I use different mice for different games. Old MX518 for Quake and older games and mix Roccat Kone and Logitech Gx9 for newer games, mostly FPS. Also pondering a R.A.T 9 for the customization options alone.

after hitting the max level, i was starting inferno difficulty, did maybe 2-3 boss runs in act 1 and some legendary set helm dropped, so it took me about 3-4 hours after hitting max level to get it. i think i just got lucky though, because drop rates in this game are pretty low for the best items.


had a friend who sold an item for $250 the other day.

Shit is crazy.

I wish there was a reliable and efficient way to milk cash out of playing video games, I would even consider getting in on that shit if it made sense.

Sheet! I think that's too customizable for a newbie like me haha. So the older Logitech you use for Team fortress?
Cryofthecarrots recommended me that some time ago.

Nice.

I just got into act1 inferno myself. I still need to buy some cheap upgrades (gold AH obviously, would never pay real money for this shit lol) just to be able to get through it (act1) but things continue to get more expensive.

I play a barb atm. Add me if you want, I've found this game to be more fun (and easier) playing with others.

I've made a couple thousand traveling to lans and competing. It's nothing to write home about but I am going to be playing anyway so if the chance comes to make money why the hell not.

Diablo, I am almost to act 3 inferno on my monk. I feel melee get the shaft raw dog but I am sticking with my main and trying to persevere. Even though the jacked up repair costs are destroying my bank. Tormentor5738

I just started a hardcore character, im in act 2 nightmare.

that R.A.T. mouse is god-awful. i bought one and returned it.

-even with all the weights removed, it is too heavy
-it has sharp edges on the bottom and catches on everything when you pick it up
-the software is awful compared to the logitech (which isn't that great to begin with)
-it's huge
-the right mouse click is way too sensitive making you constantly right click everything just with the weight of your finger
-all those little things that you can attach actually do nothing. the difference between the smallest and biggest palm rests is probably not even an inch... and there are 3...
-that horizontal roll wheel on the top is totally useless and insanely hard to move

So I have a week free from my job, and thus bought Final Fantasy XIII for xbawx to play through during that time. I should rather have bought Demon Souls or something, cause it's rather shitty. Essentially it's a grandeur soap-opera where the episodes have to be unlocked by running through pipe-levels and pressing "x" (the games' excuse for fighting).
Seriously, the fights are so cheap, some mobs take a felt eternity to slay, not because they are hard, but because they have about a million HP or so. I even lost a boss fight because I fell asleep during it...

FF13 was a huge troll. It got decent after 60hrs, but by then I didn't give a fuck anymore. Fuck that game.

Yeah it's BS. It basically forces you to complete the game/story before it gets good. I was pissed to begin with, but once the game opens up I was like "Wow, REALLY?! NOW?!... yeah, NO. Fuck you Square-Enix". You might be able to get there sooner but it's still not really worth it imho.

If you're in the mood for that type of game you could try either Lost Odyssey or Tales of Vesperia. LO being a more mature, slower-paced traditional JRPG and ToV being a more youthful, light-hearted humorous old-school style JRPG complete with 3D overworld map and towns/continents, but with a real-time battle system(takes some getting used to). IMHO, ToV is the best JRPG released in this generation of consoles. LO being a close 2nd. There is a new Tales game just released called "Tales of Graces f" but I have yet to give it a shot. *Edit - i dont want to give the impression here that ToV or LO are amazing games but they are decent if you want modern jrpgs that dont suck

Overall, this generation is complete ass for JRPG's. Ni No Kuni (Studio Ghibli/Level 5 title) looks to change that, though.

I heard good things about Xenoblade(Wii) too. Been meaning to play that via the Dolphin Emulator on PC. Handhelds have some good JPRGs as well if thats your(anyones) thing

Played Xenoblade with Dolphin. Don't understand the hype for that game. Combat is boring, basically on autopilot, characters are gay. World is pretty cool, I guess. Tons of quests to do. Weird MMO / Single player type hybrid thing they did.
