He's also a massive, massive twat of a person.

But his brand is capitalising on gamer rage, so sure, as long as companies keep doing shitty things he'll be there, to soak up the clicks and bask in his role as de facto champion of gamers' rights.

(In before "it's all a persona, you got worked m8.")

Totally get you. He's a heck of a showman. He's just moved to Philly to manage  Ryse Wrestling.

You just going to leave that there then without any explanation?

Frankly, I think your opinion on him being a 'twat' is explained by your last sentence and is highly questionable. Has he ruined your gaming experience, m8?

Since he's apparently your dad, I think I'd better.

I've found him to be far too happy to jump on anything where China is involved, I had to stop following as that's all he was attacking for a while. Seemed like he has a proper hate hard-on for the country.

Definitely thinking that, to an even greater extent than in Diablo 2, playing as a Necromancer is Easy Mode. I'm on Act 3, and in most Diablo games I'd have spammed potions and died a few times by now, but I've not died once, and I honestly don't think my life bar has been less than half full at any point. Projectile magic + a bunch of skeleton mates is the way to go.

Witch Doctor was the same for me, I think any class that can summon makes the game trivially easy. I put the game down because of the lack of challenge, I'll probably start again on Hardcore with someone else.

Witch Doctor was my second choice, just for being an unusual character class for a mainstream game. If I do a second playthrough, it will be on Hardcore or whatever Seasonal is, and probably as a Barbarian to mix it up.

I'm mostly enjoying the same dynamic as Diablo 2, in which everyone talks to me about the perils of black magic, and the evils of the dead walking again, while I'm a fucking necromancer with a bunch of skeletons and some kind of horrible homunculus trailing behind me. My other companion is a Templar, so I'm imagining it like a D&D buddy cop movie.

I really enjoyed Season 1 of the new Modern Warfare game

But today's the debut of season 2 and now includes a 50gig update.... Bloody crazy!!

Probably because I’m old, but I really don’t know anything about the modern thing of games having episodes. Is it a case of the game being quite limited at launch and so they add content over time?

It's usually for free games, right? The most obvious example is Fortnite- where a change in season means amendments to the map (which is pretty cool tbf), removal and adding of certain weapons, new game modes and new skins.

Sometimes it'll be one of those Telltale RPGs, or something like Life Is Strange, where they hope they can get you hooked with the first free episode and then sell you the rest of the game piece by piece. It can also theoretically be less strain on the devs as rather than having to get the full game done by a certain point they can split the workload.

Yeah it's a good way for a game to bring in a bit more dough over it's lifetime than it would if say released all as one. It also allows the developer to tweak it and remove/add stuff. Something like Life is Strange would be a hard sell at £60 but over the course of 1-2 years it'll end up costing that in piece meal.

Getting stuck in to Horizon Zero Dawn. It's a stunning game and I'm dighing the story so far but I bloody hate that navigational bar that it has. Like AC Odyssey and Fallout 4 I tend to spend more time looking at that than the great environment.

That’s useful, thanks. I just read the latest Call of Duty has a new season coming out, which is why I thought to ask.
