Review: Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition

Diablo 3:Reaper of Souls has finally been released for current and last gen consoles. This iteration of the least favored addition to the Diablo series is something of a godsend for the series. As some of you may know, when Diablo 3 first came out in 2012, it was almost universally panned as the worst Diablo game in the series for its simplified gameplay, terrible story, and general disregard for what made its predecessors so compelling. But, like any Diablo fan, I picked up D3 on PC and got burned to the point that I couldn’t bring myself to play the game for a year.

Then, Diablo 3 came to consoles, and I decided to give it a shot and I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable the experience was, terrible story notwithstanding. At the time, I declared that the console version of Diablo 3 was the best version, and I still stand by that assessment of the original Diablo 3. Since then, however, the PC version received multiple updates and has righted almost every wrong it committed upon its initial release. And with the release of Reaper of Souls, Diablo 3 has transformed into an entirely different game.

With that being said, let’s take a look at Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition. Read On

Feature: Let’s talk about Hideo Kojima’s P.T.

During Gamescom 2014, Sony revealed a trailer for a new game that was so scary you might involuntarily evacuate your bowels. Of course I thought “this can’t possibly be true, this is all just a part of the hype machine. Right? Right?!” Wrong. P.T. is possibly one of the scariest console games I’ve ever had the misfortune of playing. And here’s the thing about it, it’s not even a full game. It’s literally just a “Playable Teaser”, hence the name “P.T.”, for a game that is developed by 7780s Studio and may or may not play like the teaser. Of course, if you choose to read on, I will spoil what the game actually is and try to walk you through it. So if you want to play it, you can pick up P.T. for free on the PlayStation Network store.
