Today i was stumbling and i came across a surprise. blizzard has released a new patch for Diablo 2. i seriously thought no one played this game no more. I guess I was wrong
Diablo II Version History
- Patch 1.12
Downloadable Installer Support
- If all required Diablo 2 ‘.MPQ’ files are installed on the hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.
For users that originally performed a ‘Full Installation’ and wish to run without the CD, all ‘.MPQ’ files should be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory. Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of Destruction CD. Mac users will need to copy these music files and rename them to ‘Diablo II Music’ and ‘Diablo II Expansion Music’ respectively.
Anyone who did not perform a ‘Full Installation’ will need to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD. In this case, a ‘Full Installation’ is required, followed by file
copy step noted above.
- Fixed an incompatibility between Rosetta and OpenGL mode on Intel Mac.
So this week was pretty much amazing. Not only did mgs4 come out, I passed my exams. Means I rock at the momenr. So what happened this week that made this week so epic? More like EPIC.
First lets go over saturday: hideo kojima came to amsterdam, I got my mgs2 signed and I was happy and hyped. Then some stupid news came to me. My ex girlfriend that I had a relationship with for a year and a person that tried to be my friend and helped me to get her back betrayed me and took advantage of the situation. And got her to like him instead of me and is now her boyfriend. I nearly threw my keyboard out of a window of of pure anger that built up after all this stuff between me and her happened. Well I needed distraction. So I decided to sell my wii and psp to get a ps3. Also this is the day the european soccer championship started.
On sunday : I took some much needed rest didn't help to much cause of the girlfriend situation. I got ready for the upcoming match between the netherlands and italy that was gonna take place on monday. I got a call from a girl who wanted my wii. She came by and bought it. Nothing much happened.
On monday: I got a call in the morning that someone was interested in my psp. I agreed a price and was happy. Today was the day that the netherlands was going to play their opener against italy. So I got a pickup time for before the match started. I sold the psp and after I watched the match. It was amazing. A 3-0 victory over italy. Great stuff.
On tuesday I was very close to my goal. I nearly had enough money to get my ps3. My grandma gave me the money I needed without me even asking:O. I refused but she wanted me to have it. Nothing else happened this day.
On wednesday my sister woke me up to go to town. I agreed and took my money with me. I found a ps3 and I bought it. Got home and played some games. I couldnt sleep because I knew tomorrow was gonna be good. So I stayed up and at 9 oclock the next morning I went to the store to get me some mgs. When I got home I played till 5 oclock in the afternoon.
This is when I got a call.
It was my main teacher. He gave me news that I passed all my exams and that I could collect my grade list at seven oclock. I was overjoyed. I was afraid I was gonna fail. I got to school and was amazed.
Physics2 the hard kind: 7.4
chemistry: 7.5 (pure shock to me)
biology: 7.2 ( needed a 5 or higher cause I didnt complete a task so my average went down )
maths2 the hard kind: 7,6
I was so shocked and happy with my grades. I made my mom very happy cause I havent touched any of my books for the whole 5 years. I didnt even learn for my exams. The exam party was a week ago on monday and I wore a kilt. It was great.
Then friday came. There was nothing epic about this day. Except that holland beat france 4-1. im really hyped for this championship, I really think holland can win it.
Skip saturday and on to sunday. I completed MGS4. It has to be the most epic game ive played. Its as good as the series can end. As I could ever imagine. Now I dont know what to play.
So I've played the game for about 5 hours. Just bathing in awesomeness. I like the game so far and I think it's great. I'm happy that I bought a ps3 for this game, but I don't know if a ps3 game will ever match this game. It scares me even, cause if this is the game that defines the ps3 then I need more. Well im gonna need more.
Just playing the first part shows me how this game has a beast of a replay value. So many ways to kill or sneak. And thats the point. YOU choose what YOU do to advance. You can just avoid all. Kill all. Or even help militia's fight pmc's. Or you can mix it up, its all good.
Mgs used to depend on a place where you can roam. Now you are on an adventure, and it feels so epic. The game is even split in to stages, and every time you complete a stage you get points for how ace you are. These points you can use to buy weapons ammo. Or extensions. And that is what makes the game so great, it is an allround game. It takes tactical espionage action and uses every word to its fullest. You can just do a rambo. Or you can do a snake. It makes the game deeper than you would think. The cutscenes are great and are pretty funny. The graphics are great. The sound is good. I seriously didn't think the game could feel good to me, a die hard mgs fan. But it is blowing me away.
The controls have been perfected. Cqc is easy to execute and fun to do. The octocamo, is a great addition. And the enemys make you go “wow” everyrime a new one comes on.
So i've had my ps3 for half a day and I would like to tell my first impression.
The console itself isn't very attractive, it is not square like the ps2 but it is more curved than i'm used to. It is made of that annoying fingerprint attractive plastic. I had it in a room for a hour and when I looked at it. It was totally covered. For the rest I really like the console. I like the light touchbuttons that are on the front for the power and eject. Surprisingly I quite like the sixaxis, but as a lot of people are saying, it is to light. When I first took it out of the box I thought I needed battery's. I seriously went to my supermarket 2 mins away from my house to get battery's. When I came home to my sis playing ratchet and clank I felt my fail drip from my chin. I have only given all three games I have a hour spin each. I like the feeling of the wireless playstation controller, cause i'm used to corded ps2 controllers.
I got internets setup pretty fast. Much faster than the original ps2 Internet. Im gonna try linux when I get a spare dvd to burn the iso on.. I did not know that the demos downloaded from the ps store take ages to install. Really boring. ATM im waiting for the grid demo to install.92% atm. I installed F@H so when im gone I can put that on:).overall a good buy. But every system is a good buy with mgs 4 on it. 3 hours left (posted at 6am) and ill get me copy:). Cant wait. Grid just installed so ill play that. I just like approving things.
Also, haze sucks. The trailers looked so good but the demo is soooooo baaaaddddd..
Well I woke up today to my sister hitting me on the head to get me out of bed. It worked, but I noticed she was home, Can't be I said. She skipped school with no reason. And wanted to go to town. I agreed and to be sure took my ps3 money with me.
Well in the end I did get a ps3. It was a pack with 2 controllers, ratchet and clank, and fifa 08. plus I got motorstorm for 20 euros second hand.
The shop I got my ps3 was a small shop but part of a chain of stores. I knew the guys from previous purchases. I mentioned I was getting a ps3 for MGS4. And he turns away to the drawers and takes out a brand new MGS4 game. I went in to fanboy mode and died. Then the sadistic bastard that he was told me he couldnt sell it yet. I was broken. I opened the box and was happy to see nothing in it.(with happy I mean devastated). That means ill have to stand infront of the media markt at 10 to get a copy right away.
Now to the games I got. I havent had a lot of time with them but I had a lot of fun with motorstorm. Failed at fifa because after 5 minutes I was already 2-0 down. And I liked the way ratchet and clank looks.
I havent been online yet if you send me a pm ill get back to you with my ID. Cant wait till tomorrow.
