Diablo III in Video Gaming Posted May 27, 2012 Reading this made me want to play the game in Hardcore mode. Then again, most of my deaths come from lag spikes.. That makes it sound to me why Eve Online is so attractive. While the death there isnt so perma, if you haven't updated your clone or whatever, you *could* in theory be set back two weeks of skills, plus you then have to go and buy all your shit again with that money you worked so hard to earn. Some people have cash coming out of their ears, but I'm am constantly a poor lad, so losing that 200 mill ship that has taken countless hours to earn, is a bad kick in the teeth. Or knife in the guts. So every fight leaves you needing to go and sit down for a while with a cup of sweet tea. Anyway, I have only a 33 WD, so am not sure he's ready to take on the HC enemies. Will try a bit more of nightmare first. But yes, I am keen to try it.
