Review: Lights, Camera, Party!
by Ian Bonds

Mini-games. Apparently, they're still a thing. If you own one of those new-fangled motion controllers for your system, invariably you'll discover that there are mini-game collections to be found for your device. PlayStation Move users have one of these collections available now as a download on PlayStation Network.

This is a review of said game, Lights, Camera, Party! The exclamation mark is only part of the title, nothing more.

Review: Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection
by Ian Bonds

If there's one type of game that I love, it's lightgun games. If there's another, it's specifically the Resident Evil series. If there is THREE...well, let's just stop there. The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles in the Resident Evil series were released for the Wii a few years back and now they're available on PlayStation Network with a new coat of paint and not much else.

And I'm ok with that.

E3: Sony announces Wonderbook for the PlayStation 3

Using the PlayStation Eye, the Wonderbook makes books come to life! Imagine reading a page about a dragon -- with Wonderbook, the dragon will fly off the page and, I don't know, set the curtains in your living room on fire? N...

Review: Sorcery  photo
Review: Sorcery
by Jim Sterling

Sorcery was announced before the PlayStation Move had even graced a store shelf, and it quickly became the most promising motion title out of Sony's small stable of software. Unfortunately, the spell-slinging adventure never made it in time for launch, with the Move launching in 2010 and this review appearing in the wonderful future universe of 2012. 

It's a long time to wait for what has been, quite frankly, the only game designed explicitly for PlayStation Move that has looked original, unique, and geared toward the typical PS3 consumer, devoid as it is of inane carnival minigames while making use of the criminally ignored navigation controller. 

Nevertheless, over a year and a half is a long time to wait for anybody who bought a Move and expected it to have more uses than as a gimmicky alternative controller for first-person shooters. At the risk of ending this introduction with a trite question, one has to ask -- can a single late game justify the PlayStation Move? Sorcery cannot answer that question because, if there is a game that can do it, this isn't going to be the one.

Surreal adventure game Datura comes to PS3 on May 8

You remember hearing about Datura, right? It's that PlayStation 3 adventure game with a floating hand, an assortment of seemingly unconnected, bizarre sequences, and the pig. If you couldn't tell, I am struggling to describe...

Cram these Sorcery screens up your magic arse

Sony's conjured up nine new screenshots for its upcoming PS Move game, Sorcery. I said "conjured" because it's a game about magic, and that was a funny joke. It's like a pun, or a play on words. Being good at words is what yo...

Preview: Trying to make sense of Datura
by Jordan Devore

Datura is one of those games that compels you to share your in-game experience with friends as if you're telling a grand story about some meaningful feat you accomplished. For me personally, it tends to be exploration-centric games like Fallout: New Vegas that evoke such a response.

While Plastic Studios' latest project for PlayStation 3 is no open-world game in that sense, it does allow the player to walk around freely while trying to understand their unsettling surroundings. I suppose you could call this a modern adventure game, or something to that effect.

One thing is for sure: Datura is f*cking weird.
