My biggest problem with Diablo 3 is this:



This is a graph I made including the general power level of stats / items / enchantments.
The X axis is level 10 - 60 (started at 10 for various reasons and added 60.5 and 60.75 for act 3 and 4 of Inferno).
The Y axis is the stat compilation (I have not added monster data though, but I assume they rise in stats even more)
As you can see the growth is incredibly exponential.

This means that progressing through the late game is incredibly hard and that it's very hard to balance.
It also screams to me that they want people to use the AH / RMHA because everything that should be powerful at your level can only be found where you should be at 2 levels in the future (making a comparison of where/when each tier drop / equip level)

Also, this means that any expansions will probably be even harder to balance than what we have now.

About that Yakuza 4...
I'm about 10 hours in and this game deserves all the praise it received. I'm amazed how good/free (as in it lets me dick around without any consequence)/contentful it is.
I love the Act 1 guy and I hope that the next 3 characters are as awesome as he is.
I'm actually putting Diablo3 aside to play this.
I think they just found a buyer for Yakuza 5 with me if it's anywhere near as good as 4.

It's great, Have you played Yakuza 3? I played through that after Yak 4 and imho it's just as good. In fact I liked them so much I bought the Japanese releases.

I'm not sure I really want to though. The little movies did a really good job showing me the whole story already =/

Anyone else thinking that buying their MMO might be a great opportunity for a financially stable company?

Here's my usual question for Atelier games:

How does time work? and how lenient is it?
2751  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: EA in a Nutshell on: May 28, 2012, 08:04:43 PM
Personally, Origin is the reason I'll probably never get another EA game.
Too bad that means never finishing the ME trilogy.

I hope they release a Mysterious Girlfriend X OST just because of this song:

I saw and bought Yakuza 4 for 24$.
Let's see why this game received so much praise (when the 5gb install finishes -_-)

The difference this time is that they are going for a more fantasy style art design, instead of a futuristic one."

What?! Why would you do that?
It's emo black haired Dante all over again =/

Russia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=WKNRGc71hjc

Yeah, Russia is a fucking weird one. 6 old Russian ladies singing badly and dancing while baking bread. ITS MAGICAL.

That was amazing.
It's even better when they show that one judge who's probably waiting to shoot himself when this is over.

You pretty much get requests to bring every single item in the game.
The fun factor of inn request is really low.

Survived yet another round of layoffs today.
After 5 years, I've seen so many of them...

Blizzard's really seven shades of stupid for not having a demo/trial version ready at launch. I don't want to outright buy this because I don't know if my computer will be able to handle it (not so much hardware concerns as I issues with heat generation on certain programs that cause forced shutdowns). Currently if they had one I'd be willing to try it as WoW is pretty much boring due to lack of people and I'm tired of being useless since the people who are around have gear that takes months to obtain (longer since no one's helping newer characters catch up). But by the time Blizzard does make a demo version D3 will already have the same problem. Everyone will be hyper geared and well past any point I'd be starting out at so there's really no point in playing since it'll just be an Sisyphusian exercise in futility.

Find yourself a friend who bought a boxed version of D3.

EDIT: What John said -_-

Also, friend gave me Eternal Sonata for PS3.  I love the musical-theme and motifs, and the visuals are eye porn.  Crack pot story, but hey, it's a JRPG.

Oh geez.

WHY YOU SPOILING THINGS?!?!??!
... Bah.  Ah well, if she joins the party, I'll know to avoid her. =(

That's close to where I gave up on the game.

Do they want to play a game where they must get written proof that the owner of the chest has given them the right to open it? Like a receipt?

Only if triple signed on a deed too.
