OW2 was the PvE mode, which is no longer going to be released.

What we have is reworked OW, with a store.  OW 1.1, or 1.5 if you're feeling generous.  With a worse matchmaker.

I can't speak to the gameplay experience too much, as swinging from "games you can't lose" to "games you can't win" so that the matchmaker can enforce a 50/50 win/loss rate really impacted my ability to enjoy the game and the gameplay.

Not to mention that Push was a terrible fucking game mode.  Absolute garbage that's only somewhat forgivable because it replaced 2CP, which was easily worse.

Shame, really.

And yes, I no longer play OW.

OW2 gameplay is mediocre at best. I used to enjoy it now and then when it was the original game, but I just don't know why it feels bad, so I don't play it. The monetisation hasn't helped. It's not 2K Games level of abusive relationship, but not for want of trying. TBH, I just don't play Blizzard games anymore. I look fondly at Starcraft/Starcraft 2, cry every time I look at the hot mess that they made of WC3, HoTS is dead, I have D2 Reforged that I've never actually played, D3 I'm tempted by, WoW/Classic is just not worth the monthly fee - if they went F2P along the lines of Guild Wars 2 I might be more interested for nostalgia's sake. I'm sure that D4 will be good, but I just can't work up the energy to buy it. I really do feel that Blizzard has lost it's way.

I generally agree with you Setanta, but D2R is excellent.

I'm really not sure why I haven't played it. I loved the original version and played it to death. I have bought D2R on both PC and the Switch. I think it's just my general disappointment in Blizzard as a company that is holding me back.

I may dig it out and take it for a drive... except I have Zelda and a couple of other games demanding time... and the new season of Destint 2 begins tomorrow.

You can't blame disdain for Blizzard then want to play an Activision game. why so serious?

The gameplay of Overwatch 2 is an improved Overwatch 1. That one was good, this one is better thanks to less Crowd Control, one less character per match, and the role queue enforcing 2 support, 2dps, 1 tank.
Everything else outside of gameplay has for the most part been a regression.

I hope they get it right. Didn't CCP have the rights to this at some point, and nearly broke EvE from neglect as a result?

CCP owned White Wolf and was working on an MMO, I think?  Bloodlines 2 wasn't their project, though.

Have we got a place for sharing legitimately acquired keys? I've got a spare key for Yakuza: Like A Dragon from Humble Choice that I can PM to anyone who's basically not a bot.

Sometimes they get tossed in Discord, but I'll take it if you've still got it.
