News Comments > Blizzard Reveals "Unannounced Diablo Project"
20. Re: Blizzard Reveals Jun 6, 2018, 09:34 Rhett
 
A lot of stuff in Diablo 3 is now archaic and feels dated... it really needs a new sequel. I know Diablo 2 HD is most likely coming out, wonder if this is that or not.

News Comments > Warhammer: Chaosbane Announced

I really wanted to like Inquisitor, and I was really hoping they'd polish it up for release (they said something like "no more patches until release" since their version and the EA version were getting further apart), but I just tried it recently.. It's so clunky and unrewarding-feeling.

Very much like a game that would have done well in the earlier 2000s, but now... I don't know. Hopefully it gets polished up a bit, just doesn't sound like much will change when it comes out on the 5th.

This one's being done exclusively through Blizzard's launcher, so I imagine this could be their first attempt in a long while to actually put out a not-completely-half-assed PC port...

Guess we'll see...

The Battle Royale map looked horrendously small though.

If it was claiming to be 100% historically accurate, I would care... but it's not. Just looking at the trailer's thumbnail you can tell it's not taking itself seriously.

There are hardcore realism games like Squad, Post Scriptum and ARMA, and then there's Battlefield and Call of Duty, which pander to sales. Appreciation for historically accurate games has gone down the drain, because there's so little to work with (from our perspective at least - how many times do we have to take back France from the Nazis?!).

It's not a political statement, it's a game about shooting other people and having fun. With WW2 weapons. There are many things to be concerned about in today's world and this game is not one of them, lol.

It was super tedious last time I played it, just wailing on monsters and hoping to hit the right part to knock it off (need certain parts for crafting), or other people wouldn't cooperate...

And it was pretty linear in terms of crafting, too.

This is just them keeping up with Call of Doody, since the last one was WW2... but we're due for a future Battlefield already.. c'mon...

Put a couple hours into it, reminds me of Astroneer without the deformation, and more LEGO-vehicle-like. Pretty fun, but tedious constantly modifying and rebuilding vehicles. I do see the appeal though.

News Comments > Diablo III Season 13 Ends Soon
6. Re: Diablo III Season 13 Ends Soon May 20, 2018, 21:37 Rhett
 
They're just keeping this poor bastard on life support... No new decent rewards in ages (especially transmogs). Really need some major new content or a D4 at this point!

And yeah, it's pretty nice and fluid combat but it's got some archaic functionality that needs updating too. I love Grim Dawn for example, but it takes quite a bit of effort to figure out and work out a build, since it's all item-based. Never got into Path of Exile though. D3's just fun to pick up since it's not too hard to optimize builds.

Interested in the game, but eh...

I think the key is that they aren't rushed and are given a fairly lenient time between seasons. At least I hope that's the case. I could easily see some asshole higher-up wanting to milk it.

It's a really fun game. I was actually convinced to buy it after, er, "trying" it. A lot of the first game, but who can say no to killing more orcs? Or making orcs kill other orcs?

Steam sale in June, too.

I might be tempted to try one on a free weekend if the optimization wasn't trash, and it wasn't always filled with cheaters. Every PC CoD, as far as I can tell, just gets overrun with cheaters and they don't even care.

I mean, that'd be nice.. but clearly there's way too much money to be made on pointless cosmetics. Greed wins in our society.

I'd rather they completely disable the market, but oh well.. I did make at least $80 just selling crap on there so I can't complain too much, but man are they shitting out new skins and crates like it's nobody's business.

I think some of the PVP is F2P, but the campaign/story is locked behind a pay wall, as well as there's still "operations" DLC which I never got, and surprisingly never got gifted to previous owners... Oh well.

I installed it recently, but couldn't really bring myself to play it again.

Well it looks like they're trying to fix that, and it sounds like they could go in many different directions with it. I'm hoping for some PVE content/campaign/story/whatsit.

Also they're up to 79 heroes. God damn that's a lot of heroes. And so many more they can pull from. Crazy.

Yeah, lots to explore, lots to craft, lots of labor to do. Haha.

The cannibals get pretty nutty too, if you really piss them off. Though there's many nuanced ways to manipulate them too. Really curious to dive back into this, when I can get the co-op group to do so.

I tried it 4 hours after it went up, got a key just a little bit ago.

Seems to be, basically, the $5 retail version?
