Oh yeah on the game itself. Reviewers seems happy about it. Players not so much. Especially Russians are super pissed.

I totally loved COD4: Modern Warfare (2007). Great game! Excellent single player campaign. And played lots of multiplayer on LAN at the office. Haven't touched the COD franchise since.

And a bit of sad news from the Animation Workshop, which have been producing a lot of talent. Who has found their way to the games industry from time to time. Hope everything will turn out fine in the end.

Roah from Grynsoft (DK) should be launching fairly soon. 30th of November if everything is going according to plan.

We might assume this game will be insanely hard. Their Wings of Vi was a bit over the top on difficulty. But I hope they are scaling it a bit down.

Supposedly 4chan leaky stuff from Blizzard. (So take it with a VERY LARGE grain of salt). Other sources say it is purly fabricated.
First person Diablo 4 would indeed sound way out there.
Blizzcon starting today. So lets see where things are going.
Image

UPDATE:

At least there seems to be some proper leaks from the artbook of Diablo IV. A much darker Diablo than III. With a hint of Brom inspiration. So that's a welcome.

Diablo IV cinematic and gameplay trailers looks BADASS! (Watched first on my phone)

LOVE the creature and environment design! And the dark and gritty tone of everything. Feels like it's Diablo to me again.
The rendering doesn't seem to be completely up to snuff though seen on a big screen. Even though they are showcasing new renderpipeline. Lets hope they improve it further.
I did enjoy the first Diablo. In Diablo II I asked myself the question why I was playing it. And it was only because loot greed was driving me forward. And figured I had more important things to do. But probably missing out?
I tried some Diablo III demo at some point. Found it super boring and also not loving the colorful the art style. So never got into that.
So surprisingly I'm officially a bit hyped for IV. :) Eventough I know it's all about grinding and looting. That will probably bore me. Lets hope they make the best of it.
Local coop with controllers on PC would be awesome with the kiddo. But not counting on it happening at all.

Full event

Death Stranding Rick & Morty ad.. <3


Reviews are also in on the release of Death Stranding. Sounds very positive! No user reviews so far. In a few days though.
https://www.metacritic.com/game/playsta ... ic-reviews

Honestly after seeing the actual gameplay video. And hearing it's 40+hours to complete (I don't really have that kind of time in my busy life for a single game... maaaaybe if I am incredibly entertained).
Super long cutscenes, endless traversal and backtracking etc. Not really for me.
I love the weird world and design though! But the moment to moment gameplay just sounds incredibly tedious. Pass!

Also lengthy Diablo IV gameplay video from the show.. grind'n'loot true to the formula! But damn they make it look and feel tasty.

And also on the release date of Diablo IV.. the game is not even coming out Blizzard soon. So I don't know.. maybe 3-5 years out?

Diablo - Immortal didn't look half bad. I'm sure the reveal of D4 had something to do with the reception of last years Immortal. ;)


Legioncraft has some new slightly tetris inspired mechanics going on. Kind of interesting. Reviews on their early access is in the 'mostley positive' range. Doesn't bode too well.



Terminator: Resistance .... Hmmm.. movie license IP. I don't know..Hmmm... might be somewhat decent?! Might VERY possibly be another nail in the Terminator franchise coffin. Also might be better than something like half of the Terminator movies. ;)
The developer, Reef Entertainment does not inspire confidence. (only mixed reviews of earlier games)



Marvel’s Avengers | Game Overview | PS4
Personally I am not very much into super heroes franchises. But the game looks pretty decent! With over the top production values. Also I know a guy working on it. :)

Marvel’s Avengers: A-Day | Official Trailer E3 2019


Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launch trailer
