It's been a great year for old-school PC gamers. First Rise of the Triad, and now Shadow Warrior.

With May 15th less than two weeks away, it's no surprise that the Diablo III hype train is starting to chug along at full speed. Blizzard opened the game's doors to everybody with a Battle.net account for an open beta a couple of weekends back, and in the past few days, the company has released a slick new TV trailer and unveiled the fee structure for Diablo III's controversial auction house item-selling feature. (You know, the one that "forced" Blizzard to invoke always-on DRM, even for single player mode.) Are you ready to get gouged?
Speaking of PC gaming, a much-anticipated little title happened to have dropped today: Mass Effect 3. Perhaps you've heard of it? If you've been following the exploits of Commander Shepard and his rag-tag Normandy crew, it goes without saying that you pretty much HAVE to pick up the game. Don't dig silence? Our sister mag PCGamer has an in-depth review of Mass Effect 3.
It’s a great time to be a gamer, but it sure is a hard time to be a gamer’s wallet. Not only did Battlefield 3 just launch last week, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim are due any day now – and time-deprived gamers may not have even finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution yet. Then Rockstar games tossed their hat into the ring with last week’s announcement that they would be releasing a trailer for GTA 5. Well, they just released it, and yes, it looks awesome. We’re heading back to Los Santos, folks.
With a release date now firmly in place, Max Payne 3's officially done playing hide-and-go-hide-some-more. Sure, March isn't exactly right around the corner, but that hasn't stopped Rockstar from releasing an entirely engine-based trailer to whet our appetites. Make no mistake, though: Rockstar's signature eye for all things dramatic and cinematic hasn't suddenly blinked in the face of Max's grizzled mug. That said, once bullets and bodies start flying, the series' roots definitely peek through a bit. Also, a bonus: This trailer finally reveals why Max suddenly started rocking the same hair style as, well, 90 percent of videogame characters – which is to say, you know, baldness. Well, kind of, anyway. Check out the full thing after the break.

YouknowBattlefield 3 better than you knew William Shatner's music career after that ill-advised afternoon on Wikipedia. You've seen it all laid bare. Locations, classes, even lighting technology – you name it. There's just one thing missing from that equation: the, er, game. But hey, what's this nestled behind the break? Oh, DICE, you shouldn't have! No, seriously, you shouldn't have thrown all this extra garbage atop what should've been a perfectly servicable gameplay trailer. Oh well, it's still pretty impressive. Check out the full thing after the break.
