My first post in a long time from a hiatus…
So Diablo 3 has been gaining so much attention since its release on May 15, 2012. Selling over 3.5 million copies in the first 24 hours of its release, Diablo 3 is certainly the fastest selling PC game to date.
So how is the game with all the hype and 12 years of work under its belt? In my opinion, not so good.
In terms of story line, it was wonderful…until you finish it in under 8hours.
They boasted about how there are endless replayability the game offers to players because of the Randomization of maps, well I hate to bursts Blizzard bubble but, I was able to memorize the pattern of the “Whimsyhire” map, the Secret cow level map of Diablo 3 in a days worth of farming.
Alot of exploits were seen during the first month of its release, exploits that made it possible for a lot of players to make some serious Cash and Gold… Making RMAH, and normal Auction houses’ price sky rocket. Leaving new players in awe of the prices of items. Even when new players find a good spot to farm gold from, you bet Blizzard will nerf it soon.
Pvp? not yet, they kept pushing it back since June…I wanted to see how broken PVP would be.
The only redeeming quality Diablo 3 has is its amazing CG graphics they have on their cutscenes.
I’ve clocked in about 300 hours of game time, and I could leave the game happily gaining the money back from purchasing Diablo 3.
Roughly about 19k Php ($470?). 😀
Would I recommend the game? NO!
If you want to play just for the story, just borrow an account from a friend.
Quoting the report from http://pc.ign.com
“According to Best Buy, Diablo III is headed to stores at the beginning of next month. An end cap display spotted at a Rochester, Minnesota Best Buy location advertises that the store will hold a midnight launch for the game that day, and Best Buy’s website lists the same date.
Joystiq has acquired the following photo of the display, and has confirmed with the store that it’s legitimate
For now, Blizzard hasn’t announced when Diablo III will be coming out, so nothing is confirmed. Still, the fact that Best Buy is printing ads suggests that they’re pretty confident about this release date. Blizzard hasn’t commented on the display, but we’ve reached out and will update with any information they provide.”
So yeah I’m crossing my fingers and praying that this isn’t a mistake from the retailers.
Oh! and did you see the epic spelling of February on the sign? HAHAHA
Looking at the trailers Blizzard is putting up for Diablo III it makes my jaw drop on how amazing their CG animation quality is and they just keep getting better and better.
