As of this writing, central standard time, we are mere eight hours away from Diablo 3 hitting PC’s and effectively ending the rest of the week for tons of geeks across the country. I wager that this is easily the biggest PC launch of the year, or any platform for that matter, so ladies if you have a geektastic boyfriend or husband you may want to remind them to shower and eat for the next few days as battle.net has a way of causing people to forget that.
Also hitting shelves tonight is Max Payne 3, Rockstar’s followup to the series that effectively made bullet-time a staple of hardcore shooting games. This entrance in the series promises awesome multiplayer action and revamp of the shooting mechanics that certainly feel a little dated. There should be plenty of Rockstar polish and hey, maybe even a controversy or two.
Early reviews of Max Payne 3 seem pretty good so far, but expect the Geek’s take on the newest shoot-em up tomorrow during episode eight of the Just Us Geeks podcast. Everybody have fun tonight!
