I bought it shortly after I got mine, but I have yet to play it... I haven't even touched my 3ds for a few months, actually.

Pretty sure there's no such thing as an off-line single season mode. You're looking at MM or something online, yeah. It's been a little while since I've played, though.

Just found out that you can do single player seasons if you play one of the two career modes.

The difficulty level of Act 5 in Reaper of Souls is kind of crazy, particularly towards the end. Seems like the enemies start doing an obscene amount of damage.

Finally waning on FF XIV so I've played fifa a bit this weekend. Can't wait for 15.

I wish slow build up style was more playable against the CPU at world class and legendary.

I've been alternating between playing through Normal with my Crusader and doing bounties/Nephalem Rifts with my Wizard. I encountered somewhere between 6-10 treasure goblins simultaneously in one of the Rifts I played through earlier. Fortunately, it was right after I got a pylon that shot off electricity as I walked so I think I got all but one of them ultimately. I'm pretty sure one escaped as I found a trail of gold leading up some steps I didn't go up earlier. Didn't get any legendaries sadly, but got a TON of gold, gems, and crafting materials.

Really digging the crusader. I had been using a 2 handed weapon for some time, but Diablo dropped a sweet-ass One handed Sword that actually did more dmg than the Flail I was using AND had a socket. I switched from the skill that lets you use the 2 handed weapon one-handed to the one that gives you +15% atk speed w/ a one handed weapon and my damage more than doubled. So I made out like a bandit on that one.

My copy of the D3 expansion showed up while I was off in the mountains this weekend. I got a little bit of time in this afternoon, and plan on locking myself in my room with it this week.

I don't think that it's unplayable due to the slow style as much as the CPU players don't run into space to give you any options. I've been able to do fairly well in controlling possession and not letting in goals in my 3rd year with Milan but scoring is nearly impossible. On the off chance one of my forwards makes a run they're pulled back by some lumbering CB and either lose the ball or flub the shot. Fixing the AI to keep slow players slow all the time, not just when they have the ball or when no one is around would be a huge improvement. The lead footed CBs running down El Shaarawy from behind are K-I-L-L-I-N-G me.

I'm through act one with my crusader in D3. Lots of fun so far. Between the shield bash and the steed, dude gets from mob to mob super fast. I'm sure I'll get rid of shield bash once I unlock Fist of the Heavens, but I definitely enjoy it more than the other secondaries so far.

Installed and started playing Dark Souls 1. I heard this game had a reputation for being brutally hard, and it seems to be living up to that reputation (at least for me). I have died dozens of times. It's not helping that the PC controls are execrable, and as a consequence I'm using an Xbox controller. There are plenty of people who are great at using controllers for games like this, but as someone who hasn't played a console game in something like a decade, I'm not one of them. It's like trying to learn to write with your other hand.

I like the game, but I question the sanity of whoever thought it would be a good idea to permit players to scrawl messages that other players can see in their single-player games. The developer who came up with that was obviously unfamiliar with John Gabriel's Greater Internet F***wad Theory (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/03/19). I can't count how many times an instant-kill cliff had a player note next to it saying "Try jumping." Ha ha ha.

I have approximately 10 or 12 games in my Steam library I haven't played yet (good games), and yet here I am downloading Skyrim for approximately the fifth time to play it again. What the hell man

I agree, but I think I am going to try it with mods this time. I've played it for Xbox but not PC.

I have over a hundred games on Steam, but I'm getting an itch to play Fallout 3 again. It's been nearly four years since New Vegas came out, and I really hope Bethesda is well on their way to Fallout 4.

Yeah I downloaded New Vegas on Steam and played through it, but haven't went back to Fallout 3 yet. Aside from some of the major plot points, I don't remember a lot about that game so I'll probably play that again soon too.

I try to be an evil bastard in every single playthrough, but I keep going back to the do-gooder with occasional bad acts.
