Blizzard has one of the best game out there diablo what other game can you still find people playing it out there on line whch is 12yrs old then D2 still the same thing people still playing it, now for D3 useing the same play book just touching up on the roughf spots improveing it ten fold over. We the fans say change nothing just make the game play better.

Can go screw..I'll never buy and Xbox and I'll always wait to see if it comes out on PC....It is usually better anyway.

I think D3 looks great, and addresses some of the suggestions I had even after D1.

 "If they made almost the same exact game as Diablo 1", I said "but added some multiplayer, randomness, and the opportunity to smash, knock over, break, or move EVERYTHING on the screen. I'd be more than thrilled".

Of course D2 addressed two of those concepts. D3 seems to do the third to a big extent. Still I think it would be cool to be able to pick up a candelabra and use it to burn a tapestry to damage a monster. I don't think it goes that far.

 Only other hope would be to have random quests as well as random dungeons as well as fixed quests... or what about different quests opened up in nightmare and hell levels?!! I miss the random quests from D1. Not doing them in D3 at all would be slightly conservative.

 

There's no time like the future.

For D3 has been a long one.  I want what the game has been famous for.  I want it the same but with improvements.  Bigger world, more quests, High Rez graphics, and a good story.  People aren't playing the Fallout games like they do Diablo.  After 8 yrs Diablo II is still on store shealves and selling.  Fallout can't say that.  Fallout 3 (I didn't really like the Fallout series, I don't like after the apoc. storylines) might get me to play the series again because they changed...they needed to change I feel.

But DON'T change my Diablo.  I don't even think it could be a good MMO....at least not until WoW was just about over and World of Starcraft (you know that they are probably comming at some point)was riding high.  By then I could get back into a Fantasy setting.

And I will probably never play Spore.  I say "NO!" to Will Wright and his pee pee creatures!!!  Just like I said "Real Men Don't Play the SIMS!!" to the Sims :)

I just want more classic Diablo action. I don't need them to change the genre or think "outside of the box." The world already has one Hellgate London.

I am glad the Spore CC is toping the charts. It is posted on the torrent sites but I guess if stuff is cheap enough people would rather buy it. I hope all the online content offered by Spore when it comes out is enough to get people to spring for it. I think it is safe to say $50 for a game is too much for some losers to pay. What is the price that makes the pirates go legit?

True enough.  Hellgate London  could not have been any more of a commercial disaster.  Ironic, since Flagship's Mythos is actually a very fun game -- they got the Diablo clone just right and failed on the "innovative new experience."

As for the price point, well.  I don't think it's a question of price.  I buy games that are good, period.  A pirate will be tempted to buy a good game, but frankly, the ease at which one can acquire said game for free sets that transaction bar rather high.  The surest way for developers to combat this is thus: tie a CD-key to an online account or service.  I have yet to see Steam hacked, and there's a good reason for that.

Sure, Spore Creature Creater sold well, But did you guys stop to take a look at what else was on that list?

  • 1. Spore Creature Creator - Electronic Arts
  • 2. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe - Electronic Arts
  • 3. Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures - Funcom/Eidos
  • 4. World Of Warcraft: Burning Crusade - Blizzard
  • 5. World Of Warcraft - Blizzard
  • 6. World Of Warcraft: Battle Chest - Blizzard
  • 7. The Sims 2 FreeTime - Electronic Arts
  • 8. The Sims 2 Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff - Electronic Arts
  • 9. Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Activision
  • 10. Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures - LucasArts

    I find it difficult to see The Sims 2 Double Delux, The Sims 2 FreeTime. and The Sims 2 Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff making any of the top 10. Sound's to me like EA paid that company a sum of money to get there Sim's games up on that list quite high.

While it's tempting to think that NPD is crooked, I'd say that the way that EA got multiple copies of their Sims-related games on the list is that they sell a lot of copies in places like Wal-Mart.

Yeah, look at Blizzard's showing. Are they rigging the charts too?

TheMurph

re: Blizzard, I'm quite confident that a lot of people will go out and buy the most-played PC game at this point in time.

NPD numbers don't reflect everything.  They aren't counting Downloads yet.

 Although i never watch those show, I do know both have won multiple awards and are quite decorated. How is comparing a game to those two productions an insult?

Did he think harry potter contained falacious arguments and weak character development as well?

What I meant was that Godfather and Sopranos are superior to GTA IV in terms of plot. It's not an insult; it simply saying that GTA IV isn't Holywood caliber. Also, I altered the article to make that point a little more obvious.
