  • Blog Post: 15 Years With The PlayStation 2

    The Beginning Of An Unprecedented Era Despite the monumental success of the PlayStation 2, it wasn't always guaranteed.

  • Blog Post: Keeping Promises: Seven Things That Need To Happen In 2015

    It's tough to make a promise when it comes to video game development. So many things can happen when it comes to a title or feature being completed, to say nothing of nailing a release date. That being said, there have been some...assurances, shall we say...that companies have made about their games... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 - LittleBigPlanet 3

    Picking a game to champion for our Top 50 Challenge was easy; I knew it had to be Sumo Digital's charming platformer LittleBigPlanet 3. As a long time fan of the LittleBigPlanet series, I was worried when it was announced that Sumo Digital was taking over the series for Media Molecule. Thankfully... More
  • Blog Post: Neon Icon: The Art Behind Infamous' Third Lead

    The most interesting character in Infamous: Second Son wasn't Delsin Rowe (the protagonist), or Brooke Augustine (the antagonist), but rather Fetch, a quest giver/power conduit who stole the spotlight with her soulful story and down-to-earth demeanor. She rightfully became the lead in Infamous: First... More
  • Blog Post: Bonus Replay – Crash Team Racing

    It is a bright, new day for Replay.

The first Replay of the new regime... More

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Gran Turismo 6

    Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 6 is pretty similar to the other titles in the series, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its differences. We take the game for a ride in this installment of Test Chamber. Whether you're a newbie or a series vet, you'll want to check out this Test... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

    I love to play platformers, but it's fair to say many series have shifted from their old-school base. Even as a Ratchet and Clank fan, I've seen a series that once was only about adventuring tap into new ventures like tower defense, which has been a bit disappointing for me. So when Matt Helgeson...

  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

    Learn more about the Game Informer Fight For the Top 50 Challenge 2013 We all have our favorite genres.

  • Blog Post: How To Make One of Tearaway's Papercraft Models

    Media Molecule's Tearaway is one of the year's best games, and it's also got the year's coolest unlockables: real life papercraft models that you can print out and make in real life. Though I'm not particularly crafty, I decided to give it a go. As you play Tearaway, you'll unlock... More

  • Blog Post: Five Franchises Sony Should Bring Back As Downloadable Games

    As times and tastes change, some franchises fall out of favor – or become too niche to be economically feasible. Thankfully, digital distribution has given new life to games and genres that just wouldn't make sense at a $60 price. With Sony placing a big emphasis on both digital distribution... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber - Beyond: Two Souls

    David Cage's latest strange tale has been divisive, pleasing some and alienating others. In this Test Chamber, we give you a taste of a episode early in the game which depicts a teenage party gone horribly awry.

  • Blog Post: Moments: Seeing God of War For the First Time

    I'm sure there were other games besides God of War shown at Sony's Santa Monica Gamer's Day in 2004. I should know; I was there. But I couldn't tell you if I tried. That was the day that Dave Jaffe unleashed Kratos on the world, and I still remember the impact it had on me. "Gamer's... More

  • Blog Post: Why Naughty Dog Can't Make A Sequel To The Last Of Us

    I beat The Last of Us a couple weeks ago, but that adventure is still ringing through my head like a brass bell. The game easily sits on my list of the five greatest games from this generation, and yet, I don't think I want to see a sequel. (The following is spoiler free. But if you want The Last... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Save The Last Guardian And Put It On The PlayStation 4

    Team Ico's The Last Guardian recently delivered a double dose of disappointment to gamers – first when it did not appear at E3 as rumored, and later when Sony's Jack Tretton said the game was on hiatus . There have been rumors that the oft-delayed game is being moved to the PlayStation... More
