Preview: Diablo III [PC] (GamePron)

GamePron: One noticeable difference between Diablo II and III is the increased focus on the story. Diablo II didn’t seem to have much of one to me, and my character certainly never felt a part of it. In Diablo III you interact with characters outside of the town. There are short dialogue scenes where your character actually talks. Not only that, but during gameplay your character will comment on the going-ons around them. This gives the game a narrative voice and makes it so you feel connected to the other characters and even other players, as you thank them for healing you.

Cyberpunk and No Man's Sky have to be up there. We're lucky and cursed, equally, to have games that can be updated now. For folks old enough to remember the Sega/SNES into PS1 and even 2 eras, if a game came out that was half baked (*cough*Angel of Darkness*cough*) that was it, no redemption. At the same time, having the option for updates shouldn't be an excuse for half assing games.

I remember when the Nintendo Seal of Approval meant something.

All those games had to release without bugs.

Comebacks shouldnt be a thing in videogames. Just saying.

Are you comparing a continuously improved 10+ years old masterpiece with the... beta of an unreleased game?

Heh, yeah. There's no comparison in here! Its a commentary on how III is still very playable over a decade later.
