    the video prob cost 500,000 dollars to produce, or even more
    Supposedly it's just one of the many cinematics Diablo III will have.

    Always nice to hear if so.
    If there is one thing Blizzard does one really well, it's making videos :)

    posted a message on ASDW controls?
    Mouse+left,right, 1-5 was fine for Diablo 2. But you're looking at a whole new generation of gamers now.
    And simply "Having it there as an option" wouldn't hurt anyone.
    It's 8 directions, sure. But you can still click any other angle with the mouse. And you click with the mouse to attack. (or walk, if you choose to do so)

    Really though, the more options the better.
    You can use ASDW quite easily (we've been doing it for a generation and a half using NES and SNES controllers, even modern day playstation controllers still have the 4 point controls). Which is why a hybrid control would be so much better than "just the mouse".

    You can move around with ASDW for ease of access, less mouse clicks, less RSI.
    Then when you get into combat, you use the mouse to aim and click any angle just like normal.

    Of course, people will fear it because it'd be new and different, but you'd still be able to play "just with the mouse" if you so choose to.
    You'd just allow different playstyles for those who wish it - and in all likelyhood, hybrid controls will outperform those focused solely on the mouse and 1-2-3-4-5 for skills.

    It's how we play WoW, and that's a 360 degree game as well. Would a 2D topdown game really be "that much" different, that we suddenly need a mouse to be able to play in 360 degrees? Surely not.

    posted a message on ASDW controls?
    Since D3 will have (tentatively) console support, is it reasonable to suspect there will be ASDW / SDFE control support for moving your character around?

    Click to move is ok, but personally I think being able to contol your character with mouse AND keyboard will make for a much better experience for the more adept players than "just the mouse".

    posted a message on Diabolesques: White Items!
    Quote from Daemaro

    Well white items in the other game could be found socketed and used to make runewords, there is really no use for them in D3 as of now except to sell.

    Anyways it's just a funny comic, nothing too serious. :P

    Great job again Calavera!

    I hated that aspect... i dont want to keep around white/gray items in the off-chance that you "might"need them for a runeword later.
    It completely de-logicifies the quality = value aspect of loot.

    some junk gray items could be worth three times as much as a unique in D2... thats really annoying as it means you have to pick up every single item in the off-chance that it might be worth something, rather than be able to tell whether its worth
    * walking over there
    * picking it up
    * evaluating the item
    * keeping it around to trade later

    total waste of time and space.

    I notice from the achievement that its class specific.
    I guess it's a way to promote people to try out all the classes and get the extra achievements?

    Derp.. really now..
    Either we use the stash and enjoy it, or we make alternate accounts to store extra items.

    Why not just make it easier for us and keep the stash LARGE?

    T_T Very disappointed.

    Lineage eternal might be interesting as well.
    Rusty hearts is "in progress".
    torchlight 2, might be worth trying if its cheap.

    And then there's always updates to some or other things to keep an eye out for.
    WoW isnt really even on my list anymore. >_>

    Guild wars, looks good.

    Mass effect, good game no doubt, but has EA all over it, and won't be on steam.
    Not going to touch it - more should boycott EA and their damned Origin crap.

    Most HC characters die to the lag monster.
    I'd do HC, but i know that battle.net will lag at a critical point and kill off my hard work.

    It just makes it, not worth doing.
    Perhaps a bunch of achievements might sweeten the deal.
