Re: Obligatory Diablo III Thread

Hate Blizzard, even though I play so many of their games (SC2, WoW and more in the past). Diablo 3 is just grinding, I assumed it would be this way as that is what the old ones were, but blizzard said that they had mixed it up and made very technical and challenging boss fights...utter lies. I also ...

Re: What video game music have you been listening to lately?

The original sonic games and the sountrack to iwbtg. I have been addicted to the sonic games ever since my childhood, and the tunes take me back, got all of them from 1,2,3 and s&K on my mp3. Here's a trance remix of Final Zone if anyone is into that kind of thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: Playing without using pause (Normal Mode)

I would say that using the pause function pust you on a level playing field as the computer.

The only time I ever use pause really is if i've managed to get that item that means my weapons are instantly reloaded. Otherwise the game is easily slow paced enough to play it optimally without that.

Re: Can you beat this game???

with the right build the boss is a walkover. I've done stages of the boss without taking damage, it's all about getting lucky enough to collect a certain build of items before you get to him. I recommend always having cloaking, it's ridiculous. Last time I finished the game I had 2 burst laser I, 1 ...

Re: Initial reactions: balance issues

The best NetHack streak by a single player is 23. That's 23 wins in a row. My personal record is 3. I see no reason why a player couldn't achieve the same thing in FTL. This game is almost entirely non-dependent on luck. Do you really think you've explored all the strategies FTL has to offer? It's ...

Re: Not hard, just random.

The game is too random, not just difficult, but random to a point where even perfect play could potentially result in a game you didn't even do well in, never mind completing. Nethack is a relatively popular rogue-like which has a crazy number of variables and seems impossible to be good at, but the...

Re: Initial reactions: balance issues

This game has too wide a window of luck as far as I can see, to the point where quite often no amount of ability/knowledge of the game will give you a certain (or even likely) completion on any specific playthrough. I have played nethack on and off since 1999, so don't need people lecturing me about...
