Nintendo dominate the hand-held market. While they technically do fight Microsoft and Sony, and battle against mobile gaming, they’re currently the only option for a proper hand-held console. That reign of power, though, is finally being challenged, not by Microsoft or a returning Sony but rather by Valve, the dominant force in PC gaming. A company with plenty of resources to throw at any project it fancies, stepping into the market and trying to expand PC gaming in a whole new way. Valve are aiming to do something dramatic, something big and something very exciting. Can it succeed?
The 14th episode of the official Wolf’s Gaming Podcast is up, and within it my absurdly silky, sultry, sexy voice goes through a variety of subjects, starting off with some movie chat. Werewolves Within is a new horror-comedy based on Ubisoft’s VR game of the same name which in turn is based on an actual physical game involving a bunch of people sitting in a room and arguing about why one is actually a savage werewolf with a (un)healthy appetite.
A developer named Blue Box Game Studio is working on some sort of horror game that will be a PS5 exclusive. Unless you were paying attention you probably missed this announcement back in April. Even if you did catch the blog post and short reveal trailer you might not have thought much about it. But over the last week or two this little indie game has begun making waves. On Friday an app will be released for that will house an interactive reveal trailer. The game is currently codenamed Abandoned and the developer has hinted at the name starting with an S and ending with an L. And now the Internet has put on its tinfoil hats and begun putting together one hell of a theory: Abandoned is really a new Silent Hill game, and legendary troll Hideo Kojima is behind it all. So let’s delve into this murky and complex theory, shall we? Oh, and maybe grab some red string, a pot of coffee, a marker and a big, open space because this is going to get weird.
I’m back with the 11th episode of the shoddy Wolf’s Gaming Podcast and as you might expect this episode is all about E3 and the many games revealed there. As such, it’s the longest episode to date, clocking in at just a little under 50-minutes, which is probably the absolute limit of how long someone can listen to my voice without jumping in front of a moving truck.
I wanted to update you on the lack of content and what’s going on. Basically, I’m taking a short break, just until this weekend (hopefully.)
Welcome back to another Weekend Whammy, my fair folk! This week I’ll be talking about Game Pass being the perfect multiplayer destination, Sony shutting down the PS3, PSP and Vita stores, new research on whether loot boxes constitute gambling and much more
Just a quick update on why there hasn’t been a written version of my previous Weekend Whammy. The plan was to transcribe my audio (with proper editing to make it work in written form) and post it up as a regular Weekend Whammy. Had I been smart I would have used some speech-to-text software while I was recording the episode to gave me a basic transcript to work from, but obviously I’m dumber than a brick with brain-damage.
Ah, the power of free stuff. There have been some pretty amazing months on both PSN and Xbox Live Gold when it comes to freebies, all acting as a nice little bonus. But February’s line-up of free titles on PSN might be one of the strongest we’ve gotten thanks to Sony announcing a trio of kick-ass games. These will be going up on the 2nd of February, so remember to add them to your download queue even if you don’t intend on playing them just yet, that way they’ll be added to your library and you can download them whenever you want.
Christmas is nearly a wrap here in the UK, and I wanted to take a minute to wish all of you a wicked awesome Christmas. It has been a tough year, and I know that many of you amazing people out there might not have been able to […]
Things are going from bad to worse for CD Projekt RED (CDPR) and the highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, which for many was the biggest and most exciting launch of the year. Thanks to their success with The Witcher 3, CDPR were riding high atop a wave of love and were valued at around $8-billion, making them worth more than even Ubisoft. They were the darlings of the game industry, and somehow in less than a week they’ve burned it all to the ground.
