Re: Diablo 3

However, eventually somewhere towards the end of this decennium everyone has stable internet everywhere, and then "always online" comes as zero annoyance to any user as they will be always online. Then it only makes sense for everyone to use it as a copy protection, as by then it no longer comes wi...

Re: Diablo 3

Define good. I never bothered with LoL, because I dislike that system. I don't mind pay to play, but I do mind games where you can pay to improve or unlock more. Once that's started, where's the limit? I don't play LoL either, but as I understand it nothing you pay for impacts the game in any funct...

Re: Diablo 3

Didn't they want to do that with Starcraft II initially Yes, they did. They pushed a little too hard with it up front on Starcraft II, fortunately (for them) doing so paved the way for them to do it even harder with D3 (which they did) and are suffering less complaints this time around. This is the...

Re: Diablo 3

why not? just think of it as an MMO where its accepted that you are always connected Maybe because it isn't an MMO? You could make this same ridiculous statement of every single player game any of us own. Maybe Almost Human should have included constant-connection DRM with LoG. Sure, it's a single ...

Starlight Inception Kickstarter

Not sure if anyone else here is into these kind of games, but Starlight Inception has about 10 hours left on its Kickstarter and still needs a good chunk of funding. It's another genre of game that has felt really neglected in recent years and I'd love to see what they can do with it. At any rate, i...

Re: Brilliant game up til Level 9. I won't be finishing it.

I knowingly started a old-school game on Hard, I get that. And I loved it and built a pretty good party, and despite that ended up in an unwinnable state. To be clear: You chose to play the game on the hard skill setting and with old school mode enabled... Then you decided to stop by here and throw...

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

No, you couldn't. So-called "Single Player" D2 on b.net is exactly the same as what they are pitching as "single player" for D3.

Re: Diablo 3

Aha, well that certainly sounds probable. However with Diablo 2 you couldn't switch back and forth between single and bnet with the same character. No, but you could play Single Player on b.net (i.e. constant connection DRM, same as Diablo 3), but you ALSO had the option to play alone, disconnected...

Re: Diablo 3

thats the price you have to pay for being able to switch seamlessly between single- and multiplayer mode with the same character, then it's still probably worth it for most players. That's a price they want you to pay because it improves their bottom line (more people with forced exposure to the Au...
