Actually, Helldivers Isn't One of Your Free PS Plus Games in March

Shot down

Contrary to popular, and largely logical, opinion, chaotic co-op shooter Helldivers won't actually be one of your free PlayStation Plus games next month. The downloadable title is slated for release on the 3rd and 4th of March in North America and Europe respectively, which understandably led to many believing that it would be available...

Destiny's 1.1.1 Update Is Unleashed Tonight

On the pulse

Destiny's 1.1.1 patch is finally launching tonight, Bungie has confirmed via Twitter. As such, Guardians may be kicked from their current games, or may experience some technical hiccups.

Dynasty Warriors Will Be Dabbling with a Free-to-Play Model Next Month

Penny for your thoughts

We admittedly didn't see this coming, but when we stop to think about it, we suppose it kind of makes sense.

Today's a pretty big day for game releases, but, as per usual, something's went a bit wrong on the PlayStation Store. Many users are reporting that they can't download or preload Dragon Ball XenoVerse and Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

Bloody Mordor

Oof, that's quite an impressive statistic isn't it? Since the game's launch, players have killed 5.65 billion Uruks in total, and according to the graphic that we've posted, that equates to about 76 kills per hour. Meanwhile, only 200 million uglies have been dominated, proving once and for all that there's nothing more satisfying...

There's a growing sentiment among the gaming press that sites like this one are an outdated concept. Apparently, people no longer want to read a considered critique of a game – they'd rather watch a playthrough on YouTube or Twitch, with some commentary from a popular personality. It's something that's constantly on this author's...
