Justin’s description of Diablo 2’s remastered graphics struck a cord with me when seeing the new Age of Empires 4 look. It’s like an uncanny valley, not quite stylized and not quite realism. They tried to adopt the look from older games and the outcome is also bland and competent. Reminds me trying to localize or translate text, like if you do it literally word for word, it’s serviceable but some of the meaning and nuance is lost.

I have also been trying to work through my steam/epic backlog.

There are times when I enjoy the routine repetition MMOs can provide, but when everything else is so routine it’s nice to have novelty.

I’m still up for the MassivelyOP after dark, with Eliot as the host.

“This is MOP after dark, folks, because for some reason, when you’re in the dark, you’re having immersion.”

Listened to this while playing Diablo 3, the follower change is great, in the past a player have to choose between one bracer or another, now the follower can use one and the player use the other, and this goes for other slots too.

That Diablo Tristram theme music right into the Dawn fetuspult! You’ve weaponized nostalgia to apocalyptic levels.
