[Twitter] Diablo 3 coming to consoles - Page 10

post #91 of 150
The best part about Blizzard releasing their games for the consoles is the commercials that are sure to follow. Take Starcraft 64 for example. They took one of the most serious and nail biting games of the century and covered it's promos with cheese.

90's cheese.

I don't see how this is a big deal. Most reputable companies have more than one studio within them. They can normally work on several games, or versions of games, at a time.

Just because they make a game for a console that doesn't suddenly mean they're going to pull support for PC all of a sudden. Blizzards past actions with console games have actually favoured PC more than consoles. They actually lost money scrapping a game mid way through development for the Xbox because they didn't feel it would be right on that platform. Their last few games have been PC only, one of which everyone claims to hate, and the other you have to have the APM of a Japanese Geisha Robot on crack.

All Blizzard are doing is hiring staff to port the game to console. Which is what a lot of companies tend to do. There's no harm in that, neither does it mean PC gaming is suddenly going down the pan.

And isn't Valves DOTA 2 PC only?


As long as Dota 2 stay on PC i can careless about any other games.

Whoever is in charge of development obviously has no idea what a diablo game should be like ...

Play in most comfortable room in the house on the nicest screen in the house.
Play out in a shared area where my wife doesn't feel like I'm hiding away. She may even cuddle up near me and watch.
Console Cons:
Have to hook up headphones sometimes when wife can't deal with the gunfire / screams.
Can't play games at all when wife has her friends over for Dancing-with-the-Stars marathon.
PC Pros:
Gaming laptop let me play anywhere including in bed. Can even be positioned so I can play while wearing baby in sling.
Get to install mods, use Steam, etc.
PC Cons:
Windows bugs, crashing, overheating, etc.
The one place I can't really play: the couch.


full of win.

Regarding Torchlight 2 vs Diablo 3. Both games are coming to consoles but TL2 will build on its roots instead of giving them the axe. User generated content: new levels, models, classes, spells, etc... and of from what I've heard,open multiplayer. Removing potions is as silly as removing medkits from FPS games.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm definitely going to buy TL2 as well as D3, I love me some mods smile.gif

Also D3 did NOT remove potions. They just work differently now. It's like an emergency situation panic button. You should regain your hp from killing mobs (health globes) but the potion is there (on a long cooldown) for those intense moments.

I see, thanks for clearing that up. I thought they'd taken another step to "arcade-mode".

I don't really see why they needed to turn it into Pac-Man. Potions were fine...though i suppose now you will need to be able to kill at least a couple of the mobs you are facing and not just spam potions as fast as you can to kill a few before they overwhelm you.

Though I was under the impression that potions were completely gone. I will have to look into this. Though a panic use on a long cool down doesn't sound like it would really effect the game much anyway.

They're trying to make the game as accessible and as fun as possible. The potion system was more of a headache than anything in D2. Refilling the potion belt... inventory space.. seriously. It will not be missed.
