A couple of good games this week at the cost of a store. Unfortunately our local Blockbuster video (which was privately owned) has finally closed it’s doors, the last day of sales being Saturday. Everything was on sale, movies, games, fixtures, and even the front desk. Wanting to help and also wanting to snag some games, I went in a bought a few titles this week.

Review: Legend of Grimrock

As generations of videogame consoles come and go we see vast improvements in many categories: graphics get a huge overhaul, the complexities of gameplay increases, and entire genres are redone to take advantage of each new system’s capabilities.

Here is my list of video game compilations that are very much worth checking out.

Now Playing: Diablo III (Beta)

With the upcoming release date of May 15th rapidly approaching, Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo III is sure to sell like wildfire when it launches on PC and Mac. To test the waters before launch day, Blizzard opened up the beta for everyone to experience this past weekend. And experience I have. The game is nearly completed, so what was available for gamers was a nearly finished product, albeit with some limitations and restrictions due to its beta status. Regardless, Diablo III had many good things going for it. And here they are for you all, just in case you missed your chance to slaughter countless demons a few weeks early.

So what happened this week? A new God of War game was announced, which is itself a huge deal, but a few release dates were given out as well that have me equally giddy.
