Diablo 3

Post by Zyx » Fri Apr 20, 2012 19:39

Diablo 3 is hitting the digital store shelves on 15.5. this year.

To make sure everything runs along happily once everyone rush in, Blizzard is having an open beta weekend this weekend, starting at Friday noon in the PDT time zone (or around midnight at EET). You can already download the game client at battle.net.

Many hold Diablo 2 as the best action RPG ever, so is anyone here been waiting for this?

Nah not really. I loved the original Diablo, and Diablo 2 was nice as well, but it always ended for me before I finished the game, and with a game with that much time put into then that is disturbing.
Diablo 2 is sure to be great, but it is highly unlikely that it will end up on my shelves - "it's not you...its me" - kind of thing. :)

Diablo was... ok. Did something different at the time.

Diablo 2 was crap from beyond.

Diablo 3 is likely to be even more crappy than that. It's not going to befoul my computer anyway.

(I'm not at all influenced by irrational hatred of Blizzard. Promise! Nor by irrational hatred of action RPGs. What?! You don't believe me!!?)

Who needs more Diablos when you have one?

I havent played second game, so I dont have an opinion, but I am generally sceptical about sequels. They usually exploit previously fresh ideas to the bottom, adding nothing new except updated visuals. Or in many cases they are simply worse.

In some franchises, the only reason the prequel wasn't as good as the sequel, was that they didn't have the budget to make the game into what they wanted. But once they have gotten some income from the first game, they could afford to make the next game more like what they wanted in the first place. That's some times it is like that.

Other times it's like you said, just like an effort to copy something they see is good, but really they've lost the vision that made the first game great, and gave it the feeling it had.
