Take a trip down PlayStation’s memory lane with this video giving each generation of the legendary machines a timely nod through styling and prop design. We fucking love you PlayStation, thanks for the wasted hours when we should have been outside learning to ride a bike or some shit. Check out the video after the jump and remember the good ol’ days before online gaming and when you had that sick see-through memory card.

It was the Games Media Awards last Thursday night, at which our awesome games editor Julia Hardy was up for best mainstream magazine writer. It was a scary moment – if we’d won it, we’d have lost our record of never having won any awards for anything ever. What do awards even look like? We have no idea. Maybe something like a flute?
Luckily we don’t have to take “winners of nothing” off our CVs, as the award went to the lady from the New Statesman. The New Statesman is like the poshest magazine in the world, so it’s sort of like losing out to Hugh Grant in something – we can cope with that.
Congratulations to Julia for being nominated in the first place, to all the winners (especially this guy, who fucking rules), and cheers to the GMAs for having us. A full list of winners is here, and this piece that won the games writer of the year award is a great read.
We fucking love Red Fang, and so should you. The beer-swilling Portlanders, responsible for the greatest music video ever made (after the jump, along with dates for their early 2014 European tour), have made a game, the aim of which is to not spill your beer. We’re fucking shit at it (to be fair, we’re fucking shit at not spilling beer in real life as well). Play it here, and then buy everything Red Fang have ever done, they’re fucking fantastic. Their new album Whales And Leeches is out on October 15th and is brill.

Over at IGN they’ve unearthed footage from what was going to be a Snake “Escape From New York” Plissken game, featuring Kurt Russell and set for release in 2005. They never finished it, which is proof that the world is evil and rubbish and that people suck. Snake Plissken, man.
PS. If you haven’t seen Escape From New York, watch Escape From New York. Then watch Big Trouble In Little China. Then watch everything else with Kurt Russell in it. He’s fuckin’ rad.
There’s been a load of South Park games in the past (remember Chef’s Luv Shack?) but The Stick Of Truth looks like it’s gonna be better – or at least funnier – than the rest. The official description says: “From the perilous battlefields of the fourth-grade playground, a young hero will rise, destined to be South Park’s saviour. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes an epic quest to become cool.” Pretty ambiguous, but watch the trailer and if you’re not laughing then you’re not invited to our birthday party.
It’s out in December – JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!!!
THE WORLD OF GAMING HAS JUST EATEN ITSELF. THERE IS NO MORE.
(Note: This spoils a wee bit of GTA V, so don’t watch it if you’re a superdick).
We had a chat with the band with either the best or worst name in music to talk about the best video games of all time. We’ve gotta say, it’s hard to argue with some of these choices. What do you reckon?
