While most of my twitter feed was filled with angry players upset over the Diablo 3 errors that kept cropping up, I was having a different sort of experience. I like the fact that you need to be logged in to play, and I love the fact that my friends can jump into the game no matter where I am. I love the ease that this can be done with – although it did catch me a bit off guard to see Tipa suddenly appear in my instance I quickly figured out there’s a setting in options -> social that allows your bnet friends to jump into your instances from their main menu.
My witch doctor is level 9, exploring crypts, killing wives who have turned evil. I absolutely love this class, it suits all my particular ‘wishes’ such as ranged attacks (or closer if I switch them out), pets, casting. An amazing voice over that I can’t get enough of when I listen to the story line.
Tipa, Shadowgeist, and I wandered around for the better part of an hour, me with my ghoulish dogs and Tipa with her bow of awesomeness. Every time her machine gun like sounds went off and there was a bright flare of light I secretly giggled. It was fun.
That’s what games are all about, aren’t they? Fun?
I did eventually get kicked out with the 3007 error, but unlike those I see who are incredibly upset, I’ll just wait for it to get fixed. Patiently. I still had a great time playing with friends.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
