REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Tell GR: Ouya? Shield? Piston? Are these really new "consoles"?

Posted on Tuesday, January 8 @ 16:30:00 Eastern by

CES 2013 is on as we speak and that means electronics companies from around the world are debuting hardware and software they hope will quickly gain traction in the gaming medium. The big players? The Razer Shield, the so-called "Steam Box" Piston, and (just for discussions sake) the Ouya android console.

These three would-be consoles combine portability, ease of use, and an aggressively shrinking form-factor. The Razor Shield comes with a touch-screen for personal play, but also pushes your game's graphics to your big screen TV. The Piston "Steam-Box" console plays PC games and promises upgradeability. Razer also has a tablet they claim will function as a fully-fledged gaming PC.

But can they really handle themselves in the gaming industry?

I couldn't care less. The shield looks like an N-Gage and the Piston Steam-Box might turn some heads, but it'll never separate the Master Race and their glowing towers of power. Ouya? Ooh-no. Thus, my question(s) to you this week:

Can these new hardware options destabalize the current market? What are your thoughts on the Ouya, Shield, and Piston?

Every Tuesday, Tell GameRevolution poses a pertinent industry-wide question to the always entertaining GR community. Don't forget to rate each other's comments for our round-up on GR Radio and The People Speak showcase!
