  1. Been ages yeah, but like K'dash said, my days of forum lurking on 1emu are long gone heh. I do miss the place. (Mostly Magnis, Weirdy, Ghosty and Al )
  2. He has a kid to look after now, doesn't he? I miss him too. Also hi.
  3. I wholeheartedly support the legalisation and taxation of both prostitution and recreational drug manufacture and distribution for mass consumption, following strict medical guidelines and prescriptionless oversight. I wouldn't consider it a sin just as much I don't consider anything we humans do as sinful simple based on the fact that we as a species are incapable of taking responsibility for our actions and require scapegoats like religion and something to tell us that it's not our faults we're dumbfucks. I wouldn't consider the above morally questionable either as long as it doesn't interfere negatively with the lives of other people physically, their convictions notwithstanding.
  4. You know, I used to do that, but then I stopped caring and got jaded. Now I just bang whatever good looking chic I find. I'd rather stick my dick in a blender then listen to most 'em talk anyway. Same ol' bullshit anyway. I guess I kinda went the other way but I'm simply having too much fun otherwise. Once you find your groove, they're like everywhere. What I did start valuing more was my own enjoyment over anyone else's and my closer friends. And I love it. I subscribe to hedonism and over-indulgence now, and so far it's been great.
  5. Indeed, lets. I'm still waiting, actually. Is it just me or does that environment look entirely more engaging than the atmosphere we've purchased at release? @2:00 Did he say randomized, dungeons, quests and encounters? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMAyxY7mjzI&list=UUCGf0PicJgNp6yb7xsdZAwA&index=7&feature=plcp If their idea of newly generated fights, quests and environments is a continuous cycle of the same things from a pre-conceived list, he's spot on! So where's the beef? - some might say. The beef is that this is not Diablo 3, this is an imposter. A hologram. An artificial replacement. A lame duck substitute for what hype built it up to be. A cut up and slimmed down version of what should have been. In essence: a slaughtered, sacrificial lamb. That leaves myself and thousands of others saying indeed, where is the beef? Blizzard's answer: there is no cow level. But hey, we got rainbows and unicorns! Is anyone still in complete denial about how truly boring this game is or have people started to shake off the honey moon dust? You eliminated enchanting, PvP, pet companions and other things from the release version so that you could market it as part of a later expansion for more money. (This is a trend in gaming that several developers have been following; withhold content you've been advertising for the past two years and charge a premium for it at a later date. I shouldn't have expected Activision-Blizzard to be any different, and that is my fault. I wrongly assumed this group was made of trend setters and leaders, not followers - so shame on me.) You didn't include a single player mode because you can't make money off of people if they aren't using the AH in a multiplayer format. Less work for you in the development stages, and forces people to engage in the micro-economy that your bankroll is based on. Again, brilliance. Which leads me to my final point: There is so LITTLE dynamic to this game I cannot believe it took this many years to create it. In fact, I don't. So why the long wait? I'll tell you: economic law. More specifically, the legality and complications that stemmed from the idea of a multinational game built around a Real Money Auction House. This process, I imagine, took years to iron out - while the game itself probably took no more than a few actual working years to complete (and it truly shows). It doesn't take an overly intelligent mind to figure WHY they would want to use a RMAH and get a cut of (a lot of) the transactions. That's fine. Here's the problem: you built the entire game around a pure gear grind, and then force that gear grind to revolve around the AH, specifically the RMAH. There is literally no other dynamic. When you build a game from a purely business stand point, you're not building a great game - and a great game this is not. In conclusion, gamers, do you really want to spend your time on yet another slave-like gear grind? If so, eat your heart out. You'll find no better place to do it! If not, there are a plethora of other games out there much more deserving of your $60, I promise. Diablo 3 was built around Activision's greed. Participate at your own will. Gamers hold grudges and people aren't going to forget this disaster. If you obliterate your true fan base, the pillars of your success come falling soon after. I give this post less than a few hours before it is deleted by Blizzard moderators. Can't have that bad flavor out there, can we? Truth hurts. Regards, a long time fan."
  6. Blizzard has turned to shit with this game. I used to back them up but it's just a sad company know. Throw 'em with the rest of the bullshit spewers. Here's a briliant quote from the forums: "Well I have to applaud Blizzard in all reality. From a business stand point it would seem like you're on the perfect track to make the shareholders at Activision very, very pleased. You've taken a game with so much hype built around it, a game with a rabid and wildly large fan base, a game vaulting off of the massive success of the previous generation - and you've turned it into your sacrificial lamb. I understand that WoW is dying. The cash cow that you have been able to depend on to fill your coffers is finally drying up. It had a great run. MoP is not likely to defibrillate the failing heart of what was once the WoW empire, and you know this. Starcraft 2, while an amazing game, cannot replace this cash cow - then again it wasn't meant to. How could it? Your business foresight is very, very attuned. Because of this you carefully planned your next chess move: Diablo 3. What better way to birth another golden goose than to bank an entire game off of the most addictive part of what Diablo 2 was: the item grind. Pure brilliance. And so, from the ground up, you formed this game to be solely about item exchange - this would be the titan built to replace WoW's subscription based bankroll in the form of micro transactions. Except one thing: you're boring. On May 15th 2012, after nearly a decade of anticipation, we were given Diablo 3! Except, it's not quite Diablo 3. It's a slimmed down, cut up version of the Diablo 3 everyone was taught to expect. Except, it wasn't given to us, we still had to pay you full price for it: $60. My how the mighty hath fallen. Why is it not Diablo 3, you say? Well let's see. Anyone remember all those teaser videos spoon fed to the community over the past 3 years? Videos slowly leaking to us glimpses of the content we could expect to experience? I do. From nearly FOUR years ago: @2:10 "These current weapons just won't do!": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K0YkUH6r6c&list=UUCGf0PicJgNp6yb7xsdZAwA&index=1&feature=plcp I guess scrapping this idea all together was more developmentally cost effective. @6:30 "Let's see what a real fight looks like."
  7. I know this might not be the right place to ask but does anyone have any invites to spare? I'd love to get back in there, lost my account ages ago. T_T Would sincerely be very appreciative to whoever helps me Edit: And what the hell, I used to have a picture!
  8. I just downloaded it, it's installing right now, hopefully it's good. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but it seems to me almost every other combo ends in a launcher or switches my character. I've always always hated the 3 punch/ 3 kick system, incredibly unnecesarily complicated. The Tekken characters translate poorly into this system, I seem to remember tekken 3 using a 2punch/2kick system
  9. I kid with the description. Basically I've been playing War Metal Tyrant on Kongregate, which is an online Collectible Card Game. Recently they introduced a new promotional card which non-US players can't get unless they have a Gamestop PowerUp account, which you can only make if you go to any Gamestop across the U.S. and ask them to make you one. Once I have the 13 digit account code, I can link the PowerUp account with my Kongregate account and I get an awesome, U.S.-exclusive card. Would anyone be willing to do this for me? I have nothing to offer in return but I'll always owe that person a favor whenever he decides he needs one. Cheers edit. : forgot to mention that the person who does this keeps the account and after I'm done linking it, 275 gamestop points (or w/e they're called) are credited to that PowerUp account, and since I have no use for it being from Romania where GameStop doesn't even exist, that's sort of a reward you can use I suppose. edit 2.: nvm, I found a code lol. thanks
  10. That's true but my parents have already agreed on spending the money so really, might as well make a decent rig that'll last. I can upgrade parts later on down the road.
  11. You know, I'd do that and thanks for the offer, but I'm not sure how that'd sit with my parents really. And yes, prices here are jacked up to hell and back nowadays due to government imbeciles.
  12. So I made a build: http://www.pcgarage.ro/vizualizare-wishlist/304570/ Total converted from Romanian money: ~1600 USD. So yeah, sucks I know. Not sure if my parents are up for this.
  13. Amazon ships to Romania. Also, I'd like to find a decent nVidia card, because I'm a fanboy Currently interested in only 1 as well. SLI/Crossfire might come afterwards. Also, retarded noob question, but I noticed that 8GB of ram (2x4), is that like a two dual channel kits or a quadra channel kit (does it exist)? edit: added you on MSN if that's cool. edit #3: I tried ordering parts for a full rig off Amazon, 80% of these items couldn't be shipped to Romania.
