Lie, cheat, steal

After the latest disappointment in the colossal WWE series, wrestling game fans may have found solace in the knowledge that a fresh contender was on the way to challenge for the genre's crown.

Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (PlayStation 4)

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (PlayStation 4)

Dead good

Resident Evil's been in a bit of a rut of late, and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 never looked like it was going to break that cycle prior to release. With dated visuals, dodgy dialogue, and rudimentary third-person shooting, the title didn't exactly put its best foot forward in press previews. But this spin-off – a successor to the...

Batman: Arkham Knight Evens the Odds with 7 Minutes of Brand New Gameplay

Explosive results

It's all getting a bit dark today isn't it? After news that Batman: Arkham Knight's release date has been delayed, there's now seven minutes of new gameplay stalking the streets of YouTube. Showcasing the Batmobile, the caped crusader's swooping prowess, and some fast paced combat, the trailer provides a good look at the Bat's...

DriveClub Developer Evolution Studios to Lose Around Half of Workforce

Dark days

Evolution Studios will lose around 55 team members, sources have told Eurogamer.net. It was announced last week that the Runcorn-based outfit would be struck by layoffs, but now we have an idea of just how hard. The developer, which is currently supporting PlayStation 4 exclusive DriveClub, is roughly 100 staffers strong, so this will...

Yes, There's Scheduled PlayStation Network Maintenance Today

Try not to worry

The PlayStation Network's going to be undergoing some scheduled maintenance later today, Sony's announced. It's short notice, that's for sure, but it'll only last approximately two hours. Although having said that, the company's post also states that there may be some "additional downtime" after the maintenance is complete. Don't...

Final Fantasy XV Has Massive Potential

Don't screw this up

To be totally honest, we're still having trouble coming to terms with the fact that we've actually played something related to Final Fantasy XV. If you've been keeping up with the game's development, all the way back since it was announced almost ten years ago, then we imagine that you'll feel the same. Episode Duscae, the...

Push Rewind: Hideo Kojima Kerfuffle, God of War III Remastered, and Battlefield Hardline

Hideo Kojima Kerfuffle, God of War III Remastered, and Battlefield Hardline

Down like a domino

This week really sparked into life about midway through. Just as our servers went offline, rumours started to circulate that Hideo Kojima had been ousted out of Konami, and it's been non-stop since then. God of War III Remastered was announced on Friday, while we took our time on retail servers to review Battlefield Hardline...

Bloodborne's PS4 Pre-Load Is Ready to Go in North America

Nothing in Europe yet

You're going to need all of the time that you can get with Bloodborne next week – especially with those terrifying loading screens. As such, it's nice that Sony's deployed the pre-load ahead of the title's 24th March launch, with enthusiastic consumers in North America noting that the release is being downloaded to their hard...

Review: Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4)

Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4)

Battlefield Vice

We all know what police officers are like, don't we? If semi-documentaries like The Wire, CSI, The Shield, and A Touch of Frost are anything to go by, there's barely a person in law enforcement on either side of the pond that isn't addicted to meth and good-hearted hookers. As easy as it is for us to identify with these fictional...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode Four: Metamorphosis (PlayStation 4)

Dumb and dumber

Pin back your decaying lugholes and listen for a second: there are two endings to Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and one will leave you feeling significantly more satisfied than the other. In what's perhaps a nod to survival horror games of old, there's a throwaway choice in an earlier episode that completely changes the complexion of...
