That idea was originally proposed satirically by Jonathan Swift in his essay:

A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People From Being a Burden on Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick.

FTL is such a sweet little game.

Google WTF is FTL to see if you might like it.

News Comments > Diablo III 1.0.5 Interview
13. Re: Diablo III 1.0.5 Interview Sep 23, 2012, 00:33 rist3903
 
How will it affect the distribution of items? Like, can you find item level 63 stuff in earlier acts if you crank up Monster Power?

WC: No, thatís one of the things thatís on the table, but itís not currently how it works. Currently, what we do provide is [increased] magic find and gold find. Thereís also, whenever you get an item, there is a chance Ė fairly small, but it does increase with Monster Power Ė that you get a second item.

I hope you aren't planning on having these second items that drop be the same type that the nephalem bonus gives you: watered down attribute capped items that reinforce the impression that the majority of stuff found in the game is utter crap.

Do you honestly expect this company with its track record of patching and tweaking their games for a decade past the release dates to just give up already? Eventually they will have a pretty good game.

Or an extremely well polished turd, depending on your point of view.

Don't see them giving up any time soon though.

I am willing to believe that Half-Life 3 won't be coming out next year. That is about it though, from these guys.

The reason I stopped playing Starcraft II was because of this. People would get on and start talking to me while I was playing a game and I could not respond to them while the game was paused. the game had to be in motion to be able to chat for some reason. It was utter bullshit.

I would have much rather have seen single player campaign as a goal over say, full orchestral score.

It will sound pretty sweet though, I guess.

News Comments > Diablo III Patch Sneak Peak
19. Re: Diablo III Patch Sneak Peak Sep 13, 2012, 18:36 rist3903
 

I enjoy Diablo 3 and look forward to seeing what they do with it.

That being said, I just learned that the guaranteed yellow for 5 stacks of nephalem is attribute capped, which means there is a definite ceiling on how good that item can be. This in and of itself is a leading reason why people feel that all the drops are terrible, and should definitely be changed.

Metaphor time!

It feels like the carrot that Blizzard is dangling of guaranteed rare drops is just a piece of crap painted orange.

I also feel like a dedicated gambler finding out exactly how my preferred casino is rigging their games.

NPD Group makes headway in its goal of proving that it is irrelevant.

These changes seem positive. A step in the right direction, as the last patch was. Any changes that increase viable build diversity are appreciated.

I was not planning to, but I will be buying Assassin's Creed III when it comes out in support of this decision they have made.

Provided the reviews come back favorably, that is.

The couple of female gamers out there will be happy. Otherwise who cares?
It is important not to alienate female gamers. Also there are a ton of dudes out there who would prefer to play as women in games.

News Comments > Diablo III Patch Rolling Out
40. Re: Diablo III Patch Rolling Out Aug 21, 2012, 17:10 rist3903
 

Just tried this latest patch with my friend after both of us not having played for 3+ weeks. The game seemed somewhat choppy to me, but my computer is not so great, but his is brand spanking new and he mentioned it not running well as well. He said "Screw it, this is giving me a headache. Lets go play Team Fortress 2."

It appears as if the waiting times are something they thought was going to be normal, as the pay to play part is where you jump the line to get on their premium servers. Don't think this will fly when people have the option of regular TF2 and playing immediately, though.

I have tried this twice. First time I got into a server it was a slideshow, second time I got a message 'bad password'. Waited about 15 minutes both times. Probably going to wait a week or so before trying it again.

If they put in multiple ways to complete objectives it may have some potential.

Looks like a dupe to me.

Time to ban them and give the Warden another job: scan everyone's account periodically.
