The improvement from the SNES Mortal Kombat 1 to Mortal Kombat 2 for a long time was thought of as the best overall improvement for a very long time. MK 2 for SNES blew MK 2 for Genesis away. I had a dream cast which I foolishly sold to my brother's friend when I was going to college and I also had MK 4 for it. Shortly thereafter, I found out you could pirate dreamcast games without any actual hardware and I was so into it that I attempted to buy the dreamcast back. That never worked out though and dreamcast was never heard of again.

Holy crap. Decided to just screw around in D3 for a bit with my Wizard... ended up finding Tal Rasha's amulet. Great amulet, even w/o the set bonus for being the 4th item in the set. Just need to find the Source now and it will be complete. :thumb:

Playing some games from by queue. Each Kerbal update always breaks a bunch of mods, so I'm going to wait a few weeks for everything to settle down to play it some more. I installed the DLC packs for Grand Theft Auto IV and have been playing The Lost and Damned. It's unusual in a GTA game for the player character to have his "own" vehicle. I'm used to just stealing any car I see, but I figure a biker would always want to be riding his own bike.

Also trying out Banished. It's an indie game that's like SimCity for a mediaeval village. It was created entirely by one developer.

So after finally finding that Amulet on Friday, the game proceeded to give me lesser versions each of the last 2 days as well. :lol:

Just ran the Fields of Misery 5 times trying to find the Decaying Crypt so I could maybe find that bastard yellow Enraged Phantom. Stats:

Found Decaying Crypt: 1/5
Found Rare Enraged Phantom: 0/1
Got Key of Destruction: 4/5

Obviously that last stat made it worth it. I also happened to reach paragon 22 in the process, but I was somewhere within the last "bar" when I started.

I was not actively seeking the keys, but now that I suddenly have 5 destruction and 3 terror, I am kinda tempted to take a shot at the Hellfire ring. Still not gonna focus on that per se, but if I happen to acquire the remaining keys, I'll at least give the portals a run and see what happens.

The Hellfire ring probably won't be any good for a character good enough to get one, unless you roll one with crit chance or IAS. However, they don't have a level cap, and feature an automatic exp boost, so you can equip it to a character you're in the process of leveling

Yeah, in the event that I get one, I'd prob give it to the Crusader, or any other new character I start once the expansion hits.

Minecraft = Legos for PC / mobile / whatever. There's no real "end goal" (unless you want to travel to the other 2 realms). It's a survival game at the start, and then when you're pretty comfortable with it / know the routine, it's a sandbox game.

It's good for multiplayer because it's fun to build stuff together. You can also get pretty creative with it & build some ridiculous stuff, like below. If you dislike games that don't have end goals (MMOs, GTA without the story), it's probably not your style. But if you like just screwing around in a game / like to build or create stuff, it's fun.

Digital Legos, the ios version also has infinite worlds, caves, villages, abandoned mines, and dungeons.
With the latest version it's more interesting to explore and find resources to build armor and stuff.

Oh, man, Banished is a tremendous time vampire. If any of you like SimCity type games, pick this one up. It's interesting because at the core of the game, it more about managing your villagers than it is about managing the structures on the map. The game simulates a medieval type village. Your villagers (each one of which is given a randomized name) can have only one job, and they are a resource to be managed every bit as much as firewood and food. They have children, grow old, and die over time, and you need to make sure you have enough to manage all of the jobs you need. For example, two young adults will pair off, get married, and start having children, but they need an empty house to move into. People will stack up a live in houses if need be, but you don't get families that way. So if you don't have enough empty houses, you will find yourself with an aging, shrinking population that can't fill all the jobs that need to be done.

If anyone tries this game out (and it's only 20 bucks) I have a tip I learned the hard way. If your schoolteacher is getting up there in age, make sure you have a spare educated villager ready to step into that job if the teacher dies. If the teacher job isn't filled instantly, then all of the students in the school will immediately become uneducated laborers, and there's no way to put them back in school once that happens. Uneducated workers are much less efficient than educated workers, so you want everyone to learn their three Rs.

Super annoyed at Diablo. Just completed a run where not one, but two legendary set sources dropped... both the same... but decidedly NOT Tal Rasha's. That's just cruel. To rub salt in the wound, neither is good enough to replace my current source either.

I never beat it for PS3:( with it being $50. I traded in 3 games and didn't have to pay anything. Can't wait to play.

Gonna be very late to the party, but how is NHL '14? The Dispersal Draft in NPR has caused me to want to do fantasy drafts in the game again, and I don't have any of the new generation so I figured 14'd be good enough. It's only $30, whereas '15 will be meant for the new consoles, not 360 (which I have).

Is it worth the pickup for $30, or should I just buy the new one?
