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…

Rocket League Has Crossplay on PS4 Now

After an excessively long period of insisting that it couldn’t be done, Sony has finally opened up their previously walled garden to crossplay with the other riff-raff out there. Given how adamant Sony was in their stance, I was certain the day would never come, but here we are. It’s 2019 and we can finally…

Knights of the Round is Overpowered (and I’m Glad)

In the near past, I had been working through my second playthrough of the amazing Final Fantasy VII, a PS1 classic that surely needs no introduction.  While I adore this game and am happy to say it is one of the few games I went into with high expectations, and was not disappointed, I gotta…

Fun with FF7’s Chocobo Breeding

When I play video games, I usually enjoy focusing on the main game first and foremost.  Anything outside that, more often than not, feels like a waste of my time.  And yet, when I give said diversions a chance, they often turn out to be much more fun than I would have expected.  A recent…

Borderlands 2 Is Coming to PSVR

Vault Hunters rejoice! Borderlands 2 is bringing its signature looting and shooting experience to PSVR!  This new version features (almost) everything fans loved about the original, plus a few extras to make the VR  experience flow just a bit more smoothly.
