French Magazine Honours PS4's Incredible E3 2015

The greatest of all time

Not everyone was as jazzed as us at Sony's incredible E3 2015 press conference, but those born during a certain era will have understood the significance of the event. At times, the platform holder's media briefing bordered on fan fiction, with The Last Guardian, Shenmue III, and Final Fantasy VII Remake all appearing during...

Media Molecule Dreaming Up Dreams Beta Trial for PS4

Expect more details at Paris Games Week

There's still some confusion over what Dreams actually is. Media Molecule's brand new project was officially announced at E3 2015 and received a mixed response; the Guildford-based developer was intentionally vague about the title, and that's perhaps resulted in some scepticism around the web. However, it...

Yu and Rise Step It Up In Persona 4 Dancing All Night's English Trailers

Dance for the truth

Persona 4 Dancing All Night is coming West later this year, and to be totally honest, we can't wait to give it a go. Sure, the idea of dancing to save your high school buddies is just a few steps away from being overly ridiculous, but when the game looks as fun as this, it's hard to care. With the title's launch creeping ever...

LEGO Jurassic World (PS4)

LEGOsaurus

These days, if a brand finds itself considered pop-culture then there are two eventualities that are almost a certainty. Firstly, the inevitable onslaught of Funko Pop Vinyl figurines that casts every single character in cute and irritatingly adorable plastic models. Secondly, a LEGO game, incidentally involving irritatingly adorable...

Undead

Just when you thought that the industry's obsession with the undead was over, Ubisoft has seemingly decided to re-release one-time Wii U exclusive ZombiU on the PlayStation 4.

War does change

Speaking with The Telegraph, Bethesda's always approachable Todd Howard has spilled some more details regarding Fallout 4.

The Teen Who Ruined PS4's Christmas Narrowly Avoids Jail

Convicted of over 50,000 computer crimes

Do you remember when the PlayStation Network went down? No, we don't mean last night – we're talking about the last major outage, which occurred over Christmas. Sony's servers were down for days, and while the whole sorry affair was good for our traffic ticker, it didn't exactly reflect well on the platform...

Season pass owners can enjoy the add-on from the 14th July, while it'll be sold separately from the 21st July. In any case, if your interest has been...

Review: Oh, Deer! (PS Mobile)

Oh, Deer! (PS Mobile)

Buck up

There's no doubt about it: Oh, Deer!'s got ample game – just not necessarily the right kind. NecroSoft's last hurrah for Sony's ill-fated PlayStation Mobile initiative epitomises everything that the programme should have stood for: it's accessible, affordable, and utterly outlandish. And yet despite all of that, it's more of a proof of...

Gaze Upon 4 Minutes of an Epic Boss Fight in the Dragon's Dogma Online PS4 Beta

Eye for an eye

Bringing down giant monsters was always a treat in Dragon's Dogma on the PlayStation 3. The thud of their gargantuan bodies hitting the ground, accompanied by that oh-so-sweet musical melody made for special moments in an already special game, and it looks as though Dragon's Dogma Online features those very same moments...

Square Enix wants in on the Minecraft crowd

Last week, Square Enix was teasing a Dragon Quest announcement in Japan.

SEGA: We Want to Win Back Gamers' Trust

Quality over quantity

SEGA's reputation as a game publisher has been all but completely tarnished over the past ten or so years, thanks to a slew of lacklustre Sonic the Hedgehog sequels and an astoundingly poor job at importing Japanese hits to the Western market. The company seems to be trying to turn things around, though. In an interview with...
