News Comments > Path of Exile Expansion Closed Beta This Month
41. Re: Path of Exile Expansion Closed Beta This Month Apr 13, 2015, 01:07 eRe4s3r
 
biggest problem of PoE is the complete lack of item comparison features.

You may scoff at D3 for various reasons, but when I pick up an Item that does 15% more damage but doesn't have a 15% skill damage perk for a skill I am constantly using then I *know* that that item need to be rerolled.

But in PoE you have to compare dozens of stats 1 by 1.. dark souls of the ARPG genre does describe it nicely. Also PoE has nothing of the "wow" factor that Diablo 3 has when you encounter legendaries, or kill a big boss. The sound design is meh, there is no bombast and fluff.

And in D3 you definitely have to think to some extend, but the main focus of D3 was always about the loot. And the loot changes how you play D3 fundamentally at times.

Maybe it's me, but so far I was always bored to death by level 16, where I honestly found maybe 20 good decent items to use in that time. And barely 10 skills. That's just not doing it for me.. fixed progression is really no issue considering that legendaries can drop that completely change what a skill does, or how your skills work.

Witch Doctor = Fetish Army stays alive until it dies, is for example a complete game-changer. It allows a witch doctor to have 10+ creatures on screen that each do 685% weapon damage, that's just insane. Compare to that to PoE that doesn't seem to have a proper summoning skill tree to begin with, only skeletons and zombies. That are very slow to attack stuff with bad AI that gets stuck everwhere.

My answer is YES. In the end it's the player choice whether he actually does it or refuses the game and puts it down.

Btw, I snuck a live grenade in them pockets and regret nothing. But I find it absurd how some people make up this insane idea that we can't tell reality from fiction.

In the end, you illegalize something, you put it in the underground with ZERO oversight and much more criminal intent. This "fictional CP" law western nations have been peddling the past 40 years has created underground cp rings including one that has infested nearly the entirety of the UK power structure. Where even the MI5 (or was it MI6?) colluded to prevent a big name from being investigated.

Great job, law makers! You just created a world where children are not just raped but sold into underground porn rings and shared among the powerful who don't need to fear persecution because they control policy, police and secret agencies. While everyone else is put behind bars for making fictional porn, the powerful get away with raping children in reality.

Sigh! ;(

Hate to say it.. loved descent in MP back LAN parties sure.. but fun? Didn't really consider that fun ;p Just a challenge... and because controls were such a mess skill ceiling went through the roof. And you could end up with very 1 sided MP matches indeed.

Not really looking forward to a remake of that either. Especially not one that has so much focus on MP

I think it's extremely hilarious that the Department of Commerce ... you know, a department, about, commerce.. does not know that Intel is selling CPU's via resellers and not directly... but I guess government agency jobs do not require intelligence or the ability to think.

GUI definitely takes some getting used to, but in terms of "polish" the gameplay is definitely nice, combat is hands-off, and can get very very epic scale. Very little required micromanagement, planets develop themselves though you can boost certain things if you want. And a very clever planet advance system that promotes fast expansion and makes it very easy to actually DO that. And you have the choice whether you want to push your homeworld to max level or make every planet somewhat equal (though for lvl 1 resource worlds that's impossible)

Got the game gifted because I worked on Star Ruler 1, and have to say it's fairly good. Much better (imo) than Star Ruler 1.

670GTX 2GB

Not gonna upgrade for a few years still. (I also don't care when I have to set resolution or graphics down a notch which I guess is good with games coming out that all need 4GB Vram...)

I didn't know about this game at all.. and that was probably for the better

As i am a huge GITS fan this just reeks of cheap cash-in licensing deal. Specially because FPS is not what I think when I think GITS (but a GITS SAC RPG ala Splinter Cell meets Mass Effect would be awesome... just episodic with new case every few weeks) They could make a fuckton of money with that idea. But no.. mmo fps.. because reasons.. bleh

Btw, for me Deus EX is the true GITS-like game for now DX:HR went VERY much in that direction and probably not by accident. So.. like all others here, I have no idea what the point was of licensing that name for a mmo fps...

Funny thing is, where I live there is a roof floor but NOBODY ever goes there, as the floor makes noises is if the house is collapsing....

I lived downstairs too for rent.. that was.. not nice. It really sounded like my upper neighbors were digging up the walls. Turns out they just had 2 toddlers and a dog. And that dog was super nice and quiet, the toddlers were annoying as hell. They dropped everything on the wooden floor, which sounded .. horrible.

The cultivation effects of sexist attitudes from a general use of videogames over a three year period from a German population has not resulted in any appreciable changes in sexist attitudes.

Saves you clicking on GamaSutra and reading a ton of pointless writing. Study shows there is NO relation, btw (nice clickbait headline which leaves the "no" out to make the headline more baity)

No shit. It's the same reason people who grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons don't go around dropping anvils on people's heads. If you can't distinguish fantasy from reality you've got far bigger problems to worry about than whether something is violent or sexist.

When I was 3 I hit my 1 year old brother in the head to see the stars, after watching roadrunner cartoons. Mom threw out the TV after that, and we didn't get another until I was 10 or so.

Interesting anecdote but there is a reason we protect children up to a certain age (though that age is debated hotly and interpreted differently across societies to end between 10 to 16) from certain things. The reason is that their mental abilities are not enough to handle them, specifically fantasy vs reality but also relations with other children and adults. They need to learn social conventions and clues or they might be easily abused by someone with nefarious intentions, and they need to learn to never intermingle fantasy and reality. For the same reason you don't let 3 year olds watch someone play Call of Dooty, Halo or Evil Within.. or porn VNs

But most adults are not easy to influence. For many reality vs fantasy is not a problem they even have to conscious think about, reality is reality, and fantasy is not. This leads even so far that many adults are completely unable to immerse themselves into a fantasy world (something children are very prone to)

So yeah. This study might as well have been about Nature vs Nurture. And it'd be interesting to see what exactly makes people sexist, xenophobic, violent and how parenting and environment play into this. I think games can influence people to some extend, but they can never change established ways of thinking

Btw am I the only one who has no time or patience for podcasts? I want info in snippets readable and nicely sorted, not in a giant blur of voice and talk that takes an hour or more just go get a few points across. And then you can't listen to it anywhere but a tablet or a pc in case you want to actually you know.. click on any relevant links at that time.

So.. yeah

That is very interesting as you are right ;/ The latest (or rather, last.. est?) Win 7 SP 1 install discs have this checkbox on by default. Well.. you never stop learning apparently.

Then I was apparently wrong.

Someone please explain why they don't ship on a 64GB USB drive versus discs.

64gb USB sticks are expensive as fuck compared to 7 DVD's that you just stamp with masters.

If you don't want the game to cost 100$ you shouldn't ask for USB delivery

Such behavior patterns are associated with depression and anxiety disorders. Constant public existence until a certain point, when depression overrides the urge for attention and people wall themselves in.

This is very worrisome. Maybe I am overthinking things ;/
