  1. When in five playthroughs on hardcore I don't die once and once I get into that battle I die 50 times and am completely incapable of beating it on hardcore it means the battle/special attack damage setting is broken.
  2. big hall, circle in the middle, her thrall is throwing spears at you while she is in the bubble...
  3. Did the new DLC fix the only broken hardcore battle in the game, the first arena battle with Jayne? You know, when you randomly and instantly get killed no matter how ridiculously high your health and armor are..
  4. Exactly, I played more Fallout New Vegas than any online game combined. Also this is an excellent topic, first two posts are a must-have for DS3 to thrive. Unfortunately there is zero feedback from developers on their own official forum.
  5. The problem with the camera is that it zooms in automatically when in tight spaces. That's the only problem with it. I still don't understand why the zooming can't be disabled, it serves no function whatsoever, only breaks the combat. Second fatal flaw of DS3 is that chaos statistics and other stats are not robust enough to generate many different builds within each class. Third fatal flaw is lack of content, when I entered Stonebridge, I thought it was the beginning of the middle of the game, not beginning of the end.
  6. Exactly. Combat is great but they really should have thought about the stat stuff, effects and how that can affect builds. It's not even a money/resource thing, it's an idea/paying attention thing.
  7. This has been already discussed on the forum many times in many topics. Basically, Obsidian Entertainment crossed the delicate line from streamlining over to dumbing down which impoverishes the game. I guess they think people are not very smart or literate or something. Also the randomness and lack of uniqueness of chaos statistics is a problem because you then can't make specific builds out of them, like lightning build or fire build, since chances don't stack. Hopefully all of that and more will be addressed in the upcoming DLC. This game is certainly too good to be abandoned, pretty much has the most fun combat system of all ARPG games.
  8. That's all very good but when you play a melee character in Diablo 3 all you can think of is "why the hell am I not playing with Lucas now?" It is far more satisfying and visually appealing, Blizzard hasn't evolved in the slightest here. Diablo 3 is just primitive, both in gameplay combat mechanic and in graphics and animation, there is no other word for it. As for replayability I got 5 playthroughs with Dungeon Siege 3 which is pretty good since the game is so short and lacking in content(practically 3-4 areas with adjoining terrain).
  9. Btw, it looks like Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning copied the combat system from Dungeon Siege 3 and then improved it and expanded everything else.
  10. With Diablo 3 beta I had the opportunity to finally experience it and: -the animation of characters is way better in Dungeon Siege 3, especially for melee character, melee combat in Diablo 3 is extremely unsatisfying and basic compared to DS3 -graphics in DS3 is way better, D3 looks really outdated with practically no lighting effects, it really shows that it should have been released a long time ago. -the only thing going for it is loot, voice acting, probably CGI and story Any informed gamer would not choose Diablo 3 over Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning or anything Dungeon Siege 3 related coming down the line later. Unfortunately because of huge WoW/Battlenet base Diablo 3 will outsell anything just like inferior Starcraft 2 outsold superior Dawn of War 2 and Supreme Commander 2.
  11. Yes, with all other battles on hardcore you can win if you are careful and know what you are doing, here it's all about randomly dieing no matter what you do so it's just a matter of repetition until you get lucky.
  12. The first Jeyne arena battle is actually the only battle I haven't won on hardcore in 5 playthroughs, despite having over 2000 health and over 200 armor...I really despise how they made single attacks kill you instantly and made armor irrelevant on hardcore. The randomness of dying was just too much. When I put it on normal I beat it without any problem whatsoever the first time. They really blew it with that battle on hardcore...
  13. I can't even play other ARPGs now, the combat in Dungeon Siege 3 is so good, it really is an evolution of the genre..
  14. I let her go the first time but I regretted it since she did slaughter all the legionnaires in the mansion, many of whom were kids so letting go a mass murderer didn't feel right. And later on you have to interact with her again...so, just kill her.
