Making some serious progress in Tears of the Kingdom and finishing up Final Fantasy XVI.

Trying to get things squared away, Remnant 2 come out soon and I'm excited about that.

Make a backup, but yes. The new DynamicFPS mod from Chucksfeedandseed is a game changer, allows resolution to be scaled natively as opposed to using the Yuzu scaler. Way, way better image quality and fixes issues like the Sky Islands being weird.

I'm not super feeling it either. Not horrible looking, but I expected a lot more. I know people get angry with the POE comps and Diablo, but this would be a pretty weak POE league and I was expecting something a lot more in line with the more ambitious POE offerings for the first season.

Don't want to be doomer and I already had a great time/got value out of the game, but there's a lot D4 needs for me to continue to have a great time with it and this didn't really move the needle. I'll probably check it out and see if there's any cool builds to play with the hearts, but I'm not overly excited about what has been shown. Hopefully the boss is cool.

Would love to see more X style games personally, but I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Capcom take a big risk and try to modernize the franchise too. Was always intrigued by the Maverick Hunter gameplay footage personally although I know it's somewhat polarizing.

Honestly, at this point anything that ins't a mobile cash grab game would be fun to dream on at least!

Hopefully finishing Final Fantasy XVI. Mixing in some TOTK too, fell off that one a bit because I degen'd my way to 100 in Diablo 4. Getting back into it has been really fun.

Ubisoft’s XIM detection sees “major reduction” in Rainbow Six Siege cheaters (www.theverge.com)

Ubisoft’s MouseTrap system for detecting cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege is already seeing results. Cheaters use devices like XIM to spoof controller inputs, and MouseTrap has now caused a “major reduction” of more than 70 percent in the amount of mouse and keyboard users on consoles....

I sincerely hope this works as well as this article says it does and Ubi shares the technology with other games. XIM(Cronus stuff even more so honestly someone figure that one out plz) is a plague on a few games I play.

Interested to see how build altering the hearts will be. Definitely feel like build variety was a weak point of vanilla D4 so anything that opens up more possibilities is welcome.

Renown stuff is a pretty big W. Nice to see them respond to feedback.

Interested to see what they have on offer!

Never played a Diablo 3 season, but based on what I heard those were fairly well received at the end. They've said they want Diablo 4 seasons to be an even bigger deal.

Not sure what to expect, but more to do would be cool. Path of Exile does a great job adding to the endgame with its leagues so something like that would be awesome.

Exotic Weapon Catalysts: Quests, Puzzles, Random Drops, or something else?

My clan finally got around to doing a catalyst run for Touch of Malice, and even though the weapon itself is very niche, we had a blast figuring out the puzzle, repeatedly dunking on the final statue, and being rewarded with the catalyst. I’m actually motivated to use the gun now and finish the catalyst, while other catalysts...

Think a mix of things is ideal. I like the specific stuff for raid weapons. Adds some flavor to the process and makes it feel more special. Can be a pain to find a group willing to do the extra stuff during a run though, so a bit of a tradeoff there but worth what the game gets out of it IMO.

Ornstein and Smough on the 1.0 version of Dark Souls in 2011 when I was very bad at Dark Souls and video games in general. In the DLC Hawkeye Gough has some line about how hunting the dragons teased out his dearest emotions and that's truly how I felt about my O&S experience. They kicked the ever loving shit out of me so many times. I remember finally scoring the kill in spite of the controller nearly falling out of my hands due to sweat at like 4 AM. Reacted a bit too loud, woke up my girlfriend (now wife haha). Just one of those moments that I will always remember.

Besides that, mostly all the Destiny raids haha. The Day 1 raiding experience in Destiny is just such a unique and awesome thing. Nothing quite like problem solving with a group of friends. Deep Stone Crypt is probably the most memorable of such experienced to me, first time the group I play with tried a Day 1 raid and completing it just gave me such a crazy high.

Uncharacteristically, I really like what they did in the draft. Gonzalez is a blue chip talent and we're already hearing a lot of buzz about Marte Mapu who seems like he's going to be an exciting chess piece.

Like what I've heard about BoB taking charge of the offense in camp. Just seems like a very different vibe on that side of the ball this offseason.

7.5 seems pretty fair to me, maybe lower end of fair but I'm a fan so I'm always going to hope for more haha. It's going to be very tough to compete in this division and while I doubt any BB coached team will ever be totally sorry, but it's going to be tough.

I'm just mostly hoping for answers to questions and progress this year. Feels like one of those "assess what direction things are going in" type years. If Mac balls out with an actual offensive coaching staff and we're frisky in the division, we build off of that. If Mac fails to show appreciable progress, might be time to tear some things down and go for a proper rebuild. Be interesting to see.

It's quite good. Definitely referential, but it has enough wiggle with some of the thematic stuff that it can get away with it. Will be cool to see where the stuff with "feeling springs reacting" leads to.

Gameplay felt more than serviceable but not quite on the level of a From Software title in the slice we played. More than good enough though. Excited for the full release.

also Jack Jones a month ago tweeting at Ja Morant

you truly cannot make this up lol

dude is super talented and it showed last year but just cannot stop messing up. Was a 5 star recruit going into USC and got kicked out. Suspended by Patriots at the end of last year in spite of being arguably their best defensive back. Sitting on a winning hand but cannot get out of his own way.

bonus points: he also tweeted at Ja Morant last month calling him an idiot for putting social media clout and guns over his career lol
