There's a new Godzilla game rampaging toward PS3

Everybody run, it's a new Godzilla game! Though, due to the fact that this is a new release and we're only getting our first look at it, it's actually just a few screens and a meager bit of information. Still, we should get h...

Freedom Wars isn't free: Another 12 minutes of gameplay

Freedom Wars, out now in Japan, isn't being coy strutting its stuff. Here's more monster killing. And weird clothes made entirely of straps.

Fight against a giant Scarecrow in Arkham Knight's exclusive PS4 DLC

Scarecrow's reveal during the Sony E3 2014 press conference was a highlight. Woke me right up, it did. Batman: Arkham Knight was yet another one of those games to (annoyingly) have system-exclusive content -- in this specific...

It looks like The Last of Us PS4 pre-orders will be refunded after all

For the most part, the policy on the PSN (and a lot of other digital outlets) is a 100% "no refund" policy. When you pre-order something, the price is locked in, your bank account is drained, and you're committed. That seemed...

Review: Entwined  photo
Review: Entwined
by Kyle MacGregor

Entwined mesmerized in its unexpected E3 debut, washing over viewers like a breath of fresh air, with its sweeping strings, pastel waves of color, and a romantic scene between two creatures from different worlds.

Unveiled by a team of unknowns under the industry's brightest lights, it came totally out of left field, interposed between two of PlayStation's hottest upcoming properties. We were made to presume this was the successor to Flower, or perhaps the next Unfinished Swan, given Sony's track record taking talent out of university programs under its nurturing wing.

Talent is the key word here. It's obviously something Pixelopus, the nascent studio behind Entwined, possesses in large quantities. But those gifts seem raw and unrefined. The developer's first effort desperately wants to be brilliant and profound, but too often settles for something decidedly more vapid.

These PS4 pre-orders automatically pre-load

One of the reasons some people still go with physical media is so they don't have to wait for downloads. Sony wants to fix that with games that automatically pre-load onto your console so you can play them as soon as they unl...

Yoshida notes that the Vita is being used more and more as a 'companion' photo
Yoshida notes that the Vita is being used more and more as a 'companion'
by Chris Carter

I picked up the PlayStation Vita at launch, and still have no regrets. Ludicrous proprietary memory card prices aside (man was that a disaster, and the prices are still too high), I really enjoy Sony's newest portable, but it's become increasingly harder to get excited for it when Sony has nothing to show for it at E3.

Speaking to Game Informer, Sony president Shuhei Yoshida shines some light as to why the company didn't go guns blazing with the Vita during E3. He notes, "It’s still an independent platform you can play on. There are games for Vita, especially in Japan. However, more and more people use it as a companion device for PS4 and we are very happy that people are using it as such. We are bringing PlayStation Now to PS Vita. We are making it more of a total ecosystem, with PS4 as the central device."

He also didn't discuss any new titles coming from any major franchises, which isn't a great sign for the near future at least. So for now, it seems as if using your Vita in conjunction with your PS4 (remote play and the upcoming PlayStation Now) is the best way to use it.

I hope you have a PS4.
