Not to side with Shadowcunter, but after playing BF3 on the PC......the term "consoletard" is so accurate hahaha.

I have it on PS3 too and they have NO fucking idea how to PTFO, aim is obviously shit, and there appears to be no thought process involved in playing. Literally lemmings into the gunfire. Leaves me speechless quite often.

Not a big task to rape on the console, as long as your stick aim is decent.

Yes, but it's easier to mow down the clueless lemmings and get a good KDR. It's even easier to PTFO, because you can mow down the lemmings and plant the charge/cap the point. Pitiful resistance in most cases.

Like backraging on Grand Bazaar B-death alley, possible almost every single time. Not even difficult to aim, just head over there with an MG36 via the Highway, mow them down get the cap, have a cup of tea, then head over to A and cap that too. Then spawn camp them to victory.

On PC you just can't do that shit, not just because more people can outshoot you, but because they also know how to play on point and move tactically. There is actual teamwork between strangers, even without VOIP comms.

I played the beta and was disappointed. I was really let down by the poor optimization. When I can run the Witcher 2 and even BF3 maxed with a respectable frame rate but D3 chugs at my native res...that makes my penis soft. Maybe it was just the class (witch doctor) but I wasn't impressed by the game play either.

Diablo fan fa lyfe.

I played the beta and the only thing that disappointed me was it was only a part of Act I.

Loved the new skill system. Also, it ran perfectly fine for me at 1920 reso.

Agreed, was pretty shit in length for a Beta, but the customization is sick. I'm running at 1600, looks great.

Motha fucka, I invited you to run lfd2 with my crew and you were blasting my boys with a shotty/friendly fire close corridor. Come on now.

Anyway, it felt like a time waster to me. It wasn't a challenge and the game felt forced. I just didn't have fun with the demo. Hey, maybe the classes are like..say..arcane mage where you dont have fun until level 60. I dont know. The one class I played left my penis flaccid enough to not want to play again.

Nice try, but I've only ever pirated LFD2 and couldn't play online.


anyway, just get DIII.

because Kotick. (seriously, because kotick or someone at activision was likely fed up with "when it's done", set them a deadline and said "cut content if necessary, we can always make more $$$ by selling it as DLC")

but seriously, the performance issues encountered by such a huge number of players for a game that has been in development for so long and looks so dated (and shitty and cartoony compared to it's predecessors) is mind-boggling.

D3 is shit. deal with it

Right on. I thought as much. Never been a big fan of Diablo, so it's no skin off my nose.

Yeah. Skill system is so much more improved in my opinion. You get USEFUL skills way early on. Skills that you can see yourself using till the end, instead of waiting till lv 45 to unlock something thats worth a shit. My Barbarian's fury builder was cleave. So it's basically my main attack, hits multiple enemies, builds fury AND it's free.

D3 Environments looks amazing. Don't know what you're on about, maybe you just don't know good environment art when you see it. I mean it's a dungeon-slashing action RPG from top view. What did you expect, here? They did an excellent job (as always).

The art is a stylized approach. I guess one can see it as 'cartoony', but it's no bugs bunny in my eyes. Are you one of those who also complained this game wasn't "darK" enough when it was initially showcased?

you have some really low standards for "amazing". and yes, it looks cartoony. and, iirc, i haven't complained that it didn't look "dark enough" but "it didn't look at all like a Diablo game with its almost trademark gothic atmosphere but like a kid's version of Diablo diluted for the WoW crowd". i didn't expect anything since Blizz is known to use dated tech so that their games can work and look good enough on as many PCs as possible... which makes it even more lulzy that so many people have performance issues with the beta

fanboys. fanboys never change. enjoy your cartoony clickfest

I know what good art style in a game looks like and I know good environments when I see them. Maybe it's because I'm taking classes on 3d game art and know how hard and how much talent it takes to make something look good. I take a close eye to a game's environment when I play the game.

Like I said, for WHAT kind of game IT IS It looks amazing. This isn't suppose to be Uncharted 3. You want a bad looking game, take Skyrim. Everyone's on it's nuts and it looks awful.

oh, and I will enjoy it. I already enjoyed half of Act I. Enjoy embracing your 'angry video game forum nerd' persona

The implication is that D3 is the superior game, and therefore the only one worth talking about.

To infer that one game is superior to another surely requires a comparison between them in the first place?
