    Diablo 3 is the only game I can actually lose my mouse cursor in. I've played most ARPGs since their conception and never encountered that problem anywhere else, and in an ARPG it's quite a large...

    For the final boss fight things will probably get a bit hairy. Even on veteran my absurdly powerful squad which had been deliberately saving ammo for that fight had some trouble. That was with a...

    Bladestorm pales in comparison to implacable anyway. It's hard to get better than an ability that lets you completely forget about cover, run out into the open, double tap something in the face with...

    I had to abandon a first playthrough courtesy of the doomsday countdown not being very well explained at all. Before I really knew what was happening it was 75% done with me scrambling to get...

    So far the only enemy that's been cause for concern is Death (and he's not a threat to me, he just annoys me by erasing my pawns), everything else just melts since I have gold dragonforged BBI level...

    Just killed Daimon for the first time. Not very difficult at all with magic archer and sixfold bolt. Frankly the earlier Gazer was more difficult and I haven't so much as tried to kill Death yet.

    As I read it the main benefits with NG+ are extra portcrystals and a quick, easy teleport to the Ur Dragon.

    As I was (accurately) told earlier, that gets easier once you set up a few portcrystals. I believe there are 5 available in your first playthrough, plus the permanent ones at Cassardis and Gran...

    Oh, my pawn's inclinations work fine, other people's are rather more variable. And I think one problem is I made a tank pawn, which is a very simple role for a pawn to carry out, beat shield, beat...

    Hard mode must be impossible to use pawns on then, they're plenty stupid and worthless on normal, I can't imagine how bad they must be with enemies that one shot kill.

    Well DD has answered a question I didn't know I wanted the answer to. "What would Skyrim have been like without fast travel?" The answer? Really fucking annoying.

    Since there are so few of us here, it'd also work to simply divvy up a few more rookies each way. The free for all is only particularly necessary with a larger player pool.
