Enjoying the Witch a bit more, but it really sucks when you find a skill you really like, but the only way you can change to that build is by restarting a new character or buying a large amount of passive refund points.
Yes, this is one of the main issues with PoE as far as I am concerned.

I haven't seen it as a very big deal. You get 6 respec points from missions in each difficulty level (Normal/Cruel/Merciless), so that's 18 there, and by that time you've probably collected a dozen or so regret orbs too. If your build is so screwed that that's not enough, then you probably should start over and try to learn a little more about what makes a good build.

You don't have to min-max to get into the endgame content. You just have to make a reasonably solid build. That won't get you into the highest level content, but it will help you learn the game, and you'll be doing the low to medium level maps.

If you want to just grind out a character without having to learn much or make any real decisions about it, then you'd probably be happier with D3. That's why it's nice that there are games that cater to different types of gamers.

That story about the ants being smuggled in is weird. No idea why someone would want to do that. Harvester and Paraponera ants (AKA Bullet Ants). Definitely wouldn't want to open those tubes.

Owell, I'm looking forward to this and hope it's fun out of the box. I'll probably get one playthrough in while the modders are busy doing their thing. Then I'll get down to the real business of getting the game modded up for a better experience. And probably another after that, once the next wave of mods are out. For all the bitching people have done about all of these games, they've always provided me with a lot of entertainment. I always get more than my money's worth.

Maybe wait and see how the balance turns out. How many RPGs get the balance of all skill options right on the first try? Pretty much none of them. I'm sure there will be some changes in patches. But not everyone wants to build for combat effectiveness. Some people like making quirky builds just for fun. From what I've seen, the build options will let you do pretty much whatever you want. I see it as an improvement over the previous games.

Since it seems there is now little point to intelligence/perception for questing from the leaks (and seemingly only for building things and not talking your way out of things), max endurance/strength is best ... so 10 STR, 10 END, and then 4 Luck. It only requires 3 luck to get Bloody Mess, Max Bloody mess also kills surrounding opponents, max iron fist (double melee damagex4), max endurance skills, max adamantium, max toughness, max life giver (auto-heal). Ultimate in cheese, definitely some OP easy-time skyrimmy skills in there.


In previous games, you could get Stats to 12+, is this still possible does anyone know? (I am not talking about temp buffs, if you made an item 10 at the start, there are things along the way that give you perm stat increase, or a weapon gives you +1 something - is that in this one?)

Basically it now lets you choose between adding a stat point or perk, so you should be able to max them out. Especially since there's no level cap. I believe there are also items that will boost a stat, but not as many as in previous games.

Issue I see here is that your SPECIAL stats usually all start at 4 or 5 and then you have additional points to spend. Here, all stats are 0 and they give you 21 points (which puts you at 4 for all stats), which is very shy of previous games. Not sure if this is supposed to be this way.

EDIT: Sorry, they start at 1, with 21 points to assign.

ZiggyD did a short video explaining how character progression works now, and how it's different from the previous games.

Shit, glad to hear his surgery went well and he's recovering. He's doing very well, considering the shoes he had to fill were basically the size of football stadiums.

Yeah, I haven't been watching regularly lately, but I've liked him in the half dozen or so episodes I've seen. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but I think he's doing as well as anyone could hope to in following Jon.

TSA pitiful, huh? Okay. Here's what I propose... we remove ALL security from ALL airports. All of it. Not even regular cops should patrol airports. Ever. Let anyone and everyone get on an airplane with whatever they want to carry (so long as it fits in the overhead bins and under the seat in front of you.) No screening, no bag checks, no nothing.

THEN, when planes start exploding, I'm going to call up the clueless morons who complained about the TSA and say, "I hope your wife and kids were in that fireball, motherfucker."

Dumbest thing I've read today. And that's saying something since I just managed to read through some comments on an article about Ben Carson's latest gaffe.

I'm pleased as punch it did so well, better than I would have guessed.

Can't wait to follow their progress...

(Totally forgot we have some sort of Hong Kong add-on coming up, until they said they were waiting on the folks to finish that before they could move to Battletech.)


Oh yeah, I had completely forgotten about the mini-campaign they were gonna add. I may do a second play-through of HK before that hits. I'm doing a mage in my current play-through (which I'd never done in previous games), so I'd kinda like to try an adept character next time through.

Looking at the screen shots and the leaked videos, like Fallout 3, this doesn't look like something you'd see 200 years after a nuclear apocalypse. It looks more like 20 years.

How many nuclear apocalypses have you lived through?

I understand the idea behind trying to get a return on excess cash (and if they don't have to bring the cash back to the US to be taxed a second time, all the better for them)

No, that's not how it works. It often wasn't taxed the first time either, and corporations get a tax credit for any foreign taxes they've paid on that income. They aren't being taxed twice.

I picked up two of the Shadowrun games during the Halloween sale and I had so much fun I went ahead and "preordered" this. I can't say I'll be touching the PVP mode at all but I'm psyched for the Merc campaign.

I'm almost done with Hong Kong now, and I think it's been the most fun of the three SR games. Really looking forward to seeing what they do with the BT merc campaign now too. No reservations at all about backing this one.

Congrats to HBS! I don't personally have any interest in PvP (or co-op for that matter), but I hope this game serves as a good foundation for more BT games in the future. I want to see company-level engagements on larger maps at some point, with more complex missions that require that level of force.

Same here. Glad they hit all the SP goals though! Hopefully it does well and they expand upon it later.

Youtube and other sites can't survive if no one is paying them to place advertising. Now do I think it is their own fault for pushing the limits of acceptable advertising? Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that these are businesses, not charities.

They dug their own grave the second they decided to allow ads that would execute remote code, or install malare and so on. That's the reason why there's been a booming increase in people using ad blocking software. I'll be you ask the majority of people if they'd allow ads, and they'd say "sure but...x time I got ransomware" or something else is the reason I block all ads now.

If they want people not to use ad blocks, they need to take the responsibility themselves to vet people selling ads on their network, or offer restitution to viewers who've had malware installed and had a serious loss of data or require a reinstall because of their fuckup.

Exactly. Businesses are not entitled to anything. They need to make their business work for their customers, not the other way around. I suspect they'll find out the hard way if they go paywall, most people really won't care enough to follow. Although YouTube Red may not be a bad deal if you value the music aspect of it. It may be a drop-in replacement for another music service for about the same price, depending on how you plan to use it.

It's plenty relevant. It just doesn't make up bullshit that the SJW professional victims for money crowd lives off of.
It doesn't address the same population, so it's not relevant. Kinda by definition.
