Spider-Man PS4 Hands-On Impressions at E3 2018 Spider-Man PS4 Hands-On Impressions at E3 2018
- June 12, 2018

Tonight at the Sony Playstation E3 2018 Press Conference, Sony showed a second trailer for the upcoming Marvel Spider-Man game by Insomniac Games . He wallruns and swings around before again encountering the villains. The sixth villain is also likely the person who organized the escape from the Raft and bankrolled the various villains' new super suits, as numerous references are made to an outside benefactor with eyes on trapping Spider-Man in the Raft with his worst enemies.

That's especially true given the company's recent focus on the cloud and the abandonment of the phone hardware market.

It will also offer a single-player mode, called "solo mode", but this does not mean that it will be an offline game.

E3 2018: Ghost of Tsushima is a samurai slasher for Sony's PS4
- June 12, 2018

Either way, Ghost of Tsushima is shaping up to be a game we should keep an eye out for in the near future. Developer Sucker Punch seems to have taken The Witcher as inspiration for this one. For that matter, it didn't give any kind of hint about when we might expect the game to release. Based on the footage that was shown, we feel that the game's combat is going to be paced similar to what we've seen in games like God of War , but the boss battle nearly resembled more of a fighting game.

- June 12, 2018

This didn't provide any clear indication on what the game is all about. Lea Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner will have roles in Death Stranding , and their in-game character models are based on their real-life appearance. We also got to see two other new characters for the first time. Sam is not. He is a working man of sorts - a hands-on professional. Someone with a skillset akin to a blue-collar worker. (more...)

Apple's 2018 models likely to be cheaper than iPhone X Apple's 2018 models likely to be cheaper than iPhone X
- June 12, 2018

This could mean that the most expensive model could be priced similarly to the current iPhone X while the "budget" 6.1-inch iPhone could be priced as low as the iPhone 8. That being said, the design seems to be a direct copy of the iPhone X, complete with the notch and associated sensors for FaceID. Apple's triple lens setup is now unknown, but it would make sense to copy Huawei's approach of a monochrome camera aiding the primary and telephoto modules. (more...)

Death Stranding is now in development for PlayStation 4 and PC. There's mountain climbing, long hikes, risky rivers to cross and more. Yep, Norman Reedus is out there making deliveries. Linday Wagner and Lea Seydoux play two as yet unnamed characters in the game.

- June 12, 2018

While Square Enix's showcase was ultimately disappointing, it's all their own doing. Square are promising "more to come" in August which suggests we'll have to keep guessing until then.

Star Fox is coming to Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas
- June 12, 2018

The introduction of Star Fox into Ubisoft's new space game is completely unexpected, but not necessarily a surprise. Sure, it's not a full-fledged StarFox game, but I'll take it, especially considering that Starlink is a toys-to-life game where you attach miniature spaceships to your controller and, in the case of Switch, that means a special Arwing model.

Last month, the Senate took the first step in a last ditch effort to save net neutrality by passing the Congressional Review Act (CRA) that would overrule the FCC's decision to end the regulation.
