield: IN SPACE! - BF games don't have much strategy other than "go around the side and capture the points behind the enemy") so if you find yourself getting confused, check out my comprehensive guide to help ease you in to the game.

Thanks, I'll read through it before I play, appreciate the primer.

What the hell, can't hurt to try it when it's free. I'll give it a whirl. Had tons of fun with the MOD version many moons ago.
