Shouldn't the definitive experience for any game be the one that is available at launch... Glad I held off on this one ; )

The last time I dropped my Galaxy S4, it 'encouraged' me to upgrade to a new phone, which at the time, was the Nexus 6, while going out of stock, which I realize makes my whole post pointless... Nevertheless...

I really like the Nexus 6, and I imagine the updated model is also nice. The size difference is noticeable, and every time I pick up the wife's S4, I'm shocked at how 'tiny' it feels. No problems with it so far, but I'm sure at some point, I'll drop it and it'll again 'encourage' me to upgrade ; )

I'm really enjoying DX. It's a shame they fubared the ending so bad, as the rest of the game is a blast...


Not sure if you're talking about this one, or the last one... : )

Reviews say the gameplay is good, but the ending is bad. But I've also seen folks say it takes 20+ hours to get to the end, so 20 hours of good DX is good for me, even if the ending is subpar.



I haven't read any reviews since I am more or less going in to it blind but is it a rushed story telling kind bad or cliffhanger kind of bad?

According to the reviews it is rushed, i.e. you happen to bump into a boss fight more or less accidentally, long before any loose ends are tied up, and then the credits roll by.

Don't worry guys... I'm sure the DLC will clear up the story confusion!

News Comments > Diablo III Season 7 Begins
1. Re: Diablo III Season 7 Begins Aug 6, 2016, 11:21 Alamar
 
Was teasing Krovven about Power Leveling me, but I really can't see myself playing this season... Demon Invasions on Tuesday... Legion content on the 30th... I'm a bit obsessive, so I don't imagine I would be able to pull myself away long enough to unlock the stash tab, which is kind of the only point now...

I mean, the point is to enjoy it, and I do love their combat, but once I get the stash tab, my will to play becomes zero...

I remember buying Deus Ex: HR, and talking to an early NPC, which was some sort of hobo woman living near a trash can, who mysteriously had lots of coherent and useful information about the world around me.

Given how I live in a hobo-infested city, that experience was jarringly unrealistic and put me off the game permanently.

Can't tell if serious..? If so, I assume you never played the original DX. It was full of surprisingly well-informed hobos.

Partially kidding, but partially serious. Deus Ex was what, 15 years ago? I've grown weary of lifeless NPC infodumps a long time ago, and it's not my fault that the industry has completely failed to move forward in most directions, except for advancements in UI and graphics detail.

But how many real life hobo's have you talked to? I imagine a lot of them are surprisingly knowledgeable : )

No Man's Sky is basically a single player game. Calling it multiplayer is a joke. The only reason for a internet connection is so they can call it multiplayer.

You mean so you can call it multiplayer - and bitch about NMS for yet another imaginary reason.

Over the years the devs went to lengths to explain it`s a single player experience with optional online element...

stop-thinking-of-no-man-s-sky-as-a-multiplayer-game

...but don`t let this get in a way of your circlejerk

Is it really a circle if there's only one jerk?

I am excited somewhat about the new transmog system, but the class changes not at all. I am still working on my rogues skills and rotations, and now they are going to jumble skills up take away a few and add a few, yuk. I have yet to see an MMO skill rework that was a real major gameplay improvement, usually its just a mish mash of meaningless changes. In this case I think Blizz is determined to eventually release a console version so skills get trimmed, views standardized to be console compatible, etc.

Your comment confuses me... You're having trouble learning the 2 year old rotation, but Blizzard trimming skills is also a negative?

I suggest icy-veins.com for rotation/spec suggestions.. Good format, and if you can keep in mind they're only 95% correct, it's a great resource... Especially now that the core abilities tab in the spell book was removed... Which confuses the hell out of me ; )

I've gone through a few chairs over the last few decades, and I have never had one where I could pull the cylinder out... I have turned the thing upside down, put the star-pattern-stand across a few tables and hammered the cylinder... It's wedged in very tightly...

Also, the problem with WD-40 is that it's not so useful when the liquid is also unable to get in between the pieces wedged together...

So in short... Good luck ; )

Blizzard better be prepared to meet Retribution and any Rogue players feedback. It's one thing to have it kept to some in beta but it's another thing when it's a live release and everyone can see just how bad they've wrecked certain specs and classes.

I can't put enough distance between me and my Ret Paladin out of fear that I might catch a disease.

What's the problem with Ret, precisely? I prefer the new rotation myself, but I couldn't comment on the numbers... Is it a numbers thing? Which would be tweaked if it's really an issue.

Something I understand is Botting for relieving the grind game.

But I've never understood full on cheating like Autoaim and such.. I don't see how people enjoy it. It must be a griefer thing.

Agreed on the cheating confusion...

When asked if I cheat, my response is simple... I like to win too much to cheat... Which is backwards to many people with the 'at any cost' to win mentality... For me, cheating invalidates a win, and again, I like to win : )

Almost good enough... What's the point of having a limited time demo, on a game that's already complete?

When it's just like every other demo that exists forever, I'll consider trying it, at which point, they might even make another sale... Otherwise, I'll throw it on isthereanydeal.com and pick it up in 2-3 years... Also note, I don't care about the MP, so there's no rush to get in on that action...

The G in GIF stands for Graphics, so I pronounce it using the same way as the word it stands for. I could see saying JIF if the G stood for Giraffe, but IT DOES NOT.

I defer to the creator of the format and pronounce it JIF out of respect and appreciation for the endless years of service.

Along those same lines the battle still wages over the pronunciation of "Gib and Gibbed" from John Carmack and company.

wtf... I never would have guessed it's Jib and Jibbed... Insta-Jib just rolls off the tongue... : P

Anybody that wanted to play Destiny, most likely already did on the consoles.
I don't see the point of releasing this game on the PC years after it's initial release.
Just keep your pocket change Bungie and erect a few more DLC instead of half assed pc port. It will probably be more profitable

I probably would have played the game if it had been on PC long ago, but I'm never going to buy a new console just for a game... I've had more great PC games to play than I have time to play them anyway. I wouldn't buy it if they released it now because it's too little too late. I'm going to encourage other companies who treat PC gamers better. Like others said, I won't be missing much anyway.

Man... I have only ever purchased a console for one game... Super Mario, Sonic, Soul Calibur, Not sure on the more recent (~15 years) systems, but then Bloodborne... : )
