Diablo III and other thingsThese past few days, I have been looking for jobs and playing a LOT of Diablo III. If you are unfamiliar with the Diablo franchise, let me sum it up fairly briefly: It is a hack-and-slash action role-playing video game, developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. The aim of the game is to kill Diablo, the Prime Evil. In order to do that, you need to complete Four acts of quests. In Diablo III, they range from killing a certain amount of demons to locating major things, such as a soul stone, a head or something entirely different.
Before you start, you pick a class. I am playing as a Necromancer, but I have completed the game with a Wizard, which is a great class to play. I am on my second play-through at the moment, and I am almost finished with the game. My next character is gonna be a Crusader, which I am very excited to play. I might also bump up the difficulty for this one, since I really need a challenge. At the moment, I think it's too easy to level up and kill Diablo.
Naturally, with a game where the title is 'Diablo', there are some people, who are against it, or people who are doubting, whether you can play the game and still be a Christian. I found a website, where Christians are discussing the game. It is actually quite interesting to read, what they think of the game. If you are interested in reading that conversation, click this link here:
Full disclosure: I was baptized in the Christian faith, but I am not a practicing Christian. I am open to it, however. It all depends on when the time is right and all that good stuff. I attend church sometimes, but it's mostly when there are weddings, baptisms or funerals.
Quick side note: If you go to my previous blog, and look at the comment section, you're probably thinking "Wait a minute, you turned comments off", and the answer to that is yes. Yes I have. Your next question is probably "But why did you do that?". I did it, because I felt that what needed to be said, had been said. Also, it looked like it could escalate at any minute, which is exactly what I feared would happen. That is the reason, why I don't post political stuff. No more of those blogs..
Anyway.. Back to the video games.. Diablo III is a fantastic game, that delivers hours and hours of fun! There are 7 (yes, seven) classes, each with their own unique play-style. So many ways to build your perfect character. It could be a mix of summoning skeletons and bone spikes, to fire and ice. The main story line is short, finished in just 10 hours. But, after that you can go into Adventure Mode, and really rake up the play time! Some say it's endless, which I kind of agree on. So, if you have a PS4, Xbox One or a PC, give this game a look. I promise you will have a BOATLOAD of fun!
