PS Plus Extra May Get Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

One of the areas where Sony’s new subscription service completely fails to measure up to Game Pass is in major first-party exclusives. For years now, Microsoft has been offering access to their biggest, most exciting titles Day One through their service, and that’s absolutely a major draw to the service. While Sony is offering many…

Lasting Impressions from a Big Week for Games

June 6th to the 14th was a big week for games. In lieu of E3, fans of video games received a plethora of different gaming panels, events, and reveals via various streams, from the familiar Summer Game Fest event hosted by the familiar Geoff Keighley, to the wild and crazy antics of Devolver Digital, to…

Silly Scoundrels: Dr. Nefarious

Ratchet & Clank is a series known for its wacky weapons and gadgets, which is appropriately paired with some equally silly characters.  It wasn’t until the third game, Up Your Arsenal, however, that we were introduced to the perfect villain for such a ridiculous franchise, the outrageously goofy Dr. Nefarious, an organic turned robot who…

Spooptober: Dr. Reid’s Hammy Lines in Vampyr

Overall, Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr is a decently spooky game. To begin with, the entire game is steeped in an atmosphere of hopelessness bordering on fatalism thanks to the Spanish Flu epidemic. Once the supernatural elements come to light and we learn more about the true nature of the situation, everything takes on a much more…

Vampyr Looks Even Better (Spookier?) on PS5 and PS4 Pro Now

When it launched in 2018, Vampyr was already a decent-looking game. It wasn’t pushing the envelope of visuals, but it didn’t look bad either. If anything, its art style and visual fidelity actually served the overall feel of the game, that of hopelessness and melancholy in a completely exhausted and plague-ridden London. The game could…

God of War Ragnarok is Looking Good so Far

Last week, Sony put out this year’s PlayStation Showcase, giving fans a taste of what’s to come between now and the end of 2022. There were things for just about everyone to get psyched for, but the one and only thing that held any interest for me was the new teaser trailer for God of…

Cheeky Charlatans: Calypso

Even though I never played much Twisted Metal, the series’ main villain is nonetheless the epitome of cheekiness to me. Calypso has the power to literally anything, and he uses that power to put on crazy vehicular death death tournaments starring only the worst of the worst. These guys are all competing to have Calypso…

Sony Closing PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita on July 2nd

Well, it’s finally happening. PlayStation Store services are finally being brought to an end for PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3. It was only a matter of time, and indeed this is something practically every knew was coming eventually, but it’s still kind of amazing. Once this hits, there are going to be a lot…

Chasing Static Has Real Retro-Chic Going for it!

Making games in a retro style is most definitely nothing new. I mean, just how many 16-bit-ish games are released every year? How many of those have we seen since 2010? A ton. We’ve seen a ton! One would think that we’d be seeing a lot of games mimicking the 64-bit style too, but no….

Ratchet & Clank: Life of Pie Animated Short

Just a few days ago, completely without warning, a 23-minute Ratchet & Clank short aired on Crave, a streaming service in Canada.  Created by the same company who made the 2016 movie, Mainframe Studios, it follows Ratchet and Clank as they stop Dr. Nefarious’ newest scheme, which involves a gun called a Portalizer that can…
