I hope they go ahead and do a D3 endurance run just to spite all the haters. Seriously.

He's talking about the best way to show other people he's a jackass.

The more Diablo coverage the better. Love the game and watching other people play it. It definitely helps that this game is great about Alt-tabbing and multiple monitors so I don't have to stop playing.

I was cynical, but I gave the game a try and it's probably my favourite game this year so far.

Except this one was great in theory as well as in practice.

Yes, and if by boring you mean entertaining then you're right. Agree to disagree?

Haha, holy crap, I haven't seen that much negativity in a while. I think someone needs a hug.

After playing to act 3 last night I can tell you this game isn't mediocre at all, it's insanely fun, if you have friend... which you might not given your attitude :(

Posted by Pixel_Kaiser

Not to sound like a jerk but I just could not get into this TNT, I had to just stop and wander off. I've never really been into Diablo but I figured their banter would be enough to keep me entertained, and even that seemed kind of downplayed. It's like they were too focused on the game or something, weird! But yeah, I dunno, this just didn't do it for me.

That is some premier, I dare say classic, internet negativity. It's weird seeing in here because while we have our fair share of shitty comments, they seem to be at least a notch above the base crap that you see at bigger gaming sites or the internet in general.

New video player looking worse than ever before. Not only is it SD, but now theres actually a black border around the video. =// Any status update on this issue?

At least the video player works for you dude, I just get the thumbnail stay and the play button disappear. Thank fuck for the HTML5 player.

Great fun to watch you guys. Probably one the best TNTs of recent memory! I feel more at peace with the way D3 is going after watching this. The gameplay today had a decent amount of nostalgic feel for me. The hectic arguing, the anger, the child-like joy of new loot. This is what Diablo is all about even though it's mostly retreading the same old ground all over again, just like much of Starcraft 2. And it's surprising how obtuse the UI still is - the streamlining is both annoying and ineffective at the same time (just let players teleport to buddies by clicking the portrait like in Sacred for fucks sake, what's up with the pointless revive/ town portal/ banner system?!?). The game generally isn't even polished like Blizzard games supposedly are, what with the busted launch, gamebreaking bugs (the follower shield thing) and even sort of 'work in progress' game systems.

I guess that's where I'm out as far as actually buying it myself. This games is as busted as the ones that came before - Diablo 1 & 2, Titan Quest, Sacred 1 - but also requires me to pay full price and buy into their MMO-esque scheme with yet another useless online service attached to it. And I can't stomach all of that at the same time, that's just too much trouble for practically playing the same goddamn game all over again. If you love MMOs, haven't played a Diablo game yet or just psychologically need that Blizzard brand on your product this shit will probably legitimately blow your mind, I can see that now, but I don't need to play this.

Also, I must say the Butcher's taste has degraded in horrible ways! What was wrong with your sweet-ass room decorated with the insides of people old buddy?!

@thebigJ_A:

I'm guilty of this little misnomer(?) myself, but the "word" PC is actually an abbreviation for "Personal Computer".

Apple makes PCs, as does Dell, and HP, and Toshiba....

Intel makes parts for PCs, so does AMD. Microsoft makes software and hardware for PCs.

PCs can run any sort of hardware, software...so long as a computer is for personal use (I.E. not a server or large development workstation, or some industrial device...), it is a PC.

Now, that being said, there are very few reasons (hardly any of them really valid in today's world) to purchase an Apple-produced PC. Nearly every thing you can do with an Apple product can be achieved with non Apple-specific hardware, and can be performed under a Windows, Linux, or other OS. Apple products have never been impervious to malware..and recently, nefarious groups around the world have once again focused their energies on making Apple-specific viruses, trojans, and ransomware. Overall account and computer security is no stronger on an Apple machine versus a properly set up machine with any other OS on it...and the same can be said for user friendliness.

However, if you truly do like the look and feel of an Apple product, and if you do a *lot* of multimedia design work, or if you don't have the time or the energy to learn how to make non-Apple computers work for you the way you want them to....go ahead and buy an Apple computer.

So in spite of my fears, I bought it today for my 2007 iMac... and it runs fine! Phew. That's now the second Blizzard game Brad's got me into.

Edited by Robaota

I've personally really been enjoying the fact that the guys aren't perfect at video games, I think it's a lot more fun this way. I think a flawless performance in these games would be pretty damn boring. This way the victories they do get are that much sweeter for me to witness.

In other words, I really enjoyed this.

While I love Giantbomb and the guys, it was a little frustrating watching this QL. I just wanted to be in the room to provide friendly advice :)!

"Patrick there is a buyback tab! Yes, click to teleport! Brad, your basically invincible at this stage, protect the younglings!" - I would have said.

Edited by SpunkyHePanda

Here's a tip I got that I've found pretty useful: map the "stand in place" key to your space bar. You can comfortably hit it with your thumb without taking your fingers off the number keys.

And I disagree that it's not worth picking up the white items. Any gold counts! And it takes very little time to warp to town and sell it all.

I really wish these guys had a better barometer of what's entertaining sometimes. You really need to have one or more of Jeff, Vinny and Dave, the power triplets.

Brad "Hopefully you'll level up quickly"

Then Brad kills everything before anyone can get near...

Diablo 3 is awesome though

If it's going to be just game play - they need to pair a funny guy (Vinny or Jeff) with someone who isn't (Brad, Patrick, or Ryan) - to balance the funny factor.

"What's over here?

OH GOD!"

Any count on how many times that sequence happened?

Posted by SSully

@i8246i: While what you say is completely true, people differentiate the words PC and Mac for the sake of convince. It sounds better and is much easier to say then, "Windows Computer" or "Linux Machine".

Posted by cbarnes86

In my experiences with D3, I freaking love it. Really the only thing I miss from the previous games is being able to distribute attribute points manually and having attribute requirements on gear. I do however feel this game is much larger than D2 and love playing every single class, unlike D2.

My favourite part was how Will would basically troll them in the in-game chat. Always gotta find a way don't you, Will.

Considering I don't think Jeff is super interested in this, and Vinny+Dave are running the camera and other equipment I think you can appreciate the situation.

Edit: Correction, Dave is in the middle of a huge site redesign, Drew is the one helping Vinny.

Posted by Skanker

This is informative... kinda? But it's not entertaining or funny. Wish Jeff and Vinny could have been there!

Posted by theimmortalbum

@Skanker: Vinny is, running the video. You can hear him towards the beginning.

Loved this TNT. Alexis is fast becoming a hilarious support-dude.

The preview picture says alot about what your eyes think about Diablo III, my eyes are so damn red after playing this game too much. Gotta love eyestrain.

No thanks.

Posted by bunnymud

Brad was SUPER annoying in that TNT

"You should try to resurrect them when they die."

"MAYBE THEY SHOULDN'T DIE SO MUCH HURR HURRR!"

"YOU GUYS WANT THE FULL DIABLO 3 EXPERIENCE!!!" Because looking at the AH would be sooo entertaining in a TNT.

I think I would drive off the road if I had Brad in the backseat of my car.

Posted by Cheesebob

@ThePickle: Alexis is awesome!

Posted by Superkenon

Good stuff. It'd be cool to see them to a bunch of boss runs after the game's been out awhile.

Just a public service announcement. Take advice from a guy that has way too much gold on WoW. Pick everything up and sell it. It adds up. Brad I don't think is much of a gold maker.

Believe me, I don't expect the world when I watch a video on here. And truthfully, moments like the Will Chad thing kinda saved this TNT.

Yeah you should be sweet. There's a check box here which will drop off all the extra processing, make sure you have the resolution a bit lower than your monitors default cause you'll get a better frame rate. I even have low shadows, high textures and physics and it runs smooth as a babies. Play with the settings till you get it perfect!

Posted by Arrested_Developer

I can't help but pick up everything when it's free to town portal back at any time.

Posted by toots

Diablo is really boring. With Dave, Vinny and Jeff playing it though, that would have been awesome
