News Comments > Darkest Dungeon Released

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.

Fair enough, the games queue is quite ridiculous already. Although just a heads up to people considering, there is an option on the store page for PA owners to pay a reduced upgrade fee, currently it's like $9.90 or something.

I'll say it if no one else will:

Half-Life 3 confirmed.

Clearly he felt he could leave, now that HL3 is complete.

Ah, Star Citizen. Whenever I start feeling that 'hey, isn't it a shame nobody has tried to replicate Scientology in the PC gaming scene?' I can just read one of your news stories.

Surely nothing can go wrong with having employees track people online to see if they speak out against the project!

WHAT THE SHIT?!

You gave up FiOS for cable!?!?!? ARRRRGH! I would slap all of YallQaeda for some FiOS where I live.

IMMEDIATELY get FiOS, just watch Amazon Prime, Netflix, Crunchyroll, Hulu, whatever... ARRRGH! Just thinking about that situation is infuriatingly depressing.

But seriously god luck with your situation, I highly recommend a return to FiOS.

I'm tempted to buy PA:Titans, but they were such jerks about the whole thing, it seems like a mistake to support their bullshit.

Hrm, coinflip time maybe.

Well, Grim Dawn is definitely an evolution of TQ, with ex-TQ developers and a modified Titan's Quest engine.

There's also some D1/D2 developers as part of the GD team. Your also not forced online, and can play Internet or LAN COOP... which as far as I'm concerned is light years better than the online DRM that D3 and PoE have.

All 3 have there +/-, but GD hangs with those two easily (plus NOT forcing you online).


Oh I know, but I can't honestly say that D3 doesn't have a better engine, or PoE doesn't have a better setup for the passives, or a much better short length league model. I enjoy Grim Dawn the most currently, but even Torchlight 2 has some pluses over Grim Dawn, to be honest.

Very excited about this. 1 more month.

Edit: Oh God, no...

Most start concealed and with a set number of rounds before mission failure, making each match more fast-paced than you’d think a turn-based strategy could be.

So MOST missions now have a fucking turn counter???? Well, that puts a huge damper on my interest.

Wow, that is a fucking terrible change. I hated the timed missions the most in the first one.

Also, expensive Day 1 dlc.

Oh well, bargain bin it is, on the one hand it's good this choice was so easy.
