Ok it’s been 15 years since diablo 2, it’s nearly as old as me. So why does Blizzard not realise DRM is bad publicity and is just bad all together. I can’t play Diablo 3 by myself for ten minutes with disconnecting. It’s just incredible that they still have not fixed this. Diablo 3 is the highest selling blizzard game right now, get your act together Blizzard people want to play but they can’t. It’s just so bad that the game is so good yet this happens.
If you’ve played Magika you will love Diablo, Diablo is just a great game in general, but if your planning on casualy playing it then just wait a few months cause it’s just down right disgraceful that I can’t play a single player game without it disconnecting me and losing all the drops I found. Like imagine that high level you would be shattered.
last thing I’m going say Blizzard get your act together this just down right disgusting .
When I was a kid I used to play a lot of games, it was a time when gaming was considered to be nerdy and indie but as the years moved on my obsession went mainstream. But what I didn’t notice at the time was I wasn’t just losing my personal obsession, I was losing the standards I had with every game.
When I popped a disc into my ps1 I had a standard where if the game was broken or didn’t meet the requirements I didn’t want I labeled it bad. Now whenever I download a game off steam and I find problems I get a patch for it the next day. When xbox live and steam started this crazy conundrum that if its broken we will patch it I was thrilled to now know that all my future investments will be fixed with a simple patch. But as I saw the years go on with patches and dlc I saw a drop in quality. Developers knew back in the time of ps1/ps2 that if their game wasn’t ready or finished at the time the publishers wanted they would be releasing a broken game. Now developers realize that with a simple new line of code they can just patch it. So in short the future has made game developers lazy from what I can see. Back when I was on my ps1 I noticed the fact that the games were hard, and they rewarded you properly for your efforts. Whereas most games these days give you what you want on a silver platter.
It’s for these reasons I hold developers like Blizzard and Valve with a high amount of respect for they don’t release a game until its perfect. For example Blizzard have been working on Diablo 3 for seven years and valve maybe tight lipped about their projects but they put years into each game they make The standards that we always abided by back in the age of gaming have been lost, it also ruins reviews and other critics launch expectation by saying “they will probably patch it later on”. This isn’t all bad though; it’s just another cycle for the evolution of games like when games could be played at home. Like, did we ever imagine that in a just a few years later we wouldn’t even have to go outside to get a game? It is just a shame to see that what we held all our values and opinions on is lost because we wanted change. I guess as the saying goes “if it ain’t broken don’t fix it”

Well finally got around to buying twisted metal.
Twisted Metal is a car combat game it’s like mario kart but more complex and darker. Their is only one way I could define Twisted Metal and that it is bad ass. Every aspect of the game is bad ass, one of the cars is a killer Ice cream truck that can turn into a robot. Yea it’s that awesome
This twisted metal is a revival of the series that started on ps1 and carried onto ps2 and now ps3.
I am just going to throw this out before anyone thinks about buying it. If you are kind of person who grew up on next generation consoles and ip’s you will have some trouble with twisted metal, it’s a really hard game.I had no problem due to the fact I grew up on hard games but twisted metal rewards players who have an aggressive playstyle. If you have a shot at killing someone then you go all out on killing him cause you could die any second while playing this. I feel as if this is a throw back to the old retro games I used to play where hard games were normal and rewarded you for your efforts. Also should be noted that the controls are really weird, I strongly suggest that you change them or check em up on the tutorial mode.
The soundtrack consists of techno,rock and heavy metal a normal gamer choice of music that really do set your heart pumping. This game really does give you a lot of adrenaline.
When I say you should be aggressive about your play style you should also take into consideration when to use your weapons cause you use them up real fast.
Twisted Metal is a throw back to an age of gaming that is lost where skill and hard work was rewarded greatly. It is also one the most action packed explosive games I’ve ever played it is definitely worth your time to check out but you should be warned about its difficulty curve and aggressive play style
P.s. Just for future reference I will never give scores to a game. I believe they are the reason that puts most developers at risk thanks to metacritic and other assorted sites that most people go to for gaming views. It is a stupid system and believe that most people shouldn’t judge a game based on a number. it should judged by personal opinions and people should get varying opinions before purchasing a product it’s a laughing stock and I’m embarrassed as a consumer that my fellow gamers sometimes act this way and for that reason you will never see a score from me only personal opinion

Its funny when I say this but games did have a big impact on who I am today. Like the experiences that games gave you back when I played them you will probably never get again due to the main stream identity it has gotten. But back when I played games there was something magical about them, was the interactivity that made it what it was or was it the stories and rich emotionally developing characters they gave us. The games i played bolstered what I think everyone forgets about gaming.
We started playing games because it was fun. Like the experiences I had in Final Fantasy 7 I will never see from another game ever again. It saddens me how much we all lost growing up so when I see gaming webcomic blogs like this
it kinda pulls at my heart strings to see that although we may never see gaming become as beautiful as it once was at least we can remember and cherish those moments with others who feel the same. I think its just sad that kids who are the same age as I was when I played those amazing games will never be able to feel the same about games due to the quality we get now.
