Seems to have the same texture streaming issues that FarCry4, Dying Light and Arkham Knight have/had.

i dont really give a shit, because what you say above is not normal

the games arent the problem... only thing left is what they are running on

If you haven't seen bad texture streaming in these games, it's because you haven't been paying attention. I want to add Witcher 3 to the list. It trumps all of these by a LOT.

I could go for more borderland-style coop shooters, but this one looks REALLY repetitive and bland.

so, christ roberts has enough cash to make a game of that scope and quality OVER 40 TIMES

Yeah, I'd say Star Citizen at least looks like it'll be 40 times the scope and quality. The technology, physics, graphics and simulation complexity count for at least 35 of those 40 times.

Love some of these games.
Dungeon Hack. Generate a random dungeon that you can configure with a huge amount of sliders and then generate a hero of any class and go through it! Kinda like a DnD rogue-like.

Hillsfar. Kinda like Pirates!, but medieval. I really like the lockpicking minigame.

Menzoberranzan. Probably the best game of that type I've ever played.

XCOM 2 reminds me more of a mashup of ideas in Xcom: Apocalypse and regular XCOM, setting-wise. Different alien races obviously shown, Megacorps, etc. - except in this the premise is that Aliens took over.

As for Fallout, if you ask me, going first person was a great idea. To me, it was an improvement to the game. Sequels should improve on previous games' mechanics, not carbon copy everything and give it a new coat of pain.

The lack of 'making sense', decent story writing, and no effective command/control of companions was definitely an improvement. Highly recommended read: The Blistering Stupidity of FO3.

I said that the first person thing was an improvement. Never talked about anything else.

You could definitely add a first person view to xcom. In fact, I'd love it. You keep the exact same gameplay, but you can press a button to see the battlefield from your soldier's point of view. You could aim your gun to select targets or where to go, and you could clearly see what he sees and what he doesn't. Maybe you could even walk like in a shooter and draw your walking path for your turn that way. Once you made your plan, you'd press ok and he would move on his own just like before. It would really help with immersion. The game would be harder to play if you only used that view though.

Biggest problem with the game is that after the quick tutorial walk, you enter a huge town that is completely overwhelming. There's too many things to do and you're not used to the quest system of the game yet, so it's incredibly confusing. Some(most?) quests don't even give you clear directions in text, you have to talk to everyone and look everywhere to progress to the next part of the quest.

It would have been a huge improvement to start the game off in a smaller village with like 5 houses and very few quests. You would have had time to accomodate yourself to the game smoothly and getting to a bigger town would be a reward.

I tried to play this game in coop with my Brother. Mind you, we're not newbies to these kind of games. We've been playing RPGs since there were RPGs. We were just lost and not invested enough in the game to take the time to go through this major hurdle and all this text. We ended up playing a different coop game.

Attributing critical discernment to emotional nostalgia is the refuge of the ignorant. Diablo3 is fundamentally broken. The damage/weapon/spell systems are too homogenous. The levels are homogenous because they are just big blocks placed with slight randomization, instead of true random dungeons of Diablo1 and 2.

...rambling truncated...

Shame.

Can't even see you clearly you are so high up on that horse.

Diablo 3 is a blast to actually PLAY and to many that's the most important thing. Sorry it doesn't fit your definition of Diablo, but there are lots of other ARPGs out there for you.

Which ones? Path of Exile? A soulless mess that looks like a college student project with gameplay about as exciting. Grim Dawn which might be finished by the time I die. Any others I'm missing here?

I suggest Titan Quest or Hellgate London(best diablo style game ever)

Yeah I guess, but I was mostly forcing my way though it in the hopes it would become good. There were some points that were pretty good. Worth the money? Sure. Best use for the money(talking games here)? Probably not.

My deep understanding of the Diablo franchise:

Diablo 1 - Good
Diablo 2 - Fantastic
Diablo 3 - Eh... Fun on consoles with multiple people.


When do I start?

I liked 1 better than 2. That jungle section in 2 is still just painful to think of.

I loved the jungle. It's my favorite one for visuals and atmosphere. A joy to be in. I guess some zones can be annoying for various reasons. The bland zones is in my top things I hate about D3. There's one or two good ones, but wow they suck compared to D2's.

Diablo 3 is a great game on PC. The gameplay itself was always amazing, but when it released, the game systems were broken and wouldn't work past a certain level. This was later fully corrected. Now the game is great overall, but it sure isn't perfect. I personally hate the skill system and I'm not a big fan of the weapon system/or lack of one.
How would you rate it?

You seem very interested in my ratings As it stands now(I haven't played it in like 10 months), I'd say that if you start fresh, it's probably a 9. It truly is a lot of fun, until you reach the limits of the system, but by then, you'd have your money's worth.

LOLNO. It's a shallow game which limits everything you do, and thinks town downtime is a waste of time. It's made for ADHD riddled children, because its designers saw Diablo as a mindless loot clicker and nothing deeper than that.

It's not Diablo 2, but that doesn't make it a bad game. Not saying what you said is wrong, but the game is a lot of fun. I don't know of any other game that can make the act of killing monsters and destroying things this fun.

1. 8.3? That's pretty precise. Reason?

2. Will this patch change your score one way or the other?

Maybe Sunday I'll have time to write more. I want to write a bigger "review" of it. The patch will absolutely not change my score, from what I read anyway. As for the score, yeah, it's not quite a 8.5, but not an 8 either and slightly better than an 8.25 :p 83% if you prefer.

I wonder if Max will need a woman to shoot for him because he's a gimp in the game as well?

... oh for cryin' out... are you serious?

Max may have spent a large portion of the film tied up, or bound in some way - but to negate his actions entirely, simply because a female takes a couple shots... I mean, your thinly veiled misogyny is shining through your insecurity here.

Yeah, that movie wasn't about feminism, misogyny or anything of the sort. It does feature a greater number of "powerful" women than usual, but that's not saying much. I never thought about any of that stuff after seeing the movie. I had no idea there was a controversy.

Spoilers, maybe: I do wish the movie was more about Max though... This was basically Furiosa's story of revenge with Mad Max as a side character. Also, I would have liked to see Max drive his car and stuff... It happens, for like 30 seconds...
