Impressions: Diablo III (PS3, Xbox 360)

The thought of the Diablo franchise coming to consoles yet again was something I found hard to believe. I had a front-row seat to the launch of the original Diablo on the PlayStation, and to say it was a letdown is an understatement.

But after I had gotten in some quality time with Diablo III, I actually had faith that the pared-down mechanics could actually work outside of the PC platform -- the question is, would I actually play it all over again on a controller. In fact, when it came time to actually sit down and play the console game last week, I thought I had enough of Diablo III with a few hundred hours poured into the original PC release.

Before I knew it though, I had nearly beaten the game twice over on consoles in a single afternoon.

The Big Blue: From the creators of Ecco the Dolphin

I keep telling myself that the next time I see a Kickstarter from a team that developed a much-loved classic from my youth, I'll try to contain my excitement. After all, my youth was quite a while ago. This is a promise that ...

Diablo III is running on consoles, but still not official

I was always skeptical of the Diablo III console news. Something in me always knew that given Blizzard's history with consoles, it would take a long, long time for a Diablo III console project to see the light of day -- if ev...

Review: Astro A50 photo
Review: Astro A50
by Daniel Starkey

It doesn't take much to really improve the gaming experience. Better seating, better lighting, better company, etc. are sometimes all it takes to go from an utterly insufferable trek through your simulated world of choice to a magical journey that will keep you coming back for hours on end.

Upgrading your audio setup is often one of the best ways to squeeze every bit of rich detail from a game. Better speakers can kindle a warmer affinity for the creaking, tired breaths of Rapture or give that extra edge over the competition. Astro claims that its new line of wireless gaming headsets can not only keep up with their wired cousins, but that can raise the standard for gaming audio quality.

From what I've heard, they are absolutely right.

E3: Insomniac's Overstrike trailer can have my babies

I'm not the guy who squirms in his chair while watching trailers. I was a pretty cynical and jaded guy before I became professionally consumed by videogames and time has not been kind to my level of enthusiasm. Every once in...

Hands-on: Wildlife: Forest Survival photo
Hands-on: Wildlife: Forest Survival
by Ben Perlee

Wildlife: Forest Survival is one of the weirdest class-based versus games I have ever played. Different from the upcoming Tokyo Jungle, Wildlife: Forest Survival only has four animals, and is an arena based game that's in cute forest environments. It's all rather odd, and it is certainly like nothing else on the market. Follow for more.

A look at gaming's many revolutions

Patriotism may not be my favorite thing ever, but I do love a good revolution. That's a big part of why I love the videogame industry. In television, movies and music, truly revolutionary moments are few and far between. In v...
