    posted a message on BlizzCon Tickets Round 2. PLUS: Blizzard unveils new game... FAILOC-ALYPSE!
    That happened to me within the first few seconds. I had an error and was booted out. I didn't want to buy tickets - I just wanted to blog the experience of being in the queue.

    I already have tickets, but it was interesting to get booted out of the queue right off the bat. I got back in quick enough though, and I got all the screen captures for the process to blog about it.

    Congrats to everybody who got tickets!

    posted a message on Jay Wilson - A hint on the next class
    I can imagine them using some sort of name like "Marksman" for the upcoming "ranged-class." I believe this was something talked about before - when I saw this interview last year I certainly picked up this particular detail. I didn't find it very surprising though.

    Hopefully we'll find out soon enough! Blizzcon is around the corner! (And I'm going!!!)

    Oh my god that is amazing! The detail is exquisite, on all of them! I wish I could make costumes that good.

    HEY there is one more Diablo related costume! Mistress of Pain!!!

    (official artwork reference)

    (alternate reference)

    Surely that is her.

    I believe there is one that is also a barbarian male, if I'm not mistaken. ^_^

    both are pretty unattractive for celebrity standards :S

    I hope your so-called standards aren't ones that are comparing these two against people like Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan. I like to see the less-than-perfect ones more than the want-to-be perfect ones.

    posted a message on Stupid Kiera Knightley Ad
    Quote from "Genesis" »
    No amount of money or adverts will sort this problem out. If they wanted to sort this problem they need to start locking people away for proper amounts of time, none of this slap on the wrist shit. Same thing goes with lots of problems in society. Sadly, criminals rights > victims rights

    And if they're going to make an advert about it, they should of used a nameless actor. I think that would have more of an effect anyway, because with Kiera Knightley, all 50% of the audience is thinking is... "id tap that".

    Means of prevention that are harsh are all well and good, but I think the purpose is to create awareness. Many women believe that this sort of thing will never happen to them which makes them more susceptible.

    posted a message on Customizable Faces
    Quote from "Airandius" »
    You should be able to set your age somewhere between 20 and 60 years. Just so you can look young, middle aged or old.
    And some other minor things that were mentioned before.

    It would be easy to implant a system to adjust certain sizes. But it's rather pointless, but tattoos and random things.

    I'm not sure if age variation would be the best kind of customization for all the characters.... personally I'd find it a little bit odd to see some old Barbarians whirlwinding mobs. At that point they'd be worried they'd break a hip.

    Speaker for the Dead is my favorite of the Ender's series.

    He just came out with a direct sequel to Ender's Game (the period directly after it) which is called Ender in Exile. I hope to pick up a copy soon.

    Read it, like it. But what does "author's definitive edition" even mean?

    He has several editions and some of them have the author's preface. He added the preface in later years to better explain and to commemorate the 10 year anniversary or something like that.:P

    posted a message on Player Generated Content, or...
    The biggest concern I would have in user-generated copies is the cross-over of items and how one would play on these custom maps. I can't really see any mechanics as of now that would really add diversity or customization that the WC3 platform had....

    If players were able to create and develop other areas of Sanctuary I think it would be really neat... I just would want it to be exclusive to that content. I wouldn't want people romping around in my Closed Net games with ridiculous gear that was tailored in the customized content.

    posted a message on D3 Collectors edition
    If there is a collector's addition I think it would be morally amiss for me to pass up.

    Well perhaps not that far, but I think this game of all games would merit the extra money put down on that.

    Quote from "Number1SuperGuy" »
    It's a good book, and a GREAT storyline, but in it Card puts too much focus on neat sci-fi ideas rather than crafting an interesting world. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book, but it's just not one of his best. This probably stems from the fact that he wrote it when he was younger. His later books are much more involved and epic-feeling.

    Really? I thought the sci-fi ideas took a back seat as he developed the storyline around the relationships that are presented to Ender and how he adapts to them. :cute:

    The Battle Room was cool and the Dr. Device weapon was a neat concept... but I thought that played fairly little significance to the overall story.

    Quote from "Blackwing" »
    Are you calling it a clone Nocturne?

    I think I made it rather clear that "diablo inspired" gameplay would be a much better descriptor. Cloning implies identical replication, in which case no "diablo clone" is or ever will be.

    Sacred 1 mirrored many more aspects of Diablo 2 than Sacred 2 does. I view Sacred 2 as an evolution - and, by the looks of it, Diablo 3 will be incorperating at least some of the aspects that were unique to Sacred 2 such as skill modification. Albeit the means of modification is different, the principle is the same.

    Anyways, inspiration can make a game go in many directions. Sacred 2, in my opinion, provides a very similar feel of ultimate Diablo-style gameplay yet allowing for much more than what Diablo 2 ever could have given.

    [EDIT]Quotes of Equinox are not canon. One can easily equate similarities between the two and make the "diablo-clone" assumption. It is based on perspective and I see many cross-overs between the two games. I also like the two as complete separate games. In other words, they can be treated as mutually exclusive but one may also view it as a clone. I prefer to see it as a mixture of many elements and you can take of it what you please.

    Quote from "Comedian" »
    I REALLY REALLY think is Diablo only.

    If it truly is Diablo himself then I suppose the better question to ask would be "how did he regain his body and why has it taken this form."

    Quote from "FreezeMe" »

    I was just looking through screenshots for these d2 clones and thinking that they must have all been high on crack when they decided it looked good and was laid out well. I've been pretty critical of blizz about even small things in d3 because i know they are capable of the best.

    I think this falls under the category of "judging a book by its cover."

    But in all seriousness, is that really all you did? You just looked at screenshots of some diablo clones? What clones may I ask? Perhaps "Diablo-inspired" would be a better descriptor, but I digress. Screenshots can hardly portray anything about gameplay besides user interface and perhaps one battle that was snapped for the shot. I just find it odd that everybody wants games to be their games. Perhaps the games you play must meet the standard of "every screenshot must be brilliant."

    Anyways... Blizzard is able to do what it is doing because of its prolonged success in its previous games. Many other game producers either do not have the background experience or they do not have the time leniency or manpower that Blizzard does. Blizzard can afford to push back release dates and have ridiculously vast production times when many other second-rate companies must work to a deadline.


    Long story short... I'd recommend actually playing the games you're rejecting before passing judgment. ;)

    [EDIT] You say that you have played "most" of the games you're referring to - perhaps you're just looking in the wrong places. Try Sacred 2.
