AU Shippin' Out May 14-18

Flex your clicking fingers and get ready to play a sequel 12 years in the making.


When Diablo II was released 12 years ago, it sold 1 million units in its first two weeks on the market. Praised for its depth and intuitiveness, it was an improvement on Diablo in almost every way: bigger, bolder, and more accessible. Will Diablo III be able to achieve the same feat?

Diablo III sports a whole bunch of new features, character classes, and a new auction-house system, and will be available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 machines, as well as Mac computers, this Tuesday.

Also hitting store shelves this week is Rockstar's Max Payne 3, the third instalment in the Max Payne series, set eight years after the events of the last game. The new game will catch up with the now-former cop, who has spent the time since Max Payne 2 running from his troubled past, all the way to Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he works as a private bodyguard for a wealthy family.

Payne will fulfil his duties with a healthy helping of the series' signature bullet-time gameplay mechanic, in which players can slow the world to a crawl and have Max acrobatically leap into action. There's a variety of weaponry on hand, a cover system, and, for the first time in the series, multiplayer. Max Payne 3 is out this Thursday.

To see what else is out this week, check the list below:
