Just picked up Diablo III, should I play this game while listening to podcasts or is the story significant enough to pay attention to and is the sound design / music immersive? I play so many games while listening to podcasts, it's a hard habit to break.
Diablo 3's plot is really terrible, so no worries there
I would consider keeping sounds on (like D2 specific loot makes specific noises when it drops, but since loot is instanced there's no possible way someone will steal it)
Music is decent, not quite as nice as DIablo 2
just make sure you have the sound up in Act 3 so you don't miss Azmodan's phone calls
Leah is the child of the dude from the first game who gets possessed by Diablo and then becomes Diablo herself, resulting in a why boner. Cain dies. You're a chosen one and end up beating the shit out of everything and saving the world.
Oh and Tyrael is a nigger
OK, plot time
Tyrael gets turned into a black man because he got upset. No one will mention how this resulted in hundreds if not thousands of people killed by the undead that were awoken by this.
Butterfly lady needs Cain to mend this sword she wants. So she kills Cain and steals the broken sword which she doesn't know how to mend.
Hidden footprints. HIDDEN. FOOT. PRINTS.
Emperor is actually Belial, a twist so obvious even the character goes "Yeah, so let's fight because you're a Belial".
Azmodan "the best battlefield tactican" evil has to offer keeps appearing to tell how to defeat his army in easy to follow steps. Seriously, he helps you more than anyone on your side.
Chase sexy Diablo. Kill sexy Diablo. Look up porn of sexy Diablo.
Chase emo Angels around. Setting is cool though.
>"the best battlefield tactican" evil has to offer
it's canon that he's the greatest general in the universe besides Tyrael, and the last time him and Tyrael fought, Azmodan won
You made a mistake, leave while there's still time.
Pretty much this.
The only thing about this game that impresses me is how they keep updating the thing after so much time. Even weirder each update is giving MORE content instead of less, I simply don't get it.
Last update we got a visual pet that's going to pick up gold on the next update, two new huge maps,a new crafting system and a big batch of legendaries.
Next update we will get yet ANOTHER pet, at least 3 new maps, set dungeons and more legendaries.
For me it makes no sense, the game started mediocre, got shitted by the AH, became mediocre again on RoS and now it's relatively good.
Not as good as the previous game, now I mute the music and play synthwave on the background.
Also 229 hours in and no sight of a kridershot.

the power of Jay Wilson no longer being on the dev team
Yeah d2 sound was pretty amazing. I haven't played in awhile but I thought the latest patch made it easy as shit to get ancient legendaries now. I just made a bunch of bows and used the cube and got a few kriders. I re rolled the kriders to get an ancient one. All you need are crafting mats and getting one should be cake
>mfw I give no fuck about D3 since it's not canon garbage made by ActiBlizz and since D2 wrapped up everything perfectly
>mfw replaying D2 in HD thanks to the MultiRes mod
I used over 2000 breaths, over 5000 blood shards and not ONE krider. I mean seriously, I don't even really need it for my build, but I have been chasing that ever since that bow was introduced.
"while listening to podcasts"
what the fuck is a podcast
isnt it just some faggot talking on a stream?
I'm dead serious I don't know what it is, because I wouldn't waste one fucking nanosecond listening to some random nobody talk
have you considered reading a book written by a person who has spent some time studying one subject, instead?
>playing a watered down, forced sequel with literally less features than the predecessors, always online DRM, shitty writing and music because original devs are long gone, cookie cutter skills and cartoony WoW graphics
Why, the game is fundamentally flawed no matter how many bandages they slap on it.
Gear focused games will always be inferior to character focused ones, prove me wrong, ye spergs who still give D3 the time of day
I know how it feels when a company makes something canon that you don't want to be, but you just need to accept the changes. Nothing's stopping you from having your own headcanon because none of it's real anyway.
I just remembered a series that people love to exclude certain games from their own "official" canon. It's Fallout and I know there's another really popular one, but it's escaping me right now.
>not made by original writers and dev team
It's literally official fanfiction.
Same as Disney Star Wars by the way.
But do go on and keep acting as if literal glorified fanfiction is "canon".
Seek psychiatric help, you're delusional.
>cookie cutter skills
That is the ONE thing you can't say about D3.
I'm tired of using the Sage's Jouney set, and some times I don't really need those extra death breaths? How do I compensate the loss of all those attributes?
Maybe because the nephalem ARE godly in comparison. And you view the world from their perspective.
because 99.9%of the community can't get a gf so they choose to become the gf insteadslapped supercharged Diablo's shit like it's nothing. The same Diablo that not only shat all over Imperius, who's supposed to be the greatest angel warrior, but also his entire army without even being anywhere near him.
>updating the thing after so much time
That's Blizzard for you. There's a reason why everyone loves them. They know that you have to spend money to promote yourself. It's not just a "blizzard loves you and gives you free shit" thing,though. Updating Diablo 3 won't make that game generate more money, but the players will remember that and will be more likely to pay for their next game /expansion /subscription whatever. And it works. The Starcraft 2 community is begging for microtransactions, if they release an expansion for Diablo 3, most of the players will buy it, people still preorder Legion, even after Warlords of Shits, Hearthstone is a gold mine, HotS still exists only because Blizzard made it, and everyone was in love with Overwatch even before they showed anything because OMG NEW BLIZZARD GAME
