News Comments > Diablo III Will Require Persistent Connection, Feature Cash Auctions, and More

Fuckin A... I'm amazed so many people are bitching about the persistent connection. Maybe I'm just crazy, but real money being used in the AH for gold/items is WAY more important of an issue here.

Yes, Gearbox's sole purpose in life is to make fun of people like you and get you in a tizzy. They win.

Are you for real? D:
Don't read so much into it. I'm taking it at face value and I appreciate when any big developer implements features the PC community desires. Hell, I never really intended to play DNF based on negative reviews, but acting like ungrateful smartasses won't get you what you want in the future. Like Verno said, I can't see how this is a negative. I can see possibly being apathetic, but beyond that I think you're just being whiny.

It's good news for PC Gamers if you like begging for scraps.
You can either choose to accept and understand this is the way things have been for a while and move on... or you can be spiteful and never move on.

Never happy. As a PC gamer, I appreciate the changes. Unfortunately it's spite like yours that's probably heard more.

Would have been nice if they were available at release, but at least they're addressing concerns.

Anti Sniper mechanics! Love it. This should curtail a proned sniper from cleaning house when nested somewhere hard to reach. Toss a few shots up his way and then run cover to cover. I'm really like the idea of this so far.

The core game is very lackluster. Sure, it's interesting for a short period of time but quickly grows boring - even when played with others.

I guess the mod community has done some nice things but I haven't tried them, yet. I may not just because I can't see Minecraft ever being more than mildly entertaining.
Thousands of people would like to disagree with you. Myself included. Different strokes for different folks I suppose, but I think calling Minecraft boring is crazy.

If you guys can't get excited over neat new features like Pistons, then Minecraft clearly isn't for you. Otherwise y'all just sound needy. Games aren't supposed to be easymode. It's quirks like having to coordinate sleeping at night that gives games flavor. Which frankly seems to have gone down the shitter over the last few years. Regenerating health is an example of that. I'm not saying games should be entirely clunky and quirky, but they shouldn't be easy/convenient like the majority of console games out there, either.

I get how information like this can lower levels of expectations or create skepticism, but the drastic tossing the hands up in the air exclaiming that you're not buying it anymore is a bit childish imo.

Honestly, I never know where to start with user generated stuff in Minecraft, it's like a labyrinth. There are so many client side and server mods then stuff that works with X but not with Y and so on. Have they developed any standards yet like the Bethesda communities tend to or are they just waiting for the mod tools from Mojang?
This is also why I don't bother with all the mods either. Maybe when the mod api is released and it's easier to plug stuff in I'll give user mods a shot. I think once that's released we'll see a lot more organization to user content. Or at least I hope!

That said, I am pretty stoked about official Pistons getting released this Thurs.

I was missing Sean Bean and I watched the Black Death movie the other night for that very reason! It wasn't a great movie, but decent imo. I half expected this game to be based on the movie.

Those have to be some of the most awkward running animations I have ever seen. Meanwhile, running with a sword right in front of your face is probably the oldey times equivalent to smoking while pumping gas.
Wow. To think I was looking foward to this, but you point out some pretty glaring ugliness. The human character animations are absolutely terrible.

Blues hivemind. If "we" like it, stfu and buy it or gtfo you baby. If "we" don't like it, you're an imbecile for buying it.

Don't get me wrong, I contribute to this, I just find it amusing.

Oh please, cut out the PC crap. Stolk was spot on. I played the game, and found it unexpectedly fun. I wouldn't nominate it for game of the year, but its not terrible.
It's not a matter of being PC, it's a matter of not being an inconsiderate ass. It's just unnecessary to make the point is all I'm saying. You probably would have agreed with his opinion of the game regardless.

Trying to determine the quality of Duke Nukem Forever is like trying to determine the intelligence of a retarded child. I don't know how to come up with a score. I played for about 5 hours last night and had many negative feelings about things in the game, yet still somehow managed to have fun.

To the article... He was a douche but he also apologized. He deserves some of the flack he's getting, but it seems he realizes that opinions are opinions and he can't control them. Hopefully they make a better game next time, then he doesn't have to deal with negative reviews and we get the Duke we've been truly waiting for.

No, it is NOT a multiplayer game. You may prefer that side of it, but this is being built, marketed and sold as a single player AND multiplayer game. People have every right to expect a reasonble single player experience from a game that's being sold as such. Telling them they shouldn't because YOU prefer multiplayer, or because YOU think the single player component is unimportant is just plain stupid.
Historically, BF has always been about multiplayer. This is what the fanbase has come to expect, which is why you'll see the majority of BF fans not giving a shit about SP. Myself included.
