Oh give us a break, it was the first time any of us got to cover the launch of a Diablo game. And hey, we did manage to spotlight five mobile games that have almost completely nothing in common with Blizzard's game.

But other than those three, our five gaming apps of the week had absolutely nothing in common with Diablo III. Except for N.O.V.A. 3, which is also the third game in a series.

Thanks, This Could Hurt!
