A couple of days ago, my mom asked what R. and I were planning for our first wedding anniversary. I told her that we were going to buy ourselves Diablo III. She said, that’s great, but what about dinner? When I said that we can’t really afford to do both and Diablo would ultimately provide many, many more hours of quality time together, she insisted on buying us the game so that we could go out to dinner for the big day. (Thanks Mom!)
I’ve never played the Diablo series, but R. has, and has been waiting for years for the third installment to come out. Considering that II came out in 2000, it’s been a rather long wait. We’ve always enjoyed playing dungeon-crawlers (back in the day we went a little crazy for Baldur’s Gate and Champions of Norath), so I didn’t need much convincing that Diablo III should be our next co-op game.
Last night, after going out for a wonderful vegan-for-me/omni-for-him dinner at Toronto restaurant The Beet, we got started on the game. He’s a witch doctor, I’m a monk, and I think we’re going to be a fantastic team.
What are your favorite co-op games? Are you lucky enough to be in a relationship with a gaming partner?
