I’ve spent a while taking part in Diablo IV, initially with the intention of giving it a full evaluate. However to be trustworthy, I’m having an excessive amount of enjoyable muddling via it at a leisurely tempo. By the point I’m review-ready, it’ll be time to get caught into Baldur’s Gate 3 (and talking of, having Closing Fantasy XVI on my PS5 doesn’t do wonders for my consideration span both). As a substitute, I’ve been following the continued saga of Diablo IV’s newest patch — and it’s been a wild journey.

First patch 1.1.0 got here out and obliterated any sense of oomph gamers had, after which got here a number of days of Blizzard apologies and guarantees of a repair. Blizzard lastly introduced patch 1.1.1 at the moment, which launches on August 8. I doubt that can be an finish to the drama, however it’s at the least been enjoyable watching the journey to get up to now.

In different information, Sony has introduced that PlayStation 5 has bought over 40 million models, which is fairly spectacular when you think about the pandemic-era provide chain points it had in the course of the pandemic. I’d be fascinated about seeing how the software program gross sales shake out within the subsequent monetary report, because the earlier one confirmed that these had been just a little cool in contrast with the {hardware} facet of issues. It appears Xbox is having an inverted downside, the place its {hardware} gross sales are down however its video games and Recreation Cross numbers are up.

I’m nonetheless taking part in catch-up with Closing Fantasy XVI, however I’m hoping to take a crack at Disney Phantasm Island this weekend. This yr has been a humiliation of riches, truthfully. I’m having to confront the likelihood that I can’t play all the brand new video games that I need to play, as I lack each the time and financial sources to get to all the pieces. However I promise to at the least give the massive RPGs — Diablo IV, Closing Fantasy XVI and Baldur’s Gate 3, to call the newest ones — sufficient time to get the total expertise.
