Posted on August 15, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

‘Attack of the Blockbuster’ isn’t the return of the now defunct 90s / 00s video rental chain but the name of the latest large sale on the PlayStation Network. Featuring games from publishers like Electronic Arts, Arc System Works, 2K Games, Activision, Square Enix, Nippon Ichi Software and Square Enix – it is clear that Sony is going for AAA deals this week. Some of the standout titles (at least to my tastes) include a deeply discounted Dead or Alive 5: The Last Round, Final Fantasy HD Collection (hey two games for the price of one!), the PS4 port of

It is no big secret that EA’s Battlefront edition set in the Star Wars universe is pretty.  barren.  right.  now.  Most of the peopel who are still playing the game are experiencing long load match load times, low population counts, and difficulty even finding a game.

Broken Deals: FFXIV, PSN Flash Sale, Sonic & More

Posted on January 22, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

The weekend is finally here – a time for most of us to kick back, relax and possibly catch up on our massive backlog of games. Except with the awesome deals that both Steam and a surprise Sony Flash Sale are offering it is more probably than not that more games will end up in your backlog rather than being completed.

Prepare to enter the shadows like the caped crusader or sneak up on some Orcs like the protagonist of 2014’s Shadow of Mordor with deals from both Warner Bros Games and 2K Games on PlayStation Network this week.
