IMG Reviews Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games' Ted Bade has posted a new review of Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. The new expansion offers a new hero: The Crusader, a new level 70 experience cap, new spells and abilities for existing classes, greater emphasis on randomized environments, a reworked Paragon progression, as well as two new game modes: Loot Runs and Nephalem Trials.

Here's an excerpt:

Along with this the new expansion they added one new character type called the crusader. Crusaders are your typical Paladin type, what I would call a warrior with a cause. He has been trained to fight with sword and shield. He is so experienced with this method that one special ability is to be able to wield a two-handed weapon one handed with a shield! Nice for DPS! The Crusader has a number of special attacks, some of which give him the ability to hit creatures which are not in melee range. My favorite is a shied toss that sends the Crusader’s shield spinning into a group of creatures, damaging them all both on the way out and way back as the shield returns to the Crusader. He also has some abilities that make him a good party member, such as buffs which affect him and any other member of his party.

1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War. Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee's forces. On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah.

Deconstructeam and Devolver Digital have announced July 24 as the release date for Gods Will Be Watching. Available for Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, the "minimalistic point and click thriller" will challenge players to solve narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas in a story involving an intense interstellar conflict.

Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic "point and click thriller" centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas that will affect both the lives of your team and the people you’re are sworn to protect. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide. There's no good or evil, just decisions, with only you and the gods as a judge to your actions.

An innovative departure from the traditional point and click adventure taking place in six intimate, tension-filled scenarios linked together through an epic narrative of interstellar espionage.

Set morals aside as you navigate Sgt. Burden and his team through harrowing predicaments and make decisions that will either save your team or sacrifice their lives for the sake of the mission.

Solve a wide variety of narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas using your own wits and burden the consequences of your choices. Do you intimidate or comfort your hostages to maintain your tenuous control of the situation? Should you kill the weakest member of your party to save on food for the strong? What is one life worth in the face of annihilation?

Receive your judgment from the gods upon failure and compare your choices to all other players in the universe over time.

Over 1,500 beautifully designed sprites tell your story against 15 stunning backgrounds and an emotionally stirring orchestral soundtrack.
