The economic model of Diablo Immortal has been strongly criticized

Diablo Immortal was released on June 2 on mobile. If this is already a huge success, the game is also massacred for the “Pay to win” economic model. Currently, the game boasts a user score of 0.7 on Metacritic for this exact reason. In addition, the game is banned in several countries, namely Belgium and the Netherlands. For good reason, lootboxes are banned in both territories. “It’s illegal to try to circumvent these bans”, a Blizzard employee added on Reddit. It is better not to try to circumvent the system on a VPN for example. Belgium ruled lootboxes illegal in 2018 because they violated gambling laws. In the Netherlands, we remember the EA scandal being fined for its FUT packs by FIFA.

Previously, Blizzard was content to remove loot box systems from Belgian versions of its games, such as Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm. Choosing not to sell Diablo Immortal in Belgium and the Netherlands could be a sign of the presence of all of these game systems. Players have criticized Diablo Immortal for buying so -called legendary emblems and gems. These gems are one of the three pillars of character development, along with regular gear and experience levels. In addition, they determine progress at the end of the game

Recently; a YouTuber calculated how much it would cost to raise Legendary Gems on a Diablo Immortal character, and the amount would be more than six figures. According to scholarly calculations on the YouTube channel Bellular News, Raising a character costs and is no less than US $ 110,000 in the current economy of the game. In detail, the system is often very chaotic. Legendary Gems are not even guaranteed to pay players, as they are randomly assigned to purchase loot boxes.

On the side of the press, the Metascore is very good. It stands at 81%, even though so few tests are currently available. The problem of loot boxes has to be chosen. “If the simple in-game purchase is more cosmetic, the game will just grow,” Ouest France said. “The Pay to Win aspect is likely to shock most invested players” as our colleagues from MGG put it. It’s only up to you if you want to start the adventure.


The end of the Fortnite era

After a few days of mockery, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends over the weekend. The effect happened on Saturday night exactly. A long maintenance occurred. Point Zéro headed in the other direction. The IO forces have been exhausted. The map has been updated, and we are far from the tensions between the Seven and the Imaginary Order even if there is a new threat of weight. As always, this Relax season comes with a major update that adds locations, weapons, events, skins, quests, and new battle passes.

The West on the map now has giant mushrooms, caves, geysers, all in purple. A somewhat dreamy atmosphere for this place, brought by Tree of Reality which also offers interiors, and which, through its “powers”, allows players to ride and shoot from mountains like of pigs and wolves. Since the weather is also party time, the Cave has become a nightclubwhile the pinnacle of comfort is now occupied by an exciting ride The Epic doesn’t forget the daily quest as well as the new Battle Pass that especially features … Darth Vader!

Players facing Sonic Frontiers

Ridiculed and then announced in December, Sonic Frontiers waited until June 2022 to finally show itself. The new blue hedgehog adventure, which takes place in an open world, has, for the first time, illustrated gameplay, and it didn’t completely appeal to the players. During the presentations, we discovered vast environments with many strange structures, green fields, and most of all a Sonic running, jumping, rolling and sliding everywhere. Without the improvements, Sonic admits it takes a little time to speed up, but then we see him running the place.

We also have a little preview of the fights where Sonic faces strange robotic creatures. He rolls, rushes his opponents and uses various techniques to defeat them. All in all, we got a real look at the game, however, it was far from convincing the public and the fans. While the title is still in progress, the players quickly expressed their anger. Aside from the clipping, which shows decorative elements at more or less distant distances, fans criticized the lack of artistic direction in the surroundings, structures being “placed there” without any obvious logic. , feelings of limited speed, and feel like they’ve seen Sonic move from one point of interest to another in a game with a “dated” structure.

Here’s what we read specifically in the comments: “Sonic Frontiers seems to automatically have an open world game”. “Based on this video, I’m worried about Sonic Frontiers. I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting five years for it, and I’m not happy. I feel like, go there, do it.” Broadcasting the video presentation of the fights never helped matters, as the negative opinions abounded., points out among other things their “softness” and the rigidity of the animations. Overall, the players seemed a bit worried, even if they were short bits, likely to get somewhere early in the game.

To try to change things, Fans started with the hashtag #DelaySonicFrontiers (by French Reportez Sonic Frontiers), which was taken several thousand times on Twitter. Fans are hoping to hear from SEGA, for a number of reasons. There is a case in the movie Sonic. Remember the release of the first trailer for the feature film, the appearance of the blue hedgehog sparked so many protests that the design was completely changed. Case to follow.

The soap opera Abandoned

A large Gamespot investigation revealed that Abandoned did not exist, and painted a terrifying picture of the creator. As of April 2020, many players are viewing this game as the secret return of the Silent Hill saga or the next game by Hideo Kojima. The title eventually suffered internet outrage due to risky communication and multiple media flops. From broken promises to catastrophic technical bugs, especially during the launch of his “experience” on the PlayStation 5, director Hasan Kahraman’s apology was not enough to convince the public.

GameSpot reviewed the project, before concluding that Abandoned was ultimately just a big lie. In exchange for access to “screenshots, animations, and even a page of the game’s story line,” members of a Discord team must sign a confidentiality agreement. The director “promised a lot, including paid work to fans, but gave very little,” the site claims. The latter revealed that over the past few months, the idea behind the project hasn’t stopped changing … from vampires to a cult story. Simply put, Hasan Kahraman has no idea where he is going. Even worse, there is no concrete evidence of the existence of the game. Kahraman will wait for the investment to make the game prologue, which is also far from over.

Morbius back in theaters

Morbius made an unexpected return to U.S. theaters and once again fell out. The film grossed just US $ 85,000 on Friday after returning to more than 1,000 theaters, bringing the national total to 73.6 million dollars … information reported by Forbes. Morbius, released on April 1, 2022, follows the adventures of Michael Morbius, a renowned scientist affected by a blood disease he wanted to get rid of. During his research, he discovered that the solution to this problem involved a species of vampire bat. Of course, the serum test in international waters went wrong and the scientist was left with the powers and needs of the vampiric creature.

Presented by some critics as “the worst Marvel movie before Venom: Let There Be Carnage”, Morbius inherited the 17% mark of Rotten Tomatoes. The reviews are summed up in these words: ‘Cursed by uninspired effects, lazy performances and a story bordering on nonsense, this nonsense is a futile attempt to be real Morbius. On social networks, we see some memes inventing lines not in the film or imagining the sequel to Morbius in Morbius to Morbi way.

Even Jared Leto, less known for his sense of humor, posted a video on Twitter that made Morbius laugh and the line went viral: “It’s Morbin ‘time.” This is a reference to “Morphin Time” by Power Rangers, which makes Internet users happy. Jared Leto pretends to be reading a secret script … that’s in a Morbius 2 called “It’s Time for Morbin!”. In the euphoria of time and in general good mood, Sony immediately thought that giving the film a chance and organizing a new theatrical release was a good idea. Obviously that wasn’t the best idea. At the same time, the timing is not in favor of Morbius, Top Gun: Maverick being released on May 27th. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has just over $ 900 million in total revenue, is another thorn in Morbius ’side.
