News Comments > Gauntlet Remake This Summer

Looks pretty good, if the price/drm aren't ridiculous I'll probably pick it up.

Magicka had some great aspects, good netcode. I don't see Arrowhead doing anything horrible to the Gauntlet formula to ruin this game, and they have slapstick violence down pretty well.

Ok, this is just getting ridiculous. Yet another MOBA... surely some of these developers must be realizing by now, that this joke of a sub genre is already saturated?

Going to try this out pretty soon, but it looks like they did NOT fix the 2h damage bug(2handers are rolling with 1h or lower damage).

TBS? Yes? No? Wait for it to go lower? How long is it?


About the same, I was debating buying it, but nobody I know actually has it. Also, be warned, no subtitles are available in the game, from what I am reading on the Steam forums.

Wtf, that dog is just stupid, but the person with the laser light is lucky the dog didn't start trying to bite the dot, like some dogs tend to do.

It's all fun and games until somebody gets canine fangs sunk into their neck.

Grim Dawn is already pretty good, in its Alpha/Beta-ish state. It will most likely be completed, barring some horrible events, and they seem to be churning through their design list pretty steadily.

It is definitely an evolution of Titan Quest though. If you hated TQ, you will most likely dislike or outright hate Grim Dawn.

Hrm, I was at least hoping for a huge campaign. Given the developers I guess that was a lost cause. Gameplay looks pretty good, I'll probably still buy this when it hits $9.99 or so.

Looking forward more to the full release of Hawken though, to be honest.

As with most of the commenters below, I was also a bit underwhelmed by Van Helsing. Of course, I did finish the game, and didn't really feel ripped off or anything for the 7 bucks or whatever it cost on sale...


I will probably get this also once the summer sale hits. They had some good ideas, and hopefully the actual combat will be better.

Ugh, the circus around this game isn't even funny anymore. It's just embarrassing to see people tossing thousand of dollars at virtual ships in a game that won't even be released for a year (the last piece).

Come on, humanity. Surely P.T. Barnum wasn't going to be right forever ?

Oh, and they're already working on Battlefield 5 - it'll be a police themed Battlefield made by Visceral Games, and of course there's the Star Wars Battlefront game too.

police...themed battlefield, lol?

Police driving around in their tanks, blowing shit up? That's probably only a few years away from becoming a reality anyway, so good timing by DICE.

Excellent tweaks overall with this patch, BF4 is coming along nicely. It's too bad it has taken THIS long, but the game is very good right now.

I am glad DICE admitted and fixed the sniping scope issue, I thought I was just getting really old.

A bit leery of the anti-air "mines" they have coming up in the next DLC, but I guess I'll have to wait and see how they actually play out. The last thing that game needs is even more autonomous AA bullshit.

D3 is definitely better in many ways with this patch. Not really any denying it.

Still, the basic flaws of D3 are still there, the required Main stat, Vit, crit chance/damage, attack speed and all resist are still there.
To a lesser extent, resource regen and life on hit now, instead of Lifesteal. Items will drop with higher values in Main/Vit stats, but far less crit chance/damage and attack speed.

Also, for some crazy reason, Blizzard has also changed to a Primary/Secondary stat system on items, where ideally you get a 4 Primary/2 Secondary stat item(some items will have a bonus stat, so 4/2/1). In practice, most items drop with 3/2, or 2/2, or even 2/1, making them useless right off the bat.

I disagree with the article on Loot 2.0; most of the loot drops will still be garbage. If you barely played D3 when it was new, then yes, most loot will seem great. If you had any sort of playtime at 60 previously, you will end up keeping most of your items into the 60s or even to 70, assuming you want to get the expansion.

I've put about 25-30 hours into this patch, mostly Torment 1, some Torment 4-6 on my better geared guys vs easier quest mobs. Around 20 legendaries/set items, some good rares. Due to 2hander damage bug(known and getting fixed), and some bad luck, only about 3 of those legendaries are any good.

Classes seem improved for the most part, Wizard definitely got the biggest buffs...my Wizard is an utter beast now. Lifesteal Barbs and Monks will be pissed, but you can migrate to mitigation/resource regen/Life on Hit pretty easily. Witch Doctor also got some nice changes, mostly for the better. DH stayed about the same, although DH resource regen really took some hits.

Quest experience and cash rewards are much better(so much better that they most likely are getting nerfed due to Blizzard overreaction), which is good because gem and crafting costs seem like they are going through the roof. Supposedly enchanting on the Mystic gets exponentially more expensive as well. Still, I went into this patch with about 7 million gold(not even high enough to count for D3 poverty levels) and currently have around 16-17million.

Disclaimer: Some of that is from selling White items on the Gold Auction House to either bots or some sort of scammers, I can't figure out which, for about 85k each. White items drop commonly enough that they certainly aren't worth any gold whatsoever in my opinion. They could be planning ahead to some of the supposed crafting recipes, but from what I've seen most crafted items are garbage money sinks anyway.

The Paragon system was reworked also of course, mostly for the better. Still just another grind for minor boosts though. Experience gain does seem to be a lot faster, definitely faster than the PTR/beta.

All that said, vanilla D3, without the expansion, will still be playable, but you will miss out on level 70, the Mystic, the crusader, and most importantly Adventure Mode, which breaks up the monotony of running the base game a little.

I am leaning towards buying RoS simply to get Adventure Mode/bounties really. Still, Blizzard has most of March to utterly ruin the game in some way with a hotfix and make me skip the expansion.

*EDIT* Typo.

I will be buying this when it goes on sale for $9.99 or less, rest assured.

Something tells me that in spite of the polish and digital Christie Mack, the story of a man and his magic phone that can hack everything in the entire city will get pretty old, pretty quick.

Still, I did enjoy Far Cry 3 when it finally dropped below my price threshold, in spite of the Uplay nonsense.

This Kickstarter looks unlikely to succeed. One of many it seems.


I was surprised to see the actual Kickstarter stats though:

35.16% success rate for Games, which admittedly, some are not video games.


One in three isn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be though.

Holy fucking SHIT.

It makes sense given George Takei's age, now that I think about it, but that is an amazing and extremely depressing story about the internment camps. I have even more respect for the man now.

Also, how the fuck are interviewers these days so poorly prepared? Takei had to correct them numerous times about basic details they could have googled in about 1 second before the interview. Commendable patience from Takei there as well.

Wtf, why do companies even bother making these sort of trailers? Amount of gameplay actually shown, less than 1%. Useless. Especially considering how deep the ARPG category is at the moment, at least in sheer number of titles if not quality.

Did they ever add the option to move the chat/dialogue window? For a text heavy game, it drove me insane to have to stare into the top right corner of my huge monitor while I read everything, made my neck and eyes ache. Huge design oversight *among many* by the developers.

A bit off topic, but how huge is your monitor, and where do you sit in relation to it, hehe. I am picturing you about 1-2 feet away from some massive 75" screen, whipping your head back and forth playing various games.

Ah, sweet. I can get around to finishing Returns now without raging out if I have to get up in the middle of a quest.
