Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…

Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 & PS4, Aug. 19th)
Yes, Diablo III is being released in yet another new edition. This updated take on the console version of Diablo III contains the Reaper of Souls expansion, and will feature 1080p, 60fps graphics on the Xbox One and PS4. If you still haven’t plunged into the catacombs of Diablo III, this is the best reason yet.
