    All I am gonna say: I did not know bowel movements could sizzle.

    Could D3 have been better? Sure. Was D3 some gross exploit of the diablo franchise? NO.

     

    D3 was a modernized version of a 10 year old game. It was almost exactly what I had expected. It also had only a fraction of the impact the first two had. Which should have been expected or at the least recognized. It is no different in other genre's. Look at wolfenstien, doom, quake, command and conquer, starcraft, everquest, ultima, wow, compared to other modern games.  

     

    D3 is a better game than what came before. It is practically a wishlist of all the things people wanted when diablo was in its prime. It is also low impact, and mediocre to true vetern gamers, which should have been obvious because at this date a truly high impact revolutionary game willl be 1/1000.

    if i ever buy this game it will be on PS3 (or PS4) unless they add gamepad support on PC. I do not play point and click games. Period. Havent logged back in Path of Exile for that sole reason (same with Torchlight 2 which i left behind less than half way)

    It's gunna be a pain anyway. Sorting through all that loot without a mouse just isn't going to work; it'll be time consuming.

    D-pad works fine to go through inventory on consoles. Of course they would have to change the console inventory for a more console friendly one (like most rpgs that go cross platform)

    Let me rephrase it.

    "Sony wouldn't allow the AH on their platform"

    I say it as though avoiding point and click somehow elevates you above the people who enjoy them and their controls.

    I wonder how well this is really going to sell on that console. 

     

    There's just so many other games I'd rather be playing.  I still have Assassins Creed 3 sitting over there and I haven't touched it.  I'd rather play Boarderlands 2 than this stuff.  Haven't picked that up. 

     

    I think a lot of gamers who own a PS3 are a little more used to more dynamic games than D3.  Top down view, running around dungeons killing monsters in just a constant hack and slash is something that really doesn't begin to compare with a host of better games with open worlds, 3D environments and engaging stories on the system. 

    If there are so many other games you'd rather be playing then why is AC3 "sitting over there" untouched? Also, if you'd rather play Borderlands 2, then why haven't you picked it up? Sounds like you just had a knee jerk reaction here and posted without thinking it through.

    Without an AH, they are going to have to thoroughly redo the itemization aspect of the game. I uninstalled it back in January and wouldn't consider reinstalling it. POE is already better and Grim Dawn looks gorgeous already.

    "No Auction houses of any kind confirmed by lead designer Joshua Mosqueira at PAXEast"

     

    still waiting for a link of some kind that solidly confirms this.  a blurb about local co-op tells me nothing about whether the DRM is active or not.

    [mod edit]  Of the links you provided, only the second one has direct quotes to confirm.  Given it was written yesterday and is the only one of it's kind, it's not asking too much to be provided with it FROM A FRIGGIN NEWS WEBSITE LIKE THIS ONE.   FFS pull your head out. 

     

    He cites concern for duping with an AH, does that imply no online game trading of items at all?  Or just more BS from bliz I wonder.

    Good move on Blizzards part for porting this over.  Fram rate is still low, but still playable.

    You make me like charity

    Here's a link that at least confirms the offline play and the no RMAH: http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/console-diablo-3-playable-offline-real-money-auction-house-removed-not-exac

    Though the guy does say: “There were some technical reasons we had to go with offline, but again once you have an offline experience, even if we wanted to bring in the auction house, it just becomes problematic. How do you validate? How do you make sure there is no duping or any of that stuff?”

    So it seems to mean no gold AH, as well. But we'll see how it progresses. I find it funny that he basically says they were forced to go offline due to technical limitations. Don't think that Blizzard has learned anything -- in reality, if there weren't technical limitations, the PS3/4 version of D3 would have had DRM and AH just like the PC.

    Blizzard as a company has nurtured a culture of dishonesty and deception that I will no longer subsidise.

     Untrue. The game was balanced so you could play never using any auction house. Many people have done it. It's time people put this tired old lie aside.

    Blizzard readily admit that the loot game - drop rates, item rarity scaling, etc - was balanced with the AH in mind. The wider availability of high level items on the AH had to be taken into account when working out base drop rates. Blizzard have admitted doing as such, and have recently said they're going to work to move back to rates more akin to D2.

    The point isn't that you can't play the game without going to the AH. The point is that the game is obstructive at higher levels unless you play the AH because item progression through drops does not scale convincingly with difficulty level/time investment due to the presence of the AH.

Drop rates in D3 were not deliberately low to accomodate the auction houses. It is untrue. Being aware of the auction house is not the same as designing the game to necessitate it's use.  The drop rates in D2 were warped by there being basically one mob to farm. The drop rates themselves were no higher.

    And yet, most of the posts I saw on Diablo forums complained that nothing decent ever dropped. And Blizzard admitted that if there was a certain number of items in the AHs, they wouldn't drop as much.

    If you were lucky (and amongst the first who played) you got the items, if not, then you were a bit screwed on that.

    I can say from personal experience, drop rates were awful. I tried every class and played quite some time, wanted to give it a go, but nothing dropped. Not even with MF oriented gear. I got about 10 legendaries and 0 sets. Total playing time well over 100 hours.

    Now comparing that to D2, there is no contest. And what you say about farming, I'm not on about that at all, in D2 you could get legendary items to drop from the beginning, no farming involved at all.

    D3 no chance.

    Why do you reckon they are changing this system now in D3?

     Drop rates were aweful in D2. They're aweful in every ARPG. The whole point is for it to be difficult to get the best gear. Otherwise you would be done with the game in a week. The crybabies will have their way and then we'll get to hear how Blizzard dumbed down the game and it isn't fun any more.  They're the reason there is an auction house in D3. They couldn't do the work for themselves in D2 so the turned to the gold and item farmers to get what the wanted. I got two set pieces in five years in D2. Both were completely useless. Until the stupid runestones D2 was difficult. After D2 was a cakewalk. Blizzard never admitted items on the Auction house affected game drops. They don't. it's an urban legend they denied time and again. People just keep making this stuff up.

    Well, I got tons of stuff in D2. Without any farming.

    I won't change my mind in this matter, because I know what I read at one point or another. Doesn't even matter, I'm done with the game, just annoys me that they are making it a lot better for the consoles, that's all.

    Shake hands and agree to disagree? :D

    Because I've been busy playing GW2 on my PC since Oct which was my birthday and then I got AC3 and a couple of other games for Christmas.  I'm getting a little tired of GW2 though so I've been thinking of playing AC3. 

     

    Basically, a short answer to your question is because I'm currently playing something else and haven't gotten around to AC3 yet.  However Diablo 3 for PS3?  There are dozens of games I still don't have for the system I would pick up long before I'd even consider D3 if ever.  So no, it was hardly a knee jerk reaciton.
