Fuller House... No...



Would be great if MK&A shows up stumbling with wads of cash sticking out of their sweaty thongs and blow all over their noses...

I'd watch that!

Couldn't care less about making sites more mobile friendly. Half the 'm' versions of sites (or even mobile optimized) suck ass compared to the main site version, and I go to the real thing and just scroll/zoom/etc on a smaller device.

Just means I'll avoid google's search if possible. I prefer Bing anyway, google is good for when you know what you want to find, bing is good for oldschool searching and the lesser known (and porn (from what I've heard(because I would never search porn(ever!)))).

Open Source Software Model broken?

I just skimmed the article and the guy who wrote it is a microsoft fanatic who has something against libreoffice and open source in general.

Open source is the reason we have any real windows/apple competition, android, linux, firefox, libre, most of google's library of free incredible softwares, etc.

Open source is the best thing that ever happened in the software world, the alternative would be Apple and MS paten trolling everything imaginable.

So Derrick feel free to stick with your windows phone and expensive bloatware office suite and kick back with microsoft in your pocket, but you don't know jack.

1080p, 144hz/fps, max distance.

That's my target on every fps/tps game, easily achieved with GTA5 -- just menu tweaks and it looks great too.

It's no surprise that the younger generation are either clueless or too carefree, usually both, when it comes to tech (not just security) -- made worse when they carry around some degree or a pile of certs and think they know best.

I'm guessing they know their servers will get crippled with this type of launch, and we'll all settle for the SP...

Here's how it went cause none of you can bother to fucking read how shit goes down.

Verno says it's popular with twitch kids. I say:
lol nice try Verno, while I call kids games for what they are, PoE is not one of them. A simple check through PoE's site on the streamers I've never seen a single "kid" They simply couldn't grasp most of what the game offers - they like D3 type of stuff. :)

Not crazy batshit, not defensive, just light-hearted and factual. Now since *Verno* is a fucking defensive ass when it comes to anything I say no matter how it's said, he follows up with:

No need to get so defensive... I don't care what you think of it TBH... Not sure why you're so weird about this game and try to force your opinion on everyone else

And it went down from there, thanks to Verno making an asshole comment about forcing opinions after there were 3 pages of constructive feedback till he popped in and got stupid with his pals.

Now fuck the hell off -- so sick of you trolling assholes derailing threads. You have a problem with me, fine, but you aren't fooling anyone with this constant shit you pull.

I bought through GmG when it was cheap. Steam achievements don't matter, just add the game manually so your friends can see it and you're good to go.

Steam GTA5 won't be cheap anytime soon.

I said your assessment that poe is a kids game is wrong, and you, troublemaker, did what you came to do - cause trouble.

It's a good thing I never said POE was a kids game then but expecting you to actually read and comprehend text is obviously impossible.

Three pages of good discussion agreeing and disagreeing, overshadowed by Verno the troublemaker with a chip on his shoulder pissed I didn't agree with him. You be the judge...

How does one even attempt to force an opinion? Talk about being defensive, Verno - you are often the pot calling the kettle.

Hell I'd love to see "plenty of kids play it", but they don't. You're just full of shit.

I don't mean 5 year olds and you're just being weird, don't poop your pants in your haste to discredit everyone who doesn't love up your favorite game.

You mindless fucking PR bot, I'm allowed to have my opinions even if you don't like them.

You = defensive bullshitter making problems where there aren't any. Any normal person reading this thread would come to the same conclusion. Fuck off troublemaker.

I went ahead and preordered from GmG when it was discounted and am fairly certain the PC version will be a hit based on readings.

If not, I'll never preorder again! Wink

I'm pretty pumped...

Great for the diehards of the game but I can't see myself getting back into it. Very poorly animated and combat is boring to me. It was fun for awhile and I didn't pay any money so whatever, no regrets.

The F2P aspect makes it a great game for kids though, see lots of buzz from youngins about it on Twitch.

lol nice try Verno, while I call kids games for what they are, PoE is not one of them. A simple check through PoE's site on the streamers I've never seen a single "kid" They simply couldn't grasp most of what the game offers - they like D3 type of stuff.

biggest problem of PoE is the complete lack of item comparison features.

You may scoff at D3 for various reasons, but when I pick up an Item that does 15% more damage but doesn't have a 15% skill damage perk for a skill I am constantly using then I *know* that that item need to be rerolled.

But in PoE you have to compare dozens of stats 1 by 1.. dark souls of the ARPG genre does describe it nicely. Also PoE has nothing of the "wow" factor that Diablo 3 has when you encounter legendaries, or kill a big boss. The sound design is meh, there is no bombast and fluff.

And in D3 you definitely have to think to some extend, but the main focus of D3 was always about the loot. And the loot changes how you play D3 fundamentally at times.

Maybe it's me, but so far I was always bored to death by level 16, where I honestly found maybe 20 good decent items to use in that time. And barely 10 skills. That's just not doing it for me.. fixed progression is really no issue considering that legendaries can drop that completely change what a skill does, or how your skills work.

Witch Doctor = Fetish Army stays alive until it dies, is for example a complete game-changer. It allows a witch doctor to have 10+ creatures on screen that each do 685% weapon damage, that's just insane. Compare to that to PoE that doesn't seem to have a proper summoning skill tree to begin with, only skeletons and zombies. That are very slow to attack stuff with bad AI that gets stuck everwhere. Nmhnhmnh

Summoning is downright amazing in PoE, and the way you summon/control changes drastically character to character depending on how it's built. Their AI is solid - I made many hc summoners past level 80.

I won't go deep into it as there's simply too much going on, but you have the skellys and zombies sure, but you also have summon raging spirits, domination of monsters you kill, animated weapons, blink/mirror arrows, and spectres, all managable by several zummoning skills like offerings and convocation and all affected by the equipment - some of which is specific to summoners/minions. Spectres are monsters you kill and raise to fight for you - they can be any non-rare monster available in the game and retains their mods which is a truly amazing experience to find a monster and mod it to your liking to fight for you.

The amount of mods you can add and alter how your summons work is just too much to get into detail. If interested find some of it here:
PoE Minions

This doesn't even include the multitude of support gems you can socket onto each minion, from melee splash, multiple projectiles, damage, added cold/lightning, life, man there's so many I could list I'll just stop here you get the picture.

As for comparisons, there's too many mechanics to make it a simple A to B, heck many of the DPS numbers aren't even valid since much isn't factored in --so you'll need to figure out what matters and there's getting away from that with PoE.

I tried really hard to get into this but I found myself playing a lot more Diablo 3 in the long run. It's got a lot of the stuff I wanted from Diablo 3 but didn't get, but it also feels, I dunno, old school in a bad way? Clunky? I can't really put the feeling to words.

I haven't played D3 since the "reboot" but last year when I played them both, I ended up playing a lot more PoE than D3. It was simply better. That being said, I heard the D3 reboot patch makes it a much better game. Once I find the time, I intend to get back into D3.

I have played PoE since the D3 "reboot' but last year, when I played them both, I ended up playing a crap ton more D3 than PoE. It was simply better. That being said, I heard that the PoE changes since then make it a much better game. Once I find the time, I intend to get back into PoE.

PoE is pretty much the same just more of it. D3 was only better in the "I don't need to think" department, and that's fine if it's how you like it.
