Seven years. In video game terms, that’s a lifespan that is equivalent to a sneaky fart in an elevator. And yet in such a short amount of time, Ubisoft has managed to create one of the biggest franchises on the planet. Games, books, comics, action figures and more have been born out of Assassin’s Creed. And over the years, it has evolved into something magnificent.

Way back in the early 2000s, Bungie created something special with Halo. Originally meant for Apple computers,  Bungie instead chose to flip off that egomaniac Steve Jobs and rather iPort their game over to Microsoft and their newborn Xbox division. And the rest as they say, was history. Totally bitchin’ history that is! Here’s a new trailer to celebrate the legacy of Halo, which is arriving soon in a remastered tetralogy package.

Battlefield 5? Yawn, give me a sequel to Battlefield Bad Company 2 instead! This year’s big announcement from EA was for Battlefield: Hardline, a game that so far only Gavin and myself are actually keen on playing. But we’re both in agreement that a new Bad Company game is needed right now. And DICE is also aware of that fan demand. They just can’t figure out why though.

Is it possible to have too many Lego games, you ask? Hahahaha, you silly people with your legs before wickets and your being born in a hospital, of course you can never have enough Batman in your life. As the chief Batmanologist for Lazygamer, I recommend a daily regimen of at least an hour a day of playing a Batman game. And you might want to try out our new Lego Batman 3 game later this year.

If there’s one thing that the previous generation of gaming was known for, it was milking the hell out of the games that came before it, stretching some classic gems into a 16:9 aspect ration and repackaging them as collections. This generation is no different, with a definitive edition of Tomb Raider ramping up the visuals. And the entire Halo collection might get the same treatment soon.

We get a lot of freedom in games these days. But we kind of take it for granted now, especially in the name game. Most games these days that offer open worlds want you to give your avatar a unique handle, something that Mass Effect encourages. And according to Bioware, these were the most popular names in their previous game in that series.

I’ve got a lot of love for the two Darksiders games from Vigil games. Pinching the best parts of other games and wrapping them in a completely unique look based on designs from comic book legend Joe Madureira resulted in a fantastic hybrid of style and substance. Pity the franchise is dead. Or is it?

You’ve been wondering just when Blizzard would release Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition onto consoles. Well wonder no more, as it’ll be out on August 19 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It’s Diablo 3, and the Reaper of Souls together for the first time, and it feels oh so good. Prepare to go back to hell Nephalem scum.

What’s old is new again. Out of all the Final Fantasies, Final Fantasy III is most likely the one game that I’m least qualified to talk about, having never played it. Still, provided that I can ignore that dusty emulator folder on my PC, I’ll be getting a chance to do so when the game hits Steam later this year.

May is a month wherein some big events occurred on our planet. World War 2 finally ended on May 8 back in 1945 with an Allied victory, May 25 is Towel Day for the fans of 42 and yours truly was born in this month once several catastrophic prophesies came to pass. And now, it’s also a good month for free games.

I’ve just recently started playing Diablo 3, on console. And I’m freakin’ loving it. It’s a great game, and beautifully balanced and it has me excited for the console release of Reaper of Souls. PC gamers already have that experience. And they’re also getting a new patch to rebalance the game.

I’m pretty late to the Diablo 3 party. I only just picked up the game for Xbox 360, but I have to admit, I’m having a blast playing as monk with fists of iron. As usual, I am way beyond fashionably late, as the expansion is out for PC. And it has sold plenty so far.
