I don't know why DICE even bothers to patch any of their games. They know you suckers are just going to keep giving them money no matter what. Lol!

You're a fucking retard, and the world would be better off without out. You're nothing but negative about everything. I don't even own or like BF4, but I wish I could erase your thoughts and existence from the universe. It'd be a better place.

EDIT: Forgot my Lol!

Why would anyone give them more money for Diablo when:

A: They made enough off of the RMAH to fund a free expansion.
B: They still have not added all the content that was supposed to be in the retail game! The PVP stuff they promised is not there.

People don't have to give them more money if they own the base game. Most of the big mechanics changes in the expansion are free in a patch for base D3 owners. Should be easy to see if it's worth a purchase after trying the changes for free. (It probably won't be worth it)

"Darling, it's a Mr. Death or something? He's here about the reaping?"

I get this reference.

Also, under the Reaper of Souls patch notes, it lists new class skills. I know many things are included for the base game in the patch, but are the skills among them? Or do you need the expansion for them?

I'm not getting my hopes up. I was severely disappointed with D3, but I'm willing to try the changes since it's free to do so. My biggest problem was with the incredibly boring loot. If it still sucks, I'll just keep playing PoE and Grim Dawn.

I bought the alpha about a month ago and put quite a few hours into it already. Really like it so far. Can't wait for Act 2.

I've gone months in offline mode before with no problem whatsoever. Sorry some of you are having troubles, but it's not a conspiracy.

PoE is a great game if you're a "hardcore" action RPG fan. The mechanics are involved and complicated, allowing tons of build possibilities, through passives, skill gems, and unique gear. This is what makes it great for some people, and bad for others.

But it's free to play in its entirety. And if you like it, and have some cash to spare, send some to the devs. They're truly a good company and deserve all the credit and money they get. I suggest extra stash space as your first purchase.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Card Hunter
5. Re: Ships Ahoy - Card Hunter Sep 12, 2013, 23:31 Esoteric
 
It is an online game, it has PvP. And they've stated they're interested in adding a co-op element as well, which would be pretty cool.

I got to about level 10 in the beta, and really enjoyed it. Only stopped because they were going to wipe at end of beta. Glad it is now released.

It's free to play, so anyone who's interested in D&D, turn-based strategy, and TCG mix should check it out, it's pretty damn fun.

Found this infographic on Reddit: http://abload.de/img/gw2yearone6jkfp.png

Yeah, I think they've been pretty damn good at pumping out content at a quick rate, all for free.

Whew, close one guys. Almost thought Valve was going to release a game this year.
Didn't they release DOTA 2?

It doesn't really count since hardly anyone plays that game.

Oh wait. http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

What about Apple and iTunes? Are they going after the ability to resell 99 cent digital song purchases? Just curious.

What do visas have to do with health insurance?

Anyway, whether you're a fan of LoL or not, this is good for gaming in general. The more e-sports are recognized and considered legitimate, the more money developers make, the more they can spend making good games.

Even if you don't like LoL or e-sports, how would it negatively affect you in any manner whatsoever?

And to focus on the word "athlete" is a bit silly, as chess is considered a sport, and the players are "athletes" as well. Same goes for billiards and several other activities I'm sure people would find questionable.

8. Re: Dota 2 No Longer Requires Beta Keys Jun 21, 2013, 13:33 Esoteric
 
Yeah, you still need keys to play. The reason why everyone has it in their inventory (even before this) is because it's free to download and you can use it for spectator mode without a key.

News Comments > RIFT Free-to-Play Begins
12. Re: RIFT Free-to-Play Begins Jun 13, 2013, 08:20 Esoteric
 
I played it for a few months when it was first released, and it's a good MMO in the traditional vein. Trion (at least regarding Rift) has been a good dev company with lots of free, fun content updates at a reasonably fast pace.

Will definitely check out the F2P version.

I really wonder if Microsoft will backtrack at all on the online connection once every 24 hours after the gaming public blows up tomorrow over it. I don't understand how they could be so stupid.

I found this quote on reddit (not mine) and thought it was hilariously true:

"I think that's going to be everyone's response. At this point, basically all that Sony have to do is prove that their console exists and won't actively try to murder the user, and they'll win this generation of games consoles pretty decisively. I don't know what Microsoft are thinking."

So, they going to backtrack or no?

If you're in the mood for co-op, run and gun, interesting loot/modifications, check out Warframe. I gave up on it after 10 minutes before, but after giving it more time, it's pretty damn fun.

EDIT: Oh yeah, it's free. I suggest Excalibur for your first Warframe.

Rift is actually a pretty good MMO and the team behind it has updated it frequently and well. Don't play it anymore but might fire it up again when it hits F2P. Haven't played Defiance, but my experience with Rift was positive, Trion seemed like a good developer who listened to feedback and had good, free updates quite often. Sorry to see people lose their jobs.

I can't understand why people like MOBA games. It sucks. Same thing over and over. Interaction is extremely limited. I mean sure there's tons of different heroes, but who cares... I guess the attraction may be that it's so simple to play. Wow has proven that simple beats "good" in the general population.

I don't love them or something but the itemization, hero skill, teamwork elements and ability to think on your fee make it seem deceptively simple, MOBA games actually have a very high skill ceiling and more strategy than people realize.

They are far from simple but you really need to play one for an extended period of time to wrap your around it, if you just play a few games or watch some casts they don't seem like much.

I absolutely get that there's lots of strategy. I can understand the simple to learn/tough to master angle. I just don't understand why people find MOBAs fun.

It's like chess, except the pieces change every game. And although the goal is simple, the gameplay can be very complex, and there are a lot of variables one must adapt too. LoL is certainly easier to start playing and having fun. Dota 2 takes more time to get in the swing of things. They're not very fun if you have no idea what you're doing, but if you invest the time to learn the game they're one of the more rewarding genres.
