I consequently benefitted from [...]

It feels good to be back and writing again for PlusXP! (Cheap pop) Ok enough of that. Hot off the heels of The Order: 1886 being released; the question of morality in gaming has once again reared its ugly head. Sequels, tie-ins, DLC etc. There are so many things for people to complain about nowadays that I’ve just realised I’m complaining about complaining. For now, I’ll delve into the hot topic of longevity in a game. The Order’s length is [...]

Short of marrying it, I would do anything for my PS4. It’s like the perfect partner. It gives me so much fun, pleasure (not in that way) and it never asks for anything in return. But if something did happen to me and my PS4, we have a falling out and I leave it; I can go back to my PS3 which I still play a lot thanks to Playstation Plus. Just a side note, I have never engaged in [...]

Contributed By CJ   A little while ago Sony unveiled the Vita TV and surprised everyone. A slice of Sony’s latest handheld which hasn’t set the world on fire sales wise, yet has an army of very passionate fans. I picked one up a few months back and have really enjoyed it. Not just for stuff like Persona 4 – which looks superb – the cross-play stuff I’ve already bought on PS3, but for those beautiful little gems from PS1 [...]
