Hey guys! YES ALL 20 of you, it's nice to have this one sided conversation with you again. I know I haven't blogged in a little while but you know how it is Sex>Food>Play>Work>Blog?
I am playing D3 as you might be able to tell from the title, obvously not an mmorpg but close enough nowadays. I don't really have as much time to play as I would like, never the less I've managed to log 14hours on my shaman eer witch doctor.
Still very pissed about not having Lan, or even an offline single player mode. Very pissed, especially the first 2 days of release, greedy DRM freaks are messing with my gameplay time.
Having a great time ingame, almost beat it at my casual pace, getting to know the details of the game, playing around with settings etc. It's been a while since I've co-oped a game with my gf or any of my friends IRL so it was fun to login and see a friend or 2 and play with'em a little.
Just finished the Belial fight in co-op, that was a bitch, and I'm only on normal. Can't wait to start doing hardcore or nightmare even. I'm not reading anything about the ending or the strategies or builds, just winging it. If this were an MMO, I'd already be at Elitist Jerks or somewhere on a training dummy crunching numbers. Well, maybe a few years ago, I'm not sure I have that level of commitment in me anymore, not for simple games.
I find Titans Quest to be more enjoyable in a lot of aspects, but by far the artwork and environments in D3 are a winner. Well, the classes could have been better, visually, even some of the animations and sounds get annoying but... getting older, trying to nit pick less, but very hard to since it's 2012 and weed is still illegal here.
Back to the game! Seems pretty smooth for a casual player, for more hardcore players, don't know, you'll have to let me know how your finding it.
