Looks cool, but Windows 10 store, so no thanks. Not interested in encouraging limited app gardens.

Beyond some cool lighting effects, what else does this offer?

Bug fixes, mod support(including 3d models), new terrain system, grass, higher view distance, improved interface, etc. There's already a bunch of mods that improve the textures and add 3d models for almost every object. If this ever gets done, one could release a much improved Daggerfall.

I've been watching this from a distance and it seems pretty good. I'm not sure I see it being finished though.

Sounds odd but that actually seems like it could be pretty fun. Provided he has his own unique style and isn't just a psuedo copy of another character's template.

There's a video of gameplay out. He seems to use a fighting style that is pretty close to what's in the Witcher games. He looks pretty faithful and has the voice actor. I feel like there's definitely something off about his look, but it's no big deal.

So why use this instead of Unity or UE4?

I am asking honestly here, what's the point of a CPU engine?

The advantage of the build engine is that it's much easier to use and you really don't need any modeling experience to make great levels. I absolutely love the Build engine, but I still think that if you're going to make a shooter, you should use Unreal or Unity. Learning these new engines will be much more useful in the long term and they have infinitely more features. I'm not sure who the Build2 engine is for. The charm of the Build engine was the crisp pixelated sprites and textures. This new engine is blurry and is trying to emulate newer 3D engines that already do it better. But I have no idea, maybe the right person can make an amazing game with it.

...The Division.

Mostly joking, I only played Hellgate:London briefly during a beta or alpha period, although one of my coop buddies did get suckered into buying the lifetime Hellgate pass, or whatever it's called. He's playing The Division with me these days, I should probably get his opinion on the two games, if he can remember enough about Hellgate.

That said, I'm sure Blizzard will do an HD conversion of Diablo 2 eventually, just to make a quick 500 million for themselves.

The Division is an ARPG, so you can compare them, but the Division's systems are extremely simple compared to Hellgate's.

I absolutely love Hellgate. It's by far my favorite Diablo clone ever. I don't understand how someone could hate it. Perhaps it was because it was hyped too much or it was too buggy on launch.

So I never played it 4 months after release because it was a horrible horrible buggy mess. Monsters would get stuck in spots and your weapons wouldn't register hits. I remember the chat interface for online was like an after thought and the online portion was completely unplayable due to horrible servers.

How long did you play it for?

I played every iteration over a period of years. I couldn't really tell you how much time I put in, but it's a lot. I never had the weapons not registering hits problem, but the game sure had a lot of bugs. That wasn't a problem for me though, just like Skyrim's infinite bugs aren't a problem for most people. You could say that Skyrim is an open world, so it justifies the bugs, but I think that Hellgate also justified them. It had full multiplayer, very complex loot and skill systems, rooms filled with more monsters than probably any fps ever and had all that run at acceptable performances.

There's just never been another FPS ARPG with this level of complexity and I doubt it'll ever happen again.

Never played Hellgate... I'd like to try it now to see what the lack of fuss was about.

So, are you deleting your items, your currency, and your characters at the end of each league?

I actually do this. I can't even remember the last time I stepped foot in Standard because I don't see the point. This is just how I feel though as I know standard is still pretty popular especially among mirror services and whatnot.
Okay, color me impressed -- it would be interesting to know what portion of the game population does what you do. While I understand there is some additional fun in starting over with new game updates it's all the "little" stuff, like leveling the Masters, which annoys me. But hey, different strokes for different folks. If you are having fun that's all that matters, right? Power to the people!

I definitely think that if you're playing normal, you're in the minority.

Yeah, the beast thing seems like a chore, but maybe it's cool. I gotta say, it feels like this update came too soon. I just got a character to start doing the harder end game content and now I have to scrap him for the next league.

It's not like you're forced to start over... Characters move to standard... The biggest change in Standard is currency values... And a ton more access to uniques, legacy and new.

Not much interesting my in this league... Hard to top the addition of 6 acts worth of content though : )

What? Why would you play standard when you can play a much more interesting league? This isn't a question.

I was kinda looking forward to this event, but it looks really, really boring. I expected something better than a crappy L4D ripoff.

Though I do like the way they're handling games now. I've seen some real improvements, especially to The Division.

I dunno, I'm actually really impressed by their L4D ripoff. Wasn't expecting something that good. I just don't get why it's only available for a couple of weeks. Also, I wish they'd do an actual coop campaign. I would help in silencing those who hate R6 because it's not a real Rainbow Six game.

I like the extra information, but like most people, I hate the fact that the game boxes are huge. You have to scroll infinitely to get through the wishlist. Displaying only a handful of items from a list on screen at once is a cancer in the UI world.
