Re: D&D 4th Ed Good or Bad?

In general, if I find a whole bunch of people hating on something which is a significant change from some previous thing, I often find that this means that what they hate is the change, not the thing itself.

Re: D&D 4th Ed Good or Bad?

Well balance was there as long as the DM knew how to handle magic and magic items properly and put the party in situations that didn't make the casters shine all the time. I certainly don't disagree. I don't work for them, so I can't say with certainty, but 4e gave me the impression that a lot of t...

Re: Diablo 3

I think the constant internet connection is required because of the real live money auction house, they dont want ppl to cheat and create fake items That's a completely ridiculous argument (and yes, I'm aware that's their stance on it). If you want a constant internet connection for battle.net char...

Re: any chance of a random dungeon generator in the future?

For this type of game, were a random dungeon generator to be implemented, it would likely involve a large number of hand-made puzzles (or scripted variants of the same type of puzzles) that would then be randomly dropped within what would otherwise be a procedurally generated level. I, for one, love...

Re: Diablo 3

Won't support Blizzard or their continued push toward ridiculously binding DRM. Constant internet connection required for single player? No thanks, Blizzard, I prefer to still be be able to play when your servers are down (or my ISP is). Also, are you aware there are plenty of people in the world wi...
