Final Fantasy VII PS4 will cost more than the recent PC port

Last weekend, Square Enix screwed with its fans with too much pomp around announcing a PS4 release of the original Final Fantasy VII, seemingly a port of last year's PC release. You can get last year's PC release for $12 on Steam, but when Final Fantasy VII comes to PS4 in spring of 2015, it will be $16. I guess that's $4 for "system-exclusive features." The Share button, maybe?

New SaGa and Deception games are in development

It has been over ten years since Unlimited Saga. There have been re-releases in the interim. And a Gree social game, Emporers SaGa, a couple years ago in Japan. From the same source that brought us confirmation of Gravity Rus...

Gravity Rush 2 'in earnest development,' my heart not yet broken

Since being teased at Tokyo Game Show 2013, Gravity Rush 2 has been quiet. I certainly missed it at TGS 2014. And just about every other event I went to this year, even if it was an event that there was no way a Gravity ...

Rounding out the trend of Double Fine games coming to Sony's consoles just short of Massive Chalice, which you should all be playing, is Broken Age. It began as the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter that exploded, the first ...

I doubt you have 4 controllers, but Gang Beasts is coming to PS4

Over the weekend, Double Fine announced that the drunkard-on-ice-skates brawler would be making its way to PlayStation 4 next year, the same day it launches on PC (getting out of its current Early Access availability). Gang ...

Remastered Grim Fandango looks great, out next month

I know a skeleton of people are waiting to play this, what with it being a chore to track down a playable copy of the classic adventure game. And now we get an even more playable, modernized version with nicer textures and s...

Nya! Good god, Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe is anime as hell

I have a strong urge to get very, very good at Tekken 7 and just piss off (mostly western) players by beating them endlessly with this stupid cat girl.

Uncharted 4 trailer analysis: Hints at improvements over Uncharted 3 photo
Uncharted 4 trailer analysis: Hints at improvements over Uncharted 3
by Steven Hansen

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa" - Nathan Drake. 

As Chris mentioned when the trailer debuted at PlayStation Experience, Uncharted 4 looks, "very Uncharted." There are Nolan North quips at everything you see. The dark and dingy cave gives way to a sun-washed, cinematic vista as three birds fly by right as your eyes adjust to the sun.

The climbing, too, looks same as it ever was, save for the addition of a centuries-old, apparently indestructible soft-rock-climbing dagger. And a grappling hook, which was at least used once. 

But while the base mechanics are familiar, the layout, at least as it appears in this trailer, is different, and that's why I'm a bit more excited for A Thief's End after being less impressed with Uncharted 3

PS4's faceplate game cannot touch the New 3DS

Stuck with a boring PS4 because you can't afford or missed the 20th Anniversary one, or you bought the black one before the white one existed?  Sony's got your back. In limited quantities. For a fee. It starts with smal...

Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe photo
Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe
by Steven Hansen

"They said I could cuss." Oh, Jaffe.

Jaffe's (Twisted Metal, God of War) new studio's PS4 exclusive (in conjunction with Sony San Diego) is Drawn to Death, a third-person arena shooter set in a high school kid's violent notebook. That should get someone sent to a principal's office.

There are a number of different characters and some oddball weapons, like a dragon stuffed with gasoline breathing fire. Oh, teens. That everything--levels, guns, characters--comes from some teen's messed up imagination could make for a lot of wild, interesting stuff.

Drawn to Death is playable at PlayStation Experience, but in pre-alpha, so the team will be impromptu focus-testing at the show.

Not enough gorgeous 2D games? Skytorn coming to PS4

Gorgeous, procedurally generated Metroidvania, basically. It's joining an enormous group of games, yet they all seem to have a distinctive enough art style that I get excited for all of them. Though I'd rather play them on Vita than PS4, probably. Oh well. Skytorn looks lovely.
