    Not that I had many hopes after Diablo 3, but goddamn. Did it really have to go down this route? Is this what Blizzard thinks of Diablo as an IP? Look at your smartphone games. ARPG are dime a dozen, re-skinned to suit whatever property is currently popular. I guess Diablo is now on that level.

    Games made with IPS LCD-s as baseline "somehow" turn out plasticky, have garbage of a dynamic range with blue glow , and an absolute eyesore in motion, like they can't catch these flaws during production , nevermind keeping up with the original titles,lol.

    I remember when I got play the beta for diablo 3 I uninstalled it after 10 minutes. Rpg mechanics are bare bones. Why even play a ARPG if the rpg part of it sucks? The action part of it already bad and extremely repetitive. You better of playing a random beat em up arcade game from the 80-90s.

    Look at that disappointment on those faces. :lol:

    I don't know what is the bigger betrayal, this or the Command and Conquer mobile game.

    To be fair, Diablo 3 and Mobile Gaming are like two peas in a pot.

    So... a remake of WC3 with slightly less aged graphics and a Diablo mobile game.
    That's one way to dig your own grave, I guess.

    Ironically a Diablo 2 remake would have made the fans happy, and they could have done a shitty WC mobile game instead?

    It's hilarious to see all the Diablo 3 fans losing their minds at how Blizzard is about to casualize the shit out of their game. Reminds me of a younger me, when Blizzard casualized the shit out of Diablo 2.
