News Comments > More BlizzCon Announcement Details
12. Re: More BlizzCon Announcement Details Nov 5, 2016, 13:33 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Diablo 3 is inherently flawed, because of the extreme focus on Primary stat, and overpowered damage bonuses to skills from sets. The entire game is thrown out of whack by the massive damage/hp inflation.

Until those issues get fixed, everything else is just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

*Disclaimer* easily 1000+ hours in D3, all classes combined.

Diablo 3's engine is great, the graphics are fine(to me, at least), but it'll take a developer with some balls to squish down the insane numbers and make more builds viable again.

I don't see that happening with Blizzard's D or E team in charge of Diablo 3, all their top talent is on Overwatch, WoW, Hearthstone, etc.

Speaking of which, I need to finish up Witcher 1 and 2, so I can get to fucking Witcher 3 already, damn. :(

Witcher 3 is gonna kick your butt. Imagine a Skyrim where ALL the sidequests plus the main quests are actually
really
good.

I know, I keep hearing that, and it sounds awesome, but the OCD won't let me just start Witcher 3 without exhausting Witcher 1 and 2.

Love Danny - he plays his part so well, it's hard to tell how much he's acting. Be curious how he turns out in the next Prometheus.


Haha! He's in the Prometheus sequel? He's like more than a few actors, he's always playing the same 'character' regardless of his role in a given movie. Still, I love his delivery, and find him hilariously low brow. Eastbound and Down was great.

Hopefully he doesn't do that sort of act in the Prometheus sequel, it'd be sooo out of place(probably).

Disclaimer: I already preordered this, so I'll be getting furious at Day 1 bugs or having a great time playing relatively bug free.

I'm kinda pumped about the RPG scene still, Torment, D:OS2, Tyranny, all spaced out reasonably well the next couple of months; it should be awesome.

Meh, too little too late, for me at least. Necromancer? Those resources would have been better spent on revamping the damage multiplication nonsense on sets, but oh well.

Pass, but I'm sure Blizzard will still make tens of millions on the Necromancer DLC.

Looks and sounds great, except for the usage based skill system(ala Oblivion, etc.) I'd prefer a standard level up, use points, but I can tolerate it.

Now, all they need to do is avoid the Obsidian curse of massive bugs on Day 1...

I hope it's good. They need to show unscripted footage.

Same... I have already thrown a spear across a battlefield for Odin, hoping this game will end up great, but I'm not going to pre-order, simply because they have shown nothing related to actual gameplay in months.

I'll gladly spend the extra 7 dollars after release day if Steam reviews are favorable.

Either way, bought Tyranny like a day before the sale started.

I may go ahead and grab that one just to support Obsidian, even though I'm not sure when I'd get to it...


I think everybody on Bluesnews has a ridiculous queue at this point, but certain games get bumped way up the list on mine.

When Tyranny comes out in...6 days? I all other games get pushed to the side and I run through that entirely. Same for Divinity Original Sin II when it comes out. Single player RPGs from some developers get top priority!

Speaking of which, I need to finish up Witcher 1 and 2, so I can get to fucking Witcher 3 already, damn.


All my gaming time lately has been on Battlefield 1, Grim Dawn, and Shadow Warrior 2, although SW2 is almost done.

I haven't read the original source material, but the concept art and the idea of Diesel Punk sounds interesting.

Here's hoping this turns out pretty good to great, at least. It's REAL early though.

No, if you buy either one you get the three other games "free". Expeditions Conquistador is well worth having for anyone who doesn't have it. In the rare time its name pops up around here the few of us who've played it always espouse what a great a game it is, and how it's a shame it's flown under the radar. Definitely a hidden gem.


Whoops, yeah, read that quick, my bad. Either way, bought Tyranny like a day before the sale started.

Some good things on sale there, but I think I've finally reached my limit on buying new games... the queue is immense!

I looked the sale over, I either own it or it's too far down the desire list to bother picking it up.

Nice XP system to get D:OS2 and Tyranny though, I could have made really good use of that... if I didn't already own both.

This is a good game, especially with friends. Definitely worth the download to try if you're on the fence.

I'm tempted, but I hear the grind is still utterly ridiculous(random drops, etc.), plus my normal coop group is worn out on games with a ton of grinding... hrm.

Anyone else spot the obvious mistake in the trailer?

No American Flag, bleached white by radiation?

Also, sounds like Clancy Brown

I still need to finish Mass Effect 3.

Finally bought SW:Battlefont when it was on sale awhile back... the game is gorgeously underwhelming. I struggled to get 10 hours into it, just to see if I started to like their design decisions... nope.

Still, the engine and related tech is so good, I'll keep an eye on SW:BF2 to see if they actually make a worthwhile game this time around.

Hrm, did I back this? No it's on yet another crowd funding page and I was too annoyed to make an account. Still, I wish them success, and look forward to playing the game, I just don't know if I want to bother joining Fig.

It's like a 3 second process. Less if you use a password manager with a fill function. Of all the things to complain about.

Kickstarter hasn't exactly been wonderful so I'm happy to try something else that was started by devs.

Well, the other issue is they are listing Q4 2019 as the release date. That feels like basically they are saying they have done almost nothing on the game at this point. Still, the digital copy tier is $33. Because of the nature of Fig I'm tempted to put in a higher amount just to see what happens to my investment, but my cautionary side is thinking that's probably just throwing money away.

Fence Sitters unite! I have about 33 hours to decide, apparently.

*EDIT* Doh! Maximum investor limit reached. That's probably a good sign of legitimacy anyway, so $33 version it is, or nothing.

bleh, too little, too late, really.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile both have way more enjoyable and complex leveling and itemization, with only slightly worse engines.

Better get to work on Diablo 4, Blizzard.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile weren't nearly as fun for me. I definitely want more Diablo. Don't care if it's an expansion or the fourth.

Path of Exile makes me want to slam my head into my desk every time my buddies insist on reinstalling it.

Path of Exile...I stopped playing because I felt the currency grind got out of hand several patches ago, but I like their skill systems.

Grim Dawn is great, they've added a ton to the game, and the Devotion system really fleshes out the weakness of the classic Titan Quest style skill point system. I'm still finding new legendaries and setting up new characters based around those drops.

Of course, no one is going to argue that D3 doesn't have a better engine than either GD or PoE, but what can you do? ARPGs aren't just about the graphics and physics.

How is this not a good thing? I can't tell you how many games on the Steam Store have their 1st video as some sorta pre-rendered bullshit or montage that changed every half second,that shows nothing from in the game, and they do the same thing with screenshots.

Yup, decent change by Valve, plenty of bullshit screenshots these days.

Also; good policy change, 3 paragraph announcement? Halflife 3 confirmed.
