I'll buy Diablo 3 when the pirates come out with their own offline server. Otherwise I'll spare myself the headache since my internet connection is crap. I have free internet living on a Navy base but it is also bogged down nightly by overloaded bandwidth so I have tons of packet loss depending on how heavy it's used.

Blizzard already made a Diablo3 FPS. It's called World of Warcraft.

Why didn't I play longer? That's a good question. You see, the game requires an always-on Internet connection, and the servers seemed to set themselves on fire a few hours after I downloaded the beta, and this dumped me from the game. You not only need to be online to play, you need to connected to Blizzard at all times. So if your connection goes down, or if their servers crash, you can't play. Not even single player. At least this means I can sleep tonight! I know this is a beta and these things are bound to happen, but it's still an ill omen.

sigh...

The books are great but there are so many characters it can be hard keeping up with it all. They are still worth reading and great reads though. I still need to pick up the latest book but it's been about five years since I read the previous books so I'm debating re-reading a few first.

Raid finder: designed for the casual players only. The purpose of this system is to let the casual players easily find a raid group and enjoy it with the dungeon-finder system. The difficulty will be easier than the normal raid, and the loots will be less powerful. The difficulty of using raid-finder will be easier like: bosses have less HP, complicated mechanics removed, damage to player lowered.

I always wondered how they would do a random raid finder. No matter how easy they make it though there will still be mass wipes and rage quitting lol.

My 77 year old Mother uses Netflix and is a movie watching fanatic. I'm not looking forward to helping her create another account so she can keep getting DVD's and streaming though. And wtf is up with not keeping your movie ratings on both sites?

I subscribed when it first came out but they never sent me the first issue so I ended up cancelling and getting my money back. I know when I did that it was entirely through email and no snail mail.

I distrust any publisher that holds back content from a game just so they can make a buck selling it as DLC. It's one thing to make an expansion or something but the DLC nickel and diming just pisses me off.

Yes I want another X-Wing/TIE Fighter too but maybe the first-person shooter will be an Outlaws sequel? Doubtful but I can dream...

One thing to keep in mind is that it seems all armor can be worn by every character assuming they met the level requirement. By that I mean, my wizard can wear chain, as can my barbarian, as can my monk. However, the appearance of the armor always changed to suit the class. So for example, my wizard playthrough has a relatively highly leveled up blacksmith, so I craft everything with her, then put it in my stash, and every character can pull the gear out and equip it, and the stats of the armor didn't seem to change. Makes me wonder why the status of crafters in the game aren't persistent across characters.

Weapons were different, and there were obviously some weapons that could only be worn by certain classes. However, things were still very flexible. My wizard could wield a 2h sword, or a hatchet/shield combo, or a wand and an orb. There were only a few things like hand wraps for monks, and shivs for demon hunters that were very class specific.

Seriously? Any character can wear just about any armor? I guess I'm just old fashioned but I prefer class armor restrictions...

Well, we had this 17 years ago so it stands to reason that 17 years from now maybe a gamer generation will be the talking heads and tv news will have a clue. It's optimistic I know. Maybe 34 years?

Man, you can just go through the entire game holding a vending machine on that difficulty, huh?

No --> , there is a way to not be kill-on-sight in the police station if you talk to the guy (he was a former Sarif security employee) at the reception desk the right way.

Also, failing a hack will still make the console beep and aggro nearby guards even with boxes blocking the view.
