Diablo 3 launch



  • @Master Chief said:

    Not saying they're angels, but most of the "scandals" from EA are nothing more than entitled nerds whining about X, Y, or Z. Take the Day One DLC fiasco with Mass Effect 3 where zomg, you had to pay more for content already on the disc!

  • Initially, the From Ashes DLC was ONLY for people who pre-ordered Collectors or Limited editions. It was later added in the shop as a buyable DLC for $5 (cheaper than Limited).
  • Yes it was on the disc, because people who aren't retarded wouldn't print different versions of the game disc for the different releases.
  • I agree that that "controversy" was stupid.

    The reason I (somewhat) boycott EA is due to their signing an exclusive license with the NFL, back when Sega was starting to kick their ass at football games, because paying the NFL to shut-out Sega was cheaper than actually *gasp* improving Madden to not suck. (That said, Madden has improved a lot now, but it was still a dick move at the time.)

    I have to admit, I still buy DICE games (Battlefield series), but I at least feel guilty about it.



  • So I'm thinking of buying Diablo III, because the mage as this awesome icy deathray, and I have a raging boner for bright ray weapons.

    Weirdly enough, I watched several videos of the first few areas as played by different classes and they all felt like the character was overpowered except the mage.

    That list reminds me of how awesome the Half-Life demo was. It was its own self-contained little story line and was beautifully executed, with attention to detail that would be impressive in a retail game, let alone a demo. I played it all the way through several times as I was saving up the cash to buy the real game.

    You played a demo several times because you needed to save cash to buy a video game... For now on I think I'll call you Tiny Tim.

    I guess this occurred before you started your immensely successful career in IT, but come on, what kind of work were you doing? Selling matches in Copenhagen?

    Interesting. When I was fourteen, I was saving up for a motocross, not for a 50$ video game. Of course at that age I was working part time (I had two newspaper runs and I was spending my summers doing yard work); in your case maybe it took a long time to get 50$ because you had to save the 5$ weekly stipend your parents were giving you for cleaning your room and taking out the garbage on Wednesdays.

    If you were 14 when Half-Life came out (98?) it means you are now around 28. This surprises me because most people figure out in the early 20s at the latest that a foul language is not the proper way to communicate. Maybe this is something you could discuss with your mom when you go drop your dirty laundry (or should I say: when you come up from the basement to give her your dirty laundry - unless she picks it directly from your room?).

    See, this is how you tell someone how childish they are. No need for dirty words.

    I will give you that... the government bought eight trams from Spain that are of French origin, and they're better than the Canadian ones in pretty much every way. That said, they're not good for much else though.

    Canadian = Bombardier? Those guys have bought about half of the train manufacturers in Europe.

    TRWTF when it comes to rolling stock is AnsaldoBreda. Suffice to say is that they're Italian, and apart from the fact that their products have more issues than an anorexic LGBT with post-traumatic stress disorder, they are ugly. Can you imagine that? An Italian designing something that does not look good?

    Not to stray too far from the subject matter: I want Episode 3. No, I demand it. The bastards were even teasing us about it in Portal 2.



  • @blakeyrat said:

    It depends. I've been reading this forum for a while before taking the time to create an account, and I've noticed that there are two kinds of people that use strong language: the brutally honest and the immature. I can't stand immature people. They remind me of the young king in Game of Thrones; entitled, nasty, pissy, insecure, with no valid claim to greatness. The exact same people that, when you talk with them, you know they don't listen, they think about what they will reply. It makes me even less patient when it is obvious that they have average skills and they make fun of people with less than average skills, like wannabe bullies.

    I know I should ignore them, it's my own jihad inner struggle...





  • @Severity One said:

    Indeedy doo. Considering they're Canadians, I expect better than what they made... the seats feel like upholstered wood, they're uglier than the French things and they're louder than the French trams. They're also supplying the new trains, so it will be interesting to see what they're like.

    I buy EA games because if I don't, there are plenty of other people who will anyway. Boycotts don't work because your average person is either completely unaware, or completely apathetic (like me).

    Also, buying games I like slightly skews the trends toward my tastes, meaning publishers will be more likely to make more games I like.

    Do you feel bigger now? That whole "basement dweller gamer" stereotype has pretty much died. Also, it's kind of dickish to judge somebody because their parents have disposable income and like to be generous with it. Though judging from the combination of low age employment and motocross interest, I'm betting you grew up in an area with a lot of wheeled homes.

    Contributing to purchase statistics does impact (albeit very little) what publishers will sign onto in the future. Boycotts, however, are by their nature extremely hard to measure, if the target company even attempts to do so, or take it seriously at all. Basically, as a paying customer, you carry more weight in their decisions than if you're not. At least, that's how I look at it.

    I don't empathize much with pop-culture, two-dimensional strawmen, nor those who use them as "evidence".

    And now to round out this argument, I shall use a blatant and profane insult:

    You are a mouse-fucker-- which can be doubly insulting because it either means your genitals are very tiny (in reference to a biological mouse), or you are socially maladjusted and derive sexual pleasure from inanimate object, with the added bonus of implying you have an unhealthy obsession with computer.

    ...

    I apologize. I'll be more blatant next time, whore-hair.



  • @Master Chief said:

    How do you know my boycott isn't working when you don't know its goals? It's enough that I don't give money to EA. Other people can do what they want.

    Wow. Don't insult people until you come up with at least one good insult. Or for God's sake, just copy one from pop culture. Because those were fucking pathetic insults.



  • @Master Chief said:

    They are also completely weak willed.

    Back when Modern Warfare 2 was anounced in 2009 with the news that they would not be running any dedicated servers or allow players to run their own, gamers got their nerd-rage on. They made a Steam group called 'Boycott Modern Warfare 2'  and hundres of thousands of Steam users joined it.

    MW2 came out... with no dedicated servers.

    a few days later, someone wrote a script to poll the Steam API and get a list of steam IDs of the group members and then check each of those IDs to see if they owned MW2.

    I believe the ownership figure was somewhere around 60%

    I can confirm that the ice ray is awesome. After a while you get Disintegrate which is a huge red death ray - also awesome.

    @dhromed said:

    Having played the game I feel that way too, but I think it's a matter of how each class plays rather than a balancing issue. The Demon Hunter has traps for when enemies approach and can quickly dodge away to his preferred fighting range. The Monk and Barbarian don't care about close combat, have ways of healing themselves, and actually have more spirit/rage to spend as the fight goes on. The Witch Doctor's resource is limited, but you can just summon tons of stuff and let them do the killing for you. Which leaves the Wizard (or mage, as you call it) who becomes less capable of doing damage the more damage he does (due to his limited resource), but unlike the Witch Doctor has little to no indirect damage early on. So you're left doing a lot of kiting and careful management of defensive abilities while you wait for your arcane power to regenerate.

  • @morbiuswilters said:

    I mostly played II and I loved it; probably my second-favorite turn-based strategy after Alpha Centauri. I was eagerly anticipating III for years but luckily I got out of gaming* before it came out because I hear only bad things about it.

    Never played Alpha Centauri, so can't comment. MOO2 needed a couple of tweaks. A way to say 'build the same shit I built at those other ten colonies'. A way to say 'upgrade these ships to the same spec as that one'. Finally, a combat AI that doesn't lose even with a 35-1 advantage.

    MOO3 was publicised as being MOO2-but-better, but had in fact been changed beyond all recognition into a game I (and a lot of others, it would seem) didn't like. They surgically extracted all the fun somehow, replacing it with a vague feeling that you had no idea what the hell was going on. Then they added crashingly obvious bugs and solved the problem of stupid combat AI by making you give orders to a stupid combat AI, too!

    Well done on discovering the opposite sex (10,000,000 Research Points in Sociology, IIRC). Unfortunately for me, my girlfriend bought me my copy of MOO3. It's the thought that counts, I suppose...

    And they're very practical, too. During the Berlin Blockade, they were fighting a colonial war in Indochina, and therefore couldn't spare any transport aircraft to help the Americans and the British. Instead, they dediced to build a new airport, Berlin Tegel (which operates to this day). There was one problem, though, which was the proximity of a Soviet-controlled radio tower, and calls to move it fell on deaf ears.

    Their solution? They simply blew it up.

A “loud muffler” is one that doesn’t muffle as much as a “standard” one. If someone says to you, “The music is too loud!” do you tell them, “No, I think you mean the speakers are too loud. Music doesn’t make any sound, only the instruments or speakers used to play it do.”

    You may be an expert in pedantic dickweedery, but apparently you understand sarcasm as poorly as the person I was replying to.
