Review: MLB 15 The Show photo
Review: MLB 15 The Show
by Steven Hansen

The Giants have won and lost back to back one-run ballgames to open the 2015 baseball season. They lost a starting pitcher and right fielder to the DL, scratched a first baseman and another starter with injury, called up a rookie to eventually take the series.

At nearly 42, Bartolo Colon, whose belly jiggles like flan in an earthquake and whose helmet routinely flies off while he is batting, was the opening day starter for the Mets. Half of the Arizona Diamondbacks look like Earthworm Jim. Mat Latos has a 94.50 ERA. Did you see Puig throw from foul right to third? Cubs fans have been pissing in beer cups (called "making Coors Light") at Wrigley Field because the bathroom lines are too long.

Baseball, sport, humanity. These things are interesting because they are our stories. The same stories we've always had, with different details, made newly interesting. The problem with MLB 15 The Show as a routinely well-made baseball simulation is that routine dulls. We want to see the dropped routine fly ball, the overthrown routine intentional walk. Not a fucking properly modeled Nike® Air Max MVP Elite 2 Speed +4 cleat buyable for 600 Stubs.

Get your free games, PSN credit, or cash from PlayStation Vita's class action settlement

Did you buy a PlayStation Vita before June 1, 2012? You might be able to get $25 in PSN credit or cash, or one of three kind of horrible game packages that are all technically valued above $50, thanks to Sony settling in a la...

Beware this naked fatty in Bloodborne photo
Beware this naked fatty in Bloodborne
by Jordan Devore

This guy. This guy right here.

It was late at night and I was already on edge in one of Bloodborne's unnerving Chalice Dungeons. I had hoped to quickly find the lever so I could proceed to the boss, get my ass kicked a few times, scrape by with an eventual win, and delve deeper to the next horrific floor. No funny business.

Before long, I found what I needed, but it was guarded by this big guy with a mace. His impossible swiftness caught me off guard, as did his proud nakedness. It's filthy down there!

Instead of fighting him, I pulled the lever and booked it to a safe spot. You must know when you're outmatched lest you incur the wrath of another loading screen. I returned this morning to find the fatty again for a quick video and sacrificed myself so you might catch a glimpse of his pale rolls.

MLB 15 The Show's best improvement is revenge

SCE San Diego Studio's MLB The Show series has a mode where players can live out fantasies of being a professional baseball player. In "Road to the Show" players can design their own avatars and take them on the long journey ...

Guy 'gits gud,' beats Bloodborne without leveling

YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin f...

Sony devours OnLive

So, who here remembers OnLive, PC gaming's first large scale solution for streaming hardware intensive games in order to play them on older systems? It feels like an eternity since anybody at all has been talking about it, bu...

MLB 15 The Show is all about realism

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.

You can put enemies to work in Bloodborne while farming Blood Echoes photo
You can put enemies to work in Bloodborne while farming Blood Echoes
by Jordan Devore

Depending on how far you are into Bloodborne, you've probably come to realize that this late-game area, accessible using the "Mergo's Loft: Middle" warp from the Hunter's Dream, is one of the best spots to quickly earn Blood Echoes (and also some Blood Vials while you're at it).

Those pigs, man. Horrifying as they look and sound, they pay the bills around here.

Previously, I took the safe approach -- one pig at a time. But while on a "lunch break" today, I accidentally figured out that it's even faster to take the first (isolated) pig down, and then run past the next two. They'll chase after you and get into a tussle with a nearby group of cloaked foes.

With luck, the two groups will nearly wipe each other out. Swoop in for any stragglers.

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...

You'd think Driveclub would want to stay away from the word 'buggy'

Driveclub will most likely be remembered for its promised, yet non-existent free PlayStation Plus version. The primary reason this never came to fruition is because Evolution Studios had to spend a significant amount of...

Bloodborne's game-breaking glitch patched

Last week, Chris told us about a game-breaking glitch in Bloodborne that made it so an item called the Lunarium Key, which is needed to reach a main-story boss, wouldn't appear. The issue has been fixed, so you can play co-op...

Where's our MLB 15 The Show review? (Royals suck edition)

PlayStation's baseball monopoly continues this year with the consistently good MLB 15 The Show (PS3, PS4, Vita). That does come with more caveats than ever this year. Online servers seem to be shutting down for the previous ...
