    Johnny Cage's FATALITY in Mortal Kombat 11 is great.

    Don't watch at work, though.

    Is it just me, or should "WoW Classic" have been extremely easy to make happen? They seem to be dragging it out, and at first I thought to myself, "yeah that makes sense, they're testing the hell out of it to make sure it has dat Blizzard™ polish." But upon further reflection... maybe they lost the source code or whatever, but there's no need to recreate it from scratch. The shitty backend that couldn't handle >100 people in a zone is not what people are after here.

    1. Start with the game in its current state. Benefit from security/stability patches going forward, because you're branching the game as it exists today.
    2. Subtract features. Disable the minimap that completes quests for you. Remove the dungeon finder. Make the retro player models the default option.
    3. Go back to patch notes and design docs, and reconstruct all the class skills as they existed in 1.12 -- this is the only challenging part.

    And I mean, damn, that's it. Right? Whatever. r/showerthoughts

    I could also be completely wrong about what the masses are looking for. Maybe if they put out WoW Classic and wallwalking doesn't work, people will riot in the streets.

    EDIT: Pretty neat though, looks like they do intend to progress through the whole Ahn'Qiraj War Effort thing. That strikes me as tougher to implement.

    There's a new game mode in Fortnite that rolls out today or tomorrow called "The Floor is Lava." It is exactly what you think. Over time, the whole map gets flooded with murderous lava and it's a battle to the sky to see who wins! Squeeee!

    Sounds like it's basically a more creative way to shrink the map (instead of just a circle). What happens if you're stuck at the top of a hill that isn't the tallest hill, though? You just wait to die?

    You can always build.

    I had a realization the other day. The game I pitched to some of you a few years ago that I wanted to play, but didn't know how to make. It was a game where teams built bases that were destructible and defended them against invaders on the other team and you basically fought each other's bases til one team won.

    It was basically Fortnite. I had the idea for Fortnite years ago and now I'm not rich because I have the wrong skill set.

    Shit.

    The world is full of people with big ideas and insufficient skills or resources to implement anything.

    Hell, even Epic didn't "have the idea" so much as they had a good engine and shamelessly ripped off PUBG.

    Materials like Epic's got are worth many billions more than ideas.

    And then there's people like me, who have some of the practical skills required, but no ideas at all.
