First of all what kind of dumb website setup is that? Click to vote for a thing then get sent to some fuckin page designed for phones to confirm your vote, then afterwards it just leaves you there at the mobile page to try and figure out how to vote for the next category. I mean, I get it, we all have phones, right?
I remember thinking how much of a joke these things were when they first started happening. I feel like there were plenty of gamers who felt the same way though maybe that is just in my head. I guess if you keep doing it every year it eventually appears to have some sort of credibility to people. Though you would think after seeing their choices for some of the categories it would tarnish that credibility for some, but maybe not.
I’m slightly disappointed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance isn’t in there at all. I know it was buggy and janky at launch and still has some minor problems for some people but for me it is still like the best first person RPG I’ve ever played. It is just too fucking good. The melee system was new and enjoyable to learn especially when you finally start landing combos. How learning to read unscrambles words plus the alchemy system. I would say it is the most immersive game I’ve played.
Also, no Rimworld. I get that the gameplay isn’t really for everyone (I guess) but holy shit the music is the best music from a game since like… I don’t know, Fury? But since it was probably in EA with that music before Fury came out maybe that changes that.
I’m kind of done with Blizzard, or should I say, Activision. Now I say that while also occasionally playing Overwatch and having installed my free Destiny 2 that I’ve played for 30 minutes and may never return to? But holy shit, how are you this fuckin detatched/retarded. The funny thing to me is that like a week before Blizzcon they announced that D3 is coming to the Switch. If they had just switched the Switch announcement and the mobile game announcement there wouldn’t have been nearly as much backlash. You don’t want to stand in front of a room of people who have $2,000 computers with giant monitors, partly because of your games, and tell them that instead of announcing something they can play on their PC you have a shitty tiny version for fuckin babies they can play on their phone. Apparently a lot of WoW people are pissed about the direction of that as well. WTF Blizzard?
Also when playing Black Cow a little they have like levels and shit for some reason. I think it is the only game I have ever played where I reached level 2 and didn’t unlock something. But I guess to people who play Call of Doody this is normal and not fuckin dumb.
In the D&D campaign we fought Strahd in his castle once. One teammate fell before Strahd made his retreat but we brought him back up before it was permanent. Our druid may have inflicted some long ass negative effect on him but we won’t know until we run into him again, maybe? I’m pretty sure we can take him out kind of “easily”, though by easily I may mean eventually. I mean for me it is probably considered easily but I am the tank/main damage dealer thanks to my Sunsword of anti undead things. We ended the last session by fighting the Dusk Elf assistant that Strahd has, he was kind of terrifying as he got 3 attacks on me which is like a level 11 thing I think, we’re only 9 but there are a lot more of us. In the room next to him we found a brazier with some colored orbs around it and an hourglass, we have to figure out how it works so we can use it to find Strahd. It is possible we finish this campaign on Friday. We’ve been playing it for just about a year now which is pretty cool.
Anyway, that’s it for me.
