In The Magazines – PCGAMER

I recently got my latest issue of PCGAMER in the mail and it was Diablo 3 & Warhammer Online! I was quite disappointed that all I read from the magazine was information I could get from the official Diablo website, but it was interesting to see their opinions on Diablo 3, I even read about a game critic that didn’t like Blizzard Games! Norman Chan, which I myself cant believe due to the fact that Blizzard is the top developer on my list (well I guess he can have his opinion) so I hope you check out this issue, I was also excited to read about Warhammer Online which is starting to look like a World Of Warcraft killer, but I guess I cant see until I play it I got to read about, this was a big part of this issue because the had gotten exclusive hands on time, this issue did not give much information and is currently only available for subscribers.

Buying Game Items – Does It Ruin The Game?

Websites like lewt.com have been selling items from Diablo 2-Runescape to now dozens of games, does this ruin the game I myself think yes, wasting hard earned cash on virtual weapons is one thing but it takes all the fun out of searching for the items, I could easily find a Griswolds armor in Diablo 2 without paying my precious four dollars that could go towards a good charity or college fund, so why is it that people keep going back to sites like these thinking they are the pros when they are not the ones spending the time finding the items, before lewt I remember when a hellfire torch charm was one of the hardest things to get in Diablo 2 expansion set, but now everyone can get one for $9.95, but if you want a good one you pay $179.95, so dont add to the problem find your items legitimately, by dungeon running and questing! The real way. Feel free to comment, or even add this to stumbleupon, better yet subscribe to our RSS feed for free!

And if you keep buying items you might as well just get this.
