Diablo 3 For PC Vs. Console: Can The 360 And PS3 Match Up?

The release of Diablo 3 for consoles was, to say the least unexpected; so much so that its announcement was actually a bit disappointing, as Blizzard’s appearance at an early Sony PlayStation 4 press conference seemed to hint an entirely new game. Predictably, porting one of the PC’s most beloved franchises to the console has caused a fair share of grumbling; diehard computer gamers have, as always, turned their noses up at the couch experience.

3 Hilarious Giant Bomb Quick Looks For Games You Will Never Play

When I think of Giant Bomb’s videos, the first that comes to mind is the Quick Looks. In these, the crew sits and plays a section of the game for our enjoyment. Generally, when I watch these, I prefer to watch videos for games I will never play. I don’t want spoilers for games I will play, and these games I won’t play tend to be pretty dumb, which in turn leads to more hilarious videos.

Get Sporty On Your Android With These 7 Free & Fun Games

Sports are fun. Video games are fun. Combine the two on your Android device and it’s a guaranteed good time!

And especially on smartphones, I find that arcade games work better because it’s not as immersive a gaming environment as a big-screen console game. Android has a huge collection of fantastic games, including these sports games that are free, fun and addictive.
