If you don’t like Diablo III try Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor – Martyr

Diablo is a great game no doubt about that, but it's not for everyone. It's very grindy and complex, and requires huge dedication. Is Warhammer 40k: Inquisition Martyr any different?

Been playing it a lot. While I like the devs' decision to present a different gameplay style and design, it doesn't work that well imo. The short missions, bland loot, the power level system, boring skilltree, grind for fate points-all kind of work against the game. Maybe that's why the ARPG formula hasn't changed much since the 90s.

Could be. I understand how all that may be a problem for someone but these things also make this game more accessible for casual players and those of us with not as much time on our hands.

I don't see why companies don't try shaking things up a bit by changing the setting. A mech based looting ARPG could be pretty dang awesome . . . something like Custom Robo meets Diablo. Or maybe a pirate based one, where you battle on land as a pirate, but also at sea on your ship, and you collect loot and level up both your ship and your character. Feels like so many ARPGs stick to a similar tone and setting.

Wow that actually would be amazing. I think problem is that arpgs don't sell. They were kind of killed by Mobas as they had similar gameplay, and style just were multiplayer and free. Only one that still is being played is diablo, so every company is trying to copy that formula. Fact that it worked for Path of Exile, makes even more people want to copy them.

Nevermind... just play diablo 3

Cmv382162d ago

I would try it, but it keeps getting delayed on console lol

MichaelPyre2162d ago

Ohh yeah that's true. Wonder what's the deal with that. Like it has full controller support on pc already. But it is good looking game so they might have problems with the port

Valve facing £656,000,000 lawsuit over claims Steam is ripping off players

The owner of Steam has been accused of overcharging 14 million PC gamers in the UK and 'shutting out' competition in a new lawsuit.

Overcharging? Have these people never heard of sales?

just_looken8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

"Valve, the owner of Steam, is being sued for £656m over claims it is abusing its dominant market position to overcharge players.

The collective action claim has been filed with the UK’s Competition Appeal Tribunal by digital rights campaigner Vicki Shotbolt.

In the lawsuit, Shotbolt accuses Valve of ‘shutting out’ competition when it comes to buying PC games and DLC, which has led to 14m people in the UK being overcharged for PC games as a result.

The claim is seeking up to £44 compensation for every UK player who has bought a PC game or add-on content from June 5, 2018."

So they are trying to take the apple/sony/xbox approach were there is only one store without ever using a pc for gaming.

Anyone with a ounce of pc gaming knowledge knows steam did nothing when competition and the launcher war happened but now every publisher that had there own launcher with games only available on that platform are slowing coming back to steam.

This "lawsuit" should be directed to launcher's like rockstar's as they have games only available on there like the gta collection or ubisoft with xdefiant heck epic launcher exclusive games. There is no grounds in which steam has locked down content to there platform except there own games though there are disc versions of those except half life alex.

Pc players still have the best choice on game buying with multiple launcher's and site that offers keys like my fav humble bundle but on the same platform we have the worst drm along with those 3rd part launcher's that need to run in the background.

How about suing them for the game files that the customer should own?

Goodguy017h ago

Steam allows 3rd party apps (which I hate) and...we all know that egs is the one that keeps buying exclusivity lol. A lot of devs and consumers rely on steam hence it's very heavy support.

paulust20026h ago

If I get 44 pound from them I'll only be spending it in the steam store...fucking absurd ..one of the most ethical companies out there and largely due to them not being a public offering imo

Obsidian CEO responds to worries Xbox could shut them down, too: 'I'm not worried about tomorrow'

A gray cloud loomed over this year's big summer game showcases: Over 16,000 game developers have lost their jobs since 2023, many of whom were casualties of success at companies that reported huge profits this year. One of the largest cost cutters has been Xbox, which in January cut 1,900 jobs at Activision Blizzard and in May shut down four studios: Tango Gameworks, Arkane Austin, Alpha Dog Games, and Roundhouse Games. The closure of Tango was taken especially hard, as the studio was still basking in the light of Hi-Fi Rush, a critical and commercial success by all of Microsoft's metrics.
