Just wanted to give you guys a heads up and tell you that our Deus Ex: Human Revolution podcast will be going up later this week.  And don't worry, we were sure to avoid story spoilers!

On the final boss fight for real this time.  I've got to say that the game has gone to absolute hell.  The story jumped the shark, the level design is just awful, and I'm just not having fun with this thing anymore.  Honestly, I'd love to talk to people who are giving this game 9/10.  I've started hitting undo on the random blocks.  How is that great game design?  Am I supposed to be happy when all of my progress is halted because of chance?  I'm so pissed right now I can't even see straight.

I've got to say, the last night in the game may be some of the worst game design I've seen in years.  This has got to be some kind of cruel joke. 

Edit-
It's not the last night.  It's the escort mission.  And it is terrible.

I'm with Adapheon.  The rune system will offer an insane amount of character customization and style.  Just look at the rune page on the D3 website.  These stones don't just change the look of the skill, but they radically change the effects.  Now, combine these stones with six available active skills at any one time, and you have an insane number of options available to the player.  Whether or not top tier skills completely outclass lower tier skills or what kinds of cooldown periods will be imposed remains unknown, but I'm super excited to try it all out.  I've said it on the podcast and in my reviews; I don't really care about minor statistical increases in my abilities and stats.  I like the idea of my plague of toads becoming one giant toad that freakin' eats enemies!

A little off topic, I know, but I've really had it with the Diablo forums these days.  I understand many of the complaints coming from the community about D3, but a lot of it is just frustrating to read.  The addition of a cauldron to destroy vendor trash and keep me immersed in the world is a good thing, imo, as is taking out the skill point allocation that could create a real nightmare if you were pouring points into the wrong attributes.  Seems like the community is complaining about everything with this game because Blizzard's making changes to a ten year old game that has been elevated to an almost God-like status.  Look, I love D2, but there are things that can make the game better, and Blizzard is taking some of the best parts of new games in the genre (companions and the ability to sell things without going back to town from Torchlight) in order to make the experience friendly for the user.  That doesn't mean the game is "noob-friendly" or more mainstream.  It just seems to play better.  This all started with the complaints about the art style three years ago when it was first announced, and now everyone feels the need to flame the game whenever a new feature is mentioned. Feels like these people would have complained about the addition of a run feature in D2 because it took away from the atmosphere of D1, or some nonsense like that. 

Again, I understand the latest batch of complaints about constant internet connections and the auction house.  These are totally legitimate concerns.  I'm mostly talking about the gameplay stuff because that's what I'm interested in.  The fact that I don't have to worry about leveling up skeleton mastery over and over again because now the skills get stronger as you level up and you get a new skill every freakin' level is awesome!

How did you guys like the retro-style podcast?  We're wondering if we should do more of them.  I know there's a particular game that was on Steam sale this past weekend that I'm just dying to talk about...
356  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: August 02, 2011, 10:30:07 AM
Watched the video.  At least the guy pointed out the counter arguments, but I feel that they are more valid than his "Blizzard wants to make money and this will break PVP" theory.

Look, I'm done arguing about this stuff.  It's all hyperbole on both sides.  Blizzard wants money and they want to protect their player-base.  People were already buying equipment through third party suppliers, so Blizzard stepped in to take over.  That's it.  Everyone saying that they won't buy the game and that this broke D3 is kidding themselves just like those who were outraged over the lack of LAN in StarCraft 2. 
357  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: August 01, 2011, 08:40:20 PM
Of course Blizzard wants successful money making products. I just don't see Diablo 3 generating any where near the amount of money that WoW brings to the company. Are they going to be happy with the extra income? Of course. But D3 will not replace the sacred cow.
358  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: August 01, 2011, 06:48:25 PM
Oh, of course they're going to make a profit on this whole thing.  That's part of supporting a service that involves real world money.  But with the amount of bank that Blizzard pulls in from WoW, I doubt they're looking at Diablo 3 to generate significant income. 
359  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: August 01, 2011, 05:20:06 PM
I personally think the auction house is a good thing.  While I don't plan on spending real money for any items in D3, a quick internet search shows that there are tons of sites out there that specialize in this stuff.  For Blizzard to make it a part of the game and protect consumers from shaddy deals is a good thing.  No one is forcing you to use actual green for anything.

As for the constant internet connection, it's a bummer but totally understandable.  We're talking about a game that is borderline MMO at this point.  Everything is based around skill development and equipment, and if Blizzard can't monitor every character at all times then there will be hacked characters.  Again, it's a bummer that they didn't add a single player feature for offline play, but it shows that Blizzard wants people to use B-net and create an actual community for the game.

I understand the fan outrage over this stuff, but if anything it shows Blizzard's intentions and focus with the product.  They want people to safely and fairly interact with each other.  If they don't put these measures in then they could have another "duping" crisis on their hands.
