Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

You'll pay for this

In a somewhat surprising appearance at Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference, upcoming Tolkien tie-in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor shed a little bit of light on its narrative and its ruthless baddies. It's another short and sweet video regarding the upcoming action title, but we reckon it does just enough to get you interested...

Until Dawn Rises on PS4, and Its Darker Than Before

Hayden Panettiere stars in survival horror

Well, we all knew that ex-PlayStation Move exclusive Until Dawn was coming to the PlayStation 4 – but it looks like Supermassive Games has really invested that extra time into creating some impressive character models. While the title’s re-reveal trailer definitely has the same spirit as the original,...

Bloodborne Comes Out Swinging With New PS4 Gameplay Footage

And so the nightly hunt begins

While E3 2014's cinematic trailer for From Software's next PS4 project managed to portray the atmosphere and setting for Bloodborne in all of its gothic, grotesque glory, we finally have a more in-depth look at how the game actually plays, and thankfully, it looks quite a bit better than the leak that appeared months...

Pass the controller

Regardless of whether you loved or hated the content in Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference tonight, there’s a sizeable chance that you probably liked the bit about PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00.

Bungie Details Destiny's Competitive Multiplayer and Clarifies PlayStation Exclusive Content

Bang for your buck

Outside of the alpha and beta, we haven't heard or seen much regarding Destiny's competitive multiplayer offering. Both downloadable sneak peeks only offered one game type — control — so it's about time that we got a better look at the sci-fi shooter's various modes. And this trailer

The firework show at Gamescom 2014 has started a little earlier this year, with Microsoft announcing some form of exclusivity for Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Reading between the lines

Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...

Gamescom 2014: Get a Grip on The Witcher 3's Setting with This Intriguing Developer Diary

Get a Grip on The Witcher 3's Setting with This Intriguing Developer Diary

Mature fantasy

When someone mentions fantasy, many of us tend to think of elves, dwarves, orcs, and trinkets of immense power. And while there's nothing wrong with that outlook, people often forget about the darker, grittier side of the genre — settings that are soaked in blood, bathed in war, and are full of grotesque creatures pulled straight...

Wait, Rise of the Tomb Raider Isn't Coming to PS4?

Them's the breaks

We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday...

Former Famitsu boss teases big TGS reveal

It’s probably a bit cruel to be talking about the next major gaming convention before the current one has even got underway, but it seems like Sony may be stockpiling a seriously big announcement for the Tokyo Game Show in late September. According to Hirokazu Hamamura, the ex-editor-in-chief of Famitsu...

You Can Pop by Clementine's House in The Last of Us Remastered

Who could live in a house like this?

We all know that Easter eggs aren't just designed to make us feel sick, but also to keep us entertained all year round by popping up in video games when we least expect them. It seems that developer Naughty Dog did more than just brush up on the graphics in The Last of Us Remastered, too, as one Twitter user...

Five Ways Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Multiplayer Will Pull the Property into the Future

Power changes everything

You could never describe Call of Duty: Ghosts as a bad game. It was predictable without a doubt, but it was an entertaining enough distraction for a few weeks. Of course, Activision sets its standards higher than that, and it wouldn’t be in control of the biggest first-person property on the planet if it didn’t. Call...
