Story you hear it once and its done forever.

 

 

I agree completely.

I didn't play much after the initial release, but started up again a couple of weeks before RoS and was very satisfied with the changes. Also very satisfied with the expansion.

Anyone who bought it because of the story, haven't understood what the game is about.

This remind me something, what very often I heard about WoW: "I've played for 5 years WoW and somehow didn't suck me up".

Personally, I'll buy it (D3+RoS) in near future.  Cheers! :)

It's an ARPG - it's killing things a billion times for loot, and experimenting with builds based on loot 

That IS the game - the story is completely irrelevant to any D3 player who has put 100s of hours into the game.

Every Diablo game revolves around gameplay "where you kill stuff in HUGE numbers" - the story is just icing on the cake.

 

Bottom line - ALL Diablo hardcore players play it for killing/loot/builds - NOT story.

how about maybe other people enjoy games differently than yourself? Maybe some of us like it for what it is and think the 40 dollars was worth it? If you do not like it thats fine you do not have to play it but to say something like that is extremely self serving only.

I honestly don't know what'll become of this franchise. I really did hope for the best but I just don't see it with RoS.

What are you opinions? Have you played through it or seen all of it?

I laughed so hard reading this... so... you WATCHED the gameplay, and then post criticism... um... yea... doesn't sound like something a gamer would do. 

The xpac is well worth the $, the story (while predictable) was/is NOT the focus. The story is simply a placeholder for the gameplay to exist in. The music, the class skill choices, the environments, and the mobs are polished and well done. I've said before, the music alone will pull you in (and I do understand that is a matter of taste).

WATCHING gameplay and pounding your chest, proclaiming victory for NOT engaging in said game is pathetic.

Still playing through Act V - been powerleveling up a Crusader.

Expansion is worth $40 for Crusader, Transmogrification, Enchanting, and Adventure Mode all by itself.

Not to mention all of the 2.0 features and tweaks and the AH being shut down are part of the expansion as well (just given to the whole game freely as well.)

Act V is like an added bonus, IMO.

While ARPGs aren't about the story, you'd think the story would be at least not completely awful in a AAA game like this. They clearly spent a lot of money on cutscenes, yet couldn't find a decent writer? How's that even possible?

I'm sure no one expects Planescape: Torment -quality writing from a Diablo game, but what Blizzard is producing right now is probably worse than what I'd write and there's a good reason why I haven't tried earning my living as a writer. At least it's not as bad as bad writing in a story-focused game. Hello, BioWare!

I dunno.  I bought the CE (I'm an avid Blizz CE collector for some reason).  I don't tend to keep playing the games but I dig having art books and music because some of the scores are excellent.  That being said, I like what they did with RoS.  I played and beat DIII in no time.  I didn't think the AH was a good idea and the logon issue was terrible.  I think O/L games that aren't directly MMOs are shooting themselves in the foot.

They added a fun new class (Crusader), they added Adventure mode for people like me who HATE having to replay the same story over and over, and frankly they fixed loot drops.  Just through Act 1 I had 2 legendaries. One of which genuinely hurt to stop using but it was too low.

If you think the Crusader is easy play on Hard/Expert.  Everyone keeps criticizing "normal".  I think the first time I died on Hard/Expert was on Maghda and that was because I was an idiot and got swarmed with my health on CD.

I am glad I bought it. I dont care that much about the story but atleast I had my revenge on a witch and I enjoy doing bounty hunts and rifts. Thats what Diablo is all about, get better loot with every run.

I have played a ton of ARPGs: the previous two Diablos, TQ and its expac, the two Sacreds, the first Divine Divinity, two of the Dungeon Sieges, both Torchlights, PoE, and probably a bunch I forgot. I honestly can't tell you what their stories are but that is partly because none of their stories are really that engaging. There is a big weenie to kill at the end of them and you build your character by killing endless mobs, crawling endless dungeons, scooping up endless piles of gold and loot, finding gear, etc. It is basically like a fancy form of Gauntlet, which I also love to play. Either you get it or you don't but story is not really ever one of the big, defining factors of ARPGs. It seems like a really odd complaint to be frank, considering that this genre is known to be based around combat, dungeon crawling, loot, and character building.

Playing MUDs and MMOs since 1994.

I am glad i bought it .. adventure mode and rifts are great. And story .. what story? When i want a story in a game, i go play TombRaider.

D3 is about dungeon crawling, build experimenting, and becoming more powerful. In in that, the game excels. Combat is phenomenal, and random dungeon means the game has almost infinite content.

The story was decent for an ARPG, I didnt go into it expecting Mass Effect levels here.  Diablo has always been about grinding for loot, Remember Baal runs?  Meph runs?  That was the game for many people.

I thought the story was decent as well. Especially if you talk to the NPCs and listen to the log books that drop.

 

But people will complain about just about anything here...so go figure.

you don't understand its not just the 10 new levels ,after you finish it opens up adventure zones that you play with clan members it spawns every day new challenges randomly over the whole 70 levels.

its fun every day you can play for a view hours or play the whole day,you don't have to play the game over and over again like it was.

also rifts open with new challenges after you completed you 5 quests,ill keep it and when I feel like kicking ass play now waiting for eso.

ill play tomorrow again D3 ros.

a good buy now out is dark souls 2 where people can spawn to you,on pc 25 april I don't know if it classifies as an mmo but a multiplayer of sorts.

.. and enjoying the combat action.

RoS story is no more or less than all the "here is the big bad guy ... go fight 1000 mobs, with occasionally sub-boos, get to him, then kill him" stories out there. It is good enough to give us an excuse to kill & loot in fun ways.

glad i didn't buy it too. only because i will be playing ESO in less than 3 days.

believe me, i was still very tempted. :D

hopefully by the time i am ready for a break from ESO the D3 expansion has come down a little in price.

My apologies to one of the biggest fans of D3 in the universe.

Yes RoS is excellent and the game is better than before. I was wrong.  Dead wrong.

After playing it, I changed my mind as the long term play is absolutely there with the promised seasons in PVE gear competitions.

D3 RoS is probably the best game of 2014. It certainly has the best combat. I just hope it sells well so we have more expansions.

A pity lots of people will ignore it though. They have no clue, but I can't blame them as I was convinced RoS would mean the end of D3.

Greetings.
