LOL .. so much hate.

D3 is still top 10 on xfire, and certainly way more people are playing it, than something like Eve. Want to be the expansion is going to sell millions?

You do realize online play doesnt mean being logged into xfire while you are solo farming act 3 inferno right? If that is your definition of online play I really feel sorry for you. Who uses xfire anymore anyway? It's like bragging about having a nice set of sneakers, no one cares about your shoes.

Every game they make will sell millions. That doesn't mean its worth playing or even a good product. I was one of the biggest Blizzard fanboys in the world back during D2 and WC2/3 days, but I feel like they have completely lost track of what made them great.

I will say this, despite my utter disappointment in Blizzard, if the D3 xpac looks good, I'll buy it if not just to get my money's worth out of the original. The D2 xpac greatly improved D2 imo, even though the original was pretty damn good too.

Twist it however way you want but you said online was dead which is clearly not the case. I have never had any problems finding parties to play with and there are tons of people online. This is something I cant say for a lot of other games. The original D2 was kind crappy. LoD made that game great.

Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

So anyone who has different taste in music, movies or games is a moron? could you be any more full of yourself? i am also getting old and i have friends who are in their 40's but none of them is arrogant like you. So is it really about getting older or that is who you are as a person?

Plus, it is still top 11 on xfire when i checked 5 min ago. That is "less dead" than many games and miles ahead of games like Eve.

Atleast you are honest. I used to have a cousin like you. Always nagging and making fun of friends and family. trying to make them feel bad for what they wear, music they listen to, movies they watch etc etc.

Its been 6 years now and no one invites him to family get together anymore. Last time i heard his girlfriend also got fed up of him because he constantly made her feel like crap. He is 45 year old and single.

He is by far  the most annoying person i have met. Someone you wouldn't want in your company when you go out. Although, in his mind he thinks he is Bond or someone with a very refined taste and better than everyone else, But in reality no one gives a crap about him.

I would give my right arm to stop being invited to family functions.  Is this how I go about it?

He didn't say they ostracised him for his taste. He said they ostracised him for making other people feel like shit for their tastes. People that attack others on their tastes because they believe their own to be superior reap what they sow. Taste is also often not as exclusive as "high brow" internet wannabes would like others to believe.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

Oh, most people dont think Blizzard is lying they just think that Asian subscribers shouldnt count because "Asian" automatically means Chinese and Chinese players pay "pennies on the hour".


They then have a "well thought out and researched" reason as to why Chinese subscribers comprise "80% to 90%" of total WoW subscribers.


And if you point out something like "wait, then how can WoW make $1 billion a year in revenue if 90% of the player base subscribes for pennies?" well theres a perfectly "logical" answer for that too. Its because Blizzard "steals" from its players by charging for services like server transfers and race changes or selling mounts.

Because as we all know selling mounts or pets once a year that generates a couple million in cash adds up to a billion every year.

Me and my WoW kiddie friends went to a fine dining restaraunt and ordered an exquisit meal with some wonderful wine.

 

We were appaled by the classical music being piped in and we all complaind that it didn't taste like a MicDonalds Happy Meal. Very sad.

 

I guess ShackyMo is right about us.

 

The good thing is, after eating the disappointing meal, we asked for a refund...because that's what people do. right?

Is it arrogance or hypocracy? Tell me, do you ever enjoy low brow mass appeal entertainment like the Avengers?

In fact, if you are so high brow, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be going to your next art exhibit, or poetry appreciation meeting?

LOL ..i wish i can ask for a refund. Actually i do like go michilin star restaurant hunting with my wife, and we are going up to NAPA this weekend. Certainly i can spew "oh this wine has big bright fruit up front, less oak, and a good staying power" (BTW, i drink a huge pinot noir fan) but at the same time, it is no better or worse than enjoying a good milk shake or soda.

I think ShackyMo is just pretentious. Entertainment is entertainment.

Well I wouldn't call avengers low brow really, its not a bad piece of escapism, the people behind it wanted to make a good film, not just make lots of money.

It's like music, I don't particularly like heavy metal or opera, but I appreciate the people who do make it have a passion for it and want to make good art. But I hate with a passion plastic manufactured pop music, I had it as a kid when Pete waterman inflicted his ear wasps upon the nation, I have it now with Simon cowell and his collection of karaoke singers pumping out songs written by middle aged old farts. There's no art involved with that. It's all about the moolah.
