You could get into D3 without picking up 1 and 2...just pick up a primer from wiki about the Diablo Lore. It's some pretty great storytelling.
Torchlight is a Diablo clone, save for the 'cutsie fantasy setting' and the pet you could send off to clean out your backpack. If you liked Torchlight, you'll love Diablo. D3 is darker and gritter than TL.
I loved Torchlight so I'm thinking I'll have to give Diablo 3 a go. Hopefully my computer can run it.
I picked up the Doomsday Edition of Resistance 3 on clearance from Target...the one that comes with PS Move, and the sharpshooter. So I decided to hook it up and fire up Resistance 3. After 3 hours of PS3 updates, game updates and installs, I finally get control of my character...Who the hell designed this thing? Press this button here, press this button all the way over here on the other side. Crouch is "O", but the Nav controller has no "O" button, thats on the Glow stick (or one of these mini-buttons on either side of the trigger that I cant reach)...OK, so let me press...OH, GOD THEY'RE SHOOTING AT ME, GET BEHIND COVER...Wait, the Nav controller is spinning me in a circle...I'm dead!
Am I doing this wrong?
I have to play this with a regular controller it seems.
Ughh motion controls are the worst. Its the one way Microsoft manages to disappoint me at every E3 lately.
