News: Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go Smoothly

Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go Smoothly

One individual had to be ejected

By and large, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has prompted a pretty damn positive response – but not everyone is in love with the PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while criticisms of its pacing and platforming may be more than fair, comments about the gender of some of its characters are less reasonable. However, that's...

Bethesda Actively Working on Improvements for Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Framerate

Fog of war

Our review of Fallout 4: Far Harbor went live this week, heavily criticising the add-on's performance on the PlayStation 4. Many argued that we should have given the expansive expansion a pass considering the quality of the content contained within, but we believe that critical framerate issues such as those encountered in this instance...

Review: LUMO (PS4)

LUMO (PS4)

Old school of magic

One thing that's evident from the outset of Gareth Noyce's isometric puzzler is the focus on nostalgia. Noyce is somewhat of an industry veteran working for a number of studios over the past 15 years, including the recently closed Lionhead, Geometry Wars creators Bizarre, and Realtime Worlds. Ostensibly an homage to isometric...

Final Fantasy XV Director Had to Tell Development Team to 'Wake Up'

Tabata talks about "Final Fantasy disease"

Before Final Fantasy Versus XII was rebranded as Final Fantasy XV, current director Hajime Tabata was brought in as head of the project to get the game back on track following years of troubled development. Would Final Fantasy XV as we know it be releasing on the 30th September without him? Probably not...

Valkyria Chronicles Soundtrack Mobilises on iTunes for the First Time Outside Japan

"Squad 7, move out!"

You might have missed it amid the excitement over Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch, but Sega launched Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on the PS4 recently. A loving re-release of one of the finest PS3 exclusives, this new offering is accompanied by the first western release of the game's excellent soundtrack, composed by the...

Review: Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PS4)

Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PS4)

Fogging hell

The fog of Far Harbor is to be feared. It inflicts radiation poisoning on those who dare to trek through it, it gives birth to horribly slimy creatures of the deep, and it does an admirable job of obscuring your view of the fiends that stalk the wilderness. The island's residents have a right to fear the mist: it keeps them penned...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Clings on to Top Spot

Gold

Sony's enjoying a real strong spell at the top of the UK sales charts, as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the latest title from the publisher to enjoy successive weeks at the summit. Sales for Nate Drake's latest did drop sharply after its record breaking launch, meaning that DOOM was clipping at its heels – but Naughty Dog's outstanding...

Review: Soft Body (PS4)

Soft Body (PS4)

Paint the night

You'd be forgiven for thinking Soft Body is a very unambitious game at first glance. The simple 2D graphics give the impression of a simple Flash game, however upon digging deeper we found that it's incredibly ambitious in its attempt to bring two genres together as one. Soft Body blends the action/puzzle genre with a twin-stick...

Review: Shadwen (PS4)

Shadwen (PS4)

Shatwen

Shadwen is a third-person stealth-action game that begins with the implied murder of a king at the hands of a skilled female assassin. As the monarch's crown falls to the ground, we see the face of a young girl travelling with the killer, and the game flashes back to a
