Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Details - Sexy, Mysterious, and Hates Demons

Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Diablo 3 won't link up with Battle.net, which means no cross-platform play using your profile on the PC side. Word comes from Blizzard community manager 'Vaeflare' speaking on the Battle.net forums, as spotted by Shacknews.

The post also confirms that there's no plan either to add gamepad support to the PC version of the game. Similarly, the console versions will not support USB-connected mouse/keyboard controls. ShackNews rightly notes that this console take on Diablo 3 is clearly a different game, with new elements such as a dodge move. It's unfortunate that the console and PC versions of the game aren't part of the same, unified network, but it's not all together surprising.

Iron Man 3: Revealing New Poster Unveiled

Iron Man 3 has released yet another new poster. However, unlike the character posters we've been getting, this one is serving as a proper welcoming for the March 5 premiere of the film's final trailer. Originally leaking on Tumblr in low-res form, the poster was subsequently posted in official capacity this morning on Yahoo.

Indeed, if the poster is any indication, then next week's trailer should be giving us some new insight into the film's plot...which apparently involves Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark being backed up by a horde of bad-ass-looking Iron Man armors. (Not to mention an Iron Patriot-decked James Rhodes.) While the existing preview trailers have let fans know for some time that The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) will concoct a cruel conspiracy to humble the brash billionaire genius, it seems that the part of this plot involving a dangerous newly developed nanovirus called "Extremis" could ultimately backfire on the sinister self-proclaimed "teacher."

We all know the loose run-down as it now stands: An exploded armor collection, an ostentatious abode reclaimed by the sea, a crashed and beaten Tony forced to take a shivering trek through snow, and rogue pervert Iron Man armors creeping up on Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts while she's asleep in bed. However, several months after witnessing nothing but the initial offense of the bad guys, it is now surely time to get a look at the rebound. Well, the cocky Avenger who once bragged about having "a Hulk" could soon find himself becoming a literal army of one.

Check out the full poster below and wonder if The Mandarin's camouflage pants can handle urine stains.

Uncharted 3

It looked very much like Naughty Dog was going to serve up Uncharted 3's multiplayer for the free-to-play crowd earlier this week, and now we can call it official. Multiplayer content in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has been carved out into its own free-to-play framework, offering fans limited progression and unlimited play.

It's a pretty straigthforward setup: download the multiplayer client at no charge from the PS Store and play all you want up to level 15. While you can continue playing with no problem after that point, profile progression remains locked until you pay to remove the level cap. 

Those who already own Uncharted 3 can just keep playing unhindered, and those who don't also now have the option of purchasing a DLC-packed Game of the Year Edition from the PS Store, for $39.99. If you already have an existing Uncharted 3 profile, you'll also receive a free Naughty Dog Paw rank icon and Naughty Dog Paw t-shirt for your online characters as a thank you gift.

The New Razer Edge Tablet: A Real Game Changer

Razer's gaming-focused Edge tablets are coming soon, with the hardware maker confirming that pre-orders will open for the two launch models on March 1, 2013 at 12:01am PT. The Edge and Edge Pro tablets start at $999.99 for the base model, with two additional options priced at $1,299.99 and $1,449.99, respectively.

The base-level model packs in an Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and an NVIDIA GT 640 GPU, with a 64GB of SSD storage to install your games onto. The two higher-priced models use Pro specs, which means an upgrade to an i7 CPU, 8GB of DDR3, and either 128GB or 256GB of storage, depending on which one you go for.

Razer didn't confirm yet when the Edge will be released, but the company had previously suggested that it was shooting for Q1 2013. With pre-orders kicking off at the beginning of the month, it likely won't be much longer.

Gears of War Judgment

Gears of War: Judgment arrives on March 19, 2013 with a Season Pass in tow. Surprise! (try to act surprised) The "VIP Season Pass" will be available at launch for 1,600 MS Points (which translates to $20 in real life money), and it includes a number of extras on top of the expected DLC subscription.

The DLC isn't detailed in full, but the plans seem to call for two post-release content drops, adding six maps, two modes, and new weapon/armor skins. Along with the DLC, Season Pass holders also get to enjoy early access to the add-on content, a permanent double XP boost for their profile, five exclusive weapon skins, and four exclusive armor skins.


PlayStation 4 Won't Block Used Games, Sony Confirms

Sony plans to make all available PlayStation 4 games accessible for purchase and download from the console's online store, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told The Guardian. He explained that the PS4 is following the lead set by the PS Vita, which already offers much of its content as a download-only proposition.

Yoshida also hinted at some changes to Sony's current PlayStation Plus subscription program. "We could have gold, silver, or platinum levels of membership, something like that," he said. Reading what he had to say though, it sounds like this might not be in place until well after day one of the console launch. "With one subscription you have access to thousands of games," he said of supporting legacy titles on the non-backwards compatible console, adding, "that's our dream."

Sony will undoubtedly be revealing plenty more in the coming months. Check out The Guardian's Q&A for the full rundown of what Yoshida had to say.

The Walking Dead Screenshot Shambles Forth From Telltale Games

It the wait for Telltale Games' second season of The Walking Dead is already feeling a little unbearable, then you'll be happy to hear that more is coming before the story proper picks up again. Story consultant Gary Whitta said as much in a recent chat with IGN, though he stopped short of offering any specific details.

"You won't have to wait for season two to play more Walking Dead," he said. He goes on to say that the second season is "way off," but that "there may very well be more Walking Dead from Telltale before season two." He also suggested that news on this front could be coming soon. Check out the video appearance on IGN for a more complete picture.

The final multiplayer DLC pack for Mass Effect 3, called Reckoning, arrives today, February 26, 2013, and a new trailer is here to celebrate the occasion. BioWare livestreamed a look at the content a few days in advance of the release, and one NeoGAF poster took the time to hammer out all of the details, for those who are curious (via Destructoid).

The pack adds six new characters to the game, including a Collector Adept and an oversized Geth Juggernaut Soldier (think Geth Primes). There's also an equally massive hammer-wielding Krogan. The pack also adds six new weapons to the multiplayer mode and an assortment of new equipment that you can use to power up your gear. Check out that NeoGAF post for a full tally of what's been added to ME3's multiplayer for free since launch. It's pretty impressive.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted DLC Launches Today

If you're still playing Criterion Games' Need for Speed: Most Wanted and you love DLC, then today is going to be your FAVORITE. Electronic Arts just dropped three content packs on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, amounting to a pair of car five-packs and a chunky, new location to decimate in your supercharged automobile of choice.

The two car packs focus on Movie Legends and Need for Speed Heroes, respectively. The latter brings in rides from Smokey and the Bandit, Fast & Furious, Gone in 60 Seconds, and the James Bond-verse. Legends gathers together whips from various NFS games of old, including NFS3: Hot Pursuit, NFS: Underground, NFS: Underground 2, NFS: Undercover, and the original NFS: Most Wanted from 2005.

Conan O'Brien's latest Clueless Gamer review for Tomb Raider might have just single-handedly set back the "sexism in games" conversation by 20 years. Watch the entire segment as if it's satire (since it is) and it hurts a little bit less. 

Conan seems to like Lara Croft's latest adventure. He's terrible at PLAYING it, and manages to impale the shipwrecked explorer through the throat numerous times on an unfortunately positioned tree branch. But his review score is... positive? I think? See for yourself.

Uncharted 3

A now-edited PlayStation Blog post suggests that the multiplayer mode in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be offered up as free-to-play content (via GamingEverything). The post specifically mentioned "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer (Free To Play)," though the fact that the post was later updated to remove that detail puts this news squarely in the "credible rumor" category until we hear otherwise from Sony.

Naughty Dog promised "some very exciting information about [Uncharted 3] multiplayer around the start of next year" in a late-2012 blog post, as Joystiq notes. There's been no confirmation from Sony, though if things are far enough along that a mention made its way into a PlayStation Blog post, then you can likely expect to hear more soon. Assuming, of course, that the information is accurate to begin with.


The Crow Remake Eyes James McAvoy?


Posted February 25, 2013 - By Joseph Baxter

The Crow Remake Eyes James McAvoy?

It appears that the long-discussed remake of The Crow, much like its protagonist, has been brought back from the dead. Not only that, but according to a report from Bloody Disgusting, the latest name being circulated to play the macabre mauler of the menacing is none other than Professor Charles Xavier of the current X-Men film franchise, James McAvoy.

Long delayed, the film seemed to be on the fast-track with its then-rumored star, Bradley Cooper seemingly on board until it was again derailed by a drama-infused lawsuit in 2011 between Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company. However, things seemed to be looking up for the project at the beginning of 2012. While Cooper was out, the creative team of screenwriter, Jesse Wigutow and Spanish director, F. Javier Gutiérrez were hired to get things moving. While there wasn't too many widely-known previous projects between each member of this collaboration, it did appear that the franchise, once glorified by James O'Barr's original comic book title and the 1994 original film starring the late Brandon Lee, was well on its way towards another iteration.

Now, one year since we last heard any substantive news, the Scot-born McAvoy is reportedly close to donning the goth white facepaint to play murdered rocker, Eric Draven. Resurrected by a mystical, mysterious crow, Draven is endowed supernatural powers and Wolverine-like instant healing to carry out vengeance against some stone-cold killers for not only his own death, but the death of his beloved girlfriend.

At this point, nothing has been revealed in regards to the new film's plot, stylistic approach, or even a projected release date. However, it's sure to be a tour de force montage of unapologetic, viciously-violent, and strikingly-satisfying revenge porn against a gritty, dark Detroit's most wretchedly repugnant.


Kingdom Hearts HD Collection Announced For PlayStation 3

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is confirmed for release in North America on an unspecified date in fall 2013, according to a morning press release from Square Enix. The deceptively named release is actually a two-pack collection, packing together Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.

Final Mix is a former Japan-only release, so it should be the star of the show for Kingdom Hearts fans in North America. The HD remake of Chain of Memories came to the U.S. for PlayStation 2 in 2008, though a subsequent Japan-only release for PS3 added enhanced visuals and story videos synopsizing Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

The now-confirmed North America release packs both of these games together onto one disc, adding in "enhanced gameplay mechanics" and PS3 Trophies this fall.

Iron Man 3: New Pepper Potts Poster


Posted February 25, 2013 - By Joseph Baxter

Iron Man 3: New Pepper Potts Poster

Iron Man 3 continues to roll out its series of character posters, this time with an Empire exclusive focusing on Gwyneth Paltrow as Tony Stark's love interest and corporate caretaker, Pepper Potts.

While the exact details on the film's plot are still somewhat vague, what is perfectly clear, is that at some point in the film, Iron Man gets his ass handed to him in a huge way. The aftermath of this incident will leave a wave of destruction that won't even exclude his kick-ass pad and collection of armors. However, if we are to go by the tone of this poster, then it appears that the possession which is most precious to him, Pepper, will be left in mourning for her man...at least for a little while.

As Pepper holds the now-familiar imagery of Iron Man's gashed-inflicted empty helmet, it looks like Tony won't be going through this sequel of suffering alone in the build-up to game-changing events with the dreaded Mandarin, his villainous cohorts, and the Extremis nanovirus. While the film will see Tony's old life destroyed, something that is perhaps even more powerful could rise from the sparky remnants.

Iron Man 3 gets ready to file the biggest private insurance claim ever at theaters on May 3. Check out the full Pepper Potts poster below and speculate if she's in mourning or just giving an impromptu performance of Hamlet.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: New Costume Revealed

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has given fans a look at the new digs that the titular web-head will sport in next year's sequel.

While director, Marc Webb has spent the last month or so dropping numerous tidbits of visual clues about the new film on Twitter, including a small part of Spidey's new mask, it appears that a more substantive look at the new wall-crawling couture would come in the form of this new image, exclusive to ComingSoon.

Indeed, this glimpse at current Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield's new spider-garb shows a more minimal approach compared to the one taken in last year's The Amazing Spider-Man. Gone is the small, sinewy, mesh-like surface which seemed to give Spidey's entire body a graspable consistency that made you wonder if his suit was official NBA gear made by Spalding. In fact, it is a such a purist departure that it does seem to resemble the outfit worn by Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.

However, the most notable modification comes in the form of the super-sized eye screens, relieving Spidey of what would seemingly be a limited field of vision that the last costume afforded him. Ironically enough, this franchise reboot, which started out with an ambitious new take on the classic costume will roll into its sequel with what may be the most comic-book-accurate live-action rendition of the Spider-Man costume, yet.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gets tingly Spidey Senses for both Gwen Stacy and Mary-Jane Watson at theaters on May 2, 2014. Check out the full image of the new costume, as well as a comparison pic below!
