    Total War: Warhammer

    My first campaign was(is) Morathi, and it's been fun so far. I didn't get the early mobbing from Ulthuan that I'm used to from ME, maybe N'Kari keeps them busy, so I actually went frog hunting first.

    Diablo IV

    I'm not gonna claim PoE is easy on people that skim past guidance, or even those who seek it, but your example there is retarded. Capturing something is part of Einhar's intro quest, and he then asks you to visit the menagerie where the quest explains what to do with those beasts. Each master...

    That final Khorne video better be good. Slaanesh aside these have been mediocre.

    Diablo IV

    The thing with Diablo Immortal is that they utterly fail at living up to GaaS standards for mobile gacha. They're trying to get away with the lethargic PC release patterns. I doubt that flies for mobile-first users, so all they'll have left in a month or two are Blizz fanbois. Whether they learn...

    Total War: Warhammer

    Special rule to always embed her seems easy enough to solve this. It might even be a good idea to do that for all legendary heroes. Whether they remove her trait due to balance concerns can be a different topic, although I do think it can stay.

    Vortex was easy to ignore if you just wanted to sandbox.

    Total War: Warhammer

    Slaanesh is going to get gangbanged but probably likes it. I don't like the Kairos start simply because it isn't near Cathay, but maybe they put another Tzeentch lord there instead. Not a fan of Volkmar starting far away from Empire lands. The set of starting positions I am most curious about...

    Diablo Immortal

    Lull in gaming? Just because there's no title you might have waited on for years does not mean there aren't new games, let alone older games, that are better than this. Hell, D3 is better than this.

    The small print for OldSpend at least on my ciient says it lists amounts only up to 2015. If your account doesn't also show TotalSpend, you don't see the full picture.

    Diablo IV

    All signs point to innovation for D4 means simply turning the game into some kind of MMO-lite. Can't say I care that direction.

    Diablo Immortal

    Like was said above, D3 is a "classic" arpg that you play solo if you like and at your pace. DI is some Lost Ark style MMO with action combat that comes with a pile of timers, events at set hours, mandatory multiplayer, focus on pvp and so on. All to keep you on the treadmill daily and...

    PoE2 is this game.

    Diablo IV

    They did WoWify it. Not that I was all that upset even then, but for a 2012 release the game looks more dated than it should (GW2 looked much better, same year). Blood or rainbows, I hope that whatever engine they use for D4 will look at least current-gen when it comes out. If it's even a game...

    Is it sad or hilarious that 'asap' for Blizzard still means 4 more years?

    Diablo Immortal

    I don't know how much of DI is a reskin of existing Chinese products and how much was created by Blizzard, but I would not be surprised to learn that 90% of the game are existing features from one or multiple other games that their Asian partner provided. Bascially like the Lost Ark situation...

    Diablo Immortal

    If they were smart but still aiming to exploit as they are, they would probably have a "pacify the cattle" style change prepared and ready to patch before even launching the game. But then again this is Blizzard, so who knows.

    Path of Exile

    I didn't think much of the "league" before playing a while, but sentinels have kinda grown on me, and the endgame crafting variant is also nice. Not as OP as Harvest, not as tedious as Synthesis, but a good middle ground. What it is not is a pile of convoluted systems, dialogue and "character...

    Path of Exile

    I like this part of the new update patch: "The Hasted and Arcane Buffer monster modifiers will now be first encountered on level 6 monsters." Seems like they are willing to give new players a buffer until they have to drop the soap starting at Ledge now. Otherwise it has been a fun league...

    Path of Exile

    Gotta go against the grain here and say I did not like Ultimatum. It's not about the difficulty, RNG for rounds or boss encounters or risk vs reward. I just hated how the pause screen with new rewards took me out of the flow several times during each ultimatum. The 10% treatment would've been...

    Elden Ring - From Software + George RR Martin

    I guess you already know your problem, don't play on rails. I'm glad this game isn't like that (never got into previous souls games). That goes back to evading the griffon in Freeport and probably further.

    Total War: Warhammer

    I bought it for the steel box and haven't even launched it yet. I'll get my hundreds of hours of entertainment out of it in due time, but CA has a dubious "launch quality" record, so I'm fine with playing other shit and come to this later.

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    I haven't played WoW for years, but they had already made an art out of stringing you from patch to patch to keep the sub, all for meaningless chores. I doubt that has improved.

    Lost Ark Online

    That's 40 minutes plus queue, no? When Thirain had that "quick restart" in prime evening hours yesterday I didn't even try to get back in - didn't feel like it after the 3+h queue to finally play and getting hit with "back to queue lol" within the hour.

    Lost Ark Online

    This weekend was the first time I actually looked at all the available classes and what's already out in other regions, and of course the ones that interest me the most are not available. Looks I'll end up as Paladin for support and Sorc for dps for the start, then. As vanilla as it gets, but...

    Lost Ark Online

    But not like we're "working through" a WoW update for an entire year until a new patch, right? Each tier here is significant and actually takes that much time to be done with?

    XCOM 2

    You could always look for some mods. Also, while it doesn't help with the WotC stuff, even without mods you can enable the story missions leading to the alien rulers and Shen content, and let those linger until you want to add their encounters (and benefits) to the mix.

    It's made up BS anyway since she was written as a villain long before BfA. I didn't even experience that expansion since the last time I played was early Legion.

    Horizon 2: Forbidden West

    The background story and world building they've achieved with the first one was stellar. Can't wait for the pc version of the sequel. I did like the controls on pc, no complaints there. It's easy to ruin a console port and I'm kinda picky on that matter, but HZD felt just fine. I hope they...

    Blizzard dies and Bobby rides

    How would hands off be better for Blizzard? Blizzard needs serious hands on. They've taken advantage of the previous hands off by pissing away all their value from the 2000-2010 era, have lost all their talent, and are reduced to laughing stock. It would be better for talentless hacks that...

    Blizzard dies and Bobby rides

    I don't know what it's short for, Twitch and the like are just hieroglyphs to me. And that's what that is, a word for an icon that has meaning beyond the word itself. But let's not pretend we're better in this regard. I have no idea what some of the the reaction icons on this forum are meant to...

    That wasn't so much about gold/shards/whatever for upgrades, but mana management and things like that. Though I suppose that's something that is largely a thing of the past.

    I don't want to get tangled up in the cat fight, but what is skill in "modern" MMOs? Honest question, since I've not cared for that scene for a decade. Resource management, reaction times, encounter knowledge?

    Blizzard dies and Bobby rides

    What happened was that D3 was a terribly designed game that sold great because at the time people still believed Blizzard could do no wrong and you could buy any Blizzard game unseen. I don't know when you all got off the Blizz train, but for me it wasn't anything WoW-related it was their...

    Right, but they are as slow with delivering entertaining drama as they are with content. This thread was fun for a while but has slowed to a crawl. Can we fast forward to the final collapse already?

    And that's a capital crime in the circles Blizzard now courts. This change is a code red level priority to them.

    Star Citizen Online - The search for more money

    Say what you want, but their snake oil advertising is top notch. Maybe at some point a real game studio takes note of their continued money stream and actually makes a new Freelancer type game.
