Leauge of Legends

Leauge of Legends, a top down 2.5d Isometric MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena) MMO game, with hundreds of champions to choose from, the game can be interesting to play. Initially I'd like to warn you that this game can be very anger inducing so beware. Honestly while the idea of the game is fun, the way riot has handled the game has been poor. Riot Games seems to be more interested in pumping out champions than actually improving the game. Out for almost 5 years, Leauge of Legends has became the number one MOBA game to date internationally. But issues with servers, more interest in profit than improving it, the game has been the ticking time bomb Riot can only seems to make the fuse longer too. Horrid matchmaking, unbalanced champions and a horrible community are what ruins this game. That all being said, the game is still enjoyable to me, atleast personnally as a good "once in a while" game. Once I was very addicted to Leauge, but now i'm playing more casually and it's done wonders for my blood pressure.

Diablo 3/Reaper of souls

When Diablo 3 originally came out. I really enjoyed the game just on it's own. But after awhile I started to feel like what I was doing was pointless. Just doing the same thing over and over to get better. And while the original game was fun, the new Reaper of Souls expansion really is the icing on the cake. Quite a few things have changed since the expansion. The difficulty modes, Normal, Nightmate, Hell, and Inferno. No longer exist. Now the difficulties follow a much more efficient and better thought out system. Essentially the difficulties are the same there are just more of them, allowing you to cater the difficulty to the gear your character has and it's level. Another BIG change is the auction house. While in the vanilla game, the auction house was near crucial to leveling and getting good gear, it also made it easy to "buy the game" so to speak. Which arose alot of "Is it pay to win?" Questions being asked. Which is what I believe to of been the driving reason for the change in ROS. The last crucial change is that, since the auction house is gone, getting good gear is more possible with the system Blizzard is calling Loot 2.0 which fundamentally keeps the loot the same just with higher chances for better gear. Which really improves the game.
