Could be interesting, but I have this feeling that it could be pretty familiar too.

Honestly, I don't know why companies like ea and Activision aren't hunting down the companies ...and specifically the PEOPLE being paid to provide hacks. They should have legal grounds to do so, as it subverts the original design of their software. Maybe that's where it'll eventually end up, but for now, banning the cheaters solves nothing. It's like scolding a drug addict and believing that'll stop the illegal drug trade.

The funny thing is that the community does a pretty good job of addressing things itself when it has the tools but the companies keep taking away more and more control. Activision/etc can't really sue the companies providing the hacks, many are in foreign countries and new ones will spring up to replace old ones quickly.

Can't prosecute or sue them, but I bet a few drone strikes would put a significant dent in the problem

The first one was not F2P and it was not bad. I picked it up on sale and it was a decent Diablo like romp, but kinda meh as Cutter said.

I had fun with it. It's a pretty good ARPG. Looking forward to seeing what they do with the second one.

The giant skill tree is both a strength and weakness of the game.

Once you look at it carefully you realize there's some filler in there that could just be excised and the game would be even more fun.
Filler? I'm guessing you mean the basic stat nodes and such. I don't think those are just filler. It's part of the design that makes this sort of skill tree workable. It would be a mess if every node was a keystone or notable skill.

I have an XB1, but I'll be getting this for PC. I played the beta on both, and I guess I'm just too old cause I cannot play MP FPS games with the gamepad. At least, not without sucking super hard.
Nobody can, which is why you have auto-aim in console shooters and you don't see games where PC players can play against console players. That was tried, and the console players got their asses kicked.

Cool, i'm looking forward to this once its gone gold, until then i'm eagerly awaiting next week and the PoE mini expansion (those vaal skill gems! wow!) and new 4month leagues. As for d3....meh

Basically this. PoE has been entertaining for me lately. Got my first char to lvl 80+ and was able to run mid-level endgame maps. New stuff looks cool. Should be a lot more info coming out tomorrow too.

I've found that joining a guild is a good thing too. I joined up with people from Ars Technica and Inc Gamers. Nice having people to help out, share items and party with.

I don't understand the argument here. Cutter's post WAS trollish and needlessly hostile. I get that some people don't like the fact that others may be recording them, but as it was pointed out, there are already cameras everywhere, so that horse has long since left the barn. Rooting for glass wearers to get beaten and robbed is pretty fucked up either way.

Is the quicksave system in now? (Just curious; I enjoyed the original campaign even without it.)

Yup. And I believe they're retrofitting it into the original campaign too.
Yep, the email says it's there for both now.

Still interested in trying this. Definitely not going to buy without getting some hands-on experience with it though. Hope they get the PC beta out soon, and at a time when I'm not out of town, so I can actually try it.

Two-hander (sword axe what?, bow?) plus spectral+throw (I dont think Ive seen this skill since I last played, is it new??) Ranger?
Spectral Throw is fairly new. Good all-around skill, especially when you combine it with a 2H weapon (except for bow) and Lesser Multiple Projectiles support gem. Probably go either Duelist or Scion (if you've unlocked her).

Yeah agreed, I waited on this one and I'm glad I did.

Same here. They seem to not care to fix their issues, and since I'm definitely a mouse/kb user, I won't be touching this.

I'm waiting to see how P2W it is and how complete it is at release before making a decision. Saw no reason to get in on the KS once it was obvious that money was not going to be a problem.

Unfortunately I also won't be able to count on reviews from backers though. Many have put hundreds of dollars into this and can't be trusted to be objective.

What? So its a try before you buy beta? They must be very confident of their game.

They didn't say it would be an open beta, just that it wouldn't be limited only to preorders. I took that to mean that they'd send out select invitations.

true, if that's the case then I'll just wait for some sort of free weekend.
Yeah, same here. I do want to try it, but I'll be waiting for a demo or some sort of free trial most likely. Unless reviews are just stellar.

this isnt a mod, its a game that licenses the source engine.. which costs the developers money to do

but yeh its a fairly complex idea so some people arent going to be able to understand this

Could you maybe explain it using alphabet soup?

what be soup is alphabet

By the time I buy this, probably nobody will be playing it anymore

It's too bad none of the ARPG games had what diablo 1 + 2 had on release. I can't say I've been impressed by any of them. Path of Exile comes closest to replicating the factors that made the original diablo a success but the loot system and the poor combat means it's longevity is going not be as good.

The reason diablo 2 worked so well is the combat was more involved then what all the ARPG's so far have done. TL2 was especially boring where a majority of the attacks just feel like re-skinned basic attacks.
What's wrong with the loot system and combat? The combat is definitely more interesting than most ARPGs. The only thing that I think really needs improvement is the monster reaction animations.

Hammerfight on Steam. Save 50%.

I suggest steering clear of this one. It is all mouse movement click fest. My wrist actually hurt after playing. You whip a ball around your ship to hit other stuff.....it is boring as hell.
I thought it was pretty fun for a while. The physics of it are interesting, and you can get different weapons and such that make a difference in that respect. Actually requires some skill to do well. It does get repetitive after a while though.

Yeah, they've been disabled. I thought that's what was supposed to happen though. Maybe they'll remove them eventually. Same effect either way though really I guess.
