It's the late 90's (more specifically, I think 1999). I'm a young, naive 24-year old. I've had a couple of tattoos (once on my sternum at Uni, and one on my neck at the only tattoo parlour in Reading...Ians, near Chatham Street). I've got some piercings (my tongue, eyebrow, and one nipple (twice, brielfy...)).
So Diablo Immortals is smashing records left and right unfortunately they are records for worst user score with it currently in the top 5 of the worse scored games of all time on metacritic.
I wasn't expecting much from this late season April fools joke given it was NetEase and Blizzard two terrible companies their powers combined for double awful mobile game nonsense.
But what has come out is worse than most people even guessed at.
Vampire Survivor is a rogue-lite ... wait come back it's good ... if you like that sort of thing.
It sort of came out of nowhere and went from a little known extremely cheap game (think it's $2.50 at the moment) to being all over the blogosphere the youtubs the twitchers and tictacs
On the surface a very simple game you control a vampire survivor through a series of environments with their own set of enemies bosses and environmental pecularities and just have to survive collecting power ups by gathering the gems enemies drop.
I'm not really a Dark souls person I find the gameplay mechanics somewhat frustrating the fail Die fail die fail die fail die maybe succeed die mechanic gets grating after a while and every time I've tried one of these games I've usually bounced off it fairly quickly. Even some of the dark souls like often get annoying the most recent God of War or the Jedi Fallen Order being notable examples.
I've not done New Year Resolutions for last year...didn't seem much point due to the huge amount of un-certainty. I did end up ticking off most of my 2020 resolutions, albeit not to the initial timescales...global pandemics will do that to you!
For me, 2022 will be about adapting to the "new normal". I've lost a commute, and gained a dog, for starters.
Played a bit of this just to try it out.
Their interface is still as shit as it was the first time through. Incredibly difficult to work out what is what and how things work the various module controls for stuff on the drillship are not really explained and because of the design half the time they are positioned behind other stuff.
I've been using GoPro's for a long time now. First one I owned was the original GoPro Hero HD (released in 2010, capable of 1080p/30, which was unbelievable at the time, most portable cameras were at 640p resolution). I still use a GoPro 5 as a webcam, and have a couple of Sessions (Still my favourite form-factor) for ad-hoc static/mounted images. My normal "go-to" cameras are a GoPro 7 Black and a GoPro Max (360 camera). I still really rate the hardware, however the company have been falling further and further behind on software and connectivity.
I was a huge fan of Diablo 2 back in the day. I can remember when it came out and I was working a summer job at what was then videologic (now imagination technologies) and one of the other summer interns and I playing it multiplayer a lot in our breaks (even one week when the boss was out basically for the whole week :D). So there's a lot of nostaligia there, I also like the game type I've put a lot of hours into Diablo 3 and Path of Exile and Torchlight and Grim Dawn and the various other more modern versions of the ARPG genre.
