This just might be it, folks! The first entry in the next generation of consoles just might be unveiled in three weeks.  On February 20th, Sony will hold a “special event,” and it’s not confirmed what it will be about. Although, one could speculate that it is indeed about the PlayStation 4.

A Wealth Of PS4 Rumors Have Arrived

I have no idea if I want the next generation to be here or not. On one hand, there is a wealth of juice left in the current generation of consoles. If Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs can somehow run on the Xbox 360 and the PS4 even remotely like the demo shown at last year’s E3, then […]

PS3 Has Now Shipped More Than Xbox 360

When the PS3 launched back in 2006, nobody thought it would even be able to compete with the Xbox 360, with it’s outrageous high price tag and the average launch library (although I think that Resistance: Fall Of Man was a great game). Seven years later, it seems that PS3 is a force to be reckoned with, […]

Journey Climbs Back To The Top Of PSN Store

I had been waiting for Journey since thatgamecompany, of Flower and FlOw fame, announced it and I only recently got my hands on it. I haven’t touched it yet, but will do when the time is right.

Next Gen Consoles Announcement May Be Imminent

Let’s face it, compared to the high-end PCs of today, the consoles are much weaker, especially when it comes to multiplatform games. While a few exclusive games such as Halo 4 from the Xbox 360 and The Last Of Us from the PlayStation 3 might have awe-inspiring graphics, the fact is that 2011’s epic Skyrim ‘s console versions pale in comparison […]

A New Assassins Creed III Trailer Rises

Let me get one thing straight right off the bat, October 31st will be one of the best days of this year. Why? Because Assassin’s Creed III. In my own opinion, no other new IP this generation has had as much impact on the masses as Ubisoft’s hstory/sci-fi series did. It almost always features a […]

Deal-Breaking Issues With Wii U Arise

Nintendo Wii U is an interesting piece of technology. The original Wii was a breath of fresh air when it came out with it’s motion controls that both Sony and Microsoft tried to recapture. And now the second generation of the Wii has a secondary screen on it’s controller. So it’s safe to say that […]

Radical Entertainment has been around for a long time and are perhaps best known for their Prototype series. They’re quite talented and their games have been getting better than average ratings, but Activision says that Radical’s newest offering, Prototype 2, failed to, “find a broad commercial audience,” thus leading to Activision shutting them down.

Kazuo Hirai Steps Down From Sony Computer Entertainment

The case could be made that Kaz Hirai led the PlayStation brand to where it is today. While the PlayStation was a straightaway hit in Japan and Asia in general, it couldn’t make as much as a big impact stateside since the game library was largely Asian. But due to the efforts of Kaz Hirai, […]

Sony Summarizes Beyond Two Souls E3 Demo

As previously noted by me, David Cage is one of the most innovative and genius minds of gaming right now. And the last offering by him was Heavy Rain, which introduced the Interactive Drama genre to the gaming industry on it’s own. And this E3, he showed Quantic Dream’s new project, Beyond: Two Souls which […]

Definitive Version Of Assassins Creed III On Wii U

The Wii U releases this Fall, and if they want to parallel the insane sales and fame of the first Wii, they will need some pretty heavy developer attention, and it seems like Ubisoft has stepped up to the task of helping this HD iteration of the Wii to stand up on it’s feet, and […]

Gabriel Belmont Whips It In The Lords Of Shadow Sequel

The first game was shiny on the outside, and a borrowed a bit too much from other games like the God of War series on the inside. Further adding to it’s downsides, it was a reboot which strayed far too much from the original Castlevania and felt too much like a new series. The gameplay […]

Assassin’s Creed might be one of the most impressive new IPs of this generation. Starting with 2007’s Assassin’s Creed, the series has had constant hits with 3 more games after the original.

The Last Of Us Places Emphasis On Survival Elements

Let’s face it, most of the people who are familiar with video games are stoked for The Last Of Us, the upcoming game by Naughty Dog, mostly known for their stellar Uncharted series on the PS3. They’re also behind Crash Bandicoot and Jak And Daxter series which were famous in the PSOne/PS2 era. They’ve earned numerous […]

Bethesda Files For Dawnguard Trademark

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been a great hit among hardcore and casual gamers despite being an single-player only RPG with no multiplayer elements whatsoever. It seems like Bethesda Softworks can churn out nothing but Game of the Year contenders, as they came out with Fallout 3, Oblivion and Morrowind before Skyrim, and all of […]

Namco Bandai Announces It Will Devour Souls Again

Frustrating. It’s the word that fits both Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls like a glove. Make no mistake, I do not mean to portray the series in a negative light. It’s one of those franchises which have stuck to their guns, making games which can only be completed by the most hardcore and persistent, resulting […]
