I normally don’t write about computer games. I was at work the other day and my co-workers were talking about a game called “Diablo 3″, I have heard of the Diablo series but never really was into computer games. Well, I can’t really say that- for a couple years I was pretty addicted to the MMORPG, Runescape. It sucked. Haha, but anyways…
Diablo 3 is scheduled to release sometime in March and after viewing the trailers and gameplay videos on YouTube, I will most likely be purchasing Diablo 3 and see what all the Diablo-Fuss is about. It looks very similar to WoW, in the gameplay action. Obviously it will be a fairly repetitive and “clicky” game, but I am totally fine with that.
The part that really caught my attention was the in-game auction house. What I mean by “in-game auction house”, is that you can actually sell your in-game items for REAL cash (not game gold, I am talking U.S. currency), having other players bid on your rare items right in front of your eyes. This really caught my attention, most other computer games I have seen really frown upon the selling of items for real cash. It seems like Diablo 3 will be the first computer game to ENCOURAGE the selling of in-game items for real money.
I think Diablo 3 will be a great game and I am excited to start playing in hopes of hitting a rare item and selling it for real money!
