So if you're patient and can see long term, the game is worth it and a blast, but if you're impatient or just looking for your next fix, then you're just not going to stick with it.

Rather, most people realize that when the game design is inherently shitty and boring, a patch isn't going to fix things. Like sprinkling diamonds on a turd...

So you see, there is a serious difference. RMT has a limited use in GW2 and does not result in a Pay 2 Win situation. RMT in Diablo 3 is just another way for Blizzard to monetize the game and will lead to serious Pay 2 Win situations, especially in PvP.

Except Diablo 3 isn't a competitive MMO. If you play it like Diablo 2, there's no more incentive to pay 2 win than what already existed in the D2 community.

My goal is not to affect blizzard, but to affect potential buyers

Good luck on your huge waste of time. As with anything so polarizing, people have already made up their minds and all this arguing is just pedantics.

As long as people bitch about... blizzard will regret this decision. Each and every news post of em has to be forever spoiled, thats the only way they learn, because google results are everything.

Wrong. Sales numbers are everything, and you are a vocal minority. You think they're going to add LAN to SCII just because people bitched? Nope.

This is about as lame a fucking reason as I ever heard (on top of your incorrect crap) and still DOES NOT indicate a valid reason for dropping a OFFLINE SP Mode that was a staple in D1 and D2.

And there's the rub, Diablo D1 and D2 are not online only games, D3 being a continuation of the story should maintain the franchise standard.

You know what's a great reason for D3 to be online only? Blizzard wants it to be. It's their game, they can do whatever the fuck they want with it.

They're not deceiving anyone. They're letting you know months in advance so you don't waste your money. You can either buy it and deal with it, or move the fuck on and stop bitching about it.

They won't be subsidizing monthly fees. They'll have a cash shop that while not quite as necessary as in most F2P titles, will still be necessary enough to influence many players to spend money every month. They were able to get by without that in the first GW because of the instanced design (it was basically Diablo II but with 3D towns instead of text lobbies for meeting up with other players). A persistent world is going to take a lot more hardware and a lot more bandwidth, and their previous revenue model isn't going to be sufficient.

Not true. Bandwidth and server costs have become incredibly cheap nowadays. If you look at the financial statements for MMO companies, these monthly cost comes out to be tens of cents per person. Considering that they will release an expansion a year or two from now, the box price itself is enough for them to profit.

People keep on saying that this is like KOTOR with multiplayer. Except it's not. The gameplay, atmosphere, story, and pacing is shit compared to KOTOR.

I hope they keep the tension and fear of the original in. Also, it looks like they are focusing more on building unique soldiers with RPG mechanics, a la Jagged Alliance than the generic expendable soldiers of X-COM. Still looks great, a first day purchase for me with what I've seen so far.

Still not enough though to get me to buy the game. I've heard too many times, from devs and those who are enthusiastic about a game, how great it will be only to be let down.

You can apply that pessimistic attitude to every game that will ever be made and stop gaming altogether. No one is promising that GW2 will be great. Just different enough to be worth a try.

Pleasantly surprised by Alan Wake. Remedy's storytelling and presentation has only gotten better since Max Payne.

I keep hearing how GW2 is going to be the second coming of online games.
I tried the first GW, played it maybe a week and a half after it first came out, never touched it again.
This left me with pretty much no interest in a GW2.
What, exactly, am I missing about this game that it is supposedly so great?
I've heard this sort of hype about a few other games that didn't pan out (Warhammer Online and Age of Conan to name two), so what exactly is so great about GW2?

GW2 replaces the traditional MMO quest structure with an upgraded version of WAR`s public quest and Rift's system. Multistaged dynamic world changing events scale to the number of players involved and encourages teamwork. People who've played the game say its a much more organic experience, one that allows you the freedom to explore the world instead of being herded from one quest hub to another.

More skill based combat requires aiming abilities and active dodging of enemy attacks.

No fixed roles as Tank/Healer/DPS. Instead, the soft roles of control/support/damage are spread among the entire group as every class can heal and rez.

Immediate access to instanced PVP with premade max level characters via in game FPS style server browser.

DOAC style World vs World vs World PVP where you fight for your server against 2 others. Server pairings change every 2 weeks depending on your server's performance, ensuring balance.

Finally, the people making GW2 have been very open with the community. The public and press have had many opportunities to play their game, and with their recent closed press beta, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

I guess people here are just very passionate about their games. The anger, hurt, and resentment towards Blizzard is so strong that it's almost like a bad breakup.

Blizzard has changed. The writing on the wall has been there for a while now. It's time to part ways, but don't let that make you bitter and cloud your judgement. If you guys can ever get past the flaws of the new Blizzard, they still make some damn good games.

The bitching is largely to express my unhappiness about said service and the things it lacks that it once didn't lack.

Diablo 2 had all that i listed above. So what is there not to understand? This game is still called Diablo 3, right? If they rename it to dunno, WoW Light, i might be less lofty in my rants.

Diablo 3 is a separate game, a sequel that continues to offer a lot of what made Diablo 2 great for many people. Unfortunately its missing things that are important for you.

You did not commission Diablo 3. Blizzard does not owe it to you to make Diablo 3 the way you want it. In the end, Blizzard is allow to do what they want with their own game, as long as they don't lie or deceive gamers. And they've done a good job letting people know exactly what you're getting into so that you don't waste your money.

What constitutes Single player for me in D3?

Nobody can join, see me playing, find me in any way or add me in anyway, or talk to me online via B.Net
No items allowed that were acquired over the auction house
No auction house
No Characters created outside Single Player games

So what's the big deal? Blizzard is offering a service that does not meet your requirements. They're letting you know ahead of time, so you can avoid wasting your money on something that you don't want.

I don't understand what this incessant bitching is about.

The problem with the online requirement isn't so much that most people have internet connections. Some people have pretty horrible internet connections. Some folks live in the boondocks or other areas where net connections are spotty.

The real problem is that people still think of Diablo 3 as a single player game. The problems of connection reliability is something that PC gamers have dealt with since the beginning of online gaming. If you could deal with it before, then you can deal with it now.

I am expecting Diablo 3 to absolutely tank in Europe. Unless they have massive infrastructure prepared on release, i can already see the shitstorm ^^

More likely Blizzard will sell a bazillion copies, just like they always do. Who the hell played Diablo 2 offline anyways? The MP co-op, persistent BNET character and item hunt was what gave the game its longevity in the first place.

Here's the thing, Double Fine has a mis-start or two (Brutal Legend which I enjoyed but wasn't a big success) but is a fan favorite (Psychonauts, Grim Fandango, etc.) while Obsidian has a history of flops and unfinished products. Their last project Alpha Protocol started okay and then just trailed in to a train wreck which by the end was so broken it made no sense. Never Winter Nights 2 and it's add on had broken stories even KOTOR 2 was broken and took a fan patch to fix. I'll kick in for a company where I feel there's a good chance of my contribution creating something great I'm not going to kick in for a company where SEGA are so scared of their last product they pushed it back because it was just too broken.

Technically Double Fine didn't make Grim Fandango, or any of Schafer's classic adventure games. If you're going to give Double Fine credit to Schafer's classics, then you need to give Obsidian credit for Urquhart, Avellone and company's classics too, which includes the likes of Icewind Dale, Fallout, and PS: Torment. Now that's an amazing track record, as fine as you can get in the industry.

Not to mention that New Vegas was fantastic, whereas Schafer's latest work has been lacking.

People who say they don't want or use origins crack me up. It's the same thing as steam.


The concept may be similar, but there is a huge gap in functionality between the two. And even if Origin was as good or even better than Steam, I would still be reluctant (to put it mildly) to install it. Face it, EA has not done much to care for or support the PC gaming community, and many of their games and decisions seem greedy and short-sighted.

Steam may be DRM, but it's functional, it's always being improved, has a great selection of games, great sales, a proven track record of reliability, and let's face it, most peoples' games are already on Steam. So why, when Steam already has everything I want, would I install Origins? So I can play such gems as Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, or the Battlefield games? Sorry, none of those games have enough appeal for me to bother.

So you can stop saying that Origins = Steam because your ignorance has been and will continue to be exposed when you do.

Just curious, but what functionality does Steam provide that Origin doesn't?

Connectivity isn't the issue. You have to be connected to play multiplayer anyway, and BF3 is primarily a multiplayer game.

The problem is when they require an always on connection for playing single player. And just because YOU think an always online form of DRM is trivial, doesn't make it that way for every other person on the planet.

Also, you are not the arbitrar of the future, so you can't say for certain that always online DRM games will increase in frequency.

It is about connectivity. The more ubiquitous high-speed internet becomes, the less reason to keep your games fully offline. We're seeing it with the current PC games. We're seeing it with the growth of casual online games. We're even seeing it with the current console generation, with single player games like Demon's Souls. I don't know what kind of future you imagine, but we're going to be MORE connected, not less.
