This graphic tweak really helps make the games graphics not look like ass.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/3967848172?page=1

The difference between the default muddy/blurry graphics and the sharper effect offered with this mini mod is night and day.

I was never a huge Diablo fan but it seems like they made changes to the way Diablo II was setup just for the sake of trying to be "different". Why piss in the soup and not just serve up the same soup with slightly better looking visuals.


Wait, they're using DX9? Jesus Christ. Is it still 2003?

third-person?

third-person

Stab die console scum

Might have more to do with 3rd person being more suitable for lightsaber combat than with consoles, DummyDawg.


Indeed, no one was bitching about console scum in the Jedi Academy days

I like the idea, and I like the look, but it looks a little too twitchy. It doesn't seem to have the lumbering, walking tank feel, or the careful maneuvering that mech games are known for. It looks almost like Quake with a cockpit.

This is my concern too. It does look neat, but I was hoping for something a bit more... giant robot-ey.

Think Armored Core or Virtua-On. There are precedents.

or getting trained in Velketors. : P


Haha, trains in Karnors Castle were the worst. And with my enchanter I controlled each and everyone, so that I actually hoped for one and told my group everytime to pull one. It was epic. Too bad they changed this game too much.

Rookies. I was training in Castle Mistmoore while you were in diapers.

Play on servers with active admins. It's been this way since at least NetQuake. Of course, part of the problem is that EA/DICE don't give you the same administrator and modification options as Quake derived games, but c'est la vie.

The Futureweapons billboards in BF2142 didn't bother me at all. EVE has has a similar concept(billboards at stargates), but they front fake ingame products and news. If they're forced interactive ads then I would have a real problem.

Apple and all those companies are proof that we need to eliminate free trade and get back to fair trade - i.e. tariffs. Reading articles like that just makes me angry on so many levels. And the saddest part is when you get these right-wing dingbats chiming in about how the problem is working people actually asking for a living wage and not their corporate masters raking in obscene amounts of profits at the expense of them and the environment. This exactly the sort of shit that makes me see the world as moving to the cold, dark, dystopian future instead of a bright and sunny one. And why is that? Because the pigs who support these companies are more concerned with the latest toy than doing what's right. Well, they're all going to work up broke, hungry, and cold sooner than later.

Unless you're willing to support unlimited immigration of skilled labor, your proposal would condemn the developing world to pretty much perpetual poverty, as there would be no clear path to doing anything other than menial labor and subsistence agriculture. Way to go.

Why is that our problem? Globalization is killing our economy. If you can't take care of yourself, you can't take care of the homeless guy either.

While I enjoy the game for the time being I see them comeing to a point where its putting out content for lvl 50s or fixing all the crap that is wrong with this game either way they have their work cut out for them.

The game hasn't even been out a month. Whose fault is it that there are people with too much time on their hands who feel the need to get to the cap right away?

Whose fault is it that there are people with too much time on their hands who feel the need to post on forums? : )

Some people like to level... Others like to claim they've put in 200 hours before touching the 'main quest line' in some games... To each their own...

Myself... I'd have a few 50s by now if I hadn't gotten burned out some... I have a 41 and a 32, and the 32 I haven't touched in weeks... The 41, I mostly log in for about 30-60m a day to do some space missions, and maybe work on the class quest lines with the wife... And some crafting.

In short, as with just about every other new massive, getting to max doesn't take a lot of time... Quite a bit less than people (here) claimed they put into Skyrim in launch week (or two) : )

-Alamar

More like in short MMOs are too easy. Need to go back to the EQ days. You'd be level 15 by now. Maybe

Meh, no hope for this really. GRAW1/2 for PC actually had some semblance of squad tactics, but the PC versions were also developed by a separate company, not Ubisoft. The Tom Clancy labelled games are basically severed from their tactical squad based heritage. No hope for this game or R6P. Fuck you Ubisoft and fuck you Red Storm

It should be noted these are solely to provide bugfixes and improved performance for an upcoming Rage update, so unless you're for some reason still playing it, you can leave these alone. On the other hand, if you are still using 11.x Cats, the initial 12.1 Preview release had a number of performance tweaks, and they're as rock-solid as one could hope for.

Indeed, corrected BF3 BSOD issues I had since loading 11.x

But earlier this year, Sony said the Vita, which retails for the equivalent of $317 in Japan, didn't need to lower its price in light of the competition from the 3DS.

“We have a very good product at a very affordable price,” Sony Consumer & Products Services President Kaz Hirai told Bloomberg in August. “There’s no need to lower the price just because somebody else that happens to be in the video game industry decided they were going to.”

PS3 LESSON : UNLEARNED

Good job, Sony. How you manage to stay in business with idiots like this running the ship should by now be considered the ninth wonder of the world.

Creston

Bigger problem right now for Vita in Japan is that there aren't that many high-profile games for it. You'd think they would've had a Monster Hunter game announced by now to lure in Japanese gamers, but it looks like Capcom's content to leaving that franchise to the 3DS now (not surprising, as the 3DS' hardware isn't that different from the PSP's, meaning they can re-use assets with impunity).

The launch lineup for the US in late February looks better, but what the system launched with in Japan is pretty thin, and lacking in properties that are major system movers in Japan. The closest thing they have at present to that would be a new Hot Shots Golf game, for crying out loud.

I haven't been paying attention to it. Are there plans for new MGS Portable Ops or a new portable God of War from Ready At Dawn?

Hoping some good oll internet law degrees drop in but...

As Verizon changes their billing policy doesn't that give you the 30 day right to back out of your contract? Something with a contract being changed you are free to back out of it without penalty?

Or since it's your choice how to pay it doesn't matter? They're just passing along the charges to their customers?

It's not a change in fees, it's just a fee for a one-time payment method, so it won't alter the contract.

I pay all my bills online, and I prefer to do it with a one-time credit card transaction, but more and more sites are charging a fee for this. With a credit card I'm protected if the information gets stolen, and by not making it a recurring charge I'll actually keep an eye on my bills.

This is what I did to get around this: Setup a free checking account with no overdraft and only the minimum to keep it open($5) and linked it to my paypal. When I pay online I either use paypal or this checking account(via electronic check, which Verizon allows for no charge) and I xfer the cash in to the account when I need buy something. I avoid charges with credit cards, I avoid potential for unauthorized transactions running up my CC bill, I avoid giving my primary checking account to anyone, and I limit my potential exposed liability to the minimum amount to hold the account open.
