News Comments > Digital Diablo III Now Spends 72 Hours as Starter Edition

This would makes sense if they are suffering from a lot of credit card fraud. People buying the game with stolen credit card numbers. Other retailers would obviously have to look out for themselves.

Or perhaps they are just giving themselves plenty of time even though it normally only takes a few hours to unlock.

Total guesses. Don't really care, stopped playing. Inferno Act 3 became too much like work, instead of staying fun.

Saw both of your posts and authorized you both Nate and Cutter. Nice to have some Blues Crew aboard.

Thanks double. Now just need the beta to start.

I know a lot of people hated T2 but I loved those 64 player mashups with vehicles and discs flying around everywhere. That game was technically a disaster in so many ways but when it worked, man it was fucking great.

C22 sounds like a lot of fun, I love outfits where the goal is just having a good time trying different things other than zerging.

We did a lot of things like this. Our original Claim to Fame on Konried server where our Tower of Power nights. Where we would go take a Tower in the middle of a fight between NC/Vanu where we didn't belong and see how long we could interrupt their battle. (Sometimes it was a half hour or more)

We also experimented with going to a locked continent, draining a base neutral in the middle of the continent to bring a fight to us and start the new continent that way (Instead of following the designated lattice lines)

We did the standard outfit things, ran Reaver nights and Armor Column nights. But the Spec Ops stuff we had the most fun with.

We became well known for doing random things like this and I truely hope Planetside 2 left room for this kind of gameplay.

More than welcome to come hang out with us, though right now until the beta starts it's mostly just a few of us playing BF3 or the original Planetside at night.

That sounds like a ton of fun, Drez. Seeing as I'm pretty insanely stoked for this game I've just registered on your forums and will applying because you guys sound like the sort of crew I could have a hoot with. And I'm super easy about roles/direction. Happy to play offense, support, whatever. In fact I'm thinking I'd quite like to play a medic.

Does sound like a fun clan. Applied on the C22 forum too.

Was thinking of purchasing this expansion but recently bought Warlock - Master of the Arcane after playing the demo some time back.

Warlock is quite the fun turn based strategy. The AI is good! Let me repeat that, the AI definitely seems good! After so many other disappointments, this one has polished quality in abundance. $20 price too!

News Comments > On BF3 Cheating
36. Re: On BF3 Cheating Jun 18, 2012, 17:43 Nate
 
That article was crap. I stopped playing when all that cheating hit BF3. Ruined too much of the play. Getting on servers that dealt with cheaters quickly was too much of a pain.

From what I read, DICE did way too much client side and BF3 will never have this cheating problem solved.

News Comments > Diablo III Asia Downtime to Remove Duped Items
32. Re: Diablo III Asia Downtime to Remove Duped Items Jun 12, 2012, 00:35 Nate
 
Blizzard went with the always online to work against having the same cheating that happened in Diablo 2. Its a little simplistic to call Diablo 3's always online aspect "DRM".

Its not clear from the translation if this was people duping items or some kind of game bug. There were posts on the game forum about having two of the exact same item drop off a mob. Which I had happen myself once.

I think this is a good deal versus buying the DLC seperately. It will also reduce player base fragmentation.

Since I lost interest in BF3, doesn't really matter to me though. Perhaps if GW2 or Planetside 2 or the new XCOM weren't coming out.

With the other XCOM game by Firaxis releasing this year, I'd say this XCOM shooter is in a bad situation.

Probably make more sense to just cancel it. The info and pictures on this game didn't thrill.

I would suspect that Blizzard will lower the fees if this turns into a big money maker. They are trying something new for them. How can they know what it should be priced. If nobody uses the real-money AH, all the money they sunk into it will be wasted.

Read that whole handbook. Can see why it takes new employees a year to get used to the lack of management.

I think the gameplay sounds interesting and the concept art is very cool.

However, the current murky in-game visuals they are showing remind me of WoW which isn't a good thing. Its a turn off. If the game graphics more closely mirrored the concept art then I'd possibly put money towards it.

Hope they make there 100k goal.

I thought I heard that it was going to be a peripheral that would monitor various aspects of the player such as heart rate and perspiration that would then feed back into a director type ai to adjust the gaming experience.

I did not get the impression that this was going to be a standalone console type product, but rather something you plugged into your PC.

Thats something new. Haven't heard this speculation myself. If Valve developed a real cheap bluetooth wristband that did this. They could sell.

Since it isn't "me-too mice and gamepads", perhaps a really fancy controller? Or maybe a Windows based touchpad for gaming. So many possibilities. Just hope this doesn't distract them from creating new PC games.

Meh. This ain't gonna be a game changer, sorry.

I'm done with MMORPGs until someone gets rid of hot-bar combat. Watching cooldown meters is fucking boring.

Why someone can't make an MMO version of Skyrim is beyond me. If I could play that game co-op with friends online I'd never stop playing.

No hot-bar combat? Well at least GW2 did away with tab targeting.

Planetside 2 and Firefall don't have hot-bar combat. Course they are MMOFPS games.

Have they stopped the cheaters yet? Stopped playing BF3 when that hit.

I'd also agree that built-in VOIP is a major stupidity. I play pick-up games and I'd use it if it was available. The browser plug-in VOIP doesn't cut it.

I stopped playing BF3, tired of the maps. And the cheating is a turnoff. This announcement is saying to me that no new maps are coming anytime soon.
