Actually I do think I remember you randomly crashing out of games as your laptop overheated the sun.

Yeah I heard this rumour the day of "multiple projects".  But Sam, did you burn out of D3? Or did you just not like playing it on a pc?  Do you want to play as you take a dump etc?

Diablo 3 was the most hyped Diablo3 ever, especially with the time gap compared to the D1 to D2 gap.  The amount of time before people realised that the emporer Diablo had no clothes varied.  RoS did help to change things

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

30% seems an industry standard. Eg apple. I think the deva are just big enough they can just force their fans to do what they want

Its nice to have an annoucement that SOMETHING is coming.  However my hype and excitement are bottomed out now. 

Diablo4 will be inevitable, but if you look at D3, it will most likely be years off.  They should be better at launches .. and Jay Wilson is long gone ..
Diablo2 remaster is likely.  Looking at what they did with Starcraft, the graphics got tweaked, a few quality of life things (outside the gameplay).  However bugs and annoying AI remained as it was.  Imagine all the broken Diablo2 skills ... would remain broken.

I've heard people talk about something on mobile.  Hearthstone has given them some ideas about this.  The fact most mobile things are free to play and then try to nickel and dime you for more than a full game if you let them bugs me.    Who knows, there are plenty of D3 type clones already on mobile.

Something different?  Who knows?  Tell me when there is a video of something to watch and I'll see if the pictures and sound can get me excited.

Well I read that Fallout 76 will be on the Bethesda Launcher, not on Steam.  Fortnite apparently has done well,  I hear CoD 4 will be Battlenet only etc.  I can understand a few reasons for this but it is a bit frustrating too.

I've also read talk about when gaming moves to a Netflix type model, pay a monthly subscription(s) and have a licence to play game(s) for that month vs just buying it.  Might be interesting for some, but at times, knowing its on your account and they can't remove it is nice as well!

Pre sequel made by aussies.  I found of all the Borderlands games that after finishing, and I went for 100% so all the areas, side quests etc, that there was no way in hell I could do a 2nd character beyond the minimum i needed for achievements. 

I think they need some armour type loot, sure guns are good, but how often do you really get upgrades?

The Aussie accent grates for me among things. They say borderlands one may be remastered for newer consoles. But it works fine on pc.

I just went to Urban Dictionary and learnt a new term!

Now my dilemma, do I follow the meme and do some ignoring?

However yes I'd say speedrunning has changed a whole bunch.  I'm sure each community has run their games for as long as they can, and have compared highlights, but from the mid 2000s, various sites have allowed gaming on any and all plaforms to contribute together.  Not being fractured has let things grow and helped the Awesome Games Done Quick and others take off.  I just see the Europeans have their own events too!

When it was just the Quake community only, you I knew ALL the regular names, talked to most of them.  The minute it expanded, there were 98% of games I'd never heard of, people I'd never heard of and types of goals that were different.  It was great to browse other games I knew. At times you'd take a punt on something else, but it generally helps to understand a bit about the game to get any context.   Eg why are they running backwards? It makes it hard to see things.  Why are they running into a wall, now through the wall?  How hard was that?  However if you know that they have just skipped a level, or skipped 30 minutes, then your mouth drops to the floor.


Sssith, this is normally for people who are a bit OCD, they have already played the game (and unlike you, they won't just move on to the next), they try to optimise things, eg, how fast can I get to the end, what can I skip out?   Sometimes things are found by accident! 

Some of the speedrunners only really play one game ever .. but of course there are all types out there.

This sounds like clickbait, but the #1 on this top 10 might sound familiar ;)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqU7X3rOacg&

I happened to have been watching a few of this guys videos, but hadn't run into that one at the time.  I was also looking back into a few speedrun things, then found some of my previous work on other people's youtube channels.  Some gave me credit by name, some didn't.  One had almost 7000 views for something pretty abstract.  I then found talk about someone wanting to beat my time as it was unoptimised and talking about a video.

So possibly 90 000 people have seen something I did about 17 years ago that I thought would be long forgotten.  The internet can be strange at times :P 

Also its not the oldest. The website they looked at is missing some older ones.
