I get it, I do. You worked really hard on Diablo 3, and you want people to enjoy it. If I was still using my old computer, I might even open D3 every now and then, because I find grinding relaxing. And even i think this is a stupid decision. Sorry, Blizzard. Diablo 1 & 2 got me into computer gaming in the first place because it was so accessible. People who weren’t interested in the game before likely aren’t going to be picking it up now that it’s on an expensive new console.
Unless maybe it’s a prequel where you play Leah doing cool Adventure Things.
Probably not, though.
I’m back from Blizzcon and in true con fashion, I came home with a tiny attached guest – the common cold. So I’m sitting in my alliance hoodie with a box of tissue soul-bound to my hand. In spite of the backlog of work emails sitting in my inbox, I’m actually glad for the respite and rest, even if it does involve nails in the back of my throat.
Blizzcon was a whirlwind of 17 hours days, goggling at gorgeous cosplay, being Canadian in an American’s world (“It’s in the bowl over there.” “Bull?” “Bowl.” “Bull??” “No, the bowl. BOWL.”) and awesome panels. But.
(Trigger warning for suicide after the jump.)
