You know why I have mixed feelings about Final Fantasy XIII? It’s not just the long corridor I recall running along in for hours. Or my dark secret that I don’t despise Hope. No. It’s that Final Fantasy XIII destroyed my 80 GB PS3. Person of Interest’s season 5 premiere just had to remind me about my long-dead console.
It’s now standard practice to release a game at retail and digitally at the same time, but that wasn’t the case in 2007. Warhawk was a trendsetter, but it was a bumpy road.
It’s a quality selection of games, but they’re not exactly heavy hitters.
Here’s what you’re getting if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.
If you’ve been playing video games for any amount of time, odds are pretty high you have at least one console in your entertainment center doing nothing, and that sucks. Don’t let your old friend sit there and collect a gross film of dust and grime, give it a new life—or find someone who will. Here’s how.
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.
