It's All About You: DennyCrane
StrafeRight Profile image

DennyCrane's stepped up to the interview chair for this month's spotlight on forum members.

Playing on the strafeRight CS:S Office server brought DennyCrane to sR towards the end of 2005, but did you know who was on the server along with DennyCrane?

Learn about the first video game that DennyCrane played, his most memorable moment (anyone know who did the banning?) and who DennyCrane would choose to be stuck in a lift with.

Have a read in our All About You blog post.
If you're interested in answering the questions, just pm MisterX or Ohmigosh.

Diablo 3 Open Beta Weekend

So this weekend was the Diablo 3 beta, and some of us actually made it through the patch issues and onto the beta. Below is a selection of observations from the thread.

"using a female monk. talks like Ivana Humpalot. kicks major ass" "I've seen more than enough - I'm excited as hell to grab this. Stomping on the hordes feels GOOD"

"It's a fun game, no doubt, but it's still a dungeon crawler." "don't know if it's just the beta... but I wasn't really all that impressed." "think the co-op play is probably the differentiator, but it's still just a dungeon crawler"

"the graphics were unremarkable" "this was a limited beta where you play like 1% of the actual game"

One of the sR community has been in the beta for about 6 months, check out the post to see Rage's opinion. What do you think?
