By now most of us are already over the whole multiplayer experience, so to invigorate us into new passions is the new FREE DLC from Bioware known as the Rebellion DLC. Like that last DLC (Resurgence), it adds new characters, weapons as well as maps but there's another addition and finally we can say that Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer has a new game objective....finally.
So the list of new items to keep us busy buying our spectre packs:
Since last week friday. Cellc has finally decided to shake up the prepaid market with an estimated customer base of 40 million by offering prepaid rates that are cheaper than contract. Cellc's new offer of 99c per minute to any network at any time and any place. This aggresive promotion should help cell c steal some valuable market share from the other networks. As their data offerings have been poor as of late. Vodacom has followed suite and will be also reducing their prepaid rates to 99c per minute by the 25 of May 2012.
So you're having a good morning, everything has gone exceptionally well so far until you decide to play some Diablo 3. So you run around for a bit, and lo and behold Diablo decides to fit in with the rest of the day and deliver EXCEPTIONALLY good ping. Bloody nice things happening all day long. It makes me sick. So you're playing but then for some reason, you still teleport around like you're from Diablo 2 and wearing a skirt. So the ping says it's good, but in actual fact, it isn't.
So how do you test whether or not your actual ping to the diablo servers is the 200 or so it says it is. You can't trust Diablo because it of course wants you to get off Blizzard's forums and play the damned game. So you need to find someone who isn't going just say the ping is good when it really isn't.
Things you can do with your money instead of wasting it buying Diablo 3.
Its been 11 years and 11 months or so, since Diablo 2 was released, and the world was finally ready for blizzard to actually do some real work and make a game for the people who supported them for their previous hack and slash kill lots of skeletons with magic game. So obviously everyone was absolutely delighted when blizzard said, hey, you guys can finally crack some more already dead skulls, in high definition 3D. All you need to do is hand over 500 of your coins, and we'll get you right on in to the action!
HAZAAAA the fans cried! I'm going to be a witch doctor said Timmy. I'm going to be a barbarian said Mickey Rourke. You're already a barbarian Mickey... I'm going to be a monk said Jenny as she put on her skin-tight spandex monk outfit. Now before this turns into a monk-on-barbarian sex scene, I'll get back to the point.
I am so frustrated. Buying the game on the 14th of May, more than 24 hours, later it's still a massive pain just to play the single player game. Make no mistake this game is the best hack and slash game ive played so far. It's just that Blizzards choice of drm leaves much to be desired.
So anyways i've gotten Blizzards official list of common errors that are currently plaguing the diablo 3 servers.
Ok so this has been motivated due to an argument that myself and another writer on tecstories had earlier today. Now what I had said was that Origins, owned and operated by EA could and might start to push into the Games Distribution market and could quite effectively completely remove Steam (owned and operated by Valve Corporation) as a means to purchase further games, the reason I say this is that we all have games on Steam so none of us want Steam to go.
Now as we all know, the big titles nowadays seem to be releasing with Steam, both HardCopy and digital, and example of a game would be Bethesda's Skyrim or Blizzard-Activision's popular Call of Duty series of which Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops and now Black Ops 2 is being sold on Steam. What most of may have noticed though is how much these games are, Skyrim is $60, same was with Modern Warfare 2 when it came out and the same was with these big titles that choose to use Steam as their form of content-delivery.
