Deadly Premonition, King of Fighters, and loads of RPGs

Chances Are That You Haven't Found Guacamelee!'s Biggest Secret Yet

But what could it be?

We absolutely loved Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition despite the fact that typing out its full title is an absolute pain in the bum. With slick platforming, satisfying combat, and a vibrant world, DrinkBox Studios' spicy adventure was great from start to finish, but what if we told you that your impressive 100%...

Vita's Next Firmware Update Will Let You Watch PS4 Livestreams

Snug fit

The PS Vita's upcoming firmware update looks like it's going to be quite a substantial one.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

A good sssstarting point

Warriors titles may be having a decent critical run of late, but even that doesn't help the fact that this year has already had its fair share of titles from Koei Tecmo's slash-'em-up franchises. We've had Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition and Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn, and now we've got Warriors...

Pre-Ordered Destiny and CoD: Advanced Warfare? Congrats, You get an Armour Shader

Bet you're over the moon

We've all sat and watched as pre-order bonuses have gotten crazier over time, as near pointless trinkets are offered up as a way to entice us into hitting that big colourful 'add to basket' button. But what happens when you pre-order not one, but two different games before a set date? Well, mega publisher Activision has the...

After today's showing, we're becoming convinced that Sony has finally nailed the pacing of its pressers. The games just kept coming,...

A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

Oh Ysssssss!

Ys is a funny old series. The most recent one to come out in the west was Memories of Celceta on Vita, to which we gave a very positive review, but there have been plenty of entries which missed Europe entirely. And while it remains a hopelessly niche property over here in the west, in Japan it's a major franchise. Running since 1987,...
