After All These Years, Harmonix Relives The Story of Rock Band

blank To celebrate years of DLC, and as a final farewell after the release of the final song for the platform, Harmonix have today released a video reliving some of the highs and lows of the very best plastic music franchise ever. And if that isn’t enough for you, there’s some pretty terrible singing as well! It’s hard to believe that the main Rock Band franchise only really encompassed six games, and that two of those games were band-specific, but it’s…

 

Thief: Out of the Shadows Officially Unveiled

blank Square Enix have today officially unveiled the next Thief game. Subtitled Out of the Shadows, the new entry in the successful cult franchise will be released on PC, PS4 and “other next-gen consoles.” Aside from the trailer, very little was revealed about the game.

Final Fantasy Soundtrack Hits Third Place in Classic FM Hall of Fame

blank The Final Fantasy soundtrack has managed the impossible this year, beating out the likes of Beethoven and Mozart to come third in the Classic FM Hall of Fame for 2013. It managed to jump thirteen places over last year and stands both as a testament to the dedication of gamers to this particular body of music, and to a changing attitude towards the medium.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, Asia, Pan-Asia Dissolved, One Company Formed

blank Sony have today announced that it is closing Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment Asia and Sony Computer Entertainment Pan-Asia, replacing all three companies with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia. The one company will run across several territories, not entirely unlike SCEE has been doing for years. This will mean several big changes to the way these territories are run. Although it seems odd timing – what with it being April Fools and all – ...

Valve Confirm Half-Life 4 (But Check the Date…) – A Short History of Half-Life Hope

blank Of all the nonsense we'll see today, this is probably going to be the most annoying. Valve have placed an entry for Half-Life 4 into the Steam registry. After so many years of teasing for Half-Life 3, I'm sure there are more than a few fans who will find this a little close to the bone.

 

There’s Already a Petition to bring Hayter back to The Phantom Pain

blank It’s been only a little over twelve hours since we got our first proper look at Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and less since we discovered the voice of Solid Snake and Big Boss, David Hayter, would not be reprising his role. It’s odd – especially since the Japanese Snake actor is confirmed to be returning – and it’s made people angry. Some even feel dedicated enough to petition Kojima and Konami in the hopes of changing their…

 

THQ Titles Begin to Disappear on PlayStation Store

blank THQ is gone and many of its top IPs have been bought up by other companies. This has meant some fantastic bargains for gamers across all platforms, but it seems that those days may be over. Several THQ-published games, including Red Faction: Guerilla, have disappeared from the EU PlayStation store. No word yet on if these titles are still available for download, or if the new owners are just changing the splash-screens, but if there's any THQ games that you've been putting off buying, now ...

 
 

Metal Gear Veteran Akio Ōtsuka Still Playing Big Boss in Japanese Phantom Pain

blank With the almost unthinkable announcement that David Hayter would not be returning for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, many people have taken to trying to explain why that might be. Perhaps Richard Doyle is coming in, now that Big Boss is getting older? Maybe a young Solid Snake is appearing, voiced by the only guy we thought could play the character? All are possible, if a little unfounded. The theories don’t hold much water when you realize Akio…
