Well will you look at that. As we inch closer to the fall season, some publishers finally decided to release video games. In fact there's a solid bunch of games hitting this week, including a game many folks have been waiting quite a while for...can you guess what it is?
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4, Xbox One) - Next-gen consoles are finally getting Diablo 3 after being forced to wait almost a full year. The new version comes with the Reaper of Souls expansion and several enhancements including ultra smooth frame rates, higher quality models and textures, and plenty of console tweaks that make this one of the best versions of the game to date. Best of all, if you owned this on PS3 or 360 you can export and import your character into the new game! [4 player couch co-op, 4 player online co-op, 4 player combo co-op]
Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (PS3, PS4) - Having been released on the Xbox One and 360 earlier this year and then PC, the Sony platforms are the final systems to get their hands on this fun "family" shooter. The main mode of the game is a wave based co-op defense mode with multiple character classes of plants working to defend their gardens from zombies. It's quirky and fun. But only the PS4 supports local play. [4 player online co-op, 2 player couch co-op]
