Sony ends PlayStation 3 production in Japan

About half a year away from its 11th birthday, the PlayStation 3 will no longer be produced in Japan. The 500 GB model was the last remaining version, but now its production has ended as well. Doesn't seem that long ago that it released. Th...

Capcom is running a PSN flash sale

The PSN just loves to randomly hold flash sales, and Capcom sprung one on us this morning. It sprawls across the PS3, PS4 and Vita platforms, and deals with a number of Capcom games spread across the ages, from retro to modern remakes. High...

Review: Vanquish (PC)

Platinum might be a universally loved company, but not all of their games are. This is especially evident in the studio's era of licensed projects, with Korra operating as their most polarizing game to date, alongside of the contentiou...

Review: Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2

As the third iteration of the barely three-year-old Xrd, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is a tough sell if you're only halfway invested in the series. I mean, this is an aggressive stance for anyone, and it's clear that developer Arc System Works is...

This weekend's PlayStation Network flash sale is tempting

PlayStation Network flash sales are highly subjective, but I think this latest sale is particularly good in terms of the game selection and how steep the discounts are. It'll last until Monday morning. I'm tempted to go for XCOM 2 at $23.99...

May's PS Plus lineup is somewhat decent

Seeing as how Microsoft set the bar pretty low level for May's Games with Gold, I guess Sony didn't need to do much to top them. While you could argue that the games on offer for Xbox One and 360 are better than this list, at least there ar...

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below not only launched with one of the worst subtitles in gaming history, but some design flaws. Some stemmed directly from latent problems with Omega Force's approach to hack-and-sl...

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...

Square Enix is reprinting the original NieR in Europe

It doesn't hold up nearly as well mechanically, but if you dug the narrative themes of NieR: Automata, you'll probably dig the original NieR. The problem is that it's super hard to find at a standard retail price, as Square Enix stopped pri...

The original Bayonetta gets a stealth release today on Steam

Bayonetta was a fantastic action game. So fantastic that it's on quite a few "all time great action genre" lists. But at launch, it was a little problematic on consoles at times, especially on PS3. Along with the limited Wii U re-relea...

Here's when Persona 5's free and paid DLC hits

Not that you need any more reminders, but Tuesday is Persona 5 day in North America and Europe. That date, April 4, is easy enough to remember. But there's a whole mess more to keep track of in terms of DLC. For everyone's convenience, Atlu...

PS Plus' April 2017 line-up certainly includes games

I'm kind of at a loss for next month's PS Plus selection. I do appreciate that Sony still bothers with the idea of free games, but just one look at the selection would make anybody sad. Credit where it's due, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime...

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...
