Lords of the Fallen (PlayStation 4)

Harkyn and soul

With the spawn of the Souls series, gamers around the world have developed a soft spot for controller breaking games with horrendously difficult barriers of entry. Lords of the Fallen is Polish studio CI Games' first attempt at imitating the franchise's success – but does it stand up to its competitors? While the Souls series...

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires Marches an Army onto PS4 and PS3 Sooner Than You Think

Tactical

It's getting to the point where we can't blame people for saying that there are too many Warriors titles flooding the market. 2014 itself has had an abundance of the things, and now, just when things appeared to be quiet after the release of the superb Samurai Warriors 4, publisher Koei Tecmo has gone ahead and announced that tactically...

Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Not-so hidden relic

At this point, it’s probably fairly safe to assume that there will be an Uncharted Collection on the PlayStation 4. Sony has said that it doesn’t want to flood the market with re-releases, but does want to provide people that didn’t own a PlayStation 3 with an opportunity to play some of the previous generation’s best...

Costume Quest 2 Really Will Skip Hallowe'en on PS4, PS3 in Europe

No fun allowed

Y’know, if we worked at Double Fine, we’d probably be spitting our pumpkin pie all over the office carpet right now. Costume Quest 2 was announced for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 this week – complete with exclusive Sackboy content no less – but when it was mentioned that SCEE hadn’t finalised a release date yet, we...

News: Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Yes, there are

Sony doesn’t tend to understand the concept of patch notes. While it will always detail the major changes included as part of a numbered firmware update, it frequently throws in hidden extras. This has been the case since the early days of the PlayStation 3, and just because it’s got a fancy new piece of hardware on the market, it...

Push Scare: Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Dead but not buried

It's no secret that I hate horror. I don't read horror, I don't watch horror, and I certainly don't play horror. I'm not entirely sure why, but I just don't see the appeal in scaring myself stupid. That said, Hallowe'en has always interested me – not because of its modern relation to ghosts and ghouls and gore, but because of...

Can't Turn on Your PS4 from Rest Mode? Here's How to Fix Firmware Update 2.00 Issue

Solution to standby power problems

While we appreciate that we’re probably jinxing things by writing this, PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 appears to have launched without too many setbacks. Bricked consoles are always a concern with enormous operating system overhauls like this one, but the system software refresh seems to have deployed...

29th October 2014 (Europe)

Late to the party

As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor. Indeed, where the heck is Costume Quest 2? A game designed around Hallowe’en should arrive before said event, and if your humble host doesn’t get his...

Ubisoft Reckons You Wouldn't Want to Play an Assassin's Creed Game Set in Feudal Japan

A code of honour

For quite a while now, fans of Assassin's Creed have been pondering a title set in the East. An oriental excursion always sounded like a neat idea to us, but Ubisoft thinks it may be something that wouldn't hold much appeal. Speaking to Total Xbox, Assassin's Creed III creative director Alex Hutchinson remarked that a feudal...
