I’m stoked, we made it through one more round of Diablo 3. Surprisingly enough, I’m still enjoying the game. I like watching the story unfold.
I’m usually an MMO player, so I don’t really play many games that have a storyline that you just kind of follow along as you go.
CrankyB (Void) is helping me keep calm even when Demon Hunter gets mobbed. It can be annoying. Especially when I hit a lag spike and it takes 5 minutes for my system to catch up. Dealing with laggy net has been an issue I’ve been dealing with for a bit now. I just have to remember to take a deep breath and focus on working around lag issues.
I also have to remember to stay back as far as I can, shoot as fast as I can and try to stay out of the way. Those seem to be my best tactics.
The skills keep getting more fun and interesting. Some you think are going to be awesome, don’t seem to live up to much until you get to add a rune to them. Others are a blast right out of the gate.
I’m looking forward to the next set of skills. Tonight though we called it off just after hitting the end of Act 1. I’m not complaining, I actually got a chance to see the end of Act 1.
The crafting system is still kind of meh, but I’m only at level 2 or so I think. It also seems to be one hell of a gold sink. That’s probably not such a big deal, I mean it drops off all kinds of stuff.
So far we haven’t crafted too many items. I’ve been stockpiling mats though, so I’m hoping that once I do see something I want to make, I’m good to go.
Sadly though I’ve had some rare stuff drop, and I’m not sure I want to replace it yet. I might though, we’ll see what happens.
Right now I’m sad I have to log out, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
