Did GTA 5 just receive a massive graphics downgrade?

That’s the question that YouTube user ElAnalistaDeBits is trying to answer after GTA 5 players started noticing that vehicle collisions didn’t look quite right following the latest updates to the game. In order to discover the truth, “the analyst of bits” reinstalled the vanilla version of the game and recorded the differences between it and the newest version. More →

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →

Video: GTA 5 looks way better on PC than it does on PS4 or PS3

One of the most anticipated PC games of 2015 already came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 two years ago. That’s right, I’m talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the perpetually delayed bestseller that’s finally coming to PC later this month. For some people, an upgrade to the PC version will be the second or third time they’ve bought the game, so why spend another $60?

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 →
