Bought Hotline: Miami for $1.49. Great purchase. Am loving the game. New flash sale just went up. Not very interesting to me... Half-Life 2 is on sale for the Flash Sale... I just can't believe there are people out there who don't own HL2 yet! Also, the community vote has gone up. Action - RPG set won the first community vote.

I personally just bought this game and it's very fun. The game is on sale for $2.49 on Steam right now at 75% off it's regular price. This update also includes Steam Workshop support for downloading new levels. The game has a story that is as fun as the game. Anyway I just wanted to share because its a great game and couldn't be any cheaper. I know this sounds like a shill post but I'm just a gamer looking to spread the good word.

Kinect games just aren't fun. I think that the designers compensate players way too much for the games to be any real fun because they don't want you to feel punished for making wrong moves. As a result, they overcompensate by making tasks too simple, or easy to accomplish. Of course with Kinect, it also can and does swing the otherway where you feel cheated by the system because you're "totally doing this right, the dumb thing just isn't picking up my movements right!" That's the problem. With a controller, the input works the same every time. With Kinect, it feels janky because you never know if it's going to properly register your movements and as a result, designers have to work around this huge flaw, best they can, by making terrible hand-holdy games.

Just beat the campaign and did an entire adventure mode clear and an entire nephalem rift run. I did it on master on hardcore, it was literally exhilerating. Almost died so many times... and the final boss? Don't even get me started with how fucking scary that was on a hardcore character. I went into this blind by the way, I didn't watch any of the beta streams or anything. I just saw the promotional stuff. Just mentioning that because my impressions are based solely on what I experienced. That said: I think the game is fucking amazing.

This is Blizzard's answer to all their fans and critics. They have finally righted their wrongs. The antagonist might be Death, but they've breathed new life into the game. The loot system, paragon system, storyline, new skills, class, act, adventure mode, the nephalem rifts, the mystic, new enemies and enemy AI... all of these things come together to create a highly polished and refined game that has markedly improved; it shows that Blizzard really took all of the fan feedback to heart and went above and beyond in rectifying the series.

I think many were hesitant about Reaper of Souls due to how vanilla had turned out, and then when they added the $40 price tag many more were dissuaded. With AAA experiences such as Path of Exile, an excellent action-RPG, going with a free-to-play business model would Blizzard be able to justify their asking price? Reaper of Souls proves that the asking price is not only fair, but also completely justified. Reaper of Souls doesn't just fix the game before it, it also pushes the series and genre ahead, all with a spit-shined polish that is unmatched in the genre as a whole.

But the biggest wrong that has been righted in the expansion? We finally do hear back from the thieves guild!

I think anyone that loves the action RPG genre but was disappointed by vanilla D3 would be blown away by how Blizzard has reinvented their own game. The team did more than work hard on this title, they worked with passion. It really shows in the end product. Following in the long-established Blizzard tradition of fixing their games with an expansion, Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls may be their finest entry into expansion territory yet.
