From the simple Teletenis controller to the more recent PS Vita, gaming has come a long way not only in graphics and processing power, but also in the way that we control them. Where would we be if we didn’t decide that keyboards weren’t convenient enough and decided to make dedicated peripherals to control our games? What if the idea of a joystick never came to fruition? How about shoulder buttons? Or buttons at all, really? Javier Laspiur took pictures from every game controller he’s owned and compiled them all into one gallery. Head inside to find out more!

Take-Two released its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 on the fifth of this month, and the company came in with better-than-expected results. However there is some unfortunate news, as the company has taken a net loss of just over $35,000,000, meaning that they still aren't doing all that well. Truly a misfortune indeed.

Besides that loss though, we now have learned that the 4 vs 1 shooter Evolve will be delayed until February 10, 2015. Hopefully this delay will help the game live up to our expectations, or perhaps even surpass them. I personally don't want to expect too much from any game, but I feel that this is a good way to build up hype. What do you readers think?

It takes no stretch of the imagination to suggest that Electronic Arts is a controversial company. From winning back-to-back “Worst Company in America” ‘awards’ to the failure of Dungeon Keeper Mobile, it seems that every time something worrisome happens in the industry, EA seems to have a hand in it.

However, the company may have struck gold with EA Access. For better or worse, the publisher is owner to some of the biggest franchises in gaming, and with the success of PlayStation Now, it’s no wonder that EA has decided to take a shot at this subscription-based business model. At the end of the day, $30 per year to access what EA has promised to be an ever-expanding library of titles isn’t exactly what I’d call a bad deal. But what do you think? Can this endeavor take off, or has EA’s bad reputation done too much damage?

Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore has confirmed to CVG that once a game has been made available on EA Access, it will not be taken down, meaning that the pool of titles available to gamers once they’ve subscribed will only get bigger.

"I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made.” — Peter Moore

Currently the service, which is still in beta, offers Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and Peggle 2, but Moore has indicated that more games are to come. You’ll have to hit the jump to find out more!

Vigil Games is well known for creating the Darksiders franchise, but after parent company THQ went bankrupt, the studio was dissolved. The team wasn't out of work for long, as Crytek hired most of them on to form a new USA branch for the company. Unfortunately, that too ended, as most of Crytek USA was downsized. Even after all of this, many of the core members of the former Vigil team have stuck together after either being fired or resigning from Crytek USA. United under Vigil founder and former Crytek USA head David Adams, they have formed a new indie studio called Gunfire Games. Hit the jump to find out more!

Reports have been circulating for weeks that Crytek had stopped paying its employees (with some current and former Crytek employees stepping forward to state that they had not been paid in months), and at least two games, including a sequel to Ryse: Son of Rome, had been cancelled. Crytek's official statement on the whole mess was that this was all a transitional phase and that good news was on the way. Soon after this, Crytek closed its UK branch and downsized its USA branch in a move that laid off over one hundred employees.

Since then, Crytek CEO and founder Cevat Yerli has opened up about the rough period, stating that the financial troubles were the result of the company shifting away from the traditional AAA game model to an all free-to-play model. Yerli admitted that there were "the smallest delay[s]" in payment, but he didn't see it as a problem. According to Yerli, his employees were too impatient, and they should have just quit their jobs or gotten a loan from the bank. No, seriously. The real kicker is that Yerli claims that delaying payment was necessary because "our priority was to not let anybody lose their jobs." Hit the jump for Yerli's full statements.
