Burning Bodies in The Evil Within on PS4

You're Mikami crazy

When legendary developer and horror game kingpin Shinji Mikami first unleashed the T-Virus onto the PSone in 1996, he not only managed to popularise the genre with mainstream audiences, but also founded a blockbuster franchise that would go on to sell millions.

PS4 Puzzler The Swapper Is a Ridley Scott Meets Metroid Masterclass

Do the old switcheroo

Games are the perfect medium for escapism, transporting us anywhere from the depths of the ocean to the furthest reaches of the universe.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 27

Here comes the sun

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet – and already this editor is acting like a classic Brit by complaining about the scorching temperature outside.

Five Ways PS4 Can Keep the Lead in the Next-Gen Console Clash

In Theory, Could Titanfall Drop a Bot on PS4?

Sizeable speculation

The advent of the so-called industry insider – forum posters who build up a reputation among online communities such as NeoGAF for spilling the beans on secret information – means that the rumour mill is harder to navigate than ever these days. It’s always been difficult to pick the real leaks from the rubbish, but the...

Why Sony's Right to Retain the Franchises It Funds

Crash course

Insomniac Games announced its soda-based sandbox excursion Sunset Overdrive to an explosion of goodwill this week.
