Metacritic deleting Diablo negative comments

Literally with every refresh right now with the onslaught of pissed off error 37 customers.

Check it out for yourself.

That page is melting down as we speak and proof incarnate that Metacritic is in fact a bought mouthpiece. I shit you not. It's crazy what's going on right now:

Damnit, /v/ just caught wind of what's going on. The smell of fresh blood attracted the trolls. Ahh well, it was interesting while it lasted.

For the record this is what was going on before the raid, as ActiBlizzard will probably use this as an excuse to cover their incompetence:






Me, personally, I'd give it a 3.7.

I read this on Amazon:

When you launch the game you get an error 37 and Blizzard says that you just need to keep trying...

hard to accurately rate a game when youre unable to play it due to having to have an internet connection and logging into an authentication server thats crashed for a *single player game*. people have been predicting this problem since it was announced a while back. poor form blizzard, very bad choice.
So I assume the problem stems from the fact that you can only play the single player game online and Blizzard's servers weren't ready for all the traffic?

I don't really care about the 'always on' DRM, but what about modding? According to this article no one can mod anything themselves?

What's next, charging people $15 a month just to use Battle.net?

I plan on "reviewing" this disastrous mess of a game some day, but here's yet another thing to be pissed/worry about:

Quote:
Last week Blizzard released the highly-anticipated, long-awaited action-RPG game Diablo 3 for the PC. The launch was littered with problems ranging from connection issues to a bug that kicked users out of the game for donning a shield. Blizzard quickly offered an apology and thanks to its customers for their patience and tolerance, closing a rough week.

However the second week of Diablo 3's market presence has seemingly started off with a similar controversial bang. Numerous threads are now filling the Diablo 3 forums reporting that accounts have been hacked. Thieves are reportedly taking character items and liquidating gold, leading to a possible massacre once the real-world auction house opens its doors next week.

"I had my Diablo 3 account hacked today," states one player in this thread. "All my items gone and gold liquidated. Blizzard rolled it back to where I was a day and a half before. Meaning I lost around 20 hours of game time play. My password is a random combination of capitalized and uncapitalized letters, numbers, and special characters. My security question answer is also unknowable by anyone but me."

In this thread, a player with a hacked account was flamed for not using an authenticator to secure his virtual goods. However in this thread, a player claims he used an authenticator and still saw his account drained of gold and goods. In the same thread, another player even figured out who actually hacked into his account.

"The hacker's is luckllezz (George Melchers) the guy added me as a friend before I logged back in," writes iMax. "I joined his game and watched as they cleaned out 30+ players, one after another. I reported all this to Blizzard with little to no response, now I have a level 57 worthless and not able to progress. Couple this with the server issues that happened earlier, my Diablo 3 experience is going peachy!"

Another thread on the Diablo 3 forums not only reveals that a hacker somehow appeared on a player's friend list, but the player took screenshots of an actual hacking of a Level 52 Witch Doctor in progress. "I think people were hacked a while ago and hackers were just waiting for Diablo's release before they set 'Order 66' into motion," another player muses, referring to Star Wars Episode III.

Finally, this thread suggests that a Diablo 3 exploit allows session hijacking. "You will lose connection to the game," reports Frobozz as he describes what will happen when the account is hijacked. "This can result in just the 'Lost connection to server' error message or no message at all."

"A good sign that the connection loss is a hijack attempt and not just a server error is if you are also having trouble surfing the web (i.e. slow connections, or can't load pages)," he continues. "People are reporting that their IP is getting DDOSed to prevent them from relogging into Diablo 3 and thus getting a new session and stopping the attack."

So far Blizzard hasn't issued a statement through the PR channels or via the forums, so stay tuned.

Blizzard said that they are going to add real money to the auction house in the "near future" so I honestly wouldn't hold my breath on that one.

At the rate Blizzard gets things done, I'd be surprised if Heart of the Swarm even comes out this year, either.

Diablo 3 was a complete letdown. I would have liked to see them push the envelope in the top-down rpg category but its just the same old shit with a slight graphical facelift. I have owned D3 for a couple months now, and played it for about a half hour before I had the urge to claw my eyeballs out, and haven't touched it since. Thank the dark gods below that I got this piece of shit game for free, even if I had to pay for a year of another piece of shit game to get it free. If you are thinking of buying D3, do yourself a favor and spend your money on bath salts, as chewing the faces off of homeless people and a subsequent life sentence will be more enjoyable than the latest 'epic' adventure in the Diablo universe.
