PS3

What's old is new. At least, that's the saying. While some people have already jumped into the new generation, and others (like Darryn) have even abandoned the old generation consoles, many people are still playing the newest games on PS3 and Xbox 360. Our best game for old consoles certainly makes them feel new once more.

2014 is most likely the final year for any cross-console games. It’s a transition that we’ve gone through before, from the PlayStation 1 and N64 days, all the way up to the latest devices as players hop from PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One. As you might imagine, there’s always going to be a gap between games released across generations. But right now, that divide is simply massive.

A while back, I sold my PS3. I was done, and ready to move on. Now I hear that Suikoden II has been released on that console, as well as the PS Vita. And I feel like an amazingly massive tosspot over this missed opportunity.

Dragon: Age Inquisition is a pretty good game, if you’re not the sort who prefers RPG’s featuring spiky pink-haired androgynous lead characters. Unfortunately, there are still a couple of issues that are preventing it from being a wholly incredible experience. It’s getting a patch today – but it unfortunately doesn’t fix the issue that’s making the game a little soulless for me right now.

Right now, the majority of US servers for Sony’s PlayStation network seem to be down. Many users are currently reporting being unable to log in to the service, being hit instead with error codes. As with last week’s Xbox Live outage, a familiar group is claiming responsibility.

I’ve spent many a happy hour shooting people on both Pandora and Elpis in the Borderlands universe. I was particularly chuffed with all the core DLC that Borderlands 2 got – well, at least 2 of them. The Torque and Tiny Tina campaigns were well worth the extra money, and almost made me forget how underwhelming those other two were. Pre-Sequel is taking a different approach to their additional content. The first gave players the opportunity to play as a Handsome Jack clone. The second has just been announced, and it’s called The Holodome Onslaught. Basically, it’s a new challenge arena.

Resogun may not have been my first PlayStation 4 game, but it very certainly is one of the very best that I’ve ever played on that console. And now, it looks like the older generation will be getting a chance to keep humans on their lawn.

Probably the first thing I ask myself when I get up in the morning is, “why are there so few MOBAs in the world?” Then I realise we’re not back in 2013, and that there are approximately 4536* different titles in existence now. Sorry, did I say 4536? I meant 4537. There is a new kid on the MOBA block.

Ubisoft’s open world racer The Crew is out, to little fanfare. Unlike some other great big social racing games, this one almost works as promised. That said, that doesn’t mean it's safe from the current scourge of day one patches. If you’re one of the handful of die-hard racing fans who’ve already purchased The Crew, then you’ve probably already been subjected to the patch. If you’re still on the fence, then just know that you’ll have to do some downloading before you get started.

Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, is coming next week. As you’re likely aware, those playing the game on PlayStation platforms will be treated to exclusive content that won’t be going to that other platform until "at least Autumn 2015." Sony’s PlayStation Blog has finally detailed that content.

[Update] It's mostly back online. If you’re in South Africa and you’re trying to connect to Xbox Live right now, you have a problem; you’re playing games when you should be working. Right now though, it’s prime night gaming time in the US – and Xbox Live is very much down. The usually rock-solid service is currently on its knees – with that jolly group of hackers (Or script kiddies, if you like) – Lizard Squad – taking credit for its issues.

Blink and the year just disappears. We are in December already! It’s the perfect time to wind down and take a break, and by break, I mean play games! It’s also the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends, without the pressure of work and hopefully life in general. Why not combine the best of both worlds and spend some holiday time getting lost in co-op gaming? The folks from King Price Insurance have asked us to round up some top co-op titles you can pick up this festive season.
