Yeah...that analogy doesn't work for me.


It is not that Blizzard deserves the hate that they received; it's that they earned it.


Agreed. Well earned. They demonstrated a clear and present disconnect with their audience. I can't imagine a greater corporate faux pas.  It's difficult to come up up an apt analogy.

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...

I'm ok with Blizzard doing a mobile game.  The problem is that they thought we would be excited for the game.  They were teasing the big Diablo reveal.  They had it as the capstone of their opening ceremony for Blizzcon.  They thought we would want this game.  Holy shit are they wrong.  This is a game that you announce any other time.  If they had done that it would not have been nearly the problem that it is.  If they wanted to do this at Blizzcon they needed to tease D4, or some Diablo PC/Console game.  Then, and only then, they could have said, 'Oh hey, we also have this coming to tide you over.'

I am slowly developing a love hate relationship with The Pre-Sequel.  There are some mission that are just fantastic.  Great pacing, tough and fluid fights, with interesting environments.  There are other parts that are just flat out tedious.  And to Timmeh's point...Did all of Australia relocate to the Pandoran moon?  It seems to me that they went overboard with the Australian accents and colloquialism.  There have been several times when I have had no clue what is being said.

Another fun aspect of the game is you have a bunch of little seeds for things that happen in BL2.  That is actually really fun, but tough to give examples without spoiling some of the fun for those of you that might play it.

I have decided to stick with Nisha.  So far she really seems to kick ass, and I haven't even gotten to one of her main skills yet.

  • 7 Little Words
  • Monkey Wrench
  • Majong
  • Suduku
  • Cross Word

There is a certain pattern in all of those.  Word games, matching, logic.  Non-intensive UI.  Non complex games.

Any time that I have tried something more it didn't work.  A tablet might be ok but we are talking phones, and I don't currently have a tablet.

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

Hello

Based on all this immortal nonsense, I want to know what games you play, and how they are different, or the same as what you play on a real computer/console.

For me I have paid money (from a voucher) for the Rockstar pack.  This is GTA3, VC, SA, China Town Wars, LCS, Max Payne, Bully.  This represents a bunch of games I've played to death on PC, and some I had never had access to before.  However its difficult to find time to do it properly and the controls and screen aren't ideal.

I also bought The Talos Principle on ios.  Loved that game, haven't done much in iOS yet.
Also bought Bridge Constructor Portal which I don't have on PC yet.  I haven't got into this much.


Then there is the stuff I got as free apps, but am addicted to:

Hill Climb Racing 2: Physics based driving game, upgrade cars, race against ghost cars of other people.  I've played this mostly every day for over a year.  I enjoy the skill and buy/upgrade it all.    Have not spent a cent in it.

Mini Golf King: a PVP game, you put in virtual cash to play a game, winner takes all. If you aren't careful you have no cash and can't play more.  Upgrade your kit with time, has good social elements.  Skill and luck are required to play.

More recently got into another golf one "Golf Battle", its different and "Merge Plane" an idle game.

I've tried lots of things, but most get trashed.

I've been thinking about this, how there is such a large mass of HELL NO! from the real fans.  How Blizzard are so keen on it for various reasons.  And then a mix of the media who say they are doing the right thing for the right reasons.  I have been thinking this might be similar to a bunch of decades ago when Rock n Roll first came out.  Imagine the other Diablo games are some of the best Jazz music around.   Those fans have heard this new fangled thing, but it isn't for them.  That didn't stop The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and all the rest of them.  Will we end up with mostly two different fan  groups with a smaller group who like and enjoy both types?  Blizzard gets a bigger exposure overall, but its very clear they need to use the F word.  FOUR.  Just put something, even a teaser to say, yes we are working on it. Even if everything changes between now and release.
