    In the end I congratulated myself on being an idiot and wished I had saved my money for something else.



    Diablo 3 has received a lot of unfavorable remarks. I won't be fooled again.



    I'll give the money I save to ArenaNet because I'm 99.9% sure GW2 is going to be great.

    I feel you there. However in all honesty if you enjoyed D2 in it's time, you'll probably enjoy D3. After playing the beta for D3, I realized I'll most likely enjoy it. To be honest though, the main reason I'm buying  it is so I'll have something to do while waiting for GW2.

    I wasn't excited about Diablo 2, and that was probably a better game.  Dungeon crawlers only keep me occupied a few weeks, so I won't be paying full price if I buy it at all.  It's silly to assume everyone is excited about what you are.

    i havent followed the D3 development at all, seriously you cannot play Offline? say your net goes down, you cant just play the game?

     

    That makes about as much sense as a turd flavored breathmint

    D3 huh? Too late.

  • CrazylikeCrazylike HPosts: 89Member

    I will have fun with D3 even though im dissapointed with a lot of the decisions Blizz made when they crafted this game. There simply arent any other game atm that im having fun playing and D3 is fun (beta was atleast).

    I think the game looks fine but I see no incentive to be grabbed by it. The isometric gameplay, the pre-destined character selection. It all screams of that I wont give a rats butt about my character and play it once and leave it. Nothing wrong with that, but I expect a lot more than I did during the days of Diablo 2, and that there is no real character creation, or a 3d world outside a bird eyes view, just takes me out and makes me not care. 

     

    I think it's great though for anyone who has been waiting for this for over a decade. I think like Starcraft 2 I will play it for a bit and say - nice changes. this feels like the other games in this series. and then I wont think more about it. 

     

     

    I think Blizzards fanbase is to zealot. They are afraid to make real changes. They are afraid to fail. So they design conservatively. But it also becomes more boring.

    Eh to be honest I wouldnt like a 3D view in a dungeon crawler,  I guess to each their own, its about gameplay, you can be 3D all you want (SWTOR) but if you "dont have good gameplay" whats the point?

    Path of Exile is a better game, IMO. So, while I used to be excited about D3, I have something even better keeping me occupied for the forseeable future.

    Count me in as someone excited to get back into the world of Diablo, even if I don't agree with all the moves Blizzard has made.

     

     

    Thats the worst logic in the world.  Thats like saying it would be really fun and exciting to bang this ridiculously hot chick, but you have to overlook the herpes, syphilis, the fact that she is a psychopath and might stab you in the middle of sex, and various other issues.

    I didnt say they were my flaws, I am just saying thats what certain people say, honestly I see nothing wrong with diablo 3, I am a blizzard fan but more importantly I am a diablo fan, I dont play WoW, or Starcraft, well not any more, but everything I see of diablo 3 makes it a great successor of diablo 2, people hate change, blizzard made change, I see nothing but success from diablo 3.

    Its the gameplay/item hunting that made diablo 2 successful, which will make diablo 3 even more successful.

    Actually, your analogy is probably the worst analogy I've ever heard.  But what would else would I expect from gamer, but comparing a video game to sex?  

    Games can have flaws.  Plenty of them.  But that doesn't mean when you sit down to play them, you don't overlook those flaws because the core game is FUN.  Isn't that why we play the games in the first place?  This is particularly true of hack and slash dungeon crawlers.  If the game is deep enough, has enough content, and has good combat, the game will be fun.  

    Blizzard made some strange changes to Diablo 3.  But the core game is still the same.  Enter dungeon, take on multiple mobs at once, obliterate them in a frenzy of blood and gore.  Collect loot.  And on top of all that mindless fun, they've updated the graphics and added in the ability to interact with the environment during combat.  None of the weird changes Blizzard has made to the game changes that very basic approach.  

    But if totally irrelevant analogies is what gives you an excuse to not play, then continue firing away, champ.

    The Diablo franchise is dead to me. This game is just a half-assed cash in attempt by what passes for Blizzard these days. I'll support the real people behind the Diablo franchise I loved by buying Torchlight 2.

  • TorvalTorval Oregon CountryPosts: 7,205Member Uncommon

    The game doesn't do much for me.  I did like the first two, but this one does'nt spark my interest at all.

  • zephermarkuszephermarkus qunatico, MDPosts: 201Member

    Not excited at all Diablo 3 looks and feels like wow re skinned with diable textures and to me feels nothing like the old diablo 1 and 2 games at all but thats because blizzard north left and made real innovation with torchlight and guildwars 2. IF you don't know blizzard north split and made runic game and arena.net.

  • freegamesfreegames san gabriel, CAPosts: 158Member

    I seriously forgot all about Diablo 3 while waiting.

    Never got in the beta so put it out of my mind and forgot about it.

  • bbethelbbethel las vegas, NVPosts: 199Member

    Oh My God i for got that Diablo 3 is cumming out!!!!!

     

    Oh wait i forgot i played the beta and its Diablo 2 with better graphic and 10 year old game play. It reminds me of starcraft 2 with al the hype that i got draged into and when i got the game it was a 10 year old game with better graphic.

     

    So this time im not getting draged into another 10 year old game with better graphics. I will keep playing my newer fealing games.

    That's true. Gameplay above all else. The isometric style serves a purpose, but it's not exclusively mutual.

     

    Imagine if Grand Theft Auto never took the leap towards 3d person and stayed isometric? it would be crazy irelevant. But then again, Diablo might not be about that. about connecting with your character in some deep way and thats fine. I think Diablo 3 will be great for playing when your listening to music in the background or a podcast or watching tv. Just hacking away. those games are cool.

    If you enjoyed the dark look of Diable 1 and 2, you should definately give path of exile a try if you can get a key.

    GTA also had good gameplay. I am the type of gamer that finds graphics irrevelant if the gameplay is bad.

    If gameplay is excellent or very fun I dont care about graphics to an extent, its always nice to evolve, if that means going 3D or better graphics, but its not needed if it still looks nice but is very fun to play. D3 looks nice in its own way.

    I don't get it. Why would anyone be looking forward to Diablo 3 because of Diablo 2. Diablo 2 was the worst game I've ever played. Maybe if I was 11 years old at the time I played it, it'd be good because that was all there was but wasn't Diablo 2 around the same time as Baldur's Gate. Baldur's Gate, 14 years on, is still one of my favourite games and regardless of my age it always would be. Diablo 2 was just utter crap. It looked like crap and played like crap.

    Maybe Diablo 3 WILL be a good game, it's the year 2012, there's alot of games to look back on and learn from. If they make anything like Diablo 2 they just blew a whole load of cash on a dead horse in my opinion though.

    well they made it like d2 but took out features like skill trees and stats and replaced it with nothing. so yeh they did blow a whole load of cash.

    they will probably make it all back because there are so many mindless drones out there that get all excited and hyped up after seeing a couple of trailers. just remember about all those other times you were "excited" and a week in realise you just bought a steaming pile of crap eg. SWTOR etc

    not big on dungeon crawlers like this, theres very few games that are not an MMO that I can get into.

     

    With Tera, GW2 , TSW coming out I doubt I will have time for this .

     

    Plus lately im not a big fan of blizzard.
