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.

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.

Hey! Have you heard? EVERYTHING IS ON SALE! It’s not just Valve looking to steal randelas from your credit card, there’s also a ton of other goods on special thanks to Black Friday in the USA (which even some SA retailers seem to be taking part in). No matter where I look today, there is some or other discounted game looking to rob my pocket. It got me thinking about how big my gaming library and collection really is, and how much of it I haven’t even finished, let alone touched. I’m not just talking Steam here, I have many titles across several consoles that still need some loving!

We’re in a transitional phase right now when it comes to old consoles. What’s new is current-gen and what was current-gen is now rickety and about attractive as getting a gummy kiss from your great grandmother in that dodgy old age home. We’re seeing fewer and fewer games announced for older consoles, with 2015 most likely the death knell for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems. And don’t expect Dying Light to rise from the dead on those platforms either, as those versions have been canned.

rAge was cool for many reasons - there were awesome cosplayers wandering around, cool demos to play and plenty of like-minded people to chat with. I managed to escape the chaos of the floor for the press lounge to interview Robert Fisser, head of PlayStation for the Middle East and Africa. He answered all my questions, including the trickier ones.

RUN! It’s a new Godzilla game! And this time, Bandai Namco has the license so we can now totally run away in terror as this will be a fully approved Godzilla game so we don’t have to fear reprisals from Toho and Warner Bros about infringing on their trademark! Run away!

In five or so months, it’ll be a year since Battlefield 4 was released – and for many, it’s still a bit of an unplayable mess. On the one hand, we should be a little thankful that DICE is still trying their best to fix it, but on the other, they should never have released the game in the state they did. They’ve haemorrhaged enough goodwill that people are hesitant to buy the next Battlefield game. That aside, the newest patch for Battlefield 4 should make it a smoother experience for many, provided they have fast enough internet connectivity.

The idea behind PlayStation Plus has been shockingly simple since it debuted four years ago. Customers pay a reasonable annual fee for the service, and get ten times that value back in games being available to download for free every month. Somehow, this idea worked. And now, the service is getting an overhaul.

I’m sure someone at Ubisoft has to be giggling about how their upcoming hacktivity game Watch Dogs has itself been hacked lately. Watch Dogs is out on a bunch of platforms next week, with the PC and new-gen versions looking great so far. But don’t count out the older gen just yet, because the game looks rather lovely on that aged hardware.

Darryn has a way of selling everything (except his virginity) when he needs to buy the latest and greatest things. However, even he has retained his old-gen consoles - mostly because Geoff talked him out of selling. Now, Microsoft wants you to trade in your old tech for new tech.

I’m not a big fan of hosting other gaming sites videos for the obvious reason that we don’t want to lose you to some massive faceless corporation which just posts gaming news because they profit from it. But this comparison video and interview that the real IGN has managed to put together really does showcase what is so special about the new consoles.
