"Diablo 3 is killing it right now. Diablo 3 is a really fun game"

Did he forget the /sarcasm tag or the "...said nobody ever" line?

Anyways, i lol'd.


Wake up, they made Diablo 3 good finally. It's better than every other action RPG on the market and a worthy successor to Diablo 2. Nothing else compares, they're either childish kiddy games like this one or games with horrible graphics and boring combat like path of exile. Diablo 3 is the only game that hits all of the right notes to make a great package and they finally fixed up builds so they're more personal now. You should stop trolling and check it out.

Once again we have the fannie TrueTroll in another thread praising his Damiibo 3 by attempting to trash others.

Anyone who comes from D2 knows better, doesn't matter how many times you repeat yourself.

Another poorly made port.

It has a hard coded 60 frames lock, bad port.
It has a narrow and unchangeable FOV, bad port.
It has a load of controls unmappable, bad port.

I really wanted to jump in on this, but it's an automatic no-buy from me when I see these core issues over and over again.

No really they tried and failed with Torchlight.

It's definitely not as good as Diablo 2. No other ARPG is as good as Diablo 2: it's the pinnacle of the genre! But saying they failed isn't very accurate. It's a good game, just not Diablo 2-good. But for those of us who safely have several hundred hours of D2 under their belt and want something similar, TL2 fills that want aptly. I think it's pretty unfair to say they failed with the TL series.

This is a crazy person here if he has "hundreds of hours of D2" and thinks Torchlight 2 is similar and satisfying in that regard.

Couldn't be more off the mark -- D2 hours are suspect.. Shifty

I would love a 3/4 perspective sci fi ARPG. The only ones that really come to mind over the last 20 years are Space Seige and the Crusader series. Wish Runic had done something like that.

It would be very cool to have things like a crap ton of weapons, teleporters, force fields, enemy robots, mutants, xenomorphs, ship levels, planet levels, space levels, etc. etc. There's so much room for variety.

Is there one out there I'm missing?

Hellgate is just like that, but it's first person and third person. I've said this a million times here, but it's my favorite ARPG of all time and it has a much better system than D3 in my opinion. Well, it's not exactly like you say. It's not in space... But it's definitely futuristic.

Hellgate Global being the only persistent FPS ARPG (after all the changes/booing) made it appealing right away to me, but it was a solid fun game. I hopped on it occasionally all the way up to the last couple years.

One thing I've been hornblowing about for years getting a properly done FPS ARPG. Borderlands could take that to the bank in western markets, but they're going Asian, so who knows.

ARPG fans need to start realizing and pointing out there's a world of difference between an economy driven arpg and a coop/single player arpg.

You simply cannot compare any single/coop (TL, Fate, Grim Dawn, Helsing, Sacred, etc) to an online player economy (PoE, D2/3, Marvel Heroes) in the same sentence. They are similar in gameplay, but one is a few hour distraction with yourself or your buds, the other can become a veritable lifetime of play. One is easily hackable, the other is tight. One is offline, other is persistent. One has no economy, the other is driven by it.

It's like comparing Skyrim to WoW, or NWN to DDO -- just not even in the same league because of the mentioned differences.

Also, I do agree Marvel Heroes is well done. It's geared toward younger players, not too difficult to grasp most things but just enough obscurity to keep them interested - plus superheroes!

I read up on the paltry short $15 Pillars White March part 1, and I won't be supporting their nickle and dime business model.

Not as bad as what Sword Coast is looking to be, but still not worth encouraging.

Stasis on the other hand might get me playing point/click adventure games again.

The average user has 20 passwords, that's golden - I have over 2000 in my keepass that goes back over 20 years - and they are all pretty much the same way you setup yours Reflex, can "rememeber" each one unless it's a beta or something along those lines.

And I can't remember the last time I ever did a microsoft "update". Used to be windizupdate if I needed anything specifically at home. Then no updates at all - especially in corporate where clones and specific setups were a must.

If Krowen loves Amiibos and D3, great -- kids need to do something other than insulting people on forums for no good reason other than insecurity. But he should realize that two of those things are fine, and one of them renders his words worthless.

And you guys brought up PoE.

Shows how little you guys know about PoE. There is no sync issues anymore they built a little thing called lockstep in and NO ARPG has anything like it - it's glorious.

I don't care which one is "best", I had both on my radar for a very long time, but this is they way it played out like it or not.

D3 is a baby arpg, nothing like d2 and nothing unique about it. PoE is the king daddy, true successor to d2 and filled with innovation. You don't have to agree, it's a fact.

ALSO, holy shit, they just announced today that the base game (what they call Core GW2, the game as it exists now) is FREE for everyone!

GW2 Core is going FTP?

Couple limitations but ya it's on now. Kid is overjoyed now he can get all his other buds to try it.

D3 will never be an ARPG champion, it's a limited fun distraction at best. There won't be any amiibos coming out for it Krowen, it may be popular with kids but it's an adult rated game -- so curb your enthusiasm.

Calling it now, this game is going to be a DLConsilitis nickle and dime halfass game. It has "DnD" tacked on to pull in interest, and will happily drain the pockets of the average couch gamer because it's what they expect.

Already their "Deluxe" version for a whoppin $25 more includes core things the game should include like tiles, monsters, significant stat items, etc. They've not show character creation, omitted classes/races.

The writing is on the walls, and it's clear to me where this is going.


A trailer like this does makes me think of shite like Dungeon Siege 3. But I've seen gameplay vids that looked good enough to still be excited about this.

Hell, in the campaign vid they mentioned Deudermonts demise, Wulfgar's bar, and even something about Drizzt. Fuck yes I'll buy this.

Believe me Quinn, I too get all reminiscing about DnD and that kinda stuff stikes a chord with me -- there's no shame in admitting I'm a DnD fannie. However I refuse to support half ass titles, as that's exactly the reason we keep getting all these shitty DnD games - they simply don't have to try hard at all.

As always, I'm hopeful. But man I'm not getting a good feeling here...

Everyone has opinions, few have the needed experience to qualify their opinions, and fewer have solutions.

Linux and a hacked Win 7. I've said it time and time again -- if you aren't doing it, you're doing it wrong. And if you are an early adopter of Win 10, you are doing it very very wrong.

If you don't give a shit how things play out, then it don't matter - but don't pretend to give a shit and don't try to lecture those who truly do.
