The game ties into popular PC release EVE Online, with its ground battles having an impact on the intergalactic adventure with which is...

Star Wars Battlefront, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and more

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game. We'd recommend an amazing title even if it had no pots, because the act of actually playing a release is more important than the system-wide meta-game that surrounds it. Having said that, Trophies are an essential part of the...

Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

Emigrating overseas

The humble beginnings of PlayStation are well documented: Ken Kutaragi believed that Sony should get into the console business so strongly that he began developing the firm's first format behind his employer's back.
