    The new patch for Rainbow Six: Siege is probably best avoided for now, as there are reports that it’s bricking entire PlayStation 4 consoles. While the severity of the problems range from simple crashes all the way through to wiped hard drives, we’d recommend giving Y2S3.1 a wide berth until things are fixed. It all...

    Review Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

    Marvellous?

    For a publisher seemingly in need of a success story, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite should be the very definition of an easy win.

And that’s ignoring the fact that...

    You could make a case for NieR: Automata being one of the biggest success stories of 2017.
