A fixed-angle-view roguelike.
My general conclusion is that it's a good game, but doesn't have enough variety of abilities.
Path of Exile - (2013 game) is better in terms of difficulty, complexity and player-immersion. In fact, Diablo 3 has been copying features straight from Path of Exile. Doing things badly, but, still, obviously copying.
Properly titled Diablo III

I saw that there was a recent patch, and since I was bored I checked it out again. I heard that they gave more bank space, which was a huge issue for me.
My characters don't make sense and seem weak as fuck. It looks like I was experimenting with some gear and ideas.. but since there's no way to have gear sets and specs I can't figure anything out.
I dicked around for a bit, but I see I was not given more bank space so fuck this game.
I've been playing a bit more.
They copied enough of Path of Exile - (2013 game) to make the game a good bit better, including abilities.. sortof, but it's way too easy, and way too derivative.
- Not enough character slots
- Not enough stash tabs
No transmog sets
- It's too easy to fuck up one's transmog and not be able to get back to what one had.
- Dyes are obnoxious to get.
It's not possible to know what a piece of gear will look like before using every single dye combination on every piece of gear.
.. and lots more that I might think to write down later.
Things have changed since I last looked. The game is still unfairly difficult at point, but I have a silly good build.
My general conclusion has been that it's too fucking hard and has a busted gear system.
