Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do.

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

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

    Twitch Beat Pokemon Red After 16 Days

    It may have taken them 16 days, 7 hours, and 45 minutes, but Twitch has finally beaten Pokemon Red. And if that screenshot wasn't enough for you, then perhaps this video of the final battle with Blue from Twitch Plays Pokemon will warm the cockles of your heart.


    I believe that in all of this, I watched maybe 20 minutes in total. Five minutes near the start of it and about 15 minutes yesterday when they were trying to beat the Elite Four and that was more than enough Pokemon for my liking....

    Invitations Being Sent to Beta Test PlayStation Now

    Some users who signed up for information on PlayStation Now have begun to receive invitations to beta test the service. PlayStation Now is Sony's upcoming streaming service that will let PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita owners stream a wide variety of current and past PlayStation titles to their devices.
