Game Pick of the Week #6: Diablo III

Today, Diablo III was released in NA, EU, and SA. Diablo III is a fantasy apocalyptic role playing game by Blizzard Entertainment. Blizzard was also the creator of very popular games like Warcraft, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft. All of these games have made it to an international scale as well as created sequels(expansions). It is mostly a hack and slash game, combined with dungeon crawling. Hack and slash games are games where you run around and kill multiple enemies. Dungeon Crawling is when your character navigates in a labyrinthine environment.

When you first start the game, you will get to chose what your character looks like, gender, and what class. There are five classes: Barbarian, Witch Doctor, Demon Hunter, Monk, and Wizard. The Barbarian is a warrior that relies on melee combat. The Witch Doctor is like a necromancer, who summons dead spirits and creatures to do as they command. The Demon Hunter is a ranged character that also relies on shadow magic and traps. The Monk is a spiritual warrior that relies on fast combos to defeat foes. The Wizard is a spell caster that excels in magic, especially elemental powers.

Of course, with any RPG each class has different passive skills and active skills. Passive skills are ones that you have without doing anything. Active skills are skills that you have to activate. You can make them easier to cast by binding skills to 1,2,3,4, right mouse button, and left mouse button. There are also skill runes that can further enhance your active skills.

In the game, you will be again fighting monsters from Hell. The Prime Evils: Diablo: Lord of Terror, Baal: Lord of Destruction, and Mephisto: Lord of Hatred were already banished from the World of Sanctuary. This time you will be fighting the last two demonic lords, the Lesser Evils: Azmodan: Lord of Sin, and Belliel: Lord of Lies. You will play a breave adventurer who will journey to the town of Tristram, where you meet Leah and her uncle Deckard Cain. A recent comet has crashed into the town. Was it the sign that the End has come? Once again I am very excited that Diablo III has been released and hope any of you that have bought it have fun playing it.
