Brandon Koch, GIZORAMA - "Blizzard’s Diablo 3 has been a bit troubled until recently. The auction house and design choices in loot drops, difficulty, and its paragon system led to a game that people quickly dropped after a couple playthroughs unlike its predecessor Diablo 2. A recent patch to the core game prior to the release of Reaper of Souls fixed a majority of these issues by introducing Loot 2.0, a new Paragon system, the closure of the auction house, and a revamp of the difficulties. Reaper of Souls builds on the 2.0.1 patch and makes Diablo 3 the game fans always wanted.
Westmarch and all of Sanctuary is in dire need of a hero in the new Act V. Malthael, a former Angel of Wisdom, has gone a bit nuttso and became the embodiment of death, which is a Grim Reaper-esque character, a.k.a. the Angel of Death. Malthael wants to rid the realm of all demonic essence. Unfortunately, the humans are part angelic and part demonic, so that means death for all."
