Egg Shaped PS4? – Just what are Sony UK Teasing?

Sony have yet to show off their PS4 console, and it’s causing many to wonder just what the device will look like. That’s why a post on the UK Sony Facebook page is causing a bit of a splash with their followers.

Strategy-Hungry Gamers Pledge $40,000 to Kickstarter in 24 Hours

The turn-based strategy genre used to be a big hitter on PC and even managed to leak onto consoles occasionally. That was a long time ago though, and if you want something similar today you’ll need to be content with going with something a little older or something that’s not exactly what you want.

There’s been a great deal of talk about piracy lately, especially since the latest SimCity was released.

More Evidence of Halo 3 PC Surfaces

The Halo 3 PC mystery has just gotten a little deeper. After Halo 3 (and its predecessors) turned up in the Steam registry, PC gamers were ready to jump at the chance to play some of the best rated FPS titles on their rigs. Microsoft shot down the idea, specifically saying that it wasn’t going to happen. So why is there an entry for Halo 3 in the latest AMD beta drivers? From the beta drivers: <profile Area=”UDX” Usage=”Halo3″ Notes=”Halo3″><value…

Lightning Returns – Square Reveal Beautiful Location and Special Abilities

Lightning Returns is almost certainly going to shake things up a little when it releases later this year. Although key features from previous Final Fantasy XIII games will be making a return, the game's emphasis on time is present even in Lightning's abilities. Square Enix have today released a set of screen shots showing off some of her new abilities. Lightning will be able to not only heal herself, but to slow down time around her. This will make bigger enemies far easier to dodge and easier to recover from as well.
