Out of the Blue

BlizzCon gets underway today, so here's a shout out to all the gamers who made the sojourn to Cali to take part. This still reminds me of an idea my friends and I came up with when we were busy with Diablo III. The nature of the game requires repeatedly playing through the same segments, and our irritation over unwelcome aspects of the story eventually became so overwhelming that we vowed to attend BlizzCon as a group of Leahs. The goal would be to express our hatred of the character with the world's worst cosplay... beards, potbellies, blathering about Uncle Deckard in deep voices, the whole shebang. Not sure what point this would actually make, but it still makes me laugh to consider it. "This is about as exciting as the time Uncle Deckard and I spent the summer in Bramwell. People are quite boring there."

You know how most people have a film they consider a "guilty pleasure"? It's not an especially good film, barely worth watching once, let alone multiple times. But for some reason it strikes this particular person in just the right way, consequently they have watched it many, many times. (Grease 2 is one of mine )

That's kinda how I feel about the D3 story. Yeah, I realize it has major problems and really isn't well done... but for some reason it just doesn't bother me.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Leah was pretty bad but I always loathed Maghda in that game. A silly butterfly lady who exists only to annoy me to death with hamfisted plot exposition and Saturday morning cartoon laughter? What a compelling villain MWUA HA HA HA HA.

Blizzard's writers were never exactly stellar but things really took a nosedive in that game.

god help me, i don't know why, but i loved the lore and storyline of diablo 3 and reaper of souls, slapdash and lackadaisical as it is. there's so much revision, so many retcons, it's just college-level writing but fuck if i didn't buy the lore books and everything.

Even the military justice system thumbs their nose at the dotus.
If President Obama (the sitting President when Bin Laden was captured) or even HRC had been in office, Bowe Bergdahl would be seeing time instead of a slap on the wrist.
Donny, when are you going to learn that you reap what you sow.
Of course the tweeting national embarrassment will blame it on Hillary.

Did anyone else read this headline and think "Phrasing"?
