@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2018 - 04:30 PM)

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

just revealed by blizzard in Europe icon-fire.gif


from wowinsider....

12:15 PM: World premiere video of Diablo III played onstage. Audience goes wild.

12:18 PM: Jay Wilson, lead designer on Diablo III, takes over. WWI audience will be see a demo of Diablo III in action. Diablo "reinvented the roleplaying action genre". Gameplay demo on big screen.

12:20 PM: Introducing Barbarian, one of several Diablo III classes. Overcomes enemies with pure brute force: no such thing as too much power. Several improvements: Hotbar to help players use skills quickly and easily. Quick swap between two skills using mouse wheel or Tab key. Game is so simple you can play it with just hte mouse but allows deeper, more satisfying combat. In demo, axes enchanted with frost/electricity to stun/freeze enemies.

QUOTE
12:37 -- Demo ends. The crowd roars. Annnd, the hosts are back on.

12:36 -- Multiplayer will work over battle.net. Heads into a final fight against some gigantic moving trees. Final boss here, called siegebreaker assault beast, is absolutely gigantic, maybe around six or seven times taller than the player characters.

12:35 -- Witch doctor using a fire bomb spell. Can summon a wall of zombies that stays stationary, but the zombies in the wall flail their arms and do damage to their oponents.

12:33 -- Witch doctor can cast out locus swarm, which spreads between targets and deals damage. Can summon mongrel things that he can cast locust swarm on, which buffs their damage. Outdoor environment now. Quite pretty in that vibrant, slightly cartoonish Blizzard graphical style. Like with StarCraft 2 and it's similarities to the original, Diablo 3 looks and sounds, at least at a glance, quite similar to previous games. Witch doctor also has a mass fear type of ability.

12:31 -- Diablo 3 is first and foremost a co-operative game, says Blizzard. New Witch Doctor class can summon pets, control minds of his enemies, and cast diseases.

12:29 -- Barbarian can use ground stomp attack to get skeleton warriors to drop their shields, making them easy to take out. Cultist enemies must be taken out quickly or they transform into a more destructive force. Saying there's more story and questing type of stuff in the game. Scripted events like walls breaking apart. Cultists cummoning in gigantic, fat demon who's shock waves shatter stone pillars in the environment.

12:27 -- Deckard Cain is in the game. When talking to NPCs, the game appears to switch to an interface that highlights the character model. Have to rescue Cain from this cathedral.

12:25 -- Each piece of gear is custom designed for each class. Barbarian puts on demonic sort of garb with giant devil horns. Barbarian can hop across gaps on the map. Barbarian dislodged a rock wall and dropped it on zombies, killing them. Demoing moving whirlwind attack.

12:24 -- Red orbs that drop from enemies can replenish health without you having to use items. Talking about demon foes he's fighting, they have a summon ability. Barbarian's jumping attack covers quite a distance. Goes flying up staincase. Also appear to have a shockwave type of attack. Still procure items from bookcases. Blizzard touting interactive environment as an inportant feature. Barbarian triggers a trap chest that spawns four spectral enemies around him.

12:21 -- The axe guy is the barbarian class. Says improvements have been made, like the hotbar for skills. Using the mouse wheel and tab key you can quickly switch between skills. Whoing inventory. Appears to still have slot limits. Using enchanted axes with frost and lighting ,which stuns and freezes opponents.

12:20 -- It's apparently still an action RPG. Same interface -- red health and blue orbs. Skill bar at bottom. 3/4 overhead perspective. Character with 2 axes hacking at demons in what appears to be a foggy cathedral. Has a jumping attack where he smashes the two axes into the ground.

12:20 - Jay Wilson, lead designer on Diablo 3 coming out. He's going to demo the game.

12:18 -- Footage of large scale battles, comets streaking across the sky, demons, Diablo 3 officially announced.

12:16 -- Lights going red...world premiere of Blizzard's newest game. Fire on the end of a stick, lighting a candle, it's a cinematic. Candle sits on a skull. Blizzard Entertainment logo in a stained glass display. Showing castle in a mountain range.

12:15 -- Announcement.....? Guy playing Diablo music on an acoustic guitar.

So, we've Diablo 3, SC2... and that unnamed MMO. Shadowy.

Well now that we've got Diablo III, my guess is the "Next Gen MMO" would be the successor to World of WarCraft.

That or The Lost Vikings. One of the two.

So this isn't going to be dramatically different from the two previous games? Bah. I found the point and click hack and slash gameplay to be mind-numbingly boring. Now if Diablo III had combat like Oblivion, Dark Messiah, and Mount & Blade I'd be all over this.

Yeah, having only 5 classes seems kind of weird to me.

Diablo Classes:
Warrior
Mage
Archer
Monk

Diablo Classes:
Barbarian
Paladin
Sorceress
Amazon
Necromancer
Assassin
Druid

Diablo 3 Classes:

Barbarian
Witch Doctor
Unknown
Unknown
Unknown

I'm betting that the other 3 are Mage, Amazon, and Assassin. Hopefully, they will have more classes later on in an expansion.

Diablo 2 had just five in the vanilla game, the other two came with the expansions.

I love the witch-doctor. It's a cool new take on the necromancer archetype.

My guess for the last 3 classes would be the paladin, too iconic not to include, the sorceress, for blowing jive up at range, and the assasin, for more stealthy gameplay. That would give two melee classes, two casters, and one stealth.

You see, I was thinking Paladin too, but then I thought that the Barbarian kind of fills that role. Witch doctor fills the Necro spot, leaving Magic, stealth, and Archery spots left to fill.
