Street Fighter characters in PAIN?

Street Fighter characters are coming to PAIN. This is more or less confirmed. Somehow the new trophies coming for the next add-on already appear on the compare trophy list (at least sometimes). I wonder what characters will be there. Mo...

 
 
 

MGS4 demo is out on Japanese PSN

Welcome back the new "old" E3

Everybody who hasn't read up on the E3 2009, should do so now. Like over here. From the looks of things E3 will go back to being the colossus of a game show next year. Big booths and masses of people. This year's E3 was strange in a lot...

This ends TGS 2008 for me

The first day of the TGS 2008 - My impressions

Trophy Whoring 101: Cheat yourself some trophies

Yes, I'm a trophy whore. Right now I'm at 104 trophies and level 5. And yes, I do feel kinda filthy about it. Of course cheating to get trophies isn't the right thing to do, but a trophy whore has to do what a trophy whore has to do. As y...

 
 
 

Instant Replay: The magic of retro games

Once upon a time you had to replay certain parts of a game again and again, because you had to. And you know what? Those times were filled with joy and laughter. What makes World 1-1 or World 1-2 in Super Mario Bros. such classic levels,...
