Meh, AC4 was good but the games are stuck in a rut. They need to totally change up the combat systems at a minimum and have less repetition in the side activities. AC4 would not have been well received without the fun distraction of the naval stuff.

Fucking George R.R. Martin... finish the BOOKS before you contemplate raking in movie level cash, please.

Sorry he's too busy blogging about pizza/football and attending cons. Don't you understand the plight of the artist?! Martin is the laziest author.

Personally, I want people who have negative things to say about a game to post comments. I want to know why they don't like it, as it may help me decide if I would like it. Unless Blue imposed a rule recently that comments are for fanboys only, I don't see a problem.

It's not really a problem, I am the same way. Likewise there is nothing wrong with pointing out that people who just mindlessly thread dump so they can evangelize some other game are being stupid.

Well I don't really understand the twitch thing either, but I guess its like facebook for gamers.

I like streaming with twitch but I don't feel the need to broadcast my face while I'm doing it. Some of the streams can be pretty fun to watch, the sports streams in particular can get hilarious.

Yeah CoD is really in a rut, they need to *gasp* let them take a year off and produce something with new features.

Agreed. For the life of me I don't understand what is driving the crazy adoption rate of it but I'm happy Sony made it optional.

I'll check it out later for sure. I'd really like a decent multishot build like I used to have but it just feels way weaker than it used to be.

Anyways getting back to Diablo 3 I am not really feeling my Demon Hunter since the big rebalance patch. Maybe its just because I'm using a pre-patch Windforce or something but it just feels like I do less damage than before and can't get a satisfying skill setup. Gloom feels weird now too, I don't like the change. Grenades still feel terrible, Bolas are ok but I run with friends and we have enough visual effects going around as it is.

I keep going back to my Wizard as the most fun to play. I hope the Crusader is good though because I don't care for Monk or DH at all anymore.

Game ain't worth shit.

I don't white knight like you Verno, I say it like it is.

I don't "white knight" anything, sorry you were mistaken.

Played d3 for 5 days, game bored me to tears. 1 day to 60, 4 days in torment, build dont matter - pick a generator, load up on your class stat and farm away hoping you get legendaries or sets that make it somewhat more interesting.

I'd say if you played for 5 days that you got your moneys worth but maybe you just value your time differently. I am not particularly invested one way or the other. In fact I've had quite a few arguments with people over the games flaws. But I think most people can find $20 worth of enjoyment in it.

lol polls on character skills in an ARPG.

When you have no real build opinions within the characters... you do silly character polls like these. Easy pass, the core game is too basic waste of $20 as is.

Your butthurt over not-PoE games is pretty amusing.

The game is easily worth $20.00, even moreso since the big patch.

Conversely I found POE to still have annoying desync issues and gave up on it awhile ago.

Outside of launch window Diablo 3 was fine. It had many other problems but latency isn't really one.

Not usually, no, but 2 nights in a row they did after 2.0. I think it was Thursday and Friday. The first night getting into games was very hit and miss (maybe connecting to 20% of games), but once in you were ok. The second night you could create games but the latency was out of this world bad (>1000 often.) There were lots of official posts about it, but in the end the result was "server load."

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12091749147?page=1#8

That's what I mean by launch window stuff. Patch days, expansion launches, retail launch, etc. Known big traffic days where its pretty easy to avoid any issues by just playing something else. If this stuff was a deal breaker for me I wouldn't be playing many games at all.

The only good thing that came from this was that the RMAH basically subsidized my copy of the game.

No it's not worth bothering unless you have literally no other RPGs to play or replay. It is very much a B studio game that lacks polish everywhere.

That's funny you should mention that because it's the first reason to pop into my head. Is creationism that big of a problem in the states?

From an article a couple of years ago:
About 46 percent of people say creationism explains the origin of humans. Just 15 percent say humans evolved without the assistance of God, a Gallup poll finds.


That's fucking scary that so many people lack any real critical thinking ability.
