From the graphical geniuses at Quantic Dream comes another interactive drama starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe. They’ve streamlined control, delivered uncanny valley levels of graphical detail, and are ready to tell a very personal, very paranormal story over a 15 year chronicle of Jodie Holmes’ life.
There’s just something about playing a game for multiple hours and then getting to see the real people’s faces behind the characters. Thankfully Youtube user SovietPlayer has put together an impressive video showing us just that — the real faces behind the voices of our favorite Mass Effect 3 characters…
While it rarely makes much of a difference what console you play a game on, there is always a question in the back of many people’s minds concerning which version is technically superior. Console parity is something that developers have sought after since multi-console releases first hit the mainstream. Back in the day it was quite obvious which console had the most potential…
Many things, both good and bad, have been set into motion this generation of consoles. One thing that we seem to be seeing more and more of is the re-release of games that should not need to be put out more than once. Now I’m not talking about HD remakes of classic PS2 games nor the digital sale of some of the older generation’s gems, as this is actually a good thing…
A while back I wrote an article giving my thoughts about the online pass and how developers are going about getting more money the wrong way.

There is a very oddly titled game series out there. It started out as “Mobile Light Force” and came out on PlayStation. It’s sequel, “Mobile Light Force 2″ came out for PS2. What is the game? Well you often hear, “Never judge a book by its cover,” but this is a Video Game. If you see 3 women wearing leather, shooting guns with robots flying around in a destroyed city, of course means its a game with a Blond Dude wearing a Jet-Pack, a Witch on a broomstick, and an old white bearded gay man in a foot peddle powered helicopter….
We all know by now that the new trend in gaming where a player has to use an online code found in the new copy of recent titles just to play with their friends on the net seems to be taking the industry by storm. The real question here however is whether or not this can be considered good for gaming as a whole.
Now before you look at the title and get all bent out of shape, we know, Arcades are still around, and that’s true, but they certainly aren’t what they use to be, especially in America. Case in point; Street Fighter 4 & MvsC3 – Arcade Cabinets for both are not even available for purchase in the United States. That info speaks volumes about where the industry has gone these past 10 years.

As everyone is well aware of by now, Sony’s PSN has been down for nearly an entire month. Since then many arguments and predictions have broken out throughout the world wide web pertaining to the situation. The question is, can Sony recover and how bad are the damages?
