Games and other fun stuff

My review of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is up.

If Breaking Bad has taught me anything, it is that pure, refined addiction comes in many forms. Like regular meth,Diablo III had a pretty strong hook with some serious side effects. Being able to buy items from the auction house took a lot of fun out of doing runs at the end because there was always the option to simply buy what you wanted. With the auction house existing, the idea of replaying the end game over and over again was diminished because items could be fairly readily acquired (as long as you were willing to pay the ridiculous prices). I’m pretty sure Heisenberg was hired by Blizzard, because the typical addictive hook that Diablo III provided has been taken off the streets and replaced with pure blue crystal meth in the form of the expansion, Reaper of Souls.”
