It's Always Sunny in Los Santos

A return trip to Los Santos on the PlayStation 4 was inevitable, given Grand Theft Auto V's gigantic success on Sony's previous home console.

Blood Sport Is Probably the Worst Kickstarter Idea Ever

Bloody hell

It takes a special kind of Kickstarter campaign to make this author feel squeamish, but as your humble host taps out this story, let it be known that his skin has turned a subtle shade of green.

Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a PS4 This Holiday

Perfect moment

We’re often guilty of forgetting that not everyone owns a PlayStation 4 yet. While there’s no doubt that Sony’s next-gen system has raced out of the gates like an American shopper looking for a decent deal on Black Friday, the Japanese giant has only shipped a total of 13.5 million units to date. That means that

Clicker along

Tales from the Borderlands PS4, PS3 Reviews Crack a Joke

Apparently not Claptrap

Seeing as Borderlands is about as funny as being slapped around the face with a wet fish, we were always sceptical of Tales from the Borderlands. The latest episodic series from Telltale Games strips out the first-person shooting from Gearbox’s titles – and focuses instead upon the people of Pandora. Sounds like a...

Home (PlayStation 4)

Home is where the heart is

Home is the side-scrolling mystery from one-man indie developer Benjamin Rivers. It’s an intriguing title with some horror elements thrown in for good measure, as well as a ‘choose your own adventure’ narrative.
