Diablo-Papst Maurice Weber gibt sich die Ehre um mit Andre über Blizzard, Diablo Immortal und schwierige moralische Bewertungen zu sprechen. Außerdem stellen wir fest, dass wir zukünftig vielleicht nervös werden, wenn sich Bobby Kotick ein neues Paar Kolibri-Leder-Handschuhe kauft. Also, rein hypothetisch. Nur so als Gag. Vermutlich. Die von Maurice erwähnte Studie zu den Lootboxen ist übrigens diese hier: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0306460321000368 Timecodes: 00:00 - Einstieg 03:03 - Blizzards Vergangenheit 32:47 - Glücksspiel in Videospielen 48:12 - Diablo Immortal - Gameplay & Release 1:17:28 - PvP & Loot-Boxen 1:48:53 - Zusammenfassungsversuche

The news can be painful sometimes, and, well... get the medicine. It appears Activision, in its infinite wisdom, halted its developer Vicarious Visions (now Blizzard Albany) from remaking PlayStation 2-native titles Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 4 in a similar fashion it remade the PSone THPS games for PS4 in 2020. This leaves us crestfallen, wondering why such a money-hungry entity would leave such obvious cash on the table. We also get into copious news surrounding Final Fantasy XVI, DICE's stubbornness when it comes to Battlefield 2042, Creative Assembly's questionable FPS HYENAS, John Garvin's new Web3 game, various PlayStation Plus updates, and more.

Nirav and Alyssa are back on their bullshit, and are joined by Ollie to dive into Blizzard's sequel to the game that consumed all of us for hundreds of hours years ago. Is it good? Is it worth it? Is it really enough to call it a sequel? We're gonna get really in depth here to discuss our dozen or so hours with the game so far, so hang on! Reminder that Activision Blizzard is currently under investigation for a horrendous number of sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination charges as well as racial discrimination charges by several entities, many of which have already been proven as fact. Bobby Kotick needs to be removed and have everything taken from him. Due to burnout we're taking a brief hiatus. For the next month, you'll get a mini episode (around 15 mins) in your feed we've pre recorded so we can try not to die. We'll be back to our regular episodes on June 10th!
