@Zuljaras Which is funny because this isn't the case with the Wizards meteor storm, which you would have thought would have some of the animation removed, but from using it, it doesn't seem like it.

Maybe it's not as much as a flurry as Xbox/PC/PS.... I cant remember how big the meteor shower was.

@SuperJoon Well if that is the case then the reviewers scores of the game should drop from 9/10 to at least 7/10.

This sort of thing can only spoil your enjoyment if you are determined to let it. It’s a non issue for me. And the game runs exceptionally well.

@Roamer This, complete non issue. I have never noticed anything in the game, and I am loving being able to play it wherever I like.

Depends what you mean by "this sort of thing". I agree that purely visual issues like distant monsters not being animated or downgraded attack animations are definitely an acceptable price to pay for having D3 on the go. It sounds like some people are encountering issues where spells actually don't work for some characters. That seems like a bigger problem. Still not enough to avoid the game if you like it, but worth being aware of so you can avoid playing those characters until Blizzard fixes it.

@Roamer not the biggest issue, just an annoying one. Sometimes I have to stop and double check if monsters are actually dead, because the MS animation isn't playing and I don't know if it's lag (when playing online) or something else. Not deal braking but not nice either in GR (I'm playing softcore: hardcore would be a different story!)
So happy I can play my beloved D3 on Switch, I really can't complain!

The original fire has died and gone, but the riot inside moves on.

@Lovecraft_1 There are 5 acts with 5 "world" maps. Each with a "town". It's a hack and slash loot-based dungeon crawler ARPG. You depart down, explore a randomly generated overworld, explore "caves/dungeons/rifts/etc", kill ridiculous quantities of monsters, to gain loot drops, to upgrade your gear, to kill more difficult monsters, to gain loot drops, to upgrade your gear, to kill more difficult monsters, to gain loot drops to.......

Your character levels up and gains abilities on the skill tree, but your character stats are gear driven more than intrinsic stat drive (prior Diablo games had character stats too.) It's a perpetual loot grind in randomly generated maps for randomly generated (and some pre-defined rare) loot. Combat is a mixture primary attacks and spells, of which, on console, you can only have 3 attacks bound at a time from your available list. There are 7 character classes (barbarian, crusader, wizard, necromancer, witch doctor, demon hunter, monk) each with their own skill tree. Gameplay seems simple and basic at first, but the idea of facing ever larger hordes of ever stronger monsters makes you have to prioritize your energy/mana and tactics for crowd control, etc.

It's the definition of a PC action RPG/hack & slash. Coming from P&P it won't seem terribly similar. It's not a D&D type game or anything like that. Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sin, Wasteland 2, etc are more P&P type structures.

Finished the story mode and currently running through rifts and greater rifts. Can see me sinking a lot of hours into this game.

It's an Easter egg put in by the developers to mock those fans who claimed early on that Diablo III was too bright and colorful. You can get to it with either the Staff of Herding or by killing a rare Rainbow Goblin.

@RetroGamerAndrew I have just read that many abilities that have multiple projectiles etc. were experiencing the same missing animations or have lowered visual effects. I cant confirm it 100% and Blizzard have not confirmed it but I think this is the case we are having.

If you are having the animation 100% of the shots in normal rift on normal difficulty I think that this is the case we are having and I doubt this will be fixed.

This is probably a side effect of the Switch version using the "Low FX" setting. If you turn on that same setting in the PC version then you'll get similar anomalies.

The occasional monster standing around after dying happens on the PC version, too. I suspect it's a sync issue with the server. I've never seen it playing offline on the Switch.

@Mountain_Man Yeh it can be. Happens from time to time, honestly I got used to it and it doesn't bother me as much as I'd thought.

BTW I'm working my way to season journey Conquests and looking for a group to split Boss Mode conquest. If any (preferably experienced and decently geared) EU player wants to join please give me a shout here or join me on Adult Switch Gamer's discord: https://discord.gg/RBT4Zm4

This game is brilliant! Just finished act 2. I’m really getting into the groove of the game.

Edit: Was visiting the Diablo III forum on Blizzard’s website for some tips, but damn is that place toxic or what? Especially after the Immortal fiasco. People who are even a tiny bit positive gets downvoted en masse. Sad place.

I just bought the switch to play with my Daughter in Los Vegas online . I normally play PS4 .
This first time playing Diablo 3. Is there a achievement ranking like PS4 ?
Thanks

@infofrog If you choose to play seasonal there's leaderboard rankings.

Got my copy today and I have never ever played a Diablo game before but because I love the old Gauntlet games on NES I couldn't resist the 43€ price point. Love it so far and it really makes one to want to play more. I am playing on Normal and right now I can't believe that people are trying all the higher difficulty levels. My only complain is that the text size is too small on a 22'' when sitting 2 1/2 meters away. Wish you could adjust screen text size

@Quarth most games forums end up like that. Games developers’ biggest enemy are the fans of their games.

@Roamer True. I can understand the negative reactions at the Blizzcon presentation, but people are extremely toxic about everything that’s not Diablo or Diablo II. There seems to be hate against console players as well.

The funniest thing about the official forums is that you'll have people hating on the game who continue to actively play with hundreds and even thousands of hours logged.
