How do you both feel about the hullabaloo over the style change vs the older Diablo titles?

I like it far better than the older Diablos, so it didn't bother me. Screw the haters.

It's been a picross sort of year (and I'm working on Picross e7 and Picross DS.)

Nothing wrong with That! I think Picross is one of the best types of puzzles where you can sit, solve a puzzle or two and go on with your day. Who needs sudoku when you got Picross!

Picross was one of three games that my brother had on his original gameboy and I would spend countless hours playing Mario Picross. The music on that is spectacular!

Picross is great. Ditto for Long Live the Queen.

as far as modern Blizz goes I've played Diablo III, Hearthstone, Heroes Of The Storm and Overwatch. D3 took me like 10 hrs. I've put probably 50 into Overwatch, and triple digits on Hearthstone and HOTS. I'd probably call HOTS my favorite, but it's unfair as these are all vastly different games. I loved every second with D3, though. When I wasn't playing it, I was thinking about playing it.

The only hullabaloo I was aware of was that people hated the "always online" for single player, so not sure what you're referring to specifically. I never played D2, but I found D3 far more inviting to play (UI, controls, etc) than the original Diablo if that means anything.

I vastly prefer the looks/aesthetics of Diablo 2 / Starcraft to Diablo 3 / Starcraft 2, if that is what marurun is getting at. Not to mention the music of their older stuff is legendary.

I still think Diablo 3 was great though and I still haven't even played post patches, I hear it got a lot better and is almost totally different now.

Personally I think Diablo 3's style resembles high level Diablo 2 play, where you want to be mowing down dudes constantly because letting them actually fight you gets you killed. Early game Diablo 2 was closer to the Diablo 1 style of taking things more methodical and not getting in over your head, but once you started rolling with that aoe skill and solved your mana issues the gameplay totally changed.

Personally, I actually played through Diablo III a couple times on PC, where the previous games I think I played for an hour or so and then put them aside. I didn't keep playing to actually hit the level cap or grind great gear or whatever, but I'd still count it as a good bit more appealing to me.


noise, if your wife would be interested, the console version is a great couch co-op game. Blizzard retooled it a bit for controllers and it actually works quite well.
