    Well, that's Blizzard's hope, anyway.

    Curious there's no Mac version, Blizzard has always been Mac friendly, especially with Diablo games. (no horse in the race, I use both.) (and, not playing this game.)

    Overall, Blizzard is fighting a losing war for any hype. This game has none.

    But paypigs will probably flock to this game. Blizzard's job is keeping them around, much like how casinos work very hard to keep whales in their gaming rooms.

    edit: forgot the base game is free.

    Children/minors aren't allowed in those coffee shops, and are not allowed to buy weed there. The anti-gambling laws are largely based on keeping the loot box gambling shenanigans away from kids/minors. But if you want to play the moral equivalence fallacy game, have at it.

    I took a look and the DI store looks to be decent for a F2P game, doesn't seem to have the ad spam of other games I play.

    They say it is, but do not expect to get any meaningful progress without paying to play. The first reviews say it is a game that is pay-to-win in a very bad way.

    It's a D3 clone with P2W and predatory microtransactions typical of a cash-grab mobile game.

    So... yeah. I'm glad I'm a guy who doesn't have a phone I guess.

    It's super smooth presentation and gameplay that ultimately masks a shallow and empty experience that was intentionally designed by a corporation to manipulate and extract money from addicts and whales.

    Banned in the Netherlands and Belgium, so guess I won't be playing it as only games with blatant gambling/lootbox bs get banned here. :-)

    Why someone would spend 1 minute on the PC version of this is beyond me. Phone? Fine. PC? Go play D3.

    Once the initial hype has landed, most people will have realised how heavily p2w this game is. I'd wager most players that are left will be phone gamers and whales. Then again, thats all Blizzard needs.

    Make way for the Whales you freeloading plebeians! They've been practising that swiping fin for this day.

    This is a disappointment on PC. I've been wanting a PC Diablo with full controller support like D3 has on the switch. But Diablo Immortal, like D2 Resurrected, has a floating cursor you move around the screen for a touch-centric UI. And it's so fiddly that I end up just giving up and using the mouse.

    I hope D4 has full controller support on the PC--with a UI designed for a controller--without a floating cursor you move around the screen to use the UI.

    The resolution is awful too with no apparent way to raise it.

    the in game shop they have is nearly non existent unless you count those skins. power gain you get is miniscule if you decide to spend some money .

    and it is very fun to play on phone

    Like what? More aggressive than an ad every two minutes? More aggressive than gating play time behind buying things? Or is this just another hysterical rant from someone who doesn't understand what a mobile game is.

    This is rich coming from you, looking at your post history.

    The game is a cash grab, like 99% of mobile games are. Stop pretending it isnt.

    Remember, this game was never made for you to begin with.

    The reason it was even an idea in Blizzard's head, is because they want to cash out on the chinese mobile gaming industry and its whales

    The only games that arent cash grabs these days are some indie games.

    DI is pretty fun if you're mature enough to know what you're going into. Instantly saying "buuhuu p2w cash grab" just means it isn't for you. Move on, stop caring about it. I know it's hard m, you want confirmation on your opinions. But try to just.. not.

    But I've already beaten D3's story. I haven't seen DI's story. And long term phone gaming is uncomfortable to me, I'd rather play on PC lol

    But I'm not the target market, I don't do the seasons very frequently. I play to beat the story and then move on to other games unless I have the itch for the combat.

    It's a decent mobile game. Not a great PC game, but it's definitely decent on the tablet if you don't want to spend the day at the desk.

    Lmao, what. Confirmation of my opinions? I don't need it, it's already been confirmed the game is p2w. And as for me caring, I do not. I play games I enjoy whether they are p2w or not, luckily with the discipline not to spend stupid amounts of money on them.

    I'm not even saying others can't enjoy DI. If you enjoy it, all the better for you. I was merely pointing out that said poster should stop pretending the game is something it isn't.

    The term P2W is redundant for a mobile game. You're not enlightening anyone. Complaining about it is ridiculous. Lashing out at others is worse.

    It's not a cashgrab if it's using the business model that this sort of entertainment uses. It's not bad because of the business model. Stop the hysteria already.
