CCP has announced it’s shutting down Dust 514, its FPS set in the EVE Online universe, on May 30. The company is currently developing a follow-up, but unlike Dust 514, it’ll be PC-only.
Another month, another batch of games for PlayStation Plus.
Sony’s finally announced its PlayStation Plus lineup for next month, and it’s coming with some pretty great games.
It’s frankly ridiculous how close some games are to finished when they are cancelled - or, conversely, how vaporous they can be when they’re first shown.
Sony’s announced its PlayStation Plus lineup for November, which includes The Walking Dead: Season Two and Magika 2 on PS4. PS3 owners are getting Mass Effect 2 and Beyond Good & Evil; it’s Dragon Fin Soup and Invizimals on Vita.
The single player portion of Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game has proven too much for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the studio announced today.
When Graham Reznick and Larry Fessenden landed the gig to write Until Dawn in 2011, it seemed easy enough: write some dialogue! Known for working on horror films like House of the Devil and The Innkeepers, the writers had taken on a bigger task than they thought—they were signing on to write two games in four years.
Until Dawn has been in development for a very long time. It was originally announced as a PS Move game for the PS3 back in 2012. I’ve been going through the old footage, which looks weird (and in one case, kinda creepy!) now.
Shovel Knight dev Yacht Club Games has announced the release date for their game’s upcoming expansion: September 17. Plague of Shadows will feature a new character, the Plague Knight, and will be released for all versions of Shovel Knight in a free update. Trailer for it is above, in case you missed it last month.
Nothing destroys a killing spree like spilling your Diet Mountain Dew all over your controller and making it all sticky. Or, maybe you’ve just used it too much and worn out the buttons and thumbsticks. Whatever the case, many gamepads are very user-repairable. Here’s how to open up your Xbox or PlayStation controller…
There are some great games coming your way next week.
Rocket League is the surprise hit of the summer, one that has plenty thinking “why didn’t anyone think of this before?” The developers of Rocket League did. They released Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars way back in 2008, but it went mostly ignored.
It’s called Vote to Play, and I’ve gotta admit, it’s pretty cool. There are some catches, of course.
I took our 5-year-old daughter to see Pixar’s Inside Out a week ago. I wish we had been able to play the new King’s Quest together instead. Like Inside Out, the new King’s Quest is close to a perfect piece of family entertainment. Unlike Inside Out, it would be far less likely to turn a thoughtful, introspective child…
Midway through God of War III, the buff and surly protagonist Kratos is scaling along the outside face of a building when he happens upon a man. He’s perched precariously next to a window, crying out for help. Saying nothing more than a grunt, Kratos bashes his head against the wall and pitches him off the ledge.
The PlayStation Network is down. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but it’s a holiday in the US and most online-related PlayStation functions are, well, not functioning. The PSN status page details the mess. It only mentions PS3 and PS4 not working but my Vita also can’t get online.
If you’re a PlayStation owner in Europe, you may have experienced some ridiculously slow downloads speeds the last few days. Can you imagine waiting 48 hours to download a game?! That’s a reality for some folks right now.
Fallout 4 is gonna let players bring PC mods over to consoles. Years ago, however, another game did it—with mixed results.
I really wish Hardline could deal with being a bad cop. The lack of rewards, unlocks or even acknowledgement for shooting people means it all takes place in a weird moral environment, where only good exists.
