Study says 18 percent of US drug users bought from Silk Road.

Idiots who throw out headlines like this should be dunked in a giant heap of horseshit till they consume a ratio of pounds of shit to amount of words they've written in their "study".

One look at the "Online questionnaire" makes you realize assfools like this actually exist... common sense is gone people are fucking stupid as hell these days, from the creation and absorption then to subsequent regurgitation of bullshit.

It would have to be TRUE 1:1 unlike past "1:1" pseudo implementations.

In a normal PC game with the mouse, every movement it unlimited in speed. If you wiz your mouse to the left, your character turns as fast as you moved the mouse.

On a console, speed is coded to be limited. If you hold your turn hard to the left, you turn at the max speed coded.

Mouse implementation on consoles *always* restrict you to that coded hard turn speed. The only way around it would be to maximize the sensitivity and be happy with whatever max speed they give you, but you will never have the true freedom you experience on a PC with a mouse / keyboard.

However, since the new consoles are really just sub-par PC's, they may be able to do something more significant with the controls -- maybe even eliminate the hard speed cap especially with the PS4 since it's linux based and more accessible even when it's not supposed to be.

Still any m/k would better than a console controller for FPS's, but based on that video it seemed the hard cap was present.

You wouldn't lose the tv with the wiiu. That's the only advantage of that second screen. Should probably have been 3ds capable instead. Bundle them, stand alone packs for those with one, but require one.

The tablet is a really poor excuse for a second screen and has awful battery life, I would much rather they had the 3DS which can be taken to places other than the house.

I have the nyko power pack, the tablet has lasted over 10 hours in full use, cost me like $20.

We (my family) decided on the Wii U this Christmas. Didn't give it any thought the previous year. As PC gamers it was the only console that looked attractive with its first party offerings. My wife and I ended up buying two of them; one of each bundle. Also picked up A. Creed 4, which has the most sh*t frame rate for an HD console I have ever seen, and Super Mario 3D World which, as stated, is downright AMAZING!

As a parent you have to open up the electronics to make sure they're updated! Oh, and then make sure the games run 'okay.'

Here here Neuenc, it's a parents responsibility to 'test' those things, sometimes for hours! haha!

It took everything I had not to install Rayman Legends and update it, kids would most certainly find out scrolling along and they are absolutely jumping out of their shoes for it. We played the challenges often before release - that's the kind of innovative (on the Wii U) title we need more of.

We sure have been enjoying ours! Couple points worth noting:

I bought 8 titles over the last month on sales for about 60% less than other full consoles are charging, damn near paid for my Wii U (which the unit is cheaper than the 'other two' anyways) in savings. And we don't pay a ridiculous 'subscription' fee every month.

We are able to play our original Wii games on it + virtual console.

More than enough hi-def 1080p power, and can play it on the gamepad making it a portable console -- including watching netflix or amazon shows.

Other than that really looking forward to Super Smash Bros 2. That alone will be worth the console.

We've got more than our money's worth. Hope you xbone/ps4 dudes get yours!

Used to dig loom back in my amiga days. I don't play adventure games anymore (might try forge just for nostalgia sake and see what it's like), but loom, gobliiins, kings quest, loved them at the time.

Nah you're just super defensive about POE related.

I like certain aspects of both games and have enjoyed both for different reasons. It's not a holy war or something.

Nah, I'm just critical of the shit they call D3 cause they are fuckovers of gamers.

I couldn't care less if people like the games I do. Some like it, some don't. You state your opinion, I state mine.

People will decide on their own.

You really think there's "people who think they own a game they didn't even develop"? Cmon man, you have at least reasonable arguments and responses -- that's a silly attempt at an insult.

As for the snobbery part, fine call it what you want. You win. Merry Christmas.

PoE learned from Diablo 2 and they learned damn well.

PoE learned from existing F2P models, and they learned damn well.

PoE will continue to improve based on what they've learned and will learn.

PoE has nothing to learn from Diablo 3 short of screwing people over so they can make a ton more money. D3 is not a role model to any ARPG in any aspect except the 'throw money at it' one.

I've lost four characters in the last two years in PoE. Two were the specific targeting desync (only in PoE) before I know how to deal with it properly, other two were just bonehead moves on my part.

Currently have about 10 fully leveled in Nemesis/HC that haven't died since open character wipe - desync is not a problem once you know the game and how to avoid it.

However normal desync/rubberbanding will pop up on both PoE and D3 like in any game occasionally.

As for combat / animations... each to their own. D3 is just over the top physics, smash/hit shit over and over with bodies flying, nothing special. PoE combat isn't as flashy, more straight forward due to the vast amount of mob possibilities and affixes which can kill you the second you don't pay attention, which makes it much more enjoyable due to the sheer amount of character skill choices and consequences of those in a specific situation.

PoE combat enters unknown territory once you get to endgame. If you play even one map you'll be on your toes the entire time even if you are highly overleveled - all kinds of random mobs, affixes and possible ways to get destroyed very easily - no walk in the park, completely dependent on your choices.

MattyC wrote on Dec 19, 2013, 23:14:
Do you mean unrestricted? You can play around with all kinds of builds and get the one that works for you. It is PoE that locks you in and forces you to relevel another character to try something different. I don't mean that to dump on PoE, I just don't see any reason for every ARPG to lock you in, variety is good.
When you can respec your character on the fly like you can in Diablo III, the only thing that differentiates you from anyone else playing your class is your gear. That just isn't enough for me.


Exactly. Not to mention the fact that 90% of the skills in the game are useless. There are a few set builds and thats that. The real reason why PoE or D2 are so fun is because you can have tons of viable builds with each character and the gear is part of that but its not 100% of that like it is in D3.

When people post stuff that someone with even a tiny amount of experience in the subject knows is completely false, you should rethink how you respond.

Only the blind can't see the vast difference between PoE and D3 with regards to character customization - PoE truly has it, D3 pretends to.

There has to be better solutions out there than this garbage.

Undoubtedly. But you know what? No one was doing a thing to come up with better solutions. No one was interested in trying to fix what was very obviously broken and getting worse every year. While it isn't the best solution, it is the only one that anyone has bothered to put forth. Had something been previously done to begin to fix the huge problems with health care coverage in this country the ACA would have never been necessary. Nothing was, so we're stuck with this for now. Hopefully it will be fixed and tweaked down the road, since it is undeniably a mess in its current state, but it's a start. As far as cost goes, health care costs were already skyrocketing before the ACA. It was going to happen with or without it. Rising costs is just a fact of life we all need to deal with.

Oh cmon, 85% of the country had active health insurance with the most innovative and sought-after healthcare in the world - lets see where this shitty Obamacare takes us (even marginally on-the-ball minds know its a pile of shit that will taint everything it touches).

And while I'm sick of both parties the republicans DID put forth their own versions but the liberals, like always, are steamrollers of an intentionally naive ideology at any cost.

It still got a lot right, like combat. Much more snappy and responsive than something like PoE.

And much more hacked with a ruined economy built upon a character 'customization' that is full-on laughably restricted... unlike PoE.
