Starblood Arena is heading to PSVR in Spring 2017

Gravity Rush 2 is exactly as I'd expected, and that's a damn good thing

I would be lying if I said that Gravity Rush 2 wasn’t the first game I ran to the moment I got through the door on day one of PAX Australia. I know that Steven Hansen has already previewed it at E3, but considering that this has been ...   read
