Diablo III

I’m a big Diablo fan. The game and I go back a long way when I was still a teenager. Brings back a lot of memories, this Diablo. I’ve played virtually every version there is, and enjoyed every moment of being unproductive with it. So, when the latest title came out – Diablo III – I was as happy as a lark. ‘Finally!’, I thought, and went ahead to buy this game.

It was the biggest fucking mistake.

Blizzard Entertainment absolutely murdered the game. It is now officially the WORST game I’ve ever played. No mistake, the graphics and gameplay of Diablo III is absolutely stunning, although it is nothing of a breakthrough (like the first Diablo in franchise). But what’s the use of all that when it can’t be played? “What do you mean it can’t be played?” – well, you see, because this game is designed in such a way, that you’d require an active connection through the internet to a bunch of fucked up servers called ‘battle.net’ to play (yes, even for a single player game), which unfortunately, goes down more often than a debt ridden hooker on prospective clients’ dicks to earn extra bucks. And when the servers go down, so would your game. That is why fans all over the world who purchased Diablo fucking III are screaming bloody murder right now, for either not being able to start the game at all, or keep getting disconnected mid game. It’s basically unplayable. If you think this is a game that will let you pass time in a quiet weekend afternoon, you can forget about it. It’s not gonna happen because it is impossible.

So, instead of being like how an entertaining game should be, this piece of shit would give you high blood pressure, because half the time you spend using this product will be on cursing some faceless fat people who didn’t use their brain to design something this important, and another quarter of the time will be spent on giving up hope on people and to contemplate of being a xenophobic. You’re going to be deluged with so much rage and disappointment, that it’ll change you entirely. This is how fucked up Diablo III is (and I see it as a reflection of how fucked up the society is…). Stay away from this shit, it’s not worth a single cent.
