Thread: Diablo III

  1. #1

    Default Diablo III

    Its pretty nice.

    I will probably play that for awhile to relieve some of the WoW burnout.

    What are the perceived benefits of having multiple accounts? I saw that MF is averaged among party members, so could you have an AFK character with full MF gear and another with heavy combat gear? and benefit from higher MF than you would have done on your combat char

    Well after a couple days of playing I am already pretty bored with it. Its visually nice and very few bugs, but it just doesnt have the same staying power as WoW to me.

    I remember playing Diablo on the PS2 and it felt just like this, just greatly improved graphics now.

    Frankly, once I got into MMOs, regular single-player games just felt shallow unless they had a great story to tell. And even then, considering most single-player games are designed to provide less than 20-40 hours of entertainment (aka "content") I have a really hard time investing anything in them until they go on the bargain rack. I'm pretty much either playing MMO or RTS games these days.

    [edit] And I don't consider the same instance cut & pasted with the same monsters at different levels to be content.

    [edit2] No multimonitor support? http://www.wsgf.org/blog/skipclarke/...y-blizzard-why -- that's an interesting justification: "with a fixed isometric it doesn't make much sense." Bullshit. I play all sorts of RTS games. My favorite layout is the isometric view on one screen and maps/status/etc. on the other. Example:

    Only my favorite RTS of all time. So much better than Starcraft in every way.

    I really wish more games picked up on the zoom in/out and dualscreen of Supcom...I feel gimped now every time I play any other game.
    I tried windowed dualscreen in wow for a bit. used a viewport addon to put the game window on 1 monitor, and addons on the 2nd. But it meant I couldn't use the same interfaces between solo and multiboxing, so I dropped it.

    back on topic: I logged into D3 for a while, but didn't find it very engaging. Got bored pretty quickly, didn't help that I would always unintentionally comb the entire map before finding the exact spot I had to go. So, I haven't played it since the day it came out. There was also the issue of a single player game being played on internet servers. Why in the world would I want to play single player while lagging??!? Also, when I go away next month, 4 days without internet, I don't even have the option of playing it.

    It's kind of odd since I used to love playing Dungeon Siege 1/2 repeatedly (3 was terribad).

    Make that three of us. I just went through the campaign again last month out of boredom.

    As much as I enjoyed TA and SupCom, I personally think Starcraft 2 is superior. (can't really compare SC 1, since it's so old)
    Having factions with actual different playstyles and units is very hard to do well and Blizzard did it quite well, IMHO.
    Unfortunately for TA/SupCom, the factions are almost carbon copies of each other.
    Additionally, I actually paid attention to (and enjoyed) the story in SC2. I couldn't care less about it in TA/SupCom.
