I really can't wait to send Lilith back!

I know Activision Blizzard has been in the news a lot lately. Some of it has been objectively good, although not a lot. Some of it has been bad. Most of it has been ‘meh’. News on Diablo IV was good at the start, but then took a bit of a rollercoaster once it came out. Then it hit the back burner once Baldur’s Gate 3 released.

But I’ve been trying to keep an eye on the game since it’s release. Especially the talk around how the game plays on the Steam Deck. It was a game I was willing to try and install on mine if I ever got my hands on it.

Luckily, it came to Steam. It even launched their as Steam Deck verified so I didn’t have to worry. With one hurdle down, all I needed to do is scrounge up some cash to finally pick it up.

However, Steam and Blizzard had other plans. During the Thanksgiving holiday, they offered up a free trial of the game that let you play as much as you could until you hit the level 20 cap. I celebrated because I knew this was going to be a good amount of fun.

That was until I hit the level cap nearly two days in. I was sucked in. All I wanted to do was play Diablo. I forgot there was a level cap until Lilith’s face suddenly appeared on my screen. It was then I was reminded of the cap and was told to go purchase the game if I wanted more.

I still want more, but alas, these bills aren’t going to take care of themselves.

Here’s to the game finally appearing on Game Pass in 2024.
