Chella reports on all things Gamescom this week. Watching both major conferences, it looked like Microsoft would finally put one in the win column, until Sony came out and blew them away once again.
Todd pits the new PlayStation Now streaming service against the new EA Access download service as both try to mimic the success of PC streaming services like Steam for the console. So, which is better so far?
It’s been a long, slow summer, with games releases very thin on the ground. All is not lost, dear play chums. Gamescom, Europe’s biggest industry show and one of the highlights of the gaming calendar, is just two weeks away. Publishers and developers are whetting our appetite with lineup announcements and it’s looking good. Based on what we know and some wishful thinking, I list the things I want to see at Gamescom. BioWare’s new IP What we know: The Mass Effect developer has confirmed that a new IP will be revealed at Gamescom 2014. We’ve been treated to a […]
A dying Mac forces Todd back into the world of PC gaming, where he finds that a lot has improved since he left in disgust a few years ago. So look out PC players – he’s baaaaack!

But I do fill in for Chella when she’s on vacation. She spent the last week at the Glastonbury Festival over in England, which is a pretty big music and cultural event that looks like a lot of fun. Chella and her team of friends help to organize a small part of the show, so she’s doubly tired I’m sure. Meanwhile, here in the United States, we have a […]
Recently Bungie pulled back the curtains a bit on the upcoming Destiny game with a three day Alpha. What we found inside the beautiful and deadly world wasn’t quite a shooter and not really an MMO either, but something unique, and at times, pretty wonderful.
This week Todd wades deep into the dark side of indie gaming, where he finds the creator of the amazingly cool Fez game. But radical views against gamers who stream make the courtship a short one.
With a somewhat subdued E3 Expo 2014, Chella still manages to find the best bits from the show, and reveals quite a few pretty cool gems that are not to be missed. Stop by and see if you sync up with Chella this week on what you are dying to play in 2014.
