Yeah no business leader would ever commit fraud. No politician would be naive enough to believe a sales-pitch involving new jobs in their state.

In the long run, maybe this will work out best for the actual games.

It's not like they won't be making games based on the property.

It's been live for less than 24 hours and someone is complaining because the mods are all just simplistic cheats? Get some perspective, FFS...

Actually this afternoon a fairly huge mod got uploaded that adds more content than most paid DLC for other games has. Give it time.

You're right. BioShock Infinite is so much more immersive and well realized than System Shock ever was...

I would hope so, given the development time, the modern technology, and budget, compared to System Shock 2. It also helps if your publisher cares about the product.

But the series isn't nearly as RPG oriented as System Shock was... and that was my point.

It's not quite like turning a turn based story driven RPG into a shooter. The System Shocks were always hybrids, much like Deus Ex. At any rate, "spiritual successor" doesn't mean "direct sequel", so I'm not going to start nit-picking details about the best game I've played this year. The game might not be heavy on RPG elements, but it makes you think (about more than just the action), and that is more than I can say for most games out there.

Bioshock Infinite deserves it. It's the best shooter in years.

When someone can literally afford to spend roughly 30 million dollars for a 10 day vacation, I have a hard time donating money to them.

News Comments > Jay Wilson: Auction Houses "Really Hurt" Diablo III
57. Re: Jay Wilson: Auctions Houses Mar 29, 2013, 13:24 Beelzebud
 
I just hope that Blizzard actually ate some humble pie over this.

When Jay made the "Fuck that loser" comment, in regards to the man who designed Diablo, the thing that struck me was all the people who cheered him on and backed him up on facebook all worked at Blizzard. One of them even bragging that Brevik (the loser of with whom to fuck) never sold that many copies of one of his games.

This is a group of people that started their careers at Blizzard on third base, and thought they hit a triple.

No one bought Diablo 3 because of those people, they bought it because of the reputation the first two games had. When you take a close non-troll look at Diablo 3 it is an utter shell of the former games. The one thing they got right was the "feel" of the game. Combat can be fun. The problems quickly pile up beyond that.

The "randomization" in the levels is simply a joke. Haveing 2-4 ways for a map to slightly change isn't random. Being able to re-specialize your character at every whim takes any real sense of choice or individuality out of the game. Not only the item drops, but the items themselves just suck. They essentially copied the WoW item formula, and ignored everything that made items interesting in Diablo 2. The auction house was just the shitty icing on the shitty cake. They can express regret about it now, but they tuned the item drops to make the ah the only viable choice to get any upgrades at a certain point.

What happened to the game they showed in all of those early demonstrations? It actually looked fun.

If they do put out a paid expansion for this game, I will not be buying it. Nearly a year in and there isn't even the PVP game they hyped. Battle.net 2.0 is a 100% step back compared to the old system they used to run on dial-up modems FFS.

Troll bait headline by Blue. Way to go!

This isn't item duping by way of cheating or using hacks. This is assholes abusing Blizzards account rollback policy for compromised accounts.

Reading comprehension is hard.


Indeed it is. Like the fact that you completely missed that it doesn't matter how it was done, there are thousands of duped items in the game. The fact that Blizzard literally helped people do it, is a laughing stock.

Good thing the game can't be played offline in single player mode, otherwise people would cheat!

Blizzard is a fucking joke at this point.

When you use a legacy OS that isn't supported anymore, and releaed over a decade ago, you're going to have security issues.

Stretch goal: For 20 million, they promise not to use the shitty-ass Rage engine.

The RAGE engine is awesome, you just have NO taste.

I must not have any taste either. I prefer my games to not look like they were made in 1998, except for the distant cliffs, which look like they came from 2012.

I don't think I will destroy my good memoires I had from playing this back in the days when it was a mod.

The wizard lost he's magic stick.

Having played this before it was cool, you and your hipster pals will have plenty of time to listen to phonographs.

Funny. This is the same type of bullshit Blizzard pushes off in regards to Diablo 3, except replace "vision" with "philosophy".

Looking forward to this! I wasn't fond of vanilla Civ5, but the Gods and Kings expansion added most of the things it needed. This really seems to be fleshing out the remaining systems that could use it.

I did manage to log in and start up SC today, but then discover that it has lost my city! The damn game put me back on tutorial and claimed I had never played before! And this I had about 10K people in my little city. Log on to their help forum and find out there's hundreds of people with the same problem...disappearing cities.

I really feel the burn of $60 going up in smoke here and it does not do much for my disposition...

It's simply astounding that you can't even save a city to your own PC... Talk about taking a step backwards.

I bought this game today and played it for around an hour so far. First impressions are very good. It seems to have a lot of depth.

Wait what? Where are you getting the 10k players thing from? I'm totally with you that it experienced a huge drop off (most games do naturally but Blizzard games pedigree was longevity and value) but that seems dubious. Is it that old XFire source? It's a good indicator but a poor value to use as an actual statistic.

I played D3. I go by what the in-game counter said. I su0ppose I should have said "at any time of the day, it averaged around 10k players."

For a game that sold over 6 million copes that is crap. Even if it was something like 240k, that is still a massive drop in players.
