|What if the Sony PSP Succeeded?|

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "Welcome to the penultimate edition in our series of what if articles and the only one to feature a handheld game system the Sony PSP. But wait, wasnt the PSP a hit for Sony and a fan favorite? Well yes, the system was a massive success for Sony and helped them spread the PlayStation brand to a whole new audience of players, so why is the PSP getting its own entry on this list when it is (by far) the best-selling and received system in this series? Well in a lot of ways, despite its success the PSP never really attained any of its core goals (to challenge Nintendo for handheld dominance and usher in a new multimedia standard for on the go entertainment) and the way the PSPs twilight years were handled essentially set up its successor to fail. So while not a train-wreck (like the other consoles we discussed) things definitely could have gone a lot better for Sonys first handheld."
|The Fall Part 2: Unbound Review - Nothing Binds Me | Switch Era|

Joshua from SwitchEra writes: "2014s The Fall happened to be a cult hit when it came out. However, developer Over the Moon decided that they were going to turn its story into a trilogy. Little did fans know that it would take around four years to get the second installment. In all that time, its important that the developers not only deliver on the story that captivated their audience in the first place, but improve on the criticisms that prevented it from being outstanding."

|Why You Should Not Play Giant Machines 2017 From Your Backlog|

BacklogCritic: "I am quite obviously not the targeted audience for this game, but I went into it with an open mind and did my best to get into the simulation genre. Even though its really cool to see all these massive machines and explore what they actually do, I dont think even the most hardened simulator fans will be able to stomach the painstakingly slow-paced gameplay. Everything moves at a snails pace and the repetitive tasks grow tiresome very quickly."
