Well I have given up the dreaded World of Warcraft (WoW) for now. Its seems that since the last expansion it has lost its way for keeping content fresh. So I have fallen prey to Diablo 3 as I signed up for the offer to get it free. After giving blizzard a years worth of subscription to WoW. Here is a glimpse of the game:
I was really keen to get into Diablo but with time restraints I am quite behind most of my online friends. However this does mean they can come and help me!
Game play wise I find it a unique change to the other games I currently play. Those that are on the market presently such as WoW and Battlefield (Got to love some FPS.) Its still pretty easy to lose a few nights with this game and of course my wife isn’t best pleased. Although I have caught her several times taking a peek, I think she wants to join me in some sleepless nights!
The best bit about Diablo 3 is the fact you can constantly swap gear out and can give it to others. My higher level friend is always giving me his hand me downs! Which was one thing that always annoyed me with WoW. The long grind for gear, for it to be replaced by a quick looting of a boss. To then just throw it away without a second thought!
There are five classes you can play Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor and Wizard. I am currently playing as a Demon Hunter and finding the class suits my play style. It is a first for me to go for a range class off the hoof. As I usually favour a heavy melee class. I will be trying out the other classes in due course, as with WoW I suspect I will reach max level with all classes at some point! (Although I don’t have a great deal of time to play these days!)
You can also have one of three follower who will assist you whilst battling numerous foe. You can have an Enchantress, Scoundrel or Templar. I currently opt for Templar which suits me for now but they all work in different ways. You get to partially gear your followers as you go along too with two rings, a neck and weapons.
Overall I am enjoying the content and game-play, we will see how long it lasts………
