I hate that word..."accessible when they refer to a much loved and succesful video game

Bioware said Dragon Age 2 was accessible...look what happened.

news4geeks2283d ago

I love it, it means for us who aren't fans that we get to enjoy the game for a few days, if we feel like it, then throw it in the rubbish bin.

Accessible. Lol that word really damaged biowares reputation.

d3 is no longer on my list to buy but I hope it turns out well

i agree, i dont play diablos but whenever a dev team goes from having an amazing hardcore rpg ( or any genre for that matter ) and make it more accessible we get another fable. sad part is no matter how "accessible you make it, the fans are what will make or break its success and once you alienate them, kiss your franchise goodbye. i dont know too many casual gamers who even know what diablo is, making it accessible to them doesnt make sense....

you guys are kinda the ones not making sense . Making quality games for an ever larger public was always Blizzard' games with most titles .

Those not aware of diablo , arent because there hasnt been a new one in age ... not some pseudo aim at the hardcores .

Blizzard always keep enough depth to its games to allow for hardcore metagames , but it's always at its core , some rather simple and accessible games for everyone .

We already know Blizzard made this game for casual gamers too, or "HIGHLY accessible" (yea I'm sure it is) considering all of their games have turned into mindless crap for newbs.


You don't even have to think to play anymore IN ANY game they have out currently. NOT even Starcraft... complexity doesn't exist, or the skill. It's all about how fast you can remember which unit, or building to spam in the shortest amount of time.... Warhammer is far superior in strategy I suggest the start taking notes for their actual skilled players.

they should have just said dumbed down instead

JsonHenry2283d ago

I'm really worried the more I hear about this game about it being lame. I hope my fears are not justified upon release.

Hooby2283d ago

This just in: Blizzard changes all the demons in D3 to pandas.

GoldenPheasant2283d ago

Now sir, that wouldn't happen because you can't nickle and dime. That shits coming in DLC form for 19.99.
