According to Sony, a PS5 is not Necessarily going to Happen

According to Sony, developing a PS5 is not something that is necessarily going to happen. According to Shuhei Yoshida, it’s not a “when”, but an “if”, when it comes to  an eventual release of a next generation console. Fans of console gaming may be asking where this indecision is coming from, but once you understand some of the general trends in the world of gaming then it begins to make sense. While all gaming has been growing ever since the 80’s when consoles first started being produced, consoles have been steadily losing market share, in terms of a percentage of the total gaming industry, to PC gaming and other smaller devices (smartphones and tablets). Shuhei’s indecision  was accompanied by an explanation which hints at this being part of the reason,...

The Fallout of Fallout 4

1280x720-cuU So it’s now been a few weeks since the release of Fallout 4, perhaps the most widely anticipated game of 2015, and it is due a review. Fallout 4, the continuation of one of the most popular game franchises, was looked forward to by the massive following the franchise has for a few years, and the opinions of most of the people who’ve tried it are in agreement; it’s good… it’s really good. Fallout 4 follows the same vein as previous titles; taking place following a massive nuclear war, 210 years to be exact. For those who’ve played the previous games, you should know that it takes place 10 years after the end of Fallout 3, but for those who haven’t you should know that Fallout 4 can still be...

No Man’s Sky – An Opportunity for an Adventure

no-mans-sky-gallery-04 No Man’s Sky is an, as of now, yet to be released game, but the initial look at what the game offers its users seems to offer people a lot of promise. Made by an independent gaming company, it has what is perhaps the most extensive world of any game ever made. The world of No Man’s Sky is a galaxy; you play an explorer going round to various planets, discovering (and naming) wildlife, resources and planets. Although the game is technically multiplayer, with the game universe being large enough that even if a planet is discovered every second, it’ll take 585 billion years to find them all, the chances of randomly encountering another player is very remote. Even intending to meet another player of the game will likely take...

Bundled Games: A Great Money Saving Option

games If you’ve had any experience with gaming, then you’ve likely experienced how expensive it can be. If you’re a bit savvy about it there are numerous ways to reduce the costs of your hobby though, and one of the best is to buy bundled game packages. You find that a lot of the smaller gaming developer companies will bundle a number of their older games together in a package occasionally. This means that you could get ten games which, when bought individually could cost you £50, could be bought for £20 or even cheaper occasionally. The only real downside to this money saving option is that it could include only a couple of games that you’re actually interested in, with the rest being a pointless purchase. In this situation you...
