What was that loud thud? Oh, it's Thief...

Glad South Park is doing well. Good boost for Obsidian.

Undocumented Alien wrote on Mar 7, 2014, 10:42:
Combat is still A+, but I think they went overboard with Loot 2.0, need to bring it back to the middle more.

My only gripe with 2.0 is, at least for me so far, it almost makes crafting pointless. Sometimes I'll go through and see what gear hasn't been upgraded lately and craft something, but then I'm afraid something better will drop right away. I can then DE the lesser item, but still...

That Pee Wee Herman bike is a replica, BTW. The real one is in a movie museum in Hollywood.

So there was only one single bike used in the entire film?

silly expectations from the S-E guys... i think they got lucky.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they've admitted 6 million was way above what any of the earlier games sold (at least at initial release), so how they came up with that number is baffling. Hopefully the moron that did was fired...

I picture a Stevie Janowski type person saying "Guys...this is gonna sell...6 MILLION!" and everyone looking at him going "Really???"

I'm averaging about an orange an hour, so far...drops are waaaaay better than they used to be.


I think they went almost a bit too far with smart drop or whatever it was called. I am drowning in loot every time I play, it feels a bit absurdly rigged that almost every item I find is awesome and useful.
I don't see myself playing for 100 hours though so that's fine by me. It's a bizarre comment I know given the games history with terrible loot but it's like they were so sensitive to the complaints that they went too far in the other direction. I think they will end up tweaking it down a bit and find a nice middle ground for the packrats who will play this nonstop for months. Even if they don't I like this result much better than getting nothing for hours on end so I'm glad they erred on the side of caution.

This is just something to pass the time between new game releases for me so if they want to fill my loot bucket whenever I play then hey whatever

I dont know why Im not seeing this? Maybe things are slightly differntly tweaked on hardcore? Or it might be a level thing, Im lvl 14-15 and drops have been pretty much standard but at this level it might be hard to notice this.

Im going to play a longer session today to check it out further.

The only think I can think of is, maybe since I started a brand new character, it's dropping more loot, to try and get me up to speed?

My previous character had 40-45 hours, and only saw one orange. I've played for 3 nights this week, and got two shoulders, a dagger, I believe an axe, and maybe a chest piece?

edit: Started on normal, and when that was easy, I've moved to hard for act 2.

Willing to bet this game will be on a DLC overload. I'd wait for the gold edition.

They never did that with ME 2 or 3, so why would they now?

Played about two-three hours yesterday. Wanted to experience the game changes fresh so I created a new character: Monk Hardcore.

2-3 hours in, killed the Skeleton King and about half way to the Butcher. I havent noticed any difference really. Drops are about the same. Experience is going like crazy due to the 50% extra come-back-and-play-please buff.

I'm averaging about an orange an hour, so far...drops are waaaaay better than they used to be.

Shaq has a reported net worth of 350+ million dollars. They want 450k to make a game about him. Seems like if he had faith in it, he'd put up most/all of it, for a return on investment?

I was just going to add that myself. Just say no to funding mufti-millionaires who can easily fund their own projects.

Agreed. Put up or shut the fuck up, Shaq.

Let's not forget this guy rented 400 apartments for hurricane katrina victims.

If you're not sure a project is going to be successful, crowdsourcing will give you a pretty good idea, up front. I suspect that's why he did it.

Let's look back on the game in a year or more before deigning the patch a success. D3 1.0 was "fun" for a short time too.

I don't totally disagree with this sentiment, however I don't think there is any real doubt that this patch was a major improvement in the eyes of people who were unhappy with the game.


I can think of many great games I'm not playing a year later. That doesn't mean they just weren't that great to being with...

I'm <really> looking forward to adventure mode!

Loving the improved monster density/combat as well. It actually feels like Diablo now.

MS always performed best when under fire. Writing them off as irrelevant is just naive. They are so deeply entrenched in corporations they aren't going away for 50 years minimum. Unlike in the volatile consumer market...

What have they done lately that's been successful?

And most corps aren't using DX.

Mr. Tact wrote on Mar 6, 2014, 08:36:
Got the wizard to 60 last night. I have to say I was a bit worried the fun would slow down... but it hasn't. I finally found two items with those cool attributes some people have mentioned. One with a 29% chance for a 300% weapon damage bleed over 5 seconds, another with a 30% chance for causing a mob to become a "lightning rod".. don't remember exactly the damage amount.

That along with two increased "Blizzard" damage items, a slight modification of my skill selection, and I really started kicking butt. I no longer needed to pull out the big skills for the elite trios. Just Blizzard and electrocute -- no problems. Got to Paragon 4 before heading to bed.


Came across my first cursed chest last night - it was fucking awesome!

Cloud saves are the devils work, Oh, I see you've almost completed the game! That means it's time to overwrite your save file!

They're like the 21st century version of checkpoints.

"NO. I have no ammo and I'm surrounded!"

"I'll save your game here."
