Diablo III took over the Chatty this week with both tales of woe and glory. What about console gamers? Schnapple posts a link that Blizzard has no idea whether they will bring the game to consoles, but Chatty sure seems to have an opinion on it. ashkie wants to know if there is anything else you wish was in the game. Besides an off-line mode.
redfive reads some Metacritic reviews of Diablo III after the servers go down for most of the night. Is it rational to be so upset to post a negative review about a game? A debate for the ages, and this thread is no exception. Haxim certainly has a thing or two to say about it.
Nearly four years ago, XchumpoX starts a launch date competition for Chatty, with the grand prize being a copy of the Special Edition. Which everyone forgot about. Fast forward to this week, and DHAvatar gets quite the surprise when the Collector's Edition arrives after winning the pool. XchumpoX is definitely an awesome Shacker. Now, what about Half-Life 3? Get in on the action and post your prediction for NastyJack in this thread.
