@Lady Dragonfly, Egads, did you know multi posting is an offense? Don't do that, it is ugly. Yes, that crossed my mind but when someone is wrong on the internet, no risk is too great, no bandwidth is too precious. It must be done. The lost sheep must be brought back into the fold, FTW. You of all p...

Basically, what sear is saying. I get to hear this "you should be more objective" criticism every now and again (usually on RPGWatch, for some reason), and what people tend to mean by it is "I don't agree with you!" Because for most people objective = my opinion. My logic in reviews has been the sa...

Epilogue Here's the thing. Reviews are not objective. They cannot be, and they shouldn't try to be. Letting hype and other biases drive opinions is a bad idea - but ultimately what's being discussed is how much a given person enjoyed a game, and why. We can justify that as much as we like (and we do...

Part Deux What do "small" and "linear" mean here? Why is exploration severely lacking? You can wander nearly as far as the eye can see in many places, Chapter 1 and 2 have large (but not huge) outdoor areas to explore, and within those environments there is a ton of detail to take in - heck, you can...

Looks like my post is too long so I will probably have to make it into a trilogy or smth. Reading is completely optional, unlike mini-games in TW2. @sear I agree that mechanics make a genre - mostly. But, there are intangibles that we also tend to factor in when evaluating whether or not a game fall...

@sear Thank you for your comments. I can't speak for Brother None, but a lot of people equate RPGs not just with mechanics, but with the ability to inhabit a world that reacts to the decisions you make. “A lot of people do/think/act this/that/my/his way therefore you are wrong” is a fallacious argum...

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, I finally read through this thread and decided to reply. I must say I find Kaer's observations legitimate and pertinent, and written in a refined style I cannot hope to match. Anyway...

Thanks for the comment, sorry I did not reply sooner. Anyway... You are playing multiplayer and I am playing solo. Always solo. I should've mentioned that specifically, my fault.

Diablo 3 Final Thoughts [SPOILERS]

So, is this the game we the Diablo fans have been waiting for, like, 12 long years? What the hell? Not mentioning the servers problem which by itself can drive even a well-mannered lady such as myself nuts, in some aspects the game is a huge disappointment. Is it WoW 3 or Diablo 3? I don't mind medi...

I am here to join the ranks of the players dissatisfied with the endings. Not only are these endings totally ridiculous and out of place, as was pointed out in the previous posts, but they are also insulting to the whole idea of C&C. Regardless of all the choices your protagonist made in the course ...

Happy New Year, folks. I hope your heads are heavy and your memories fuzzy. That means you had a great New Year celebration.

I don't have any New Year resolutions -- I hit the XP cap long time ago and all my stats are maxed out.


Wishing you to roll a perfect 20,
