Last Friday, the people who are making No Man’s Sky told me they’d been late to a meeting with Steven Spielberg. The legendary director waited, though, because he—like millions of other people across the world—was fiending to play No Man’s Sky. No pressure, right?
Oculus has a incredible product: a headset that can make you feel like you’re in another world. With its upcoming motion controllers, Oculus Touch, you can even reach out and grab virtual objects. But a competing headset, the HTC Vive, will let you walk around in VR too—and it’ll ship this year, before Oculus can make…
It wasn’t that the zombies were too realistic. I wasn’t afraid for my life or anything silly like that. No, when I tried The Walking Dead in VR, what I chiefly saw was this: the disturbing possibility that virtual reality might get written off as a fad.
I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It’s the twelfth time this week. I’ve gotten really used to Sony’s Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels. I pretty much just press a button to pull the display closer to my face, and boom—I’m in another world. I just wish there were more…
Yep, it’s creepy.
The PlayStation Vita is a handheld video game device manufactured by Sony Corporation. It was first released in Japan in December 2011. In 2015, some new games will be released for it.
The future is horse. Horse is future.
At its worst, E3 is like a restaurant where the chef makes you watch a video of the meal he intends to make and then asks you to come back next year when it’s ready. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, the chef will prepare a sample of the food and then let you watch him eat it, so you can observe how delicious it is.
It’s a conversation anybody who grew up in the 90s has had at least a dozen times: “Remember when MTV actually played music videos?” Yes, yes—we all do. Those times are over. Well, those times were over: Activision is about to change everything. It’s launching Guitar Hero TV: a “channel” where you can not only watch…
It’s time. Time to look past the nuances of the video game industry, the malleability of the artform and the subjectiveness of fans. Time to pass imperious verdict on what sucked today and what didn’t suck.
It’s time for the fourth and final press conference of the day: Sony. Time for The Last Guardian to make its return (as a free-to-play game for Sony phones).
When we made the jump from the last generation of home consoles to the current generation, there was one thing missing: backwards compatibility. For Xbox One owners, that’s about to change—Microsoft just announced that Xbox 360 games will be playable on the new console this holiday season.
From Gears of War to Halo 5, Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference will be full of people shooting aliens in various ways. We’ll also see some Tomb Raider, some Rare, and maybe some other solid surprises, too.
Microsoft recently said that game developers will be able to get a little more power out of the Xbox One to make their games more visually impressive if they choose to forgo some Kinect features. What's the actual trade-off?
When Sony announced its intentions to take Oculus Rift head-on, we were excited. The Rift (rightly) gets all of the attention and praise for its VR prowess, but a little competition would be good for the emerging technology. Today at E3 in Los Angeles we finally got to try Project Morpheus for ourselves. And man, it's…
Last night, Sony simulcast its E3 press conference to dozens of movie theaters across the United States, including the Regal Trussville Stadium 16, a Big Lots-facing megaplex just off of County Highway 10. That's where I watched it, along with a few dozen PlayStation faithful. Disclaimer: I am not a gamer.
Anyone who tries to play PC games on their TV inevitably runs into the same problem: What do you do with that damn keyboard and mouse? Roccat has a clever if not super elegant solution. Just put an entire desk-top on your lap.
Playstation Now, the service that will let you stream old Playstation games on your new Playstation (and pretty damn well) will be going into open beta on July 31st. It'll come to PS4 first, but later PS3, Vita, and select Sony smart TVs (Dual Shock 3 controller required).
Even while you can only see a few glimpses of the in-game engine of Star Wars Battlefront, the new game by Swedish studio DICE seems impossibly good. They say they are making the game that, as Star Wars fans, they always wanted to play. I think they may succeed.
E3 is over, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. An internal, seemingly official Microsoft PR document about the Xbox One just leaked out, but it's not full of horrible secrets, or general shadiness. Nope, it's actually full of good news that Microsoft just didn't bother to stress.
