I thought this was an action game, not an MMO.
If you don't like rushing, you have the option not to. But some of us don't like playing the entire game through in slow agonising pace for the umpteenth time.

Aug 6, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Warlord55" »they wont support mods, the only games i really now that support mods a free roaming rpg's(elderscrolls) and i dont think any game company will support modding for a online game
NWN and NWN2.
In my opinion all games are open to the mod community. Just look at the countless nude hacks for MMOs, all have been asked to cease and desist and Blizzard even took measures to stop it. They just find a way to work around it, and no one ever gets banned because of it.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Johnny_Death" »That's why I said "I wish they could", not "I think they should."
My overall point is that I believe the petitioners are, well, assholes. They all give off a vibe of entitlement and act like they understand everything better than Blizzard, the people who have sat down and worked on the game for several years now. And these petitioners feel that their initial reaction and 10 minutes of reflction is more substantial.
I'm of the belief that both sides of the pond are totally idiotic, both the petitioners and the ones opposing them.
It's all turned into moronic trolling, like Creepsville, who only comes into threads to make insults with no real argument to back up any post he's ever made.
He also likes to quote wikipedia in an attempt to prove his point, but if he had actually gone to college he would understand that wikipedia is a bad source for ANYTHING because if so many people agree the moon is made of cheese, the entry says the moon is made of cheese. If he spent actually two minutes in google instead of quoting a wikipedia entry, he may actually have something intelligent to post one day.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Johnny_Death" »Well obviously. I know a bit about PR, sir.
Are...are you calling me a hippie?
My experience has always been, that anyone who believes you can tell a customer to "fuck off" either has never had any substantial work experience or doesn't think their job is worth having.
My views may be slightly skewed by the fact that I'm typically a team leader in jobs I've had in the past.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Johnny_Death" »I really wish Blizzard could just say "fuck off" and be done with it. They do more fan service than any other game company I know of.
Bad company move.
The moment you tell your customer "no" everything goes to shit.
Go out and get a job.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Creepsville" »Mannnnnn - people are soooooo bad with terms around here. They don't know what Cartoony means, stylized, cell shaded, or even High Fantasy.
All of you stay in school!
I've told you what High Fantasy meant, now stop trolling.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Daemaro" »This isn't ONLY about putting guns into D3. It's about the POSSIBILITY of guns being in Diablo. I said this before. It might not be probable, but it's possible.
Sanctuary is a ever changing world, much like our own. There will be new items whether it's guns or not.
I agree it would happen, but it's a long ways from seeing functional skirmish use. Which is what most fights in Diablo are.

You won't be able to play a pirated game online!
Damn illiterate Pirates, Piss me right off!
I pirated my copy of D2 and the expansion and regularly play online.
I had the keys but an odd accident involving a cat and cat pee destroyed a bunch of my game CDs.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »So, guided arrow couldn't be brought to the gun somehow to use magic to help it stay on a straight trajectory?...
Wait, this is Diablo, of course it can't. Magic only rips apart the most fierce monsters and brings the dead to life, it can't keep a tiny little ball in a straight line. *Eye roll.*
I actually said this before you.
Like my other idea for gun-like devices that shoot spells, it would be ridiculously overpowered.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Daemaro" »Are you seriously arguing that the Amazon is so strong she can reload a crossbow all she wants just because she's "magically imbued".
You know how much strength and stamina that would take to continuously reload a crossbow THAT fast?
She might as well be bare handed because with that amount of strength and speed she can punch holes in brick walls.
I say we give Shelled a jester's hat and paint his face, because that's all his good for. Making us laugh.
Actually she can't. Oddly enough, the Amazon has the slowest attack speed with the crossbow. Only time someone used a crossbow was for Buriza Do-Kanyon.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »Except, Strafe isn't magic... Strafe is simply firing really fucking fast...
And guns would work with a "Suspension of Disbelief" as well...
It's spiritual magic. An achievement beyond the means of the normal person through intense training and likely a shitload of meditation (I believe the skill says that).
We call that magic. If someone levitates them self through pure strength of will, what does it look like to someone who cannot comprehend it? It looks like magic.
I already gave suspension of disbelief that a gun could be fired fast. The next problem is an advancement called rifling, and the introduction of the minie ball, which were not invented until the industrial revolution. By the looks of it, accurate guns in Diablo are several thousands of years off. Not twenty.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »Actually, I did bother to read your post, of which I wish I got that time in my life back...
Strafe=non-magical. Strafe=skill. Strafe=non-deity-related.
Fucking explain strafe.
Strafe works because of suspension of disbelief.
This is the third time Ive said this.
I've agreed that it could be possible for someone to load a gun in an insanely quick period of time. This does nothing to change the fact that it would still be inaccurate, skill with a gun actually meant how fast you could draw and arm it and point in the right direction. A gun only killed when fired en masse. A gun would receive no bonuses from dexterity.
A crossbow, even if as slow as a gun, was more accurate due to fletching.
Enough with the strafe thing. It's a skill in a video game, it works because the developers wanted it there. And it is magic, in the same way Assassins have psychic powers kind of magic. It's a magic she has to draw from within herself, like the Shaolin monks in our own world who can break boulders with their bare hands.
Just because Europe was retarded and went into a Dark Age, setting all scientific achievement back a thousand years, doesn't mean the crossbow was not the most deadly weapon of the time period.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »So you can have unrealistic bows, but if you have unrealistic firing rate of guns, then "OMG TEH DIABLO IZ WOD!!!"?
Oh yea, plenty of sense. Plenty of sense.
If you bothered to read my post I said I could believe someone had the magical prowess to load a gun exceptionally fast.
But if they wanted to hit with the same frequency as a bow, they would need a Guided Bullet spell firing all the time.
Your dexterity and hand-eye coordination don't mean anything when a small round ball can hit the wind wrong and go flying 4 feet off target.
Aug 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »Yea, figured that you couldn't give a goddamned straight answer.
Either that or you think that that strafeazon is realistic. (By the way, strafe is a skill she learned, not a skill granted by her deities like multishot.)
Suspension of disbelief is present in every game you've ever played. Including those trying to be as real as possible.
