1. If this ends up being good I'll buy the damn thing. The hardware, the software, anything. I'll even be OK with pucking every half an hour :)

2. How the hell do they intent to make it? I can't think of anything that doesn't change the game dramatically.

Stop updating a broken and dated game, make a new dam game already, those of us who were addicted to this game years ago played it to death and aren't coming back.
Aever Avatar

Ehm, 68k people seem to disagree with you.


Anyway, by "dated" I assume you're referring to the graphics? GGG isn't Blizzard, they didn't have the resources to make the game look as good as Diablo does. But they made up in the mechanics department, where honestly PoE makes Diablo look like a children's game.


I'm curious however what do you mean by "broken"?

Honestly, I still hope for this game to become good. If they invest in it and manage to turn it around, instead of running away with the money, then I'll be more than happy to applaud them.

Thanks for this article.

Which should suprise absolutely no one since this is how Blizzard have always made their games since the rise of 3D graphics. Taking a good aesthetic and good framerate over cutting edge graphics combined with nicking the best bits of other games and then putting it in a package that is easily accessable to as many people as posible lead to their massive popularity. Fortunately you don't need originality to be successful.
Aever Avatar

The price is that most of their games look like cartoons. Depending on personal preference this might or might not be a problem. For me personally it is, I've always hated Blizzard for using that kind of aesthetics in games with great mechanical depth. Basically, I like their games, but hate their graphics.

I tend to agree. This seems like Blizzard attempting to brute force the shutdown of this "tool". Maybe they should focus on making their games more secure instead?


On the other hand, a lot of games these days come with anti-cheating tools, which can be best described as rootkits. If I was to chose between having a rootkit forcefully installed on my machine or having slimy lawyers fighting shady developers ... I think I know which option I would chose.

Let's be fair here. Blizzard are CONSTANTLY making their games more secure, but these tools require memory manipulation and aren't easy to catch unless you aggressively scan the client running them. If Blizzard did that to your PC you'd flip your shit as it's an invasion of privacy.


Honorbuddy users get caught in a banwave every 1-4 Months.


There was one in (I think) August last year, one in November and there was one today - and the last two were after Honorbuddy's supposedly improved bot detection detector.


It seems like if you're using Honorbuddy at any point you're basically risking getting caught in a banwave and it seems almost certain that getting caught is detection of the bot as opposed to being reported as lots of very careful botters get caught in these banwaves too.

I'd also like this to become a regular thing. There are so many games around and I like any kind of "bird's eye view" over what's out there and good.


Book of Demons looks absolutely beautiful. It's on my watch list now. Cheers.

57% of gamers are running on AMD Radeon graphics57% of gamers are running on AMD Radeon graphics
Aever Avatar

Kind of, yes. But to get the full picture, you need to take into account non-gaming PCs, which no one knows what hardware they use.


But then .. 57% market share, assuming that's all consoles, that means that PC has 43% of the games market?

Reply
Dave James Avatar

PC actually has far more of the market than that. The 57% Radeon hardware percentage already takes into account AMD PC users, so if you take the JPR report figures as gospel, with a total of 410 million PC gamer GPUs in the world and 307 million AMD console GPUs, the PC has 57% of the total gaming market.


But even then that's an estimate so if could be even higher. PC FTW, eh?

Or you can host your site in a country in which Blizzard can't touch you. There are plenty of "exotic" locations in which US companies can't bully you.

Belimawr Avatar

yes then the host is out of reach, but if you still live in america (or other similar country) you are still in a place they can put a target on your back.


yes it stops them actively taking the site down, but you are still running the site and still live in a country you can be held acountable. unless of course you are also going to move to a country where they can't come after you but that seems a bit excessive.


just look at the people who ran pirate bay, servers were in these safe havens they were in one of the norse countries, in the end they went to jail in their home country and were forced to close down the site.

Why does everything need to be cartoon-ish these days? What next? Dark Souls in a "bright and colorful new aesthetics"? Bloody hell, how am I supposed to take the game seriously, when it looks like it was made by Disney?Reply
Calimal Avatar

I agree that this game doesn't need to, and maybe even shouldn't be drawn in a cartoon-like art style, but surely the very idea of needing to "take the game seriously" is counter-productive to the fact that it is a game...

World of Warships review snippet How does World of Warships run on your PC?
Reasonably well, the game feels much better optimized than WoT. I would expect better framerates though, since the graphics aren't spectacular and the action is fairly slow.

Let's just say I haven't seen in DD any reason not to. Bu then again, I'll judge any game from them on its own merits, not those of DD.

No, it's not grindy, unless you really try to turn it into a grind. Play it as it is supposed to be played and even a bit more and it doesn't have any sort of grind in it.
