They don't need to create DLC when they likely already have several instalments being put together behind the scenes for annual releases with plans to kill the online functionality for each new release as they do with their sports franchise

And here I thought Operation Raccoon City was the worst-received Resident Evil in living memory. I realize RE6 didn't exactly sell like hotcakes, but it shouldn't have spelled the end of core-game RE development; it wasn't THAT bad.

I always felt that RE6 was better than 4 and 5. It at least had elements which reminded me of the golden age in spite of having an incredibly convoluted story design. Having not played O:RC though, I heard it was a bust which RE is not exactly unfamiliar with and can join the Survivor series and Outbreak dumpster club.

You know what would have been better? An actual, story-driven game from the perspective of an Umbrella soldier. I'm not talking about shitface Carlos from RE3 but Mr. Death himself. He is way, way overdue for a proper follow-up story and they could build it around the events which lead up to the downfall of Umbrella rather than the hand-waving bullshit they used in the RE4 introduction to say it already broke up.

Was a great game, sure, but it was riddled with bugs and an awful internet structure. Still, I devoted a lot of time between Giants and Sacrifice.

If anything, Sacrifice needs a successor more than Giants.

Three months in to HFC and they're just now addressing the issues with smaller raid sizes for Archimonde? Ouch.

20 man tuning or bust.

Huh, just checked Steam and noticed the pre-purchase for XCOM 2 is $80CDN. This reminds me of when I got my first PC which came with a demo of SIN and wanted to buy it so I went to Zellers and saw it had a $80 price tag on it.

Right in the nostalgia.

Yeah, I'd really like to know whom it was that they approached. I'm sure it'll leak somewhere though.

Yeah, the changes to that set should make an interesting playstyle although It seems like it'd needs more to compete on the AoE front. You used to be able to build a pretty tanky melee DH but it was the most boring and inefficient playstyle I ever tried. 3.4 will be interesting to see how they rework the other mentioned sets.

As for the Furnace, yeah, I can see your point. I built a Shenlong Monk and used the Flying Dragon Daibo since APS scales so well with it and Uliana's set. For WD, Going Carnevil with a Dagger of Darts and a Starmetal would be pretty insane.

Meanwhile, I found a F+R with absolutely awful rolls (neither with cc/chd together) this morning and yet my UE DH is getting crits in the area of 1 - 3 billion depending on whether or not Convention of Elements is up for Fire. I'll likely net an extra 10 GR levels and now every ring that drops which isn't a F or R is garbage regardless of how perfect their rolls are.

They need to break down the importance of set items and several legendaries so they aren't the default option to hold certain slots hostage even when more choice is introduced. Now, instead of there being a single set of mandatory items, there are two and once you have those pieces within a week, it's the exact song and dance as before.

A good place to start would be the removal of The Furnace and Focus + Restraint as well as every legendary item which has a unique feature given orange text (Stone of Jordan's % damage or elite damage and Heart Slaughter's physical damage modifiers for example) to be Cubed.

They could bring back Runewords to shift attention away from the armored six set or gtfo mentality.

This is why Hollywood can't win.

They could win by creating a Netflix-type service for movies as they release to theatre based on either a monthly or as-you-watch pricing structure.

Twitchtalk really annoys me which is why I usually stay away from a lot of gaming streamers. Hearing 'get rekt' or 'RIP' twenty times a minute is just aggravating. Not all do it but those who do need to be hit in the face with a dictionary and thesaurus.

A lot of adds already get through Adblock Plus it seems. Also coming across a lot of content restricting the view until after you disable it.

Yeah, porn. You wanna fight about it?

ED was practically built on paying a premium+ price tag to get in to the beta followed by a 70$ price tag before hitting Steam so it shouldn't be a surprise that their expansion pricing is on the high end too.

I'm still convinced that Warlords of Draenor is the worst expansion in history as far as cost to content is concerned. $50 for 50% less content than any previous expansion is just garbage.
