So, thinking of picking this up. I've read up a little and I'm just bored of looking for clear answers to my questions.
1. How is the combat? I'm a fan of direct real time control. Point and click like Diablo, even though it is more or less real time, doesn't interest me; I like to feel like I have direct control over the attack. I didn't like DA1 because of the 'click on the bad guy you want to attack' set up, it felt like telling your character to attack instead of just attacking. I hope that makes sense. I don't mind having to go into the tactical view for party management and in difficult situations, but I'm concerned about how the characters play directly.
2. How is the co-op and multiplayer. I think it was Co-Optimus that said you can play the main campaign in co-op, but also said the controls were different and it sounded like more of the point and click style of gameplay. Can you drop in/out co-op into the main campaign if you start it in single-player? Is there PVP and how is it integrated?
3. I loved Oblivion, but ended up burned out to the point where Skyrim and the Fallouts wore thin on me pretty quickly. Souls games on the other hand, it seems I can play them endlessly. The Diablo's don't grab me largely because of the control scheme. This is a big game, did it keep you engaged long term or was it a push to finish in the end because of starting to feel repetitive?
4. Is the next gen difference very significant? I guess I'll be picking up a PS4 eventually for Bloodborne and to delay my PC upgrade, but if it's just a bit better looking then I'll stick with PS3 and continue to put off a new system.
Thanks for the input, I know the answers are out there but I'm bored of reading through standard review crap to pick out the pieces that matter to me.
