    posted a message on About 800 employees sacked at Blizzard

    The layoffs are mostly PR and advertising/public works. It's not a big cut to anything Diablo programmer wise, but HotS took a big hit.


    EDIT: It's kinda a "healthy" cut back. It's not core people. Activision takes care of most of the marketing.

    Agreed. The new seasonal buff is a great addition that can effect builds quite heavily. The updated set bonuses are amazing aswell. LoN buff should hopefully bring out new builds.

    posted a message on playing on 2 PS4 back and forth character transfer

    Doubt it's automatic because of the issue of over writing a save. You're probably stuck with uploading/downloading the save every time.


    Just curious, no hate from here, but why 2 ps4s? Other than being a beast of a console with sold games that the pc can't touch ;)

    Why not look at runewords that you and your cousin favored/desired most?

    I'm just going to pretend The Flash screw up the time line...


    I love the artwork. This gives me more hope that Immortal will be something unexpectedly good. They seem to be going with a more realistic approach with less dynamic coloring. The details are amazing.

    Awesome job!


    Not to hijack, but how is Kulle even in Immortal?

    Quote from Metropolis_Man»

    Hmmm...maybe it's my American interpretation of the word "gypsy" but it's not a word I associate with strength, fighting demons, etc. I am envisioning Cher's Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves song and seeing people dressed in rags asking for handouts and working at circuses.

    Our people are not merely "Tramps and Thieves". Circuses, those that you would associate within modern terms (the past 100 years), are for "modern" spectacles for men and not for children with belief and desire (imagination)... We are of nomads. The places that many call home are only a simple glimpse into the potential of true life. We gather and stay learning only what we need until it is time to move. We do not often share, only to experience life as we are made to. Your problems are not ours, nor ours yours... For you cannot understand our history, but we understand yours.... Our secrets are never known, for we keep them with us and never stay for long.....


    Yeah, it's probably your American interpretation (no offense by any means). But gypsies are a mystical people. They travel all around, and despite what Hollywood tells you, it's not all party and games. Some say they were of a nation, but saw that nation fall before it did. They left. They've traveled all of Asia, Europe, and beyond. This is very much like the ancient Horadrium. They are perfect for the Diablo universe. Some real life gypsies communities still use cooking equipment, musical instruments, books, and even gathering/hunting/farming equipment that are hundreds of years old.

    posted a message on [2019] Upcoming aRPGs

    I believe that's something they're working on with a hopeful 2019/2020 release.

    If you have friends, it plays pretty good with multiplayer. I actually made 2 friends by just posting online stating that I'm starting new and fresh and want to experience this game blind after not playing in 2 years.

    posted a message on [2019] Upcoming aRPGs

    I'm mostly a console player (PS4) so here it goes....


    PC/Xbox - Grim Dawn. I can't state how awesome this game is. It's much better than PoE and feels more like a true Diablo game. Sucks it's coming to the Xbox and not the PS4, but maybe eventually ;)


    PS4 - PoE. Might aswell give it another try.


    PC/Xbox/PS4 - Torchlight. I bought a 360 just for Torchlight.


    Anyone know of any good PS4 games that fit into this genre?


    EDIT: Destiny 1/2 are great loot hunter games. The first one really met the Diablo vibe, but sci-fi.


    EDIT 2: Darksiders 2 was funner than Hell.

    posted a message on New competition to win a Diablo 3 Switch bundle you need..... Diablo 3 Switch?

    So, if I'm reading this correctly, you need a photo of Diablo 3 on the Switch in order to win?


    Somehow this doesn't sound right. The prize is the console with the game, but you need both in order to enter?


    I don't hate on Blizzard really ever, but this is a wtf scenario.


    Then the winners are picked by the most upvotes which means some good location like Blizz headquarters or a cute gal? Maybe a someone's kid playing? A cat playing with the screen?

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Black Soulstone video question?

    Horadric? Not sure if you're familiar if that name, but that's the language and people who Tyrael initiated to capture the 3 brothers before D2. They show up again in D3, but a new generation.


    Part of D3's development is that they got rid of all pentagrams and what not so it didn't connect to real life stuff. This may have included the languages used....

    posted a message on Diablo 4 Reportedly in Development Under Code Name Fenris

    @aerisot I've got to agree. Diablo is now, in many ways, THE Prime Evil.


    LoD gave use Baal focused story that turned a single act into almost as much content as the base game. They could focus on Mephisto and his offspring, I'm always going to mention and root for Inarius after being in the mirror cage, then there's alot of characters in the "Book ofs" series.


    Hell, even the new zones in D3 need alot more explanation to them.


    With Diablo 3 introducing all these new areas that the character classes come from, they could make a whole game focusing on those groups and how they're dealing with the massive slaughter RoS had on Sanctuary and what's going to happen in the future. Even if Diablo will come back, who says it can't happen in 20 years after RoS? That's alot of time to get things back to the Diablo franchise's great story. Maybe finish it with some leading up to or dealing with Diablo's resurfacing (which is still strange, is he in Hell or Sanctuary? Maybe looking for a new host that was worked so well in the past. Maybe a stronger host with the nephalem's power not being controlled).

    Quote from TheFuuZ»

    At least I hope Mr. Morhaime does the opening ceremony for a last time before Jay is going to take over. Thats all I want, I will not leave the hype train yet, but my expectations are lower, so in a few days, we will see.

    Have a nice weekend all.

    Wow, that would be amazing. Would never have thought of this. Being pretty much a life long Blizzard fan (Warcraft 1/2/3, Starcraft 1/2, and of course Diablo everything), this would be kinda emotional. Not teary eyed or anything, but more heart warming.


    Metzen and Morhaime defiantly are legends when it comes to video games.

    How much ?

    I was able to get the preorder deal of $20. Not sure if it's still available.


    Thanks for the post OP. The Book ofs series have been amazing. I hope we can get a cool pull-out/poster like the other ones.
