There's no live human NPCs. There are lots of robots. And lots of quests and stories. It's just that it's more discovery-based than in-your-face-do-this-now. You'll come upon a place and get quests based on that place, and discovering what happened there, or dealing with robots-gone-bad. And the "main quest" will take you all over but seems to be very "whenever you feel like it." That is, there's no sense of false urgency like in FO4 where you would WANT to do all this other stuff but in the back of your mind would always be that nagging sense that if this were real life, you'd be bee-lining the main quest because of course you would.

There is a metric shitload of the environmental storytelling that Bethesda does best. You know, where you learn about events and people through the things/notes/tapes you find, and it's often up to you to piece it together.

Also, the first non-starter weapon I found in the beta was a pitchfork modified to have 3 barbed tines and flames attached. That's pretty amazing. LOL

This game is really fun, guys.

Also, for those who were put off by pvp? It's basically opt-in. If another player attacks you, you have like 99% damage reduction until/unless you attack back. Basically, shooting at someone is the equivalent of sending a duel request in most MMOs. If you don't want to, just don't bother.

That said, I have found people are generally helpful. I haven't personally encountered a complete twit yet.

Also, the servers are very low population. I had a server to myself for like 3 hours one time. Most of the time there seems to be 6-10 other people on the server... spread across the entire map (which is massive). You can play for ages and not see another player if want.

I didn't vote for the criminal or the clown.

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...

None. Phones are for talking and texting and light internet (reddit, facebook, etc). Not for gaming. That's why I have two consoles and a badass PC.

:D

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.

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

Yes, it's free until the 18th. That doesn't mean that after the 18th you lose it. Just means if you don't claim (install) it by then, you miss out.

Is there confirmation? I didn't think there was enough Diablo Immortal gameplay shown yet to come to that conclusion.

The comments on their twitter feed are priceless too.

"People would have been less disappointed if you cancelled the series."

"I admire the two of you worldwide who are excited about this."

A goddamn mobile mmo. Just... why?

Mobile
MMO

the two things core Diablo players do not want.

Blizz has totally lost touch with the Diablo playerbase.
