Lots of folks are upset about incoming new hardware from Microsoft and Sony (and maybe even the Nintendo NX, to some extent) because it somehow invalidates their earlier purchases. Me, I feel like the more powerful consoles will be a stopga...   read

Sony loses another legal battle, this time over PS3 Linux dispute

I'm pretty certain that the PS3 was my least favorite PlayStation generation. Like any console cycle it had a lot of classics, sure, but it didn't measure up to the PS2, and I'm already enjoying my PS4 a bit more. I might need to revisit th...   read

Kojima says Death Stranding trailer is 'representative' of the game

Hideo Kojima's "I'm back" has usurped Poltergeist's "they're here" in my mind as far as ominous announcements of presence so it's safe to say that his new PC/PS4 game Death Stranding is eating through most of the meager teraflops in my brai...   read

 
 
Horizon Zero Dawn preview

E3 2016
E3 has been winding down in recent years, especially with big-name publishers like EA holding their own events off the show floor, and Nintendo literally only showing Zelda at the conference in 2016. The rise of controll...   read

BOUND trailer was quietly shown before Sony's conference

Although it was revealed last December, Bound still looks pretty awesome. Sony seems to think so too, because even though it wasn't part of the main E3 conference, it still got a spotlight anyway during E3 with a new trailer. The game ...   read

Sony E3

Here They Lie trailer is creepy, mostly monochrome, VR-compatible

There were a lot of trailers at this year's Sony E3 presser (and not much besides trailers, oddly enough), but the one they put up for Here They Lie was one of the ones that stood out for me. Not much is known about the game besides th...   read
