This already exists and it is called Star Trek New Horizons.

It's missing a lot of stuff, is still very broken, and causes huge stability problems. All of which are acknowledged as problems, especially in it's 0.9 alpha state. Couple of more years and it'll be good.

Edit: Oops my mistake, thought you were commenting on the base game and not the Star Trek Mod.

Basically gist of what i said was that I have 176 hours in Stellaris and its my favorite 4x game.

Hilarious. I wonder if Kobe and Shaq are still mad at each other from their Lakers days.

As a life long laker fan, I'm happy to say that they arent. Shaq often refers to Kobe as the greatest scorer of all time. They've both said they've patched things up. Shaq goes on to say that he also regrets leaving the Lakers as they could of won 3-4 more championships together quite easily in their careers. A telling moment was Shaq at Kobe's last game and his look of amazement and awe of Kobe dropping 60 when Shaq teased him that 'he has to get me 50'.

Been playing the beta, its a lot of fun...however the 'special abilities' are so half baked. Its like they are trying to compete with overwatch or something and its just not working. They need to either flesh them out or they need to remove them completely (I'm a fan of the ladder since they have no place in quake). Shotgun & Double shotguns are horrible as is the railgun...hopefully they give them some 'ooomph'

Drop often? Obviously your definition of "often" differs from mine. I have 200+ hours in my main character right now. Now granted, that puts me only slightly above "total noob" in PoE terms, but in those 200+ hours I found about 20 Orbs of Regret. Which to me doesn't seem like many considering the character currently has 100+ passive skill points. And the Orbs of Scouring which can be used to purchase them from the vendor, I have found about twice that number. So the 64 Orbs of Scouring for 40 Orbs of Regret isn't likely to be available to me in the near future.

After every big patch (every 3months pretty much) they give an entire free character skill reset....If you have problems with currency dropping i'd recommend aiming for more increased rarity mod on your gear.

All 13 windows phone users are steaming mad.

I have 1 of those 13 Windows Phones (Lumia 950XL). Don't knock them until you try it (if you haven't). I've used iPhones and Androids; each one has there positives and negatives, but I've liked the WP the best. I have/use the whole ecosystem, so everything (phone, Surface, desktop) communicates and syncs nicely. It baffles me it isn't more popular than a 3% market share.

Rumor around the virtual camp fire is that the MS Surface team has been working on a 'Surface Phone' that will - supposedly - have x86 architecture. If they can't/don't make any (enough) headway with this, I think they'll be done in the mobile market.

This, over in Europe they are more popular (and in India from what i read). I have a cheap 640xl that i bought for 100$ after my flagship 500$ android phone died on me. Its been way better than any android or iphone i've ever had, which have all been flagship phones. My wife rocks the 950 and loves hers as well. All I care about on my phone is maps/internet/translation/office/camera, and it does all those things better than android or iphone. I dont care about social apps or games on my phone, and if i want one then I load it on my android tablet at home.

As for them stopping updates for older phones, its no different than samsung/htc/sony/apple stopping updates to their older phones. Personally I'm really looking forward to the Surface phones.

Well, in fairness, it's probably about like getting to Act 2 in Nightmare, but yeah...

It takes me about 5 hours to get to level 40. Of course I know what i'm doing so perhaps thats longer for others. For D3 season 10, I felt (although didnt count) it took around that long to get to the middle of act 2. Maybe I'm a lot slower in d3 than I am in PoE though...

Regarding the no classes, ascendancy's are pretty much your classes and are definitely build defining. As for collecting scrap in d3, you can craft good weapons really easily with essences or just currency orbs (especially while leveling) if things just dont drop for you. The problem I have is that people are sleeping on such a great game and just spout all kinds of misinformation about it. I guess why even care so much is that GGG (Grinding Gear Games) is pretty amazing with its support and inclusion of its community. They set the standard for how a free to play game should be with its ethical transactions no pay to win, all content open for everyone. Its the only free to play game I've actually ever liked and for my tastes, easily beats 'pay to play' games.

If you dont like it, then you dont like it. However you should actually try it before you make that determination. Getting level 40 in poe is like just finishing act 2 in D3.

its almost uniformly from people who've never given it more than a few hours of playtime, which is a real shame

There is nothing innately impressive about the skill tree in PoE, and the game allows for respeccing so there is practically zero difference between that and the way D3 handles builds except for tedium and time.

There isn't a single feature in PoE that actually makes the game more fun to play than any other generic ARPG other than the price tag.

Proving my point. PoE's 'skill tree' is completely passive with the exception of a few skill jewels. Its skills come from the gems that you mix and match in combinations (literally hundreds of combinations for a single skill) that change how the skills work. Add to that uniques/jewels that also can modify skills and the best crafting/currency system I've ever seen and you get something quite unique. I've played D3 quite a bit, I'm currently playing season 10, but it is more to wind down and decompress. D3 classes and skills require zero brain input, whereas PoE's builds and mechanics and pathing require a large investment of time and brain power. PoE's mechanics are certainly not friendly to the new player, that much is for sure.

POE plays like shit and looks like shit
POE is a boring shit fest.

Diablo 3 is fun and made by a professional company with great content and combat

POE is a free to play shit game with retarded micro transactions and lame ass story that Blizzard haters gravitate toward to say they are "cool"

Im noticing a trend with SHIT and POE

You sound like you've never played the game. The micro transactions are all cosmetic based (no pay to win), not that they are even needed. As for plays like shit I'd just say that you've never actually leveled up a character, as there is a VAST difference between a level 1/10/20/30/40/50/60/70/80+ char (which by the way you can reach level 80 in about 20hours of playtime if you know what your doing). The amount of skill combinations and pathing nodes is what lends people to compare it to Diablo2. I see PoE get hated on all the time on Blue's and its almost uniformly from people who've never given it more than a few hours of playtime, which is a real shame. As its by far the most complex and rewarding ARPG out there.

If you want to turn off your brain, play Diablo3. If you want a great single player experience that looks like the original Diablo1 in its grittyness play Grim Dawn. If you want to play the most indepth and Diablo2-esque spiritual successor play PoE.

Path of exile is about to release 6 new acts.

Diablo 3 is releasing a rehashed class.

Path of exile is free.

Diablo 3 is still overpriced.


Love me some PoE, it truely is the successor to Diablo2.

Not cool, regardless of how they try to 'splain it. Why not a TM for "Cyberpunk 2077" the video game? Once again this just shows how drastically the USPTO needs to be overhauled.

Perhaps so they can have a sequel and have already bought the rights to past Cyberpunk #### content?
