Diablo III

Diablo III will have offline cooperative play for PS3 & 4

Well, crap

Diablo III requiring an always-online connection for PC is one of the worst design decisions in recent memory. Well, any single-player game that requires an always-online connection is asinine, really. It looks like that poor decision will not carry over into the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of the game -- at least not in local multiplayer.

In an interview with GameTrailers, Sony's John Hight said "You can have four people on the same screen. No split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or, you know, if you're offline..." 

So there it is. It is unclear if the single-player game can be played offline since Mr. Hight was speaking specifically about multiplayer in this instance, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was. Congratulations, future PS3 and PS4 owners, you officially have a better version of the game.

When I said "I'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding," I meant that I would force anyone under interrogation to play Big Rigs for extended periods. That'll be sure to break them.

I'm actually pretty bummed out about Game Trailers closing up shop. I hadn't visited in years but I still remember the good old days of having to wait for low-res versions of AVGN episodes to load. You'll be missed, all.

Twitter should hire these lovely ladies. They seem extremely impartial and even handed in their views.

My response to new Sonc games is always lukewarm. I'm making progress because ever since Shadow the Hedgehog, my reactions tended to be pretty bitter. Never understood why anyone gets hyped though, they never live up to the marketing. Like ever.

Whenever I think of Larx. Quite thrilling.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie coming in 2018... hopefully it's one of those "so bad it's good" movies at least. http://mynintendonews.com/2016/02/10/sonic-the-hedgehog-movie-confirmed-for-2018/

The internet is so good, gives people without any power in real life a sense of purpose. Such as the Dtoid mod arbitrarily deleting my comments because I dislike the shit they like. "This will show him who's boss here", lol, impotent nerd.
