FORKS!

I think they're going to probably have the long-term game better planned out this time. afaik Diablo 2 is still playable, and they kept adding more shit you could do in multiplayer. Like if you kill Super Uber Hell Nightmare Diablo and his brothers they each drop a unique amulet and if you and your friends each throw those out in the town square in a new game then Super Duper Uber Diablo with flames shooting out his ass shows up and you can kill him or something.

Ste, it's as addictive and perfect as any game I've ever played. I failed at least one college class specifically because of diablo

boy, was that Dan Fielding hungry for some cake! (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 15:19 (seven years ago) link

it seems to me that Blizzard is responsible for a lot of college students' poor GPAs

xp i believe they're calling this strategy "the auction house"

Nhex, Tuesday, 24 April 2012 15:40 (seven years ago) link

now i just want to play warcraft 2

PSOD (Ste), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 15:58 (seven years ago) link

man I lost so much of my life to Dune II, I have no idea if I would have graduated had Warcraft 2 been released when I was in college

two weeks pass...

anyone diving in? I keep hemming and hawing about it. I don't know whether I want to go for this or Torchlight II; I can't imagine myself playing two click to kills.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:11 (seven years ago) link

is this out yet? haven't heard from some of my buddies in a few days - pretty much preparing to be without friends for a year or two b/c of this

frogbs, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:14 (seven years ago) link

midnight tonight.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:14 (seven years ago) link

I'm in your position, Snap, don't know if I really want to throw down on this. But for Torchlight II I'll wait until the Mac port comes out, at least.

Nhex, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:19 (seven years ago) link

i think i'm in but i'm gonna have to put some real serious boundaries on it or else i'm going to lose a job

I thought they were trying for a same date release for the Mac version. If not, that makes the choice much, much easier.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:22 (seven years ago) link

talking Torchlight II, obv. Diablo III is both systems as far as I know.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:22 (seven years ago) link

We can check for you on this thread every few days if you want, forks?

Andrew Farrell, Monday, 14 May 2012 16:25 (seven years ago) link

please do. i have a date tonight that a BIG part of me wants to cancel in favor of going home to bed and waking up at 1am to play for a few hours before work.

by the time it's released computers will be obsolete

is this gonna be like starting with Return of the King

GM, Monday, 14 May 2012 20:40 (seven years ago) link

storywise? nah, you already know the plot

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Monday, 14 May 2012 21:10 (seven years ago) link

yeah, the plot/characters are the dumbest thing by far. it's kind of charming how they didn't try to make the voice acting any better

Nhex, Monday, 14 May 2012 22:07 (seven years ago) link

dammit dammit dammit, i'm trying to resist getting this but it's hard.

Jibe, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 04:19 (seven years ago) link

very tired and have work to do and buying this now
please keep an eye on me

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 05:46 (seven years ago) link

see you in hell

bnw, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 05:47 (seven years ago) link

Jesus Christ, we started this thread FOUR years ago. Not even GTA or Bioshock gets that much lead hype time.

Choad of Choad Hall (kingfish), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 07:12 (seven years ago) link

lol, servers are flooded, no one in the US can get on right now.

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 07:14 (seven years ago) link

i legit have work in a few hours; some things never change.

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 07:15 (seven years ago) link

battlenet and blizzard.com slightly sluggish to react, but I can click around in there and still get some action.

I'm going to wait on this one til the patches start coming.

When's the next SC2 coming, anyway? Next summer?

ERROR 37

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 07:20 (seven years ago) link

We’ll be back soon!

The Blizzard family of websites is temporarily unavailable. Thank you for your patience!

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 07:24 (seven years ago) link

ha, blizzard feared their servers would go down with the rush of people trying to get in. they were supposed to have a 45 second waiting time or smth like that to lighten the load on servers, but i guess that wasn't enough.

hah I actually thought the voice acting in D2 was pretty good, the voice acting in the D3 commercials/trailers was pretty cringe inducing tho

I agreed with a lot of this - IMO it's the same issue playing difficult NES and SNES games on an emulator, where you know you can just create a ton of save states and 'cheat' the game, which in turn makes the whole idea of playing it a lot less fun - you don't really feel like you 'beat' anything.

frogbs, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 13:48 (seven years ago) link

that article was a rollercoaster ride of TRUTH BOMB / WTF? for me. it did make me want to play his new game when it comes out tho.

Roberto Spiralli, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:05 (seven years ago) link

it made me wanna play diablo3 AND his game. The suggestion that a "number accumulator" isn't a game is ridiculous; I will buy D3 as farmville for hacknslash nerds though and own that. I love that he put up a number accumulator and his readers promptly played it to killscreen

It's working now btw; fired it up on my way out the door and it loaded.
party/date tonight, meetings/date tomorrow, pottery thursday WHY CAN'T I STOP TIME

"You're guaranteed to win" is the new "Anyone can write a hit rap song"

Andrew Farrell, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:17 (seven years ago) link

I think that man fundamentally misunderstands the purpose of a video game (in re dinofarms)

dayo, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:44 (seven years ago) link

There really isn't any sense in which that's beaten, though.

Andrew Farrell, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:45 (seven years ago) link

eh, he got through the normal playthru in under 13 hours.
at the very least it's devotion.

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:47 (seven years ago) link

wow, so he played it non-stop from the release minute? damn

Nhex, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 15:38 (seven years ago) link

poop sock

dayo, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 15:44 (seven years ago) link

seems like watching a movie on fast forward so you can win

bnw, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 15:54 (seven years ago) link

I got a guest pass from a friend, so I'm installing as I type. It sounds like the servers are back up too, which means I might get a shot to play it as well.

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:10 (seven years ago) link

Sadly, this seems too spot on (not surprised as it's by Tom Chick):
