Diablo II – One of the Best Console Games of All Time

Diablo II – One of the Best Console Games of All Time

Posted by on Mar 21, 2017 in Gaming News |

You can never deny the replay value that Diablo II has, despite its graphics appearing quite dated. Also, its gameplay is very addictive whether you play single player mode or multiplayer mode.

There was a title before this, Diablo I and that game is also as addictive as this one. The sequel was one of the most anticipated of all time. It wasn’t surprising to the players seeing that Blizzard North was able to produce this game in a more entertaining and exciting way.

Yet while the gameplay style of hack-and-slash may seem very familiar to those who have already played the first game, Diablo II comes with a more complex gameplay, not to mention it has been much expanded also.

Diablo I was only focused on a single place where the hero had to go deeper into a dungeon and eradicate all evil that is in there. In exchange for all its complexities and the additional size, you will need to tolerate its low-resolution graphics plus some gameplay troubles than what you might to have expect from the games made by Blizzard.

The original Diablo series was mainly criticized for its short gameplay in its single player mode, including how there is this sole dungeon setting. Taking that into account, Diablo II is set in a larger game setting and the actions made by the player is not just focused in a single location.

The entire gameplay is divided into 4 distinct acts and comes with its own setting. Diablo II even permits outdoor exploration added to a series of dungeon explorations. Some players find the outdoor exploration not as exciting as they think it could have been.

Overall, Diablo II is exactly like the original – its main objective is to hack through legions of monsters, gain items it produces and enhance the abilities so that your character can confront even stronger and greater enemies as you advance.

This will be until you reach Diablo, the Lord of Terror. However, this time, it comes with a better story that will serve its players and an even better framework. The quests that you receive in towns and villages will no longer be random as they relate to each other.

Why Diablo 3 isn’t one of the best console games of all time?

Diehard fans of Diablo I and Diablo II will seethe when asked about what went wrong with the third installment, well at least from their point of view. Many gamers, most especially those who have not played the previous versions, will argue that Diablo III is a great game, but many of those who grew up with the original series will say so otherwise.

Their opinion is drawn from the fact that the third issue is just riding on the success that the first two versions got. What’s more, Diablo III is just exaggerating its graphics in order to give that wow factor to its players. Most Diablo fans agree that the third in the series has lost its intensity that the first two have. These are just some of the major reasons why the third version didn’t make it to the best top console games of all time.

Of course, you have to practice, the old saying – “Practice makes everything perfect”, is entirely suitable in this case.

Baseball in Overwatch?

Baseball in Overwatch?

Posted by on Sep 21, 2016 in Gaming News |

If you like, FPS games you’ve probably heard about Overwatch. In this game, players have so many possibilities due to the diversity of character types. There are over 20 characters in Overwatch, each with a special set of skills and abilities.

This is why players that became tired of constant battles in deathmatch, team deathmatch and other game modes created something for their own fun. Badminton is one of the games that players invented in Overwatch.

 

1st-image-overviewAbout Badminton in Overwatch.
Perhaps you’ve seen it perhaps it is better that you didn’t, but there are badminton matches on Overwatch official servers. Play is divided into two teams on an improvised court.

Another two players create a net by projecting a shield generating beam to one another. The judge is usually Junkrat as he is the only one with a grenade launcher.

The grenade acts as a ball and 4 Genji’s are players that make the team. Ingenious isn’t it. Genji’s are using their deflect ability and the ball goes from one side of the court to another.

Once the grenade explodes on one side of the court the opposite team wins a point, and Junkrat, the judge, is paying close attention to where and how the ball, in this case grenade, lands.
 
What about Baseball?
There could be baseball in Overwatch too, and players are already thinking of a way to respectfully represent a baseball game. The biggest issue is the court as the baseball court is pretty big. Finding role players won’t be a big problem.

One player can choose Genji character to be the batter deflecting the pitcher’s ball. The pitcher can obviously be Junkrat and a catcher can be any player with low health that will sacrifice himself for the team.

Runners can be any fast character players with high enough stamina to make them travel across great distances. So, in theory, this can work, it is up to players of Overwatch to determine if it can be actually applied in an online game.

 

overview-2nd-imageGame of limitless possibilities.

Overwatch is one of those games where you can do just about anything and players that play badminton online are living proof that even other games can exist within this one. Game developers never intended this game to be so adaptive to new ideas made by players.

What remains to be seen is how far players will go to invent something new. Game developers were already inspired by the creativity of players as they created a new mode called Rocket league. It resembles Rocket leagues where players play the ball to one another to strike a point by throwing the ball in the goal.
 
In future gaming, we can expect to have only a couple of games where players are allowed to do anything. It will be like a virtual playground and players are the ones that decide what game will be played on which server. We hope that we will see this type of games soon.
