My nephew cashed out a bunch of Activision stock and made a good return.
I just slapped my forehead but he did OK today. He is hilarious. He's 30 and a vet but I still think of him as a kid. He is working on his commercial pilot license right now. Love that kid

Last time I played blizzard game was when I D3 launched. played it for a month or so.

For me they lost their grip back then. Haven't looked back since.

Yes,

When I imagine what people who fundamentally understand playing games as gamers look like ....

... these are the faces of the people who come to mind.

They have a cis heterosexual female majority there by one.

Sounds like they need some trans++they/them and/or zher/zhim representation to shake things up.

$70B sounds like more than I would have expected. The value has to be in the IPs. Microsoft could easily do something like improve absolutely nothing then just do licensing agreements.

Blizzard lost and demoralized a lot of people two or so years ago. The company would always pay employees with small salaries and very large bonuses, and the jew penny pinched those away. Most people who work at Blizzard in Irvine CA can't afford to live in Irvine.

I miss old school adventure games but there's no way a modern design team would do one justice.

He's a fool to have cashed that stock since it was going to get converted to MSFT, which has been a very happy goldmine for years now.

edit: I'm with you Haggis, King's Quest is the ****.
