about X hours ago from

While the PlayStation 4 may be in the home stretch of its lifespan, 2018 was a major year for the PS4 with the launch of titles like God of War and Marvel's Spider-Man, and 2019 is poised to be a strong year for the console as well. Cyberpunk 2077, The Last of Us Part II, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are just a few of the major titles we can look forward to this year, and that means if you're still not a PS4 owner, it's absolutely not too late to pick up this console.

The PS4 Slim, which originally launched with a 500GB hard drive but is now available with 1TB of storage, normally sells for $300. Luckily, you can save a few bucks if you seal the deal today: Using the promo code EMCTVVA36, you can pick up the PS4 Slim with a 1TB hard drive for $30 off at Newegg, dropping the price to $270 (free shipping included).

The sale is running for today only, so act fast if you want to take advantage of the deal. Once you're a proud PS4 owner, get busy with these top-rated PS4 games from last year; plus, put these upcoming releases on your radar.

A Nintendo Direct presentation focused on Pokemon will air this week, Nintendo announced today. The livestream promises to bring "roughly seven minutes of new information" as part of a livestream, though it's unclear whether this might involve a Gen 8 reveal or something else entirely.

The Pokemon-themed Direct is scheduled for Wednesday, February 27 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM GMT (1 AM AET on February 28).

New Detective Pikachu Trailer Is Packed With Action, Laughs, And Many Pokemon

The new trailer for Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is here. The live-action movie based on the hugely popular game series releases in May and stars Ryan Reynolds as the world-famous yellow Pokemon.

While November's first trailer set up the world of the movie, this new one gives us plenty of plot and action. A famous private detective has gone missing, leading his son Tim to start investigating what has happened to him.

There's tons of wild action, plus some more Pokemon cameos, including Ludicolo, Mr. Mime, Loudred, Jigglypuff, and Mewtwo. Check it out above.

The cast also includes Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Kathryn Newton (Blockers), Ken Watanabe (Godzilla, Inception), and Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). Detective Pikachu is directed by Rob Letterman, who previously helmed Goosebumps, Captain Underpants, and Shark Tale. The movie hits theaters on May 10, 2019. A new poster has also been released, which you can see at the end of this story.

Trials Rising Review Roundup

about X hours ago from

Trials Rising's release date has finally arrived, with the series' unique biking gameplay returning to PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and coming to Nintendo Switch for the first time. In fact, it's the first Trials game to ever come to a Nintendo console.

The franchise's last game, Trials Fusion, was warmly received upon its 2014 launch, but how does the latest entry fare? GameSpot's Trials Rising review awards the game a 7/10, and you can see more reviews below. Alternatively, check out GameSpot sister site Metacritic for a wider view of the game's critical consensus.

"Trials Rising maintains the engrossing, challenging, and occasionally slapstick gameplay from past entries in the series, building upon it in small ways with a smartly implemented school to teach fundamental skills and modifiers to make events worth revisiting. But it also doesn't fix issues from the past, either. Its track editor remains uninviting to learn, and the more outrageous stunt events and course obstacles frustratingly lean more into random luck than calculated skill. Trials Rising isn't a reinvention of the franchise--it's an invitation to lose more hours to new exhilarating, technical, and ridiculous Trials courses." -- Alessandro Barbosa [Full review]
