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'm playing expert with a new Crusader and face-rolling.  I do have some great legendary gear though and I poached some gems from imported characters.

I'm loving the new streak bonuses, such as kill streaks, destruction streaks, etc.  They really change how you play the game, especially the kill streaks and nephalem glory.  Also, I think I just sent my first nemesis to someone.  After I got killed, a red portal opened up and something went through it.

Yeah there's also a streak where you get a movement speed bonus when you break 7+ objects.  Last time I played on the PC these were not in, so I am digging them too!

Gotta say the digital preorder and preload process was awesome. Game was all ready to go as soon as I was.

All digital, I don't miss the boxes.  So much easier to have available on my devices no matter where I am.  And it's going to be even easier with family sharing starting in iOS 8.

By the way, if you're like me and couldn't find the pauldrons that come with the game (this is PS4...not sure what is on XBO), then what I had to do was quit Diablo, go to Settings>PSN>Restore Licenses.  Once that finished, I loaded Diablo back up and had the pauldrons in my inventory.

Now, if only Blizzard didn't have stuff down for maintenance, so I can link my game to my Battle.net account.

Odd time for maintenance.  Glad that I linked last week.  I wonder if it's just down due to volume?

how does this tie in with battle.net? or does it at all?  I haven't logged in in so long, I may have issues with my token generator.

I don't have first-hand experience, but the reviews I've read say that the controller UI works really well and some people even prefer it to the PC version.

I found the console UI and overall experience to be 10x better than the PC version.  The only thing that sucked was the graphics on PS3 and with the PS4 update coming, I would say this is the way to play.  Can't wait!!  All pre-loaded and waiting for unlock!

We'll I can confirm too, just got the key card before starting the generator.  I'm already low on health so I doubt I'll make it.

I'm definitely crazy then. I just did this section and since it was not my first time I was poking around before the fun starts and I didn't make my way into that room even though I know about it. Will have to fire it up again and see for myself.

Spoiler for Hiden:
You sure it was the correct door?

Hmm... what difficulty level were you playing on? That might have an effect. I was playing on normal. There's also a bunch of youtube videos of people playing both the PS3 and PS4 versions that are able to get into the room.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Both of the following videos are set just before finding the actual door.

PS4 walkthrough:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyQUHWvx8a4#t=845

PS3 walkthrough:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDBY46K1FxM#t=387

There's a boarded up door right next to the actual doorway you need to go through, it's a small, isolated room with a bunch of security monitors.

Otherwise, not arguing with what you saw. I'm just curious if the designers implemented some kind of randomization, or difficulty level based changes in where you can go.

Maybe I'm crazy. Playing on normal only.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The room is definitely not available until you activate the generator.  I think it opens after you start it, if not until the infected attack.  This is definitely an area where you just need to use the shotgun and bombs to clear the area.  The bloater is slow and will go up and down platforms.  If you just shotgun the regular infected, you can easily take down the bloater from distance.

Actually:
Spoiler for Hiden:
The room is very much available before you turn on the generator, you just have to search carefully as it's a bit out of the way.

I know this because:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Grabbing the keycard also triggers the stalkers in the area to start attacking you, instead of avoiding you like they do before you grab the keycard or turn on the generators.

It's an area that can play out a variety of ways.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just played through this section last week and the door was boarded over before I touched the generator.  After the event, it was open and I could go get the keycard

The hotel basement generator sequence can kiss my ass.

Great game though!

Yeah, that sequence really sucked. Just figure out a path to run away without getting caught. You'll have a really hard time trying to fight your way out of there.

Wow just got here tonight.  Got eaten 3 times in a row, now I'm playing FIFA to calm down.  Do you have to find range key card to escape?

Spoiler for Hiden:
You can find the keycard ahead of time, you can also deal with most of the stalkers ahead of time too.

ANOTHER SPOILER! SPOILERCEPTION:
Spoiler for Hiden:
It's upstairs in a room on a desk, I think the room will look like a security room.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The room is definitely not available until you activate the generator.  I think it opens after you start it, if not until the infected attack.  This is definitely an area where you just need to use the shotgun and bombs to clear the area.  The bloater is slow and will go up and down platforms.  If you just shotgun the regular infected, you can easily take down the bloater from distance.

Even if you have a PS4 as your system there is plenty of stuff coming that's not first party exclusive that is exciting (IMO).  I'll be getting Diablo 3, Far Cry 4 and Shadow of Mordor just for starters.  Probably Destiny, GTAV, AC Unity and quite a few of the indie games.

Lame on Tomb Raider.  I bought the first one digitally and the definitive one digitally and played through them both.  Nicely rewarded for supporting the dev by not even releasing on the console I own.  BOO!

Military Quarter is much more difficult, I had to make custom decks to beat two of them.

I found this wing to be the easiest so far.  I used a new warrior build with lots of low level minions that I could pump out and it worked well.  I also got a real good roll going on a frothing berserker for Razuvious that was up to 18 AP which helped.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: August 06, 2014, 01:48:42 PM
I played against a guy with a gold character portrait (500 ranked wins) the other day.  Lost, but it looked neat.  My highest is around 40 wins with one toon.

Is it wrong if I think all developers should bow down to naughty dog?  Just wondering,

They should!  It's more mind boggling when they have people leave to go to places like Infinity Ward!

I agree with the above posters, you should think of it as a longterm and lifetime commitment.  We have 3 cats and the vet bills can get expensive as one cat has health issues.

I was able to beat the first two guys on Plague last night but the third one kind of kicked my ass.  He starts with 75 HP even on Normal, what gives?  I guess you're supposed to take advantage of those weird things that give you +8 to attack if you kill them?

Yes, it's a play on the actual raid encounter where you also use the spores to burn him down.

Looks like they are having trouble with wing 2 purchases.  I  just tried and it won't let me purchase the wing.  There's also a warning on the battle.net launcher saying they are aware of issues, etc.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: July 30, 2014, 01:18:31 PM
The 60 fps is really nice and makes the combat feel even more gritty and violent.  I would say it is not jarring at all, but rather amazing.

As the gaming media digs in little warts are starting to pop up.  

Quote from: Joystiq
Keep in mind, there are caveats to this promotion. EA describes that early access as a "a limited trial," and not access to the full game. Further, according to the fine print, Titanfall is "excluded from all EA Access features,


While there is some value I just don't like the idea for subscribing to a glorified demo with just extra content.  If it was the full game sans DLC this would be a win in my book

If it was full games then awesome, but timed trials is worthless imo.
