That's seriously effing impressive. I wonder how much Patjitnov has actually made on it.

I was about to say zero, but then I looked it up, and Patjitnov is actually involved in some way in the "Tetris Company" that Hank Rogers runs, and publishes various versions of Tetris in the US.

I assume it's a shitty deal, but probably more than enough to live comfortably on.

The cool thing is that for games you buy on Steam that require Uplay, it doesn't matter which service you launch the game from, it will also launch the other service. Twice the waiting, twice the updates, twice the fun!

The new Might and Magic is the only UPlay game I have that's on steam, and steam updates it, then when I launch it, UPlay shows up, in the background... And there's no noticeable delay... I actually didn't know UPlay was there until I exited the game.

-Alamar

Hrm, I must be unlucky with Uplay, I have that same game, and various issues with Uplay (had the game from a Steam coupon) made me uninstall it. Of course Far Cry 3 had the same system, and it was tolerable for me.

Regardless, Uplay will make me wait until Watchdogs is in the bargain bin before I buy it.

Found a shitty, low-rolled Maximus today on my Crusader.

Pretty much beat the game.

Haha, yes, the fire chains from Maximus do some pretty ridiculous damage, at a very high tic rate. I hope it isn't nerfed, my crusader is loving his.

RNG is RNG of course, but my drops seem to be much worse this weekend, to coincide with this nice experience boost.

I get this, Deadlight, and Dying Light mixed up. Let's get some zombie "horror" games that start with the letter J or something to that effect.

And I thought I was the only one wondering where the zombies went....

Very confusing naming going on with those 3 games.

That's at least two people confused, let the lawsuits begin.

I'm playing my Crusader now, on Expert. I am only at Paragon 85, but I did use my points... Crusader seems great in the early levels.

Maybe the crusaders taper off in power in the 60-70 range, but it seems like a solid class so far (15? Expert level, could probably do Master or possibly Torment really without slowing down a ton).

Also, nerf wizards. j/k. My Barb was lucky to finish Act 5 with 270k dps, my drop luck in D3 continues to be horrible.

I hit lvl 70 this afternoon in Path of the Drowned (Blood Marshes) and still playing Torment 1 as a Wiz. I'll keep it on T1 until I simply can't progress without dying repeatedly. It's only been mini-bosses giving me a tough time. Elites/Champs and Rare mobs have not been an issue.


I gave up Torment 1 at the second or third miniboss, then dropped from Master down to Expert at the somewhat interesting miniboss(close quarters!) and finished the game at Expert. My gear did get better though, I was just doing Adventure Mode on Master and one shotting people (Barbarian still), so it may be time to bump it back up to Torment 1. Game just crashed to desktop from a Rift.

Solo, level 70, Torment 1, mini-boss hp: 545million, I was unable to dodge long enough to kill her. Defeated.

I haven't had any real issues with the servers so far, just a little bit of lag here and there that's probably on my isp's end.

However, the HP scaling in Torment 1+ seems to be completely insane. Torment 1, fighting a certain miniboss, my Barbarian was level 65 at the time, and the boss had over 330million hp, according to the health bar readout. That fight easily took 15 minutes on my admittedly lower-end dps barb( about 150k at that time, bad luck finding weapons).

Also, Act 5 seems to be AoE or go home. Every other creature spawns 4-10 of smaller creatures, and there are a few chain spawner scenarios where you can end up with dozens of trash mobs running around, soaking up damage. On the plus side I do see a couple exp farming strategies in the future, when you have some decent gear.

Got to level 69 before I had to take a break and go get some exercise and dinner, DPS is up to around 260k now with 2 socketed 1handers(rares, no good legendaries yet). My drop luck seems to be even worse than 1.08 so far.

Easily the most dangerous affix seems to be those homing Ice shards, that not only start doing damage instantly when you are in the radius, but they also slow then freeze you even as you start running. Those + vortex + waller or jailer = usually a death for my Barb, even with 280k hp, 800 all res, 78% armor reduction. Not sure if the damage portion of the ice is bugged or what, but it's way higher than the poison/fire damage affixes by far.

The maps so far have been pretty good, packed with creatures once you get past the very first act 5 zone. There seems to be a lot of side areas/mini-quests available too, I've been going for a complete clear of Act 5, but you can definitely speed through to the mini-bosses/boss if you wanted to.

Barbarian definitely feels weaker in the expansion than vanilla D3, but that's partially due to my generally shitty equipment as I level. Avalanche is beastly though.

I'm almost finished my first run through and I'm 51 atm. So can I play with people running harder levels or do I have to grind those out alone first?

You can join a multiplayer version of any quest you have already completed, or join any friends' game in any quest period. You cannot start a Torment level game until you are level 60, but you can join one earlier(not that there is any point aside from getting carried/leeching)

I don't know about non-expansion people joining expansion games, etc.

I have put entirely too much time into Diablo 3 already, so I already have 5 pretty well geared 60s, one of each class. It seems best to play one to 70 and finish Act 5, unlocking the Mystic, THEN going back and starting my Crusader.

Then the Crusader will have Jeweler/Blacksmith/Mystic, 4th storage tab, and I can easily steamroll him to 70, potential weaknesses be damned.

Although I do feel a cold coming on, I wonder if I will be too sick to go to work tomorrow?

Sooo.... is Payday 2 even worth it? I hear that game is a bit of a grind, and the developers keep changing the game mechanics.

Anybody actually own the game and still play it?

I know there is a free weekend going on, but I've already spent my video game time so far on D3/GW2

The timing of RoS kinda sucks for me however. I just started a new job in another town and I move next week. So aside from a few moments here and there I'm going to have to wait until the first week of April to really be able to dive in to RoS.


The plus side is I'll be avoiding the inevitable queues and server blips for the first few days.


Exactly, you won't miss out on much aside from excessive lag and some last minute bugs requiring hot fixes. I am debating not even buying it for a week or two, just to save myself the aggravation.

Lol. I went ahead and bit the bullet since it was 19.99 and I'm enjoying it. Can't decide on a class though. Everywhere you look, everyone sings the praises of the Wizard, but I found it just kind of boring after about 15 levels. I had more fun on the WD and Demon Hunter, but Demon Hunter seems to be the redheaded stepchild of the game.

All the classes are pretty lackluster at low levels, honestly. The game doesn't really start until you are 60 and have all your abilities, in my opinion.(or 70 in the expansion) At that point, currently, the wizard starts to really pull away from the other classes.

In spite of that, the game is probably the most playable it has been since release day right now, and all classes have at least a few builds that are viable up into Torment 1 or 2 at the least.

Demon Hunter will require more kiting on your part, since it's a dodge based class, with no inherent damage reduction like the monk(the other dex/dodge based class)

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

The last thing fantasy readers need is another Robert Jordan dying before he even finishes writing the main series.

Although Song of Ice and Fire has really been going downhill in quality, it'd be nice to get an ending.

I'm still relatively new to GW2, but I really didn't think the Trait system was that confusing. Who exactly was spending less than multiples of 5 in any given trait line? The giant hexagons every 5 points seemed pretty straightforward. I'll have to wait and see, I guess.

Forcing people to do dungeons to get some traits seems like it will end badly. Currently it's near impossible to find groups for some dungeons at most times of the day, compared to WvW or PvP where you can easily play basically 24 hours a day if you wanted to. At least on my server.

Then when there is a group for a given dungeon, they only want Berserker Warriors with 6k Attack, etc.

I assume the cost to buy those same traits is going to be prohibitive, or requires excessive grinding of some new drop.


Still, the grandmaster traits don't sound half bad, although the last thing necros or mesmers need is any sort of buff.
