Korra, blimey

There’s set to be a spot of animal magic on the PlayStation Store this week, as zany side-scroller Escape Goat 2 bleats aside the competition, and trots onto Sony’s next-gen system.

Sorry Ubisoft, But This Is the Worst Unboxing Ever

Taking the unboxing out of unboxing

Ubisoft, when you label your video as an unboxing, please understand that it comes with a set of standards attached.

DriveClub Developer to Roll Out New Game Update to Improve Online Issues
