16  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: June 09, 2015, 08:29:50 PM
I don't remember what it was that got me to start up again, but I started playing Diablo 3 again on PC, then saw that it was on sale for PS4.  Got a wizard up to level 70 hardcore on PC, then started trying on PS4.  My hardcore wizard there is up about level 59, and just now, I ran him through his first Nephalem rift.  And it was the Last of Us rift.  That was very tense, playing hardcore and having bloaters throwing poison balls at me.  Not to mention the elite versions.

I made it to the end of that level without quite getting enough people to trigger the rift guardian, and when I moved into the next area, I ran into at least two rare monsters (with their packs of minions, of course).  Someone was a waller, someone had whatever it is that makes those poison trails... it was also scary.  But I survived. :)

I hope he'll do well, but I'm also nervous about whether he's the right choice for this role.

I just watched a movie from the '80s called Johnny Dangerously, with Michael Keaton as a goofy gangster dude, enjoyed it.  It's free on Amazon Prime...

I'm abit halfway through the current episode, but had to say the following:

- I also think Fozzie when someone says wokka wokka. And I'm old enough to have been a kid when both The Muppet Show and Pac Man were new. :)

- In the topic of John DiMaggio, I saw this video today, thought it was humorous. It's him talking about bacon pancakes.

If you like him, I highly recommend hearing his appearances as  Captain Laserbeam on the Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast.  Here is a list of them all. The most recent one guest starred Keegan Michael Key instead, and that's more funny if you've heard the John DiMaggio episodes.

Now that's a cookie monster!  Best of luck with the sales!

My memory is that it does pick back up before Sanderson, but regardless, you have a bit of a slog ahead of you.  Good luck!

I'd say go for it.  4 is my favorite entry in the series, I think, but if you enjoyed 1 and 2, you'll still enjoy 3 after playing 4.  If you haven't played ZHP and it's downloadable on Vita, that one will probably appeal to you as well.

The issue is character rights.  If you can't have Magneto in your movies, you can't have his kids be his kids.  They have to be someone else. :(

I actually had one experience where an audience that was over the top actually improved the movie: watching Transformers 2 near Times Square.  Movie was semi-entertaining.  Audience was extremely entertaining. :)

But I've been to other movies where somebody like that was really annoying - I guess the best audience to see a movie with can vary by movie, too.

I really enjoyed it, myself.  Thought the action was satisfying, and there were lots of laughs in the theater.

ebooks are nice for giant tomes.  I actually bought The Stand in ebook form because I didn't want to haul around my giant hardback to read it.

Go to the library...

Why don't people go to the library? 

He just died, so they know people are going to want to read his material, so they probably stocked up in anticipation.

I like the library a lot.  But when you're just missing the final book in the series, why not actually buy it and have the whole thing?  Also, I think of myself as someone who'll go back and re-read his favorite books, and that has an impact on the situation.

Super hero fatigue is a real thing.

Yeah, I have to imagine we're going to start seeing diminishing box office numbers for comic book movies, followed by cancellations on some of the riskier projects (Justice League Dark, for example).

That said, everyone please remember to use the spoiler button thingy if you talk about Age of Ultron in the next few weeks here, even if the thing you're talking about is something you think is pretty well known.  (Like whatever happens after the credits because duh of course something will.)

Dune, eh? Good luck with it.  I thought the first one was OK, but hated the second, so I stopped there.

I've been reading through the Watch books from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.  It's the only group I had all of... except that it turns out that I don't.  I'm missing the latest one.  Guess I'll have to pick that up once I get to it.

That was good stuff - thanks for the link. :)

Yeah, TWD gets coverage because we do point & click games as well as RPGs. :)
