Hi all!!

This is a bit of a thread necro, but it was fantastic to read all your updates! 

Like many here, I'll be confronting 50 in a year or two.  The wife and I celebrated 25 years together at a college reunion party over the summer.  The boys are 14 and 18, sending the older one off to university in the fall. 

I never stopped gaming!   :)  I had a baby in the off-hand slot for both D2 and then GW1 (I miss it too, Lego!).  Prolly have a grandbaby help me play D5 someday..  I'm currently big into Path of Exile, but still fire up D2 from time-to-time.  Last year I took a couple HC characters through - much easier now that they've tamed some of the evil mobs, but still stressful!! 

It's great to see you all still pop in, I'm sorry I stayed away so long (where does the time go??)

Good to hear from you.  POE is fun but I have moved onto Borderlands for my loot fixations.

Nice to hear from you!  I still play D2 also.  Unbelievable, but for some reason that game still keeps me interested.

Hello all!

Nice to see familiar names still around. 

I haven't turned on a computer in anger for many years now but had the urge to play something a week ago.  Fired up PoE as I read D3 is bad and have been really enjoying playing SSF Hardcore.  nearly lvl 60 and pretty happy I haven't killed the character yet.

Personally am nearly 43, 2 girls are growing up (12 and 9), and the wife and I are generally busy being productive members of society!

Nah maaaan. I really enjoy D3, but it is a very different game to D2/POE etc.

D3 is definitely better than PoE by epic miles, but it's no D2. :(

Hey Grogs!  I remember Pipers 1st birthday party. Its been too long, don't stay a stranger!

And a Lemming post too!  Where have you been?

Also, what is wrong with PoE apart from Gender issues?  For someone like Grogs who puts between 500-5000 hours into a game at a time, I'm sure PoE would be for him as he probably did everything he would already do in D3.

Sorry to revive an old post but I am not on much and missed this one. Good to see a lot of familiar people from the old D2 games. I guess I am stubborn there. I don't play much any more but still mostly stick to the old 1.09 version where we had our countless cow runs. :)

Yep same place. Kids getting bigger. Life goes on. Will you be back for Diablo 4 in 4 years time?

D4... not sure, probably.  I've been playing PoE pretty flat out.  Started late in the Legion league, but played most of blight, got to 98, ran out of interest in the League before getting to 100 though.  Will play 3.9 as there are some big changes.



Hola Lemming!  Really long time no see!

Hey Pixie!  Don't get me wrong I played my fair share of D3 and enjoyed it.  PoE is substantially better now than it was when I last played in the early 2010's!

It's impressive that they add some new mechanic every 3 months with a new league, and the expansion coming up on the 13/12 looks quite good.
