Apr 8, 2013 Diablo III vs Path of Exile Thoughts? I just downloaded this game and it seems to be a rip-off of some sorts. Anyone ever played it or know much about the end-game? I made a toon and giving it a quick whirl, but D3 is just leaving me bored nowdays. They seriously need to update the content in this game. Path of Exile...might be my "path from Diablo 3" :(Wrain2 Apr 8, 2013

Apr 3, 2013 POE makes diablo 3 looks too light I did not notice it when playing diablo 3, but after switch to POE , it remind me of the dark atmosphere of diablo 1&2, that is the way diablo 3 should be. Blizzard is setting the wrong tone for diablo 3 at the beginning...KDR6 Apr 3, 2013

Apr 3, 2013 Would you play ARPG STARCRAFT - FpS I've played Borderlands 2 and watched a bit Hots game play, then I realized how awesome it could be if StarCraft would be an RPG like Borderlands like a First person shooter or 3rd person. We can put some points in the skill trees and upgrade some weapons. An MMO would be also awesome if we can get more than 10-20 people defending a base against some zergs rush. As a Terran, we can play a Marine, Ghost, Marauder, Reaper and drive some Tanks, Hellions, Viking, Thors and Battlecruiser.... and so on for all classes. So my question is : Would you play Starcraft RPG or FPS?Souligna27 Apr 3, 2013
Apr 3, 2013 Age of Empires II HD http://store.steampowered.com/app/221380/ See this? This is a HD remake, of a classic game, that was awesome, and also had a good bit of people who preferred it over the sequel. And I have the want to buy it as well :) Blizzard, take notes on this...Espionage7247 Apr 3, 2013

Apr 2, 2013 Just as I'm starting to get back into Diablo 3... ...I get an invite to Marvel Heroes closed beta. The PC gods are laughing at me. Don't get me wrong, this doesn't mean I'm going to up and quit D3. I think it's miles ahead of where it was at launch, but MH is definitely going to compete for my time now sooner than I thought.Reignmaker8 Apr 2, 2013
Apr 1, 2013 Defiance MMO Shooter + T.V. Show! I'm really excited about the launch of an MMO Shooter that coincides with it's own SyFy T.V. series! You can watch the first 14 minutes of the T.V. show on SyFy! Link: http://www.defiance.com/en/series/video/2634770 I personally love the story line. As for the game, it is a cross between Borderlands, Rift, and Gears of War. Very funny review of Defiance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ryzJnhgtNQU List of a ton of reasons why you should consider buying Defiance: http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/602/view/forums/thread/380878/Reasons-you-SHOULD-buy-Defiance.html Ending Note: In my 16 years of playing MMO's, this is a first for me to see a T.V. series and an MMO co-exist. It will be cool shooting stuff and exploring the game while tuning in every week to see the T.V. series!Raserei1 Apr 1, 2013

Apr 1, 2013 Are these guys real ? At 2010, Stardock published a game called Elemental : War of Magic aimed as successor for Master of Magic. It receive lots of negative review. At Q4 2012, Stardock published another game called Elemental : Fallen Enchantress, they acknowledge that they have disappointed their fans so they provide the E:FE free of charge for those that have bought E:WoM before november 2010. To my suprise, they are about to release Elemental: Legendary Heroes which is stand alone expansion for E:FE. And they STILL gave it free of charge to players that bought E:WoM before november 2010. ------------ What envied me so much is their forum atmosphere is amazing, try browse it.. http://forums.elementalgame.com/ The players are very positive and supporting.

Mar 29, 2013 Hero Quest! Remember that? That was an awesome board game! Trying to remember another one, it's "board" was a huge tarp of a battle field, it had chaos knights and chaos arhcers who had mohawks, they weren't orcs. I don't think it was warhammer. Any thoughts?Goose0 Mar 29, 2013
Mar 29, 2013 Myth - a board game like WoW http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1700755582/myth-0 Myth - a board game on Kickstarter. Kind of like WoW in a board game. I would love to see Blizzard take on board games with their IP's... Not copy Risk or Monopoly in Azeroth or Char or something, but actually make board games that feel like the world they would be representing.Detective1 Mar 29, 2013

Mar 27, 2013 Buying a computer tonight! My tax return comes in tonight. I was wondering, with a 750$ budget.... What should I get? Is it difficult to get Diablo 3 to run on Windows 8? Or stick with Windows 7? Lastly, I kind of figured on a Dell XPS 8500 because I don't know enough about hardware to put something together....hoping someone can come through with a prebuilt that can run D3 on higher graphics settings. Hopefully someone answers before tonight. =)Unzero5 Mar 27, 2013

Mar 26, 2013 Diablo 1 question Hi, I don't see a better place for this thread, so here I come. I'd like to replay the game again, but what irks me about it is no "show items on floor" function as D2&3 do have, is there a way for the game to always have the drop highlighted or does such a mod that would allow it exist? Thanks. Well, not yet :P I'd also like to know which is better, to play latest patch of original D1 or Hellfire instead? Thanks twice lolAzgalada6 Mar 26, 2013

Mar 26, 2013 Share With Me Your Personal Gaming Lore And here I am as many predicted would one day happen, returning from the depths of long forgotten tomes of times gone by. I'm here on a mission, however, and you all are the ones from whom I require assistance. In about a month's time I'll be giving a lecture at the Wisconsin Game Developer's Summit in Milwaukee Wisconsin (http://wgdsummit.com/) entitled "Personal Lore Through Community" during which I'll be discussing the importance of enabling players to craft their own story whether in games or real life. In order to do that, I'd like to utilize some anecdotal evidence from people I have known and from those of you I've never known. So here's what I'm looking for: Please post here some snippets of awesome times you've had in WoW (or other games), ranging from accomplishments, silliness, adventures, stories, role playing or events that aren't necessarily a part of the game, but you made happen in your own ingenious ways. Thanks everyone, I'm looking forward to reading your stories!Slicedbread6 Mar 26, 2013

Mar 26, 2013 A few games for mentioning if bored 1. Far Cry 3 - I do not know the name of the graphics engine, but outstanding game play on the PS3. The over all story line is great, and the open world/sandbox(?) is a delight. 2. Looking forward to Dead Island 3 - zombie smashing....just fun to kill stuff 3. Still play EQ every now and again 4. Had played Lolly Pop Chainsaw....a ridiculous game with great sound track 5. Never played BioShock and feel I am missing out....have only heard good things so far 6. Borderlands 2 - loved it. But to each their own. 7. Lastly - duct tape and your own imaginationZeusMitsui0 Mar 26, 2013
Mar 25, 2013 Why is PS3 beating XBOX 360 so badly now? When they first came out was like there really was no good games for PS3. Now the 360 is like complete landfill. So many PS3 exclusives and I am pumped for the last of us and until dawn 2 awesome survival horrors. Throw in God of War Ascension I can't really name all its too much. When I hear xbox 360 its like do I look retarded to play some trash that you can get on PC with superior graphics and ontop of that pay to play online on this trash box? Who is even dumb enough to pay just to play online?JOHN23 Mar 25, 2013
Mar 25, 2013 New computer help I'm going to college soon and my current laptop is about four years old so I need to upgrade. Diablo 3 is the most demanding game I play so I want to get something nice since on computer I normally play on I usually leave iTunes, Skype, and Steam open.hat can run this on maximum settings. If possible a little breathing room so to speak would be Also I thought that that you couldn't replace the processor in a computer but I googled it and you can so is there a part that isn't really upgradable or limits how much you can upgrade your computer? I would like to be able to upgrade the computer in the future, so if there is a part that does limit how much I can upgrade, I would like to maybe find a computer that advances there.Exis2 Mar 25, 2013

Mar 24, 2013 Finally caved and tried PoE. Diablo 3 is better. I know the anti-D3 trolls who lurk these forums 24/7 will bombard me with hatred, but I can honestly say that Diablo 3 is objectively a better game. I'm not saying "I liked Diablo 3 better" nor am I say "I prefer Diablo 3 over Path of Exile, personally." No, I'm literally saying "Diablo 3 is a better game." First of all.. Path of Exile is a fun little game, but it does have flaws, and those flaws are irredeemable. It's simply not as good a game as D3, and we can expect this from a Free 2 Play game, I'm fine with that, but the idea of spending any real amount of time playing that is laughable to me. The thing is so clunky.. the inventory space is so ungodly low and the barter system, I don't call it "complex and deep." I call it "needlessly convoluted." Note, I didn't say "needlessly complex", I said convoluted. Because it's really not complex at all, it's just plain annoying. There are many frustrations in the game, including the ability to perma-gimp your character. The mini-map is also horrid, and the game doesn't facilitate party play very well, in which it doesn't share any of D3's neat features for making it easy to keep up with the team and stay in the same area. Anyway, that's my two cents. I didn't get TOO specific because I know the haters and trolls would just say I don't know how to play it and that's why I didn't like it. I'm just saying the game feels very primitive while you play it. Diablo 3 is incredibly polished and shares none of PoE's flaws. It's objectively a better game in every aspect.Paz70 Mar 24, 2013

Mar 22, 2013 Free to play isnt enough.. (feedback? or rant..) Im not sure what you are trying to accomplish with your free to play yu gi oh game but after the crap i witnessed in this game... I think you have to pay me a few bucks to play it + another 40 essence for hots. I dont know about you ladys and gents but i for one learned not to pre-order games.. I blew my money on this game but atleast i saved a bunch by not buying SimCity, Hots, Walking dead survival instincts, aliens colonial marines and a bunch of other titles... D3 was a powerfull lesson.. you cant just blindly follow or trust your favorite companys. I should be excited about the announcement of the card game yet i find myself extremely doubtful.. You have to do something better than that if you want to restore my (or our) fate in you blizzard.. Im not buying or playing your games guys.. Im sorry.. im realy not.. not after all the crap in d3 and wow.. free to play or not.. its just not enough. Im deeply offendedPowerThirst0 Mar 22, 2013
