How the hell is there $8000 worth of DLC for a console version of a FIFA game?

That's some slick DLC abuse, Microsoft and whoever made that game.

Bought this a while back. Despite being a huge XCom guy, I just couldn't get into it.

I'm tempted to try it, for 4 bucks, but from the Steam reviews it sounds as though there is a little too much random nonsense mucking up a good turn based game.

Yeah more MOBAs. We can never get enough of those amirite?

If a week goes by and a new MOBA isn't announced, I feel as though life no longer has any meaning.

I already pre-ordered my copy. From watching all the gameplay videos this is a pretty safe bet if you were a fan of Enemy Unknown. Day 1 mod support is just icing on the cake.

Well, based off the last game and expansion, the vanilla game will be pretty to very good, and the Long War mod will probably make it amazing. It's not really surprising that they brought the Long War guys in like this, they really added a lot to EU/EW, plus the Firaxis guys talked up the Long War mod quite a bit the past year or two.

Hopefully they will use some of that time to write a more original plot.

Of course I wept like a baby during episode 7, but still.

Not that I disagree with their sentiment, but I had to disable noscript to see any of their page.

Christ harlock, you're such a douchebag

He's consistently been that way for years, through several aliases on this site.

What's hilarious is how much that woman's opinion videos seem to bug some people. It's just another viewpoint... relax.

Well, that's a shame. I don't watch her videos, or really watch any critique videos to be honest, (put your shit in written format, I read fast!) but I never like to see trolling assholes win even a minor victory.

Hrm, I was so psyched about this game when it first came out in Early Access, and it still looks and sounds awesome, but they've done some weird(in my opinion) things to the gameplay, and it just isn't as enjoyable as a game anymore to me.

Foiled by Early Access/beta gameplay yet again.

Hard to really tell the gameplay from this weird trailer, but Super Patriot, Cable, Bionic Commando, and dozens of other anime and western comic characters want their arm back.

The key here is that although the page was 'quickly' removed, it still got at least $810 dollars worth of contributions from random idiots.

Ah, the internet. When will you ever stop fleecing suckers?

News Comments > Diablo III Season 5 Begins
19. Re: Diablo III Season 5 Begins Jan 17, 2016, 18:56 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Well, Alpaca San, opinions will differ of course, but I don't really consider stash space as something that should be "unlockable content." It's more of a basic requirement for an item farming game, that is currently being used as a reason to force people to play Seasons.

Few people will disagree that the game is better now than during the vanilla AH days, but none of that absolves Blizzard of their pointless punishment of Non-Seasonal players by gating the stash space, of all things, behind the Seasonal wall.

I'd prefer to wait for a few legendaries than to have no way at ALL to get the stash space(currently), without playing seasons.

If Blizzard is dead set on achievements for stash space, then they should have just added some requirements in non-season for people to do.

Hopefully enough people are pissed off, yet don't give in to the coercion, so Blizzard relents and adds the extra tabs to Non-Seasonal play.

Plus, it is 1 tab per seasons. Each season lasts for 3 months. To get the full 10 tabs, you will HAVE to play every season for 1 year straight!

Yes, this is the part that really annoyed me... even if I was interested in seasons, it would take basically a year of serious grinding + character wipes to get the tabs that China and consoles already have. If there isn't some major technical issue preventing Blizzard from giving all the stash tabs for just a gold price, it really seems like the worst possible way they could have handled this.

Sheesh. No seasonal play for me in protest, of course. To be fair I'm pretty D3'd out anyway, don't see myself playing a ton this patch. Everybody else I knew has already quit D3 for other games as it is.

It's been said on the D3 forums a million times already, but Non-Seasonal will need the stash tabs more than Seasonal anyway. Completely ass backward way to do this, even if Blizzard felt it was necessary to force people to complete achievements to unlock stash space instead of just paying gold.

Yeah... still zero interest in playing seasons, Blizzard. Forcing stash unlocks into seasonal play is really a scumbag move.

I have a 'gaming' laptop, in that it has a halfway decent video card and decent processor/ram, decently sized SSD. 19" screen? 17.something I think.

Of course you get more bang for your buck with a desktop, but sometimes the convenience of being able to carry around something you can still play most games at reasonable resolutions is nice to have.

That said, this Razer thing is somewhat interesting, but not what I was hoping the article was about, aka the next in the line of large screen, full keyboard(with numpad!), good cpu, good ram and SSD laptops. Which may or may not get extremely hot while gaming.

This one is about 2.5 years old now, contemplating an upgrade.

My experience was about the same as yours, I've never liked timers in games, and all these Survival based games are basically just pitting you against a clock the entire time.

Still, I thought Don't Starve is extremely well made, just not my cup of tea, for most of that genre.

Interesting. I'll be getting this at some point, but at some distant sale/GotY version, not anytime soon.

The queue is just untameable at this point. Also, Blue, why doesn't your spellchecker recognize 'untameable' ?? It's a perfectly cromulant word! (Obligatory Simpsons ref.)

What the hell is wrong with Kickstarter? They should have immediately blocked this guy's either extremely naive, or outright scam attempt when it was submitted.
