Will you be playing?

May 10, 2023, 10:31

Will check it out.

May 10, 2023, 10:38

It looks straight-up amazing.

Every single review I've seen has been positive. Even the usual naysayers are salivating over it.

That's either a brilliant thing or a terrible thing.

"That's either a brilliant thing or a terrible thing."

My lads played the BETA on Xbox....liked it but weren't raving.

And then there's this over the weekend:


Blizzard Entertainment20 April 2023

Help Us Gear Up for Launch During the Diablo IV Server Slam

Calling all wanderers! In preparation for the launch of Diablo IV on June 6, we must enlist your demon-cleansing services for one final task: Server Slam.

From May 12, 12 p.m.–May 14, 12 p.m. PDT, everyone can come to Sanctuary’s defense on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4—along with couch co-op for consoles and cross-play and cross-progression for all platforms—against the armies of the Burning Hells to help us test the durability of our servers.

PS: Reaper of Souls got a bit repetitive in the end.

PPS: Blizzard Games are always Next Level.

It's the open-world PVP I'm after, Draad.

I like the farming etc, but Diablo 4 incorporates an open-world area where other players/teams can't hunt you, steal your shit, and T-bag you...

Trying my best not to play the beta, but I have pre-ordered the game and damn it's tempting. Kinda spoils it for me, so I "normally" avoid all betas if I know I'm gonna buy the game anyway.

May 10, 2023, 17:18

Ja, and the Beta was apparently buggy and laggy AF.

May 11, 2023, 06:55

Draad, wouldn't it be hilarious if you, myself and Rooi jammed Diablo 4 together haha.

Must say, I'd love that.

We'll probably find out that ou Rooi isn't nearly as bad as we think he is.

If you guys do get it, I'll give my you my gamer tag and we can kill some demons together.

May 11, 2023, 09:29

I'll let you know when I get. It's a bit steep at launch...I'm on a tight budget these days.:D

As for Rooi, he enjoys being the way he is...and the reactions it generate from us, I should probably have stopped yelling at him years ago...ah well...

May 18, 2023, 10:44

The beta was ridiculously good. Game runs very smoothly. 

Can't wait for the full version on June 2nd.

May 18, 2023, 12:52

I played a bit with one of my lads...I recognized theRod Ferguson and crouching through low doorways.:D

May 18, 2023, 13:33

What class did you play? I took Rogue and Druid to 20.

May 18, 2023, 13:40

Rogue and Barbarian...and Druid/Sorcerer...anything but Necromancer...the bloody nec minions irritates me endlessly. :P

May 18, 2023, 14:31

Fuck me careful cuntyboy you might upset squeaky toy by sucking up to the enemy

We all know dentsie did that and got his arse nailed best you keep yours to the floor bro haha

May 18, 2023, 16:01're discernment isn't as good as you think...and your anger speaks volumes. 

May 19, 2023, 05:24

Are you guys playing on PC XBOX or PS? Also if you wanna play a pvp/pve almost all open world (map limited) have you tried DayZ (stand alone V.)?

Official and Custom servers allowing for PVP, PVE and RP.

May 19, 2023, 05:56

I play on Xbox. 

May 19, 2023, 05:59

"DayZ is a post-apocalyptic open-world survival game available on Xbox Game Pass for console and cloud.01 The game is not available on the Windows Game Pass app, but it can be played on the cloud.3 Xbox Game Pass is an all-you-can-download service that offers access to over 100 games, starting from $9.99/£7.99 a month on console.2 In May 2020, DayZ was one of the four games that joined Xbox Game Pass console, along with Final Fantasy IX and Red Dead Redemption 2. In May 2021, DayZ was included in the latest batch of games to be leaving Xbox Game Pass, but it is no longer leaving."

Will check it out.

May 19, 2023, 08:36

Get ready for a learning curve like no other.

May 19, 2023, 08:37


May 19, 2023, 10:42

I'm on PS5, Xavi.

Diablo will be cross-gen though so all good.

Have you seen Division Heartland? It's similar to Day Z (PVEVP, survival, 3rd person, open world).

It should be pretty good too.

May 19, 2023, 11:56

Is Red Dead Redemption 2 as good as people say... anyone played it?

May 19, 2023, 12:19

Yeah, I played it. 

Very good for what it is. 

Lots to do in that game. 

Its physics makes for some hilarious stuff...

May 19, 2023, 12:45

Shot Plum ,will try it

Have you played any of the Crysis games?

May 19, 2023, 13:03

@ DB and any one else keen. If you wanna give it a go at Dayz my gamertag is below. Xbox 


Shot Plum, might check that out.

May 19, 2023, 14:21

Lol Xavi...Metal Reign...

I think everybody played Crysis, DA. Used to make one's graphics card cry for help.

May 19, 2023, 15:07

RDR2 is the king. One of those games where you often forget about the main story and just get lost in the world.

Its physics makes for some hilarious stuff...

I suspect most of those physics stuff are in online. Never had wacky shit like that happening in the single player playthrough. Online is still pretty broken 4 years on.

May 19, 2023, 15:47

The trouble with RDR2 is it becomes very repetitive in the same way as the Far cry series and Fallouts with defined objectives to complete. 

I love DayZ for the "it's your story". The objective is just to survive. Wanna be a fisherman or farmer in a remote area. Cool. Want to hunt deer, bears or wolves, awesome. What to live as a cannibal and prey on fellow victims, you do you. 

 Just know that someone is always trying to take what you have. 

May 19, 2023, 16:11

I still enjoy RDR2 to this day. Nice world to just mess around in or walk through aimlessly even if you're done everything. Some scenery still makes you just stand and gawk. Not fond of PVP stuff myself, too many idiots online and I deal with enough of them in real life. Might check out Dayz if there's a solo or offline mode.

May 19, 2023, 17:17


There are PVE servers or no kill zone servers where if your in say the south of the land there's no PVP.

PVE servers are probably the best to learn some of the intricacies of the game like disinfecting water for consumption or keeping yourself from getting any variety of illnesses,(cholera, salmonella and septicaemia are the more dangerous ones). 

I would suggest a non boosted community PVE server 

May 19, 2023, 17:40

Cool, thanks.

May 20, 2023, 10:48

Pakie...why don't you like PVP?

Is jy bang?


May 20, 2023, 10:55

Anyway, it's nice to see we have some gamers on the site.

I know Aug dabbles too.

It's funny how we try our best to make these inclusive and diverse communities but gaming manages it so effortlessly.

In my regular group we have people from every walk of life. From PHDs to a barman, and everyone in between. In terms of ages, our oldest regular is in his 60s and the youngest is 16.

One has to give it up to the nerds. They've really done a splendid job with the gaming industry.

And long May it continue.

May 20, 2023, 11:02

Can't find any servers on Xbox ATM...

May 22, 2023, 07:31

I see C.O.D and specifically DMZ is getting quite a lot of traction

May 22, 2023, 20:44

The great reset is upon us

Tomorrow the Official servers across platforms are wiping for the 1.23 update. 

Day 0

Sep 05, 2023, 17:22

So Plum, is it worth it? Is it fun?...the game, the story etc, not only the open world portion.

Sep 05, 2023, 19:52

Was reading thru your thread and so many ads. Switched to Brave browser and ads gone. No ads on youtube too. 

Sep 06, 2023, 05:51

I'm on Brave on the phone and's quite a shock coming on here with Chrome every now and then.

Sep 06, 2023, 16:28

Ping...Plum...or Rooi...or anyone else playing this....

Sep 06, 2023, 16:53

I Played 1, loved II because of the LAN co-op...Liked 3 and it's expansions with 4P couch co-op...I see IV is only 2P couch co-op, but 2 x 2 couch co-op = 4P, so I'm kinda interested,  but my lads think it's a bit mehhh!!

Sep 06, 2023, 17:55

Draad, it's very good.

The only problem I had is that at endgame their solution for difficulty was CC(crowd control).

So 90% of one's deaths are basically you lose control of your character and then get ganked.

But it only becomes a problem in deep endgame dungeons.

I'm giving it break for a season until they sort out the CC business.

Otherwise, no real complaints.

You wanna start playing it?

Edit: the story is about the best there had been for a long time.

Sep 06, 2023, 18:21

Ja, I kinda feel like getting it...some RnR with the boys...

Sep 07, 2023, 04:38

You'll enjoy it, I'm sure.

Just don't play Barb.

Sorcerer and Necromancer are probably the best classes....with Necromancer being broken string but a bit slow.

Sep 07, 2023, 04:46

If you play MP, Nec makes the screen too busy for my liking.

Sep 07, 2023, 05:34

Nah, Bonespear without any skeletons. That's the strongest Nec build.

I'm also not a fan of the 10 millions skellies running around everywhere.

But if you do play it, take the story slow and watch all the cutscenes. It's ridiculous how good they did it.

Sep 07, 2023, 11:27

Blizzard rules! Been a fan since Warcraft II...actually way before that... always next level...since the start!

Sep 07, 2023, 15:48

Sh!t, the price went up R350 since Sunday.:dizzy:...both here and the US store.

Sep 09, 2023, 12:10

Hey, what's wrong with Barbarians? of my favorite D&D characters was a barbarian!
