When speaking to the Retronauts podcast, Capcom opened up a bit about the PSN submission process, and Mega Man X6 happened to come up, as it's still missing on the service. According to Capcom there's music that creates ...

Celebrate Sonic's birthday with cheap Sega games on PSN

Jun 23

Oh shoot, it's Sonic's birthday today! He's 24 years old. I find that unsettling for some reason. Anyway, Sega is holding a celebratory sale on PlayStation Network. Besides Sonic games, this is an inexpensive way to score Yak...

The largest puzzle game ever? It feels like every time we hear an estimate for The Witness' length, the number grows. A lot. Designer Jonathan Blow expects "the average time of 100%ing the game to be over 70 hours." That woul...

Katamari designer's new game Wattam is all warm and fuzzy

Jun 01 // Jordan Devore
It starts with just the Mayor, that boxy green guy pictured above. He has a penchant for explosions. You can assume direct control of him and countless other objects (which, hilariously, have human names) and your ultimate goal is to explode together by holding hands to form a chain. The trick is using each character's ability to interact with their surroundings and one another. Doing so will expand the world and bring new folks into the fray, from sushi to a toilet to a lawn mower. The music brings this concept home. Characters have their own sounds, their own tunes, and the audio flows to form a cohesive whole even as you incessantly flip back and forth between them. This is the kind of game best played socially with a group of friends and some beers, or perhaps with a child. Its creation was influenced by Takahashi playing make-believe with his two-year-old. That inspiration shows. Wattam is coming to PlayStation 4 next year, and I am pumped.

High on life
"Oh, thank eff. There's a trailer!" A couple weeks ago, I saw Wattam, a near-indescribable game from Funomena and the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi, at a pre-E3 event. (He had excellent socks.) I'd heard that n...

PlayStation Plus's exclusive take on Brian Michael Bendis' Powers will return in 2016. I'm not quite sure why this is happening, what with the cardboard acting and overall cheese factor, but at least Chris will have another season to watch.  Not that that means much.
