Play Time With Diablo III Open Beta Weekend

Did you have fun playing DiabloIII over the weekend? I did, even though I got kicked out from the server several times. Funny because some people found DiabloIII boring, maybe they missed out on the first 2 installments. Pulling inspiration from Diablo 1 &2, definitely, I can say that Diablo3 is considered as one of the much-awaited games of Blizzard.

What happened was all part of a stress test, it's understandable if play time went rough over the weekend. DiabloIII is the in-between of games. It's not really that boring and it's not too complicated and stressful to play yet, it guarantees a satisfying adventure. My short journey through a monk was still awesome. I can't wait to have a copy.

Doin' The Move with PlayStation 3

It's been a pretty hectic March for me and my family. One of the things that's keeping me busy is the new PS3 Move.
It's a choice between Xbox and PS3. Since we have been using PlayStation our whole life, from PS1,  to PS2 it's best to get something that is familiar to us already. Besides, it's a super good deal because PlayStation 3 is also a Blu-ray Player. PlayStation Move uses the PlayStation Eye camera to track the wand's position, and inertial sensors in the wand to detect its motion. -source-
The PlayStattion 320GB Move Bundle came with :

  • PlayStation®Move motion controller (wireless)
  • HDMI cables, etc... 
  • PlayStation®Eye camera
  • The DUALSHOCK®3 Wireless Controller
  • a bonus game which is the Sports Champions.

  • We bought a Vertical Stand separately with charging stations for the controllers and a rack for the games. A wireless keypad later on. We tried it when we were in search of the best game console in the market. I have been working out through the dance moves of Everybody Dance and the Michael Jackson Experience. Total workout. At the same time, it's enjoyable. You wouldn't even notice the time, a person can practically dance the whole day. Gran Turismo is also one of my favorites. In PlayStation 2 it's the only game that kept me occupied. Better graphics with PlayStation 3. More cars, more action.
    The Michael Jackson Experience is my favorite because I'm can dance to my favorite Michael Jackson moves. Well before, I just watch him dance on television, wondering if I can do such dance moves. Now, as tribute, PlayStation 3 was able to come out with the Michael Jackson Experience. I chose it over Zumba, it is a must-have.

    Diablo III Open Beta Weekend!

    If you haven't heard... it's Diablo III Open Beta Weekend!

    Testing the game's servers through a stress test

    Please go to this link below and you will find the page of information. Another link is also provided on the mentioned page where you can download Diablo 3. This open access is good for 3 days, exclusive for players with a valid Battle. net account.

    This gaming blog of mine became active again because of this Open Beta Weekend for Diablo 3. I have been waiting for this trial. It's been a long time since I finished Diablo 1 and 2. With the trial, I created a Monk that is close to my old character---The Assassin. If I'm going to be asked for a feedback...  So far, everything is running smoothly. Few characters though, but it gave me the feeling that they're saving room on adding more characters in the near future, I hope so.

    Story wise, there's something mysterious about it, which I totally dig, because as a "hero" in this game, we're always in search for the truth, we want to unveil the mystery and kill the big boss in the end. I also like the W0W-like set up, if you play W0W it's going to be easy switching to Diablo 3. Graphics? way better than the first 2. I thought that it's not going to be that nice because I've been hearing comments from other players. But hell with those comments! People, you don't compare Starcraft with Diablo or even worst, with the World of Warcraft. All games are created differently, you gotta play it yourself  to see and to be able to get the feel of the game. In this post, are just  initial observations made through the Open Beta Weekend for Diablo3. There's more to explore and to discover in this new game.

     I gotta say, Blizzard has done it again... it's addicting and I am going to purchase Diablo 3 asap!
