Review: Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4)


“Because I could not stop for death, he kindly stopped for me.”

The first line from a lyrical poem written by Emily Dickinson may sum up the final battle from the recently released Reaper of Souls expansion, far more elegantly and with outstanding accuracy, given that it was first published in 1890.

In truth, Diablo III’s journey has been a rocky one, from a community dividing beginning through its auction house phase and its transition from PC to console, with much of its gameplay and several innovations made specifically for console that serve to make the game even more accessible.

Finally having made the jump to next generation consoles, Diablo III is at its best when you and a few online friends are smashing through large hordes of endless foes, each slain enemy potent...

Dragon Age: Inquisition character creation

Bioware has put out a new video showing off the character creation tool for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Check it out below.

The character customization looks to be pretty extensive. Bringing the races back from Dragon Age: Origins is looking to be a good idea, offering more unique playthroughs. And it will be nice to play as a Qunari. Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 18 for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Confessions of a Journey With the Dying and the Dead

At first, all I was going to do was tell of my time playing Dark Souls 2 but then, out of nowhere, I went to play the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. There’ll be more on that later, but first: my time with Dark Souls 2. First of all, let me say that I am easily persuaded by others to jump on the hype train. Sometimes this is worth following, sometimes not. But in this case, I found the journey to be worth the time, so off I went to Drangleic, the world of Dark Souls 2, despite the fact that some hardcore players of the Souls series say that Dark Souls 2 is the easiest among the trio. Without having played either 2452864-thepursuerDemon’s Souls or Dark Souls, I am in no position to say otherwise. The main reasons I am attracted to such games is the lore and how the story is told...

What Destiny needs to do

Destiny has been out for twenty days now. Guardians have engaged in millions of activities around the world and have expended even more bullets. Sales have made it the fastest selling new IP in video game history. And many have already logged close to 100 hours into Bungie’s online shooter. For the most part, things have been smooth sailing, at least on the technical side of things. Bungie’s servers have held up remarkably well for the most part during the launch, but now three weeks in issues are beginning to emerge. Server issues aren’t the only problem to surface. Most reviews (including our own) have labeled Destiny as a very fun shooter with addictive, albeit repetitive, gameplay...

Review: Theatrhythm – Final Fantasy (3DS)


An enchanting musical journey carried on the sepia toned wings of nostalgia.

With the recent release of the 3DS game, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, we thought in anticipation of our review, it might be nice to revisit the game that started one of Square’s newest and most refreshing series.

Do you remember your first Final Fantasy?  Perhaps you journeyed alongside the Warriors of Light as they quested to defeat Garland.  You could have shared travels with Cecil and Kain.  You might have saved Terra and her friends from the maniacal Kefka.  Mayhaps you helped a certain spiky haired youth wield his large sword against numerous foes.  You may have crossed paths with oddly named adventurers called Squall, or Rinoa, or Zindane, maybe Yuna or Tidus, or Vaan...

Microsoft sets date for Chinese Xbox One release

Monday’s delays push launch back by a week

Microsoft’s has rescheduled its launch date for Xbox One in China, issuing a revised date of September 29th.

The machine was initially due to launch Monday, but Microsoft was forced to delay the event by unspecified circumstances.

A statement from Xbox China GM Enwei Xie, released today and reported by Kotaku, has now pinned that delay on the Chinese government – historically not always the easiest bureaucracy to deal with.

“After receiving government approval for the first wave of games, we will launch with the first ten games now and continue our work to bring more blockbuster games and a broad offering of entertainment and app experiences to the platform in the weeks and months to come,” said Xie...
