Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel (PS4)

Blast this patchwork world

Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is the latest fighter to take to the PlayStation 4, featuring 12 characters from the visual novels of Tokyo-based Nitroplus.

Opinion: Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game.

Not a Hero (PS4)

Diplomatic immunity

Aptly titled, Not a Hero is a charismatic, side-scrolling shoot-'em-up in which you massacre mobsters, thugs, and other underworld villains in the name of BunnyLord – an anthropomorphic purple rabbit who is currently running for mayor.

Space truckers

Space sims can be daunting affairs. Their mind boggling complexity often means that they're more at home on the PC than consoles, and anyone that's invested time in gaming black holes like Elite: Dangerous or EVE Online, will freely admit they're not to everyone's taste. So, what if you're the sort of person who wouldn't mind blasting...

Patch me up, doc

Fallout 4's patch 1.3 has emerged from its beta testing stage on PC, and will be available on PlayStation 4 later this week, Bethesda has revealed.
