Diablo III: Trying out for Reaper of Souls
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
The title says it all. Yeah i know, the game is hardly new. It’s just that as i was starting up Hearthstone some days ago, the battlenet client said that there was a discount for buying Diablo III products. I thought it was a pretty neat deal so i bought it and am now trying out the expansion.
Thus far, i’ve only been playing the original game, and only managed to just complete Act 4. Act 5 is the expansion content. I’m playing Witch Doctor on the season thingy. I’m guessing the season thingy is like Path of Exile’s challenge leagues.
I don’t want this post to turn into Diablo III bashing. I know the game’s gotten bad reviews from players earlier, but the consensus now, it seems to me, is that the game has been getting better, via patch updates. But some parts of the game is so different from Diablo II that it just bugs me.
Like the cinematics, i missed one and wanted to watch it again. Took some googling to find out that i had to log out the character to watch previous cinematics. Then there was the waypoint. Path of Exile, Guild Wars 2, if you have a waypoint, just click it to travel. Pay some gold to do it if you’re playing Guild Wars 2. Sounds like the way how waypoints should work right? Except that with Diablo III, you can’t travel to previous Act by clicking on the waypoint directly.
Fortunately, i’m a forgiving gamer, i’ll continue to play into Act 5, do some bounties, gain some paragon levels, i quit previously before they introduced the paragon levels. So it’s kind of new to me.
Ok, so much for now, Geek Generation out.
