Ourcade Games: Strider Review (PS4)

Ourcade games - "There are a ton of games and franchises from yesteryear that would make excellent choices for a revival subject. Gamers as a collective have been screaming for quite a few lately. Road Rash comes to mind. Streets of Rage also has tons of support. One thing needs to happen to make these dreams a reality. We have to support the games that companies decide to bring back from the past. Im not saying buy any game that developers brush the dirt off of. Im saying when a good one comes along, dont just talk about how great it is. BUY IT. We have to encourage the people sitting on these…

Renting a PS3 game from PlayStation Now could cost $5 - Is that the sweet spot?

One of the most pressing unanswered questions about Sony's upcoming cloud-powered streaming service PlayStation Now is how much it will cost to rent games. We may now know, as an image posted on the Gaikai website shows a rental for Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be $5, while you can rent Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 for $6. The image was spotted by VG247 and remains available through the history section of Gaikai's website. Sony purchased Gaikai in 2012 for $380 million and announced during CES this year that it would use the company's technology to power PlayStation Now, which is now…

PlayStation Plus: Lone Survivor: Directors Cut Free for Members

By Kristine Steimer: "Its easy to look at Lone Survivors art style and think its not going to scare you, but this game is legitimately freaky. Youll take the role of a creeptastic guy attempting to survive in a city overrun by disease, which apparently turns you into a nasty walking ball of fleshy bits."

Microsofts next-gen equivalent, the Xbox One, has likely racked up sales of around 4 million so far. Both flagship consoles were released around the same time in late November last year, in time for the 2013 holiday season. And both companies have been shouting loudly about whos beating whom for cumulative console and games sales globally and in key markets like the U.S.

Strider Review | gamrReview

gamrReview's Brent Galietti: "We haven't seen a new Strider game in over a decade, so it's good to see Double Helix bring the master ninja back in Strider. Although the game has some faults and the environments and graphics feel mundane, hacking, slashing, and overpowering foes feels great, like controlling a powerful ninja should. This is a solid return for the Striderseries and I look forward to seeing how it evolves from this point on."

Oh Hey, Diablo 3 Is Good Now | Whats New And Different?

TechRaptor - Most of us know the sad story of Diablo 3. It was an immensely hyped game leading up to its release, and everything shown for it implied it would be worth the wait, that long wait that preceded every major Blizzard release. A few warning signs tipped us off that not everything was shiny, like the always-on DRM, and systems like the Auction House interfered (to me, at least) with some defining series and genre staples.
