How quickly the time goes by, especially when you're playing video games.

Over at the Playstation Blog

they've begun celebrating the landmark anniversary of the first Playstation launch in America, which happened 20 years ago Sept. 9.

Those were exciting and pioneering times for all of us: new technology, the arcade experience in the home, and no guarantee that we would still be around come the turn of the century –- or sooner. Exciting times indeed.

But we did make it. And thanks to the dedication and passion of the greatest gaming community of all time, the PlayStation Nation, we are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the original PlayStation system, which officially launched in North America on September 9th, 1995. At its launch, PlayStation was a stylish, powerful, developer-friendly game console that popularized polygonal 3D graphics and CD playback of games and music.



Do you have any memories of that launch? Any favorite PS1 games?

It seems like it's been a while since the great Bloodborne's February release and we're certainly looking for a reason to return to Yarnham.

Luckily, the game's first DLC expansion, called The Old Hunters, was announced on the Playstation blog Sept. 15.



Set in a nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever, explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to overcome. You'll find multiple new outfits and weapons to add to your arsenal as well as additional magic to wield and add more variety to your combat strategy.

With new story details, learn the tale of hunters who once made Yharnam their hunting grounds, meet new NPCs, and discover another side of the history and world of Bloodborne. Here's a brief glimpse of just some of what lies in store for you when The Old Hunters launches on November 24th, including Simon's Bowblade weapon, and new boss enemy Ludwig.



The Old Hunters will release on Nov. 24 for $19.99, only on Playstation 4.

We're right in the middle of a giant wave of superhero movies, with four studios vying for box office dollars. One of the biggest complaints in this trend thus far, is the apparent lack of leading ladies. The two biggest contenders, Marvel and DC, have failed to produce any non-white male solo characters, but now the race is on.

Deadline is announcing that Sony has hired Lisa Joy Nolan, writer of Burn Notice, to pen a solo film for a female hero from their Amazing Spider-Man franchise to be released in 2017. The most-likely candidate, as she appeared briefly in Amazing Spider-Man 2, is Felicity Jones as Black Cat.

This news comes on the heels of Marvel head, Kevin Fiege, hoping that their first female driven superhero picture (hopefully Captain Marvel) will "come sooner rather than later", and DC's announcement that a solo Wonder Woman film is also scheduled for 2017.

2017 better prepare itself, it's shaping up to be the summer of super heroines.
