Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition Hits The Bargain Bin! #Diablo3


Amazon has reduced the price of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to $29.99.

Quote:
This Ultimate Evil Edition contains both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set, together in one definitive volume.
I know Evil Avatar has been waiting for a price drop on this.

I'd be a supporter of this, but too bad this has no purpose for pc fans of the game. Different servers for each version of the game. Pitty

That is a shame. Such an excellent game now, too. They've refined it from a lump of coal into a beautiful diamond, and it didn't take millions of years!

Just as a technical question which I have no earthly idea about, is it really complicated to enable cross-platform play? I understand the potential complications in a FPS, with k/m players against gamepad players and the mess that could entail, but this game seems tailor made for cross-platform co-op play.

Too expensive or difficult to implement?

yeah no clue why they haven't done it. The rolling mechanic on the console version could be implemented into the PC version to make them both awesome. I really like the way it plays on the PS4, better than the PC controls.

When I play Diablo 3 it's for a long time. I couldn't imagine having to hold a thumbstick in multiple directions for so long. I.e., kbm fa lyfe!

From what I understand the console version has a quick roll move. So I don't think cross platform would be a thing unless they took that out or added it to pc. I could be completely wrong though/

This is going to be one of the first titles I pick up when I grab a PS4 later this year. It was absolutely fantastic on PS3. Blizzard really nailed the control scheme IMO.

I thought they added a roll mechanism in the PC a few patches back?

Nope. No roll mechanics on PC.

There are other changes other than just the roll mechanic, I think the way that monsters spawn is different on both games as well as a few other minor things (drop rates, skill animations, etc.)

I played a little bit this week to kill some cows, but there wasn't anything particularly exciting about it.

Significantly fewer monsters spawn in the console versions of the game due to the way the controls work with a gamepad. While they did a great job of contorting the game to work with a controller, it also completely changed the way the game is played and the two styles simply don't mesh. There simply wouldn't be a way to mesh the two versions together because of version-specific tweaks and alterations. This is also why we haven't seen controller support for the PC version, either.

On the surface, it seems like it'd be an easy fix...but it really wouldn't be.

I spent about $100 on Diablo III and certainly got my money worth.

Eventually.

The game really, really was shit when it first launched and I am personally very sad that it didn't stay that way. Life was much better when I didn't have a little voice going "Ya know you can play Diablo III for a few rifts" in the background. Fucking Paragon 350 or whatever the fuck i'm at now.
