Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6.

EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

Another Tripwire published title revealed as an EGS timed-exclusive.

  • PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    The PlayStation Store, at least the web browser version of it, now allows you to make wishlists. You can quickly add a game or other media piece to your wishlist by clicking on a heart icon next to the price listing. It is then added to your wishlist that only you and your friends, or you alone, can see.


    Could this be a step on the road to gifting through the PlayStation Store? It seems entirely plausible, especially how the privacy settings are defaulted to allowing your friends to view your wishlist items....

  • Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Allegedly, some Harmonix employees are leaving 5-star reviews on Amazon for Rock Band 4. Reddit, as they tend to be, were on the case.
    Harmonix employees seem to have taken to Amazon to post their own favorable reviews of the game. At first I thought it was a rogue employee or two but then I dug around for about a half hour and found 7 of them and so it appears to be more of an initiative. I'm sure there's more than that.


    Some of the names in the reviews do match the names of employees that are at Harmonix. These names include Chris Foster, Nick Murdy, and Matthew Nordhaus. Usually, the unethic...
