is that diablo 3? I've been interested in trying it but I'm not really sure what it's all about, y'know? mind telling me what it's like?


that is indeed diablo 3 friend

the story’s nothing to write home about(well there are a few spots but those are mostly WHAT THE FUCK)

BUT

you get lots of gold and loot, the play’s fairly smooth, and there are runes to change up the base skills

it’s a lot of fun with friends, but if you want to experience the wonder that is the story then play on your own

also it gets a lot better with RoS, at least for late game, but if you’re fine with grinding the story then you don’t have to get it to make it playable.

On Microsoft buying Mojang…

I’m not sure I could disagree with the naysayers more.

Mojang has shown what can only be called a “great deal of confusion” about why Minecraft is and became popular. They’ve been terrible stewards of the platform and despite having the breakout hit of an entire decade they seem utterly incapable of improving their business and making it sustainable.

Microsoft acquiring them basically liberates them from needing a day-to-day business plan out to 5 years, which is good because as far as anyone could tell their entirely plan was to let Curse take all the advertising opportunities around Minecraft and monetize them, then demand profit sharing.

People say this means the “death of modded Minecraft”, which is odd to me. When has Mojang ever actually supported Modded Minecraft? They’ve always been an arms distance away from Forge (which they could have easily bought/recruited and integrated) and only tangentially started thinking about Bukkit support after other people started making money on for-pay servers.

In short, the only way Microsoft could make it worse is if they actively shut down the indie communities around Minecraft and it’s pretty clearly they’ve realized they don’t want to do that. Because what Mojang has done is effectively treaded water for years now. Since they’ve done so little, it leaves a lot of room for Microsoft’s direction to improve it.

There is no need to be upset.
