Gollum is Getting His Own Game?

It’s been several years now since we’ve seen anything of note from the the Lord of the Rings franchise, and I honestly was okay with that. I don’t mean to say that I disliked seeing new Lord of the Rings/Hobbit-themed movies and games over the years. I enjoyed the Hobbit movies for what they were…

Sony State of Play Returns August 6th

Sony’s State of Play is coming back later this week, and it sounds like Sony is looking to give an answer to Microsoft’s recent Xbox Games Showcase. The focus of the show will be entirely on third-party games coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR over the next few months. There will be no new…

I Am the Future of Gaming?

I couldn’t help but chuckle a little bit after reading Phil Spencer’s recent and well-meaning Xbox Wire post, “You Are the Future of Gaming.” Microsoft wants to the Xbox Series X to do well, obviously, and Mr. Spencer is an awesome salesman.

Game Prices Are Going Up, But Should They?

Last week, Sony released an…unusual video detailing the PlayStation 5’s technical specifications. And by “unusual,” I mean plain ol’ odd and even a little unsettling, what with Lead System Architect Mark Cerny standing in a “theater” next to a stilted Powerpoint presentation. And by “detailed,” I mean d-e-t-a-i-l-e-d. The announcement dove straight into the depths…

The PS5 and Gaming without Boundaries (Maybe)

Earlier this week, Sony revealed a bit of footage showing the new Spider-Man game running buttery smooth on its next-gen console (deemed the PS5, for now) versus the same game’s performance, with load screens, on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Further, at its recent investor relations conference (IR Day 2019), Sony revealed more details about its…
