    Review Ghost Blade HD

    Ghost in the Hell

    Bullet hell shoot-'em-ups can be intimidating to jump into if you're not a diehard player of the genre. Where Ghost Blade HD succeeds most is in finding the delicate balance between offering a level of difficulty that doesn't turn off newcomers, but also challenges seasoned veterans. Before starting the actual game you can jump...

    PlayStation Plus +

    Microsoft made an interesting announcement today: Xbox Game Pass.

    Signing of the summer

    In a rather bizarre turn of events, EA boss and all-round entertaining industry figure Peter Moore will be taking on the role of CEO at Liverpool Football Club.

  • Hands On Turning Back Time with Yooka-Laylee on PS4

    A Rare treat?

    The employees over at Playtonic have been through a lot to say the least, many of them coming from backgrounds at the ever-celebrated developer Rare that was responsible for such timeless classics as Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 007, and Donkey Kong 64 to name a few.

    Life's looking bleak after Brexit

    We won't spoil which city, but Horizon: Zero Dawn is obviously set in the United States.

    Platinum standard

    With the game already readily available in Japan, some of NieR Automata's secrets are starting to trickle online.

    Great power, great responsibility

    It's worth reiterating that Marvel's approach to games is changing.

And that all starts with Spider-Man, the...
