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.

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.

Its finally here, the expansion to the stupidly addictive clickiness that Blizzard gave to us nearly two years ago!  I won't ignore the fact that some of you likely had your issues with the game, whether it be of the error 37 kind or just simply a hatred for something it did or didn't do to meet your expectations.  You may be wondering why in hell you should now consider paying the price of a full game for an expansion. The simple answer is this: Reaper of Souls takes what you hated about Diablo III, fixes them, then throws in a whole lot of extra content to keep you busy for many, many hours.

Everyone who knows me knows how much I dig cosplay, especially when I dress up like Bane in order to talk to the Mormons who go door to door every week in my neighbourhood. There’s a lot of great cosplay out there. And then there is truly magnificent works of art that walk past you. There’s only way to describe this particular example: Demonic.

Gah, collector’s editions! Back, back I say! I’ve not got the money for you, nor shall I spend it even if I did! What’s that you say? This Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls collector’s edition has a nice-looking art book and DAMMIT STOP TEMPTING SATAN!

If there was one game that convinced me to get a Playstation 4, it had to be Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. Jamming the game with fellow writers and getting my couch co-op on was just too much fun. And yes, I did click around on PC as well. Blizzard’s Andrew Chambers, John Hight and Matthew Berger had plenty to say about the game. So stay awhile and listen.

It’s hard to believe, but Grand Theft Auto is a teenager now. What was once a bouncing little top-down sandbox game on our Pentium II knee has become a full-fledged adult that is more than willing to reenact Gouranga on our asses when it gets the keys to the car. Here’s a brief history lesson on that trouble-making franchise.

I may not be a fan of Dragon Age, but I can sure as hell appreciate some fiiiiiiine art when I see it. The weekend saw some new tidibits of info and videographics for the upcoming game roll out. As well as this great concept art from Bioware’s Matt Rhodes that was shown at PAX. Feast your peepers on it after the jump.

People may have had one or two things to say about Diablo III last year COUGH “Error 37” COUGH, but you’ve got to give Blizzard credit for creating a game that still has people playing. Or will at least draw more folks back, as Diablo III is getting an expansion pack.

If there was one component of Diablo 3, one factor that really drove fans Barbarian mad, it had to be that the game required a constant internet connection in order to be played. A connection that inevitably had some issues with lag and consistency. Sure, it had some benefits in the form of co-operative play, but sometimes, people just want to be alone when they slay their way through Sanctuary. The game is now on the way to PlayStation platforms, and it looks like it may be going offline for those gamers.

Brace yourselves, because today is unofficially Playstation 4 day. We finally got official confirmation on the console last night, sans any imagery of the device itself, as well as a whole heap of next-gen games that will be debuting on the device. One current-gen game that is arriving on the Playstation 3 and 4 consoles though? Why, it’s good ol’ El Diablo 3.

So you’ve put your fingers through several shaolin temples of training in order to hone the Iron digit skills you’ll need. You’ve got a comfy chair, a high resolution monitor, online access and buns of steel.

It’s time to play some Diablo 3! But before you get the game, you have to buy it first, and if you aren’t expecting a friendly FedEx courier to show up on launch day, that means venturing outside to go procure yourself a copy.

But where can you find your treasured game, come Monday on a brisk May 14 night?
