The Black Glove slides onto PS4 with a real good park job

Look, it's an Ace Ventura reference is what I'm doing, okay? It makes sense. Don't hassle me. As much sense as every other "[game] [verbs] [onto]" headline. "Cagney and Lacey Golf tees off on Wii"? Step the heck off.   Anyways, previo...

Former BioShock devs doing BioShock-looking The Black Glove

The Black Glove. Huh, I'm into this weird thing. It's obviously reminiscent of BioShock, but the whole manipulating artists to change things sort of brings to mind this year's Ether One. Could turn out neat. Good job some putting tons...

Irrational introduces 1998 Mode to BioShock Infinite DLC

One of the biggest and most widely-held criticisms of BioShock Infinite had to do with all the violence. Many thought that it did a disservice to the narrative by being too over-the-top. Irrational aims to make amends of sorts with a n...
