Beyond: Two Souls Review: A Tale of Two Halves

by Mike Martinon 10/30/2013
Beyond: Two Souls is like playing on a seesaw. When it’s up, you’re up. When it’s down, you’re down. At its peak, Beyond: TS has some of the most realistic 3D character modeling and animation ever and surprisingly enjoyable, unique movement based controls. At its lowest, it takes a scattershot approach to telling a story […]

PAX 2013: Mega Indie Roundup

by Mike Martinon 09/11/2013
My final recap of PAX 2013 covers independent gaming. Indie gaming is in what many feel is a Golden Age right now and that couldn’t be more evident than the amount of space devoted to indie games between the Indie MEGABOOTH and PAX 10. But it isn’t just limited to PC or mobile anymore. Consoles […]

PAX 2013: Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 Hands-on Impressions

by Mike Martinon 09/05/2013
Oh Sony, how long will you chase after a bona fide first-person shooter franchise to rival the competition? Killzone Shadow Fall does absolutely nothing for me. I want to be clear that this demo was multiplayer only, but if this is an indication of things to come, there are way better first-person shooter multiplayer games […]

by Mike Martinon 09/04/2013
Beyond: Two Souls gameplay video off-camera at PAX 2013. This was a long wait, but well worth it. Sony had a solid showing of PS3 games to counter a rather tame PS4 presence. This video features Jodie escaping the police and an encounter with police dogs.

Xbox One Versus PS4 – Don’t Crown the PS4 Yet

by Mike Martinon 06/27/2013
Sony could’ve held a five minute press conference at E3 last week and walked away the fan favorite. They’ve certainly taken the opening round in what is sure to be entertaining fight between the PS4 and Xbox One that will go the distance. Don’t crown the PS4 champions yet. Microsoft still has a lot of […]

E3 2013 Preview: What to Expect from Sony

by Mike Martinon 06/09/2013
Sony had better send Microsoft a thank you card for setting E3 up perfectly for the PlayStation 4. They couldn’t ask for better circumstances. The PS4 will make its official debut and I’m betting will have a fantastic showing of games. While Sony sat back and watched Microsoft take its lumps over the last couple […]
