Woo I find that rude.D3 was absolutely abysmal in the story, and the devs did not take it seriously or do it subdued enough. It was over-the-top all the time.
....I hope they manage to be subtle and dark, and not go tongue-in-cheek or anything. I'd really like it if I enjoyed replaying the campaign multiple times, and not try to stay away from it like I did in D3.
No, I loved the story beat where Cain, a beloved and long-lived character, gets killed by a butterfly lady.D3 abysmal story, did you skipped all dialogs or what? D3 tongue-in-check story writing? Writing focusing on sarcasm if not auto sarcasm and not serious? That's not the D3 I played. There's no NPC as touching in D2 than is Leah in D3. I don't see how you can have follow her as a sacrastic writing and non serious writing. Ok it's not dark, but not any great game writing need be dark, no way D2 is that dark for me, far from D1 at least.
There's a 19-episode series from a notorious Diablo Youtuber if you're interested. I think he has a nice voice/accent, so it's a good watch for people who don't know the setting/story and are curious. It's all canon lore, no fanfic.Diablo... story ?????? Cool cinematics ok, but story ??
Rude? Why? Did you write Diablo 3?Woo I find that rude.
Three points:Rude? Why? Did you write Diablo 3?
For my part, D3 is the only Diablo I've played, so I can't compare it to 1 or 2, but taking it by itself, the story put me to sleep. It wasn't bad, or badly delivered, just not interesting. It was fantasy peril 101. My issue was with the too easy gameplay.
You must've played a completely different game than I. The only emotions I had was cringing and eye-rolling.Three points:
- That's rude for Lhea who got a touching fate.
- That's rude for writers, quote something is rude isn't necessarrily just for you. FYI there's a lot of humans on earth and empathy is supposed to be a human characteristic.
- That's basic psychological behavior, when any human love/like something, he feels insulted when some nobody or prince says it's crap. So let say that's rude for my tastes and preferences.
Too easy gameplay, can you elaborate? It just means too easy difficulty? Well, I don't know the point to lock the two highest difficulty levels in D3, for sure it can bother first play of some players. But just argue the gameplay is inherently easy is requesting some elaboration, but too bad you could not use D2 comparison point, perhaps Torchlight 2?
For the story, let say it's a matter of taste, but I would argue there's ton of much worse main stories, and a mass of games totally unable to trigger any attachment to any NpC, and even less able to trigger an emotion for a NPC at level it is for Lhea.
No there's a difference of sensibility nothing more, pretty sure plenty D3 players get touch a lot by Lhea, many players asked for a sequel making her come back, pretty sure nobody ever requested any NPC dead in Diablo 2 make any come back.You must've played a completely different game than I. The only emotions I had was cringing and eye-rolling.
As far as respect for another's work, I'm pretty confident they didn't put much energy or thought into it.
Years ago there was some Blizzard dev responding to negative feedback about the story and writing, and he basically said something along the lines of "what did you expect, it's a story about angels and demons fighting".
I think their ego is fine.
And in the most disrespectful way, for such an fan favorite character. That's the moment I knew the story was gonna be shit.I played through D3 once on all difficulties. The only thing I remember about the story is that Deckard Cain died.
Lol typical empty collection of words affirmations. One more guy trying looking smart or interesting by making a charge on a game.
