  • News PS5's Devkit Looks Like an Alien Spaceship in 3D Mock Ups

    That's not necessarily a bad thing, by the way

    You may be forgiven for missing the news, but the PlayStation 5’s devkit casually leaked this week. Corroborated by a Codemasters employee, the blueprints show a ridiculously shaped system, decorated with a ventilated ‘V’ symbol on its hood. It’s unlikely that the final consumer product will...

  • News Streets of Rage 4 Is Looking Like a Seriously Superb Sequel

    Binner binner chicken dinner

    There are three universal laws in life: you’ll pay taxes, you’ll die, and you’ll love at least one Streets of Rage game. The old SEGA Mega Drive beat-‘em-ups are cult classics: they had style, swagger, and seriously filthy synthgrime soundtracks. The upcoming Streets of Rage 4 has a very different artstyle to its...

    When Yakuza 3 was brought West for the PlayStation 3 back in 2010, SEGA infamously cut a sizeable amount of side content from the game. This content, which was available in the Japanese version of the release, was removed because SEGA basically didn't think it would gel with Western audiences -- or at least, that...

  • Poll Has Gamescom 2019 Lived Up to Your Expectations?

    Did you even have expectations?

    The general feeling around the Push Square office is that Gamescom 2019 has been pretty darn dull. Much like E3 earlier in the year, it feels like publishers are now holding back for next-gen -- the bottom line is that there just isn't much new stuff to show. In fact, you could say that things have felt muted 2019 in...

However, as you'd expect, Night City is supposed to be much more dense than the fields, forests, and valleys of Geralt's...
