Last week at Blizzcon Blizzard announced a bunch of new games, including a new, darker Diablo 4 and an presented an interesting new approach to sequels with Overwatch 2. We also learned that Cliff is incapable of saying Diablo on the first try.
Also this week:
- We want to give a huge shoutout to all of the folks who supported us and played with us this weekend for Extra Life
- You could make up to $10k (ethically) hacking Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA 4
- The new Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 is now available for purchase
- Apex Legends has a firing range and a temporary Duos mode now
What We're Playing
Cliff: Killer Queen Black, Aqua Lungers, CD-Run, Hot Shot Burn
Dylan: Luigi's Mansion 3
Vinny: What are your top 3 video game franchises?
JoeColeslaw: What do you think about games as services just expanding the game themselves and not go into the sequel territory. For example, instead of a making The Division 2, just sell a $60 expansion to the game and keep the original world to go back to within the same ecosystem. Instead of spending three years to expand Destiny 2, just sell an expansion. Do you think in this economy and environment, that would work out better? How far could you see this business model going if it takes off in the first place?
Mister Polite: Recently I tried to show my kids some classic games. Some games are still playable and enjoyable today (Ms. Pacman, Donkey Kong Jr., Mario, Zelda, etc...), but my goodness Goldeneye did not age well at all. Is there a game (movie, television, or board game) that you picked up years later that ruins your nostalgia for it?
Turndwn4wut: What current gen games could you see 20 years from now have people wondering, what the hell were those people thinking
IconArising: Make a band consisting of 4 video game characters. What genre are they? Who's playing bass, electric guitar, drums, and singing? Feel free to add another member if you like.
