There are some Blizzard apologists here, don't worry about them.
oh sure, liking a game from a company that has never failed with a single release is being an "apologist", but disliking without giving any reason whatsoever is OK?
do you actually listen to yourself when you speak?!?
Woah, man - he has a point. If you're going to claim that the most successful gaming company, with legions of fans (of various dedication), is actually NOT supposed to be scorned, you need to come up with some pretty convincing arguments. I mean - if something is insanely popular, it has to be evil, right ? Common sense ;)...
I don't know if Blizzard is over for you, nor do I care
Thanks for replying anyway.
(...) these are personal opinions (...)
Oh, BELIEVE me, if there's ANYTHING I got from your post, it was that things were... "personal", if you catch my drift.
Funnily enough - I completely respect your right to have an opinion. What I disagreed with was klaymen's response to Pheace - who merely asked for your reasons. If there's anything worth a damn in a discussion, it's people WILLING TO LISTEN to what others have to say and ASKING for explanations instead of ignoring or insulting others.
Either way - I'm out. Good luck on forming a verdict on Diablo 3, everyone.
I does seem to me that it would be nice if single player didn't require that but I don't know the particulars of why they made that choice.
Because this would basically mean giving people the server-side code and the ability to host servers locally. Security, as you've pointed out, is the reason.
