Video games are fun...right?

I'll be damned if I haven't been able to get into any games lately.  D3 lost its appeal before it gained my interest, i get a beta email from blizzard every other day about Mists of Pandaria which leads me to believe they have a piss poor testing demographic which probably means they need to fix things before they put it in beta because people who test to find bugs and help the dev team have left because the alpha testing phase went oh so well.  So I'm betting on Guild Wars 2 now...not really betting, more like on my knees hoping they pull something amazing out of their rears. I dislike throwing my money at game developers that don't do something amazing, but there are only so many indie devs making things now a days with EA and Activision buying everyone and their mother's studio. Maybe a zombie apocalypse will fix it all, who knows  ;)

Diablo 3 RMAH

Blizzard Launched Diablo 3's Real money auction house a week and a half ago.  I can't say I'm impressed.  I haven't been bothered to play much since they raised the repair cost by over 10 times.  It's like they've got a financial division that actually knows how to bend people over for more money.  If people are forced to spend all
 their gold on repairs while playing in inferno, they'll have to buy gold from the auction house, and who gets a cut of that, blizzard gets a cut of that.  Oh well, I've been playing Civilization 5 lately. The new Civ5 expansion just came out, it's called "gods and generals" I find it to be a much better time sink than Diablo3 at the moment, but maybe I'll go back to D3 once I've 
become slightly less bitter. And for your viewing pleasure, here's a picture I found on the various internets that all of us that tried to play Diablo 3 on release can relate to. Error 37
