Every Trophy Counts
PlayStation is holding their first State of Play Tuesday morning. It's Sony's first foray into the video showcase element that Xbox and Nintendo have both been doing for some time now with Microsoft's Inside Xbox shows and Nintendos Nintendo Directs.
If you're already pretty darn excited for FromSoft's next game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice like me, you probably don't need to watch a new trailer for the game, you know you want it.
PAX AUS is taking place a little earlier in 2019 and it's hopefully going to work out all the better.
PlayStation Game Reviews
I remember watching the 1976 Storm Boy film based on the novel of the same name by Colin Thiele in school as a kid and really enjoying it, although I assumed it had been made for fifty dollars.
The works of H.P Lovecraft have seen something of a resurgence of late and not just inspiring games like Bloodborne, but more direct adaptations as well. Call of Cthulhu is a video game adaptation of the board game more than the book of the same name directly, but the Cthulhu mythos created by Lovecraft is everywhere.
Evasion is designed for co-op play and fun afternoons blasting aliens in the face with a friend while listening to a heavy metal soundtrack and dropping smack talk on your fictional foes. Unfortunately, if you can’t find someone to play with, it’s a rather repetitive shooting gallery that has you wishing you knew someone to jump online with you.
Beat Saber has released its first DLC pack and Dylan loves one particular song from the release. Dylan & Ashley also discuss what genres of music could work in Beat Saber, along with celebrating the game hitting 1 million units sold.
PlayStation China is publishing 7 brand new games that were just announced. Dylan and Ashley give the trailers a look and team "F.I.S.T (working title)" to be GOTY 2019.
It's time to celebrate one-hundred episodes of Platinum Explosion with this special episode recorded LIVE on Twitch. Topics include PS Plus, Dolby Atmos, Ni No Kuni, PS Vita and more.
Media Molecule's Dreams is going to be releasing as an Early Access title now before its full release in the future.
Sony Bend released a new trailer for Days Gone with a wedding theme. Ashley and Ciaran give their thoughts and question if it will shift people’s interest in the next Sony exclusive.

Insomniac Games are celebrating 25 years as a studio this year, so Dylan and Ash take a look back at all of the studio's releases, particularly those most important to the PlayStation platform.
Media Molecule finally lifted the NDA and the translucent wall that was keeping all the juicy things being made in Dreams hidden (kinda) secret, so it's time for Dylan and Ash to discuss what people have been dreaming up.
