Diablo Immortal is finally out and it turns out it’s actually a half-decent game… BUT it is rife with pay-for-power mechanics that could potentially have players spending tens of thousands of dollars to max out their character.

We are breaking down all the Diablo pay-to-win drama in today's Roundup so pull up a chair and get comfy. It’s a long one.

In other news GameStop employees walk out, Bioware contractors unionize, there’s a new Just Cause in development, and is E3 really back next year?

This week’s 5-Second Review brings back a painful memory and the Coming Soon section is real short.

Thanks for watching everyone and have a great weekend.
