Glitch in the animus

With Assassin's Creed Unity stalking Paris later this year only on next-gen consoles, it's up to Assassin's Creed Rogue to fill in on the PlayStation 3. Other than some sparse gameplay details, we haven't had a good look at the last-gen stab-'em-up yet, but all that's changed thanks to an eight minute walkthrough from publisher...

Surprise! You Can Create Your Own Outrageously Cool Dragon Ball Character in Xenoverse

What does the scouter say

Remember back when we saw the original magazine scans for upcoming brawler Dragon Ball Xenoverse, and everyone was pondering about the identity of that unknown fighter in the corner of one of the screenshots? Well, if you said that he was probably some sort of custom character, then congratulations — you were spot on...

PS4 Exclusive The Tomorrow Children Doesn't Look Like PixelJunk

It's really complicated, though

Sony’s press conference at Gamescom 2014 centred very much on the weird and wonderful, and the platform holder picked a doozy to kick things off. The Tomorrow Children is the latest title from Kyoto-based PixelJunk creator Q-Games, and marks the developer’s return to 3D games – a point which industry veteran...

The Witcher 3 Looks Bloody Brilliant Once Again in This New Gameplay Trailer

Tales from the swamp

We've said it once and we'll say it again: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks bloody fantastic, with an emphasis on bloody.

PlayStation TV Changes the Channel from 14th October

Europe forced to wait until 14th November

PlayStation TV, the teensy PlayStation Vita-based microconsole that launched in Japan last year, will tune in to North American flat screens from 14th October, manufacturer Sony has announced.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition

EA started its fairly lousy Gamescom conference this morning with a lengthy demo of incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Pix the Cat Brings Crazy Arcade Action to PS4 and Vita

Catception

If you remember spending all of your time on your mobile phone playing Snake before the days of the App Store and smartphones, you're going to love Pastagames' upcoming Pix the Cat.

Gamescom 2014: Hollowpoint Hits Hard and Heavy on PS4

Hollowpoint Hits Hard and Heavy on PS4

The Contra of the future

2D side-scrolling shooters are a tough genre to tackle. Sure, it's simple enough for developers to make one and call it a day, but it's easy for these games to fall into the trap of being generic and unable to stand out. What does Ruffian Games have in mind to jump over that obstacle? With its work on the Xbox 360...

Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Shoot the guns

EA's conference at Gamescom today was a little dry, to the say the least. The perennially unpopular publisher closed out its show with a brand new single player trailer for Battlefield Hardline, which you can view down below. After a hairy altercation with a particularly nasty foe, our quick witted hero Nick Mendoza finds himself...

Gamescom 2014: PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

Missing in action

It’s rare for us to write a story about what wasn’t announced during a PlayStation press conference – after all, we typically have our work cut out just trying to cover what was announced. However, the PlayStation Vita’s complete lack of presence during the Japanese giant’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing today definitely...

Gamescom 2014: Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making a New Silent Hill Game for PS4

Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making a New Silent Hill Game for PS4

Wait, what?

In arguably the most bizarre and brilliant headline to come out of Sony's Gamescom conference today, it has been uncovered that Hideo Kojima will be creating a new Silent Hill game for PlayStation 4. Ever the provocateur, Kojima couldn't simply announce the game during the presser, but instead had to sneakily reveal it afterwards...

Reaction: PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

On closer reflection

Sony usually marches into Gamescom unobstructed. The platform holder has been holding press conferences in Cologne for as long as we’ve been running this website, even revealing the PlayStation 3 Slim – the redesign which would eventually reverse its flagging format’s fortunes – at the event some five years ago. In...
