PlayStation Plus Leaked, Includes Crysis 3, Road Not Taken

Three games from this month's PlayStation Plus have leaked. It's not the big AAA games that some might have hoped for from August's lineup, but there's still some good titles there for those that don't already have them. The ad, which was published on the official PlayStation website, doesn't contain every single game, but since these are the ones Sony have chosen to "headline," it probably means this is the best that's coming.

5 Ways to make the Uncharted Movie not Completely Suck

Earlier this week, Sony sneakily announced that it was still developing the Uncharted movie, and even gave us a release date. The reaction was muted to say the least, not because the prospect of an awesome Uncharted movie is a bad thing, but because we've had so few good video game films that it's safe to assume Nathan Drake's big screen adventure will be equally crummy. That doesn't have to be inevitable though. Here are five ways Sony could adapt Uncharted to ...

How to Read a Game Review

There's always a lot of discussion when a review doesn't fit the chosen narrative of a game's hype. Even when it's pretty much spot on, fans of a given franchise will question why it didn't score higher when it's their very favourite new game, better than Grand Theft Auto V by miles "and look at what you gave that!"

Very little has been said about the Uncharted film, nothing good anyway. The rights were sold years ago and a lot of people have been attached to the project, although nothing seems to have ever come of it.
