Master Chief Motorcycle Helmet Can Be Yours In 2015

We’re pretty sure that the idea of using Master Chief’s helmet from the Halo franchise as a motorcycle is definitely not new, but the good news is that if you wanted to wear it and actually use it on the road without being pulled over, you will be able to do so come 2015. Back in November 2013, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) announced a partnership with 343 Industries […]


PS4 Users Get 1.72 Firmware Update

The Sony PS4 might have lost out to the Xbox One in the U.S. based on the number of “Likes” on Facebook, which is not exactly the most empirical and scientific method to determine the widespread popularity of a particular product, but I am quite sure that Sony executives are not sweating over that report since hard sales figures would tell a better story in the long run. Just in […]

I am quite sure that many of us have heard of Oculus VR before, which so happens to be the company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, not to mention that Oculus VR is in the process of being acquired by the folks over at Facebook for a cool $2 billion. Oculus VR has big plans for the future, where among them include building an MMO with a target […]

Mario Kart 8 Review

What do you get when you cross a turtle shell with a banana? If you happen to know, then odds are you have some seriously awkward life experiences, or you haven’t given Nintendo’s iconic racing series a chance yet. If not, then the eighth go around of Mario Kart wouldn’t be a terrible place to start. The ability to save and upload replays, a touch of anti-gravity, and a greater […]

Cira Centre Skyscraper Shows Off Tetris

Tetris, a 30 year old game, has been played on the surface of buildings in the past, but this time around, it seems that a new Guinness World Record is set as Tetris is played on both north and south sides of Brandywine Realty Trust’s Cira Centre skyscraper, turning it into the largest architectural videogame display in the world.


Bungie Believes Destiny Will Be A Great Experience From The Get-Go

As much as developers would love for games to be launched without a hitch, it can be incredibly difficult. This is because unlike beta tests or internal tests, there are so many more players who are entering into the game, executing commands, chatting, and etc. that could lead to errors which might not have been able to be simulated. We’ve seen this happen to games like Diablo 3, SimCity, and […]


Ubisoft Aiming For Simultaneous Assassin’s Creed Unity Platform Release

Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released on next-gen consoles like the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One, along with the PC. Now if you were hoping that Ubisoft will be able to release the game for the PC alongside its console release, you might be pleased to learn that is exactly what Ubisoft is aiming for this year. Speaking to RPS, Ubisoft’s producer Lesley Phord-Toy mentioned […]


Blizzard Announces XP Changes To Heroes Of The Storm

While MOBA games certainly requires a lot of teamwork and the understanding of the mechanics in the game, it can also boil down to the simple fact that one team has heroes who are higher level than another team’s heroes. This becomes more apparent when heroes unlock their ultimate abilities at a certain level, which gives them a slight edge of the enemy. Hoping to balance levels and different player […]


Battlefield Hardline Developer Promises “Great Stability” At Launch

When EA launched Battlefield 4 last year, it was met with many complaints due the game being buggy. In fact it was so bad to the point where lawsuits were actually being filed. So with Battlefield Hardline expected to be released later this year, has EA learnt from their mistakes? Well it seems that Hardline’s developer, Visceral Entertainment, certainly has. Speaking in an interview with PSLifestyle, the company’s lead multiplayer […]


Assassin’s Creed Unity Sweepstakes Could Win You A Trip To Paris

In order to help guarantee and possibly rack up the sales figures, developers and publishers have tried to make it as attractive as possible to pre-order a game. Of course gamers have no idea what they’re getting into, save for trailers and information released by the developers, so safe to say sometimes it can be a gamble. Now if you liked what you saw with Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity, […]


Miyamoto Open To The Idea Of Unifying Development Environments

Wouldn’t it be highly convenient if developers developed a single game that can be run across multiple platforms? Well that’s what Sony tried to do with the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita, but could that be something Nintendo could be considering for the future as well? While it’s hardly a confirmation that the company is doing something about it, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto did state that he could imagine Nintendo […]


Valve’s Steam Machines Could “Someday” Be Competition For Sony

When it comes to gaming in the living room, consoles are currently dominating because that’s usually how it has been all this while. PC gaming, on the other hand, was more or less limited to your room which is not a bad thing, but this is something Valve is hoping to change with its Steam Machines and SteamOS. For those unfamiliar, Steam Machines is Valve’s answer to the console. Instead […]
