And we’re back on a normal posting schedule! Today’s show features two can’t-miss interviews! First, a lengthy and thought-provoking chat with HoneySlug’s Ricky Haggett and artist Dick Hogg, creators of the whimsical (but also wistful) Hohokum.
This afternoon in Tokyo (11:00pm tonight, Pacific Time), Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia is holding a press conference to make some announcements of interest to Japanese gamers.

Nonetheless, we’re happy to host a livestream of the event here in case you wanted a glimpse into what’s next for PlayStation fans in the East.
Three directors, one show!

But thanks to a host of refinements from Guerrilla Games, Shadow Fall is undeniably a faster, more fluid, and more satisfying Killzone. Call it Killzone reborn.
Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets. These assets were posted online.
