Diablo 3 – A Noob Friendly Hack and Slash PC Game

Well worth $60 and the eleven years many fans have been waiting.

I think I might be one of the ten people that haven’t ever played the Diablo series until this week.  The last Blizzard game I played at length was the first Warcraft on shareware.  Diablo was a pleasant surprise because it let me know from the get-go that it was going to be gentle when it came to introducing me to a new experience.

This game is a hack and slash version of Borderlands. 

If you want a game like Warcraft… go get Warcraft 3.

Diablo 3 allows you to either take on the enemies by yourself or team up with friends online and fight tougher foes (they get harder as you have more players to help you).  There are a few perks that come with teaming up with friends:

  1. Help fighting tougher enemies
  2. Better treasure and loot from defeating enemies

This game focuses on the ability to roam the world of Diablo 3 looking for a fight and arming your character with the best weapons for your class.  This game is so similar to Borderlands that it is really the best way to describe how the non-combat system works. My current class is a Demon Hunter named Lech.  I like to run around dual wielding crossbows.  I have been lucky to team up with my friend Deckon and he was awesome enough to hook me up with my first decent weapon.  Since that point back when I was a Level 3 I have found a lot more weapons that make me want to curse the day I was using my initial weapon.

If you want to get/play this game you will have to be sure that your PC can handle it.  Keep in mind that this game is NOT for consoles.

The system requirements can be found at Battle.net

Minimum specs should be avoided when gaming on PCs. This is often setting people up for less than optimal gaming experiences.
I am currently running a 460GTX and have a fantastic experience. If you can afford to do this type of computing, I highly suggest you roll with something with specs at or above these.

    1. For those people in the world who aren’t Diablo fanboys and may be more familiar with Borderlands it is a better comparison to help those new to Diablo to understand it through the original comparison.
