It's sad. I told myself I wont click on the Comments link anymore on this site, but I wanted to see the patch notes. It's almost like clicking on a link in an email that you know that you should just type in the URL yourself.
I started gaming on the PC in the early 80's and still keep up OK with the new releases on both console and PC. Its just sad to be able to predict how many people will post on any D3 news article who bash the living crap out of this game.
I bought D3 on release, Im playing 5-10 hours a week with friends and having a good time along the way. 1/2 way through nightmare right now.
Anyway, it just bums me out that the PC scene is so angry all the time. Its like seeing a spokesman for a certain group on TV representing your group. I just keep saying to myself "we're not all that bad, some people are content".
Reasons are pretty simple why there's so much bashing:
1. D3 is not a Diablo game except in story (which is also garbage).
2. Blizzard is not the Blizzard we knew. Blizzard is a load of pompus blowhard money grubbing jackoffs in the disguise of the old Blizzard who used to care about their customers and produce solid games.
3. PC Gamers are tired of shit consolish games getting PC praise by shit console gamers.
4. D3 sucks. But honestly, is there even any reason needed other than this? If so, read 1-3.

I think they are focusing on the console crowd. Like they said, they're Japanese, and for whatever reason there's no PC game market there. But people clamored and ran petitions begging for a Windows port, so they're trying. Bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.
Typing of the Dead was a pretty weak port (ALT+F4 to quit), but it's still one of my favorite games. Hopefully they won't charge much.
EDIT: It's pretty analogous to Linux and Mac ports, and that one guy who keeps bitching when a Linux port is just running through a Wine wrapper (or something). The alternative is buying hardware if you want to play the game.

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as
Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress)
Well, if the people that did create those work for them, do you really need to cross it out?

So the answer is to make clever commercials for you to skip over?
Maybe he wouldn't skip them if they were appealing instead of an annoyance, hence make clever commercials instead of Yet Another Tampon Ad.

I played all the GTAs, but never tried SR. I take it from the comments here, you guys'd recommend SR3? Looks like a fun game from gameplay vidoes on YouTube.

I still have the beta client installed. Does anybody know if buy a digital version will unlock/update that, or do you have to download the whole damn thing over again?
You've got to get the whole thing again. Get crackin'!
