I finally got to level 18.

I really don't like when people start games and go AFK and then they have the first turn and just have to sit there.

And I know this sounds silly/old/etc, but why does no one seem to say "good game" anymore?

There's no chat to be able to. All you can do is emote "well played"

That's what I mean. It used to be common back in the day (a month ago) for everyone to say well played at the end of the game. Now it seems rare. I used to greet everyone as well before I realized I was the only one doing it.

I am old, and rarely play online games, and this is kind of why. The person across from me might as well be a computer if there in no interaction. On the other end of things, if there was free chat, I would have to turn it off because everyone is an ass online.

Nevermind me. icon_confused

I hear what you're saying, but I am glad there's no chat in this game.  Blizzard clientele are notorious grade AAA Internet Dickwads.  Chat would ruin this game.  As it is, I squelch every opponent I play.  I don't want to hear anything, be it greetings or taunts.

Also, those of us who have already played the game can try it with the new difficulty setting they plan to release for the PS3 version, no doubt it'll be in the PS4 version.

I really hope the new difficulty ups the intelligence of the human AI. I hated how you could create kill rooms really easy as enemies just mosey into a room one at a time to be killed. I'd love to see more varied situations where enemies will just recognize you're holed up somewhere, and just wait you out while taunting you, or charging in with multiple people after throwing a grenade.

And I wonder if they'll add back in the female hunters as enemies since one of the reasons they were removed from the PS3 version was memory limitations as opposed to concerns about violence.

They confirmed on ps blog that the new difficulty setting will be included.

yup, the image is displayed on the web store right now.  although, given the link is broken, I'd say either of two things will happen.  they'll pull the image from the banner rotation until it's been properly announced, or the link will actually go live later today.

I wonder if they are waiting for PAX East to announce?

I'm amazed at how much faster leveling is now.  On release, my Barbarian played through the game 2 1/2 times on the increasing difficulty levels.  Took me 44 hours and I ended up at level 52.  My Crusader is about halfway through Act III on Hard (16 hours in), and is already at level 45.   eek

Really enjoying this Crusader.  It's my favorite of the melee classes so far.

I think this weekend is running 50% bonus XP also

missed the earlier response, but I don't have any suggestions unfortunately.  what's the Vita get for connection speed?  

Here's what I get at work, which based on the average of 10 tests after removing the highest (DL 16.6/UL 25) and the lowest (DL9.7, UL2.9)

Download (Mbps)
14.2

Upload
13.6
 
this is the most likely cause behind the pixelated performance I've run into, but never resulted in a complete drop.  I'll test more at home when I get a chance.  

I don't get it, but my Vita never gets more than 6 MB/s, even though everything else gets 20-24 MB/s
Here's my results at home, after 8 runs and no major variances
DL
14.2
UL
2.2

I won't get a chance to test this later, but I'll try to use up some of my bandwidth to drop DL down to what you are getting and then test remote play.  

I wonder if my vita wifi is borked?  I just did a bunch of tests from my bedroom and my phone gets 24 mb down and 4.5 mb up.  Vita gets on average 3-4 mb down and 1-2 up.  I tried resetting all the vita settings and it still gets the same.  I wonder if my unit is defective.

Amy Hennig is now at Visceral games and is working on a new Star Wars project.

Poached?  If so, this is a good sign for Star Wars games.  Hell, even if not, it's a good sign for that project.

Not poached, she was either forced out of ND or quit due to disagreement in direction and found a new home with Visceral.

I have an apple time capsule that has the built in airport express.  I set my Vita to not connect directly to the PS4 and it still is awful.  All of the computers here and cell phones and tablets all get 20 mb/s+.  PS4 is also wired with LAN cable.  If I leave the room that my PS4 is in, then during remote play the vita gets pixelated and drops the connection.  For me, the application is basically useless.  I can't use the Vita to remote from my bedroom, which is directly above the playstation.  Not 10 feet difference.

Considering remote play from my PS4 to my Vita is pretty awful within my own house, I can't see how PSNow would be playable at all.  Is anyone able to actually play games with remote play?  Is there some trick to get it work correctly?  My Vita gets awful download speeds, mostly less than 5 MB/s, but my computer and iOS devices get 20 MB/s on average.

There was a Blizzard guy who strongly hinted, a few days ago, that the distance between the PC and console releases for this game will be really short. It could happen within the next 2-3 months.

Also, other hints indicate that an Xbox One version might be released at the same time as the PS4 edition, even though they have refused to comment on the potential existence of an Xbox version.

They commented the other day that it was in development, but that no contract had been reached with MS so that was that for now.
