    Bald Bouncer
    From Software’s Bloodborne has received patch 1.03 and finally reduces the absurdly long loading times players have encountered since launch. According to the game’s Japanese blog, the loading times will be reduced by 5 to 15 seconds but this will vary depending on the circumstance. There will likely be tests done to see what those circumstances are so stay tuned for more information on the same.

    Other bugs that were fixed including a bug that caused some lifts and elevators...

  • Naughty Dog Takes Us Behind The Scenes On What Programming an Uncharted Game Is Like
    Bald Bouncer
    Naughty Dog is one of the world’s most respected development studios, and a large part of that has to do with the meticulous attention to technical and artistic detail that is pervasive in all of their games. In a brand new video, Naughty Dog talks more about what it is like programming a game under the studio’s development process, particularly in light of the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

    The video also acts as a sort of job advertisement, as Naughty Dog continues...

  • PlanetSide 2 PS4 Closed Beta Hands On Impressions
    Bald Bouncer

    Having heard about the Planetside 2 beta for a while now, I was very interested to see what kind of features and fun the closed beta of the PS4 version of the game had to offer. To some degree, it delivered exactly what I expected. That’s the bad part. The first thing I noticed when I booted up the game is that there doesn’t appear to be any real instructions as to how to do much of anything. Figuring out things like hitting L1 and R1 at the same time in order to launch a grenade...

  • PS4 Exclusive Shadow Of The Beast Receives Pre- Alpha Gameplay Footage
    Bald Bouncer
    Shadow of the Beast, a PS4 sidescroller that came onto the scene two years ago before completely disappearing, has recently came back into the public eye. Most recently however, we’ve been shown some pre-alpha gameplay of the game. Despite being in the early alpha stages of development, the game is visually very impressive, the gameplay however looks somewhat bland, despite packing a lot of visual flare. Here’s hoping this is improved closer to release.

    Given that the...

    thatgamecompany’s hit PlayStation 3 exclusive indie game, Journey, will be coming to PlayStation 4 this summer, when it will be released as part of a retail compilation package. The compilation package will include Journey, in addition to also having flOw and flower. The games will all run at 60 FPS, and in 1080p, but are otherwise unchanged and untouched.

  • Tower of Guns Review – Do Robots Cry When Their Loved Ones Die?
    Bald Bouncer
    When I first powered up Tower of Guns, I had to go back and look to see if Gearbox had made this particular game. The graphical look of the game, as well as the fact that a large part of the gameplay is based around really weird weapons made me think that if it wasn’t made by Gearbox, Tower of Guns was made by someone who had worked for the company or was trying out to be a part of the next Borderlands installment. That isn’t to say that Tower of Guns is really any kind of a ripoff of Borderlands...

  • 'Select' PS Vita apps hit the US PlayStation Store: Netflix, LiveTweet & more (video)

    Did you just brave the lines of a midnight launch party and snag yourself a PS Vita in the US? Good news ye early adopters, Sony's PlayStation.Blog.US has just announced that select free apps will be available as part of today's PlayStation Store update. Currently, you'll find Netflix, LiveTweet and Flickr, but there's still nary of trace of Facebook or Foursquare among the bunch (nor any official word on release dates for that matter). We gave each app a download and quick spin prior to them being officially listed without much in the way of hiccups -- however, Netflix does take its sweet time to start-up. Disappointingly, Vita's 20MB cap on 3G data is totally in effect on Netflix, as switching to our cellular connection denied us any access to the service. We're giving the apps some extended use to bring you our initial impressions shortly, but for now, you'll find more info at the source link below.

    Update: We've added a brief video hands-on just past the break to let you grab a taste of each app before downloading them for yourself.
