    One of the dickweeds responsible for this game wrote a blog post this week essentially bragging about the success of harry potter hogwarts mystery:
    http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/Vadim...successful.php

    The part that particularly pissed me off was this one:

Children, on the other hand, are more sensitive to this.

    Despite this, I would not say that monetization in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is unethical. Here we see a straightforward and honest monetization with the use of energy. The game mostly tells us - just put the smartphone aside and get busy. After all, in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery there are no loot boxes."


    First by literally implying they're preying on children to get their bottom line right before saying that's not unethical, then suggesting they're being straightforward and the game tells the player to wait and as a result it's ethical UNLIKE loot boxes, like Jam City has some sort of higher moral ground for not using loot boxes.

    But hey, they were successful. So I think we can all resign ourselves to the fact WB will probably keep opting for cancerous mobile games like this one instead of actual gaming experiences based in the HP world.

    Ugh. Yeah that's extremely smarmy. Let's stress out children so they try to beg parents into spending money.

    Definitely sticking with Live Nikki lol.

    The defense is "at least is not lootboxes".

    Wait until they implement a card game based on the chocolate frog card thingies.

    Deleted the app. I found my wand, I saw Hufflepuff's common room; after that it was just . . . . pointless.

    Trailer looks good. But also like they're stuffing in characters for the sake of stuffing them in. Dumbledore was always a given, but do we really need Flammel?

    Am I the only one worried that the trailers make it seem like dumbledore is going to have newt beat Grindlewald and then somehow get the credit?

    Because the thing that made Dumbledore considered one of the greatest wizards of all time was his defeat of grindlewald, like that's the main thing (also finding 12 uses for Dragons Blood and help with the Philosopher stone) it would be a huge disappointment if they decided to mess with that legacy in these movies

    I was really hoping for an all out battle between Grindlewald and Dumbledore, now I'm afraid there going to tamper with the lore of Harry Potter

    NO! You are not alone. I got the same feeling and hate the idea.

    Because the thing that made Dumbledore considered one of the greatest wizards of all time was his defeat of grindlewald, like that's the main thing (also finding 12 uses for Dragons Blood and help with the Philosopher stone) it would be a huge disappointment if they decided to mess with that legacy in these movies
    ... that part witht eh stone just sounds wrong. With the wording and how it follows co-discovering the 12 uses of Dragon Blood, makes it sound like he helped create the Philosopher's Stone, instead of help protect the stone. lol But rest I agree with, its Dumbledore's defeat of Grindlewald that set up his rep, its part of the reason Voldemort was scared of Dumbledore.

    I was really hoping for an all out battle between Grindlewald and Dumbledore, now I'm afraid there going to tamper with the lore of Harry Potter
    Well maybe in 3rd movie it will have a all-out battle between them. But yeah I share your fear of the movie screwing up canon-lore of it being Dumbledore vs Grindlewald. Esp. since Newt is known as an expert on creatures, and not known for any fighting skills. It makes me feel like they are going go dismiss canon profiles and really f-up things, on a Cursed Child level of screw-ups.

    The preview just feels too many fanfics of the 'manipulative Dumbledore', esp. ones where he didn't defeat Grindlewald but took credit anyways.

    Grindelwald is the villain for the next four movies. At most in this one Newt is getting a victory in terms of finding a maguffin.

    I expect it to be Newt giving Dumbledore the courage to face his old friend again. He is the Sam. Or basically book 5 Harry where he does most of the stuff but Dumbledore does the battle. I could understand the worry if Newt was a prodigy in spells but he doesn't seems to be set up as such.


    He is the guy with an heart of gold, a kinship to animal and helping people realize their potential. He is not the action guy and someone will have to fill that role.

    Don't mess with the Law if you don't have an Ace up your sleeve.

    Well, history says it's Dumbledore who defeats Grindelwald. So yeah, Newt helping Dumbledore seems the most likely route.

    If this story and screenplay was written by anyone else, unguided by Rowling, I would care, but since she does write these films I have no doubt she'll do what's best and most entertaining.

    Regardless, this is the duel in which Dumbledore won the Elder Wand from Gindlewald.

    Careful, that is muddy waters there. Rowling had no part of writing the play "Cursed Child" yet when they adapted it to book form, she then had a part helping them changing it from play to book. And now many think that means "she guided it!" so now that cluster fuck that involves deux ex mechana and ignores canon personalities and canon facts that's called "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is considered canon.
