It's funny how he simultaneously cheers for the demise of the auction house and then laments the lack of value found in the loot, even in loot 2.0.

You know what's a good way to make something feel valuable? Give it f*king value!

Of course everyone is going to feel like their equipment is worthless if they can't use it, because not only can they now not even sell it to another player for gold, they can't even give it away to a friend/family member because everything is account bound now.

I know it isn't a popular opinion so spare me the flames, but axing the auction house was a mistake. At the very least they should have left the in-game-gold auction house alone. Not to mention this new "everything-is-account-bound" policy is completely braindead. I used to be happy about finding a good item that wasn't of any use to me. If I couldn't use it myself, at least I could sell it to someone else or gift it. Now I can't do either.

Having said that, I have been able to play Reaper of Souls for a grand total of many three hours so far, and I have been enjoying it. But these people need to quit bitching about the game not being fun anymore after they pretty much got exactly what they asked for.

After a decade in development, Diablo 3 was a let-down. Can it be fixed? The first expansion pack admits the mistakes, killing the real-money auction house, improving loot in general, and adding a new act and character class.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one whose brain jumped immediately to this.

Still a better game than most modern SquareEnix releases.

I don't happen to currently have any friends or family that are visually impaired, but that doesn't mean the importance of a product like this is lost on me. Accessibility is extremely important, and this project will open a brand new world of entertainment and social interaction to many who would have otherwise been excluded. This is good for the industry and good for society. Show some support!

Newest game from my friends +CrashGames AZ (Patrick) and +Tory Niemann (Designer of Alien Frontiers) is now live on #Kickstarter

I played this game when it was still in it's testing phase and it was outstanding even then. Recommended highly.
