    More effort was put into a SSBU campaign than Black Ops 4.

    Path of Exile

    Now that I've played it for several hours and I'm into act 3. Some of the initial issues with the game are subsiding. The tombs of wisdom and portals drop abundantly. The major drawback to the game for me now is that loot is absolute shit. I mean there is way too much junk. Maybe thats because I'm playing standard and not league. Getting a good tier drop with shit amounts of sockets and wrong colors makes me hold on to my old armor a lot longer. I finally got to the point where I can obtain things that randomly change the colors, fuses, and amounts, but these items are RNG and can go either way. You basically have to either have a lot of these items, have enough alternate currency to trade for them, or only use it on new things you haven't grown attached to hoping for the best. I do like the skill gem system, its my favorite part of this game. Now that i have a good 40-50 of them, I have a lot of options and flexibility for new armor drops. For me the Skill Tree/Skill Gem system is better than D3's system, which only let you alter your same set of attacks. I haven't played D3 in years so I don't know what if any kind of alterations they've made to it. Plus the classes aren't as limited to a single weapon set... even though a ranger using a wand or bladed mace is weird, you can do it, and work your way through the skill tree to support it. Its probably not end game worthy, but hey you can do whatever you want.

    Path of Exile

    I played a few hours of this finally on PC. I must say its quite good so far. Its definitely heavily inspired by Diablo 2. Its like if Diablo 3 had D2's intricate character build system 10x. I'm actually pretty lost in the skill tree, its absolutely insane. What is interesting about this game is that your builds mostly rely on your socketed gems, and armor drops are more than just Common-Unique, you want a good socket placement. I've read that you'll get a NPC later that can change socket arrangements which will save a lot of headache. You get skill gems that enhance your attacks, gives you spells, and other gems that support these attacks by enhancing them even further. And on top of all of that the gems are divided into 3 colors Green/Blue/Red and these grant Dexterity/Intelligence/Strength. The huge skill tree grants passive buffs and life/mana increases/regens. The interesting thing is how potions work. You get 5 potion slots. each slot can hold a vial for HP, MP, and a temp movement speed buff. These never run out but you can only use them 2-3 maybe 4 times until hey drain out and you have to let them recharge. Of course these have small-large sizes, and I got a drop for one that regenerates 50% faster. So I guess there must be rare vials you can get eventually. You can customize the set up in whatever way you want. You can have 5 HP potions, 5 MP potions, 4HP/1MP, 3/2, 5 speed potions? ETC you get the point. The game is F2P, so its def worth checking out on PC. You get a 10 arc story without having to pay a dime. I looked through their microtransaction tab and its 90% cosmetics and 10% storage upgrades. Without paying anything, you get a very generous 4 tab stash, and a pretty shitty personal inventory, thats on par with Diablo. You can't upgrade this from what I saw, you can just upgrade the stash, and I think you can get another stash that you can open anywhere in the game, but its not sharable between characters. I've been making it a long just fine with the basic. The only thing they do to tempt you into buying the personal stash is that the NPCs give you wisdom scrolls for selling them junk. These ID items, but also act as currency to buy things from vendors. So if you play like diablo and skip all the common drops, you'll never get a lot of wisdom scrolls. Selling blue and higher give you a different item altogether. So if you need some, you'll have to go around and pick up 5-9 items, use the WP or portal scroll to go back to town and sell and repeat.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

    They deny it. Everyone it talking about Path of Exile, I plan on giving it a shot. It's coming out for PS4 next month, but I'll give the PC version a shot, its skill tree looks insane.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

    Its more about how they did it than that they did it. They could have announced it some time else rather than the biggest event for their hardcore PC fan base. I don't think this is the same as other times. They're getting walloped really bad. They even admitted they expected flak, just not this much of it. They changed all their Facebook art back to D3 logos today as well. I'm not even really mad about the stupidity of making a mobile game. I'm irritated with how they're acting "You gotta respect mobile games" my ass. Its crazy how these publishers have gotten to the point where they think they can tell the gamers that they have no choice but to accept the bullshit they pump out. EDIT: https://www.vg247.com/2018/11/05/blizzard-had-planned-to-announce-diablo-4-after-the-mobile-game-reveal-report/?fbclid=IwAR2hVhArXfUArpiV80SMwacSiRJKvb7mlkwsF0OoOWMbCrKeqM27EBrouU8 The plot thickens.

    What a fucking disgrace. What's with these developers getting all high and mighty about fans calling them out on their bullshit? Ashe was about the only good thing that came out of the whole Con... Warcraft 3 didn't need remastering... Warcraft 2 did. WC3's graphics are still pretty nice to this day. Meanwhile Diablo fans continued to get shat on, it actually makes me hate Warcraft and everything else Blizzard makes, even though I like that stuff. Diablo has always and will always be my favorite. I'd even take a D2 remaster.

    Castlevania - Netflix

    I just binged Season 2. It was decent. I wish they'd just commit to 12 eps though. It was a bit slow, they introduced brand new characters that don't have much of an impact because they're being road mapped for the next season if there is one. The last three episodes are outstanding.. so you get a bunch of build up and a payoff.. I just feel like 12 episodes would have served it better. I felt like they kinda wasted too much time to where Dracula didn't really matter.

    PlayStation Classic

    The list is kinda meh for me. MGS, Syphon Filter, Battle Arena Toshinden, and Ridge Racer Type 4 for my favorites out of it... I find it odd they picked the best Ridge Racer of the series, Tekken 3, but then chose Twisted Metal over TM2. Could have used Jet Moto, Warhawk, Tomb Raider, and Armored Core.
  13. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a testament to what single player games can be when you spend years developing them rather than 1-2 years and throw them out there with endless sequels. It would take me a few hours to hammer out my initial thoughts on this game. The level of detail is truly spectacular. My one concern was having to juggle all the health/stamina and weapon maintenance, but somehow Rockstar made it very uncumbersome to where its there, but you don't really have to worry about it every few minutes... I've gone hours without having to rest or use consumables. I've found myself getting lost in just tracking/hunting for hours. The amount of random side content is astonishing. After I get off work tomorrow, I'll have a whole week to dive into it and get lost. I'm really looking forward to it.
