A time honored tradition

A Time Warnered tradition? My superpunwers (force of habit really) decrees I attempt a joke(r) or pun at least o(u)nce a day. Let’s just be glad I’m haven’t tried to team up with the great heroes Analog and D-pad. (Heh… Kneepad). Heh, that reminds me, what if we had a wholesome spin-off of the Choker (sorry I mean Joker), who does puns every (en)chance he gets, and isn’t a brutal psychopathic murderer. Maybe he’d be able to groan his foes to death or (preferably groan them til they are incapacitated). (I haven’t decided if it should be a hero or… Read more »

Yeah…I think you need to brush up on the definition of ‘pun’.

I…am quite disturbed by the image of two grown-up men sitting side-by-side on the couch pissing themselves just so they don’t have to get up and take a leak like reasonable adults.

You should be disturbed by that. That is the joke, since no reasonable adult would ever go that far.

Watch the movie “Flushed Away”, then you might have an idea. It is a real problem, at least for anyone that gets into sports or video games! I lost track of how many times I’ve been squirming on the couch, hoping to find a safe place in a game to go AFK without someone getting a kill on me.

But that’s the better way to play Diablo 4 since PC for some dumb reason doesn’t get local multiplayer. Local > Online, always

You’re misinterpreting what I said

The experience of playing locally is always more enjoyable than playing online, not that it’s more CONVENIENT

And you get both local and online with console, which is better than PC not having local. Console is (sadly) the superior choice for Diablo 4 here

The intimacy of shared screen is superior to the anti-socialness of separate screens

It’s shared screen, obviously. The PS1 version of Diablo 1 was also the superior version because it had local co-op

It’s sad how deprived PC elitists have been of superior game modes that they get so defensive over it because anything “console” scares them.

You’re taking a joke response to a troll post too seriously, Tim.

And you started all of this with the PC elitism remark of being disgusted by consoles, not knowing that MAYBE people enjoy playing multiplayer NEXT to each other in real life more than over the internet WHEN POSSIBLE

did you miss the pages immediately after where it shows PCs have their own stupid dramas so their “elitism” isn’t warranted at all or are we just gonna skip that one to justify the argument

We arent all kids anymore though. Local couch co-op doesnt work for the vast majority of people as a lot of our gaming friends are not local.

I get why they do what they do, and why it’s in character and all, but I still can’t help but wince a bit, that there are likely still actual people willing to go to such lengths for a Blizzard game…
I very much agree with the sentinent of this one: https://www.nerfnow.com/comic/3165

It’s a shame. I would really want to jump into Diablo 4, but as long as Blizz has their issues, I’m not gonna play their games. Nerfnow was spot on.

I have to work that night. Boss knows I am a Diablo player and I need the money for rent this month so I have to wait until 2am until I can log on. If my greedy landlord hadn’t upped my rent 50% in the last few years, maybe I could have taken the night off. Sad thing is 50% is on the low end in these parts lately.

Maybe consider for a sec that with inflation going nuts your landlord doesnt really want to subsidize you living there so when their costs go up so do yours especially if you dont pay your own utilities. Im a home owner and I know my insurance the rate of the last mortgage renewal municipal taxes and especially gas and electric have gone way up the last few years. And if you were under priced going into the last few years that increase could not be gouging you at all.

I’ve been living in this house for 16 years. I’ve paid this landlord over $200k in rent. I’ve been waiting for over 10 years for him to replace the front door after a thief kicked it in. He just hobbled it back together and forgot about it. In that 16 years he has finally replaced the AC after it failed every summer for 5 years. I am still waiting for him to take care of the insulation as even the new AC has a problem keeping the temp below 84 during the day. I spend $300 a month on Electric.… Read more »

I’ve had someone tell me D4 won’t have the D3 launch issues because they had a beta so they would ‘be prepared’.

I’m still amazed people don’t understand blizz doesn’t set up extra servers for any launch ever, so you will ALWAYS deal with launch issues when there isn’t enough servers to deal with the influx with players.

Yeah, that person sounds like an idiot. Any game Blizzard has released with a beta has never actually been prepared for launch day.

What would be hilarious is if on launch day nobody showed.
