I have a hard time imagining what WoW2 would even be about, in terms of story and setting. They've been scraping the bottom of the Warcraft lore barrel for years now, and any new stuff has been increasingly uninteresting and dumb.

it would be about orcs and humans killing each other with spaceships and laser rifles OP

For a lot of reasons, I want to avoid posting in this thread, but I do want to clear something about this particular narrative:

A lot of these old games were good because the swath of individual contributors on the projects were good. In fact, I'd go as far to say that a game like WoW was good *despite* Alex's uh...'contributions'. Most of these people are not famous, but their contributions to the quality of the games were huge. It is my estimation that there has been a higher rate of migration away from Blizzard by a lot of these individuals over the past 5 years. More importantly, the vast majority of these folks are good people. To that end, while there are some prominent sex pests that definitely existed in the past, throwing all of those people under the bus is unfair at best.

this is something people forget about when it comes to game development imo. most games arent good because they happen to have a group of rockstar developers that hog all the spotlight and steal all the credit for themselves. they are good because there are genuinely talented people working behind the scenes to make the games good.

I think people need to stop anthropomorpizing companies. Don't get so attached or loyal to them. Great games are made because a group of specific developers worked at the same company in the same time period. It's these developers that people should respect for solely their game-making ability, not the overall behemoth of a company.

It's disgusting when I see people reminiscing about Blizzard like it was an ex.

Donít like things you fuckos, when will you LEARN

its not about not liking things. you can still like things... hell you can even still like blizzard games. its about not developing an unhealthy relationship with a soulless corporation because they all suck rear end and see you as a resource to exploit and are not your friend

It's because gamers by and large are scum. There's a few bright spots, a few good communities in existence, but by and large they're still the same poo poo-ape morons dropping the hard R while spraying cheeto dust on xbox microphones. Game devs originate from this primordial cheeto soup, and they carry their prejudices with them. They dress it up and put out the pride flag for pride month as the corporate world demands in order to avoid getting backlash, but they don't actually believe it, much like most of the corporate world, they just make the moves to get the money. It is a cynical opinion, but it's better to be a cynic than naÔve.

Unless a game dev studio is making conscious, visible steps to increase diversity, and actually makes those diverse members of the team feel valued, assume they're the same shitapes from xbox live.

gamers are people and people can be both good and evil OP

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

the only complaints im seeing is people discovering that the old game still plays like an old game and isnt like they remembered it when they were 12 years old. as a remaster it seems fine and if you liked diablo 2 you will probably enjoy it

pepe being labeled a hate symbol was a really stupid overreaction and just led to nazi's trying harder to claim him as their own. just use the frog if you want too because any sane person should be able to tell the difference between a regular cartoon frog and a racist cartoon frog using simple logic and context

games workshop discovered it was cheaper and easier to just license their properties out to random studios and let them make something with it. i dont think its a bad strategy because you do get a few good games out of it. but sometimes you get shovelware or a bad game out of it because the studio lacked the experience or time and budget to pull it off

Honestly, NFTs are no more a sham than people getting, I dunno, autographed books or certified movie prop replicas or Pokťmon card misprints or the brick from the Berlin wall. Itís not about the actual thing but the symbolism or the rarity of it. If they fix the carbon impact (and itís already totally possible), then what the heck, go for it. Giant corporations will benefit but legitimate artists as well. And if anyone doesnít want to participate thatís fine as well.

Of course itís more than a little lol that Ubisoft execs think the right message is ďdumbass consumers just donít get it.Ē But I think people do get too upset about markets existing for nebulous things. The collectibles market was already weird and inscrutable for hundreds of years; this is not anything new.

these things are all real physical objects you can physically own and prove ownership of and they are actually worth something and have value unlike NFTs what in the world are you talking about lol

the solution to NFTs is very simple and that solution is to not buy NFTs because they are a scam made by scammers to scam other scammers and if you have ever even considered buying an NFT you are stupid
