New Video Game Releases for the Week of June 1st – 7th

New Game Releases

This week, the final week before the start of E3, sees quite a few games releasing, but none that have received a lot of hype. The good news is that there's something for everyone this week, and once again the PlayStation systems win the week (and of course Steam will see plenty of indie titles releasing as well). PS4 owners, be sure to check out War Thunder when it hits on Tuesday. For those that don't know, it is the latest free-to-play title to hit PS4 and it's an MMO historical flight combat game with the Ground Forces expansion that allows you to use tanks on the ground. PS4 owners with PS+ can also pick up Trine 2: The Complete Story and PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate free on Tuesday. Tuesday also sees the release of the demo for EA Sports UFC on PS4 and Xbox One. Here's the full list … [Read more...]

SHAREfactory & Other Features Come to PS4 Tomorrow in System Update v1.70

PS4

Tomorrow is a pretty big day for PS4 owners. No, there's not a big release title dropping, but the system is getting a new system update. Unlike most firmware updates, v1.70 is simply bringing security fixes, it's bringing some features that have been promised and gamers have been waiting on. The big one is SHAREfactory, a video-editing app that will allow gamers to create better gameplay videos. Here's how Sony described the app, followed by a video showing it in action. SHAREfactory: After you update your PS4 to v1.70, an icon to download our free SHAREfactory app will appear on your PS4 system’s home screen once it’s available. Once installed, SHAREfactory allows you to easily customize your gameplay videos with special effects, video commentary with picture-in-picture capability … [Read more...]

PlayStation Plus May Instant Game Collection Announced

PS Plus

As a gamer, particularly one who does most of his gaming on a PS3 at the moment, I absolutely love the PlayStation Plus service. At $50 a year, it's really unbeatable. Today, the Official PlayStation Blog has highlighted the six games that will be added to the Instant Game Collection in the month of May. PS4  Stick It To The Man PS3 Puppeteer Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 Skullgirls Encore PS Vita Surge Delux LIMBO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_fpJWW7HuE Of course all of these games will be made available for free for PS+ subscribers throughout the month of May. Smith's Sentiment: I've been wanting to get Puppeteer for awhile, and now I'll have it... thanks Sony! I have none of the games this month (aside from LIMBO for PS3), so that's always a plus as … [Read more...]

Review: Playstation 4

Here we are already a week after Sony has released it's fourth entry into the home console world.  Coming into the launch the console seemed to be poised to make a big splash, and had quite a bit of momentum behind it.  It was clear that Sony had taken note of the misfires that may have led it's PS3 to a slower start than desired and wanted to not only build on the great success the PS3 had achieved in recent years; but also prove themselves to the undisputed king of entertainment.  The sales numbers alone show that they were very successful in winning over a very large crowd of people and it's dedicated fanbase seemed poise to continue growing.  What is it that you are getting with your PS4 though? … [Read more...]

Review: Knack

I was admittedly a bit late to the Knack party prior to launch.  I had heard the name and knew it was an exclusive launch title coming out for the Playstation 4 and that was more or less the extent of my knowledge.  It wasn't until our own Gary Smith put some information in our forums that I started to become somewhat interested in the title.  From there the more and more I researched it seemed the more I would become excited for the game.  Fast forward to now and not only have I had time to sit and digest the game but I've had time to complete a play through.  So the question:  does it hold up? … [Read more...]

Sony & Amazon Team Up To Bring Digital PSN Store to Amazon

Some truly wonderful news today if you're a PlayStation gamer who wants to go digital; Sony and Amazon have partnered up to bring the PlayStation Network Digital Store to Amazon.com. As of today, you can purchase digital codes for PS3 and PS Vita games and DLC. PS4 games will become available when the system launches. This means you won't need to use your credit card in the PlayStation Store, or buy PSN cards, to get digital content. And I have to say that that is pretty awesome. So far, the digital codes are priced exactly the same as the physical copies sold by Amazon. The selection of games available now isn't that big, but at least the prices in some cases are cheaper than they are on the PlayStation Store. Hopefully this means that Amazon will be able to keep their digital … [Read more...]

Why I’m Postponing Purchasing A Next Gen Console

The next generation of video game consoles is just a couple of weeks away now, and many are just terribly excited about it. And why wouldn’t you be, if you’re a console gamer anyway? New hardware that is capable of better graphics and more things on screen, new features, and all sorts of things that supposedly will make gaming better. So, why am I giving the next gen a launch day pass? Truth be told, I was initially quite excited about the release of the PS4. I ripped the Xbox One to shreds of course, but then they went and did their 180 and that apparently made everything better. But now, just a week and a half away from the release of PS4, I have canceled my pre-order. I had pre-ordered the PS4 right after E3 when it was made available on Amazon. I had the “Launch Edition,” the … [Read more...]
