Sony has revealed an absolutely massive list of games that will be playable on the show floor at next month’s PlayStation experience. Of course some of the biggest Fall 2015 games which have already hit store shelves will have a presence there – like Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Destiny: The Taken King. It will also be the public’s first opportunity to try out some of the hottest upcoming titles for Q1 / Q2 2016 including – Far Cry Primal, Gravity Rush: Remastered, Battleborn and Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster.

In that last paragraph alone I mentioned quite a few awesome games but the full list is peppered with big AAA titles, games from smaller publishers, digital only games and of course some really high quality indie titles as well. Make sure to check out the full list after the jump.

PlayStation Experience runs from December 4th through the 5th at the Moscone Centre in San Fransisco California. If you aren’t able to make it down to Cali for the event Sony also live streams their opening press conference which is usually filled with huge reveals!Read More


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 review: Here we go again all over again.

Black Ops III

Please note that this review covers the PS4 version, and some features are not available for the PS3/Xbox 360 versions

Treyarch does an amazing job once more with another installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 3. The series has come a long way from the World War II era setting of World at War, to Cold War settings of Black Ops 1, and the more recent near future settings of Black Ops 2 and now 3.  Just like Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Treyarch tries to keep the Call of Duty fresh and engaging for it’s fans, and I feel that it has succeeded with those objectives.

Upon starting up the game and getting the necessary content downloaded to be able to play single player, I brought up the menu and happened upon the Identity section and was immediately taken aback when I explored further into it. I was taken aback due to the fact of the sheer level of customization that can be done with individual weapon setups. A new feature in the franchise is the ability to customize optics, attachments, camos, and paint jobs. In addition to that, the player can save multiple variants of individual weapon setups and use them across Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies, provided that the weapons and attachments are unlocked though each mode. One thing to note is that similar to the emblems, paint jobs add an individual flair if one wants to take the time to make use of a whopping 64 layers for the left and right sides, and the top of the gun. All of that can be done within Gunsmith or Paintshop sub-menus. Also making returns are unlockable calling cards and customizable emblems, franchise staples introduced in Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 1, respectively. Expanding upon those two features you are now the abilities to unlock calling cards via Campaign, Zombies, and from Supply Drops found in Multiplayer.
