Did Brad just call him "Bryan Davis"?

Patrick never ceases to shut up when they are listening to stuff...you don't need to be constantly talking dude.

I've never seen that picture before... And you just terrified me beyond belief. I did not expect that when looking at the comment... So thanks for making my morning just that bit more on edge :).

more of this!

Posted by ZmillA

is there a way to turn off the red outline on enemies? or atleast reduce it? It completely overwhelms the character model on some enemies

pretty sure it was not. but not sure

Posted by Shoobs

@ZmillA: The way that the spell effects get crazy (especially in 4 player games), the ability to see the thing you are hitting is more important than checking out the model. At least thats what I believe the design decision behind that is :)

Five minutes in.

Brad is still literally running in circles.

Edit: Now he's standing still.

Looking at Brads inventory at the end there I can see that he has an unidentified rare axe. There are no scrolls in D3, all you have to do is right click on it to identify it. If this was addressed during the course of the QL, my bad, since I just skimmed through it.

I can't decide if the D-Day reference is disrespectful or not.

Aw, this comment had me expecting something longer than usual.

Ummm, no...no, it's not.

If you don't know if it is or not, then it's not.

Also, it's been almost 70 years. I'm pretty sure there's a statute of limitations for harmless jokes.

Go to Giantbomb.com. See Diablo quicklook! See brad playing a female monk... close browser, go mow lawn.

Posted by ADAMWD

@Shoobs: I figure that Brad doesn't know that they removed Identification Scrolls, as I just found out earlier today. Was hoping he'd stumble upon it during the video, but they never mentioned it.

Edited by jakob187

So they WEREN'T joking...

Everything is just Diablo III this week. = D

Also...15:57. Brad just can't catch a break.

Well, when you consider the fact that this is a follow up video, and it's longer than some of the recent QLs, it's pretty long.

Do you mean to tell me...... I can throw spiders AND Frogs AT THE SAME TIME?!??!

Posted by Shoobs

@ADAMWD: Surely just mouse overing the item says 'right click to identify' right? They wouldn't miss that. Surely.

Posted by Redsox44

Oh Brad, takes so long to decide what to do.

Posted by hollyw00t

I'm not saying it's a good idea, but maybe do an Endurance Run of Diablo III. I'd watch.

Posted by Duxa

Wait... why would anyone ever need to have elective mode off? What would be the point in that? Does it give some other benefit?....

argh... stupid Amazon isnt delivering my collectors edition till 3 days after launch... so much for ordering 6 months in advance to get it launch day :(

I was going to make a post about this too. I know its probably hard to talk and play at the same time, but man is it boring to watch. Also picking up every single thing that drops doesn't help.

It's not, D-day it self just means the day of a military operation. There were many D-days in WW2, however media being what they are probably heard a general refer to it as d-day and they ran with it. Which was then picked up by popular culture, which then redefined the meaning of the phrase. D-day -7 (or D-7) means a week prior H-hour +6 (or H+6) means 6 hours after. Now you know more about that phrase than you care to.

Posted by HerbieBug

Brad, in future could you please refrain from clicking around all over the place at random when you're just talking on the video? It's okay to let your character stand still a minute. Your constantly clickery strains my eyes and irritates me.

Thats his new Chrono Trigger pseudonym 
Posted by eccentrix

@Cyrisaurus: I'm still used to getting an hour a day from Endurance Runs, I don't think I'll ever find a video long again. Except for E3 podcasts, those are too long.

Yep, it takes 22.3 years for a tragedy to become something that can be funny.

At least by the time you get to play the servers should be working.

avoids talents being moved in the heat of battle. i had it turned off in WoW, too easy to accidentally drag and drop a talent off your bar in a boss fight.

edit *oh shit, i had the same initial understanding brad had, ability to move icons. need to investigate it more.

Posted by buft

I'm in europe so servers might be different but i have about 18 to 19 hours so far, no problems since that first 2 hours.

@Shoobs: He never moused over, and neither Ryan nor Patrick asked about the item.

Posted by DeviTiffany

Wait... Where do you get dyes? Are they just random drops? I've gotten to Act 2 and never seen those.

Edited by Baal_Sagoth

I really like this manner of on-going coverage. Stylistically the game still looks out-dated and bland, but certainly not too cheery as early complaints would have it. The skill & character system have a distinct bizarre vibe to them but that could easily be a thing the player gets over in time. I'm still waiting for a moment that utterly sells me on this new concept and I'm thinking it'll possibly never come for me.

But as long as I'm seeing fisting monks on Giantbomb that's just fine with me!
