What is people's opinion of this? I know it is unpopular, but I thought Diablo 3 was a very well made game and had a good 80ish hours of fun with it. I've heard PoE is very slow-paced in comparison, and the skill tree is enormous, but filled with uninteresting skills like +5% damage.

Have I heard wrong? Do you guys love this game?

Tried it, played it for a few days... I couldn't get into it. I did recently grab D3 on the consoles, and it's a whole helluva lot better than PC, though. I've played it considerably more than GTA 5, even.

Shadow Warrior was surprisingly good. If they can make a Blood sequel/reboot of the same caliber, I'll definitely pick it up. Shame that the major media outlets basically ignored Shadow Warrior, though. Most of them didn't post any reviews until a week or two after launch.

Yeah it didnt feature on any Steam top 10 lists either, Im afraid the IP is too poorly known with the newer generation of gamers and there was no marketing to speak of.

I grew up on Duke Nukem 3D, Command & Conquer, Quake and Doom and I've still never played Shadow Warrior... What little I've seen of it looked like a reskinned Serious Sam, but I guess I'll take another look... I've even played Blood 1 and 2, and Hexen, now that I've got that warm nostalgia flowing.

The Kinect might not be built around it, but sure-as-fuck they will shove as many ads as they possibly can, down your throat, while they make you pay to play online or watch Netflix, as they already do on 360. Very close to the top of reasons why I would not consider an XBone... bleh.

Hmm, having fun, but it'd have been nice if some of the changes were warned about. I spent a lot of time searching for Iron before I realized that "Iron" was now "Lead" - or at least the Lead did everything Iron used to. Seems like a pointless change, although maybe there'll be a reason down the line. "Gold" is now "Platinum" too, equally jarring.

I did start off in the new snow biome tho', so that's fun!

What they did was add "alternatives" to a lot of the ores. Lead is similar but better than Iron, etc. Can make all the same things out of Lead, too, which is cool.

Works fine for me, too (2007 Arcade Pro). I did send it in for an RROD in like 2010 or something, but it works fine. Has a 60GB HDD too...

No freezes, no overheats, etc. Haven't opened it to clean it though. Might consider that, since it's "out of luck" when it comes to further warranty-related issues.

I don't really understand this game. I've tuned into several different Twitch streams but all I ever see is some guy running alone across a seemingly endless landscape punctuated with an occasional house ruin.

The few times said streamer meets another person it ends badly for one of them.

Maybe all the streamers suck, I dunno but I've tried watching more than a few.

Try watching some of Frankie's DayZ videos for a better example of how DayZ typically plays out. Some of his videos are from DayZ Mods (the later ones), but most of them are vanilla.

I like all the changes so far to standalone, but I wonder if maybe the inventory's getting a little too complex now? I hope it becomes more intuitive. Can't really sit around in DayZ and fiddle with your inventory, unless you're truly in a safe spot out in the woods.

Remove the AH, improve itemization in all categories (perhaps an entire revamp?), and add mod support and maybe the expansion sounds worth getting...

But you know they won't do that. Can't wait to see what Diablo 4 has for "features".

And Borderlands... Can't fault them for that one. Was made in-house, and it's quality.

Curious to see how this goes, but only cautiously optimistic...

From what little I've played it (on PC), despite UPlay being a horrible piece of shit, it's a great game and nothing but better than Conviction. Note that I'm not comparing it to Chaos Theory or Pandora Tomorrow. If you like Conviction, you'll love this one.

Also, Spies v Mercs is awesome.

Why do some most professional game reviewers post bullshit positive reviews?

Because they're compensated (either paid directly or through advertising). Perhaps the 'fake negative' reviews are actually accurate

Or appeasing to the publisher(s), or getting lots of free swag. :X

But yeah, reviews are generally BS. Never trust them. Only use them for finding out important information about the game, if you must.

I'm going to install it just to see what customization options have come available as far as the commanders and skins go. Pretty sure I'm passing on this game but if they've made major improvements to customization, skins, commanders, then it's a maybe...

Practically the same as the closed beta, but more refined/better interface. Also it seems to run better/less frame skips.

I really like it, but it also doesn't seem like that big of a step up from CoH 1...

I'm sure they'll have a promotion if you subscribe to WoW another year you will get it free! LOL!

They did this with Diablo 3, too, I believe.

And look at how that turned out...
