    What? No Hairy Pottery Scheme Park? No 'He who shall not be named' Bibles? in Motel 6 dressers?
    No [franchised] MudBlood Banks? I guess I'll go back to investing in Star Whores the series that never stops.

    No thanks. Shitty franchise made by a shitty person. Keep it far away from me.

    studios want something they know will sell, not this particular case but things like SBFBB:R work because you are appealing to
    -fans of the old game
    -old fans of spongebob who did not play the old game
    -new fans of spongebob who did not play the old game
    not much of a harry potter fan, but its still pretty big, i'm amazed Rowling did not try to make more sequels, potterheads are really just as crazy as weebs and will buy all things harry potter
    mobile makes me sad for this exaxt reason, there is potential, but its ruined by the playstore and appstore being full of shovelware, developers having aggresive monetization schemes, etc. the switch, amazon fire tv/fire stick, and nvidia shield basically run on mobile chipsets, so the power is there, its just wasted to run shit like candy crush. edit: i got distracted, but what i actually wanted to say is that most mobile game's weakness is being on mobile, so good concepts either go to waste (i think the clash of clans setting would be pretty good for a budget rts) or end up being better executed on pc or console (horizon chase on android and ios and horizon chase turbo on pc, ps4 and switch)

    J.K. Still pushing out more Harry Potter content? Her 60 Million dollar net worth isn't enough?

    I'll still get the game anyway, like every other human being ever, give the game a bad review, but she would of already got a shit load of money.

    All I'm saying is that if I was Voldemort, I would have won. Everyone in that universe is incompetent. Quiddich is a such an easy sport to rig with broken rules that nobody takes advantage of. Professor McGonagall is likely the smartest person in the series and even then she makes dumb decisions.

    They decide to take 11 year old kids and sort them into groups of "Brave" "Smart" Evil" and "Other."

    And you know what?

    I fucking LOVE IT.

    True though. The franchise is good, but the creator, I hate her. F*** transphobic people.

    Just give us a Harry Potter MMO with frequently free content updates and a super deep (basically endless) character creation tool.

    every single person or corporation with a big franchise does that, i dont see how its any different from nintendo making more marios and zeldas, just to name one of multiple examples, they do it because they know people will buy it, if people didnt buy it, they wouldnt make more

    Wonder if this is really the time to release something Harry Potter related. After Rowling's comments, I'm sure there'll be people trying to boycott this one. But then again, controversial games such as Sword & Shield and Last of Us 2 sold remarkably well, so...

    Always

    If I can pirate this game, I will because I am interested in seeing how it turns out. If I can't pirate it, then I won't even look at it. I won't be sending even a penny towards that TERF trash.

    this game was announced at E3 last year (2019). It and the magic gathering rpg some how were overlooked and forgotten about by those who initially did pay attention to them.

    People seem really upset at the author. What goes there? I went looking and
    https://www.glamour.com/story/a-com...e-jk-rowling-transgender-comments-controversy
    Seems to be a fairly reasonable breakdown of things.

    What an absolute fucking cunt. Such abhorrence in words there...
    Though really I am at a loss on that one.

    If it wants to be relevant, it will have to be Fantastic Beasts era

    How is JK Rowling a shitty person of all people? A woman who became famous with her own skill and advocates for LGBT rights is shitty now?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    What in the actual hell? Biological women have very different experiences growing up than male-to-female trans women that can't be duplicated with mere hormone therapy. There's nothing wrong with what she said.

    I swear to god this is just an extension of men putting women down once again, only this time it's male-to-female trans still retaining their male attitudes towards demeaning women at every possible event. And then people wonder why feminism is such a hot topic. Ya'll see a successful woman and as usual call her derogatory words like "cunt".
