I have been looking for a new game. PC i7 win7. Dialbo looks like it might be a good fit. never played any of them. Those of you who have played the series, where would you recommend I begin? IS first dialbo worth playing, should I skip and start at dialbo 2, etc. Which expansions are worth it? Thanks for advice..
Never heard of Dialbo.
Any relation to Diablo?
Going back to Diablo 2 is going back 10+ years in gaming technology. It's easily my favorite of the three. The eXpansion made it even better. Like I said, though, it doesn't look so great by today's standards.
I think Dialbo 3: RoS is your best choice. It has expanded in content and complexity immensely since the luke-warm release of Dialbo 3. It is probably the best Dialbo right now. And the expansion to Dialbo 3, RoS, is a must have. Blizzard frequently runs sales of Dialbo 3 + RoS bundled, usually at 40 dollars.
If you want to get into those type of games give a try to Path of Exile.
In my opinion, it is the best one - especially if you like theory crafting, and making various builds - and it is for free.
You did it too, Heavenfall!
is this a joke I don't know about?
Personally I think Path of Exile isn't quite as good as Dialbo 3, however, they are quite similar in the initial 10-15 hours of gameplay.
What does PoE's endgame look like nowadays? I haven't played for a long time. In Dialbo 3, you do timed rifts that increase in difficulty until you are defeated, and higher difficulty equals more/better drops.
Get Diablo 3 + xpac...don't bother getting just vanilla. It's great now. The only reason I don't play it anymore is I have a hardcore main and nearly die everytime I try to get back into the game...then again I usually try to pickup Diablo after a few drinks soo I think that might be my bigger issue. Anyways, D3 retcons some of the lore and re-explains everything so you won't miss any details if you skip the first two.
thank you for all the advice.... appreciate it!
Game requires PC to be on line while playing? That presents problems if connection speed is not sufficient?
Grim Dawn is probably one of the best Diablo clones out. Just as deep and cool as Diablo in my book, and far cheaper. Plus with Grim Dawn, if you stop playing for a while, you don't have to worry about Korean hackers taking over your account.
It could. I'm fairly spoiled and have a pretty good internet connection. With a background of doing tech support for an ISP many connection issues can be resolved by having them come out checking your connection. Depending on the company you would only pay if they find something on your end. In many cases they have improved the connection in the area but the household connections need some tweaking. Just make sure you get a quote prior to them going out to your home.
The first Diablo was possibly the first isometric ActionRPG. It's reeally simple by todays standards (and really easy as well) so it might be a good startingpoint.
The Hell mod for Diablo
The Hell mod is a must if you know Diablo. From my experience with the Paladin, it makes it so hard it's just right. It also adds alot of items.
After you play it vanilla, you HAVE to get The Hell! SO recommended! Don't use the stash. More challenge that way
Diablo II + Lord of Destruction is a pillar of ActionRPGs! It was my best game for a loong time! I never actually got to seriously play some classes
Diablo III you have more than enough info on. It's too simplified with the attributes (STR, AGI etc....) but I'll play it eventually.
