No surprise there. I'm sure he won't be bothered to post after he was proven wrong and I was proven correct. Not that I care anyway, I'd rather not waste my time with pointless bickering. smile.gif

I actually played Path of Exile for a few hours over the weekend and was impressed with it. It is pretty much a direct rip of DIII minus not having gold as a currency but I enjoyed it. I had a marauder that I got up to level 15. I stopped playing Saturday night when the servers starting bugging out. I had brought some item to this guy at the ship graveyard and he and his minions turned on me. Then my game crashed and I couldn't log back in.

All in all it was fun but it had no effect on my anticipation for DIII. Still prepared to sink a crap load of time into it haha.

Playing as a templar in PoE, the melee combat is no where near D3's. I like in D3 how you can feel your weapon crushing the enemy as a barb. It's so satisfying biggrin.gif

Also from what I saw. the witch's spells seemed a bit lackluster to me. Maybe I'm just spoiled with D3's effects tongue.gif

Diablo 3 and Grim Dawn (makers of Titan Question - http://www.grimdawn.com/index.php ) are the games I'm waiting for. I was looking at Torchlight 2 for a bit but doesn't look all that interesting to me.

Yeah it felt quite a bit different to me too but I pretty much spammed ground slam 90% of the time. Its a aoe spell that a gem gives you and as far as I'm concerned it is completely imba. 1 hits entire groups of monsters.

I'm not familiar with Grim Dawn but I might take a look at TL2 simply because they were the original devs of DII. Honestly though the only game that I will play that may take any time away from DIII at all is Dota 2. That link doesn't work btw.

Stupid parentheses. Fixed the link and here's a new link directly to some screenshots.

Diablo knock-off's like Grim Dawn and Torchlight do nothing for me. They have nowhere near the polish or depth. Torchlight may have some of the original Diablo devs, but AFAIK some of the original Blizzard team still works there. Not to mention that Blizzard owns all the rights to the series so other games can only be so close.

Yeah I hear that. You should see Path of Exile, it is practically a Diablo clone. That and the passive skill tree seems like an exact rip from Final Fantasy X. I do like the idea of it, though.

See I have no issue with it being a rip off, because it was an amazing thing in FFX. It really should be used more imo thumb.gif

Oh yeah don't get me wrong. I like it a lot as well but it is clearly a rip off. I have no problem with games taking ideas from other games and making them their own. Just give credit where credit is due. smile.gif
