Not to defend this game because I dislike the genre (click click loot) and hate the online requirement, but...
1) Moderators know nothing.
2) What is in the box is completely irrelevant now-a-days, especially for a game like this.
1. I meant Community Manager (ala. Krowen) so I disagree with you. They are given enough information to keep the community informed (that's their job). Sure I can understand companies not wanting to feed ALL the info to that positon but in this case, I find no reason that they would speak anything other than what's actually happening.
2. This I agree with... I forgot the whole online patching/updating, etc. It's not unusual now a days to purcahse a game 'zero-day' or even 'zero-hour', install it and find that the brand new shiney game you just purchased updates online before you ever get in the game for the first time... it's a good thing I supppose. As non-game developer, you can never have enough updates!
*** I admit, I'm personally
a big fan of D3 especially, after the open beta. I am also a huge fan of D1 and D2 but, after Monday I loaded up D2 to play and after about an hour found myself wanting to play D3 instead... maybe I'm part of Blizzard's target group This comment was edited on Apr 24, 2012, 23:12.
