#14076772 CAGbag: Get your questions answered on CAGcast

Posted by tcrash247 on 07 November 2018 - 01:52 AM

I'm going to assume you guys are gonna talk about the Diablo controversy so I wanted to make a post to let you know where us fans are coming from.  I'm a huge Diablo fan, I would call Diablo 2 my favorite game of all time.


The main point I want to make is that the problem isn't 100% that they're releasing a mobile game.  Do I want a Diablo mobile game?  No.  But I don't care that they're launching it.  Blizzard isn't even working on it, they outsourced it to NetEase who has reskinned one of their existing games to make it look like Diablo.  So, this isn't a Blizzard game, it's a game using Diablo imagery.


The big problem with this is the way they chose to announce it.  Blizzcon is a convention filled with Blizzard super fans.  They travel from all over the world to go to the con to see new game, big announcements, meet up with friends, etc.  These are your biggest supporters.  A major Diablo announcement was teased previously.  Then the schedule came out and Diablo had the very first panel on the main stage.  Full erection from the fans, me being one of them.  Then Diablo had the FINAL stage presence in the opening ceremony.  What could the announcement be?  Diablo 4?  Diablo 3 DLC?  Diablo 2 remaster?  I'd shit bricks for any one of them.


But no, Diablo Mobile.  Diablo 3 players are starved for new content.  The last DLC came out over a year ago and the expansion over 4 years ago with seemingly nothing on the horizon.  Diablo mobile is aimed at casuals, not the audience you're making this announcement for.  It's funny that they didn't understand that and all they could do was make fun of us.  DON'T YOU HAVE PHONES?  That's not the point, Wyatt.


Remember what Bethesda did at E3?  They softened the blow of lame ass announcements with teasing the next Elder Scrolls and Starfield.  I believe the makers of Gears did that too when they announced that funko game, they also announced they're working on the next Gears proper.  If Blizzard ended the opening ceremony with a Diablo 4 title card, Diablo 3 voiceover of a DLC character or some shit or a logo for Diablo 2 remastered there would be no problem at all and we wouldn't be having this conversation.  But they bungled it.


You might be saying "well you only have yourself to blame for lofty expectations."  But I argue that Blizzard's expectations of what a convention center full of superfans wants was completely wrong.  Announce this fuckin thing on Facebook or something.  They were extremely out of touch with this one.  Know your audience!


I probably sound like a crazy person in this post, but this was a massive disappointment to Diablo fans everywhere.  The only thing I can tell you to do to try and understand is replace Diablo with something beloved to all of you.

I'm surprised you didn't like Annihilation, Cheapy.  I loved it.  I thought the visuals, cinematography and screenplay were very good and super interesting.  The horror elements were also very cool, the scene in the house was fantastic and creepy as hell.  The end was a total trip, the sound was amazing.  I'll have to read the book to see how it compares and to see if it expands on the plot.


To say it was too depressing was odd coming from you.  I didn't find it that depressing, compared to a lot of stuff you and I both watch.

I'm glad someone on the show thought the movie was a complete dumpster fire because it was.  I was not entertained at all, the humor was god awful, half the movie could be cut out and you wouldn't even realize it and all the subversion was done solely for the sake of being subversion.

It literally has the lowest amount of Godzilla (compared to movie length) for all the Godzilla centric movies. I liked the movie but too many teases, Gareth Edwards tried to ape Spielberg's style from Jaws but I don't think Godzilla is the right franchise for this. If you go for that style, you have to nail the human drama/characters)

The list in the first post says 10 mins but the chart in the other post says 4 mins so I don't know why they're so different.  And yes, if the chart is correct, it is the lowest but only by a minute.

I'm curious to know Wombat's spoilery criticisms of Logan.  I personally loved it and it did not feel long to me at all.  I was shocked when I looked at the run time after leaving the theater and saw that it was 2:15.  It flew by for me.  I also think this could get some nominations as The Dark Knight did.  Will it win anything?  Probably not, but it would be nice to see it get some recognition.

I caught the Rooster joke Wombat was trying to make, but the lyric is actually, "they come to SNUFF the rooster" so that might be why it went over about as well as "reptile disfunction."

That confused me.  I'm thinking, what reference is he making?  Then he said it and I understood while facepalming.  Next time you want people to get a reference, reference it correctly wombat!

Naughty America is a legit porn company.  They do mostly role play stuff with teacher/student, boss/secretary, etc.  At least that's what I've heard...


And I have bought Overwatch loot boxes and it didn't ruin my experience at all.  If you're only playing it for progression and not for the sheer enjoyment, then you're playing for the wrong reason.

Why you down on the Twins? They had a winning record last year and they have a ton of young players that are only gonna improve this year, I'd say they are a pretty solid team, might even be a darkhorse playoff team.


Also, speaking of sweeps, the Reds swept the Phillies. That's not exactly a great team but it's nice to see them off to a good start.

Enjoy those wins, you won't be getting many more than the Phils!

LOLZ...I happen to like those shitty movies on that list, except for Elektra, but only because I've never seen it...well all of it anyways. I'm pretty tempted to see DD now too!

Hey, I have no problem with people liking crap movies as long as they can admit they're not good.  I like some bad movies, but I absolutely know they're bad.

Cheapy, The Taken King is available on the Xbox Marketplace as a $40 addon that's just TTK expansion and nothing else.  It took me a while to find, and I was about to not buy it at all because I didn't want to spend $60 on shit I already had, but I did eventually find it.  I kept clicking on everything that advertised TTK and eventually found it.  I can't give you a better guide to finding it because I seemed to stumble across it, but it does indeed exist.

I don't think there is, but the Phillies are trying their best for it.

Utley to Dodgers.







The only Phillies jersey I own is an Utley one.  I love that guy and will miss him.

Hamels auditioning for the Cubbies today?  Would hate to see him go, more than anyone but Utley from the glory years, but a no-hitter would be a hell of a way to go out.

I'm gonna miss him.  This is the way to go out though.

Eh, they're still good enough to own on 3D Blu-ray. Honestly, in the pantheon of superhero movies in my lifetime, both ASM films would certainly be in the upper 50% in terms of quality.

That's extremely high praise.  They'd definitely be in the bottom 50% for me.  But I like the FF movies so what do I know?

#12252013 What was the last concert/show you went to?

Posted by tcrash247 on 19 November 2014 - 02:49 PM

Saw Primus 2 weekends ago. Amazing!!! Just...wow.

I thought about going to the Philly show, but I don't like Willy Wonka or their interpretation of the soundtrack.  I figured it wouldn't be worth it to spend all that money to see one set of normal Primus songs, plus Philly usually gets crap setlists and that held true for the show this tour.  I need 2 hands to count the amount of times I've heard Here Come The Bastards and Southbound Pachyderm live.
