Need for Speed Fails to Hit First Gear on PS4

Sick

When you're forced to recycle old subtitles, you know that it's time that your brand got a reboot.

Push Square's PGW 2015 Game of the Show - Detroit: Become Human

Braving The Evil Within's Season Pass on PS4

Ruvik's cube

Survival horror games are part of a somewhat niche genre that constantly break moulds and, in the process, either make unexpected, monumental strides in innovation or uproarious setbacks by straying too far into other genres.

Our Paris Games Week 2015 Predictions Were on the Money

Gloat away

Warning: intolerable back slapping incoming. We don't normally look back on our press conference predictions in too much detail – usually because we're wrong – but we called Paris Games Week 2015 pretty darn impressively. Don't believe us? Go back and re-read our original article – and no, we haven't edited it after the fact...

It's time to wrap a big fat bow around our Paris Games Week 2015 coverage – well, until we've got some kip anyway. How's that for some English slang, American readers? We digress.

Yay, it's PlayStation press conference time. It may sound sad, but we were really put out by Sony's limited presence at Gamescom earlier in the year.
