Plus, our final thoughts

After absolutely hammering The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited PlayStation 4 beta virtually all weekend, we're actually a bit sad to see it go.

Rest in peace

Konami danced around the prospect of Silent Hills' cancellation in a statement released earlier today, but in a comment to Kotaku, it's placed a final nail in the coffin.

Mixed feelings

Don't pull that face. Yes, we know Push Rewind is very much a Sunday night staple – but this weekend was an abnormally busy one for everyone in the office, so cut us some slack. It goes without saying, then, that there's a lot to recap in this week's feature, including the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Are you...

Tekken 7 Gets a Brand New Character, Could Be One of the Strangest Yet

Gigantic power

We're not quite sure what to make of Gigas, Tekken 7's newly announced combatant. The franchise is no stranger to weird and wonderful characters, of course, with its playable roster including the likes of Roger the boxing kangaroo, Kuma the fighting bear, and Yoshimitsu the seemingly eternal warrior - just to name a few - but Gigas...

How  Brutal Is The Elder Scrolls Online's Combat in Its PS4 Beta?

Plus, we take a look at character progression

Review: LA Cops (PlayStation 4)

LA Cops (PlayStation 4)

D'oh-nuts

Hotline Miami's not necessarily the kind of game that you'd expect to attract a string of copycats, but LA Cops follows developer Dennaton's brutal blueprint down to the most specific of details. You play as one of six clichéd LAPD law enforcers, with your objective to bring justice to some of America's most wanted. You'll do this by...
