I Once Hit a Hole-In-One While Taking a Poop

Check out the greatest shot I've ever made in Hot Shots Golf. What makes it so special to me, is that I did this while taking a deuce at work.

Remember When We Beat The Brains Out of The Beast Mode Podcast in Battlefield 3?

In this once thought lost footage, the Ruff Ryderz celebrate a championship over the now defunct Beast Mode Gaming Podcast crew, after they rage quit the match.

You can check out their new venture The Zero Tolerance Podcast over at PunandGame.com. The Ruff Ryderz will be waiting to crush them once they step up to the plate.

Good Times!

Review: Killzone: Mercenary (PS Vita/PlayStation TV)

I haven't been this frustrated with a game in a very long time. I picked up Killzone: Mercenary a while ago and over the past year I've played it on and off. The other day I finally finished it and couldn't delete it fast enough.

April PSN Flash Sale Must Buys

Here are the must buy games in the April PSN Flash Sale:

Why Doesn't PS Vita Remote Play Work Like The Wii U?

When remote play was announced I was all like,
but it never really lived up to the hype on the PSP and PlayStation 3.

When it was implemented on the PS Vita and the PlayStation 4 I was like,
but again I was disappointed.

When I got my Wii U and saw the gamepad for the first time I was like,
but Nintendo had done it right. It doesn't have the range of remote play and you cannot use it through the net. But, it just works. It's seemless with responsive controls and no pixelation. When you walk too far away from the Wii U the controller just cuts off the video completely and tells you to go back to whence you came.

Recently Sony introduced remote play with the PC. Steam has had this for a while and it works pretty good as long as your have a decent PC and a nice connection. I've ran through Black Mesa this way and didn't have any problems. Why doesn't remote play on the Vita and the PS4 work this well?

Some people say it's your internet or router that's the issue.
I think I have found the solution. Hey Sony just make it work! It's 2016 and if man can live in a multiverse then you can get remote play to not lag out. Get on it!

Should I sell my PS4 before it becomes worthless?

It could be time to sell your PS4. The rumored specs of the PlayStation 4.5 (codenamed NEO) might make the current PS4 obsolete and utterly worthless. Giant Bomb and Eurogamer are both confirming the same information, but what does this mean for your current PS4?

MLB The Show 16: Sliders or Bust

I love stats and I love sports so baseball was invented for someone like me. For a while now I've picked up MLB The Show and every year is the same, I have to update the sliders to get the perfect simulation experience without sacrificing fun. If you're just looking for stats Out of the Park Baseball is what you need, but if you want more interaction, then maybe getting under the hood of The Show is in order.

It all goes down like this. I get the game on or around day one and play it for an hour or two. I always think to myself, "wow this plays great out of the box. I may not have to change a thing". Then I sit down to play more and little things start to stand out. I don't give up or get any walks, I haven't hit a home run in 5 games or my batting average is sub .200. That's when I start my yearly search for a slider set that works for me. I need something that gives me stats that mirror the real MLB but also tricks me into the feeling that I'm good at the game. They also cannot make the game feel easy. It can be difficult to find a balance, but when you find something that works it can take the game to new levels of enjoyment.

Review: MLB The Show 16

I've heard many people say the hardest thing to do in sports is hit a baseball. I somewhat agree with one caveat. The hardest thing to do in sports is hit a baseball in MLB The Show 16.

I think I hate The Division

The other day I hit level 30 in The Division and I think I hate the game now. According to the start screen I've played over 60 hours of this game and for the most part I have savored every moment. I was rolling with a crew that consisted of wanna be podcaster and now grown ass man killjoy, King_Bowser of the Zero Tolerance Podcast and occasionally geran42o. We were a crew to be reckoned with. Slamming out missions was fun and escaping the DZ with mad loot was better. But it's all gone, all because I needed to hit level 30 and experience the delicious yellow guns.

We're Back: The Return of The PlayStation Show Podcast (April Fools)


As many of you have noticed there has been a lot of activity here at ThePlayStationShow.com. We have a brand new logo, a refresh on the website and new content showing up about once a week. All of this has been happening with one thought in mind, bringing back The PlayStation Show Podcast.

In 2008 when we started the podcast we had no idea that it would run for 100 plus episodes.We basically did 3 straight years of weekly episodes for your listening pleasure. That kind of consistency can be hard to maintain. At the end, as we stepped away from TPSS, the Rogue Gamer was born and had a nice run but it wasn't The PlayStation Show. Now years later we're ready to come back.

It is my pleasure to announce The PlayStation Show Podcast will be returning on a weekly basis starting NOW!!!
