  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy DLC Trophy List Revealed
    Bald Bouncer
    Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will have a number of Trophies when it releases but there will be a few more to come. A Trophy list revealed by Exophase indicates two extra Trophies that are part of something called the Lost Treasures DLC.


    The Silver Trophy is The Crown Jewel where you must “seek and destroy” to obtain it. An Ancient Antiquity is the Gold Trophy and the description is “Do hard time”. What those could mean remains to be seen and neither...

  • Sony On Not Allowing Cross Platform Play
    Bald Bouncer
    Sony’s backwards policies when it comes to cross platform play have been revealed over this week, as first Minecraft, and then Rocket League – and both substantially major games- have been announced to be getting full cross platform play between their PC, Xbox, and Switch versions, but the PS4 being excluded.


    This happens because Sony won’t allow for cross platform play whatsoever, despite originally championing it, when it was clear Microsoft would never allow for it. In an...

  • You Can Play As Coco Through All Of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
    Bald Bouncer
    Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy looks to be a loving remaster of the original trilogy of the PlayStation platformers, modernizing them for a new age of gamers who never played them, and for those who did and yearn to return to the games again. But it looks like developers Vicarious Vision and publisher Activision have managed to pack in some surprises for us still.


    For instance, they have confirmed that you will be able to play through the entire trilogy, all three games, as Coco,...

  • Shenmue 3 Delayed to Second Half of 2018
    Bald Bouncer
    If it weren’t bad enough that Ys Net’s Shenmue 3 would be missing E3 2017, creator Yu Suzuki announced in a new video message that the game has been delayed to the second half of 2018. The long-awaited sequel was originally meant to release by December 2017. At least, that was the delivered date on its Kickstarter campaign.


    Suzuki said in the video that, “We unfortunately must delay its release. By utilizing new technologies we have been able to discover new possibilities and...

  • Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Releases On August 8
    Bald Bouncer
    It’s been a long time coming, but it’s almost here - Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the new action title from developers Ninja Theory, will be releasing this year, on August 8, for PC and PS4. The game, which was originally announced at Gamescom 2014, has been a very long wait- but at last, players will be able to play it.


    The game’s story takes from Celtic and Norse mythologies, but also adds a psychological story into the mix. It will be tackling some sensitive psychological...

  • Analyst Skeptical Of 2018 PS5 Release Claims
    Bald Bouncer
    We’ve heard some rumors claim that a PS5 is coming next year- the claim was made by an analyst, the very same who also successfully predicted the PS4 Slim’s debut alongside the PS4 Pro last year, which is why his word has been given any credence. But… doesn’t it make very little sense for Sony to launch a PS5 next year, two years after the PS4 Pro, five years after the PS4, and when the PS4 is doing so well for itself, too?


    According to Michael Goodman, who is the director of...

    This happens because Sony won’t allow for cross platform play whatsoever, despite originally championing it, when it was clear Microsoft would never allow for it. In an interview with Sony’s Jim Ryan, Eurogamer decided to ask just exactly what is up with this frankly inexplicable and anti consumer move.

    “We’ve got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base. Minecraft – the demographic playing that, you know as well as I do, it’s all ages but it’s also very young,” Ryan said. “We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe. Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it’s something we have to think about very carefully.”

    When Eurogamer pointed out that Nintendo, a company even more protective of its users, especially younger ones, and of its ‘curated ecosystems’, is on board with cross platform play, Ryan had no answer, saying only, “Yeah, that’s true. Everybody has to take their own decisions. We’ll do that. Like I say, we have no philosophical stance against cross-play at all.”

    So is there a chance that this might happen any time soon? According to Ryan, it does not seem to be on the table currently. “: I don’t think anything is ever a done deal. Anybody who is dogmatic in that manner is typically a fool. That said, to my knowledge, there is no live conversation ongoing at the moment.”

    So basically, don’t expect cross platform play with PS4 any time soon. It doesn’t seem like Sony is about to budge from their stance anytime soon. This is indefensible.
