With all the changes to the classes this game is getting to be more fun to play..which is good because previous to these changes the highlight of the game was the character creator. It was all downhill from there.

This reminds me that I still need to play the first.

My expectations are high given the high praise from every single gamer friend I have. Sounds like the second game has turned out pretty well too.

When I paid for the game all I cared about was single player. Had the multiplayer been good I would have been in a real pickle because looking back through my post history it appears I was pretty sold on Overwatch for my multiplayer fix.

So than Bethesda, a company with a pretty so-so if not outright crappy history when it comes to DLC, gives me the full single player game I lved and the only thing people have to pay more is more multiplayer stuff I didn't care about in this game.

As far as I am concerned, they handled it perfectly. Now the community needs to do the rest. Kinda like every other Bethesda game it seems.

Anybody tried Shadow Tactics:BofS? I just learned of it yesterday, watched some videos...looks right up my alley. I added it to my Steam wishlist to remind myself that I was interested later if I work the backlog down a bit. That said, if anybody has actually played it I would love to read your thoughts on it.

The psychology behind some of the most successful games and even whole genres is fascinating, even if it makes you a little uncomfortable or even upset to think that your "want" to keep playing is actually something that is predictably and intentionally generated.

You and me see eye to eye on that. I would rank it up there with my all time favorite, the Genesis, as well. I am going to get a Pro eventually. Nothing out there I am willing to upgrade for yet but it's only a matter of time. The fighting and sports games I play primarily on console will probably all have "Pro Only" upgrades as early as next year. I like the concept of VR but not enough to buy into it on console yet. My first true home VR system will be on a PC and I haven't done that yet so that option doesn't sell me on a console upgrade.

Its about the games and not much more at this point. My relationship with Sony as a fanboy is solid, but we have an open relationship. They screw me regularly, but I have gaming affairs on other platforms all the time. It's sort of unspoken agreement.

My motherboard on my gaming rig has died.

I am now using a machine that runs on Vista....for basically everything.

My family is taking bets on how long I will will endure before I go buy a new motherboard..if not a new rig all together.

But it would it really be any different if it was a Samsung or an LG or just about anybody else? I really dislike Apple, but that dislike has pretty much spread to the entire cell phone industry at this point. LG, Samsung, Sony....they would all do the same shitty things. They have and they do.

The whole cell phone industry is a mess atm.

No I don't think Blizzard games go on sale too often

not until all the expansions and patches are done, the battle chest is published, and the sequel is released...at least it seems that way.

My wife and I tried to vote by mail this year. First time I had done anything like it since I was living outside of the country. My ballot was brought to me by a concerned neighbor when he found it at the bottom of a rain gutter along our street. Soaked and ruined, I now have to take it to the polling station so I can do a provisional ballot. My wife is in the same spot since hers never actually showed up at all and here in California they have been telling us "don't worry about delays, mail in ballot will arrive on time!" instead of actually taking any reports of delays seriously.

Knowing your ballot won't be counted for, in some cases, two weeks...takes a bit out of it. I wish my mail in ballot experience was as good as so many others have said.

FYI, I have talked to at least 20 of my fellow neighbors at a recent home owners association meeting...they also requested mail in ballots and they didn't get them either. We live in a district that has Democrat local politics but somehow the Reps keep getting the state level spots and the important bills end up with whatever the Reps wanted. When I say that my neighbors are now ready to believe just about any conspiracy theory regarding Republican gerrymandering..I mean it. I am not sure I buy into that but clearly someone screwed up somewhere or someone intentionally went around trashing ballots in mailboxes. For being the leaders of the free world, this country really has a fucked up voting system.

This really ought to be a National Holiday by now...if nothing else. Make the process the focus of the entire country for one day. It seems like it's important enough for that. Not just to us as citizens but to the world as a whole.

I was expecting an announcement of... something significantly more substantial, I think that's all I'm saying. Warcraft 4, maybe a resurrected Starcraft: Ghost, a new MMO, something more than "here's new stuff for things you already know about" and fairly lackluster at that. But maybe it's just not for me anymore, and that's fair.

I think it was a fair expectation to have given Blizzard's own release schedule over some time. I mean, the last 3 years alone show a pretty obvious pattern: Overwatch came out in May of this year, HotS was June of 2015, and Hearthstone was March of 2014. It isn't like the precedent for your expectations had not already been set by Blizzard itself to quite some degree. Hoping for a new title in 2017 seemed reasonable given history.

This would be a good time to admit that I have a very corny gamer dream regarding Overwatch so maybe I am a bit forgiving right now. Overwatch, as it stands today, is a pretty fun shooter to me and I love how the development of the game has gone since launch and how it seems to be going forward. The dream is this: If Blizzard made a new MMO that took place in the Overwatch world I would be all about it. In my head, and thus the dream, the Overwatch MMO has to be an action based combat system rather than a tab-select system. The character creator has to be extensive as well so that the vast majority of players can be as individual as the characters of the current Overwatch game. TERA's combat, City of Heroes character creation in terms of texture options and power/class types system, Black Desert's character creation model/mesh manipulation, and than the MMO framework and structure that WoW has taught Blizzard to create after so many years of development. Give it a single player campaign system and 100% game voice acting like SWTOR and holy hell...I might not ever leave my house.

Dreams are great, doubt anything like it will happen though. My tastes in MMO features and design don't seem to jive with even a small minority let alone the majority.

will remake Diablo 1 inside Diablo 3

Instead just go play Diablo Belzebub if you want to re/play Diablo 1. Played it earlier this year and it was a lot of fun.


Thanks for this link. I am looking forward to giving it a go.
