I don't get Sony's excuse for why we can't change PSN names

The PlayStation 3 is eight years old today. That's a long time. If you had a kid when you first bought the PlayStation 3, it would be eight years old today!  Many of us differ from our eight-years-ago-selves, but So...

Sony celebrates 20 years of PlayStation with a video

Devil Dice! I wonder if I can find my original disc. And, hey, Sony actually acknowledging the Vita (also advertising the pink one on their Japanese YouTube page)! Less good than making more games for it, but, you know. Plus...

Review: Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit! photo
Review: Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit!
by Brittany Vincent

Some may call Senran Kagura inherently tasteless, but the series of action-packed brawlers has depth and satisfying combat. The games have swept the handheld community mainly because of their increasingly risqué content, but their best-kept secret is that they're just plain fun.

Yeah, there's a whole lot of indecent exposure in each of the Senran Kagura games. No one's disputing that. But so what? These are genuinely fun and engaging titles, and the latest spinoff under the Senran Kagura umbrella is no different. Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit! may be lighthearted and riddled with thinly veiled jokes about male anatomy, but it's also a challenging rhythm game skewed toward an adult audience that can be enjoyed by just about anyone -- especially if you like your sundaes with Senran Kagura girls on top. Just don't expect award-winning prose or Grammy-nominated tracks.

Booooo: Bloodborne delayed until March 2015

I thought a February 2015 release date for the recently revealed Bloodborne was too good to be true, and it seems that was the case. The game is now on track for a March 24 launch, delaying the game by roughly a month. F...

Activision's not playing nice: Call of Duty blocked from PS4 Share Play

Activision's taking one of the most basic social skills that everyone learned in kindergarten and totally disregarding it. The publisher's using its biggest title of the year to be the first, and most prevalant, example of a ...

Driveclub's PS+ version has been a disaster

The Order: 1886 sure is, uh, cinematic photo
The Order: 1886 sure is, uh, cinematic
by Steven Hansen

I finally played The Order: 1886, Ready at Dawn's upcoming PS4, monster-filled, alternate-London-history third-person shooter here at Paris Games Week.

I still really want to like it. I like a lot of things about it. Well, mainly its aesthetic, both the technical marvel and the filmic look. But I was kind of bored playing the game. Maybe it didn't help I lacked story context, starting somewhere a few chapters in. There was no emotional manipulation for me to care about our squad making our way to one of our members who had been pinned downed, a feat I only realized we were doing after I did it.

And I felt no tinge of sadness for the other squad member that dies--good ole What'shisname--after a little scene where you drag his bleeding-out-body into cover, firing a pistol at a few swarms of enemies on the roof.
