Last year, Pendulo Studios gave us a romp of the point-and-click variety, with a story full of monsters and dames. The Next Big Thing puzzled and joked its way to a 8.5 score here at Gamer Limit.

Pendulo returns with Yesterday. This time around the studios plumb gamers into the depths of the occult, sampling bits of gruesome torture and madness. It is no understatement to say they outdo themselves in the process.

Spanish game developer Pendulo Studios just released its newest title, Yesterday. To commemorate the occasion, they also released a trailer. Full of torture, alchemy, satanic worship and more.

At the end of the trailer, we’re left with the haunting words, “this is going to be fun,” but will it?

Diablo III Tyrael

Blizzard is totally for serious this time, guys. They just announced Diablo III‘s official release date of May 15, 2012. You can pre-purchase digital copies right now, and the game will unlock at 12:01 am PDT on the 15th.

The game will also be available at retailers in the USA, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Other regions like Latin America and Russia will have to wait until June 7th. Blizzard’s press release contains more details about other fully localized versions. While I can’t confirm that this May 15th release date is because of my birthday, I can’t deny it either.

In a sad turn of events, 1UP is reporting that Diablo III will launch without one of it’s planned modes – PVP Arena. Evidently, it will come later in the year in the form of a patch. The PVP Arena mode would essentially pit players against each other like any standard deathmatch situation — a mode a lot of fans were looking forward to, given that the series has only traditionally provided world PVP.

While I don’t think it will break the game, this move is particularly surprising, because of how much it will fracture the community. Blizzard, like Valve, is one to wait until their games are 100% finished before launch — my guess is Activision has had enough of “Blizzard Time”, and is forcing them to launch it.

Mass Effect 3 is here, and much to the chagrin of non-Collectors-Edition buyers, there is day one DLC — specifically a downloadable pack that adds new squad member costumes, a new weapon, a new mission, and a new very spoilery squad member.

In fact, this DLC character in particular is the absolute focus on this pack, as original Mass Effect fans most likely have been dreaming about this moment for years.

Do not click the break or continue reading unless you’re ready for spoilers for this DLC only — specifically regarding the squadmate. Read more… »

Mass Effect, over the years, has been quite the chameleon. At first, it started as a pretty RPG heavy title that involved tons of customization and obtuse design choices. Then it evolved into possibly the most streamlined product Bioware had ever produced.

Mass Effect 3 attempts to marry the two types of gameplay into one action packed conclusion. But does it succeed? Or is it too action packed for its own good? Read more… »

Diablo III coming in Q2 2012
By: | February 9th, 2012

Diablo III

While it’s not quite a firm release date, mega-publisher Activision confirmed a Q2 2012 window for the highly anticipated Diablo III in their most recent earnings call. This narrows the release date down to sometime between April and June of this year.

The game has already undergone changes, including some based on player feedback from the latest beta, but knowing Blizzard’s track record, it’s probably the safe bet the game’s going to be a hit. Diablo III takes place twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Though some familiar faces like Deckard Cain will make an appearance, the game features an all new set of heroes.

The next update is set to include a more polished UI and more class customization. While the number of playable classes will be reduced from twelve to nine, each class is getting more weapon unlocks for more variety. Three of them–Light, Medium, and Heavy–will be available to new players right off the bat. No surprises there.
