It's back!  With the Wicked Witch of the West - and 100% more Diablo 3 screenshots!!

I must be playing Diablo 3 wrong, since I didn't become a knight when I hit level 16 and I don't know how to beat Level 23.  Also, when I finished the "Trailing the Coven" mission, it didn't play the ending cinematic.  In another ABC-Diablo 3 connection, the voice actor who plays Tyrael was on Castle last week as a drug lord.

Here's the infamous video that's the source of the second part of the above .gif.  There's no way the final game will look anything like that, as the graphics in the video look like a PS2 HD remake.

Quote from: Lordnine on March 05, 2014, 06:50:40 PM

The WiiU has certainly taken its time to get going but right now it has a WAAAY better selection of exclusives than the XB1 or PS4.  Given that most games coming out in the next couple months are also hitting on PC I donít see that changing anytime soon either.

The problem is that third-party support for the WiiU is all but dead.  The current library, the upcoming first-party games, plus a few other announced games (like X and Bayonetta 2) are pretty much all the Wii U will ever have.

I don't really understand the dislike for the Under The Dome (TV series) finale.  We got some answers (where the dome came from and its purpose), but it left enough mystery to make me look forward to next season.  Were people under the impression that the series would be ending with the finale?

As for the book, I agree that King has a problem with endings, but I thought Under The Dome's was one of his best. The middle of the book dragged, but I loved the beginning and ending.
Guess I'm of a different opinion as I thought the beginning and middle were great, but once he revealed the cause of the dome, the whole thing fell apart.  nevermind the ending act itself. 

Spoiler for book specific spoilers:
the propane/c4 bomb, the descriptions following afterwards detailing the horrible ways people died and the leather face alien child.  I felt the writing during the destruction was gratuitous and unnecessarily detailed and the entire set up for it was over the top.  Then you have the deus ex machina of an alien presence removing the dome, simply because someone asked. 
I felt that the resolution was a cheap way to end the story and was hoping for a study on the breakdown of society with no controls and dwindling supplies.  instead, we got an ending that even Michael Bay and Roland Emmerich would back away from. 

I was also hoping that the book would be more the breakdown of society, but once I realized that wasn't the book's focus, I was able to enjoy it for what it was about.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The destruction was certainly on an epic scale, but I didn't find it gratuitous or unnecessary.  I also think you're oversimplifying the ending.  The dome was put in a place by the whim of a child at play, so it made sense that it would be removed in the same casual manner.  It also wasn't just because someone asked; it was because Julia was able to make an emotional connection with the alien.  The aliens ignored Julia's pleas to remove the dome until she was able to forge a connection through the story about her childhood.  This bit did seem to come somewhat out of nowhere, but it was still more than just a simple request for them to remove the dome.

The Clone Wars animated series is coming on March 7.  They'll have the first five seasons, the Clone Wars movie, and the unaired 13-episode sixth season.

I"d love to see a return to the GBA-style Mario Golf games, but I'm glad World Tour seems to have more to it than the bare-bones Mario Tennis for 3DS.  X looks great, but I wish they'd have had more to show.  I'm also looking forward to NES Remix 2, as I'm really enjoying the first one.

If you're not maxed, then you do get additional Norende villagers when you add friends.

Is there something special you have to do to get regular friends added to the village?  I have a bunch of friends in the game, and I can do everything else with them - Abilink, summon, etc. but the only ones who show up as villagers are the random "internet friends" you can get each day.

I'm really looking forward to Danganronpa, and it's been getting excellent reviews.  I'll get Lightning Returns eventually (still have to finish XIII and play XIII-2) and Toukiden and One Piece : Romance Dawn are maybes.

Fable Anniversary
Bravely Default
The Wolf Among Us Episode 2
Outlast (with PS+)

I'm also interested in The LEGO Movie game, but I know next to nothing about it.  Since I'm still playing LEGO Marvel and just started LEGO City Undercover, I'll probably wait until this goes on sale (which seems to happen very quickly with LEGO games).

It's going to be a busy week slywink

If you've never heard of Rymdkapsel, it's already out on the mobile market and it's a pretty fun little... uh... tower defense Tetris basebuilder strategy game?  I don't think it has a ton of replayability once you master the game mechanics, but I was pretty well glued to it for the while that I played it.

Better get it quick before King.com sues them for copyright infringement, claiming that people will think "rymdkapsel" is Swedish for "Candy Crush Saga".

Might & Magic X Legacy for me.  I bought the Early Access version when it was first available, so it will be nice to finally have the full game.
196  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: January 17, 2014, 09:47:08 PM
I think the show has been really coming together in the past few episodes.  Initially, the lack of Marvel stuff was disappointing, but it's actually allowed them to start building an interesting world of their own.  Between their own creations like The Clairvoyant and Raina and the use of obscure Marvel villains like Graviton and Blizzard, the show is building its own world and I don't really mind not having the more well-known Marvel stuff.  If they can keep this up, and we eventually get the payoffs for all the things for which they're laying the groundwork, the show has the potential to be something really special.

Killzone Mercenary would be a lot more tempting if it didn't require 3.5 GB of space, plus whatever the upcoming patches take.

No, no, no.  Eddie's supposed to come in an tell everyone how great Tales of Xillia is, not complain about Vita game sizes.   icon_lol

I've been slacking on my RPG proselytizing lately, but I vow to do better smile  Xillia is a really good game with a fantastic battle system.  It's also more streamlined than most RPGs, so Xillia is a great place to jump in to the series.  I prefer Tales of Graces f, but for $10, Xillia is well worth it.
