Diablo III

Release Date: May 15

Systems: PC, MAC

Did you know it has been 11 years since the release of Diablo II? Well, Blizzard, it took a while… but you finally made it. Along with a standard release, there is a special edition available, along with Diablo III themed products like a gaming mouse, mouse pads featuring the character types, and headphones. The single player and multiplayer options are still available, now with an online auction system.

Diablo III is a fantasy Action Role-Playing Game (RPG). Only the third major release in what is considered by many gamers as the most iconic RPG franchise of all time, Diablo 3 continues the land of Sanctuary’s battle against a reoccurring demonic evil, and provides players around the world with the opportunity to create the ultimate hero to quest against it with friends online, or on their own. Features include: classic dungeon crawling gameplay, a new batch of character classes, multiplayer options with friends and single player support with the help of AI companions, a new take on character skill assignment and health, online item auctioning, and compatibility with Windows and Mac operating systems.


Max Payne 3

Release Date: May 15

Systems: PC, X360, PS3

Now based in Brazil, after the vents of Max Payne 2, Max is a little older but just as deadly and full of angst. Here’s a helpful tip to anyone not familiar with the series: just play the games, don’t watch the movie. Do not ever watch the movie.

Max Payne 3 is the third release in the popular Third-Person Shooter series of the same name, and the first iteration of the series to appear on Next Gen gaming consoles. Developed by Rockstar Games, the creative minds behind the cutting edge GTA, Red Dead and Midnight Club game franchises, Max Payne 3 is a sequel to the second game in the series, and features an older Max Payne with a new life and job abroad. But as dangerous situations spiral Max’s life from bad, to worse, it seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Game features include: series first multiplayer functionality, a wealth of weapons, classic Max Payne Bullet Time and Shoot dodge functionality, extreme realism and special bonus features.


Game of Thrones

Release Date: May 15

Systems: PC, X360, PS3

Game of Thrones is an RPG based in Westeros that isn’t copied exactly from the book series; however, George R. R. Martin did supervise the original story used for this game. Play as one of two original characters. The decisions you make will change the Seven Kingdoms, for better or worse depending on who you and your alliances are. It features 30+ hours of game play, slow time during battles, and frankly, it’s in Westeros! As a GoT fan, any addition Martin’s amazing fantasy world is welcome.

Just don’t mess with the dragons. And the lady in red up there? If she belongs to the organization I think she does, stay away from her too. (Also, the show is amazing and the books are even better.)


Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode II

Release Date: May 16

Systems: X360, iPhone, WinPhone, PC, PS3, Android

Episode II, it feels like I’ve been waiting for you forever. Episode 1 feels like it came out ages ago, but that’s okay. Another addition to the very shiny Sonic 4, available on just about every system that you can play a game on. Tails is here, along with some new environments that really remind me of Sonic 3.



Release Date: May 15

Systems: X360, Nintendo DS, PS3, 3DS, Wii

Dear Everyone of the World,

This is a game based on the 2012 movie, Battleship, where the ships the humans are battling are from space, and their armor is a lot cooler looking than that of the humans. From the screenshots found, there are a few “classic Battleship images,” like an actual ship grid… but let’s face it. The real game of Battleship is from Milton Bradley, and there’s a Star Wars version floating around somewhere in existence with my name on it.
