May 27th 2010 1:04PM I'm all for battle.net and all that, but it seems very silly of blizzard to say this. it's a distinction, sure, but a distinction without a difference.
I for one think the whole online to authenticate system is just going to become the norm, lets face it, supporting people without internet connections is shortly becoming like supporting people who didn't want to get videocards way back when.
it's just unreasonable to make the game vulnerable to millions of pirates, just so a small fraction of a percentage of players can play without an internet connection.
at this point internet is pretty much a utility like water and power.
Mar 11th 2010 11:13AM I'm rather surprised at this one guys, why so much hate?
think for a minute about where you're posting on this from, and then thing about where in the world the post above or below you is posting from.
the internet has connected humanity in a way never accomplished before, and sure there are its dark sides, but 4chan had nothing to do with what happened in iran after the last election.
the internet is clearly humankind's greatest invention, maybe you guys and gals, including engadget's Vladislav Savov, should read the wired article before mocking the idea: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2009/11/internet-for-peace-nobel/
it's a shame people on this site are so jaded, the glass is half full guys and gals.

Jan 25th 2010 12:42PM I'm glad to see a like minded fellow for once! me and my friends are kinda the kings of wing it, we have fun enough in raids sure, but we really shine when stuff goes awry. we've had some spectacular saves, my rogue friend and I kiting a boss while we whittled away his last 5% health, saving each other from the brink of death, we've got dozens of stories. we tend to play in the same room most of the time, so lots of shouts and screaming ensues, truly some of the best fun you can have in a game.
Nov 23rd 2009 12:15PM left 4 dead was fun as hell, probably won't have the funds for L4D2 till after the new year though. good luck to everyone!

great costumes though, I want the hoodie, and I don't even play a night elf
Sep 17th 2009 3:19PM if you bought the game on pc and didn't buy any dlc because windows live is utterfail, bethesda has been releasing dlc discs at retail you can buy called addon packs, the packs cost 20 bucks so far with two dlc per, so its the exact same price as on live market, except you don't have to deal with that live bs. the only issue is there is no word on if there will be a mothership zeta addon pack (which was the last dlc)
http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/info/faq.html - all info on the first two addon packs
if you already bought the game but didn't buy any dlc, but you don't want to buy the game of the year edition, you could wait a bit longer and see if they release an addon pack with all the dlc, similar to what they did eventually with oblivion.
speaking of live, this addon for the game http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=1086 disables games for windows live, meaning you can finally uninstall it, i've been playing this way for months now, it works very well! no problems
Sep 16th 2009 12:34PM I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this actually, but the future self quest is terrible if you're a caster. I died twice doing it because my future mage self didn't know how to do anything but wack the enemies with his staff, meaning my level 75ish butt had to solo them all by myself with no time to drink or eat in between fights!
Sep 14th 2009 1:33PM I'm really glad to see blizzard's team feels this way about the game, it makes me feel much more exicted and less worried for cataclysm, just knowing that this current situation of stupid stat inflation isn't actually intentional, that they will move to fix it with the expansion makes me rather happy, its a shame they couldn't do it now, but I understand they've gotta stay profitable and that they don't think most of their players would understand the massive adjustments that would need to be made. its the sad truth of the world we live in, especially with this internet culture, that people really have a hard time seeing the big picture in any endeavor.
Sep 14th 2009 12:42PM Your logic here assumes that there aren't people, whole guilds even, who obsess over achievements "just because." Now I would love to see what server you're on, but in my experience since the start of the game most players in wow seem to be on constant watch for a new wall upon which to bash their brain. Guilds break up and drama occurs over silly enough stuff as it is, no reason to add guild achievements to the mix of problem starters.
I'm with you Mr. Andrews!
