Diablo III PC vs Console Thoughts

#91YombieePosted 8/21/2014 3:44:09 AM
I own D3 on ps3, yet to play it, I did however play RMAH3 on PC, that said, I never played it after they took out the RMAH and gave the game a massive overhaul, just how different of an experience is the game post patch?

I was actually in the top 3000 in terms of DPS for witch doctors back then so I played a lot of D3 already, I just don't want to go back into it if it feels too much the same.

You've made some really terrible posts in this topic. Vanilla D3 was misrepresented garbage, coming from someone who actively participated in closed beta and was there day one.

If it weren't for the massive quality-of-life changes SC2 made, SC1 would still be objectively the far better game. It's a bit closer now with the aforementioned changes, at least.

Blizzard is an awful shell of their former selves.


Other than the end game, what was wrong with Diablo III at launch?

Did you play the original Starcraft back in 1998? I did. Do you know many times it's been patched over the last 16 years?

Pretty much everything past what was shown in the beta, such as acts 2-4 as a whole, particularly anything and everything having to do with the story, multiplayer, itemization, balance. The game in no way feels like Diablo once you get past Leoric, roughly.

The game has gotten far better, but it still doesn't feel like anything more than a caricature of the Diablo series.

I did, as well.

As far as how many times it's been patched, it's really not as many as you'd think. Particularly in the area of balance changes. Though, when I said SC1 was objectively the better game, I wasn't really referring to balance. I was referring to the core principles that SC2 was seemingly built on that are fairly broken (compared to SC1/BW.)

Sounds like Rubbish to me. First act is great. Hey the second act is a desert too, just like Diablo 2 an guess what you go in sewers again and walk around the desert too.

I will say the beginning of Act 3 is a bit boring. But once you go down into hell I thought it really picked up. Its to bad its not a very long segment overall. And Act 4 was a bit disappointing overall. Just to short. I neverliked in games where they'll have 4 acts and then 1 or 2 are really short. Act 5 is great though.

I'm curious to hear what those core principles are that you believe are "fairly broken"


Also, the #1 issue with D3 at launch is still the fact people couldn't freaking login to play the game.

You write like a troll. You've never cited a single specific issue, instead relying on colorful language and cliches.

I wonder how D3 would play mapped to a Steam controller?
