How big is Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls compared to the base game?

What exactly do you mean? Content? Storage on your harddrive? If you are refering to content, there is a new act, which by far is the best one (imo). I actually think it is the longest one too. Additionally, there is adventure mode afterwards, which allows you to play any part of any act in whichever order you prefer. Here, you can go for bounties (kill xxx monsters, defend this guys etc), and eventually go for rifts, which is "kill-a-lot-of-monsters-and-a-boss"-runs. I've easily spent 100 hours + after RoS, so I'd recommend it. Also, Crusader rocks!

Its much much better compared to the base game it actually feels like a real diablo.The patch they dropped right before the expansion came out fixed alot of stuff.

The story is terrible with cheap shots here and there to make sure diablo continues. It is longer than any of the previous acts, the crusader plays differently from the other classes and the adventure and bounties adds the biggest portion of your time that you will spend in the game.

@alpaca, content wise.. of course. :) Even if its a good act, 40,- on a 60,- game seems a bit much for that amount of content. I'd consider it to be more of a 20,- deal.

I'm just kidding :) so much talk these day about how much space games take up. I got my RoS for €20 on, and haven't regretted it.

No, buying the game a week later is still buying the game. If they get our money, they'll keep screwing us0%
I think it can help with broken games and questionable pre-release reviews but not the larger industry problems we face0%

The Axe Factor 181: A Fat Guy Named No Man's Sky

Rubber bullets cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we lose our minds over the latest media from Batman: Arkham Knight, discuss one listener's suggestion that we renounce pre-orders to combat broken games, and go hands-on with Far Cry 4, GTA V, and more!

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

Grapple-parachute-traversal cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we're checking in on Tales From the Borderlands, digging on some Just Cause 3 and pondering our experiences as a customer of the game industry.

What We’re Watching:…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.


The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
