Thank you for that, I may go back to it then.  As a gamer I fall under the "Loot Whore" label and sometimes I just feel a compulsive need to find all the loots and craft all the bests gizmos.  A game like this is terrible for my neuroses.

As a completionist this is a struggle for me too. But if you can find a way to ignore the crafting and all the fetch side quests, there’s a decent story and game in there.

Not going to defend DA:I too much because it was a frustrating game for me in a lot of respects, and in retrospect it was a harbinger in a lot of ways of the bad things to come in ME:A. But the crafting system in that game is very skippable - you can find gear that is just about as good as anything you craft fairly easily. I don’t think any of the crafting was necessary unless perhaps you were playing at the highest difficulty. 

Agree with this 100%. I think the most I ever did as far as crafting was to upgrade an already powerful item by adding a different part. I don't know that I ever crafted an item from scratch until almost the very end when you gain a couple of additional powers.

So, for PC gamers, Destiny 2 is FREE to own forever from now until November 18.  You just need to use your Battle.net account, or at least create one. The deets

once again Blizzard has left me feeling like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football.  What an incredibly disappointing Diablo announcement.

Not a huge announcement, but i'm kinda excited for the HD re-master of Warcraft III.  that was probably my favorite strategy campaign ever.  I didn't play that multiplayer like I did StarCraft and Warcraft II, but had a ton of fun single player.

Path of Exile is taking advantage of Blizzards PR Diablo disaster.  Yesterday POE announced a really cool new game feature, and today they just announced that POE will be available on PS4 in December.  And next week POE will announce the new league.   

Disenchanted Diablo players are flooding into POE.   What a shame Blizzard screwed this up so bad.  The ARPG space has room for two good games.

Here is the cool pS4 trailer

WHAT ABOUT SWITCH!?

I picked up Diablo 3 on Switch and portable Diablo is fantastic, but it's painfully obvious that Diablo 3 is not as good as PoE is.

I love both although I agree POE is simply better.   

I was not delusional enough to expect a Diablo 4 but I had fooled myself into hoping for a remaster of Diablo 2, which I never played.

Instead we got to witness the worst reveal arguably in gaming history.

The people who go to Blizzcon are preprogrammed to cheer a fart in church.  The fact that they were booing and asking if this was an April's Fool joke was cringe worthy.  I have no idea what Blizzard was thinking announcing this at Blizzcon.

Cliff notes on what the announcement was?

People were expecting an announcement that Diablo 4 was in the works, but instead were told that there was a new free-to-play Diablo game coming to mobile that's being created by a Chinese developer.  Things got awkward.

@NewlyRetired Haven't seen you on Hearthstone much lately. Wanted to brag, made top 200 legend last month, and already legend on day 5 (top 100) this month. Playing in both DreamHack Atlanta next month and HCT Playoffs in Philadelphia Dec 14th through 16th - maybe I'll be on tv PogChamp . Getting a divorce freed up a #### ton of my time and I got back to ladder grinding. although we need the new expansion Ive been having fun with the game

I have taken my first break from Hearthstone in almost 4 years of play now.  I have been focusing on Path of Exile lately.  

I still follow the Hearthstone scene and watch a lot of the tournaments so I will keep an eye out for you :) .

Top 200 legend is fantastic!  Congrats.

Path of Exile is ruthless.

As everyone who follows gaming know Blizzard had the PR screw up of all time at Blizzcon basically spitting in the face of their Diablo fan base by announcing "Diablo Immortal".

Today Path of Exile announced another enormous expansion to the game entitled, Path of Exile: Betrayal in which the players have to battle The Immortal Syndicate.

It was some of the best live action cringe I've seen in awhile.

They told a room of hardcore PC gamers that paid thousands of dollars to come to Blizzard's personal advertising convention to be told that the next Diablo game will be a cheap mobile knock off with micro transactions.

Then when someone asked a question about whether they would eventually port it over to PC, they said empathically no. So they got booed. To which they replied "You all have phones don't you?"

Pretty generic question I know, but looking for feedback...always been a Nintendo gamer growing up, but wanted to get the kids into something different.

PS4 or Xbox One ???

 

Whats your take?  Kids are 9 and 7. 

 

Thanks all.

Find out what their friends have. Get that. They'll be playing with them online soon enough.

Definitely this but hopefully cross platform play makes this a non-issue in the near future.

Sony (PS4) has been pretty against cross platform so far.

PS4 has the better and wider array of exclusives. I'm biased but I've been with Sony my whole life. But yeah, like others said, get what your kids friends have.

I’m an Xbox guy and I’d generally agree, although with kids that age there’s probably no meaningful difference in the age-appropriate exclusives.

Both?

We have two Xbox's, PS4, and ps3 all hooked up. Xbox gets the most play, other than when the new Show comes out, and when college football kicks off. Then the PS3 is the leader with the boys playing the last version of college football made. We're primarily sports games though.

New Xbox One X system is fantastic.

I own both every iteration.

I skipped Xbox this year after the launch debacle.

PS4 is a great system.

I took advantage of the pre balck friday deal and glad I did

Any PS4 guys have thoughts on the Pro and whether it’s a must have or not?  There are some pretty good normal PS4 sales but haven’t seen any deals on the Pro, and I’m wondering if it’s worth holding out for a bargain on the latter.

I just upgraded a couple months ago to a Pro. I wouldn't necessarily call it a must have. Depends if the 4K experience is really worth it to you. Now I mean...if I happened to have an OLED 4K tv, then yes I'd call a Pro a must have. It really comes down to how much 4K visuals mean to you.

As far as sales, not sure if there will be anything, and even if there is, the availability will be extremely limited. There's been a national stock shortage for probably about the past year. I had to wait for anywhere, local retailer or online, about a month and a half from when I started looking for anybody to get one in. One day a shipment of like 4 came into my local gamestop. I reserved it early morning and traded in my regular PS4.

Then some friends of mine just told me last night that apparently Sony is skipping out completely on E3 next year. They think this is because they'll announce PS5 in 2020. Not hard to believe IMO. So if you do wanna get a Pro, I'd do it fairly soon as next gen may be revving up in a couple years.

My launch PS4 died and I replaced it with a pro.  I don't have a 4K set and I really don't notice much difference in visuals.  The extra HD space is nice to have, but I would have done just as well with a regular PS4.

(I'm probably picking up a 4K set this Christmas, so things will change not too far down the road).
