Ask Gauss

Sunday and here in good old Canada it is Victoria Day weekend. What does that mean? It means it is a long weekend and there is no work tomorrow. So sorry to all those non Canadians out there who don't get Monday off. Regardless of long weekend or not though it is Sunday which means time for some questions. So let's get to it.

Do you  feel graphics are too important in games now?

Honestly there are games that have great visuals and the game is not that great or not one that I would enjoy, but I don't think the makers of those games concentrated on graphics that much. There were days when games would have amazing visuals and that would be the selling point, and the game itself was awful. I really believe those days in gaming are behind us and isn't a true excuse anymore. Now if the story or gameplay is bad no one ever thinks they focused too much on the graphics it really just is the game was bad.

When do you think we will see Heroes of the Storm Beta and release?

I really think it will be going into beta soon, and because from what I have seen from the alpha it appears to be going well. I don't expect it to be a long beta and mostly just for server strain and such. Which makes me think we may not even see a closed beta they might hop right into an Open Beta. The main thing which needs to be finished before the Beta though is the development of the ranking system. They want to do this right. They have had practice with Warcraft III, WoW, and Starcraft II to develop a matchmaking system that works, but they also need to take into account a system which will also match singles into a team system effectively. Blizzard always wants to do things the best they believe possible which is why I believe this has taken longer than many have expected.

How do you plan to spend D3's Birthday?

Farming legendaries, and hopefully ones which my DH can use.

There are the question for the week thanks to everyone who sent something in. As always couldn't be possible without your contribution. Long weekend or not enjoy what is left of it.

  1. I am thinking we will see Heroes Beta in time for the summer vacation. Just makes sense to get the most people out there.
