What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 54

Every day and night, babe

Ah, the weekend – that pleasant period of the week where we get to hang up our work clothes, and sit around playing games in our pants.

Raiden you wait and see?

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may have been borderline incomprehensible at points – seriously, what the heck happened during that final boss fight? – but it was yet another outstanding action game from Japanese developer Platinum Games. And, during the Taipei Game Show overnight, Sony has hinted that a sequel to the...

Bloodborne's PS4 Bundle Will Inaugurate Newcomers

Cry baby

If you've ever tried out for a college or university sports team, then you'll know a thing or two about the inauguration process – namely that it separates the men from the boys.

Life Is Strange PS4, PS3 Reviews Aren't Out of the Ordinary

Mad Max

Given the success of The Walking Dead, it's a surprise that other developers are only just jumping on the episodic bandwagon. With the output of developer Telltale Games starting to get a teensy bit predictable, though, we're really curious to see French developer DONTNOD's take on the format. We've got a reviewer whizzing through episode...

To be honest, it hasn't exactly been the smoothest release for Techland's undead-'em-up, with retail copies inexplicably being delayed in non-American...

The boys are back in town

Recently, it was revealed that Dragon Ball Xenoverse would feature 47 playable characters, excluding those that you create yourself, and while cramming that rather large cast into one seven minute trailer would be incredibly difficult, the brawler's tried its best to fit as many fighters as possible into its latest video...

You're Not Sick of LEGO Games, Are You?

Jurassic World, Marvel's Avengers, and more on the way

While the likes of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed frequently get lambasted for being annualised, Warner Bros seems to have gotten away with milking LEGO like a particularly profitable cash cow. Last year saw the release of four fresh toy-based adaptations, and we'll be getting a further...
