PS TV and a New Direction for Sony

The end of the year is fast approaching and Sony has released a fancy new gizmo to add the console market called a Playstation TV (PS TV) at a press event attended by yours truly. Not a full-fledged console in its own right, but more akin to a set-top box which can work in conjunction with a full Playstation 4 to stream content among other things. At its most basic, the PS TV would allow a user to...

After the fiasco that was my first encounter with the Pro Evolution Soccer sports game series at EB Expo I felt eager to give the game a second chance.

Just Dance 2015 Preview

I have never been one for physical coordination, but at this year’s EB expo I decided to throw caution to the wind and try my hand at the newest instalment of the Just Dance series.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Preview

I generally preface these articles by talking about my own experience (or lack thereof) with a given game or franchise. I am happy to say that I have had quite of experience with the Call of Duty franchise, and first encountered it when the games were still setting themselves during World War Two.

Fortress Sieging with an Elephant in Far Cry 4

From one psychopath to another, the Far Cry universe has gotten a lot more eclectic over the past few years. Now, self-proclaimed king Pagan Min (who is named after a real-life Burmese king, who reigned in the mid 1800’s) is primed to make Vaas look like chopped liver by comparison. Kyrat is his domain, and though it may be dangerous and teeming with trigger-happy Nepali warriors, the player...
