Every time I stop playing for a few months and come back, the game feels almost like a new game.

If you believe this you aren't very bright. League of legends has less content then games over 10 years old. It's the biggest scam in gaming, I've wondered where this game could have been if it was opened up to the public to mod. The heroes are usually just reskins/skill swaps with some stat modifying. It has way less maps than many games that came before it. The same maps are played over and over again.

Someone getting bent out of shape over someone elses opinion on the internet, and stating that 'they are not very bright' as an insult has a certain irony to it ...

Everyone has an opinion ... and that's all they are 'opinions', not fact and certainly not justifying a personal insult!

News Comments > Diablo III Season 5 Begins

Yeah... still zero interest in playing seasons, Blizzard. Forcing stash unlocks into seasonal play is really a scumbag move.

To be fair, the majority of people playing seasons will not get the unlock. It is hidden behind the Season Journey, which will need people to:

-Kill Diablo & Greed on T10
-Reach GR50 solo
-Finish a T9+ rift in under 4 minutes
-Level 3 legendary gems to rank 50
-Complete 2 Conquests

For reference, the conquests for Season 5 are:

-Clear Act I-V Campaign in an hour
-Achieve a 50mil gold streak
-Clear GR45 no set items (upgraded from no "class" sets last season)
-Master 8 set dungeons
-Clear GR55 with 6 different class sets


Plus, it is 1 tab per seasons. Each season lasts for 3 months. To get the full 10 tabs, you will HAVE to play every season for 1 year straight!

0 interest in playing Diablo 3 after playing its beta. Is it better now?
The original beta? I think there's a fairly large consensus the game was significantly better after the expansion.

Post game is amazingly fun. The 10 hours it takes to bring a new character there? Not so fun.

It used to be around 10 hours, but doing adventure mode (bounties and rifts) it is around 3-4 hours now. Plus, if you do bounties you are really farming the drops you need to use the cube properly, so it isn't wasted grind like it used to be.

If you have a friend, they can boost you from 0-70 in around 30 minutes doing T6 rifts.

To be fair, even with their sale prices, Steam is rarely the cheapest place to buy games in any case.

I miss the days when their sales were wallet emptying exciting ... now, they are just damp squibs!

I don't know much about GW2, but if the game doesn't have a subscription, why would they have to thank you for anything? You paid for a game, and got a game - isn't that all there is to it?

If you had been paying a monthly subscription, then I sort of get it, but with the way the game is now, it doesn't make any sense to me.

Man, I really hit a nerve there for some people.

Whatever. As I said before: no thank you to you loyal player base is in my opinion a very bad move. Would it have hurt them big time to say "Guys, you stayed with us from the beginning, here's $5 off from the expansion for you"? But the only guys who got a present is EVERYBODY ELSE but the veterans. Is it really so difficult for a lot of you talking about "entitlement" to understand that it would have been the right move to show some gratitude to people that supported you from the beta?

But to each their own. I cannot and will not accept such a behavior and will therefore no longer buy anything with ArenaNet on it. Hey, I might be one of the lucky guys and - after the release of the next expansion - might get this one for free.

But this is business ... they know the people who have been there from the beginning will buy it, so charge as much as you can ...

People who haven't been there from the off will need more encouragement to part with their £££ ...

Economics 101 ...

Lies ... I've tried the game twice and not once have I had to queue for a server ... they are just trying to feed the hype machine.

I'd say twice is a fairly small sample size.

Agreed, but has anyone had any probs getting a game?

The game looks pretty, but fundamentally it is a re-skinned COD clone, and nothing like its Battlefront routes ... just a console cash in!

Played for around 15 minutes in total and I just can't see myself going back ... certainly not tempted to pre-order!

No real interest in this, unfortunately.

After watching the special people, aka twitch gamers, play it for the last few days.. it just felt like battlefield meets cod in star wars environment

This 1000%

I loved BF2 and even 3 to start with, but this is just pure COD gameplay with a Star Wars skin ...

Don't get me wrong, it is fun for the 30 mins I played it, but I have no need to go back - unlike the 100's of hours I put into BF2

It's odd that they release this just after a massive discount. It had been 80% off, quite steep for a game that's only a year old. I might have bought it if I had known about this.

88% off right now at Amazon. making it $5.99.

That deal isn't valid in my country

You only need an address on your Amazon account based in the US ... better just get a Chinese Takeaway address in Alaska (no additional Tax there), and add that to your valid addresses and change your delivery address for this purchase to Alaska - it's a code, so it will be emailed to you. Enjoy

Played a somewhat boring 68 hours, got too bored to complete it, never touched it again.

One could argue you got your monies worth???

Yeah I guess, but I was mostly forcing my way though it in the hopes it would become good. There were some points that were pretty good. Worth the money? Sure. Best use for the money(talking games here)? Probably not.

I know what you mean - I finished the story, and by the end I was pretty bored ... never killed a dragon through the game, and no great pull to go back and do so ... also, I'll wait until the DLC is on sale before even considering more - my backlog of games is big enough already!

Believe it or not, there are a LOT of games on Steam that don't actually use ANY DRM to run. This list is basically every game available on Steam (probably outdated though) that doesn't use the Steam CEG or a third party DRM like uPlay/etc.

"Believe it or not", but Steam is DRM!

They can remotely rescind your license to play a game you have bought at any time!

What a cool idea to make a game where if your internet craps itself on day zero you completely wasted your fucking money

Probably the case if the flock is made up of <100 people, but can you seriously believe they would have the number that low?

Sorry I forgot this is the internet ... no reason to let logic get in the way of a cool story!

Well indies are not exactly specialists in predicting sales ,)

But is this kind of sales concept even legal, on steam and in the real world???

What a strange question ... what would you deem to be illegal about it? A license to use a piece of software in the knowledge that that license will only provide access to the software for a defined term sounds fine to me. Not sure there is anything illegal there.

Well screw that studio and their stupid game. Like I would ever spend a dime on such a stupid premise.

You're probably the sort who buys the annual rehashed CoD, Fifa, etc games though ... because their business model is so much better? Oh wait a minute, no it isn't ... you get rehashed games and servers go offline ... this is just a much more honest way of doing the same plus without the rehashing!

Nice to see that in your haste to post you forgot to read the article ... "So far, things are looking great." and " In fact, many games that had issues on operating systems newer than Windows XP once again won’t suffer any hiccups on Windows 10."

Sorry, nothing to whine about here
