Except that the D1 stuff is coming in an anniversary update, and the Necro pack is something different, and the original article below this one also mentions two new areas playable in adventure mode that will also be coming out.

Two new areas? I'd be excited but then I am reminded about the Ruins of Sescheron and Greyhollow Island which were hyped in similar updates, especially Greyhollow, and in no time they faded in to obscurity because there was nothing else to compliment the content. The only reason you go to Ruins is for the Cube and the odd bounty.

In the end, all roads lead to Rifts and all Rifts lead to imbalance and the same old game we're playing now. They've just found a new way to exploit fans. I suspect the next pack will be a Druid and after that an Assassin with little to no content to show for the game itself.

Maybe they're still holding on to information which will help change or add to the end game grind in a meaningful way. Maybe. I just have a hard time believing they're not completely phoning in game at this point and banking on cash grab fan service to feign interest.

News Comments > Diablo III Classic Diablo Mode & Necromancer Announced
25. Re: Diablo III Classic Diablo Mode & Necromancer Announced Nov 5, 2016, 09:57 Wallshadows
 
At least with an expansion you can bet on deep system changes and further ironing out QoL issues since it's essentially allowed to do so but all we're getting is a patch and a character pack. This is still Reaper of Souls. This is still the same developer which already has problems in regards to balance and diversity. This is a game which has lost nearly all the senior staff which 'fixed' the game.

They had their opportunity to take the story in to new territories with the Necromancer. Exploring the Priests of Rathma and how they are involved in and directly tied to nearly every thing past and present in order to maintain balance but instead went the easy way out by seeing dollar signs without even having to produce any new content much like the Crusader and Westmarch.

They sacrificed moving forward for the sake of character slots, portraits, banners, sigils and capitalizing on a class fans have wanted since the beginning. It would have made more sense if they turned the Diablo 1 content in to its own release, charged $10, and gave some kind of sense that they didn't completely throw the Diablo 3 community under the bus by releasing all of this non-expansion "content" in a game which desperately needs every bit of content it can get for free.

Diablo III Restoring the Balance—Necromancer Overview.

Dammit, the Diablo itch is back again!


Don't worry, since it doesn't seem they aren't adding any additional content other than the Diablo 1 HD stuff, you'll remember why the game is bad in no time.

I just made the minimum specs, but once I upgrade to Windows 10 with DirectX 12.0 I should get awesome framerates and terrific colours.

Don't forget to update to the Anniversary Edition ASAP.

I have a large hunch that they're announcing Diablo 4. Admittedly that's based purely on a tweet from the official account the other week that asked what was your favourite part of D3 using the ThrowbackThursday tag - referring to D3 as well and truly in the past, and not a current game. But hey, that's what I'm going with.

I think that's what we're all really hoping for. I'd be surprised if the Diablo 3 team even has enough developers to produce anything significant seeing as how they couldn't even fix some seasonal achievements.

There's already a legit Necromancer model in game too from bounties.

That said, I hope they do go Necromancer route not only because they were my favorite class in Diablo 2 but because their story and lore is greatly interwoven with the Diablo universe and can be used to progress the story without going off the rails.

Played a fuck ton of the first Delta Force back in the day on dial-up. Was blown away with how open the maps were and how great it looked.

This guy had to go in to the hospital for a suspicious case of Meningitis-like symptoms. Took me right in to isolation after I described my symptoms to the outpatients nurse and the doc told me he might have to do a Lumbar Puncture which would be his third one in about ten years so he was about as thrilled as I was when he said it. Thankfully, the blood test came back ASAP and it's nothing more than 'some kind of viral infection'. Not a cold or flu, but something. I'm not craving flesh either so there's that.

I had a problem where my head stayed on the chopping block looking up at the tower while the events transpired around me. Just sitting there waiting for death I suppose.

Could have been a mod issue though. I like the alternate start but I find it makes that starting series of events a little clunky before you get to Whiterun.

The 1050 Ti basically sums up this latest Pascal and Polaris generation. Retail markup and manufacturers adding frilly bullshit to raise the base price which entirety ruins the market they are aimed at.

... but people still buy them up so maybe they're on to something.

Looks and sounds like a really good game. Curious as to how long it is since it's $20 though.

Your Zero Punctuation link goes to Mafia 3. Sadly, I cannot seem to find a ZP for BF1.

He played the system well enough to last as long as he did. If he didn't have a German tax shelter he would have disappeared after his first handful of films ages ago an all our attention would be focused on Paul W.S. Anderson as the shittiest director in Hollywood.

Beamer wrote on Oct 26, 2016, 11:06:
But has anyone bought a game they expected to love and found it to be terrible? I don't think that happens often at all these days. It's really, really hard to have that happen, especially if you're willing to wait even a week before buying.

I think anyone who bought Colonial Marines still feel the sting, myself included. I was at least expecting something which I could enjoy while being an okay game like AvP 2010 but it turned in to... well, Colonial Marines.

I definitely put on the blinders and fell in to fanboy mode for that one and changed my entire perspective when it comes to pre-ordering. I still pre-order from time to time but I do so without a heap of denial and being willfully ignorant to facts.

Instead of waiting for the review, rather wait for the 75% off discount.

The thing is you can buy the Legendary Edition for 10 - $15 depending on region if you're on PC so nobody on PC should be paying full price. If you know someone who does, tell them to refund ASAP and smack them on the head.

Curious to know why they used an i3-6100T which is clocked 600 mhz slower than the non-T version. Maybe they didn't want to give the impression that an i3 really isn't shit like most think it is even though it hung in there like a champ in the non-wonky DX11 tests.

Calling the Diablo 3 team a skeleton crew is exaggerating. It's probably one guy who is on suicide watch.
