FuryOfFirestorm: The Duke Nukem rule applies here: "The longer a product has been in production, the more disappointing it will be".


That makes sense. They had to induce labor when I was born and I'm constantly told I'm a disappointment. :P

Too little, too late. Blizzard used to be awesome. Then Activision came along. No, I do not want a user account with your company. So stop requiring me to have one to play your games. No, I do not want to be always connected to the internet to play your game.

I don't want to have to buy into a huge amount of your bullshiat just to play a farking game! Just install and go! FFS!!!

And that's all before I even get to the fact that D3 looks like garbage and all of it's "innovations" to the genre have already been done by other games (I'm looking at you, Torchlight).

But the game will still make a million billion dollars because it says Diablo on the box.

Grables'Daughter: HotWingAgenda: Grables'Daughter: I'm actually a bit intrigued.

I might buy this and try it.

I have a fairly good laptop... a year old, and HP. Do I need like a supercomputer to play this, or will it be like a game that doesn't run right?

/loves adventure
//really might try it

I'm in a similar boat as you. I have one of those stock graphics cards on my fairly new laptop. 2 gigs of RAM, plenty of hard memory... but since I have an Intel 4500MHD integrated onto the motherboard, I can't really play anything released less than 5 years ago.

I can just barely play the original Portal, and Bioshock is laggy on the lowest possible settings. I can forget about things like this, Skyrim, Fallout 3...

So, again, HALP!!!

Does that mean that:

1. It won't run at all
2. It will run, but maybe slow and I won't be able to enjoy it as much
3. It will play fine, just that the graphics won't be as sharp
4. I don't even know what this scenario may be...

HELP!


Having been through an attempt to load the open beta on a system that had a nVida 6150 LE video chip and scouring the video card spec sites, that laptop won't even allow the game to start.

Grables'Daughter: Tax Boy: Grables'Daughter: SO, if I DO try to buy it, will it be readily available for purchase, or will it be sold out everywhere?

It's 2012. You can download it straight from Blizzard.

/ no cheaper than the physical copy with the disk, manual, etc.
// why not? because fark you, that's why.

But, if I download it, and then upgrade to a new computer, don't I need to buy it again, whereas if I have the box version, can't I just re-install it?

/sorry if I am so dumb...

: )


You can always redownload it. plus, blizzard's games don't poop files all over your hard disk, so you can simply just copy the directory over to your new computer as-is. There isn't any DRM or copy protection either, which is nice -- but that's why you have to log into a single-player game.

D3 is garbage. It is boring, insipid, and lacks the basic innovation of even Solitare or Mine Sweeper. This is coming from someone that has owned all the warcraft, starcraft, and previous diablo installments. This game is the definition of soulless, profit-margin inspired corporate dreck.

I think I'm gonna dodge D3. Not for any kind of hipster reasons, but because I've not been happy with Blizzard releases for about 3-4 years. I know the gaming market has turned a corner, and Blizzard lead the way down that dark road, so the games they've been releasing have been increasingly worse as time goes by.

Add in the cash grab scenario and I'm surprised they're not releasing the game with 1 class and the others would be expansions, ala SC3. We also all know DLC will be released either release day or within a few weeks of release, possibly as late as after the first patch. DLC is a way of recurring revenue for the gaming companies, that's why they do it. They know our lemming brains just HAVE to have everything for the game, even when it should have been part of the base game.

So, no thank you, Blizzard. I found my D2 discs in the move, and still have Titan Quest with it's expansion loaded up on my PC, so I will be just fine without your latest product. When it goes on sale in about 3-6 months, I may pick it up because that is my rule now: Never buy a game at full price. The 6 hours of game play they offer does not constitute the $60 price tag.

PsyLord: Meh... didn't preorder nor will I buy it after what Blizzard did with Starcraft II. I will, however, preorder this:


You know.... I went back to playing Guild Wars to work on HoM stuff and it reminded me why I lost all interest in GW2 in the first place. I despise the fact that ANet made it into a game that demands you spend huge amounts of time farming and grinding for titles but went out of its way to create that nukes anything that would make farming effective. Then there's the "challenge". After about the tenth wipe in Slaver's because two huge groups of Stone Summit got locked together and became numerically impossible to beat I got more than a little tired of that.

And, of course, there's the fact they stopped developing it in any meaningful way after only three years...

Ugh.... I was going to preorder 2, then I went back an played 1 again and remembered that ANet is a company with great vision and promise that released a game that could have been great, but after the storyline just turned into complete crap.

/ the fact that the first time I tried to preorder their form was bugged didn't help
// nor did the fact that the second time I tried they had somehow sold out of digital copies... how the fark do you sell out of a digital item... even if you don't have the keys yet you could still sell copies with a caveat

Diablo holds a special place in my heart.

Me, my dad, and my brother played the shiat out of it together in high school. It was the 2nd game we ever played as a group (the first being Secret of Mana).

My older, engineer brother was the necromancer, calculating as usual. He was a golem / bone necro, no armies of skeletal masses for him.

My dad was a barbarian, big ass maul tearing people to pieces, he loved to leap ahead of us to take the first hit. Even in the games he led the way.

I was a Paladin, the little brother there to help, buffing my dad and my brother's golem to become wrecking machines while i was just an iron wall of defense.

We played through every difficulty, took us all summer but we eventually destroyed Baal as a family. I've convinced my dad and brother to pick up the game again so we can have another run around. We are going Barbarian, Witch Doctor and Monk, i think you can know who is playing who.

Ugh... that just annoys me even more because it's just more of their amateur bullshiat. Would it really have been that hard to sell the preorders in waves since that was apparently the plan anyway? Or at least just update the damn website to say as much and that you could buy more after the first beta?

I really want to like this company. I really want to like Guild Wars. They have great ideas and they do great stuff with them when it comes to the core of their games, but then I just get hit in the face with some obviously crap design decision or poorly thought out business decision like this and wonder if I'm dealing with a company making an MMO or some high school kid begging for money on Kickstarter to make his game....

ShadowLAnCeR: Can someone please tell me what the holy hype is over Diablo 3? I didn't get into RPGs until they were all in 3D so I honestly do not understand.

/Neverwinter Nights was my gateway RPG game


Diablo (1996) and Diablo 2 (2000) were the best-selling, most-played RPGs of their type in history. Both were multiplayer-capable, had expansion packs, and were great games in their own right.

They had fun, interesting, immersive (for the time) storylines, and gameplay mechanics that were entertaining.

They were made by a company that was widely regarded as one of, if not the best game companies in the world.

Fast-forward twelve years.

Since then, Blizzard has been bought out by Activision, and their game releases seem more concerned about profit and bottom line than gameplay or interesting development. They seem like their sole company goal these days is to maximize WoW subscriptions.

They release Starcraft 2 TWELVE years after Starcraft 1. Starcraft 1 was revolutionary at the time for having three playable races - and three fully fleshed-out campaigns with these races. They release SC2 with only one race. At release time, they say they plan to release the other two races in expansions to the game within a year each. It's now two years later, and no release date has been set.

In the meantime, they make a RTS game that requires an always-on internet connection to function properly, and actively ban accounts of people who are "hacking" or "cheating" - even if they do nothing in any online play. A banned account locks you out of software YOU PURCHASED, PERMANENTLY. Don't like it? Too bad. (No, I didn't do this, but a friend did - and he immediately unsubbed from WoW and threw it in the trash as a result)

Basically, they make the games more restrictive, less fun, and they come out half a decade after their previous release schedule would indicate.

The hype is all about what Blizzard USED to be - a great gaming company. What's going to happen is anger and butthurt on a SWTOR level when the game doesn't live up to billing.

Halo doesn't suck. Halo is perfect at being Halo. A low-medium skill range shooter with great matchmaking and community and the best 'theater mode' on the market. You may not like Halo because you prefer a different style of game but it does not suck it's a huge moneymaker and a success. I personally don't find it all that fun but that is a matter of taste.

Console gaming isn't all garbage. A lot of very popular games are made specifically for the console and ported over to PC. In fact it's sometimes difficult to find a non-MMO game for the PC that isn't available on consoles so claiming that PC gaming is somehow better due to it's better selection of games is somewhat dishonest. It's better because of;

Better control (keyboard + mouse FTW)
Some games are only available on PC
Digital delivery on release day
modding and addons
better graphics

What I liked about Diablo 3 Beta:

Zones seemed like they were on rails, not wide open like D2


I had that feeling too, but the beta was basically the tutorial chapter. I fully expect later levels to be more open. Hope I'm not disappointed.

In any case, it wasn't that bad once you hit the level 7+ stuff.

The SC2 hate is pretty ridiculous. I'm going to venture to say if you played SC1 and hate SC2 that it's a mixture between the fact that you are simply bad at the game and/or have some retro video game fetish whereas all new games are s*it.

So much this!

Diablo absolutely rocked back in the day. Looking back on it, the graphics are dated, but the skeleton of the game is still awesome. Diablo 2, again, rocked really hard, they learned their lessons from Diablo and made a game that was very good and very long but some serious Carrot on a Stick action going on. Look at WarCraft 1-3 again, they progressively got better as they went, sticking with the formula and making it better with up to date graphics without changing the skeleton of the game. Since Diablo 2 and WC3 and SC1, WoW has become a HUGE cash cow. This is what is called a Game Changer.

They learned a whole bunch about profits and the bottom line with WoW, to the point they didn't bother with anything else for a year or two. They know WoW is on it's downward slide, which is why they've taken their best developers and began putting them on 'Titan' (development title of their next gen MMO) and decided to revisit SC and Diablo as an afterthought. Again, bottom line is the name of the game, and these franchises were WILDLY popular back in the day of early PC gaming. They put SC2 out and everyone agreed it has better graphics and updated AI and the like, but, the skeleton of the game is changed slightly. They've instituted all the MMO knowledge they've gathered and plopped it into a RTS. Forcing the player to be online 100% of the time, achievements, time sinks, the whole shebang.

I submit that StarCraft, WarCraft and Diablo originally were fun games to play because they were fun. They didn't have achievements or time sinks, they had maps and you played them. They progressively became tougher as the game went on as a learning curve towards harder content. Warcraft turned into WoW, Starcraft Laid a Bronze Egg, and I found the replayability to be very low as I am not motivated by achievements. Now we get Diablo. Real Money Auction House (they've watched and learned from Korean game makers and things like Steam), MMO interface, 100% online to play, 100% monitored gameplay, draconian authorities policing the game content.

Back in the day if you played in an open dungeon in D1, people would show up and gank the fark out of you, and you had to deal with it. There was plenty of rage involved, no doubt about it, but D3 is going in the other totally extreme direction with it's gameplay.

In the end, I'm not banking on the former games of the company because history has showed me with each release they bring forth, the games are getting worse and far more monitored and controlled. I stepped back, saw what was happening and realized there are better ways to spend my money. But, as I've said, when it goes on sale, I'll probably buy it. I will not pay full price for it.
 
2012-05-07 01:08:21 PM  

RedTank: The SC2 hate is pretty ridiculous.


Not really. The requirement to go through Battle.net alone is a serious issue; tournaments have had to cancel because bnet died or lagged out. Couple their always-online strategy with absolutely horrible social interaction online (in the sense that there's none; no chat rooms, etc), and you're left with a weird game that forces you to be antisocial in huge room of other people who are forced to be antisocial. Battle.net 2.0 is pretty much brain poison for everyone but Blizzard, who use it to make sure they can get a cut from any planned SC2 event.

Even if everything else was identical to SC:BW, SC2 would be a significant step down...and other than the graphics, I can't think of anything that was actually improved other than a few UI tweaks (like unit selection).

How does a time sink benefit the publisher of a game if there is no monthly fee associated with playing it?

Also time sinks are not simply a device for making money in an MMO they are also used to regulate the game somewhat, in almost in the same way that money pits (armor repair, travel, insane mount prices) are used. Without time sinks the populations of mature servers would be concentrated almost wholly in the final zones leaving the other zones completely devoid of population. Timesinks slow this effect somewhat as each alt still spends a lot of time in lower level zones keeping them populated.

If not, what I would do is find someone you know and ask to borrow their Starcraft 2 account, so you can download the game to your PC and try playing it.

If SC2 is unplayable, then you need a new computer.

No, I didn't try the beta.

I didn't even know it was coming out.

So, I can't still try it I assume?

And I don't know anyone with a Starcraft 2 account... gamers aren't in my usual circle of friends/co-workers.


LOL I know that probably comes as a huge surprise to some of you.

Bio-nic: surprised no one has offered to buy GB a new laptop yet O_o


I can picture trying to explain that one to the wife

"Why did you buy a copy of Diablo III?"
"because I want to play it"
"Why did you buy a second copy of Diablo III"
"uh......"

Because I wanted a separate account for Hardcore Mode.

Easy.

Whether or not any of you think Hardcore Mode is a euphemism is your problem, not mine.

Actually, there's a free trial for SC2 you can try.


Okay, I am downloading it... but as it is downloading, it says "No problems detected." with a green circle.

Is that just a good sign, or does that mean I'm in the clear?
