I agree with this guy. I'm a die hard Diablo fan, but Blizzard's demise started with the success with WoW. Ever since WoW was released they tried to mimic every game after it. Diablo 3 isn't a Diablo game.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Posted in: Off-TopicQuote from BagstoneQuote from IrrationalCan the people who have said "No" please speak up? I know it is a poll but it is kind of strange that all of you have voted and simply left.
I didn't vote yet, but I'd probably rather vote no (or maybe the third option, because you need to differentiate). I had too many IRL discussion with people to know from experience it's a waste of time. You see statistics like the one Xenocow posted thrown at you (I run on coffee, you can do the same thing for coffee, there are a million statistics to proof that coffee is lethal and another million to proof that it'll make you immortal).
Didn't read some of the walls of text in this post and won't read them now because it's too late over here, but I think someone touched upon the right point: it's not about legalizing drugs or prohibiting their use. It's all about educating people. (And whenever I talk to some drug users, I realize that's still a looooooong way to go.)
So change the drug education. I think I've said this at least 20 times on each of my posts. Change it so it's not "drugs are bad" based. Show the pros and cons of each drugs and the effects they have on the human body. Also teach them street terms and other things that can be useful. After review, people will realize that psychedelics aren't that bad for you and it's the heroin and PCPs you want to stay the hell away from.
Oh, and has anyone heard of the new Russian drug called Krokodil? Holy mother of fuck! Scary shit.

If you don't think like me then you clearly aren't a person. Therefor I know everyone's motivation for playing the game.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from zimiraPoE doesn't have Hell, crazy demons, insane cutscenes, or anything from Diablo 3 but it kicks its ass because it respected why Diablo fans played Diablo. They wanted a dark fucked up game. People wanted to feel depressed when they played the game. They didn't want a feeling a hope. The original Diablo fans thought WoW was fucking gay as fuck. Warcraft fans and Diablo fans don't get along by definition, and Blizzard didn't get this.
I don't remember getting depressed from D1 or D2. All I remember is the item hunt, every drop felt like it had a chance to be good.
Neither do I recognise the hate the 3 game branches fans supposedly has for each other and the other games. Personally I love D1,D2,D3 and still I have loved and played lots of WoW and some Warcraft too.
I liked D3 too for a while but then it sucked when I realized it wasn't Diablo.

I answered. If God existed then he/she would be a horrible person. He let shit hit the fan and didn't care at all. I would hate him if he existed, and I would not let him acknowledge any ownership over me.Posted in: Off-Topic

I have to agree here. It's dumb to just say use what you want, because even if you said here you can use and buy the cleanest purest cocaine crack, meth, heroin and whatever else you want in the world, it doesn't change the fact that people will still use it and eventually want to use more as they get used to the high and then eventually they'll OD and eventually they'll get high enough where they do something reckless that doesn't just endanger themselves but others as well. This is the one and only problem I can see.Quote from cexeeSome conclussions in this thread are just... mindblowing. Use whatever you want, do whatever you want; but only as long your willing to suffer the consequence of your actions. Dumbest shit I´ve ever heard.
Marijuana is fine, doesn't really do anything anyway, cocaine is a useful drug but in a very controlled manner, say as a replacement for vike's or Oxycontin. It really depends on the drug. One thing is for sure though these drugs need to be well tested and researched before anything gets done about legalization. We can talk all we want about how this or that should be legal but without the right medical research we can't know for sure exactly how much is okay, how much exactly is bad, which are the ones that have the pros outweigh the cons. Stuff like this needs to be answered.
If a drug can make you kill someone or do something reckless, it shouldn't be legal. PERIOD. The only reason Alcohol is excluded is because you have to be stupid to get that drunk. It's not as easy as one would think. I've been drunk plenty of times but I never ever get to that point and I never will because I don't need to. Understanding the effects of a drug goes a long way.
So I can easily say that you must be that stupid to get THAT high. It's never an easy topic because there isn't a clear line when you try to exclude things. Honestly, I wish that most people would never do heroin or PCP, because those are the drugs that tend to fuck people up. However, it's extremely hard to give it a reason to be illegal when you are legalizing everything else.
Also I've been that drunk. It's very easy to get very drunk especially when you're in a college party environment where everyone is just raging their tits off. No one wants to get belligerently drunk, but when you're in a good mood, you're talking to girls, Lil Jon is playing, you're heart is beating fast, and you just don't give a fuck, it's so easy to cross the line. Again, this is no reason to make it illegal, the same goes with other drugs. You have to put into people that maybe taking twenty lines of coke isn't the best idea. Will there be accidents? Of course. EDUCATE PEOPLE! Don't tell them "don't do drugs". Tell them safe ways to use them, overdose levels, addiction, the positive and negative effects, etc. This would save soooo many people from throwing their lives away and killing themselves.

Posted in: Off-TopicQuote from NoombaIf all drugs went legal I would put in an extra effort to live in the good part of town. I imagine the number of bums would grow as more people try drugs and end up destroying their lives. I hate most bums, especially the ones pan handling outside of shopping centers where they could get a job if they just walked through the fucking door. I have noticed more and more bums showing themselves in my area, to the point where I enjoy counting them now. Some of them have pretty funny signs, which earns them a some loot. Some come with their whole damn family, babies and all, they don't get shit. You have the wounded gimp ones who I feel bad for, but I give them the stink eye because I am a bad person. And then you have the ones with essay signs claiming their wife has cancer, I hate them the most, since cancer robbed me of family, and I just feel like they're lying. This one bum has his bed set up right on the mother fucking shoulder of the free way. I could high five him going 60 if I wanted.
I think the heavy hitters should stay illegal, the ones that can fuck up your life and make you lose all you have. It's never fun to see someone turn into a withering shell of who they once were, begging for more destruction. And the less bums the better.
Define a heavy hitter. Where do you draw the line?

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from torsodeathThanks for responding, but that is exactly the unproductive responce I would like to avoid in this thread. Serious, what does that accomplish?
The Game lacks a bit of soul and substance, but I think it is slowly improving with each patch.
What would you REALLY like to see added into the game? Dead babies on spikes and hung off gallows (Diablo 1 style) isn't going to make the core machanics of this game any more entertaining and enduring....is it?
Yeah I do want that. That's why I played Diablo. It's a dark game with twisted ideas. It's why people are turning towards PoE instead of Diablo 3. They forgot who their target fan base were. Bring back the fucked up endings where your character fucks up humanity of the guy you thought was the angel is the demon. Bring back the lakes of blood. Bring back Hell. Bring back your silent character. Bring back everything and throw all of the WoW influence out.
