I'd be surprised if anything new pops up now...

Overall, not a bad year, but not a great one, either.

Hey guys, honest question. I cant for the life of me enjoy this game because i dont see the point of getting better gear....just to get better gear? And i really really do love ARPG's, but D3 it just seems so pointless to me? Can you guys share your experience with me on why you play this as opposed to (any) other ARPG's?

Disclaimer: I don't play a lot of ARPGs outside of Diablo2 years ago, Torchlight, and now D3.

For me, the excitement is awesome boss fights/close calls, and the neat loot that gets dropped.

In the case of D3, I spent about a month at launch, before walking away. I came back for ROS, and while I played for two months almost nightly, I can't tell now if I'm burnt out, or that other stuff suddenly interests me more. The more I played of ROS, the more I tire of the grind. It's a balance: You don't want the game so easy that stuff drops every 5 feet, but you also hate to grind for two hours one night and have nothing to show for it (my current predicament, baring the new changes above).

I've pretty much got T2 under control, but I'm also not finding a lot of meaningful upgrades to continue, either.

Rifts I find to be a lot more fun with friends. Solo, I tend to play a lot more conservatively, which doesn't make them as fun.

So I'm at a bot of a crossroads. ROS made the game a lot more enjoyable, but at the same time, farming night after night eventually gets old.

Comcast turns Houston home routers into 150,000 public hotspots.

Paygate. What the fuck is that about? And as someone on /. says:

So does this mean that charges for copyright infringement (or other such activities) will no longer be brought against people based on IP Address evidence alone? Because this certainly gives a lot of people a lot of plausible deniability.

I'm going the DXHR route on this one of totally ignoring it, expecting it to suck, and then I might be pleasantly surprised once a few folks play it. But I'm not holding my breath or anything...

That's rather curious. It's also why I didn't craft much, as the drops were generally rare, or once you did craft, the items specs weren't what you hoped for.

Do you support legislating the labeling of everything because stupid people refuse to accept that the contents of a coffee cup might be hot and they should be careful while handling it?

You should watch this documentary before spouting off about hot coffee. McD's spent a lot of money to try and portray this as a frivolous lawsuit, when a) they should never be serving coffee at 195 degrees, and b) they shouldn't have had cheap cups that explode on a mere 3 pounds of impact.

That's fair and all for a specific instance, but it doesn't change the fact that lawnmowers need to have stickers warning people against sticking their hands in the spinning blades. For real. Hot coffee is just the easiest go to example for the practice of idiot proofing the obvious.

Was at a hotel in Vegas last year, and the fire sprinkler was on the wall, facing into the room. And they had this big sign above it about "DO NOT HANG YOUR CLOTHES HERE."

Wouldn't scumm (emulator) also run it? I admit I've not tried it...


In point of fact, the 3D games (Grim Fandango and Escape from MI) aren't SCUMM-capable, there's a sister project that handles those:

Oh wow, I didn't know that! Thanks!

Wonder if we have any more coming?

Hopefully DX. Also surprised EA didn't say anything about an updated Mass Effect collection that's been rumored.

But I got my GTA, so I'm quite happy. Was really starting to worry as the day went on...

That Weezer video was a riot...

Kind of feels like they all shot their load early doesn't it? Fireworks went off before it got dark.....better be some huge announcements coming up.....

There always seems to be a race to see who can grab the most attention first. If we've not seen it yet, I doubt it's there...

I can't be the only one totally sick of Borderlands after #2, can I? This looks like BL 2... with low gravity. Needs some things to mix it up.

I'm not sick of it, just burnt out. But being burnt out is something I did, not the game...

hell even Sims 4 (my SO has yet to stop squee'ing!)

I believe it was the EA conference: Did you notice how many women (or very high pitched men) screamed when they started talked about The Sims? It was a little freaky...

E3 2014: Remastered Grim Fandango heading to PS4, Vita

While that's good to hear, why not the PC?!

And you can't play the original because...

Good luck getting it to work on Win7. I tried and finally gave up.

Still have the original CD though.

Didn't they already announce DX? Not here, but previously?

Yeah, I'd just like to see the damn thing...

I've tried the original Magicka at least 3 times, both SP and MP with friends, and it never grabbed me. I could never get used to the spell system somehow.

I'm the same way...

As people have mentioned, the game eventually was ironed out and then there was no doubts but even before they were ironed out, it still showed plenty of improvements in many areas. Simply put, taking into account the game is GRAPHIC BUGS FREE, they cannot compete with PC gaming rig maxed out.

A couple of years and hardware revisions later, yes. But at the time it launched (and I'm assuming you'll judge 5 at launch, this fall, when you play it?), 4 was a mess. Hopefully that's not the case this time...but people bitched to high heaven when 4 shipped.

but is it coming to PS4 or PC first? or at the same time?

Trailer (very end) implies it's coming to PS4/PC/xbone all at once.

In addition, preorders (that I linked below) offer all 3 new formats.


this is awesome!

and great timing for me, because Rockstar Games just contacted me for a job interview right around seeing the GTA5 news and i'm hyped as hell! probably wouldn't get to work on GTA5 if i landed the position but still pretty happy.

Give em hell Fantaz!

Yeah, congrats and good luck!

Listen, there is no console that can ever compete with the latest PC hardware. They can hate all they want, but the console will always be limited to the hardware it comes with and to optimize the game to run SMOOTHEST vs looking great when all is said and done.

So what did you think of 4 on the pc? <ducks>
