Diablo III: What the Auction House REALLY Means.

Note: Wow, so it's been two years since my last blog; figures it would take Diablo III to bring me back into writing. Hope you enjoy!

That's a hardcore badass

In the end, just remember, this is only available for people who are building softcore characters. I know I'll be making a Magician for farming, and a Monk for kicking ass in PvP... but the real trading will be where all the badasses are: Hardcore, bitches! I'll be the bad motherfucker with the pile of bones next to my player banner.


Other Toughts

If you've ever played Diablo 2 online, you'd know that the only way you could access your character is by logging into Battle.Net. Even if you wanted to play your character solo 11 years ago, you still had to have access to the internet. It is pretty stupid that there is no option for a LAN or real singleplayer, though.

I'm still bummed that it's 4-players max. You can't even make a game with each class, and that's just dumb. /sadface

The level cap doesn't really mean much to me, but I'm glad I don't have to focus on advancing skill progression for every single level. I'll make a build, finish inputting my skills, then tweak their abilities for the remaining 30 levels of the game while getting gear. I also appreciate that every skill has a useful purpose. D2 used most skills for synergies, which was clever, but it's nice to actually sink points into several skills knowing I'll be using them all.

About Arttemisone of us since 11:30 AM on 01.25.2008

My name is August, though you'll almost always see me with the pseudonym, Arttemis. I've been familiar with gaming since Atari days, but it wasn't until the release of Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 1998 that I was an avid fan. While those are still some of my favorite games, my favorite genre is, without a doubt, action games. DMC3 is potentially my most-played title of all time, though I can see Bayonetta taking its place.

Quick note - most of my activity is done through my phone (Xperia Play, rooted/BL unlocked), so I apologize for my plethora of typos and incoherent sentences.

Objection! - Me at PAX'09!

Happy Winner of a Free Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400! Thanks, Dtoid!
