    Emet and the Crystal Exarch are both really good in Shadowbringers. Cid during the fucking Praetorium is shockingly awful.

    I heard if you change to Japanese voices, the cutscenes are shorter and you can kill the bosses / trash while the english people are still watching. Haven't tested it though.

    Blizzard is Dying

    You just have a different line for where 'old blizzard' is. Blizzard saw the organic growth of SC esports, the trading community of D2 and the success of their 'polish a genre' that Warcraft/WoW had and they decided to formalize that as a company identity. They overdid it after that. I was there...

    Blizzard is Dying

    Overwatch has always represented Nu-Blizzard with it's focus on a community college admissions pamphlet cast of characters. It came out in the peak of 'one game per genre with a focus on esports' era of Blizzard that happened post WoWs ridiculous success. Old blizzard is CRT monitors, pizza...

    Asmond is a better story than Rich. Rich was easily convinced. Asmondgold represents the very real contingent of westerners who can't get over the 'weeb aesthetic' and enjoy the game. Asmon was convinced to play and eventually fell to the dark side. I'm sure it's not what vg EB posters would...

    It's refreshing how the devs are pretty frank and open with the community. At this point in the Live Letter, YoshiP is discussing why they didn't move to the cloud to solve their server issues and is surprisingly candid/open.

    After the whole Tipper Gore PC era, there was significant push-back by entertainment. Things like Politically Incorrect and Tough Crowd came out after that. This time, it feels like tptb are all in on it.

    Reminds me of when I went to my buddy's house and he had a mid 20s hunter in vanilla wow that he had only ever meleed on. As for ilvl, is there really any reason to be pushing ilvl prior to EW release? Once you have enough ilvl to unlock all the raids / MSQ through to the end that is. I made...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    That's the WoW patch cycle. 1. Play a lot and stay relevant. 2. "Homework" slowly drifts later and later in the week. 3. Log in Monday night to get everything done before reset. 4. Miss a week and never log in again.
