Oh Yahtzee, you should do Diablo Immortal. It’s a bit boring and the camera zooms in too close and also it’s the most insidious work of evil to ever be squeezed out from the black thorny anus of BeelzeBlizzard. Sounds like you already know how you feel about it, viewers. Why should I make myself miserable all week just to rephrase established general opinion through a lens of dick jokes and gradually changing the title into something irreverent. Tell you what, let’s just list off all the things I would have called it right now: Diablo Immortal, Diablo Immoral, Diablo Impoverishing, Diablo Income Statement, Diablo In A Gadda Da Vida Baby. Now let’s move on and try to spread a little much needed positivity instead. And you know what makes me feel positive: new indie games I hadn’t heard of before but really like. The Escapist has a communal list of games for review that I always try to steal the juiciest carrots from before the 3MR guys sober up on Monday morning, and Neon White caught my eye when it described itself as a first person speedrunning shooter. And I harbor a growing interest in speedrunners, mainly because I feel like someone needs to be keeping an eye on these people before there’s an unexpected Mountain Dew shortage and they burn down all our cities.
