Sundays are typically D&D night for my friends and me, but we didn’t play for a couple of reasons.
One of my friends couldn’t make it and two others had to be in and out for a few reasons.
So instead of D&D we played video games!
We also showed Diablo 3 off to one of our friends who hadn’t played it yet.
The original Diablo game came out in the 90’s and gained amazing success.
Diablo play focuses around killing monsters and collecting the magic items that fall from their bodies.
The magic items are stuff like shields, hats, rings, swords, shirts, etc. All stuff that your character wears in the game.
The game has a interesting story to play through, but after that’s been done the goal moves from the story to collecting more magic stuff.
There are certain extremely powerful magic items called legendary items.
The later goal of the game is collecting the perfect set of legendary items to make your character the most powerful that it can be.
At least that’s the goal for me. Other people can, of course, have separate goals for their own character if they wish.
The original Diablo game was so successful within its genre that subsequent games that use a similar interface and magical item system have been called Diablo clones.
Diablo 2 quickly outsold the first Diablo and the third game has done even better than that.
I started playing with Diablo 2 around when its expansion pack came out.
I’ve recently got back into playing Diablo 3 because its expansion pack was just released last month.
Diablo 3’s biggest improvement for me is the ease of playing with your friends.
Diablo 2 had a few minor barriers to playing with your friends.
Diablo 3 has no such barriers. You literally just click one button to join your friends in a game.
Playing with my friends makes the game a lot more fun. I probably wouldn’t have picked it up again if playing with them wasn’t an option.

That’s all for tonight!
