The fact that they aren't interested even in the slightest to provide a stat screen or breakdown is really something which grinds my gears due to the vagueness of nearly every talent and ability.

I can't wait for the mod tools.

I feel as if, new content wise, this is the most lackluster expansion yet.

Two new land masses, yawn. Higher level, so what.

New "Allied Races", which are basically just adding new tattoos/eye colors to existing races. (And 90% of PvPer's are stuck with whatever race their class benefits most from anyways)

Artifact Necklace, simply replacing the Artifact Weapon.

Warfront, both sides PvE against each other? Well...I suppose that's new, theoretically.

Oh well, I'll buy it anyways.


I'm particularly worried about how we're going to transition back to classes without artifact weapons which often made them feel complete whereas now they're being half baked in to the always questionable talent tree or out right removed and replaced with the passive Azerite system. Not to mention the way they're meddling with the global cool down and area damage.

If they can make the Shadowmoon Priests viable for the Mag'har then they can make the Prelate/Freethinker for the Zandalari.

Otherwise I'm not terribly excited. It's stupid that they're still pushing faction warfare but I guess we need fluff expansions to pad out the bigger threats such as the inevitable return of the Lich King and the ultimate evil which is the Void.

Blizzard is good at taking concepts and breaking them down to fit a more mainstream appeal but I can't help be wonder how much further you could break the battle royale genre down especially when you have Fortnight.

It's a ton of money sitting on the table though so I'm surprised they're hesitant since they generally chase trend-setting genres even if the market is saturated.

Please roll a 75% off today, please roll a 75.

Thoughts on games the RNG discounts daily on startup?

I got 50% off but that won't help me out with getting a Soma Prime. Damn thing has been elusive as a god damn samsquanch.

AMD seems to be taking the high road on this one. AMD is getting mostly good press around this and people are questioning who's bankrolling CTS.

It's a company called Viceroy Research who are known to manipulate the stock market to short sell.

AMD confirms CTS-Labs exploits that if you do everything stupendously wrong then bad things will happen to your system.

it's like judging new york city based on Staten Island.

But it's a water-front property so it has that going for it...

Realistically how well do financial sanctions work? Couldn't you just divert money to a shell organization which then transfers it to the account of a Rusty Shackleford?

The loot system sucked and wailing on nothing but rats gets old fast. Too bad because the ambiance and maps were off the hook. Yeah, I'll give 2 a whirl when it hits a deep discount.


The introduction of Chaos has really given this game what it needed in regards to diversity. It doesn't sound like much but I never really feel bored when it comes to carving through map after map as I did with V1 and the maps are as phenomenal as they are brutal. The loot boxes leave a little to be desired in regards to what you get but the crafting system is somewhat in place in the event that RNG is not in your favor but could be given a second pass.

All in all I'd say this is definitely worth the price of admission especially for $30 but I hope they find time to improve on the UI and details of the talents and stats which are otherwise extremely vague.

Something about GD always rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know if it's the lack of randomly generated content or how the community is fairly small but I can never play it for more than a dozen or so levels before my interests wither away even if I want to play an ARPG.

David Ogden Stiers already looked quite old back then so MFW I read that he only died yesterday at 75. Really shitty though. It's hard watching the episodes knowing half the cast is gone...

Had my eye on this for a while and looks like a lot of fun. It's only $28CAD on Steam to boot. I figure after I run out of hype with the new POE league and wander through the End Time this'll be next on my list.

The folks who are behind this have a pretty great track record for actually releasing their products rather than keep them hung up in early access for eternity.
