We've been making drip coffee with Peet's House Blend for years, unless it's holiday time and we buy the Peet's Holiday Blend.  I love the stuff!

On the EU blog, ND seems to have responded to a comment asking if they would be a discount if you bought the PS3 version and Season Pass.  ND said they are looking into things like that and would get back to the community.  Hoping I didn't screw myself by pre-ordering.

Wow, so I just saw that the PS4 beat the XB1 in the new NPD. I seriously didn't see that coming with all the Titanfall hype and (rather desperate looking) firesales and bundling going on at various retailers for the XB1 as of late.

You mean Titan-fail?  I kid!  I'm still buying the sequel on PS4.

I wonder if there's a chance they'd add asynchronous play.  It'd be nice to be able to have a number of matches with forumers ongoing even if we never log on at the same time.

I would like that for forum games

Of course their search is so broken that you can't find it by searching. Had to find it through a Twitter link.


I think it takes a bit to show up once any app is released.

I installed this during the weekend while waiting for my D3 people to show up and am addicted to it.  I don't really know what I am doing deck wise but found a guide for a starter Mage deck and am actually winning some games.  I am afraid to alter it with new cards though as it appears to work sometimes.

It's a lot of fun (imo) to play with your deck and try new things.  You can create multiple decks, too!

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.
