That Sony Santa Monica tease was for Bound

Oh, Bound! (Psst. What's Bound?) A few days ago, Santa Monica Studio teased a game announcement with an obscured clip of someone dancing. I couldn't make any sense of it, but as some of you smartly guessed, it's a new thing, not another tak...

Pro tip: You can sprint in Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

I haven't started Everybody's Gone to the Rapture yet, but if I had, I'd probably be among the people wondering why such an exploration-heavy game doesn't let players sprint. It does, though -- hold down R2 for a few seconds to build up you...

I'm going into Everybody's Gone to the Rapture mostly blind

I've been following Everybody's Gone to the Rapture on and off for years. It's slotted away in my memory as "that exploration game from the Dear Esther people about the surprisingly serene end of the world as seen from an English countrysid...

What's your most memorable Journey moment?

Journey has been out on PlayStation 4 for a couple of days. No surprises here: it's stunning. I didn't intend to beat it again so soon, but the game's seamless online co-op dug its hooks into me. I couldn't let my anonymous buddy down by qu...

Yep, Kratos still yells a lot in the God of War III remaster

You didn't think Kratos would suddenly drop the whole shouting thing for his first appearance on PS4, did you? Asking him to do that would be like taking away his blades and giving him walkie talkies instead. Constant yelling is part of hi...

The Order: 1886 trailer photo

The Order: 1886 trailer shows people messing up their orders

The new Gamescom trailer for The Order: 1886 has a lot of things in it: Fancy PS4 graphics, Nikola Tesla's verbal handwringing, a release date of February 20th, 2015, and lots of shooting up Victorian monsters with big guns, but one thing ...

An all too brief trailer for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

The Chinese Room and Sony Santa Monica let out a quick trailer for their PlayStation 4 title Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and, oh, it's over already? Okay. But there's more to go on. It's June 1984 and, unfortunately, the world is comin...

The Order: 1886: Handsome men with guns & nice coats

I may have been expecting something else out of The Order: 1886, for whatever reason, but I'm settling in to its identity as another cinematic (maybe the most cinematic) cover-based third-person shooter. I think it's all the fancy dress an...

God of War: Ascension hitting PSN, no more DLC planned

God of War: Ascension is supposed to be really good, but boy does it feel forgotten this year (it just came out in March!). Sony Santa Monica hasn't forgotten it, though. The team has been pumping Ascension with a steady stream of multiplay...
