And the most entertaining part is watching how hard all the suits try to convince themselves that this is "it".
It sure wasn't "it" almost 30 years ago, it sure isn't now. Though as much as they try, someone will try to warp it into some twisted warped logic that yes, "it" is.

Pretty sick & tired of the Edison bashing, revisionist diminishing of the man's accomplishments be damned.
Edison deserves all the bashing he gets. And he wasn't the only one, he was the only one who managed to land a contract on it. The shelby bulb should be a fine example of why your point is wrong.

*facepalm* Then again they could simply get around the password problem by setting up a simple script to invalidate the existing password and requiring a new one.

The only game that comes close to SoSE is Homeworld/2. And Homeworld is a genre defining game in itself.

Born '74. Hack and slash is fine by my. Diablo's major gameplay mechanic seems to be managing my inventory - it ain't hack and slash it'a SimRucksack.
Then obviously you never played the first two games, because you did exactly the same thing in along with hack and slash. Which is one of the reason why PlugY is so popular.

Didn't like the beta so not buying this but have met people with the click-shit-to-death-collect-loot mentality before.

This game seems to be an almost introduction to hoarding combined with an an OCD for clicking.
Someone has never played a hack and slash game from the 80's before? Oh wait...

My guess would be 12-15 hours for a normal person to play through... and that's still only normal mode.
Wouldn't surprise me if it was longer. It's taken me more than 4hrs to get through to the second level of the cathedral.

7 hours
K? Remember it took 2hrs to beat Fo3, FO:NV and Skyrim too. But my first playthrough of FO3 to complete it was 68hrs, NV was 85hrs, and Skyrim was 168hrs.

On the upside, this gives me time to go fire up the BBQ and roast me up a steak and some burgers. Mmmm...BBQ.

I was doing the same and was about to give up and try tomorrow. Saw that my friend got his to work, so I did the same and got in almost instantly. Whether or not it was the restarting that did it, the circumstantial evidence is there!
Circumstantial is all good. It gives hope! Finally managed to get my character created, and am in the game. Off to enjoy myself for a few hours. Cheers to anyone else who makes it in.

Restarted my computer and got in game in a few tries after that, worked for my friend also. Wouldn't hurt to give it a shot. Game is not laggy at all once you get in, steady 60ms here.
Restarting doesn't have much to do about it. I'm waiting for my baclofen to kick in, so not much to do but wait and wait, and wait, and wait, while trying to do it comfortably(protip: never get a spinal cord injury). And managed to get past the initial error 37, to get an error 3006(too many people trying to log in).

4 attempts later I'm finally at character creation. With a 3006 after trying to create my character.

They probably wouldn't have had the problem of the servers choking to death if they'd staggered the release across timezones instead of waiting for everyone to go at 12amPST(except asia).

Why bother unlocking the game PST? Why leave fans waiting till 3 am to play on the East Coast?

Because they don't give a shit about the east coast. It was always the same thing with WoW as I recall.
I remember the last 3 wow expansions being available pretty much as soon as you installed them. I was able to play at 12:30pm est for cataclysm.

Yeah, I'm guessing, with it shipping this fall, that if they were going to do any direct x tomfoolery (like 10 be exclusive to pista) we'd of heard of it by now...
Are they going to try pushing: "Win8 now available in x128 flavors" Get it in the next-next generation, before the CPU's are invented!! To be honest though, even if they did hardly anything is using DX11 so you can probably safely write it off until "Windows 9 - the non-fuckup"

Caps exist to screw people over or lock them into 'VOD/IPTV' services given by their ISP. Nothing more, nothing less.

So wait... Blizzard's argument is that if you make a fan mod for a blizzard game that turns super popular, Blizzard owns it?
In most places if you make a mod based on someone elses assets they own it. The only places it doesn't apply are generally meshes, textures and music. This is more so held true when you're using their toolkit to make it.
