This doesn't even really make sense. Everyone wants their consoles to be home entertainment units, which means sony is putting a blu-ray player in it anyway. Even if games where ready to go to digital only, which they're not, movies are even further off.

Why aren't games ready to go digital only?

Random is random. I know it sounds like a cop-out but it is the truth. That said, I am having the same issue with my Witch Doctor - in the same area and in the same act. I have been ever-so-slowly making my way through. I can survive well enough, but I don't do enough damage. The way I see it is I have 2 options to get out of this rut. I can keep farming (perhaps I need to go back to act 1? I haven't tried that yet), or I can use the auction house. If you're a purist then your only real option is to keep farming and hoping for some upgrades. But if you need an immediate fix, you should really use the auction house.

It is easy to make money on the AH too so don't just vendor/salvage all of your gear (if that is what you have been doing) take the stuff you don't want or need and try selling it on the AH for a reasonable price. You may have to do some very minor research but it isn't intimidating in the least. Anyway, I hope some of this helps. Good luck!

I feel like as far as content is concerned its the same stuff, which is great! It's why I come here! But I feel that the servers are slower or something here because it takes a bit longer to load content like videos and the podcast versus what it used to take. Also the audio sounds lower quality (or something is ever so slightly off about it) since they made the transition. Keep in mind these are both very minor complaints. So minor that I questioned whether I should even say anything.

Poor Brad. I feel for him. I really do. It's definitely not easy to divide your attention so drastically between playing a game, and giving meaningful/entertaining commentary at the same time. I bet if Brad played some games without the addition of needing to commentate on it - and just focus entirely on the game - we would see that he plays a lot better. I don't mind seeing brad "pulling a brad" it keeps things interesting.

Maybe they could get the rest of the funding from kickstarter.

Diablo 4 coming November 2013

This is Blizzard we're talking about so your joke doesn't make any sense.

Nah, I'm super stoked. The wait for the game is killing me and I haven't had a game able to give me that feeling in a very long time. I can play the game in 4 days and 11 hours from now and it feels like it will never come. Hell, on Monday they are letting us install the game in advance for the game's release (which is on Tuesday just to clarify) and I'm excited about getting to click "Install" even though I have to wait an entire day from that point to actually play!

You don't pay a monthly fee, in fact, you could potentially pay for the game - by playing it - by using the Real Money Auction House. If you're lucky (and smart) enough to find a great item and have been keeping track of prices on the auction house, you could put it up and earn a pretty penny. My goal is to eventually pay off the cost of the game this way :D but that's a long-term goal, I'm not expecting to be making tons of money on the AH - this probably won't happen for at least a year or longer.

You will be fine if you jump into Diablo 3 without having played the first 2. You will miss out on a lot of nods and minor references to past events but the major parts will be covered through the story-telling devices in the game (cinematics, cut-scenes, quest dialogue, lore books, etc.).

Blizzard has an official retrospective which you can check out here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/media/videos/?keywords=&view#/extended-retrospective

I haven't watched it for a long time so I don't recall what all is in it, but I am pretty sure the basic story is outlined and a primer for the D3 storyline is in there too.

@Crono: Do you have a 5 sided die? :)

No, but I figure if I roll a 6 I just won't play Diablo at all.
