As announced earlier in the year, Sony has created their very own PlayStation Classic in response to Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic releases, bundling 20 PlayStation 1 “classics” onto a smaller version of the original console and with the original DualShock controllers. However, personally (and for a lot of others out there) I find
Who would have thought that 2019 would be such a prospectively amazing year for gaming. However, we have compiled a list of every game coming out and it is time to pick what is your most anticipated game of 2019! You’re given the ability to change your vote at any time before the cutoff time, which will be December
It’s that time of the year again, and you’re now called to decide DualShockers’ annual honor: Game of the Year 2018 – Reader’s Choice Award. Without question, our community is the best part of DualShockers, so we (and the developers and publishers we chat to) know that the Reader’s Choice Award is one of the best

The Game Awards 2018, hosted by Geoff Keighley, just concluded. Along with numerous awards being given out, several new game announcements were spliced in throughout the show. That being said, the announcements that left the greatest impact were the World Premieres for new games that took place during the event. While some of the PC,
Portal by Valve was arguably one of the most innovative games of its time in 2007, with players still today crying out for a Portal 3. Although none of the original three writers still work at Valve anymore, so it’s quite unlikely to happen and it probably wouldn’t be the same anyway, but fans of
Hey everyone, long time no chat! This is Lou Contaldi, Editor-in-Chief of DualShockers and I’m looking for your help. If you’ve been a frequent reader, you may have noticed that DualShockers design looked… dated. Not much has changed since when DualShockers first started in 2009. While it may be a streamlined way to get to
The half-genie platformer Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is getting a physical edition distributed by Limited Run. Fans of the series can start pre-ordering either the Standard Edition or the Collector’s Edition on December 7.

GRID Autosport is a Codemasters game all about racing, taking muscle cars to the mountains, Formula cars to the tracks, and more. It originally launched on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 and was later ported to iOS devices. While the press release states that there will be a “range of driving disciplines” we should expect to
It’s that time of the month again when Sony reveals which games will be available for free through PlayStation Plus. The December 2018 line-up will include Soma and Onrush on the PlayStation 4—perhaps not the biggest blockbuster titles for the holiday season, but games that people are passionate and opinionated about regardless.

A patent from Sony has surfaced detailing a new kind of gaming cartridge. The patent was granted last month on October 5, 2018, after originally being submitted in November 2017. The cartridge itself was invented by Yujin Morisawa, the Senior Art Director at the Corporate Design Center of Sony Interactive Entertainment. The design of the cartridges looks
Being deaf, I’ve often made jokes about bad subtitles that are too small to read. Just in the past few years we’ve seen a few examples of how games have stumbled when it comes to implementing proper subtitles, such as Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus with its tiny subtitles that blend, or walls of text in Fallout 4.
As most of us already now, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the best days in terms of game deals each year, and 2018 looks to be no different. Personally, I snagged Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Dragon Quest XI, SoulCalibur VI, and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition at heavily discounted prices this past weekend.
Agent has become somewhat of a joke the past 11 years or so since its announcement. The Rockstar Games-developed title never really got anything more than a small announcement back during Sony’s E3 2009 press conference. Now in 2018, it seems like the chances we’ll ever see the title are next to none, as a few
Console exclusives, which are usually first-party nowadays, have always been a hallmark of the gaming industry and are often some of the games hardcore fans look forward too most. This year has seen some standout exclusives including God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Forza Horizon 4, all of which received critical acclaim and sold well.
I’ve been recently making my way through the newest Tomb Raider game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I’ve been spending more of my game time pondering why I’m not digging this entry as much as the previous two than actually focusing on the digital world in front of me. I usually take that as a
Chicago residents currently face an Amusement Tax whenever they try to attend concerts and other events or amusement parks. Currently, the city has been in a legal battle discussing the issue of a “Cloud Tax” that would slam a nine percent tax on streaming services such as Netflix and Spotify. The whole ordeal was excellently
Last week, Variety broke the news that Ubisoft Motion Pictures was planning on developing a live action TV show based on 2014 RPG Child of Light as well as a movie based on the 2016 VR game Werewolves Within.

Last month, fledgling publisher Modus Games revealed that they would be working alongside Frozenbyte Game to release Trine 4. That sequel is pegged to release in 2019 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, though that last platform was surprising considering the series hadn’t made an appearance on the Switch yet. Fortunately, the will be
During Take-Two Interactive’s earnings call for the end of Q2 fiscal year 2019, it was revealed that Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V has once again passed another major milestone.

When we think of horror games, our minds usually swing immediately to the survival end of the genre’s spectrum with classic titles such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and more recently the Dead Space series. Rightly so, too, as these are phenomenal franchises and well-deserving of their placements as the pinnacles of horror within the video
After initially unveiling the PlayStation Classic earlier this year, Sony today finally announced the full list of titles that will be coming to the mini-console for those of us here in western markets. Regardless of whether you think it’s missing out on such classic games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it’s
A new set of proposed rules from The Librarian of Congress and the US Copyright Office will make it easier for game preservation work for titles that rely on online servers to exist as well as helping independent repair work be done to old hardware.

Some users have begun receiving emails containing their voucher to participate in the PlayStation Network Online ID change preview that will come alongside System Software update 6.10 for the PlayStation 4. However, the fine print reportedly contains some worrying side-effects. Should your PlayStation Network Online ID change, games on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation
The Yakuza series has received a surge in popularity recently due to the games finally catching on in the west, so SEGA made the wise decision to remaster PS3 titles Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5 for PS4, at least in Japan. The Yakuza 3 remaster released in Japan back in August, topping the
The Nintendo Switch, despite some hardware limitations, has been surprisingly friendly to Musou games. So far Hyrule Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors and Warriors Orochi 4 have all hit the system, and today Koei Tecmo America announced plans to bring a definitive edition of Dynasty Warriors 8 to the hybrid console before the end of 2018.
Polish developer People Can Fly has had a very interesting decade. After rising to prominence through the cult classics Painkiller and Bulletstorm, the studio was acquired by Epic Games in 2012. While becoming a subsidiary under a large and safe company like Epic is a preferable situation for a lot of developers, People Can Fly
