Who here remembers PlayStation Underground? Yeah, fun times right? Well, for those of you too young for that -- before the PlayStation Network existed, PlayStation gamers had this little thing called PlayStation Underground. It contained tips, tricks, news, and demo disks all in one convenient magazine.

PlayStation Underground ran from 1997 to 2001, where it merged with the now-defunct Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine which merged into now defunct PlayStation: The Official Magazine.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Underground has returned to the throne of PlayStation news, as an online show.

The first episode is above, and features a lengthy playthrough of Harmonix's upcoming game Amplitude. The three hosts are joined by Nick Chester, Harmonix's PR man for some four-player action, then have a jolly good time.

See kids? This is what demos used to look like!

On the official PlayStation Blog, they explain further that they are currently planning to release new Underground episodes every other week, and increase that to weekly in the "near future". They also promise:

"If you tune into Underground in the coming months, expect to see upcoming game previews, and hear insider details from the best and brightest in the gaming community.

Underground is just getting started, so you can expect a few things to change over the coming months as we fall into a rhythm of our own and tidy up the place. But for now, please sit back, fetch a refreshing beverage, and enjoy.

We have a lot more to show you." -

We wish the team at PlayStation Underground the best of luck, and look forward to seeing the show grow.

Guess Who's Back? Johnny Gat! Fri, 19 Jul 2013 08:23:50 -0400 Pierre Fouquet

Recently a trailer has surfaced which has the world in a storm! It may be simply the most mind blindingly amazing piece of...[cue the sound of a vinyl needle being pulled out]....Hold on just one second.

Right, sorry about that, fanboyisum took over for a second.

So a trailer has recently been released for Saints Row 4, no shock there, but this one is different; it's the trailer about series veteran and one of the most loved characters in Saints Row, Johnny Gat, and his return.

Yes, you heard that correctly, he is alive--if you haven't played Saints Row: The Third, then you might not have known it, but Johnny Gat was believed to have died. If you want to find out how, get Saints Row: The Third, or look up some videos about it. Google will help.

So Johnny is back, is this good news, or bad news, let me know in the comments below.

The link to the UK trailer is here, and US trailer here.
