For the longest time, Sony has adopted an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” ideology when it came to its dual-shock Playstation controller. The iconic remote hadn’t had a major design overhaul since its debut in 1997, until the Dual-shock 4 was released.
PS4′s gamepad managed to improve (for many) on an already beloved design, and if you wished you could use Sony’s newest controller on a Playstation 3 wirelessly, then you’re in luck, because now you can. Read more »

After countless Angry Birds games based on the same original formula, Rovio has tried to diversify it a bit recently, starting with Angry Birds Go, which was a kart racing game (*cough* Mario Kart *cough* Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing *cough*). The latest game in the Angry Birds series is Angry Birds Epic, which like Angry Birds Go has very little to do with the original games and is actually an RPG. Read more »
