I try not to care about this sort of thing but it hits me right in the nostalgia feels. After killing the soul of the franchise with D3 I guess its fitting they would desecrate its corpse.

I can already tell I'm not good enough to be good at this game.

the “slow your fall if you start shouting at the apex of your jump” mechanic is so simple and fun and good

Welcome to 5 reasons not to use an engine that you made entirely open and provided all the tools needed to mod that engine in an online game. Oh and how to entirely not secure anything for your users.

I am as much a Fallout and Bethesda fan as everyone else, I've sunk around 4000 hours into Fallout4 and have been making mods for about 2 years. So when I got into the PC Beta and it allowed me to download the client and files, I started playing with them.

Number 1: There are no server checks to verify models or file integrity. Want to make trees smaller, or player models bright colors to see them easier? Go right ahead, here are the tools to do it!

Number 2: Terrain and invisible walls/collision is client side! Want to walk through walls? Open up that beautiful .esm file and edit it. The server doesn't care or check!

Number 3: Want to save money on server hardware and make ping a little more manageable? Go ahead and open up client to client communication but don't encrypt it or obfuscate it in anyway. Open up Wireshark while playing and nab anyone's IP you want! Send packets to the server to auto use consumables, all very nicely and in plain text! Even get health info and player location, why waste time injecting the executable and getting nabbed by anti-cheat when you can get all info from the network!

Number 4: Want to grief people and be a God? Go ahead and keep looping the packet captured in Wireshark reporting you gave full HP. Why would the server care about something as little and not game breaking like this?!?! It's a great idea to let the client tell the server it's state and the server not check anything it's being told! The possibilities with this are endless and probably able to just give yourself items by telling the server you picked it up!

Number 5: Someone in your game being mean? Again have Wireshark? Well let's just forge a packet with the disconnect command in it and knock them offline!

In conclusion: Bethesda should not have just made Fallout76 by throwing mods on it from Nexus and sold it as a new game. Have fun in the wasteland gamers.

anyway diablo 3 came out 5 years ago and has had a pretty long lifecycle so i don't really know why these nerds are so upset anyway. the wait between d2 and d3 was like 12 years.

I think it’s less about wanting d4 and more about wanting reassurance that Blizzard won’t abandon its commitment to PC gaming. I think they even know that it will probably be a popular game and that’s part of why they’re mad because a popular and lucrative Blizzard mobile game makes it that much more likely for some Activision exec to point to revenue charts and bring up the question of why they bother having Blizzard spend time/money on PC games at all

it’s also a larger question of the company overall catering more to Chinese audiences than American PC audiences, which is similar to what’s happened to blockbuster movies in the past several years

I thought D3 was unbearably boring so I don’t really give a shit either way, but it’s interesting to follow

but overwatch and battle for azeroth are still very popular and they just announced a wc3 remaster. it's fucked up that they would show off a phone game like some huge announcement but i don't think it indicates that they're abandoning pc anytime soon.

the diablo phone game looks kind of fun to me.

my one concern is that it might make me answer the question "how much would i pay for a phone game?", and that's assuming it's not micro-transaction driven.

Path of Exile private leagues come with mods that make the game 'absurdly hard'

I finally beat Arkham Asylum... it’s been sitting on my pile of shame for 6 years. I liked it - obviously it’s pretty dated but the atmosphere is cool. The art design/unreal engine 3 of it all is a bit hard to get over but mostly it was cool. Started up Arkham City but kind of want to jump to Arkham Origina because of the whole Christmas setting.

Played through Night In The Woods. I liked it a lot! The Big Mystery was a lil whatever but I liked inhabiting the world and feel like people are having similar feelings to me and it was pretty
