Fix – Dual Shock 4 No Longer Connects To PS4

Ren And Stimpy Angry DadI like my PS4, but damn does it cause me headaches. Here is a problem I came just across, My DS4 controller that I use exclusively with my PS4 decided it didn’t want to connect to the PS4.

E3 2014 – Final Thoughts

Nonspecific Action Figure ApprovesE3 is over, and it wasn’t a bad year. While most of what was shown was previously known there were a few pleasant surprises. There were some neat new IPs announced but no real left-field show-stealers (such as Scribblenauts and Watch Dogs in previous years) this year. I can guess that the next 24 months should be pretty good for games.
