SMITE PS4 Hints and Tips for Beginner Gods

SMITE up your life

MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) have had a massive impact on the PC gaming landscape as they collectively rode the growing wave of game streaming to become one of the industry's biggest genres.

Is It Scary Leaving Nathan Drake Behind in Uncharted 4 on PS4?

Naughty Dog talks a big game

It's been a gruelling three year wait, but Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is on the home straight.

Soapbox: Why I Don't Think PS4K Is Okay

Why I Don't Think PS4K Is Okay

Sony has 99 problems but 4K ain't one, says Sam Brooke

When rumours for the PlayStation 4K first appeared, I was pretty sure that it wasn't true. "Surely," my younger, unwise mind of a couple of weeks ago said. "Sony wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot by attempting to divide its fanbase." But, alas, here we are, with all signs pointing to a...

Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV Is Well Worth the Free Download on PS4

An interesting glimpse into the game

Announced during the Uncovered: Final Fantsy XV event, Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV is yet more evidence that Square Enix likes to come up with terrible names. It's also a rather interesting glimpse into the inner workings of Final Fantasy XV, and provides a pleasant little adventure to boot. As far as free...

Poll: Will You Be Buying Final Fantasy XV?

Will You Be Buying Final Fantasy XV?

Let's go on a road trip

Now that Final Fantasy XV finally has a release date and Square Enix has shared its plans for the game, we have to ask: will you be buying it this September?

Talking Point: Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?

Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?

4King hell

A wise man once said: there are no upgraded console rumours without PlayStation 4K – or something like that. The fact of the matter is that we've heard too much about Sony's hypothetical hardware half-step for it to not resemble some semblance of truth at this point; the question is whether the Japanese giant will actually decide to...

Does Bully Still Rule the School on PS4?

We don't need no education

Rockstar stealth released Bully, the legendary PlayStation 2 boarding school simulator, on the PlayStation 4 this week – and we've squeezed into our old uniform in order to put it through its paces. This port packs upgraded visuals and full Trophy support – but beware: the controls haven't exactly aged gracefully.

Soapbox: Why I Trust Sony to Do the Right Thing with PS4.5

Why I Trust Sony to Do the Right Thing with PS4.5

Sammy Barker's a believer – for now

Veterans of this website will know that it's rarely been as positive as it is now. Sony, in the pre-PlayStation 4 era, had a tendency to take one step forward and two steps back. Think about it: for every The Last of Us there was a Starhawk; for every forward-thinking initiative like PlayStation Plus there was...
