The Best Games of 2018: Tetris Effect

The Best Games of 2018: Tetris Effect

Tetris, like Mario, is one of those perennial games that will probably never go away. The core gameplay of Tetris is solid enough that it can stand on its own some 35 years after it first debuted, but that hasn’t stopped countless developers from trying to put their own unique spin on the puzzle game. Some of these attempts have been more well-received than others, but perhaps the most successful is Tetris Effect, which arrived earlier this year on PlayStation 4.

PlayStation Classic is at its lowest but who’s going to bite

PlayStation Classic is at its lowest but who’s going to bite

It is the age not just of retro gaming but retro gaming consoles as well. The success of the soon to be extremely rare NES Classic has inspired other console and even arcade cabinet makers to try and grab a piece of that pie before it gets cold.

PlayStation Classic emulator menu has an almost easy hack

PlayStation Classic emulator menu has an almost easy hack

Console makers hate emulators because of how they allow people to play games without buying their hardware or even their games. And yet two of the three biggest gaming console companies have resorted to using those for one of the best selling toys. Of course, they take great pains to lock down access to those but it seems that Sony has goofed up a bit, granting access to the installed emulator’s menu using nothing but USB keyboards.
