To this day, I think about the ending cinematic in Diablo.
If for some reason I can't play any of my stable of current games — be it World of Warcraft or Diablo 4 or Starfield or Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty or Baldur's Gate 3 -- I always have something to fall back on.
With the new Phantom Liberty expansion coming to Cyberpunk 2077 alongside a free 2.0 update to the base game for everyone, it's fair to say that the game is getting a significant overhaul.
With Diablo 4 on the horizon, I find myself gripped by the certainty that if I read a negative review, or even a hundred negative reviews, my own experience playing the game in the Early Access, Open Beta, and Server Slam periods means that I know that those reviews would not convince me.
I can become more or less interested in a game based entirely on its story.
Game studio CD Projekt Red -- often abbreviated as CDPR by their many fans -- made a low key possible announcement of a huge slate of upcoming video games from their popular Witcher and Cyberpunk IPs, plus a few completely new surprises.
I tend to be a "deep-dive binge" kind of gamer.
Whenever a transmog system is introduced into one of the many games I play, I immediately look at it and debate whether or not it would be a good fit for World of Warcraft, the game that taught me how much I love transmog.
I'm not exactly ashamed of the fact that as soon as I saw a form of transmog was making it to Cyberpunk 2077 I was already downloading the patch before the folks in our Discord could start to ask me questions about it.
I really wanted to like Brutal Legend.
