PS5 Looks Good, But Will Probably Be All Kinds of Expensive

So Sony has finally revealed the PlayStation 5, and, all router jokes aside, I think it’s looking pretty good. It think it looks cool, but more importantly it looks like it’s going to have a healthy selection of games coming to it in the first few months post-launch. Now the only thing left that we…

Persona 5 Royal: It’s Good to be Back!

Ever since I first gave it a try back in 2017 I’ve been a pretty big fan of Persona 5. I love it’s stylish presentation, its rockin’ soundtrack and thoughtful gameplay. The story has some decent twists and turns to, but the real stars of the show are definitely the characters. I genuinely enjoyed my…

Sony Announces New Play At Home Initiative

As many of us are in the midst of dealing with life-changing circumstances thanks to COVID-19, not the least of which may include furloughs and lay-offs, Sony, it seems, is doing its part to give back a little. Yesterday Sony released on its blog information about a new venture called Play At Home. And its…

A Few Thoughts on the PlayStation 5

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…

Dreams Has Gone Gold

Free-form game-making uh…game has gone gold! This means that the game is now feature complete and mostly polished. All the developers have to do now is chase down minor bugs and work on further optimizations for the game’s launch on February 14th!

DualShock 4 Gets a New Button!

It’s kind of weird seeing this since the idea of official controller attachments is still kind new to me, but really this has been a long time coming. There’s been a demand for more “professionally-oriented” controllers for some time now, so it’s odd that it’s taken Sony this long to bring a product to market….

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…

Challenge Mode: Fighting Dark Yabu in Vexx

A good deal of the time, I’m not a big fan of boss fights.  Many of them are long and tedious and generally not a whole lot of fun.  Other times, they are brutally difficult, and when these battles are of the final-boss variety, it’s only my obsessive desire to finish everything I start that…

PSN Users Can Finally Change Names

Well, they did it; they finally did it.  After years and years of PlayStation users requesting the ability to change their online ID, Sony has finally figured out how to make it possible on PSN. Why it took them almost two console generations and 13 years to implement is still anybody’s guess, but the feature…
