Ori and the Blind Forest is powerful.

Not only does it hit all the same notes as some of your favorite animated films, but it draws upon the spirit of gaming’s past by building upon a genre that has been perfected time and time again. More →

PlayStation Mobile is dead

Everything has been coming up roses for the PlayStation brand over the past year, but it’s finally time for some bad news.

Sony announced on Wednesday that PlayStation Mobile will be shutting down for good before the end of the year. If you weren’t aware of PlayStation Mobile, it was Sony’s initiative to bring bite-sized games to both Android devices and the PS Vita, but it clearly never attracted a large enough audience to take off.

PS4 Suspend Mode

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

I’ve been up front about my feelings regarding Sony’s disappointing pace for PS4 updates. The Xbox One monthly update schedule is not only impressive, but it also gives gamers a reason to come back and check out new features even when game releases begin to slow down. PS4 owners, on the other hand, have to wait months for any significant updates.

There’s no sign of that changing any time soon, but Sony might be able to at least appease disappointed PS4 owners (like me) by adding a significant new feature in the next update. More →
