News Comments > New Diablo Plans Revealed?
1. Re: New Diablo Plans Revealed? Jul 1, 2016, 20:57 Cram
 
"Josh Mosqueira, who joined Blizzard in 2011, had been serving as game director of Diablo 3. He replaced former game director Jay Wilson in 2013. Wilson recently left Blizzard after 10 years at the studio.

In an email to Polygon, Blizzard confirmed that Mosqueira has stepped down as director of Diablo 3 and is no longer at Blizzard."



Damn. Good luck to him though. He took almost everything Wilson got wrong, and made it right. Took everything Wilson got right (combat), and made it better.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Winter Patch
3. Re: Guild Wars 2 Winter Patch Jan 27, 2016, 00:48 Cram
 
It's an OK balance/feature patch. Joined a late megaserver working on the Shatterer. I approve of the changes there, as well as the balance changes they made on several classes.

I appreciate their "EDIT" attempts at ongoing "/EDIT" support on what is a non-sub MMORPG. With every one of these patches, I sometimes feel like while they do take one step forward, they take two steps back. Their patches seem to consistently break other things, other systems. Seemingly non-related systems. Not much evidence of this in this patch though, yet. Jump pads during Shatterer are a bit f*d. It takes them forever to fix these problems from their own patches. Further still, there are still about 500 bugs from launch in the game, unaddressed.

These people absolutely care about their game. They do. I just don't understand how the company, Arenanet, works. If this was Blizzard's WoW, granted a Sub game, a lot/most/all of these similar issues that crop up would be instantly fixed in WoW. Many still stay unfixed in GW2, three years later.

But I do love the game. Problems not withstanding.

Am I missing something cause it doesn't look like it's been visually upgraded as the PC Gamer article mentioned.

You're not missing anything. It's emulated PSX rom on PC with maybe one or two, out of the dozens of, features ePSXe has.

My favorite FF ever! Unfortunately I've already played it so much that I don't think I could bring myself to do another run-through; there's just not that much character customization. Still, if you're nostalgic for JRPGs and never got around to trying FF6 then go for it!

I still listen to the orchestral versions of the music on a fairly regular basis. Some of Uematsu's best work IMO.

EDIT: Listen to Dancing Mad for example.

You know what? I've listened to dozens of remixes of that song and the best one is still the original. It was designed for the SNES sound chip. The music in that game is great overall. It's also the only FF game I like. But like you, there's no way I can bring myself to play it again.

The Black Mages remix came close, in particular the electric guitar solo'ish part during the final/Kefka phase part of the piece. However, I agree. The original has never been surpassed by any remix, from OCRemix to Uematsu's remixing attempts himself.

I mean, if they had to remake one, why didn't they remake best-in-class FF6 rather than

Do you honestly believe SquareEnix has any capability of remaking perfection? They would ruin Final Fantasy VI trying. Let them take FFVII and ruin that.

ROM hack that fixes the sound to be SNES quality.

This exists? I shouldn't be surprised. Now I know what I must do; it has been too long since I heard the sweet subtle tones of Kefka's laugh.

Whatever. As I said before: no thank you to you loyal player base is in my opinion a very bad move. Would it have hurt them big time to say "Guys, you stayed with us from the beginning, here's $5 off from the expansion for you"? But the only guys who got a present is EVERYBODY ELSE but the veterans. Is it really so difficult for a lot of you talking about "entitlement" to understand that it would have been the right move to show some gratitude to people that supported you from the beta?

But to each their own. I cannot and will not accept such a behavior and will therefore no longer buy anything with ArenaNet on it. Hey, I might be one of the lucky guys and - after the release of the next expansion - might get this one for free.

Everyone that bought the game before August 29th got this for free AS a thank you to their core players. Free accounts did not. An otherwise what would have been an 800 gem ($10USD) outfit for free.

Royal Guard Outfit

But hey, they probably should have bowed before us and kissed our feet too. /s

Nothing for me then... I would have prefered the cow portal.
Cow portals aren't anything special, but regardless, you can open one yourself at any time by placing a Bovine Bardiche (legendary polearm) into the Cube.
I was talking about the "Not the cow level" event in May. Is it the same as this?

That is what you get for using a Bovine Bardiche in the Cube. This however contains the Cow Queen. The random Cow Rift level has an event in it that looks like the Jar of Souls event room. Doing this will spawn the Cow King. They however removed the achievement for killing the Cow King (when they did the cow event) and made it a Feat of Strength; which is really lame, as I never got the Cow Rift prior to Season 4 and I was "on a break" when they did the cow level event and wasn't interested anyways as they had removed the achieve.

Both the Cow level and Greed's Domain are a fun short break and a good source of materials. But they have already lost their luster on me. I keep Puzzle Rings, but I don't bother keeping Bardiche's anymore as they take up too much space.

The amount of gold coming into the game is ridiculous now. 2nd season I think I had 500-700 mil at the end (this amount seemed reasonable). 3rd season I had 1.5 bil. This season I already have over 3 billion with the end of the season nowhere in sight.

Indeed. New patch is amazing, but like every new patch there is always something that needs to be fixed. Pushing GR's is an awful mess in half a dozen ways. Ghosts (which are getting nerfed) are awful. The maps are terrible. The density is definitely broken. Above all else, I need Blizzard to do what they promised they would when they announced D3 was online only. DRM THE SHIT OUT OF BOTTERS and CHEATS.

Gold is in a good spot, I think. It just needs another sink, something that could be rewarding if you spend the gold.

Cow level is, imo, a waste of time. I would go out of the way to get a Cow Rift, though. Love those rifts.

No kickstarter, no game. A very simple premise, one which I understand perfectly and support wholeheartedly, seeing I loved every game Larian ever released. Except DC, but that's because I'm not into RTSes.

I would like a sequel to D2 Ego Dragonis / Flames of Vengeance. The Damian storyline is over 12 years old now, and needs to end ffs.

Is this game still considered "skill" based?

Or did they introduce skill/gear grind, aka time played>skill.

Time played gets you rare skins/legendaries/ascended items that just barely boost your stats etc. Skill > Played.

So I know this is beta (beta is beta), but I think this is the third beta using the same area of Verdant Brink, and the same events are still completely broken in this beta vs the previous ones. What's worse, they are part of a event chain, and break after you've already spent a significant time on them. I actually want to complete them for the exp to unlock further gliding masteries and try them out but I'm stuck just grinding monsters. I'm bored to tears and done with the beta. This worries me that knowing if they can't get these events sorted out, who knows how broken the state of the game may be within the next four months (they say it will launch this year). I also tried to make a couple other chars now to try them out, but I was the only person in the silverwastes map and could not complete the very first event by myself to move onto Verdant, need more people. Pretty infuriating.

I will say that Verdant Brink looks amazing visually. Probably the best looking map in the game, just from what I've seen and I don't think I'm saying that just because the zone is new. The detail is insane.
