*Knock Knock* ‘Who’s There?’ ‘Why it’s Satan…Again’. That’s right Diablo is back, again, but this time for consoles, again. Jonas takes a look at the Xbox 360 port of Diablo 3. Does it stand up next to the PC release or should it be in one of Hell’s nine circles?

With rumours flying around, aided by Amazon Germany and Italy posting listings, it seems that Mirror’s Edge 2 may be set for an E3 2013 reveal. With that in mind Ruaidhri has produced a list of what are essentials to make this sequel as great as the first game.
Sony made many mistakes at the outset of this generation, but to bury its contributions during the last seven years under the weight of “$599 US DOLLARS” would be a tremendous waste. From the unprecedented value offered by Playstation Plus to the company’s courting of indie development, Sony has done a 180 since 2006, setting numerous examples their competitors should follow. As we eagerly anticipate the Playstation 4, let’s look at the little and not so little things Sony did right during the Playstation 3’s lifespan.
“Some idiot is running around the asylum, dressed like a bat…! I know! Crazy!” While the Joker’s words could be viewed as – and admittedly are, if you’re sad like me – funny, there is something unsettling about them. 2009’s Arkham Asylum is, at the very least, one of my favourite games of recent times. Everything it excels at is there in a neat package: graphics, storyline, script, gameplay, voice acting – but there is something else that makes it so masterful. It’s a head fuck.
Formula One is something that I’ve never had an interest in. The loud noise and repetitive nature always perplexed and bore me rather than rattle my core and send me into a screaming frenzy. The sight of cars that can go so fast in such a small amount of time being forced to screech to a halt to get round a corner is more of a confusion than titillating. And the process of the drivers doing 70 odd laps was mind numbingly dull. It should be said now that no sport has ever entertained me, I’ve tried with football, I tried rugby and I even tried snooker but each I felt was too long. Being the walking hypocrite and contraction I am I did for a very short time find golf fascinating, not because of the skill or excitement, but because the quiet sound of some birds tweeting, the occasional golf swing and the bright green colours would send me into some sort of serene fugue state.
It is said there are only a few certainties in life; taxes and death. Well by proxy of death there is another, getting old. At age 25 I feel like I was born in a perfect time to enjoying gaming, systems were out and gaming staples were in place by the time I was able to comprehend what a console was and how to use a controller. Technology and genre’s are unlikely to vastly jump from the categories we have now; fighters, platformers, FPS’s are all going to advance but the basic premise is still there.
Zombies are awesome. I’ve written two reviews of games on this site which feature them, and I’ve even written an article on why we need more zombies in gaming. As such you would assume that a game like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City would be a zombie apocalypse wet dream for me, and thankfully it is.
