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 OCRemix.org.
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.
