  1. Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Shows Us True Horror—and It’s 20 Years Old

    This Claire sandwich needs more kick.

    Revelations is supposed to bridge the two phases in Resident Evil’s history: the “classic” survival-horror style, with long mansion hallways and tricky puzzles, and the newer breed, where zombies move fast and bioengineered monsters grow gigantic pus sacs from every orifice. But all Resident Evil: Revelations 2 does is make me wish we could turn back the clock 20 years—that the good old days are still possible to relive. They’re not.

  2. Things We Saw Today: A Condensed, 8-Bit Version of The Walking Dead

    It's dangerous to go alone.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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."

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. PlayStation 4 Is on Track to Make More Money Than the PS2, Time to Repurpose Your “It Prints Money” Wii GIFs

    Last console generation is starting to just feel like a weird dream—involving lots of waggle.

    You'll remember the PlayStation 2 as the best selling video game console of all time. For that very reason, claiming that the PS4 will exceed its profits would be pretty strong words, and Kaz Hirai, Sony's President and CEO, said just that in a recent briefing.

  17. Transistor Is The Game With The Red-Headed, Sword-Wielding Female Protagonist You’ve Been Waiting For

    I want to see as many Red cosplayers as possible this year, so get on it.

    The follow-up to Supergiant Games’ 2011 indie smash Bastion, Transistor is a sci-fi action RPG that looks just as lovely as its predecessor.You play as Red, a young singer whose voice is stolen by The Process, a baddie she pursues relentlessly with her intelligent sword, Transistor.

  19. PS4 Owners, You’re About to Get Video Editing Capabilities in an Update

    Now you can cut out all the times you die and look like a superstar.

    The PlayStation 4 is crushing it in terms of sales, but the Xbox One still has some things the PS4 doesn't. At least, it does for now. While Xbox One owners can brag that they can edit their captured gameplay footage on the system itself and their PS4 counterparts can't, they won't be able to for much longer.
