I'll never understand anyone who acts likes Diablo is some sort of super in-depth, complicated game that couldn't possibly play well on controller. The gameplay is about as simple as a game can be.

It’s mostly mouse targeting mechanics that are at issue here. Blizzard found some decent compromises and Diablo 3 is awesome on a game pad.

To be honest, most builds relying on targeted skills were a pain to play on console, especially once you started doing rifts. I fully expect Blizzard to "solve" this problem in D4 by largely eliminating skills benefiting from precise targeting across all classes.

Seriously. I'm still afraid all of this recent Blizzard drama is going to affect its release.
I they halted work on their biggest franchise, WOW, odds are that their Diablo 2 remake will suffer a delay also.

Who the fuk wants a d2 remake? If you haven't played it 10x already then you deserve to be kicked down into the mariana trench.

It’s not really a remake, it’s more like a huge update that adds a new graphical overlay. It’s even compatible with your old saves.

God it’s so good. So glad with how they captured the original. Gameplay is absolutely perfect and the graphics strike the perfect balance between modern but not losing the essence of the original. Can’t wait to sink hundred of hours into this.
