  1. It's better to get something cheap for first car as young drivers often get dings and scratches on theyr cars at least few times before they master driving and parking well enought. And as used cars are really cheap in Germany (atleast compared what you have to pay in here) it should be easy to find a decent one. That Caddy looks lot like what old people drives so I don't know how "cool" it would be drive it when you are 18 even it has that nice camping feature. I think WW golf/passat variant TDI would work better as it's better looking. Removing backseats when going on trip will clear enought space for a bed in the back. That is if she really wants a car where she is able to go to sleep.. most 18 year olds don't care much about that (or atleast I haven't met one). When thinking petrol vs diesel, I would say go for the diesel. That would mean no Toyota even it's reliable choice, but theyr diesel engines are not as good as VAG has. Consumption around 5-6L/100km while good old 1.9tdi has around 4-5L/100km. So I would say 2002-> ww golf variant (or hatchback if she likes it more) Tdi. Just looked from mobile.de for some good ones starting from 3000€.. less than 200k on the clock and full service history. Here that kind of car would cost starting from 8000€+ even if it had driven lot more (300k+). Younger people don't use same car that long so buying a new car would be total waste of money as value drops so fast and when you add some scratches and dings or even total wrecking of the car it drops even more. I wouldn't even worry about safety as ten year old cars are still "modern" and safe. Some people are afraid of repair costs on older cars.. sure there are parts that needs to be changed from time to time, but it's lot cheaper than what you loose in depreciation on a newer car. Just my 2 cents..

    Good Bye to Sacred as we used to love it.

    I think it's way too early to say anything about S3 as all I've seen is 5 pictures and lot's of rumors what is going to be. If the game doesn't have things that made sacred so great, but still has the feel of sacred, it could be fun game to play and good purchase. Just thinking as I remember when Bethesda released first info about fallout 3, most of the fallout series fans (including me) were really upset for going 3d and more action based gameplay. I really hated those first pictures about the game and had really no interest of buying it as I thouhgt they ruined everything good fallout series had earlier. But after it was released and more videos about the game came out, it started to look pretty good so I bought it.. and all the dlc's.. and new vegas... and al the dlc's to that game too. It was SO GOOD, even it is totally different than original fallout games. I must have played both games atleast 20+ times thru and all the dlc's atleast twice (they were not as good), so first impression isn't allways right. Same thing happened whit Diablo 3. D2 was a great game and first pictures and videos about d3 didn't impress me at all. It was different than original games. Still ended up buying the game after seeing it action. It was fun game (until 1.04 patch or something like that) and gave me 200+ hours of fun gaming and I think it's really good value for games nowdays. It had same problems as S3 has claimed to have. Loot system was totally broken as you really could not find anything good and when you did find something "good", it was still just crap atleast compared to the stuff you could buy from auction house for very little amount of gold. D3 doens't have any builds as you allways get all the skills at same time, so every character is the same. Gameplay couldn't be more linear. Still, it was fun game for a while.. This is just my thoughts about S3.. it could be a good game or a bad game, it's way too early to tell. Games were better in old days, but the world has changed a lot since. New players like consume games faster, whit small learning curve and really easy difficulty level. That is sad, but what can we do about it.

    Auction House prices on inferno gear

    Good thing I don't need to worrie about the prices anymore, just beaten Diablo on Inferno. It was lot easier than I thought.

    Auction House prices on inferno gear

    Yes, I have been greedy to look Strenght, vitality and all resist on every armor piece. It's so hard to balance vit and strenght when they are not on the same item and lowering my all resist is not an option. Still going to try that tip, will be lot of math work, but if can save few million there, would be great. On weapon side I haven't been so greedy anymore as realized I would never find a weapon of my dreams whit amount money I can collect. Here is something I'm looking for.. 1h weapon whit more than 900dps, +600 life on hit and more than 100 strenght and still the cheapest listed was 500k whit more than a day of AH time left so the price will go up. Next two weapons are 2m and 3,5m whit more than a day of AH time left. Not looking for anything uber gear, just something to survive on random elite packs. Or then I just have to run like a coward when I see them, like I cleared some parts of act2 when my gear wasn't good enought to handle them.
  5. Anyone else thinking those asking prices are way too much on act3/act4 inferno gear? I understand that the best sets and legendarys are realle expensive, but even the average rares are way too expensive. Prices should go down on SC as the gear never leaves from the game like they sometimes do on HC, so there should be rapid decline on prices, but haven't seen one happen. Somehow it feels like the prices has gone up. On normal and nightmare you would get good gear for 5k buyout prices and 20-50k on hell. First weapon I got for inferno cost about 200k and all the other gear around the same. That's fine, because it's still possible to get 200k pretty fast in inferno. On act2 the prices went even over 300-400k. Only way to get the stuff I needed was buy the overprices stuff whit decent bids right on the last few minutes. Now playing close to end of act3 (allready in the craters) and starting to get beaten by normal guys again and my gear is allready pretty good, so I need even better upgrades. Too bad now items cost atleast 1-8m gold per item.. so where do you expect to me get that amount of money? Just yesterday tried to buy helm that would improve around 40 strenght and 5 all resistances to my current one (which I paid less than 100k)and 300k bid was too low right when I made it. Today the price of that helm was already 880k and had 14h to go. So to upgrade my gear up to act3/act4 worthy would cost atleast 50m or more.. That would take months of farming for me. I'm lucky to get hour a day playing time. Maybe it's time wait till the prices go down and 1.0.5 comes out, maybe that'll help out. Atleast if the loot is actually starting to be any good. Sorry for the rant, but inferno has been really hard, but same time really rewarding to play. I hope fun doesn't end just because there's no way to get upgrades..
  6. Still playing solo on SC. Some time ago took every character thru normal after my monk got stuck in hell act 2, gettin killed all the time. I did find barb so much fun to play so kept on playing. Now currently at 60lvl (+2 paragon level) on inferno act 3. Still can't even get pass of the first monster packs, so back to AH improve something. Not going to do any grinding because I haven't needed to do so far and that's great. Let's see if barb can make it thru inferno. If it requires farming, not going to do it. I think it's good enought score to even get trhu act 1 and 2 on inferno. Then it's just AH time for monk to get it up to inferno, not going to even try inferno whit it. After that WD and DH thru nightmare and maybe hell, not sure yet.. after that it's time to wait for the expansion to come out.

    Auction house blues.

    I have seen this happen on some rare items and even how long you wait, it allways gives that error. Tried to put those items to auction house for 3 days and then sold them to merchant as everything else was going up for auction but not those rares.. no big deal when value would have been 2000-3000 gold.
  8. This makes me feel really incompetent now haha, I'm having a tough time on normal in some places Heh, I think it depens what character type is playing and what gear you have found more than skill. Just finished the game on normal playing as monk 17h 48min and only 3 deaths. 2 of them was in 3act just because I was rushing too much and killing monsters in wrong order. Got surrounded by new type of monsters. Last death in 4act was something I couldn't do about much. Sun shining on a LCD screen and fighting in totally darkness. So I got stuck in a corner while fighting some mini-boss. Overall the game on normal isn't that hard as even diablo only took time and 2 health potions to kill.

    Diablo 3 - Elective skill mode

    huh, this was good tip, didn't even know it's possible to do..

    Diablo 3: Legendary, Set, Unique Items

    Only legendary item found so far is this belt http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/the-witching-hour which is worse than my random rare belt. Likely to give away to a friend that plays wizard as it's useless for my monk.
  11. Hello to everyone, Haven't been on this forum for a long time and just thought maybe I could pop in and see what people think about D3. I think D3 is much better than expected. First few pictures and videos of the beta was awfull and I thought "not going to buy that game ever". Worst thing was the 3d view which I hated on Sacred 2 also and stopped playing after few hours. Good thing they fixed that and improved many things from those first looks. After playing it more than 12 hours I find it still really good game and better than I expected. Really addictive, time flies when you just try to play few minutes and realize after hour or two you are still playing it. Graphics and sounds are great and I really like all the special effects. Everything explodes or atleast does some colorfull show of lights. Really cool stuff and hard to get bored whit it. Even I find it well worth the price, it's not perfect. One of the worst features is if servers are down, you cannot play on singleplayer. Now that's madness and I fear they will change the game at some point so you need to play monthly fee for playing it.. and that's not for me. Also when you need to register the game in bnet, it's great for your security but how could you re-sale that game anymore if it's allready in your account? But those things are still something that aren't important at the moment. Mostly I fear few things that can ruin the game really fast. I hate that every character you create is same as any other same character type in the game. There is no real builds in this game and it's kinda sad as I have allways found it to be the best part of diablo 2 (and sacred). There isn't anyway to think outside of the box when skills and attributes are everytime the same. Why bother making more than one of each character type, when they are identical. Only thing you can do is put a different weapon type in it's hand. Other thing I find really good and bad at same time is auction house. I love it as finaly you can buy good gear for your toon and sell good drops for more gold. The bad part is it makes looting and giving stuff pretty pointless. I allready have found one legendary item and lot of rares, but even I find them usefull compared to the gear I'm using, I still know there is much better stuff on sale at the auction house for few thousand gold coins. Maybe that changes in higher difficulty levels and stuff starts to cost insanely much. These two things is the reason why I fear this addictive feeling wont last very long. But everything is still pretty new in the game, so lets see how long it will keep its claws on me before it's time to move on. So what's your opion? is it good as you expected? what is good about it and what's bad?
  12. Has anyone allready died in nightmare, hell or inferno and seen what happens if you die? D2 on normal was the same as D3 is, you lose some money, big deal. On nightmare and hell you started to lose xp also.
  13. Playing on softcore, as I did also in D2, even tho D3 seems really easy on normal. Just playing it first time thru "singleplayer" and then see if there's any point of playing it on hc. Level desing is really much like constant running on narrow paths and fighting, don't know if it would be even interesting at all whit more players than 2 or 3. But time will tell if the game gets better after many hours spent on it.
  14. Just came from theather and must say 3d is lot more impressing than I've seen so far. Really improves the movie experience and makes it easier to get deep into the plot and characters. But still.. it's not fully 3d, so there's still much to improve, before it feels real. But the movie.. I must say I was shocked to see K13 (allowed kids over 13 years old) on it.. as it is not movie for children. Shooting people, slowmotion death scenes, blood and lot of violence. Made me sad to think that as I was watching it. But overall the movie is okey.. maybe 3/5 stars, not going to buy it when it comes on dvd/bluray, but worth seeing ones. I bet it would been lot more interesting if they would really focused more on the negotiation than killing each other. I really didn't like the action parts that much as went to see a animation for whole family, not war movie or action movies. If I wanna see better action whit same robots, similar aircrafts, I'll put matrix revolution on my dvd-player.

    Mafia Wars

    Only a level 56 Mogul, but leveling every day. Haven't seen a energy pack for a few weeks or so.. I have some strange feeling that my mafia members can't send me one, because I'm online so often. Been adding most of my level up points to Attack and Energy, some to Defence and only few to stamina.. but I have been thinking another style as jobs tend to use a lot of energy at my level allready, so planning to put lot more to stamina as it will re-generate faster than energy.. even if it gives less experience, but then I don't have to wait allday to get the jobs done. Any good advices to give?
