For a large section of PC gamers everywhere, May 2012 is finally here. Diablo, freaking, THREE. Remember all those times you broke the game by gambling away for rarer items and SOJs became the de facto currency? Ah... good times. While the game may be receiving slightly mixed reviews during initial beta, we'll see if the game becomes well received, or if the online community ends up being another StarCraft 2. Lord knows Blizzard sort of needs another hit given the slow pace death of WoW users.
Other noteworthy games of the month includes Max Payne 3, a happy sequel to the series, thankfully releasing in the same month for the PC gamers. Another exciting release towards the end of the month would be Resistance: Burning Skies, perfect for the fifteen or so PS Vita owners (heh).
As always, we left out a number of games due to their interest level, but if you think we missed a game that really should be on the to-watch list, let us know and we'll happily add!
