Microsoft to Acquire Activision Blizzard

For me MS owning Warcraft, Diablo & Starcraft is huge.

 

Am hoping we get a new Warcraft RTS game. Reign of Chaos is one of all time favorite. Shame they stopped making more and fully moved to WoW. 🥱

 

Can't justify monthly fee for WoW. So dated and boring. They should add that WoW sub to GP or get rid of it. 

 

Diablo IV maybe in good management. I want this game to be good.

Lolz .. he’s been extremely salty since the acquisition news broke …

I wonder why? 😅

Calling out something nonsensical got one guy triggered.

If I was salty, I would be for Doom and Wolfy, not for this, haven't paid for cod since ages and played only when it was free.

Amen. Diablo IV is the only title I'm looking forward to from that stable. Played a lot of D3 on the Xbone.

 

CoD is an added bonus, that may replace the gap that Titanfall has left.

Traditional RTS genre feels like its dead. Now its MoBA and little bit of 4X stuff. 

 

4x is okay but I don't want MOBA. 😴 Never got into LoL/DOTA and those games get way too toxic to enjoy.

Same. Loved D3 despite all the issues. So much fun and so smooth to play. I even got it on PS4 to try and was surprised how well it was done for controller.

CoD big $$$ name but they got even better games in the deal. I'll happily take new Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, Starcraft, Crash, Spyro, etc,. There is so much more than just CoD in the deal. And if they put everything in GP? That's huge.

Essays are being written about how the forum is a big community of like minded members and everyone should be encouraged to speak their minds. 

 

However i guess such rules are not universal. Maybe those rules apply, only if you belong to a certain, club. 

 

It's understandable that members should not crap every thread and post personal opinions. We have a dedicated thread for that. A thread where you can post your opinions on topics related to gaming, unencumbered (without getting personal ofcourse). 

 

 

However, even if you adhere to those rules, but don't belong to the "club" mentioned in point 2, i guess you are still vulnerable to ad hominem by "admin" and also get threatened to be banned.

Some members bait- childish

 

Others bait- they become "pathetic persons" :rofl:

 

 

Xbox winning itself is an opinion with no factual basis, and thus can be construed as a "bait" in itself. 

 

 

The bias is so palpable, you can literally cut it with a knife!!

Console war is over 

plain & simple. 

Expecting Sony to release their games on PC,Cloud day 1 too now. 
 

This gen most of the core gamers will end up being part of both ecosystems. 
 

Next gen it most likely will be in a totally different shape.

Actually I am a bit worried tbh. This is because between all this console war sh*t, I was just happy doing -

Way more hyped for PSVR2 than PS5. New hardware launch is always tricky for a company and this news had put a dent on their market value too. So hoping this does not has any impact on their plans for VR.

 

I know no-one cares about VR here, but just speaking my mind 😛

Man I would love some VR, but i don't think it's going to be cheap. 

Thats another issue. It wont be cheap looking at the specs and Sony cant sell it at a higher price than PS5, so most probably might be taking a big loss/unit. Now will they take such risk in current scenario or make some changes...postpone? :(  Will have to see.

I guess they'll price it around the latest iteration of Oculus

Ya, but what about the losses? It dsnt has mass appeal(yet). And DF in their initial impressions video, compared it with headsets that cost around 1k$.

I really think a well-done VR has the power to revolutionize a lot of things, not just gaming. 

I started using 3D and AR models during my trainings a few years back, and they are legit awesome. I just can't fathom the absolute ease of learning these tech have brought in biomedical sciences in less than a decade. 

And I'm pretty sure detailed AR and VR are the next steps, with absolutely epic real life implications. 

We infact developed an anatomy app for Hololens, and while it was fun to use, I guess it was a bit finicky too. The pinch and pull gestures were not the best, but that was V1. Have to see what is being done with Holo Lens 2. 

Really excited about gaming VR too as it can bring old and new generations together. Pure family fun !

Agreed. Many regulars have stopped posting now. 

It's become pretty toxic now and I realise I'm also a part of it. 

From now, I won't be engaging in console wars. 

Personal suggestion is to nuke the ps v xbox thread. It only facilitates fighting and spills over to other threads. 

I don't really this console war thing. I mean, I do engage for a bit of banter, and its mainly with the usual suspects who act as though $ony $pon$or$ their po$t$

I find brand loyalty in general quite dumb, but the kind of loyalty we see here demonstrated where we have people defending a console they don't own is just crazy, I just don't get it. My post count has also reduced off late as threads turn into flame wars. Its fun for a while, but gets toxic....

I really hope they bring ins cross-play for D4! Have friends in the PS & PC side with whom I'd like to do some rifts!

PSVR2 sounds good but my experience with PSVR has been underwhelming. Not the hardware but I get vertigo and nausea if I use it more than 20 mins. Only tried Ace combat, RE and Astro not though.
