It Turned Into a F$%*! BLIZZARD Fest.


Nick McLaren  -  12:30 PM  -  Limited
Borderlands 2, but not until 2013! This is the epitome of "set up and let down". Was hoping for 2012. We have a work group that gets together on a mostly-sporadic-but-occasionally-regular basis to play Borderlands and it's really a lot of fun with friends. We'll have to find other games to play while we wait though! http://www.borderlands2.com/

Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed first-person role-playing shooter Borderlands, and will be released 2012.

Larry Donnell - here is to hoping it is even relevant at that point.

Nick McLaren - I guess it MIGHT actually be released in 2012. Some contradictory text there.

Bruce Hennigar II - Yea it's fiscal 2013, which begins in April 2012. So ... maybe? If it was Blizzard I'd say definitely not :P

Larry Donnell - AND.....they lost a shit ton of cred with me when I tried Duke Nukem Forever...that was one of the worst games ever imnsho.

Larry Donnell - +Bruce Hennigar II BOOO BLiZZARD.....never buying another game from that venal pack of shitmongers ever again.....no offline play for DiabloIII...They deserve evisceration.

Nick McLaren - +Larry Donnell - I rather LIKED Starcraft II actually and am looking forward to Diablo III. No offline play isn't exactly much of a barrier in this day and age. So you can't hex edit your character file anymore. I'll reserve actual judgement for after I've gotten my hands on the game. As far as evisceration goes, that might be a tad excessive. :P

Larry Donnell - I guess I cannot understand the acceptance of something you purchase from someone having a dictate of how and when you can play it in a manner that actually cripples it. People SAY this is not a barrier but I have to wholeheartedly, unreservedly disagree with you. This is the issue that Sony faced with its environment. I couldn't even play PAC-MAN because their net was down. It was the same when my connection went out. I found it inexcusable then and now. I find it fascinating that people are willing to surrender basic common sense functionality to suckle at the teat of a company like Blizzard.

Nick McLaren - I fail to understand your logic.

Nick McLaren - I don't see them restricting the game in such a way.

Bruce Hennigar II - I think he means the no offline play. If it works like any of Ubisoft's recent games, if you're not connected to the internet, you can't play the game. So if you take your lappy somewhere and there's no internet, no Diablo 3 for you. It's a limiting factor.

Larry Donnell - How are they not? They will only allow you to play online with a series that has been BOTH from founding. Perhaps you have bought into the whole MMORPG thing ....but there is a large number of people who have not....i will bet you a thousand smackers that +Jeremy Scharping will also not be buying it NOW. I have played a lot of Diablo 1 and 2....NOT CONNECTED to their servers. Any game that restricts play like that is a sure fire way NOT to get my money. I don't care ...even if it was....say....Gears of War 3. if they did that I would not buy it...even though I am counting down the 10ths of seconds until it releases. I also feel this way about the insane DRM that UbiSoft has on its shit....I will not buy a single one of their titles...If I BUY something ...don't tell me how or when I can use it.

Jeremy Scharping - He's right. I won't.

Larry Donnell - +Bruce Hennigar II you are 100% right. I will not pay 50+ for something that is solely dependent on that....simply because some putz in a suit at Blizzard thinks it is a better way to "control" the game play environment. Fuck him.
