Why Don't Starve moved away from free-to-play

Klei's Don't Starve grew into a gaming phenomenon last year, with its whimsically unique take on survival. But the wilderness survival game didn't always look like it did when lead designer Kevin Forbes first presented the idea to Shacknews back in 2012. In fact, Don't Starve was originally envisioned as a free-to-play adventure.

PlayStation Camera shortage caused by Twitch's popularity on PS4

PlayStation Camera shortage caused by Twitch's popularity on PS4

The PlayStation Camera for PS4 isn't supported by many games. Yet, why is it so hard to find in stores? In fact, it's been in such high demand that retailer GameStop actually increased the price on the hard-to-find peripheral, bumping it up from $60 to $70.

The camera already has a 15% attach rate, Sony's Chris Norden revealed at a GDC panel. With over 6 million PS4s sold, that means nearly a million cameras have already been sold. But why is there so much demand for a peripheral that isn't really used in any games?

Infamous: Second Son review: over-powered

Infamous: Second Son review: over-powered

After two (and a half) games, Sucker Punch has the core of Infamous down to a science. Firing off shots, lobbing bombs, and roaming an open city in Infamous: Second Son is as fun as it ever was in the prior two games. In fact, it's all so immediately recognizable that it feels as if the series has hit a creative rut, even as the fundamentals remain solid.
