News Comments > More Diablo III 1.0.5 Details
5. Re: More Diablo III 1.0.5 Details Sep 15, 2012, 06:52 Armengar
 
after the 2h weapons patch change it is now quite viable to use 2h weapons on most characters. I bought a 2h hammer for my WD from the AH. Cost me 40k for a 980d 340int 320vit 6% life steal hammer.

haters are just hating for no real reason. D1 and D2 werent too great on launch. I remember the battlenet nightmare. D2 item generator? Made loot finding stupid.

Sure D3 aint the best and it aint no D2 but raging over patches is just plain stupid. Its a game, play it or dont there are plenty others out there if you dont like it. Im still having fun and thats all that counts for me.

as for 1.05 the changes still make sense. Those with top end gear will notice no difference at all, in fact they should end up even harder due to 25% drop in damage. those with really crap gear will lose out and the majority will notice no real difference. That being said, items that have resistances on them will mean more to someone as the overall damage output has dropped. It does mean that you can think about changing the "must have" runes for diversity.

If you have a reasonable TV then this is already possible for the majority. It depends what he means by "for a tV". If it is a better UI for steam then that will be good - saves using a wireless keyboard and mouse (with a 15m HDMI cable). Clone display works quite well on my 6850 and both my TV and monitor are the same res (1080p)

hopefully its a better ui.

I remember desert combat (mod for BF 1942). That was epic. If this DLC is as good as desert combat then it looks like I will break my origin embargo too.

I think id rather clean my scrotum with sulphuric acid than use this. Their shitty DRM has accounted for me purchasing precisely zero of their games since they started. Even though I love SH and settlers.

I'll pass. PLayed it to death on the PS1 and that is where I will leave my memories. The difference between this and say minecraft will be the fact that minecraft has always looked like that. FF7 has good memories that will simply not stand up to my expectations.

News Comments > Diablo III 1.04 This Month
21. Re: Diablo III 1.04 This Month Aug 11, 2012, 02:41 Armengar
 
Sounds ok but not enough to bring me back yet. For all the talk of AH getting cheaper it isnt really. You still need many many millions to get kit that can make you survice act 2 & 3 inferno. My poor witch hunter is still a shadow of his former self in inferno as opposed to the pre inferno powerhouse he was.

I'll wait till 1.1 or the DLC and see how that goes. Still, it isnt like im paying any monthly fees so these updates are effectively free.

Like many others I have had fun with D3 although the major nail in the coffin was the increase death costs. This pretty much stopped me and my friends "fooling about" and having fun. This isnt WOW so why did they care how much you died?

What they could have done was take the HIGHER of individual or group MF/GF that would help. That way the tank can be a full tank for the group and still benefit in some way whereas the poor sap who has GF/MF gear kiting away will get a better benefit

same as everyone else.

Not played for a few weeks now. Got to act 2 inferno as a barbarian and hit a wall. Cant afford to die and im sick of trolling act 1. I'll come back when things get fun. possibly when DLC rolls out. Until then i'm not complaining, ive had over 100 hours of fun with it, have 3 60 chars and a couple in their 30's so thats a good investment for 30 - i'd be gutted if I paid full price though.

Im not in the USA im in Europe. Been here for years too :-)

Selling digital copies is not something I am terrifically bothered about. Giving my digital copies to my friends is a different matter though.

BG good but I doubt I could go back to second edition now. It took me a long time to forget those XP tables and I dont intend learning them again.

News Comments > Steam Hardware Survey Results & Bug Fix
18. Re: Steam Hardware Survey Results & Bug Fix Jul 26, 2012, 04:17 Armengar
 
I have a black edition dual core AMD. It will unlock from 2 to 4 cores (all stable). In dual core it will OC from 3.1 to 3.7 with a minor voltage increase. In quad core I can OC to 3.2 only. Rest of my system is pretty frugal, ATI 6850 (OC a bit), 8gb RAM running at the max my mobo will - only 1600 (9-9-9) but the prize is the SSD

Civ5, SOTS2 and shogun 2 are the biggest eaters of CPU that I have (looking at perfmon in the other monitor) and I still get a better "turn by turn" performance in dual core OC with SSD than quad core without SSD (I use steammover)

Sure if I have bags-O-money(tm) then i'd love a better system but until then its cheapy mc cheap cheap for me.

My claim to fame is that I was one of the people who could luckily skew the results when I ran steam one day on a multi cpu new server (I was curious ok!)

News Comments > Quoteworthy - "Windows 8 is a Catastrophe" - Gabe Newell
113. Re: Quoteworthy - Jul 26, 2012, 04:02 Armengar
 
remember vista and how it flopped? Enterprise didnt buy it. See windows 8? If it remains locked down as much then enterprise wont buy it. W7 will stay (well XP probably will too).

How could an enterprise with a KMS key for instance buy a metro app and install it on 5000 PCs if it is "store only"? There will be a different way to install apps.

edit: indeed there is. Server 2012 will check to see if you have a licence to deploy metro apps. Current 2012 RC doesnt work properly though (it seems).

I never use my real name on the internet. I never use my real DOB or personal email address either. I have a disposable full-of-spam hotmail accout for that.

Paranoid I might be but thats how I roll.

News Comments > Op Ed
22. Re: Op Ed Jul 6, 2012, 08:58 Armengar
 
echoing previous comment.

My 60 barbarian will be pretty much the same as your 60 barbarian. And there lies the problem. AH has no diversity, all the expensive kit is geared towards certain cookie cutter "builds" builds meaning gear. At least in diablo 2 it would be quite rare to meet 2 similar barbarians.

As for endgame, so what. Ive spent about 150 hours in D3 with surprisingly little grinding (act 2 inferno witha barbarian - on hold). If I quit tomorrow then ive had my 30 worth of entertainment so thats fine for me.

it went the opposite way for me. I used to like the randomness until they complicated it with things like needing to eat etc. I would just leave my game idling for extended periods (if I died from creepers then so what). I didnt like the exploding creepers that could decimate your "fortress" etc so stopped playing. Some people like it still but it has gotten too complicated for me personally.

News Comments > Diablo III RMAH Issues
72. Re: Diablo III RMAH Issues Jul 2, 2012, 03:49 Armengar
 
It is all subjective though. I am having fun playing current games. I dont *generally* buy on launch an almost never preorder. Diablo 3 broke the rule. Me and my friends played D2 to death. We have played D3 quite a lot. Maybe 150 hours so far? Thats a lot for me (who has played TF2 for about 500 hours from orange box launch and ive been an admin on the now defunct GTFO servers too).

If I quit D3 tomorrow then it owes me nothing. Have a 60 barbarian in act 2 inferno (ouch). 600 natural resists, 18k natural dps and 39k health (about 5k natural armour - thats my next upgrade). I still get pwned by unluckly rolled elites. I cannot tank everything anymore. TBH ive given up mostly with the barbarian - I use him to farm gold in act 1 now. Rolled a witch doctor and having much lols, im not gonna farm any other characters, when it gets too hard im gonna switch to a new one - after the last one I quit.

I payed 30 for D3 preorder from Tesco. I will spend precisely nothing in the RMAH. For the hours of entertainment it has been a bargain for me.
