Follow-up – Diablo 3 Console

Diablo 3 ConsoleSo this evening, Holly and I were able to finally play Diablo 3 on our X-Box 360. It’s been a lot of fun, and in one evening we fought through to the Skeleton King – much like they did in the Penny Arcade preview video of Diablo 3 (http://youtu.be/Tb3QNOg13cM).

That means the gameplay and control was seamless during this time. It got us interacting with the world, our abilities, inventories, and working with each other. We were playing split-screen and it wasn’t a problem.

So I am going to highlight some of our points from playing so far, and how things work – and a few things that could work better. If you are considering Diablo 3 on the console, check it out, and feel free to ask us questions about how it plays!

First Thoughts – Diablo 3 Console

Diablo 3 ConsoleI should first say that I haven’t actually gotten to play Diablo 3 yet for our X-Box 360. We have it, it’s downloaded, and we need some time actually at home to play. I have Diablo 3 on the computer, and I talked about my playthrough of this before. I had some concerns, about how the game seemed to be speeding towards the end-game.

With the console version out, my hope is to play this co-op, with Holly, and as I have learned things about it, I think this is actually really exciting. You see, my first experience with Diablo as a series was on the PlayStation, playing co-op with my dad. Diablo 3 for the console leads me to hope that there will be a lot of similarities. Let’s take a quick look at what they have going on with it! Continue reading

My Top Ten Video Games

This content originally appeared on my old blog at dbcii.com. There I have done some blogging about my master’s degree, and about blogging in general – and a bit about video games! Sorry to reuse content, but today did not work out to write the post I had intended. Expect more in the days and weeks to come!

Gamers often get into debates about which video games are their favorites, or which are the best, or influenced them most, or that you’re crazy if you don’t like. Well, I thought I would put out something of my list. To help justify my opinions, I have created a category for each, and for some even have runners up, that my top choice beats out.

Like I said, I was just at the Art of Video Games exhibit, so I know full well I am leaving out a lot of types of games. I plan to rectify this with some links to other top lists of games – so you don’t have to take my word for it! Let me know what you think.

Without further ado, and in no particular order… my top ten video games.

As may have started to become apparent, I have a habit of putting games down – and picking them back up. I love to replay games, and re-read books, and this is probably a lot of the reason I have not read or played more than I have.

I put down Diablo 3, probably the game I have most anticipated ever. I signed up for a year subscription to World of Warcraft just to get the free copy of Diablo 3. I fell for the Diablo 2 release date that got postponed a year, so I’ve been attached to this series for a while.

What’s stopped me playing was actually more the thought that Diablo 3 was either not living up to my expectations, or was living up too awesomely. I’m hoping that talking about it will let me move forward. Onward to Diablo 3!
