Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Reviews Rule the Ring

Precious

Licensed games are, by and large, atrocious — especially when they're related to J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy franchise Lord of the Rings. That doesn't appear to be the case with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, however, as the tasty tie-in has proved more Gandalf than Gollum.

OlliOlli 2 Brings Skateboarding Shenanigans to PS4 and Vita in 2015

This is not a drill

OlliOlli is one of the PlayStation Vita's hidden gems; a game so infectiously addictive that it should probably be outlawed. So with this in mind, we're delighted - if slightly concerned - to report that the indie darling will be receiving a sequel.

Power Is Everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

Thank goodness for that

Considering it’s arguably the biggest video game franchise on the planet, it’s been a bit of a shame to see Call of Duty slip behind its peers – both in terms of stale gameplay, and practically rancid visuals.

Sony may have shut down legendary WipEout developer Studio Liverpool, but that hasn’t stopped a number of new UK teams from rising out of the organisation’s ashes.

Bigger than Ben Hur

At a recent DICE talk attended by Polygon, Sony big-wig Dave Ranyard spoke at length about the firm's upcoming virtual reality headset, Project Morpheus.

This Dude Has Played Way More Destiny Than You Have

First in the world to hit Level 30

We figured that it was impossible for any one person to have played more Destiny than our very own Robert Ramsey, who currently has images of his tough looking Titan tattooed to the insides of his eyelids so that they’re never apart. However, it turns out that it’s true, as American gaming god Mark Edward...

What's the Best Price for FIFA 15 PS4 in the UK?

Less than Andy Carroll

FIFA 15 is undoubtedly the biggest new release of the week – especially if you happen to be fond of the beautiful game.
