What E3 2012 Could Have Been

Followed much coverage of E3 this week? Yeah, me either. What I have seen has been less-than-stellar, and in some cases, downright boring (looking at you Nintendo…and Sony…and Microsoft). I can’t remember a year when I was less disappointed about video games in the near-term. The video game industry has ceased to be about video […]

…Wherein Sony tries something I actually don’t hate…

Today Joystiq explicates a new PSN trick, one that actually isn’t a terrible idea.  Killzone 3’s multiplayer will be a free-to-play, standalone title on the PSN, and if you like it so much and want to proceed beyond the set level-cap you can pay $14.99 to continue digital improvement.  If you can stomach remaining at the same, […]
