It only took 6 hours or so to level to 70 before and now with the Gem of Ease it is under 3 hours from lvl 1-70 on frsh character.  It's very much all about 70 and adventure mode/rifts/grifts

I can't really wail about gamer preferences changing. Except I guess in my days of Diablo I and II, maybe even in terms of City of Heroes for the few months before WoW launched and stole its thunder, is people seemed to play more in those days because the act of playing was fun, act of splurching monsters and doing so through fun, mostly randomized environments (D1, D2, I mean; not COH) was fun. And it wasn't necessarily only to reach the cap and then just keep expecting the game to spit out end game loot repeatedly like a Pez dispenser.

It just doesn't seem like gamers actually enjoy playing games anymore. They don't enjoy the journey, that is. They want to reach the end and get all the best stuff, and then complain about it not really being the best stuff, and nothing new to do, why should I continue playing? This seemed similar to how people reacted to Arrowhead's Gauntlet reboot. Race through the levels, complain there's "nothing new to do" and then stop playing.

At least that's what I glean from the official forums. Perhaps they don't necessarily represent a broad enough view, and I'm oversimplifying the gaming world today.  icon_smile

As much as I like Diablo 3, I said it long ago but once the vision for the game moved away from a number of the things that many D2 fans loved, this was more or less inevitable.  D3 was designed from a skills standpoint so that you would never have to reroll, and I think many people like that style.  But because of that flexibility, you lose the subset of gameplay that involves committing to concrete build choices and sticking with them, and everything that goes along with that style of game.  I completely lost count of the amount of times I started a brand new build with a concept in mind in D2.  But each time I did that, I'd go through the entire game again.  Sometimes people would skip me through portions or I'd get power-leveled, but more often than not, the group I played with would always go through the full game again.  And again, and again.  And it was fun.  I don't think anyone ever got to max level, so there was always that small carrot dangling, and good loot just seemed so much more precious.  In D3 it really is like a pez dispenser and so much of it is just dumped, even legendaries. 

In an odd way, I think D3 just gives players too much, too easily, without consequence or commitment, and that ultimately ends up hurting its longevity.

The 800 series had smooth, youthful skin.  We spotted them easy, but these are new.  They look geriatric... wrinkles, hearing aids, Old Spice smell, like to watch Matlock, tell rambling stories, everything.  Very hard to spot.  I had to wait till he moved his walker with tennis balls toward you before I could zero him.

Do you think when we're old the kids are going to say "old people, smells like Axe body spray, likes to watch The Simpsons, always playing videogames..."  slywink

I found the last "lawyer" bit particularly funny, the rest not as much as I'd hope.

Just a general comment, I'm still surprised, but I am really enjoying this show.  Actually both this show and The Flash keep surprising me with how engaging they are.  I was concerned about the Flash's tone being inconsistent with Arrow given that they are in the same "universe" but somehow they are both managing to maintain very separate identities while overlapping nicely.  (Although I can't help but think Felicity would have called Barry over to help take out the Juggernaut and his minions, but oh well.)  Kudos all around.

Whether they respawn or not is irrelevant. You will be attacked by wild animals:

- Whenever you need to be stealthy
- Whenever you only have one bar of health
- Whenever you barely survive a vicious shootout
- Whenever you've almost beat that mission that took you five tries
- Whenever you are on fire
- Whenever you are swimming
- Whenever you are sprinting
- Whenever you are running
- Whenever you take a breath in real life because the developers are sadistic assholes who enjoy tormenting their customers

Really, your only escape is to get in a vehicle.  However, then you'll have to listen to Rabi Ray Rana.  Honestly, getting eaten by an eagle may be a better deal.

I followed the instructions from Sony. Copied the save game files only.

That's why you jump to the 30 minute mark. He's live streaming on Twitch today too. Seems the game is ready now, wonder what they are waiting for?

Anyway, I watched the gameplay part, and I don't know. Maps that have tons of space debris (no idea if all maps are like that) with random open close points for entry just seems odd for a starship game. And that you can modify all your ships at any point seems a little too loose (and all the equipment is just a boost to a number, no real differences it appears). Do your ships carry with them every spare part you can imagine and can then install it in the seconds just before a battle starts? Yes it's a game, but stuff like that takes me out of it a bit. And then planets are just resource generators that you don't get to improve, it left me wanting just a good 4x game, even if it's simplified. I'll still buy it, might be a fun time waster for the iPad, but I was hoping for a bit more I guess.

What files are you trying to copy? Saved games? Sony should have step by step instructions on its site for how to do this, in that case. Games can't be copied.
