• Diablo 3 – Reaper Of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition Xbox 360 review and giveaway [gaming]
    Posted by on Aug 29th, 2014

    Right it’s Friday and you dungeon crawlers and loot junkies can rejoice because i’m giving away a copy of Diablo III – Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition. It’s essentially the full Diablo III game with the Reaper of Souls expansion added on. I’ve already reviewed Diablo 3 and if you don’t know what the drill is then here’s a copy/paste.

    “The low down: Diablo III is an action role-playing game, and a true continuation of the Diablo series. You choose between a male or female from five distinct classes — barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, demon hunter or crusader — each equipped with an array of different spells and abilities. You adventure through rich and varied settings and engage in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses in a bid to defeat main evil bad guy Diablo. Along the way your hero will grow in experience and ability and acquire rare items of incredible power.”

    The added expansion Reaper of Souls, takes place after you’ve killed main bad guy Diablo and pits you against Malthael…a fallen angel who really doesn’t dig humans so he raises and army of ugly ass looking reapers to eliminate us from existence. That’s where you come in and hack, slash and magic your way through cemetaries, swamps ruins and what not. The newly added Crusader class offers so new options that i’ll explain later.

    That’s Malthael on the cover there…not a pleasant chap.

    You can go read my Diablo 3 review HERE in terms of presentation, graphics, gameplay etc since none of that has really changed much…its still top notch. The expansion Reaper of Souls includes another act (or mission) where you take on Malthael plus his minions and environments have changed slightly, but the theme is the same. They have also added the Crusader class, a close combat mid-range knight who soaks up damage with his shield and lays waste to large numbers of enemies with his area of effect abilities. They have also added a new adventure mode where they do away with story line and you basically go on monster killing quests.

    Have a look at the gameplay trailer to get a better idea of what to expect.

    Kick ass and take names.

    • Right so i’m gonna give an Xbox 360 copy away to someone who leaves a comment beneath this post.

    Yes…the #PoloTag contest is over and the powers that be have chosen a winner who gets to drive the brand new Volkswagen Polo for a year. If you’ve been following then you will know that a few weeks back the ultimate test drive contest kicked off in Cape Town and i got to be a part of the very first people who got behind the wheel to see how long i could stay in the car for. If you spotted me in the car you had to tweet #polotag, be selected and make it to the car in a certain time and then replace me as the driver. I didn’t last very long (9 minutes to be exact) before someone replaced me. The top 10 people who stayed in the VW Polo the longest went into a draw and the winner was chosen after similar events were held in Durban and Johannesburg. Unfortunately someone from Cape Town didn’t win, but hey we had the most folks in the top 10…well done team.

    Winner was chosen as Calvin van der Walt. Well done Calvin…this puppy is yours.

    And here’s a highlight video of the #PoloTag experience in South Africa.

    Well done to all those involved. Wish i could give you all the new VW Polo.
