Morning Gaming: Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition

I have been getting up at 6:00 am now that I am once again a member of the full-time workforce. I need to leave the house by 7:15 to get to work on time. I currently (and for the foreseeable future) and sporting a buzzcut and goatee. So my morning rituals of make coffee, let the dog out, shower, and feed the pets only take about 20-30 minutes. Thus leaving me with 45 minutes of uninterrupted gaming time before I go to work.

Recently this time has been filled with Diablo 3. Its one of the very few games I own on multiple platforms. I have a copy for PC that I received as part of Blizzard’s offer of a free copy if you subscribe to WoW for a year. By the time I stopped playing it, my top character had not reached the level cap of 60, I’d killed Diablo at least 5 times and had no incentive to keep playing.



I had heard that when the auction house was removed the game completely changed. So I stuck my foot back in and appreciated the changes but still didn’t level cap my Witch Doctor.

My buddy picked it up for PS3 and we played it one night together for a few hours. It was a great game and I really enjoyed the couch co-op. So when I found a used xbone copy at my local retro gaming shop, I bought it for less than $20. It included the expansion that I never played as well.

So now on the xbone I am level 57, I have only killed Diablo once on this edition and the game is anything but difficult, even when I put it as high as I can. I am working through the expansion as a Crusader and basically am untouchable.


I will get through the game soon and maybe try my hand at a hardcore character as part of the new season system they have. Hopefully it will be a bit more difficult.

But at least for now, my mornings always start off good by eliminating the hordes of hell.
