I played StarCraft for a while, mostly MP with my son.  But he's young and plays a game for like a few months and then moves on to some other game.  So now I don't played StarCraft any more.

Wow, remember when Britney Spears was hot?  Actually, she's still pretty hot.  She went kinda psycho for a while there, and I rarely find psychosis attractive, but she's back, and I really can't complain.

Awesome!  A cookie to go with my Doritos.  That's a balanced lunch.  :)


Seriously though, and I know I've mentioned this before, but despite all seeming evidence to the contrary, I'm not really a gamer.  I play one game on the PC: Diablo.  I play it a lot, but I don't play any other games, so I don't know how it works with other games.  I do know that I paid like $20 for original Diablo years ago, and played it for years.  Hundreds of hours of play, for 20 bucks.  I consider that a pretty good value.

D2 and D2X were similar.  For a total of 40 bucks, several hundred more hours of play.  D3, you guessed it.  Yeah, it gets repetitive.  When I get bored, I try a different class, one I haven't played in a while.  For 40 bucks (plus I think 15 for the Necromancer pack), I've already gotten a few hundred hours of entertainment.

How does it work with other games?  Do people expect the publishers to keep patching/enhancing/supporting the game for free forever?  I know that with some games, you pay a monthly fee or something for the service.  I categorically avoid that model.  But if we were talking about a game that has a steady influx of money, then yeah, I'd expect support and new content on a regular basis.  But that's not the Diablo model, never has been.  For a fixed price, I already feel like I've gotten my money's worth, and everything beyond that is just cake.

People complaining about how long Blizzard takes to release the games, okay, I see your point.  If my life revolved around playing video games, I'd be bummed about having to wait so long, too.  Fortunately, I have a life, so I guess I'll just keep playing D3 for now, or maybe stop when I honestly get bored.  I did eventually stop playing D2/D2X when I felt I'd done everything I wanted to do within the game, but I'm not gonna complain about that.  I might stop playing D3 before D4 comes out, possibly long before, but I'll check out D4 when it arrives.  Or whatever the new thing is.

I cornered a pair of blue guys at the end of a tunnel, killed both, then all four, then all eight, then all 16.  The amount of loot was insane!

It happened again.  What a mess.

You all is silly.

When original Diablo came out, it was the best damned Diablo game ever created.  No one had ever created a Diablo game better than original Diablo.

When Diablo II came out, it was the best damned version of Diablo II ever created.  It got better with every patch (except for the ones which were universally regarded as "eh, not so much") and with the expansion, D2X, it became the best damned Diablo game ever created.

Diablo III is the best damned version of Diablo III out there, bar none.  Show me any game called Diablo III (or maybe Diablo 3) that's better than Diablo III, and I'll eat my lunch.

I'm sure that when Diablo IV (or maybe Diablo 4) comes out, it will be the best damned version of Diablo IV ever created.  If I'm wrong, I'll eat a bag of Doritos.

She said "multiple projects" and come on, she's female and kinda cute for a programmer, so you know she means every word of it.  I'd collect breast plates with her, if you know what I mean.  Obviously they have multiple projects going on, and if that doesn't get you excited, then okay, it doesn't.

Bring on them Primals!

Bob the Demon Hunter was doing alright with his M6 gear, but it was getting pretty rough past GR 60.  By 65 it was a genuine struggle, and it just plain wasn't any fun anymore at 67.

Then I noticed that he'd managed to collect a full UE set, complete with Ancient Yang's and DML.  I like M6 for filling the screen with projectiles and death, but UE is more funner more faster, so I switched.

Or tried to.  Turns out I had two sets of boots and no helm.  :(  Oops.  I'd also just spent most of my Blood Shards gambling for a better Amulet, and only had 56 Shards left, but I figured what the hell, might as well give it a shot.  Worst that could happen is I keep hammering at M6 until I can gamble or find a UE helm.

First one was yellow, second was the UE helm!  Okay, I'm in business.  Saved the build (I don't actually use the Armory that much, but this seemed like the type of thing it was made for) and switched out the gear.  Tweaked a few things at Myriam's, and less than an hour later I'd run a GR 70.  Never done that in a Season before.

Bring on them Primals!

The double goblin thing has been great sometimes, and sometimes really frustrating.  When I have a character that's working it's way up, killing a goblin can often be quite a challenge in the first place, and it doesn't help that they often seem to show up around the same time as an elite pack.  Double goblins in those cases usually just leave me pissed off because two of them get away, not just one.

On the other hand, once I've gotten someone to T13 and am running rifts at T12 just to collect GR tokens, I love it.  I cornered a pair of blue guys at the end of a tunnel, killed both, then all four, then all eight, then all 16.  The amount of loot was insane!

I'm still trying builds I've never seriously tried before, so I'm still finding new things to do and try.  But I understand if a lot of guys have pretty much done everything with the game that they're going to do.  It's still a finite amount of content; everyone's eventually going to get to their point.  The only solution to that is for Blizzard to literally keep putting out new content for free (which is not really a good business model) or move on to like Diablo IV or something else.

That's pretty nuts.  The girl almost looks like she could be cute if not making an angry face, though.

Got it.  I figured it was a joke, but wondered how Sam figured into it.

Well, I like cookies, but I'm still massively confused, and I'm stone cold sober.  Maybe that's the problem.  But if someone from here is into 14-year-old girls, then I guess I'm okay with him getting shot by her mother.
