So you stopped 3 missions in?

I'm still loving it.  Totally hooked.

My only gripe with the cutscenes is they sometimes overuse the text bit.

To me, they've totally captured the Max Payne spirit and updated it.

I definatly agree. This game rocks. There is alot of holding your hand thru the game, but it's awesome.

For me, having an economy that isn't completely broken is totally worth it.

I agree, and this isn't on the same scale as D1 or D2.  It's much easier to have a smoother launch with a fraction of the players even if it's 12 years earlier.

This would be a whole lot easier on people if they stop even referring to it as 'single player'.  there IS NO SINGLE PLAYER MODE.  You can group with yourself and go solo, but it's still not single player mode.  More like an instanced MMO.  The mindset makes all the difference in frustration. It's not like you're playing Super Mario Bros and get disconnected right before you jump on the flag post.

Agreed, this definitely should have been made clear.  I wouldn't have paid any attention at all to the hype or been disappointed if I had known this was not a single player game.  I have zero interest in playing Diablo online or with other people.  Between the SC2 cash grab of splitting one game into three and now this...  Blizzard has thrown away the credit they had built up for so many years.  Very sad.

Funny how BioWare tanks when EA gets involved.... now Blizzard has missteps in the first two games since Activision got involved.

You don't have to play with anyone, you can choose to keep your games private.

Every Blizzard launch is like this, even before Activision got involved.

Except with Diablo 2 there was less rage because we could at least play offline singleplayer while b.net is down.  Not sure why they didn't include an offline mode with D3?
I agree with that though.
1527  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Diablo 3 coop friends wanted! on: May 16, 2012, 04:24:40 PM
Aside from my buddy in colorada, whom will be getting this on Thursday, I have no others willing I play coop with me. I'm assuming it's fun as all hell, so I wanna try it!

Does d3 have voice chat built right into it? Pretty easy to set up parties? Throw some info to me! Also, and the main reason I posted, who wants to play coop late night? I will even tonight probably!

Edit: I found my one answer... No VoIP. Wierd. I am a fan of Skype if anyone is down. Skype on my iPhone is a godsend at times.
1528  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Had anyone tried out diablo 3 on a mac? on: May 16, 2012, 04:20:28 PM
I just posted in the d3 thread that I also have good performance on my Mac thus far. Really happy about that. Too bad Starcraft 2 didn't run that well for me. Oh well, this is more up my alley anyways!
1529  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: May 16, 2012, 04:17:55 PM
Yeah, I don't serve the issue with coop. I only played by myself so far, but I'm super stoked to play coop! But, you DON'T have to..

To recap for us Mac players out there, I'm running a 2.8, 512mb ati, 4 gb at mostly high settings with vsync and fsaa on and it runs great @ 1920x 1080 16:9. Very little slowdown at all actually. I'm sure I could tweak it a bit more for a few more fps, but it doesn't seem needed at all.

As far as gameplay goes, it's absolutely awesome. I had to force myself to go to bed at 5 am, then force myself to not call off work to play more...
1530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: May 16, 2012, 07:14:22 AM
Seems back up. Played for just a few mins, gonna hop on in 5 and check
It out a bit more before bed. BTW, it seems, at least at the wry beginning
To run well on my Mac. Seems this will be a ton o fun!

I've played a number of characters to level 5 and 6 and luv this game. It's freaking Diablo and that's exactly what I wanted. But why can't I adjust stats as I level?

I can't decide which character to press on with but I'm really digging the monk.

Edit: I'm playing on a 27" iMac and it's running really well at full rez. I have shadows turned down but that's the only thing I tweaked.


What I wanted to hear!!!

It can't be worse than the other night when me and a friend in Florida were using the vita
Party chat and playing golf.. And drinking..

That being said, and I'm sure I will ruin this by saying it.. I used to be all quiet when she was sleeping then i noticed she said I woke her up on nights I was being quiet, not the loud nights..So, why be quiet? icon_lol

Edit: I'm downloading diablo 3. After buying this game already today... Now I have to be quiet..

I'm curious to hear from anyone playing the SP campaign how it compares with the 1st 2 games. I loved the comic book approach to telling the story in those games and I'm wondering if that's back and if so, is it done as well?

I'm interested in this as well. I would only be getting the game for the SP campaign and I'd like to know if it's worth it.

Well, I'll post later today. After the gamespot and ign review I'm sold. Looks awesome. I'm grabbing it on the way home from work and will play later tonight I'm sure of it.

Wife doesn't do sea food, and no alcohol is allowed in our house, any recipes for chicken?

Think about a potential menu or ideas/likes/dislikes you both have and I'd be more than happy to provide suggestions, options, and step-by-step recipes should you be interested.   icon_biggrin

My wife is of Welsh decent and I am Polish/German, so we have a definite appreciation for foods from those geographic regions, and then just general American Farmer's cuisine, if that makes sense.  If we eat meat we eat pork, chicken and beef.  I personally will eat pretty much any type of meat, but those are the ones my wife eats.

What about an herb and mustard crusted pork loin (very German) roasted over locally grown root vegetables (the Farmer's element)?  Even if they're not locally grown per se, you can get creative by using things like fennel, parsnips, celery root, rutabaga, but the old standbys work very well also (carrots, potatoes, onions, etc).  Prep is simple, mostly involving peeling and chopping vegetables, but once that's finished the oven does the rest of the work.  Plus, as everything roasts for over an hour you'll have free time to relax together while the wonderful scents permeate the kitchen.  You could even add a side salad of fresh ingredients and your own homemade vinaigrette with whatever flavors you choose.  

And as apples compliment pork very well, a sparkling non-alcoholic cider would be the perfect beverage to accompany the meal (for some reason a type of bubbly always makes a meal feel more special).  

EDIT:  I also just thought of some dessert ideas.  If you have a farmer's market in the area, think about getting your root vegetables there, but for dessert you could also pick up some fresh fruit, grill it with a sprinkle of brown sugar, and then top with a yogurt-honey-mint sauce while still warm.  Plums, peaches, and nectarines grill well as does pineapple, and even watermelon.  

There you go.  German mixed with a little American Farmer FTW.   thumbsup

Awesome sounding! Not to derail thread even after mothers day is over, but... :nod:The forums here need more food talk!!!

Since it's on special, and I've had it in the backlog for a while, I fired up Company of Heroes.  I'm hooked.  Between the voice of Steve Blum in the tutorial and the combat through the first two missions, I really like it.  

I saw that on steam and was about to grab it for 1.99 then realized it was only the pc version and not Mac... The Mac version is still 50 on app store!!!!  finger

Didn't play much this weekend yet...@ all... Probably some torchlight later and some hotshot golf on vita as well. Still debating on either getting max Payne 3 on ps3 or diablo on Mac... Can't do both his week or the wife will shoot me..

Just finished watching Giant Bombs 42 minute quick look, and I must admit it looks pretty good. However it unfortunate that it's out right before a bunch of major game releases.

I would really like to get this if I had more time to play, seems fairly innovative. Reminds me of a more polished and expansive version of the game Section 8

That's my issue as well. A huge backlog, numerous titles coming out that I want, not enough time or money to get all of them...then this game comes out...

I'm about three missions into the SP campaign, and it's a lot cooler than I was expecting, honestly.  It doesn't feel tacked on.  Sure, each new mission is easing you into a new facet of gameplay, so it's like an extended tutorial, but they seemed to have put a lot of effort into it.  There's a decent story that's been animated in a stylized way.  And I'm finding the AI to be entertaining.

Please stop talking... I already want this too much...

Are the bots? I never cared for SP anyway, but like the way games like Unreal Tournament and Brink take games - awesome online multiplayer with an offline practice where you can play any of the multiplayer maps/modes offline with AI bots.

Even if it doesn't have bots I'll still probably buy it anyway.. as soon as someone runs a $39.99 special for it.


Same here. I really want it.. For 40 bucks..

Anyone else here have a love for (almost) anything frank Zappa? it's a shame I never got to see him, and that he passed so relatively young. During his career that lasted a few decades he released over 80 albums! Holy-shit-fuck! Anywho, I've seen Zappa play Zappa numerous times before with his son dweezel and others that played with Zappa and its always been awesome. Then I saw "project object" which also has ray white and a few others of Zappa's players. So tomorrow I'm seeing a third celebration of his music in the form of "the grandmothers of invention" featuring nepolion Murphy Brock, Tim fowler and others, who also played with Zappa for many years. So any love for fz found around here?
