Hearthstone and a beer go pretty well together.

Since Jeff was playing Reaper of Souls on UPF, I've been playing through Diablo III again, this time as a Monk instead of my Wizard. It definitely has some story problems and I'm not a huge fan of waiting for a skill to activate after I put a new one into the hotbar, but it's still a fun game. The always online stuff still really hinders it, I think, because my internet was spotty this weekend, causing multiple instances of the game lagging all to hell, and that feels horrible in an action game. It makes me think that I'd prefer to go with a console version of Diablo next time around, probably on PS4.

I'm planning on getting the PS4 version as well, but in the meantime I've also picked up the PS3 version. Offline play and the loot changes really do make a huge difference in the enjoyability of that game. I'm having a blast, and this time I have zero stress about disconnect deaths or worrying about how to find good gear. Hardcore mode (my personal favorite way to play) especially is miles better when you can play offline.

That's sounds a lot better, good to hear. I read that the D3 saves on PS3 can be transferred to PS4, and that would be great should I decide to go that route.

I think it's a great distinction given the state of the early-release phenomena, and in general will aid in the flexibility when talking about these games and being able to automatically couch the discussion in the fact that this game is unfinished.

It's a balmy -15 here in Wisconsin.

Oddly enough, I don't think any of those games are overrated. If anything, I think GTA might fit this list.

My list and Brad's list share 7 games, if he got rid of Dead Rising, Zelda, and Brothers for Guacamelee, Spelunky, and The Swapper, we'd have the exact same games, just ordered differently. But our #1 and 2 picks are the same. So, good job on have excellent taste, Mr. Shoemaker.
