  1. Review: PS4′s The Order: 1886 Has Heart But Not Enough Courage

    Not quite supernatural mayhem wrapped in a David Cage shell.

    I enjoyed The Order: 1886. It’s a fantastic portrayal of London with some of the most realistic-looking characters and details I’ve ever seen in a game. It makes the most of the PlayStation 4’s hardware. But I’m not sure what kind of game it wants to be—cinematic narrative experience on the level of David Cage (Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls) or next-generation action-shooter. In trying to be both, it fails at both, but it does hit a sweet spot in between.

  2. How Adventure Classic Grim Fandango Holds Up 16 Years Later

    All that critical acclaim is intimidating.

    Re-releasing games tends to have little value outside of convenience. Sure, I could have hunted down Kingdom Hearts II and Birth by Sleep and paid for them individually. But that could have been more expensive than opting for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix in a single package. I wouldn’t be able to play them on a more recent system, and I wouldn’t own them on one disc. Grim Fandango is a big exception.

  4. Xbox Live and PlayStation Network Attacks, Outages Continue to Ruin Christmas

    Meanwhile, my Nintendo 64 works just fine. Just saying.

    Christmas is canceled. Well, if you got an Xbox or PlayStation console, it might feel that way. Both systems' online gaming networks are still experiencing trouble today after they were downed yesterday by "hackers."

  5. Review: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Raids Barren Old Tombs

    It’s good to see Lara Croft raiding classic tombs again. After last year’s Tomb Raider reboot focused so heavily on combating islanders, I longed for another adventure where she’d rattle off facts about mythological gods and beasts, get a witty jab in at her archaeological rivals, and execute a perfect somersault—all before finishing her sentence. In Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, she does it without breaking a sweat. As it should be.

  7. Sony Uses the Ol’ “Sexy Lady Doctor” Trope to Sell PS Vita in Mind-Numbingly Sexist Ad

    Women are too hard to animate market to.

    Quelle surprise! The company that brought us 2012's PS VITA "Touch Both Sides to Play" ad campaign featuring a four-breasted-lady has once again managed to insult both women and its teen boy target demographic in one sadly predictable swoop.

  8. Walmart Isn’t Happy About That PS4 Scam, So They Idiot-Proofed Their Price Match Policy

    Roll back those prices policies.

    Yes, some people were really picking up $90 PlayStation 4s using a bogus 3rd party Amazon listing over the past few days. Of course, price matching is always up to store management, and they should've shut this down in the first place. But Walmart is no longer playing it fast and loose with employees' common sense.

  9. Walmart’s Amazon Price Matching Backfires Almost Instantly With $90 PS4 Scam

    Well that escalated quickly.

    Walmart has long had an "Ad Match" program to price-match other stores, but just days ago they began officially matching prices at select online retailers, including Amazon. So, of course, the Internet had to go and ruin everything by setting up some official-looking PS4 sale pages with incredibly low prices and getting them price-matched.
