CounterSpy review: Your mission, should you choose to accept it

I’ve never been particularly good at stealth games. Either I don’t have the patience or I’m just not savvy enough to pick up on important cues from the bad guys, but my experiences have been repeatedly soured by my lack of skill. Fortunately, CounterSpy is a very different kind of stealth game, but all of the best aspects from the genre have been carried over. It’s a thoughtful, fast-paced game with impeccable style and enough collectables to keep you coming back for more even after you’ve saved the world once or twice. More →

Sony PS4 Sales 10 Million

Sony exec admits he doesn’t understand why the PS4 is so popular

Sony exec admits he doesn’t understand why the PS4 is so popular

It’s safe to say that even Sony is surprised by how popular the PlayStation 4 has been. In an interview with Eurogamer, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida says that while the company is obviously pleased with how many consoles it’s sold so far, it’s a little apprehensive about it because it really has no idea why it’s this popular.

Watch over 30 minutes of gorgeous gameplay from The Witcher 3, the most anticipated RPG of 2015

We have plenty of great games to look forward to this fall, from console exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and Driveclub to huge third-party releases in the Call of Duty, Battlefield and Assassin’s Creed franchises, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about 2015. And one 2015 release that quickly shot to the top of our most anticipated list after E3 this year was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. More →

PS4 continued to crush the Xbox One in July

For seven consecutive months now, the PlayStation 4 has dominated the sales charts. Sony announced at Gamescom this week that PS4 sales have surpassed 10 million units sold through to consumers, another huge milestone for the nine-month-old console and an indication that sales won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Even with a fairly limited selection of games, PS4 also took the top spot in software, accounting for more than half of all new generation game sales with The Last of Us Remastered coming out on top.

Hohokum Review

Hohokum review: Eye for an eye

Hohokum review: Eye for an eye

I can’t figure out how best to describe Hohokum. Interactive scenery would do developer Honeyslug an injustice. Movable soundscapes might be more accurate. Whatever Hohokum is, it’s what it isn’t that makes it so special. It’s not a puzzle game, it’s not an adventure game and it’s not a platformer, but it has elements of all three. Hohokum is the latest in a lineage of downloadable PlayStation exclusives that redefine gaming in small but meaningful ways. More →

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept review: The thinking man’s horde mode

I was disappointed in Killzone Shadow Fall. There’s no two ways about it — the PS4 launch title felt unfinished, unbalanced and yet somehow still left me wanting more. If it had been a more complete package, some of its flaws might have been forgivable, which is why the new Intercept co-op DLC is right up my alley. More →

PS4 Vs. Xbox One EA

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

When EA announced its new EA Access subscription program for the Xbox One, we were surprised because it sounds like a pretty good deal. Given EA’s past antics, we actually expected the program involved asking gamers to pay an extra $5 per month just for the privilege of playing games on Xbox Live that they’d already purchased. But no — EA Access actually will give you the ability to play games like Madden NFL 15, Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 even if you’ve never bought the games themselves for just $5 per month or $30 for a full year subscription.

Review: The Last of Us Remastered

Trying to fix what isn’t broken is typically a fool’s errand. When The Last of Us launched last year to widespread acclaim, many gamers expressed dismay that the series couldn’t have been ported to the next generation, but Naughty Dog was up to the challenge and managed to turn around an upgraded version of the game in just over a year. The Last of Us Remastered isn’t the most ambitious re-release, but it’s still an indispensable part of any PS4 owner’s library, especially those who missed it the first time around. More →
