I’m highly amused by the fact that I wasn’t even aware it was actually going to be made. Last I heard about that franchise was that people didn’t want to play on their phones :P.

Not really. Diablo hasn’t had a fun product for about 20 years. It’s not on a lot of peoples radars.

I think it’s fair for 1) a bunch of people not caring about Diablo as a whole and then never hearing about the 4th installment until they end up in the comments of a random webcomic that they happen to read; 2) got pissed off enough about Immortal that they just wrote off the series; or 3) actively despise modern day Activision Blizzard due to either their support of Xi Jinping or the several employment scandals, and thus wouldn’t care even if Diablo was getting a main release I’m part of the first group personally, but the 3rd group totally… Read more »

Like A Dragon Ishin?
Metroid Prime Remastered?

to be fair, the two nintendo ones are not getting beta releases by any stretch

Mostly because nintendo doesnt do betas, internal testing they do is enough to cover; where as western studios like to beta …aka cash games in rough states

I have also spoken recently about a Statute of Limitations on when Facebook can restrict your account. Going back to a 3 year old post and sending you to jail for 90 days now is just stupid!!

youtube completely nuking channels in a similar fashion. Unpublished rule changes + strikes from old ‘in spec’ content that is now somehow bad = buh bye.

agreed, but they’ve been copy striking 4 year old videos that never had an issue before and fell under fair use so it’s not just about shitty human being content.

Right, but giving content creators a heads up would be nice nonetheless, especially because, while some of the new rules make complete sense, others are entirely arbitrary and only there to soothe advertisers.

That’s just absurd. Why should there be an expiration date, on the consequences of your actions? If it is wrong now, it was wrong then, and vice versa. I mean, we’re not talking 30 years here. In that case, I might understand. Society changes, etc. But you’re taking merely THREE years. Maybe they only noticed it now. Maybe someone only pointed it out now. They cannot be everywhere all the time. Sometimes, they simply take a long while to spot something. And I say this, being ABSOLUTELY aware of how thoroughly BROKEN and INCOHERENT FB’s sanction policies are. I could… Read more »

*Shrug* Wasn’t sure why this was posted here yesterday but, in the interest of discussion: Stuff happens. One of my posts got nuked because I said that California was considering Reparations with a link to the news story (I believe the one that I used was the LA Times). Despite it being on every single major news network, the bots that run Facebook moderation nuked the post and gave me a warning. Only way that you can avoid this stuff from happening is to delete your Facebook account. Otherwise, you are giving tacit approval for Zuckerberg’s AI to do what… Read more »

Actually, given how much he got into gaming, they would be wise to try to watch for Zeke online to use it to find a way to track him.

I actually thought the same and that this might be a plot point where Ethan finds them while playing

I bet Zeke would be one hell of a cheater too. I can easily see them getting a lot of amusement out of people reacting to Zeke’s hacking and exploit abuse.

Of course once they’re done hacking out the master’s spine.

This is me thinking that the pings aren’t going to come but while playing the beta of this game Ethan is going to run into someone named ZeeKay or something similar in game and amends will be made… or Ethan’s avatar getting smited over and over, you know… potato potahtoe

Only semi-related, but I now expect Zeke to be (temporarily?) banned in some online game for being too good and accused of using bots, similar to how it happened to Legion in Mass Effect games, because they had too good reaction times, controlled a number of pets (at the same time) a human couldn’t manage (and without macros), etc.
And then somehow proved they are playing fair, without revealing they are a Geth. ๐Ÿ™‚

Banning of bots would be accurate but sort of racist where Zeke is concerned.

Really disliking this ‘they’ thing. I’d prefer a gender, or ‘it’

‘it’ is dehumanizing, and makes someone an object. ‘it’ is property.
Calling Zeke or anyone and ‘it’ makes them into something less then human.

Your argument is slightly off base since Zeke isn’t human, but could be corrected by replacing the word with sentient & intelligent.

It does make me really happy that Tim made the choice to make Zeke non-binary in this reboot. It’s pretty logical since they don’t really have any alignment with gender, even though people feel the need to make robots and cars and whatever else gendered.
