Review: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4)

For all the praise and hype Uncharted 4 has gotten I wanted to make sure that my readers could get the real truth about Uncharted 4. Here at ThePlayStationShow.com, we're not a bunch of corporate shills that are paid off to review games. We're gamers just like you. We put in a hard day's work and buy our games. We are the voice of the people and the people will be heard.

First off Uncharted 4 isn't a game. This isn't a thing you play. We are not children, with an action figure pretending to save the world. Games are for kids. I would never let Uncharted be referred to in that way. That would be like calling the Statue of Liberty just a statue. She is so much more than that. She's a symbol that represents a state of mind. When people look at Lady Liberty they stand in awe of her magnificence. She leaves a lasting impression on all those who gaze upon her grace.

What the moon landing did for man, Uncharted is doing for gaming: "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". Nathan Drake is this generation's Neil Armstrong. This is a pivotal moment in gaming history. Like a total solar eclipse of the heart, this is a rare point in time where everything changes.

Do you remember when Nintendo changed the landscape of home entertainment with the NES or when Sony launched the CD based system, the PlayStation? If you were there, then you were a part of history. That is the time in which we find ourselves now. Something that will be remembered and should be cherished, because these moments don't happen often.
I like to watch sports. I consider professional sports art at its highest form. Being able to watch athletes execute at the highest levels is the same experience as loading Uncharted 4 into your PS4. It's as if you have a copy of Stephen Curry in the palm of your hand and all you have to do it click the start button.

Uncharted 4 is like visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time. You think you know what it's like, you've read up on it and seen tons of pictures, but that moment you finally lay your eyes on one of the world's wonders, you realize that you had no idea what you were missing. Uncharted 4 should be considered a national treasure.

*Full Disclosure: I didn't buy the game and I have not played it.

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

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 th
