    Diablo 3 is amazing with controller, sadly only on consoles. Grim Dawn also has good controller support on the PC. ARPGs in general can be very fun with controller, it is just a matter of tuning the interface for it. I think Wolcen is set to come out on consoles too and their forum says controller support will be added on the PC version down the line.

    Controller support is coming to Wolcen in six month times apparently, no doubt to coincide with the game's release on the PS4 and Xbox One. Must admit that a controller would be my preferred way to play an action RPG, especially as the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Diablo III were much more enjoyable to play with direct control of your character (yes, I played both versions right through several level 70+ characters as it was that addictive!).

    For some reason, the mouse controls in Wolcen are a bit 'wonky', for want of a better word. Sometimes, clicking on a loot name to pick it up does not register, requiring finicky character positioning to work, and on numerous occasions I have had problems targetting the bat-like creatures, usually just the last couple but it was a constant annoyance. Also, the nature of moving and targetting enemies with a mouse click means that you can end up moving where you didn't want to. Controller support would definitely help alleviate that as it certainly did in Diablo III. With the dodge ability mapped to the right analogue stick, controller support made that game more enjoyable on console than it was on PC in my opinion. It just feels like a more natural fit to have direct control of a character instead of directing them with a mouse click.

    this is for me the next Diablo. the action oriented combat is really well made, the graphics, art and design
    looks top notch..

    i didn't play it more than 40 mins on release since i had issues with the servers but om gonna play offline
    for a while now.

    items means the most in those type of games the way i see it, so if its done correctly.. this has
    insane potential for the upcoming years.

    Exactly. I played D3 on PC and Xbox and I can definitively say the xbox version felt better. The ability to roll along with the analog stick just made me feel more in control of the character.

    Same with Grim Dawn, works well with controller.

    Ok so for the most part the online issues are now solved, just played 3hrs in coop and this game is frigging DECENT!

    SOOOO many customization options for your character, gameplay is fluid enough albeit maybe not quite up to blizzard standards but close enough, quests and side quests are great, graphics are great bearing the genre in mind... I gotta say this game scratches that arpg itch in a really good way and any arpg fan should get it, just bear in mind you may have to put up with some bugs at present but nothing that wont get ironed out in a patch or 2. First game in a while that I properly look forward to playing.

    Diablo on switch is peak diablo for me, I love the controller gameplay and the portability is amazing.

    Blizzard standars? You mean the company that was known for making good games a couple years ago?

    Edit: And again, game is not playable online. First hotfixes on servers and now..

    Love how no one these days can give a aprox ETA, like 1 hour or 5 hours...! I also have a different understanding when using maintenance at servers. At discord they said, they shut the servers down to fix inventory stash and progression lost bug. So thats no maintenance for me....those different communication channels also suck big time these days (you have to gather official information from social meda channels and not official forums or release platforms anymore).

    Edit: So, this server maintenance will be finished at 5 PM UTC...lol. :D

    There is no MP grind and the game is not different in SP or MP, except coop!

    Servers are still down because they extended the maintenance, again!

    Edit: And postpoed again, another 16 hours where servers will be offline!

    The very same. Although Blizzard's going downhill at the moment, their games in the past were always super responsive and polished when it came to basic gameplay. Wolcen appears to have like a half a second delay for every action and some of the skills are a bit clunky to use but for me not to a point that it would be a dealbreaker.

    Just a shame we're stuck playing Wolcen: Lords of Maintenance at the moment but I'm much more patient these days and I hope the game comes out of it in a decent state.

    This game is Kickstarted, so how can you compare it to the fu*king Blizzard, one of the biggest studios in the world!?

    And we are stuck?? Who is stuck? Who are we? Are you the chosen one who speaks for everyone?
    Btw, you don't need to play it right now. You can wait until it's fixed. It's a choice.

    Hmm, looks like I'll wait for next weekend. They should at least be done with the maintenance by then.

    Wow... who pissed in your cornflakes this morning to cause you to get so confrontational?

    I like the game and I'm actually defending it but it doesn't mean I can't be critical about it too. Also by "we" I mean those of us intending to play the game in online mode because some of us may wish to play it in co-op for the first playthrough.

    Btw, I'm fully aware I don't have to play the game right now and I am choosing to wait until its fixed.

    Have a good day sir.

    Terrible game. I've never seen a game as buggy as this. UI is awful, animations are stiff, servers are f*cked (but that's to be expected). Lot of people had to replay large parts of the game because the servers took a crap and lost progress.

    End game is non existent atm. This is an alpha at best.

    Sigh, yip, noticed the reviews on Steam went from "very positive" to "mixed" -most reviews mentioning similar things ... oh well.
