The real culprits now are Blizzard and EA.

The people who still keep servers going for titles they released in the mid 90s? Really?

The people who require always online for single player games.

Diablo 2 is fully playable offline. Kill your net connection and try firing up D3 or the new Sim City.

Sorry, but no. When Blizzard starts to take some stuff offline you can try again, but don't even try to compare them to EA now. EA has a LONG history of taking stuff down very quickly, Blizzard is the exact opposite.

My thoughts. I haven't used it or seen anyone using it in probably > 12 years.

I am not a big fan of EA or Origin, but I picked this up. Lots going to good causes and you got quite a few games.

Bethesda ‘pushing’ Microsoft on playing Elder Scrolls Online without Xbox Live Gold subscription

Yeah... that'll happen.

Yeah, no shit. So for Xbox owners, it's 60 dollar purchase price AND 15 bucks a month subscription AND 60 bucks a year for Live AND a cash shop. WOOOT!


On a different note, I totally hope Microsoft rushes the 180 out the door just to beat Sony by a week. That gives it way more chance to fail horribly.

If I am not mistaken Sony is charging for online on the PS4, so it isn't just Xbox owners.


MMOs don't require plus.


Interesting. Makes sense.

I really enjoyed Xcom so I will be picking this up for sure. That said, it seems like they could have added more for that price. Sort of a light expansion if you aren't in to the multiplayer.

Sounds like they are at least saying they are going to address the majority of the problems with D3. Will be interesting to see if they can actually do so. Only one new class seems disappointing.

That said, all the people pretending D3 was the worst thing they ever played... Rolleyes

although RA3 was pretty darn fun.

Really? I didn't care for it all that much. It wasn't awful or anything, but I would rate 2 much higher.

I don't know if a MOBA that costs money will really take off. You can't get online without falling over 5 F2P ones.

Then again it sounds like it already worked on consoles so who knows?

If you want to pretend you are so much 'better' at ARPGs because you prefer a static tree that for the most part cannot be largely changed, go crazy. Can't say I care. I still view that as a horribly antiquated design decision and not something I am interested in. In case you missed it I said "That way people who like that sort of thing have PoE". That is fine for people who like it.

Personally I view it as something I am glad we moved away from. I have played plenty of ARPGs. If you think that is something new users cannot figure out, or requires skill then I just have to laugh. Laugh New users would simply Google which direction on that mess of trees they should go and call it a day.

What is this you speak of?!?! new acts for poe? Been playing that game on and off for months now - such an awesome arpg, it's everything d3 should have been.

No! You keep that awful, antiquated, mess of skill trees in PoE. That way people who like that sort of thing have PoE and no one else is made to suffer under it.

I was so let down by PoE after hearing everyone here go on and on about how great it was. As much as D3 ended up being a letdown I at least managed to finish that. I gave up on PoE after about 3 hours.

Mouse, keyboard. Nothing else needed or better.

Flight and driving games (parts of games) with a keyboard and a mouse? I will pass on that.

We know people want to use the Xbox One controller on their PC,

Who are the three people who want this? Name them.

Kidding aside, it makes sense that it takes some work on the backend to make sure it works. Also: They will only release this update for Windows 8. Just watch.

I used a (wired) 360 controller for several games on my PC. There are games besides FPS and RTS.

There was STRIFE and there was another game that was much more of an RPG that was set in a fantasy setting. I don't think the fantasy RPG one used the doom engine (or anything based off of it) but it WAS a 2.5d doom-like engine. Wish I could remember the name of it. Had to be before '98 the last time I saw or played the game.

They all ran on the Doom engine, even Strife. Strife was the last game made on the Doom engine but was released after Quake came out so it looked really dated by the time it was released which really hurt it.

Strife was really ahead of its time too. A real story, killing everything was a Bad thing, multiple endings, could buy supplies. Nothing remotely like it before then.

Yep, it introduced so many elements of gaming that I hadn't experienced before. Loved that game.

Doesn't mean jack if you can't use those added zoom levels WHILE ACTUALLY PLAYING.

so zoom out doesn't work in singleplayer, only in spectator mode? it's not very clear from the video so was wondering

I would assume the zoom out is for spectators and viewing replays. The game is balanced around the currently allowed zoom levels when actually playing.

The zoom out and improved custom UI looks nice, but seems like this could have shipped with HotS.
