PlayStation Unchained 62: Limited Edition PS4 Blues

Posted in PlayStation Universe, ps4, gaming, vita, ps3, video games, PlayStation by psu on December 17th, 2014

PlayStation Unchained is back once again after a short break (sorry about that!), and there's plenty to discuss!

For example, Uncharted 4 was present at the PlayStation Experience event in the form of a fifteen-minute gameplay demo, and there are lots of opinions going around about the graphics. Of course, we have our own.
Resident Evil is coming to PlayStation Vita at last, and the first Destiny "Expansion Pack" has arrived. The former's great news, but perhaps the latter could use some work.
Sony has announced the 20th Anniversary edition of the PlayStation 4, and it is gorgeous--but there's little chance that you or anyone you know will manage to get their hands on one. Also, a new God of War is in development, though a long way from completion.
In addition, there are review discussions for The Walking Dead, Kingdom Hearts 2.5, and more.
There's a lot more to this episode, and we hope you enjoy it! Tune in next week for another great episode, and be sure to follow us on Twitter @PSUdotcom!

Racial Diversity Gaming Hour 44: RDGH ends, 4GO begins; NPD November

Posted in ps4, gaming, vita, ps3, video games, Racial Diversity Gaming Hour, xbox, nintendo, Wii, PlayStation by psu on December 17th, 2014

Well, gamers, it's been a fun run, but RDGH is coming to an end--sort of! This show is not necessarily about PlayStation, which isn't right for a news outlet that is. Even so, we're still going to be bringing you great information and discussion about the world of gaming.

RDGH will continue moving forward with a new name, new branding, and complete independence. Racial Diversity Gaming Hour is now For Gamers Only. It's still a show for real gamers--the gamers that love games, regardless of what platforms they may be on, and enjoy the best of all platforms--and will still strive for fair analysis and discussion of gaming news.
4GO's independence means a little footwork for listeners, however! It's no longer going to be part of PSU's subscription outlets (like iTunes, Podbean, or TVersity). Once our new accounts are set up, head to iTunes or your favorite other podcast outlet and subscribe to our very own! We'll let you know when we're ready for you. Also, please follow us on Twitter @4GOnly for updates, discussion topics, and our questions of the week!
A huge thank you goes to PSU for hosting RDGH for 44 weeks and helping to make the show what it is.
Of course, this isn't just a goodbye episode for RDGH. We've missed a lot while sorting out the logistics of this big change! Join the most racially diverse gaming crew on the Internet--Ben Shillabeer-Hall, Garri Bagdasarov, and host Glenn Gordon--for this final episode of the Racial Diversity Gaming Hour.
The Game Awards was one thing RDGH missed, and Garri has some opinions about what went down. After discussing that and PlayStation Experience, the crew discusses the new announcement of Devil May Cry for PS4 and Xbox One, and Street Fighter V's new exclusivity with PlayStation. Though it sucks to have a formerly multiple-platform game go exclusive to just one, there are some benefits that wouldn't be possible otherwise.
There's also the 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4, and the crew thinks it a huge mistake on Sony's part to limit them so strictly.
Finally, the crew delves into the NPD results for November and the end of PlayStation 4's winning streak in the United States, and discusses the games on top and the games that didn't make the cut. Also, if you're interested in Nintendo's Amiibo figurines, you may want to act quickly; some of them may be going away for good.
This week, our into and outro are different parts of the same song. It comes from Overclocked Remix, and it's a mashup of Simple and Clean and Dearly Beloved from the renowned Kingdom Hearts games. It was remixed by Tetrimino at OCRemix, and it's a fantastic fusion jazz mix of two iconic songs. To download it and many other great video game remixes in full and for free, head to
All of this and much more comprises the 44th and final episode of the Racial Diversity Gaming Hour. Join us next week for the first time as For Gamers Only, and pay attention to Twitter, PSU, and iTunes for more details over the next few days! Until then, remember to enjoy all gaming, regardless of brand coloring. In other words, and for the last time, don't be a racist.

PlayStation Unchained 61: Xbox is swinging, but PS4’s turn is coming

Posted in PlayStation Universe, ps4, gaming, vita, ps3, video games, PlayStation by psu on November 27th, 2014

This week on PlayStation Unchained, join Garri Bagdasarov, Ben Shillabeer-Hall, and host Mike Harradence as they discuss the world of PlayStation gaming!

Assassin's Creed: Unity has been doing very well, but has just barely missed the top charts. Meanwhile, Sony Santa Monica is working on its "next big franchise," and we all want to know just what that is.
Xbox One is bringing the pain for the holidays, but PlayStation 4 is not in a terrible spot with its PlayStation Experience event right around the corner and the crown for exclusives waiting for it in early 2015. Speaking of the PlayStation Experience, there is yet more information on what to expect from Sony's big event.
Finally, Call of Duty is in the news again. CoD: Advanced Warfare has been named the "biggest entertainment launch of 2014," outselling media in and out of the video game industry. In fact, Call of Duty as a whole has outsold a combination of some major players in entertainment.
There are reviews to discuss as well! PSU has reviews for #killallzombies, Never Alone, LittleBigPlanet 3, Assassin's Creed: Rogue, and more. In fact, this episode has a lot more in it, including some talk about the new Super Smash Brothers game for the Wii U. Don't miss it!
Swing by next week for episode 62, and stick to PlayStation Universe for the greatest news in PlayStation gaming.

Racial Diversity Gaming Hour 43: Xbox gamers allegedly “shafted”

Posted in ps4, gaming, vita, ps3, video games, Racial Diversity Gaming Hour, xbox, nintendo, Wii, PlayStation by psu on November 26th, 2014

This week has been an interesting one in gaming, and RDGH is back once again to give you the details! Join host Glenn Gordon (who apologizes for his strange audio this week), Garri Bagdasarov, and Ben Shillabeer-Hall for episode 43 of the Racial Diversity Gaming Hour.

One of our Twitter friends brought up Wander, the combat-free MMO (yes, combat-free MMO) coming soon to PlayStation 4. It sounds interesting, despite a scarcity of information, but can it succeed? Feel free to tweet with us as well! Just follow @TheRDGH.

PlayStation could be preparing to become a bit more involved in its sales. The company recently added a field for a discount code in the PS4 PlayStation Store, but how does Sony intend to use it? Also, Guerrilla Games is hiring for a media producer—could it be getting ready to promote its mysterious new game?

We don’t tend to hear much about South Korea when it comes to console-based video games, but PlayStation 4 is apparently doing well there—so well, in fact, that more Korea-focused games are on the horizon.

Also, find out just what free eye candy will be coming to DRIVECLUB after the game’s dreadful launch issues.

Xbox One is doing quite well for the holidays. An EA exec stated that global Xbox sales are “catching up quickly” to those of the PlayStation 4, but the crew thinks that PS4 may not have much to worry about going into 2015.

Gamers have apparently been upset with Xbox after Microsoft offered early adopters a free copy of LIMBO. An article on posits that the $10 indie is not enough to reward gamers for being the first to purchase the Xbox One, and that early adopters of the console have been “shafted” in favor of those getting great Xbox One bundles this year. It doesn’t stop there—some gamers have been outraged at for bringing up concerns with the Xbox One in a recent video, accusing it of subtly promoting the PS4 and being “biased” against Microsoft’s console. Yeah, Glenn’s not too happy with gamers on this one.

Finally, the crew takes a look at a great article by an epidemiologist named Georgie Catto from, who discusses the plausibility of a pandemic-based apocalypse like that in The Last of Us. The article is a great read and definitely worth checking out.

Our intro music this week is from Overclocked Remix. It’s a remix from Sonic CD, the background music for the Lava Reef Zone in act 1, as well as a couple other songs from the game thrown in here and there. The remix is called “Chips out of Water,” and it’s by Rexy, from OCremix. Our outro is called Trinity. Kingdom Hearts fans, you’ll recognize it quickly—it’s a remix of Dearly Beloved, from the Kingdom Hearts menus. It’s an excellent remix by Tspeiro. This are amazing remixes that you can have in full, for free! To get them and many more, head straight to

That's it for episode 43! Next week will bring episode 44 and a host of new stories (and better audio from Glenn)! Until then, remember to avoid discrimination against video game platforms based on color or logo. In other words, don't be a racist.
