Diablo 3 board dead so...

#150inchDLPPosted 2/28/2014 9:20:42 AM
I rented Diablo 3 on 360 and my wife and I LOVE it. But i hate spending money on console games so I am asking D3 players if the PC version is the same. Does it have couch co-op and 360 controller support on PC?

nope and nope.

since it's click-walk on PC you can't even emulate a decent controller setup afaik.

on the flipside you don't have to deal with a game that has been overrun by hackers and dupers... i suspect that joining a random game or two will show you exactly what i mean.

of course, if it's only you and your wife playing then i guess it doesn't matter.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

What a rip off. Why would they gimp the PC version so badly? thats disgusting.

Cause Blizzard is like Nintendo, they trying to squeeze all the money they can from their fans.

Normally I'd laugh at something like this but...yeah, Blizz really ^#$@ed up the PC version. No offline, FINALLY getting rid of the auction house (consoles didn't even HAVE one, had had the good loot dropping already.) The game feels designed for a controller, but no support (though M+K is superior for this kind of thing anyway)

And only one new class for the expansion? Ugh

yes sir I must say I am shocked to hear the PC version is missing these things. We really enjoyed the game on the xbox 360 and it seemed made for a controller and couch co-op.

Just play on PC. You can form a party and join a game together. Couch coop sucks sometimes cause you all get stuck on the same screen. ITs better on PC anyways, more bad guys on screen at once, sharper graphics and effects. Mouse and KB is superior for this style of game, all though I did enjoy the xbox one version as well. The best advantage I saw in the console version is since you can do that roll you can easily break barrels without stopping to attack.

Now that the PC diablo has loot 2.0 in, along with all the other goodies in the last patch is better then the console version, which I was recommending since it came out. You don't need a massive gaming PC to run this game on high either for PC so as long as you have 2 computers youll probably be good.

If not suck it up and buy the console version. The $$$ is worth the quality time and fun.

I don't think I could play this game with a gamepad. From videos, it looks a bit tricky to attack in the direction you want, and to attack a specific enemy. I'm sure looting specific things is a bit tricky as well.
