Saw it on Steam and had to do a double take. Even when I opened the page I had to do another take since I saw the publisher was PlayStation Mobile Inc. and thought we got some kind of shovelware.

A very faithful adaptation of the resident evil game

I'm definitely pushing X to doubt on this based on what we've seen and read so far. The casting is beyond weird too.

Still looks better than the shit PWSA shovelled out though.

It's weird how someone who was fine with torture during the Bush administration is making a statement about people getting the boot or being disciplined because they did really shitty things.

The, in the minority, vocal apologists out there for this one, it has been quite a ride reading their takes.

What a train wreck.

I think it's a little give and take between not setting expectations high enough for the amount of players interested and relying on legacy code for critical infrastructure which combined to form this krangled mess. Both still being created by their own hands and I hope the "fix" isn't a new PoE league which moves players away from D2R.

It's one thing to come in to a hyped game and see queues but with all the other issues this game has and continues to experience along the way especially on consoles makes it really hard to give Blizzard any kind of pass where it's almost been a month and it feels like they're still spinning their tires trying to gain traction. As someone who was primarily aiming at ladder play I suspect that won't be realistic until after the US Thanksgiving in November since that'll provide a pretty solid indication in regards to whether or not their servers are ethereal and will break after being hit a bunch of times.

I wouldn't consider this to be as much of a disaster as WC3 Reforged because, in time, I'd like to think they'll eventually iron this out and the game will become playable and accessible without a cloud of doubt hanging over it.

With an MSRP of $330 it's hard to say that this brings anything to the mainstream especially when it's not only barely crawling ahead of the last generation card it's being compared to but also coming in with a $50 increase over it.

It's insane that this is where we are with 1080p gaming but I guess people will pay $500 for this card so it's not like the MSRP matters anymore anyway.

It's been a while since I looked forward to a Battlefield game. Maybe BF2? So I'll give the open beta a shot with optimism.

I started up my D2 Median XL install and it works fine Har har har

According the Median XL mod creator, D2R there will be a single player mod coming some time in 2021 inspired by Median "but better" so that's an interesting bit to look forward to.

Wasn't there a rumor that Microsoft will soon be buying another huge company? Could ActiBlizz be the target? They could be cheap right now with all the bad press.

If they did I'd imagine they'd have to trim the whole company to the bone in order to remove the rot and essentially start fresh which really wouldn't be a bad idea. Then again you have to wonder if the Blizzard name is even worth saving in regards to how radioactive they've become in the public and judicial eye.

Something something this whole company must be purged.

I liked the original enough, might grab the upgrade.

It certainly had its appeal in some ways while being janky in others. Now being an optional FPS really appeals to me but I think I'll wait for it to go on sale.

I can imagine what it's like being an employee there right now. All the incompetent overly-paid senior management staff panicking and making the employees take mandatory training week after week as to try and make themselves look good. 🤣

At this point they've probably replaced all the female staff with bowls of fruit.

No UWQHD support... In 2021. Sad. Really, really sad. This D2 remaster looked so great but during the beta they said things that made it look more and more like Warcraft 3: Refncked. Stating "We want to stay to true the original vision" makes no sense when it comes to e.g. UWQHD support. Then it is actually "We don't care and don't want to 'waste' money on the remaster."

The amount of misplaced anger and confusion surrounding the game is really something else. It's like people see the graphics and think they've rebuilt the game from the ground up when all they've done was address some minor QoL concerns and threw on an overlay with a fresh coat of paint. It's even going to include a lot of the bugs from the base game like bugging Andariel because, again, they didn't rebuild the game which is the same reason why UW breaks the game.

That's it. If you're getting mad that it doesn't support UWQHD (assuming this isn't trolling) and if you feel like the bumps D2R has had along the way makes it more and more like Reforged then that's a you problem and not the developer.

Who would have thought a game released in 2012 would be a much better game on a technical level than one released in 2000. That is almost as shocking as those who still think this isn't just a graphic layer placed on top of the base game with some minor, minor QoL changes.

It's not like I expect the second coming of Diablo 2 or a shake up of the ARPG genre but the amount of weird wishy washy complaints against the game are weird.

As far as this is concerned, it's fine. In D2 PvP there used to be far sight hacks even in closed bnet which would allow characters to off screen the fuck out of you because you could camp one foot outside of town and move the camera (not the map) around to find where the player was so I see this as an extension of that albeit to a lesser degree.

PvP is a pretty large part of the D2 community so I say good job until the hack inevitably returns.

I heard they're also in the process of making employee complaint paper trails disappear too as if that alone isn't incredibly incriminating.

Isn't there something in the way of if you destroy evidence a judge can treat you as if you're guilty?

I rather enjoyed this series. Oddly, I find I like a lot of Korean films and television series. Train to Busan is effing great!

South Korean is generally my goto when I go international especially when it comes to war and horror since they're typically done within the scope of their culture which is a nice distinction over what you find cranking out of other markets. Even their action movies can be great.

It's a very interesting place for cinema!

I remember I picked it up several times before I finally felt comfortable with the literal swing of things. Before that I really never experienced anything quite like it and it'd be pretty neat to revisit.

Imagine paying ~$500CAD for a 1080p card and realizing that's not even the marked up or scalped value which is still out of stock within seconds of being released. I can sympathize for those who have given up on PC gaming.
