lawl. i bet anything i can go through my first solo playthrough of the entire game without dying. i always play great defense in games. even when i first started playing hell in D2 i never died solo. its just when more ppl join and you get 1 shotted by something stupid only because they have insane power cuz of the extra players in the game.
This isn't going to be something they are proud of before the game comes out, realize that casuals don't like dieing, then make it easier right :(?
It is people like you that are responsible for the long release date, Blizzard putting extra time to adjust their games for both casual and hardcore gamers. This game is supose to be hard, the hell you talking about ? And honestly, if casuals dont like dying wel... i wish i could finish the sentance but not this time. God, people like you make me so mad seriously, please play another game and forget about D3.
Isnt that just the same old Vid that we saw at BlizzCon... they made it sound like its "accompanied by exclusive gameplay footage", whats so exclusive about a Vid from BlizzCon 2011? Why make a Blog entry about some old news... especially when they then mentio that the gameplay isnt up to date Oo
They basically show us outdated stuff that is already on the net for a long time... yay.
Yes it's exactly the same old vid. They postpone D3 to Q2 time window, that's OK (not really) but meh, and now they fool us
with 6 months old stuff. This really pissed me.
I don't really think they're trying to "fool" us. It's good that they're not throwing out end game content for analysis, I think they're just trying to get the message across. I, for one, am competely psyched to see the graphics and end game in act 3 - 4. Gonna be epic!
While I'm up for the challenge, even more so now then back when I played d2, it did provide some troubling info. Like the remakrs about "died almost instantly to AoE". That isn't really fun. While I'm sure there are ways to counter it via kiting, traps, what not. I just don't think mechanics like that are good for any game.
There is a reason why WoW stopped doing most "instant kills" in ways like that. And its a lesson I think d3 should employ. Though its hard to judge it completly off of just a statement. But it makes it something to watch and hope its not in the most direct meaning of the statement.
