Just to support the guy who said not every gamer pirates- I don't pirate a thing. I actually enjoy paying for things these days.

News Comments > New WHQL-certified GeForce Drivers

So far, I've been unable to use anything newer than 296.10 on my PC. If I try, any game I run goes to black screen, and I have to reboot. I think it has something to do with over-scanning the display, but I can't figure it out. Very frustrating.

I have this issue with Farcry 3. Tons and tons of other people have the issue, but it seems no one on the planet seems to know why it's happening.

EDIT: Sorry, I should say that if you're getting a driver crash, it could be because of one of these many causes...

Why it's common with FC3 though...

I just want it to work. I've had black screen crashes since the day I bought it. I think I've played a grand total of 15 minutes.

I don't know a single person who thinks Apple stuff is uncool because older people own them. I'm sure there are some, but it's hardly the masses.

One of my favorite games ever. Don't see the need for a remake with "HD" graphics that end up looking worse, though. I can just boot up the original in Dosbox...

If it's in DOS, it's not the original.

Trying to put people liking the game down to 'kids' and their lack of knowledge is moronic, plain and simple.

No it isn't, kids don't have a gaming history going back 20+ years. So even a shitty game will seem AWESOME because there is nothing to compare it against in their limited lifetime thus far.

It's the same way how many console call of duty players can't get into quake because they never grew up playing Quake 1, quake 2 and quake 3. They will say things like "I can't get over the graphics bla bla bla". That is a sign you're not really a gamer, since gameplay is not what you play games for but aesthetic cinematic experiences aka cod and it's clones.

It's a totally rational and valid observation that applies to millions of people.

Aside from you trying to fill me in as if I'm 4 years old, is it an observation or is it not? You say, "no" as if your opinion is fact and then you say it's an observation. Unless you have a white paper with some stats on it we're not talking fact. You're right you have a rational observation, but it's still stupid to throw your angst against a portion of society when all you have to go on is a guess.

Hmmm....

Gee, I don't think you managed to generalise enough there

One of these things is just like the other.

I've been around Blues long enough to have seen who's here. 'Tis a bit different from summing up millions of gamers.

Maybe people were just really disappointed with the game. Blues rocks, you suck.

The reality is most kids who love diablo 3 have no barometer for game quality, hence bluesnews is filled with older experienced hardcore gamers who played the first two games.

Gee, I don't think you managed to generalise enough there. You might want to try a bit harder and start breaking things down to skin colour.

On a side note, you make it sound as though 'older experienced' gamers are those that played D1. I'm a golden age gamer. The Diablo series was very late on in my gaming career. If you use Diablo 1 as starting point for those who are experienced and therefore have a, "barometer for game quality", you're opinion on the topic is worthless.

I imagine only a minority of Diablo 3 players played diablo 1 and 2. Since Diablo 1 + 2 were primarily PC games and they sold a lot less than world of warcraft. World of warcraft pulled in a new generation of kids who's gaming tastes are the most tasteless and banal in all of gaming.

I think imagination is all you have to go with on that one.

I realise some people don't like D3. Some people had specific expectations for what it'd be and it didn't live up to those. Some people just don't like it for some reason or another (the way it looks, plays, or sounds) and some people just don't like the balancing. Fair enough.

But that doesn't take away from the fact that some people actually get entertainment from it. I play it once and week with my brothers and it's pretty much what I recall from D2, but with easily accessible multiplayer. We ignore the auction house. We know the game isn't perfect. We remember the other Diablo games weren't perfect either.

Trying to put people liking the game down to 'kids' and their lack of knowledge is moronic, plain and simple.

I must be in the minority for actually loving Diablo 3. :/

You're likely not- Blues is just the extreme whiner centre of the gaming universe. I agree the game isn't perfect, but even though I enjoyed 1 and 2 quite a bit, I'm getting just as much enjoyment out of playing through 3.

Apparently it was something to do with the game itself not selling that well. So, they didn't invest in more singleplayer.

Kinda dumb if you ask me.
