Well that certainly makes waiting easier for the GOTY or Platinum or Diamond or whatever they are going to name it this time, to come out.

I had been thinking about picking this up on launch... but that is a lot better idea. I know they need money all the time instead of just when a game is finished. But DLC is getting kinda tiring. Also with so many games coming out, it's hard to play through it a second/third time just for some DLC.

I'm not going to look up anything Asian MMO related at work. Can you travel the whole world without loading screens? I seriously doubt it.

Well I'm not that far in (only level 10) and I have never run into a loading screen, running through all the starting from zone to zone.
You can check out people streaming it on Twitch and they seem to be running around on horses from zone to zone with no loading screens.

I've been watching a few twitch streams on this. The only loading you get is when you instant teleport to another place. This game seems to be the MMO we've been promised for years with houses and crafting, but hard to say how well it works endgame and with the F2P model.

That skydiving video of the plane crash is pretty tense. Sucks the pilot didn't make it out.

Says in the video comments that it appears the pilot got out and only received minor injury's.

Remember when company's let us Beta test their games for free? Or even paid us to beta test them? I was watching some streams of this game and it looked like it would fill my crafting needs for a bit... then I started looking into it and it seems like they want to just destroy it.

Vanilla WoW melted the servers when World PvP was first put in. Hell even when battlegrounds were put in, servers still melted. It was a wonderful time.

The other thing if you have noticed is that the release notes and Control Panel PDF are still referencing the WHQL drivers and not the Beta drivers. Could have been an over site on their part or just trying to avoid it for now

They always do this because beta is beta, just like how you have to change the settings on their tool if you want it to look for beta drivers instead of just WHQL.

I know there was an article a while back saying that the increases were measured off the launch drivers for games. So 10% one month and 15% the next was really 15% overall, not 20-25%. I can't remember where it's from but it makes a lot more sense of the numbers until they release where they come from. Sadly I don't think we'll ever see the source of the numbers in today's market.

They want to sell the unit for cost? Uh-oh... so what are they going to shove in there to make money for them?

I think they were going to sell it at a loss before to make sure it's cheap enough to get an install base. Kinda want consoles did the last few times at launch.

Sadly I think this is a good idea. Now collectors editions extra price all depends on what's extra, but I know i'd have gotten a few online games digitally if I knew that I would be able to pick up the collectors edition items separately. I'm looking at you blizzard art books/usb sticks.

So basiclly they're saying that gearbox forced you to go into bankruptcy and sell off your things really really cheap? Oh and you didn't sell the IP you sold the GAME about that IP?

Wow, sadly this is going to get settled out of court so we'll never know what really happened.

I think people confuse the PS2 remakes on ps3 with emulation sometimes. Either way PS2 emulation is already done really well on PC hardware, so they shouldn't have too much a issue besides money grabbing.

The only thing they need to make sure is that it is an emulator. So we can just stick our old disks into the PS4 OR buy it off PSN. There's a LOT of games(see rpgs) that have not shown up on PSN yet.

Voting with money on this one and i'm voting F2P. Beta wasn't even close to quality of a lot of other F2P games that came/coming out this year. This just felt like another RIFTS/LOTR with worse game systems. They have been improving it and i'll give the team that... but being pushed out the doors way too early. Console sales will really decide this one, and I think it will be harder to go F2P with them around.

I always love how it's this sever issue, but they're not going to announce the delay until the day of release. I get it you don't want more bad press so you work until the last min hoping to fix it... but still you can at least tell us WHAT the problem is. Acting like the PC players have no idea of what goes into game dev/fixing still after all these years is a huge joke.

For some reason I was thinking this was already out. I hope it's a fitting sendoff for Irrational.

Yup, and the way the PS3 handled backwards compatibility was putting a PS2 inside. That's really damn expensive. Would you rather a cheaper system or a backwards compatible one?

I'm split both ways on this. I'd love both options honestly, if I wanted to spend an extra $100 on a PS4 that can play PS3 games, i'd have glady done that and removed the PS3 from my shelf. Just don't make it the ONLY option for buying a PS4 and you keep people happy. Instead it's just cluttered with another system and I'm having to build a new shelf(not a bad thing just annoying).

I think we'll be seeing PS1/2 games on the PS4 before long as most of those are already emulated on PC.

Axis: Okay this is a gaming news site. Those are all gaming news stories. How are they worthless news? Fix listing, announcements, and addresses to game issues. I mean if this wasn't news for a game, then you would have to remove about 75-90% of the content on the site. What do you consider to be news and not news about games?

Not accurate. She becomes available during Act 5.

My bad with that... assumed people would understand it's not the whole act you have to play but the act itself(like the BS and Jewel). Either way you need to play into Act5 to unlock.

For LgFriess:

You can do everything in act 1-4 only and get lvl 60 from playing through without the exp. Problem you run into is that the exp isn't just 61-70 it's Act5. IE if you want the story to continue beyond the killing of Diablo3 in a natural progression you'll want the exp come tuesday. I haven't done a new character, but most people were saying that one play through of Act 1-4 got you around lvl 50 without repeating levels/turning up diff. So you'll have to play through it again or just repeat quests from 50-60 where as having act5 will let you keep exploring new levels while leveling up.

You can't unlock the mystic to mod equipment until you've played through act5 once.

News Comments > Blizzard Investigating Diablo III HC Character Losses
18. Re: Blizzard Investigating Diablo III HC Character Losses Mar 19, 2014, 12:54 Linksil
 
Most of the comments here summed it up pretty good for both sides. What the people saying D1/2 had offline why can't D3 have it. Is because D3 wasn't designed for offline or single player. It was designed for a coop arpg loot hunt. Yes the drop rates were very wrong, yes the AH love or hate changed the way people thought about the game. But D1/2 were designed as a single player exp first with multiplayer added. D3 was the other way around. Games change, if you like it or not that's just a fact and you have to live with it(read as buy or not buy the game).

Don't compare simcity because there a difference in a game were you make your own town and were you run around in a group killing things. IF simcity did something like you and your online friends designed the town together, then maybe... but it's not. The online is just so you can look at each other towns and try to do trading. The offline mode for D3 doesn't bother me, it's all the bitching and whining that people are still doing about it and not even realizing that there's a difference. Oh yea consoles have an offline mode, but they had to totally revamp majors systems in the game and still want you playing 2-4 player coop instead of single player during it.

Funny thing is D3 did GREAT with having online only.
