    Dear Big Al,

    I like the new layout of your homepage. But unfortunately I am not able to download the files anymore, as it was possible with the old page. That is a big disadvantage to me. Can you provide in the future again download possibilities?

    Kind regards from Germany,

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for the feedback – keep it coming! I’ve updated the site so that there is a download link next to every audio player that will allow you to download the files individually.

      If you find yourself always downloading files, you should subscribe to our iTunes podcast (link is in the right hand column). If you do that, iTunes will automatically download all the files for you – very easy!

      Hopefully all will be fixed shortly,

        Hehe, that quote you’ve pulled out from the forum post is at once prttey exciting and a little disturbing to me.I really want to see more build diversity. One of the things I don’t like is a situation where certain skills are must-haves whilst everything else is garbage.The encouraging thing is that they want to make the lesser-used skills and passives more appealing through buffs, and not nerfing the so-called must-haves. Hooray!The thing that I find disquieting is the Legendary item buff. What I’m expecting is that they’ll make them too powerful and they’ll become the only items you’ll want so I am hoping against hope that I can take Mike at his word and they’ll change them in ways I probably won’t be expecting. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I don’t like Legendaries, since if they are too powerful, you get cookie cutter characters and if they’re not powerful enough no one wants to use them at all. Added to which, there is a widely held perception that Orange must equal godly (simply because of their legendary’ status) or else the game is broken. If I had my way, the color orange would be consigned to the bin, and you would get rare items occasionally spawning with flavor text on them instead.

        Feb 03, 2014 03:58 PM

        I think legendaries are pcieesrly the type of items that can be used to shake up affix restrictions. Some current example in D3 are those Lacuni bracers that have runwalk on them, or The Oculus which can spawn an increased Blizzard duration mod.One of my favorite D2 examples is Ormus’ Robes, which could spawn +3 to any specific Sorceress skill with level requirement 24 or below. Sure, it might not be as good as Chains of Honor (stupid overpowered runewords), or as generally useful as Skin of the Vipermagi or Skullder’s Ire, but it was a unique alternative.It might also be interesting to make some class-restricted items with powerful off-class stat buffs. For instance, a quiver with huge Strength and Intelligence buffs, but no Dexterity buff, could be chosen for defensive perks.I am hoping to see some proccing mods that are more reliable. As is, I don’t really see how it is possible to stack up proccing effectively (besides critical hit or bleed proccing). Having a Fear or Freezing-themed legendary item could be quite satisfying.I’ve also wondered if it is possible to extend the duration in general of crowd control skills (freezing, fearing, etc.) through an item mod. Some skills seem useless in the late game due to the extreme CC reduction of enemies, so it would be nice to be able to overcome that to some degree.

    Hi Al,
    It’s unfortunate, but iPhones don’t have Flash! I can no longer listen to your broadcasts!
    Loved your show!

    Hi Big Al and Rog, great show as always, love the new site, really appreciate your efforts to get people to understand what is really going on or at the very least get people to appreciate there is an alternate economic view. I’m based in the UK and this is one of the best ways to understand what is going on in the USA. UK government borrowing hit a record high today – so much for austerity…

    Jun 20, 2013 20:37 AM

    To be quite straight-forward, I don’t go to websites however actual companiy sites just like it and PC Gamer. I have a 11 char pass mixture of upper/lower case letters, numbers and symbols, and an authenticator that’s been in place for a very long time now and I have to input a number most of login. If I get hacked I’d know withouot a doubt that is on their end after i also run antimalware programs constantly and have 2 AV programs running antimalware in them that run frequently and update daily. And yes I am paranoid with regards to a anything that could wide open and destroy my luggage. Buy Cheap Diablo 3 Farmen

    Wow at the Lagoa Multiphysics. That is amazing. For the next creating consoles to do what not in real time will in fact be great. However, in the end even if companies have such high tech tools, it would be great should they be used well to match the game. Eg Force unleashed 1. The engine is so powerful yet what hurt the game experience could be that the engine was a bit a lot of for the consoles. They could not complete it. Eg frame rate brings about. Yet this could be due to not enough optimisation over the engine before creating the information. Who knows… Still I really adored that game, got it for your computer hoping that my i7 920 can be handle it (and it also did D). Buy Cheap Diablo Gold Guide
