Bloodborne

That fix for Bloodborne's long load times is out now


And a new jazzed up loading screen!
Apr 23
Bloodborne is a pretty fantastic action game, but as I mentioned in my review, it had a few annoying issues at launch. My chief complaint was the long load times, accompanied by a boring black screen with the game's logo. Tod... read

Apr 22
Dell must have a truck load of these PlayStation 4 The Last of Us Remastered bundles because it's pricing them to move. In this solid priced bundle, you'll be getting about $550 worth of stuff for only $400 (plus applicable tax because someone's gotta pay for the damn pothole down 5th Street and lord knows it's not Steve). read

So that's where Bloodborne's infamous closed door leads


Well that was anticlimactic
Apr 22
Have you been to Bloodborne's best room yet? The one filled with pottery just begging to be smashed to pieces? If you walk past the pots (after breaking them, of course) there's a curious door. You can interact with it, but ... read

PlayStation Vita

Is this the next PlayStation Vita?


Sure looks that way

A Twitter bot may have spilled the beans on as-yet-unannounced new PlayStation Vita design. The tweet, published on the weekend by @trademark_bot, shared details of a patent filed recently by Sony Computer Entertainment for "a portable LCD screen game machine controller."

112 games to drop cash on

Bloodborne loading

Snappier Bloodborne load times coming this month


As well as a fix for 'abnormal game behavior'
Apr 14
How much time have we spent staring at that damned Bloodborne logo during the game's long loading screens? Actually, I'm not so sure I want to know. With save files totaling 50+ hours of play, my number would be gross. From S... read

Prepare to right swipe
Apr 13
Left swipe, left swipe, left swipe. That's what scores of Victorian-era London ladies did when they saw Galahad on Tinder. His profile was so boring -- just a bunch of pictures of the back of his head. Also, his bio said he ... read

No guns, either

Ball boys gonna ball boy
Apr 02
If you've been on the fence about MLB 15 The Show and whether or not it truly represents the splendor and majesty of America's game, then let this video be the deciding factor in your curiosity. Just as in real life, ball boys can be tricky little bastards. If you don't keep your eye on them, then this type of shit happens. read
