New 3DS XL review photo

These Bloodborne PS4s are kind of lazily done, but I want them


Why did I just get a Destiny PS4
Jan 22
My launch PS4 died a few months ago. Yep, just up and died. So I had to pick up a new one, and figured hey, why not the Destiny white PS4 -- it's the same price, and I can give the pack-in game away. It was a good idea a... read

Mad Catz' new controller looks like a Michael Bay Decepticon

Jan 06
I can't look away from Mad Catz' new controller for Android devices and PC. I just can't. The L.Y.N.X. 9 is meant to "offer a premium [see: $299.99; yes, really] gaming experience in almost any situation," though it's primari... read
