Oct 3, 2009DSquared82 posted a message on Recent Updates on the Official Diablo Twitter Feed.I will admit, I am not a fan of twitter. I think a lot of my animosity towards it is the idea of every person voicing their opinion; or people (movie stars, musicians, etc) who think everyone gives a damn about every little thing they do.Posted in: News & Announcements
I did sign up for this reason only though. It's actually very unintrusive and if you have firefox you can get an add-on called twitterfox and it will display the updated twitter icon in the lower right of your browser. You don't see anything unless you click on it and you also only see the updates; not every persons comment. Anyways, I figure it's not so bad and lots of new info might be released through there.
Sep 30, 2009DSquared82 posted a message on Diablo II Patch 1.13- More Delays, Hopefully a Brighter FutureAwesome...yet another delay. Why did they even bother putting up the 9/2 post? Well, I guess I agree though that I would rather have a complete working patch...hope they can still keep the expanded stash though.Posted in: News & Announcements
I get it, the delay is being delayed.
Sep 29, 2009What other new gameplay features are going to be in-game besides runes(like the talisman, what ever happened to that?)Posted in: News & Announcements
How will they combat people just rushing the same area over and over again for items/xp? I guess what are they providing to make straight playthrough more desirable?
Will acts cross over different areas (example desert, jungle, forest in the same act) or will areas be isolated to acts (like A1 forests, A2 desert, etc)?
Is there, or will there, be penalties for death and if so what will they be?
Is there any news on mercenaries?
What types of items will merchants sell, since those in D2 really just sold useless junk?

Official Blizzard Quote:
Yeah, and that's cool. It was said I don't know how many times at this BlizzCon alone that we're always working against the issue of having too many effects that are too crazy and over the top going off at the same time. So yeah, it's always a potential problem. I just don't think our artists need to be drawn a schematic of how to fix it. They're paid professionals, they do this for a living.
Well, ok, he didn't say explicitly that they are toning things down; but they are aware of it....
Sep 22, 2009DSquared82 posted a message on Is it me, or are D2's cinematics better than D3's ?Hopefully everyone gets that the character intros were not the real cinematics by now. As far as the dialogue, I agree it was pretty corny and just sub par. For our sake, I hope the dialogue is better in the actual game. I can appreciate humor here and there (Horizon's urinal for ex) but too much would just make it silly. Maybe they are just having fun or just threw something quickly together. Plus, as said on here and by Bash, the graphics still have a lot of refining to go through.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
As far as the actual cinematic shown during announcement; yeah was beautiful, but did it have much to say....no. Reason being though is that they obviously aren't going to give away any story. Also realize that, if I recall correctly, the cinematics at WWI were pieces of whole cinematics.
I have faith that the cinematics will be at least up to par with D2. I agree too that D2 has/had awesome cinematics; I mean come on Marius in the insane asylum, the dark wanderer at the bar, Baal at Mt Arreat gates...all of them were awesome and the tone was just right.
OT, anyone else a little put off by Metzen being all "hip"? I heard him use "roll out/up" a bunch of times. Just annoyed me, I thought can't you just talk normal or are all Blizz fans now "gangsta" lol
Sep 22, 2009Well, I already am impressed, but I guess I'd be impressed ifPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
-It surpasses D1 and D2 as far as replayability, items, monsters, etc
-There are no best builds and enough variety in skills/items/runes to make multiple viable characters for multiple purposes
-They have tons of random world quests that are at least fun, if not meaningful
-They bring back D in a plausible way
Sep 21, 2009Really good read. Even if there is no new info, nice to get an inside look into how they develop the game. It's comforting to know that they are not afraid to "push the envelope" and then have enough sense to step back when it's too much. I think, if anything, this should quell a lot of fears about art direction. I think that's awesome too that they involve all people, even those outside of the company, in the design and suggestion process. That's the type of thinking that has made Blizz the powerhouse that it is today.Posted in: News & Announcements

Sep 20, 2009Well, I can tell you emo was coined from Guy Piccotto's former band Rites of Spring (he has been in Fugazi since the 80's) and he does not acknowledge creating "emo"...he just played the type of music he wanted to and people slapped a label on it. It's similar to straight-edge which people coined from Ian McKaye's (Also a Fugazi member) band Minor Threat who had a song title of the same name. He doesn't acknowledge creating the sub genre and thinks it's pretty stupid that people took it that far. Just a little history for those interested.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Plus appealing to teenagers by making angry or depressing music is like shooting fish in a barrel. I remember when this style was just coming out back when I was in a Ska band in high school. Well, might not be when it actually started, but i remember bands who played this way and it was the first time I ever heard anything like that. Why do people have to categorize everything anyways, most bands have a range of influences and even if you break it down further most musicians have a range of influences.
Sep 19, 2009I check this site every friggin' day, usually multiple times a day. I don't frequent normally on the weekends since I know no news will usually come on weekends. I don't know if I'm the majority or not, but I really come on for the news and discussion here and there. I'd honestly rather stay away from most debates too as they are kind of pointless since the game is in development. I do love the community though and there are a lot of good people on here.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Sep 15, 2009Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "mattheo_majik" »I completely disagree. It's so much more obvious what your getting if it reads :
Than if you get something like this :
If your say easy to compare by terms of generelization "yeah I got +1 to dex" then yes your right. But honestly, once your past the fact that you got +1 to dex, whats the next train of thought?
WTF is Dex doing for me......
But if they leave you guessing as to what does strength do for me apart from the obvious boost in physical strength, then I think it's utterly useless.
I was looking for a way to word how I felt about this and you captured it perfectly. On a side note...we have no possible idea what other elements they are implementing into gameplay. Just because they are getting rid of placing your own stats does not mean something better, more useful and more rewarding will not take its place. Maybe I'm confused, but won't stats just come from items anyways? So what's the difference between pressing a button in a menu to say "I want to use this item cause it boosts x stat which will increase x% of this".

Jun 8, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "goodguy8705" »How is this news worthy?
Secondly, the teasing occurs because of two reasons. People here are thrown into giddy tizzies when even irrelevant news is posted (this one). Oh, and it's so damn easy.
Forgot we have to consult goodguy before posting things. What's the point of being here if all you do is shoot people down.
May 28, 2008Yeah, it seems like things have died down. I come on and check news and diablo 3 chat a couple times a day still just to see what's happening. Seems like things have definitely subsided since may 1st though; but as we lead up to WWI I'm sure things will be 10 kinds of crazy again...plus still have to see what diablo3.com will link to now.Posted in: News
May 15, 2008Ok I get it, no one wants to have too much hope. I agree it's just going to let people down if nothing does happen; but I think it's pointless to not even have a little hope. I'm going into this with the hope that something might happen or be announced, but the understanding that if nothing is that it eventually will be. Considering recent events I would lean towards the former, but I guess I'm on the fence on this one. It's not like I just joined yesterday; I've been here for awhile, granted not as long as most and have seen hopes get crushed. And goodguy, I'm sure there is a possability that someone here does work for Blizzard. Irregardless it's obvious to me that they at least keep track of the fanbase and I'm sure they know how often we have/they have built up our hopes only to have nothing come of it. We will find out soon enough what happens.Posted in: News
May 15, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "goodguy8705" »Seriously, I don't want to have to be in here shooting silly theories down for the next few weeks. I did it for last years WWI and I'll do it again if I have to, I just don't want to have to.
This confuses me? You don't want to have to be in here? Who says you have to? I think people can have their theories and speculation as long as it's something they believe; even if they're wrong who cares? Just feels to me like you're being a killjoy. I think anyone has the possability to be right or wrong. Maybe we are all wrong? Last time I checked no one on here works for blizzard. It's fun to speculate because it brings hope; you can look all over the net the people here aren't the only ones who share in some of these theories.
May 1, 2008DSquared82 posted a message on Diablo3.com becomes Diablofans.com! Blizzard acquires diablo3.com.Posted in: NewsQuote from name="Duckman Drake" »Book looks interesting - are the Diablo books actually any good?
In response I have read legacy of blood, kingdom of shadow and starting the first of the sin war trilogy: birthright. I can say that the first three (legacy, kingdom, and mels book black road; haven't read yet) aren't connected in any way really. In other words they are all seperate characters, but do have characters from the diablo games pop in them. The ones I've read were very good so far (like legacy of blood the best out of the first series personally; talks about bartuc). Some generic plot lines here and there, but all around good read if you're into the lore and want to know more about it. The sin war trilogy is obviously one continuous story; whereas the first three (legacy, kingdom, and black road) are not. Not bad for the price; only like six bucks a piece since they're paperback. Got the sin wars brand new for less than a 25 with a gift card. Can't say I'm much into fiction either, so guess it's a good sign if I think that they are worthy of reading.
Apr 30, 2008DSquared82 posted a message on Diablo3.com becomes Diablofans.com! Blizzard acquires diablo3.com.I think like MD said it's a step in the right direction. Have to say I kinda expected it; sure there will be lots out there that will never come back, but I'll stick around even if it's just to post every now and then and just check up on things.Posted in: News
