Curious about Stronghold Crusader 2.  I've heard good early reports that it fixes many things from Stronghold 3, but I'll wait and see how it turns out for real.

Hmm, after looking this up it appears it won't be launching until September 23rd.

I started playing this a few weeks back for some reason, maybe due to anticipation of Diablo 3 on consoles.  It seems like I find it more enjoyable and compelling than Diablo 3 on the PS4, though, since I'm back playing it again before finishing D3.

After a couple hours of playing I picked up the Avengers pack when it was on sale on Steam so I could play as Hulk.  For some reason I didn't realize that the character you choose at the start is the one you get for good, otherwise I might not have chosen Captain America since he's already in the Avengers pack. I guess it doesn't matter too much, I've spent almost all my time playing Hulk anyway.

Anyone else still playing this?

I didn't really care for these movies, but I tend to think vampires and werewolves feel pretty dumb in most movies.  The only reason to watch Underworld was Kate Beckinsale.

That extra polish, where crack teams of level designers hand place those crates and overhanging ledges that you inexplicably climb onto during chase scenes.

Believe it or not, but they've actually completely overhauled the control scheme for this game, and what you're describing is no longer going to be an issue. From what I understand, you've got a dedicated button for running that won't send you up walls, a button that makes you climb up, and a button that makes you climb or jump down in a safe way. They even made fun of the same thing as you in one of their recent videos and bragged about how they've solved that problem completely.

I really want to believe, but after buying Black Flag and being bummed that the same old controls were there I'm pretty hesitant to jump in again.  I'm glad they are at least acknowledging the problem and trying to correct it, though.

Quote from: JayDee on August 28, 2014, 07:09:10 PM

Playing this thing basically solo and I'm having a blast still and I'm still only in Act III and level 41. Haven't even hit the good stuff yet.

I'm right about the same point.  It's farther than I made it playing the PC version originally, so I'm glad to hear "the good stuff" is yet to come.  smile

I don't really play much multiplayer, but Diablo 3 is perfect since you still get to experience the Nemesis and gift stuff.

thanks for the code, not buying this one.

Care to elaborate?  What didn't you like about it?  How much or what parts did you play? 

I like the idea of the huge open world to drive around in with tons of activities and missions, so I'll likely give it a try.  I wasn't a huge fan of the handling for some of the cars in the previous beta, but others felt fine once I got used to them.  I'm hoping these early betas are giving them enough feedback to polish things that people complain about consistently.

Not having participated in a closed beta before, are there restrictions to publicly posting comments? I didn't see any mention of an NDA, but then I didn't read through the multiple pages of the license  Roll Eyes

They removed the NDA towards the end of the last beta period, so I'm assuming that still goes for now.  Feel free to talk about it all you want.

Has anyone else checked out the new Netflix Original cartoon Bojak Horseman?  I've watched a few episodes and it seems pretty good to me. 

It has Will Arnett as a washed up 90's horse actor, Aaron Paul as his stoner roommate and seemingly Patton Oswalt as a new character each episode (so far).

Wonder ... whether Google will break the export to youtube that twitch has used.  Or if Amazon will and force you to export videos somewhere else. 

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.  I know a lot of people were using the export to YouTube as their long-term video storage so it'll be interesting to see what Amazon comes up with for that.

The bummer is that PSN has been down most all of today, so no fancy mail items or Nemesis events either.  Dang Sony...

I find it strange that I've gotten Legendary items mailed to me from several other people yet I haven't found one to mail out yet. 

And still no Nemesis invasions either, which I'm maybe not so sad about.  slywink  But I'd still like to see them.

Thanks Rogue - I think I've already got 3 gifts from you lol!

As far as Act lengths, it could just be me but I always felt like Act 1 was the longest.  Act 5 blew by for me so quickly, but it could have been because of the anticipation.  You can certainly extend the length by exploring every open door and increasing the difficulty, but in terms of generic "size" I still think Act 1 is the biggest.

I haven't played Act V, but isn't part of this game exploring all of the dark corners of each area?  Or is that just me?

I need to add some of you guys to my friends list. I have exactly one friend on PS4 which is Hetz. I feel like the last kid picked for the kickball team.  icon_frown

Here is the thread with the link to the Ultimate Friends List document.  I'm definitely down for more friends on my list for the Nemesis attacks and such, but I don't tend to play much multiplayer. 

On another note, I started a Monk last night and am enjoying that much more than the Crusader for some reason.  Maybe I was just tired the night before, or maybe the speedier attacks felt better, who knows.
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 21, 2014, 07:06:01 PM
Well, I know I used to like hack and slash games with fat loot a lot, and in general would say I still do.  Hell, I was just playing Marvel Heroes 2015 last weekend and enjoying it, and that's basically online Diablo with superheroes.

I didn't like Diablo 3 on launch for many reasons (auction house, bad loot because of balance for AH, always online/server issues, etc etc).  Hearing everybody say this was the definitive version that fixes everything and adds magical action combat made me want to try it again.

We'll see, maybe once I get past the content I know I will have a different opinion.  Or maybe I need to change classes.  I chose the Crusader since everybody said they loved it so much, but it's not super interesting to me yet.

So where should you live?  I seem to be geared for Scandinavian countries.  Too bad they are so cold!



A few days ago we had 31 degrees celcius in Denmark, or 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

Well it's summer.  That's a pretty typical summer temperature in most parts of the States. 

Being so close to the northern water it seems you guys have much more temperate weather than places like the continental US midwest. I grew up in North Dakota, which looks to be both hotter and colder than Denmark from the data I can find.

I've probably only played a bit over an hour of this when taking out time for outside distractions, but I feel like I'm the only one not seeing the magic.  It didn't seem to change anything about Diablo III to me beyond making the UI harder to use.  I think I was expecting too much based on everybody's glowing praise.

And to me the combat just felt boring.  Hold down X, occasionally hit R2 and pop square when it's available.  I moved difficulty up from Normal to Hard and that made it even more boring as my Crusader now just had to keep hitting each enemy multiple times.  I was literally falling asleep fighting enemies at the end it was so unexciting. 

Hopefully it gets better soon, otherwise I'm going to regret buying Diablo 3 for the second time.

Would any of you guys recommend going Expert with a brand new character? Or is it better to just stick with Normal/Hard until you have some decent gear?

I can't say from personal experience, but I know Jeff at Giant Bomb was saying even Hard felt far too easy to be called "hard".

Potentially dumb question, but it always seems to me that even though I have the Steam News page as my home page on my browser, some games get released on Steam without me knowing. Is there a page on their site that lists everything being released as it is released? I do, btw, check their Recently Updated page which is handy as well.

If you just go to http://store.steampowered.com/ and scroll down to where it shows Top Sellers and click on the New Releases tab they're all shown there in order of release (newest at top).  This used to be the default tab but they changed it to the Top Sellers tab a few months ago since they started letting older games re-release on there.

There is also a Coming Soon tab that shows games that are releasing soon (those that have a release date entered for them).

No hospitals in Colorado or in the Los Angeles area from what I can tell, so I guess I'm clear as well.

All of these data breaches are getting really annoying, though.  Especially since these places require your social security number even though that was never supposed to be used as an identifier.
