Looks like Diablo 4 currently being trailed.

They started with another apology for their Hong Kong thing, and it was equally as mealy mouthed as the first.


it makes it easy when buying games though - less of a backlog, no EA, no ActivisionBlizzard, no Ubisoft

Get this before it's inevitably taken down: I'm currently dling it via torrent. There's a followup to this tweet that has a minute or so long clip from the making-of and even that clip is fascinating.

Has the whole thing got the ridiculously loud background music running through it? Was a right pain trying to actually, you know, listen to the people saying interesting things about the game.

It's obviously not mixed properly but I never found it annoying.

There's also a half hour of HD footage of the remaster, complete with mode swapping (original to remaster, like the Monkey Island remakes) and it made me very sad. It looks excellent.

As a forum are we going to do a game of the decade thread? Feel like we've done similar ones recently...

Okay will get on it soon. Might split it between indie and non-indie lists.

Perhaps do a game of the year for 2019 first then do the decade one.

Has anyone heard of Temtem? I heard the name, but only realised today it's meant to be a new rival to Pokémon.

It appears to be online so you can play through the game with a friend. OOOOHHHHH.

You'll need to be well coordinated with your friend though, if you're going to be working in tantem. ;)

Oh, I don't have friends, just people on the internet who occasionally put up with me for a short amount of time.

That's not true. We've put up with you for a relatively long time now. ;)

Besides, friends are overrated.

Especially Chandler, he was a right dickhead. ;)

I watched the trailer of it yesterday, and looking at the store page I am curious. It's on a very positive rating, so it has definitely done something well. I might go for it.

Anyone playing Temtem? It's in early access at the moment, but I'm more than a little bit blown away. Was surprised I couldn't find anyone talking about it here. I imagine most are waiting for the Switch release. I'll probably pick it up on Switch too. :oops:

I'm pretty sure I wrote something somewhere around here (probably in currently playing), and same reaction by me. It's a beautiful experience, with some great mechanics that seem more about strategy than just pelting the strongest moves at opponents over and over.

Has anyone got the latest issue of EDGE (Resident Evil 3) by any chance? There’s a web address for an otherwise unadvertised subscription offer and I was just wondering if you could pass it along.
