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.

The Last of Us Remastered Review

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 →

Destiny Beta All Access

Everyone is now invited to play the Destiny beta

Everyone is now invited to play the Destiny beta

If you somehow missed out on all the code giveaways and couldn’t bring yourself to preorder the game, you’re in luck — the Destiny beta is now open to anyone with a active subscription on Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus as of 4pm PDT on Thursday. Bungie is basically conducting a stress test over the weekend by allowing everyone to join in the beta, so don’t be surprised if there are some issues on Friday night after everyone gets off work. The beta was already taken offline for an extended period of time earlier in the week for maintenance though, so hopefully the servers are prepared for a massive influx of Guardians. More →

Xbox One vs. PS4 Updates

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s early missteps to ensure that the PlayStation 4 would come out on top as the new console generation kicked off, but after being on the market for over half a year, one surprising disparity has begun to arise in the Xbox One’s favor. Despite a steady stream of updates on both consoles, the PS4 has gained very little in the way of new features while the Xbox One is loaded with functionality it didn’t have at launch. More →

Here’s why PS4 and PS3 fans should be very excited right now

Summer can be a rough time of year for gamers. The slow release schedule coupled with the beginning of a new console generation has made this summer especially difficult, but things are finally going to start picking back up in August, as evidenced by a rather strong lineup of games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Giveaway: 5 codes for the Destiny beta – Act fast, they won’t last long!

As of 1pm ET on July 17th, the public beta for Destiny is officially live on the PS3 and PS4. In order to get in, you need to preorder Destiny from a participating retailer, but we managed to get our hands on a few extra codes for those of you with quick fingers. Each code will need to be entered on Bungie.net, where you will be able to decide which platform you want to play on. You should then receive three codes for your chosen console, which you can with as you please. Keep in mind that although the beta is live on PlayStation consoles, Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners will have to wait until July 23rd to join in on the fun. More →

Video Game Console Prices Chart

One chart shows the wild fluctuation in game console prices over the years

One chart shows the wild fluctuation in game console prices over the years

When we try to justify the price we pay for a game console, we rarely think back past the last generation. At just $400, the PlayStation 4 is a steal compared to its $600 predecessor, yet Microsoft has received plenty of flak for launching the Xbox One at $500. What’s interesting is that when we step back just a few generations further, prices suddenly plummet to $300 or less. More →
