Well, to be fair, that wasn't a straight 1600 foot 'fall,' but it was definitely a dangerous slide/tumble down the side of the mountain. Definitely unpleasant.

The Season Journey is just a interface that guides you through seasonal achievements and gives you rewards for completing sets of them, increasing in difficulty as you go. Well, even the last ones aren't really that difficult, they just require you invest the time playing to build a strong enough character and/or get a group together to cooperate in a specific task. A dedicated player can finish the whole thing in a week or two, but the season lasts several months, so it's plenty of time for anyone.

Hrm, for the most part these changes look good, although I'd really appreciate a way to unlock Stash tabs in Non-Season, since I already have 12 characters I use and don't want to delete once, let alone several times over a year just to get the 'full' set of tabs.

Good choice to remove Exclusive items from seasons, that is really the best news from the pre-patch notes.

There's a new feature specifically made for your situation, which reverts an existing character to level 1 and puts them in the Season. You're not gonna be forced to delete and re-create anymore. No more excuses!

Meh... they are pushing this Seasons nonsense so hard, and it is a complete 180 from their stated goals from before release and through the various betas. I'll read up on what you're talking about when it's closer to live, but it sounds like it'll still divide up my characters and friends list. I am 95% solo in this game, but I still get together with various old D2 people and play in pairs and trios.

I have zero desire to play with the general public or even join a clan/guild/community for the sole purpose of unlocking Stash tabs, and it'd be a shame if they really try to force group play down peoples' throats just to get more inventory space.

Eh, it's his money. But I'd hate to ever get that feeling of being massively kicked in the nuts that he's undoubtedly going to have. This game will never, EVER be worth that kind of money.

I should avoid posting in a SC thread, but yes, basically this. Assuming Star Citizen gets finished in some form or another eventually, it is extremely unlikely it'll ever be worth this kind of investment. Still, it's his money to burn; I look it as I would any person who joined a cult and gave all his money to a random crazy priest. Disappointing, embarrassing, somewhat shocking, but ultimately not my business, unless they are a family member.

Interesting, according to that article, the film is still 'unfinished.' Not much time left there, people. Barely a month!

Also, I thought the Hateful Eight looked damned good from earlier trailers, and now I am required to see it in the theatres AT LEAST twice, since the Fraternal Order of Police threatened Quentin Tarantino about it. And here I thought the FOoP was just a bunch of threatening telemarketers trying to bully old people into buying stickers to put on the license plates. Way to step up and go full Mafia, boys.

*EDIT* Also, try to stay strong, Half-Elf and anybody else dying to see the film. DON'T WATCH THE TRAILERS.

Hrm, doesn't look half bad. I'll get this on sale, surely; highly unlikely that I'll bother picking it up around release though.

As others have said, plenty of time for a healthy selection of mods to come out while the price drops.

hahaha, classic film.

Otters are inordinately cute...playing with a rock in front of a human with a camera for like 10 minutes though is pretty suspicious. No doubt its next step was a sudden and vicious leap for the camera man's jugular.

Well, if they are going to decide to sell these HD/remastered remakes, then they'll make bank. Classy move would be for previous owners to get them for free, but I doubt Activision is down with that.

Diablo 3, for all its problems, has more potential than D2 LoD vanilla though, in my opinion, although I'd definitely like to run through a D2 Aftermath or Median XL with massively improved graphics just for old time's sake.

Waiting for Witcher 3 price to come down.

Same, although yes, I've heard it's basically the greatest RPG in quite some time.

The backlog on Steam/Gog/Gamersgate/GMG etc. is already ridiculous, I will attempt to ignore this sale unless Witcher 3 hits like 5 dollars or something.

I'd say let the poor guy see the movie, but on the flipside, I doubt it's done? I mean, filming etc is done, but post production work and editing are undoubtedly still ongoing?
I don't know how close up until release they work on these things but I would hope at a month and a half out it would be mostly in the can by now.

Yeah, one would hope that shit is done. They should have already sent whatever master copy to the factory to start producing those Hard drives they send to the theatres.

Haha, the tiny, almost microscopic booth in the corner, no doubt staffed by one unlucky intern. That would be hilarious if I didn't still have some irrational belief that Diablo 3 could be patched into greatness.

Whoa, Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced on sale for $5.

I need to go ahead and finish my run through of Enhanced BG1/BG2, so far BG1 has been my nemesis, either my harddrive will die, or some other issue will cause me to format. I'll get back to it eventually!

Also, Kyn on sale, while we're talking isometric rpgs. *Disclosure: I bought this yesterday, haven't really had a chance to mess with it, been playing Victor Vran a lot. Kyn was on my wishlist though and my brain auto-bought it when it went below 5 dollars.

Holy shit... 5.9 billion?

Casual phone games are just too huge, no wonder most larger game companies have totally sold out the past 10 years or so.

Of course the indie/kickstarter game scene has really improved, so it's not all bad.

But basically, even less money/man power will be spent on Diablo 3 now.

dude.... ash vs evil dead is the ultimate... holy shit its good

Agreed, I thought the first episode was pretty damned good for having about 25-30 years off.

I watched the first season of Dark Matter, and enjoyed it enough that I'll watch the second. Still, it's definitely a cable tv show, in terms of overall quality.

Fargo(the series) on the other hand... now that is high quality art. And the second season is shaping up to be superior to the first, which True Detective utterly failed on.

Steam Halloween sale: 1877 things on sale. How am I supposed to even look at all that stuff?

I view 1877 things on sale as a missed opportunity. Had they gone with 1887 (Dracula published) or 1818 (Frankenstein published) it could have had a little secret meaning.

Luckily these days, most of those 1877 things are shovelware or things you already own from past sales. The Wishlist in Steam has been pretty good for me, as far as winnowing down any massive sale to just checking for the price drops on items I definitely want.

I did pick up Victor Vran so far, and it seems pretty interesting from the little time I've put in today.

At first, upon reading that headline, I was like: 'wow, finally, the FBI is getting involved in stopping the massive number of murders that go on in Baltimore in any given year!'

Then of course, I read the story and realized they were just filming the protestors. Good work once again FBI, way to do something useful.

*EDIT* typo.

So, basically Amazon wants to sell us every possible product, ever. I think the only thing they are missing currently is large scale vehicles, cars/planes/boats etc.

It'd be impressive, if it wasn't also so ominously evil.
