    @dudeglove: His YouTube channel is amazing. His poor sisters... I was hoping he would bring some of his dumb and goofy bets to Giant Bomb.

    The people living next door to Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer were unaware of what was going on around them too. I don't think blissful ignorance is a good thing.

    I hit the grinding phase and it sucks. As you pointed out, they tried to make Diablo, but they missed the most important part of loot based games, the constant handing out of loot. Maybe it's me, but...
