Wow, let's rush out and buy this! Rolleyes2

I know exactly what's going to happen when you publicly admit you didn't playtest your own game at all...

Why not just link directly to the youtube video? We need to see it on this socially-overworked pukefest of a website? Thumbsdown

For a significant group of non-Internet users, it is commonly understood that access is not yet available, or it is available but unaffordable.

The cost of Internet services is, of course, often a major factor.

Maybe you should have just read it instead of "fixing" the headline.

A fructose molecule is a fructose molecule. It's not like it knows where it came from.

Except it does know, and your body absorbs natural fructose (fruits and vegetables) and HFCS at completely different rates. When regular fructose is absorbed into the liver, it creates glycogen (stored glucose). When HFCS is absorbed into the liver (usually in much greater amounts), it creates fat and causes all sorts of medical problems.

required taxpayer funded state troopers to rescue her.

Usually you have to pay out of pocket for any rescue services.

"Preferred" is an odd choice of words. You can say more people chose male-shep, that's fine... but they would have had to actually play both ways to say they have preferred one performance over the other. The information that the fem-shep performance may have actually been better will never trickle down to 90% of the people that play the game, certainly not enough to sway break the gender lines away from the "default character".

I find the romantic aspects of some of these games to be dis-engaging, as if there is time for this dating crap while the world is about to end!

YEAH BRO! Huh

It's simply a matter of preference, but hey... if you can't look at something without thinking about where you put your dick in it... that's on you.

People basically want closure from a game/genre that is designed not to give any

This really hits the nail on the head. ARPG's like this are simply not meant to be finished, so the natural result is eventually you just get bored with it and "move on".

I do agree that the itemization continues to be an issue with D3, especially the balance between different weapons as you said. I think that their damage, toughness and healing "ratings" are doing more harm than they are good, because they don't even add up with the actual damage outputs in the game. I can understand why STR/INT/DEX are tied to the defensive stats they are tied to... but some of it just flat out needs to be re-tuned. You can acquire Armor and AllResist outside of the main stats, but not dodge? Why?! OK, accepting that limitation... why can't I get more DEX for my INT or STR characters without crippling them completely?

I'm glad they got it to the point that it's at with RoS from where it was at launch, but as was said below... a lot of old design decisions are keeping them from fixing D3 completely.

I don't see the need to make that crazy leap. I would simply rather watch a female hop around on my screen for 20+ hours than a dude. I prefer female singers too, so I guess I should just cut my balls off!

I don't really understand the soda article, and it's potentially really misleading. There is a large difference between HFCS (chemically extracted from corn) and the "fructose" that naturally occurs in fruit sugars (fructose + glucose = sucrose, which is old school naturally occurring sugar).

Not identifying the different fructose sources in that study basically makes it completely useless.

Death is a fairly obvious "fail-state" for a game from a design standpoint. It encourages and engages the most primal instinct in nature, stay alive. The death of other things inhibiting your path to victory also seems fairly natural to me. Where I get lost is when video games focus too much on the simulation of reality, rather than suspension of reality... then you get unfocused gore and violence.

If Mario had to clean his shoes, or left bloody footprints all over the world... would it be as popular today? I don't think so. I call it a byproduct of hyper-realistic graphics, but the culture of gaming has certainly changed drastically in the last 30 years. Everything humans touch starts out with good, happy intentions... and then human nature takes hold and... they don't say "sex and violence sells" for no reason.

LOL DUDE. No.

Not at all.

The cap on mob difficulty just didn't match the level cap after about level 40, and it took an ungodly amount of time to hit that cap in the first place. You had no option but to play through the same leveled content over and over, you couldn't really wander into an area that was "too hard for you" at all unless you just ran past mobs during your first 2 playthroughs.

So... Which reasons were you talking about?

You like looking at dudes? I don't. I'd rather a femshep option in every game please.

I don't buy the "I can't get immmersed" crap either, as if "believing" you are a ninja assassin time traveler is any more or less realistic or engaging than pretending you are a female doing the same thing.

News Comments > Diablo III to "Heal" Broken Achievements
7. Re: Diablo III to Jun 11, 2014, 10:27 descender
 
What else is there to do? Endlessly grind for better loot? /snore At least achievements give you something else to do while you are mindlessly making things dead that are too easy for you to be fighting.

The problem with achievements is that banner symbols and patterns are a total shit reward. If they contained more entertaining or useful unlocks, they would be something people would actually want to "achieve".

The other problem here is that the achievements in D3 are just grindy and completely uninspired. Only about 1 per class requires any actual thought or effort to accomplish.
