News Comments > Diablo III Date? New Blizzard Game Revealed?

Heh, I even called it on here that it could be out in 2011, but no, there were skeptics!

Obviously this is just a rumor mill, but there is a chance of hope!

Yay for banning idiots from multiplayer.

Boo for that meaning they lose all access to the game after 30 days.

I don't think it's just MP. They were banning people for cheating in SP too.

I'm sorry, but Risen lost me after about an hour. I heard it gets better, but if you cannot make it engrossing right away, you need to make a better game.

Oh man, Bruce Lee, Bump n Jump, Spy Hunter, Beachead I and II, Epyx's Destroyer (best sim game I thought at the time), Silent Service, Impossible Mission (never could figure out how to beat it), Alien, Super Bowl Sunday, and so many more. The C64 was awesome back then!

Say what you will about him these days, Populous was a fucking amazing game, and definitely, imo, worthy of "AAA" status.

And IMO, Powermonger was an improvement on top of Populous.


Powermonger was REALLY good. Had many months of fun with that one

Otherwise you're going to run into crashes, more crashes, and more unknown crashes.

In FO3 I get crashes every hour almost on the nuts....

I haven't had a single crash yet and I played it on a 2008 HP Laptop

They've had these at our convenience stores in MN, but I have never seen them in grocery stores. I think the Buffalo ones are hotter followed by the Jalepeno ones. They had Wasabi Doritos at one time that were pretty spicy as well.

Is this really as good as Sins? What's the learning curve on it? If it is as addicting as Sins, I may have to purchase it. Nothing has topped Sins for me yet, but I do like similar games that introduce something new and different.

It doesn't take a "huge marketing budget" to realize you don't pull the wool over your eyes to screw with your customers. Not a bright move and I wouldn't be surprise if this alienates current customers as well as new ones. I sure as heck won't be buying games from them.

Not a good way to maintain and attract new customers. Epic fail on their marketing attempt. I'll stick with Steam and Impulse, thank you.

Hey at least they are providing updates and keeping people informed. How many other game companies can you list that do the same thing? I'm a die hard Silent Hunter fan and we rarely ever hear of any updates from the dev.

"At least Stardock continues to try and improve the game and fix it. Many companies abandon totally a project that's less then successful."

Really getting tired of hearing that excuse. Game is shit period no matter how you spin it. It doesnt negate the fact that they got our money and the game is worthless for about 4 months or maybe more.

CIV 5 here I come

And how is this different from many other games???? At least I got to play the beta and make suggestions. I love the Silent Hunter series and have been burned with the vanilla versions of that. But in the end after patches and mod support, I have no problem handing over money. Sorry for your loss, but there are more people than you think that actually like it.

Wowbagger Tip, it's worth playing now. It's so much better than when it first came out.

This is a welcome surprise - as I was expecting it later in the year or early next for some reason....cool. Always enjoy this late time of the year when a ton of games get released....

nah, it was reported months ago that it was coming out in October. Good to here a definitive date, though.

God Bless you, Mr. Wood. Being a father myself, I most certainly understand what you did and why you did it. When you are (or soon to be) a father, you really will go to great lengths to protect your children.

RIP, and my family's condolences go out to The Woods' family.

I can't play these games, I get too tense and freaked out. Call me a wuss I guess.

I agree with you. I can watch horror movies with no issues, but can't do the games. Clive Barker's Undying was one that I tried for 5 minutes and that was it.
