The next generation of Rock Band launches October 6, and instrument bundles now up for preorder—$130 for the guitar and $250 for guitar, mic and drums. Sounds like a good time to hunt for used instruments!
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen growing fan anger around the hotly anticipated video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Turns out, the finished game doesn’t look as good as the early versions shown off in trailers. It’s not the first game to leave gamers feeling misled, and it won’t be the last.
If you're planning on grabbing Evolve when it launches tomorrow, you'll pretty much be getting a multiplayer experience similar in concept to Left 4 Dead where you can take on one of three monsters as one of 12 hunters (or vice versa). But it's a bit more complicated than that.

With just five short days before Blizzard's diabloical threequel hits store shelves, Amazon declares Diablo III the most preordered PC game in the online retailer's history, surpassing StarCraft II and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Blizzard must hate itself right now.
Customers of the world's largest dedicated video game retailer were shocked today when an automated phone call went out declaring the cancellation of Team Ico's eagerly-anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian. Say it isn't so, Sony! Update: GameStop apologizes for the mistake.
