The State of Aether (6/6/19) - "I've Got Nothing"

Illustration for article titled The State of Aether (6/6/19) - Ive Got Nothing

It’s been a crazy week of leaks and announcements on the gaming front, but honestly, I’m not feeling it today. I’ve been sitting at this desk for about an hour and a half randomly web surfing in hopes of sparking something. I blame the Stroopwafel McFlurry I had earlier today...

Let’s just round out today’s news:

Darksiders Is Getting A Diablo-Style Spinoff

Oh Darksiders, I never knew you. Never played the original even if I should have (a Zelda-like meets horseman of the apocalypse?!). I still have Darksiders II sitting in my PS Plus queue just waiting to download, someday. Barely remembered III was a thing. And now this.

To be fair, it doesn’t look half bad. Dungeon crawlers aren’t really my thing, which is why I hesitated on Diablo III for Switch, but if this ends up being a friendlier entry point to the genre (without the awful menus), I might take a look.

Okay, I can see why this is a big deal. I just don’t know yet if I’d be interested from a newcomer’s view (Gameplay please).

Everything We Learned Today About Google Stadia [UPDATED]

The techie in me should be more excited, but the gamer in me says “stay the hell away.” Its got Google written all over it for with all the bells and caveats that come with the brand with the added dilemma of “but how will it run with my shitty Internet connection?”

Nothing about this service entices me to try it out yet or it could be I’m just not their target demographic (their founder’s edition seems to suggest otherwise). Just wake me up when I play from a web browser...

Sources: Blizzard Cancels StarCraft First-Person Shooter To Focus On Diablo 4 And Overwatch 2

Now this should be really be big news for leaks..... but I’ve got nothing. We all knew Diablo 4 is coming, but is Blizzard already throwing in the towel for Overwatch? Will this new game be a spin off or expansion?

It’s true that Overwatch has stagnated in terms of growth with very little in the way of new modes aside from cosmetics and the occasional new map/character. Don’t even get me started on the story, or lack of any real progress of expanding the narrative in the three years this game has been out in favor of branding this an esports title.

I’ve killed enough time. What were your favorite leaks/reveals this week? Anything above got you excited?
