Agreed. D3 just feels like a casual _i_ -.- _i_ to their original fans. Progress and improvements to gameplay, interface, design, etc are fantastic additions to the Diablo franchise, but not at the cost of removing some of the features that got you there in the first place. I'm sure someone will hop on here and defend the this trash again.

Things wrong with D3:
  • No Mods
  • Lack of Eyefinity/Surround
  • 24/7 Internet requirement even for Single Player
  • Death of Single Player as a result of the above
  • and Pay2Win

Pass.

If torchlight is made by 12 year olds that have a passion for what they do versus Blizzard who could care about only padding their bank account with a game that was destined to do so anyway then I choose Torchlight 2 in all of it's cartoony glory.

"It's a single-monitor only game, and that's because the game literally only pulls info from the servers for a specific distance away from the character for bandwidth reasons. The game is also built with those limitations in-mind: edges of maps don't extend way out.

Also, being able to see way out to the left or right of your character really wouldn't help that much. Triple monitor is cool for first/third person where you're getting a larger peripheral view, but in a fixed isometric camera it doesn't make a whole lot of sense."
Multi-monitor wouldn't even help in this game... the field of view is limited just like Diablo II, so your other two monitors would just be dark fog anyway.

This is fine with me and probably fine with 99% of consumers out there.

Vast majority of users, especially those with laptops, don't care at all about Eyefinity or whatever.

They started the CoD era that turned every shooter into crap with:

One key melee/melee= insta-kill
Forced camera aim when using melee
Gloving items
Extreme and unwanted head bobbing.

etc...

It's everything I hate in a FPS game, AND it's a console game ported, er, I mean ~Multi system developed~ ahhhh~... Because if I use the word port I'll have countless console-tards whining all over me.

I'm pretty sure I know why :

Buying 2 extra screen = less money spent on their stupid AH.

Alright, 90% of you are useless cry babies, Can't you see the glaring unbalance problems this posses? Also, if there is a FoW (Fog of War) then you screen would be black anyways.

God people, get a grip.

What I think they should do instead is make it support Eyefnity, but 1 window can be your character screen and another be the map, that'd be nice.

Exactly why progress. Lets go backwards ten years. Hell why not throw out dx11 and 10 for that matter we don't need those. Multi-monitor psh, hell with that cap the resolution at 800x600 so there are no "unfair advantages." Also can we get rid of those pesky high end computers their fps is much higher than the others. Cap the fps at 30 so it is fair... Oh btw some people don't have widescreen monitors so we are going with a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Essentially what they are doing by making the game "fair" is stagnating progression. This, whatever reason you want to give it, is a cop out way of limiting the work they have to do. They no longer have to support wider fov or multi-monitors, hell even widescreen, which means less work for them, even though they have spent 15 years making this game.

Any of you remember the bf2142 not supporting widescreen, because it was "unfair." Yeah that game didn't do so hot if i recall and it wasn't a bad game. EA just did a lot of stupid things to alienate their player base

I have surround/eyefinity and I can't POSSIBLY see how having this game accross all 3 screens would give you any advantage beyond a massive headache.

There's no advantage and true to the Diablo franchise, there's absolutely no hinderance so, I don't quite understand the point of your rant.

Diablo will be Diablo...That is all.
