Is there a budget? I'm no audiophile but gamer gear type stuff is almost universally awful and overpriced for the components. I would recommend you get some Audio-Technica headphones (M50x, M50 and AD700s are nice) and just slap a ModMic on the side, great sound and a good mic. I use the ATH-A700s but I think they're discontinued. You pay a bit more but you get better quality and it will last a lot longer than some gamergear headset. The difference in sound between my old gamer headset and my new setup is night and day.

If you really want that gamer gear style stuff then Steelseries (Siberia line) makes some decent headsets with retractable mics. I wouldn't recommend paying more than $100 for the Siberia V2s though.

News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party
3. Re: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party Mar 24, 2014, 09:43 Verno
 
I think I'm gonna sit out release week since the servers are usually pooched and see how reviews shake out. I've been enjoying Diablo 3 again which is nice but the same time Adventure/Bounties would need to go really far to keep me playing. Combat is super fun but I just find myself bored with the games systems after some paragon farming.

So yeah, gonna wait and see what people have to say about the length/quality of act 5, how the Crusader is and how bounties affect long term play.

I'd like to see less rambling, incoherent stories out of Ubisoft games and more emphasis on depth in gameplay mechanics. Far Cry 3 was super fun for the first few hours then gets old really fast with a typical Ubisoft story that long overstays its welcome.

Oh well, we'll see what happens. I wish Anet had guys as good at developing systems as they have guys who are good at developing content.

Completely agreed. My gf and I have stopped playing GW2 lately because of the poor systems. For me, I have the biggest beef with their living world, skill system, ascended gear and skins.

Living world has been pretty much a grind fest of achievements. It's okay the first time (if you manage a bug free experience, QA?), but after that, they want you to grind the same events at least 5 times over to receive your participation award. Most events ultimately wind up being the same zerg fest you see with the rest of the game, it's pretty uninspiring. I'll admit that the closest they've come to something entertaining was the clockwork puppet boss event in Lornar's Pass.

I've never been a fan of the same restrictive 5 skills per weapon. I'd like a bit more customization than having an offhand weapon set to swap to to open up new weapon skills. Some weapons are plain garbage which exacerbates the problem. Their proposed solution in dev right now? Open up class restriction on weapons... Not exactly the right solution...

Yeah I was a big fan of the skill system at first but its worn on me, particularly when so many weapons are poorly balanced. It's weird how they're so great at producing rapid content updates but for balance related stuff their pace is glacial.

No you pretty much misread it start to finish.

As for twitch itself, I like the service but the lack of archival on the PS4 broadcasts is pretty annoying. I know its being updated in a firmware revision soon though.

I enjoyed 4 for all the naval stuff and shanties it brought, but I'm really really tired of the on foot stuff. I don't think I can stomach climbing a viewpoint for the millionth time. Or a follow mission.

Agreed. It's just old at this point. I think the French Revolution is a great period of history for a game but at this point I'm pretty far into franchise fatigue. Without the naval combat to prop it up I doubt I would be interested in more of the same. I'd like to see some dramatic changes to several areas of the game. With 800 people working on these things you would think they could do more than the repetitive stuff we've been seeing.

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.
