D2R: game is apparently pretty good, absolutely huge launch issues between server stability and characters getting deleted, but apparently they're getting them more sorted out now?

OW2 reveal/preview was just the ow client with one less tank, a slightly redone UI and 2 reworked characters on a new map. The numbers on the rework are ludicrous and idk what on earth they were thinking, but the main impression it gives is that there was indeed substance to the leak that they have no clue how to balance 5v5. Sombra is now a dps god annnnnnnnd zarya gets a 2nd bubble? Nice

Reaction has been pretty mixed, some pros are sounding like they're moving on from OW, some seemed underwhelmed but open to giving it a shot, and some seem excited. development issues aside, I'm extremely skeptical that removing the really cool main-tank off-tank synergy and camaraderie is going to make the game better and more interesting. Unless they do some really nutty stuff to make tanks beefier, it's just shaping up to be a turkey shoot as main-tanks 100% rely on the off tank to facilitate taking space and giving zarya one more bubble is not in the least fixing that extremely huge core issue with 5v5 tanking.

Good to hear about D2R

They just seem unable to figure out how to make Tanks work. It has been an issue since the game launched. Every major change has been to control how many Tanks the players would stack.

So they just removed our ability to stack them in any fashion.

The plan to make CC a more tank focused ability is definitely a good idea though.

never understood blizzard's treatment of overwatch. it's been remarkably clear for years that the appeal of overwatch was the characters (and SFM porn) and the shooter part was, like, no one's favorite part. why blizzard didn't make an RPG or adventure game or whatever that actually focuses on what people like instead of trying to make The Future Of ESports.

Likely has to do with how OW came to be in the first place. Was basically the scavenged remains of Project Titan, I honestly doubt anyone had a clue what they should be trying to make and were focused on what they could make with the assets to salvage something.

So how bout that Diablo 2 Remaster. I hear it has problems

At least they appear to be normal rushed game problems and not WTF are you doing problems.

So progress?

Sure would be cool if they did any actual reporting in that there story beyond saying a complaint exists and so does Nintendo.

I do wonder how much Guardians was hurt by Avengers being bad and the initial trailer not being great, since the game itself ended up pretty good.

Going with almost entirely because even my perpetual online self mistook it for more Avengers at first.

I actually think it is weirder that this apparently came from the King side of ABK.
