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.

Diablo Immortal's closed beta introduces the Necromancer as a playable class, alongside a host of other changes, such as controller support, set items, Hell IV difficulty and loot that scales more with difficulty, eight player Helliquary raids, new Cycle of Strife updates called Challenge of the Immortal and The Final Battle, and a new Battleground ladder.

It's available to Android users in Australia and Canada, with Korea, Japan and China to follow in the coming weeks.

Still really looking forward to this. Happy to see there will be controller support. Would've been really disappointing to boot it up and not have that. Following all of this development time, I think this will end up being a really good game.
