Title: Drozz came back....
Post by: Drozz on November 05, 2018, 01:48:01 PM
Holy spit! This thing is still going on? And alot of the people from 15 years ago are still here!!! Wild!

Just checking in. Some heat arose from some of my old D2 buddies when I tagged them in a fb post about being excited for Diablo Immortal. Apparently that is taboo and no one is allowed to be excited about Diablo on mobile.

Ok, so since I left you guys all those years ago, I don't do PC gaming anymore. When I left all those years ago, it was to focus on my writing. Well, that never panned out, so I started playing games on my phone. It's easier, and I can still chat with my wife and kids, instead of being on the computer and ignoring everyone. That won't fly in my house.

So, I'm checking in, and yes, I'm excited for a Diablo game on mobile. Let the chairs fly!

Hey Drozz...good of you to swing by.

I'm glad you are happy for the mobile game.  Always knew you were nuts.  ;)

Honestly I don't think it is awful that Diablo is coming out on mobile.  I do think Blizzard is on crack thinking that their core base would be happy about it.  They were obviously freebasing heroin thinking that they could tell us that there was exciting Diablo reveals coming during BlizzCon and then tells us it was all about Mobile Diablo.

Honestly, if they hadn't said anything, and then reveled the mobile game, it still would have gotten panned but there wouldn't be this mass of hatred spewing at them.

D2: Lod and Diablo 1 were the best Diablo games.  Then D3 came out and is a pretty fun game.  But it is a dumb down version of the game, as compared to D2.  A lot of those changes that were for the worse, seemed to have been done to support consoles.  And now they are coming out with an even 'lighter' version of Diablo.  It is no wonder that core Diablo players blew their stack with the news.

How Blizzard didn't see this coming is shocking.

Good to see you again Drozz!  I get that some people move on from gaming on actual computers you can't use while sitting on the toilet, or while your wife drives the car, but I can play mobile games and still ignore everyone if I'm not careful, or get those around me annoyed.  It depends when you chose to be game on your phone.  Are you able to pause or stop gaming at a moment?  I have some games that must be Multiplayer and if you leave you instantly lose some in game currency.

Lots of unknowns in Diablo on mobile.  I'm guessing if you just shut down the app, they will have a countdown, so monsters will keep attacking you for 10 seconds, or its a get out of jail free card.  That means coming back could mean death for the character.

What is your phone of choice Drozz?  For now I have no hype, I've signed up to have a look at it, but reserve the right to delete it and never come back.  Mobile games are normally play once and delete, or play for a long time.   Its almost a forgone conclusion there will be some annoying micro transactions in there, and the path of not using them will be painful

I think this topic should probably be in the lounge .. very controversial.

Man, this thing with answering trivia questions every time I want to post something. I don't know some of these games. Good thing for google.

It's great seeing these responses. Seeing the user names again just makes me smile.

I have a Samsung 8 phone. I have been heavily addicted to Summoners War for three years. It's like Hearthstone/Pokemon. It is p2p p2w if you want to be a top player. I have been f2p from the start and still get a lot out of it. It is very f2p friendly, as long as you don't want to be the top player. That never mattered to me. If Diablo Immortal offers a similar f2p treatment, then I'm sure I'll get into it.

The controls are what worries me. Movement and firing have been awkward at best in the mobile games I have tried. I can't imagine trying to look past my thumbs and trying to figure out movement would be a pleasant experience.

You only have to do that for the first... couple... posts. We had a bot problem... This was the solution.

Always and forever! And really excited about this team this season.

I would make fun of you for that except I'm a Jets fan.

That's better than being a Raiders fan this year. I know the Bears benefitted greatly, but sheesh!

Yeah...I am in the Bay area and the Raider fans have been screwed over royally.  Between the team moving and Gruden deciding to do a rebuild during the last two years they are in Oakland, it is bad.  Really bad.

This is a team that is just shitting on their fan base.  I really don't like the Raiders but I feel bad for their fans.

I'm still a Packers fan.  They're not having a very good year, although they did beat the Bears which is pretty awesome.

The moment I heard Chucky was going back, I knew they were going to suck. What an overrated POS.

Packer fans are ok for the most part. And this year is the turnaround. They saw that in the first game. If not for Rodgers magic, it's a blowout. Starting in December and for many years to come, da Bears gain the upper hand again.

Um, what? I hope you're not expecting that from me. I didn't vote for the criminal or the clown. I voted third party in that joke of an election.

I know Trump is a big guy (no matter what his doctor says), but he's not two guys! There was also a democratic candidate in 2016...
