    Review Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    Make America great again

    No one was really expecting that much from Wolfenstein: The New Order when it came out a few years back. It was a nice surprise to find that its bloody, satisfying combat and memorable, well written characters helped make it one of the best shooters on the PlayStation 4. Now that the sequel – Wolfenstein II: The New...

    Review Megaton Rainfall

    God almighty

    Even ignoring the fact that Megaton Rainfall was created by one man, this game is a technical marvel on the scale of a No Man’s Sky or other similar procedurally generated games. You play as Superman in all but name, and your task is to protect the Earth – amid brief vacations among the stars, of course. Sound fun? It’s actually...

    Review AER: Memories of Old

    Sky high

    AER: Memories of Old is like the beautiful lovechild of Journey and The Legend of Zelda. It has the unmistakable indie whimsy of the former and takes clear inspiration from the latter. It's a simple but wonderful little experience, focusing on exploration, light puzzle elements, and relaxation. AER guides you through a broken yet peaceful...

    Fart attack

    Given the mire that mankind currently finds itself in, we should probably applaud Trey Parker and Matt Stone's scattershot, omnilateral approach to satire in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, a game which mercilessly skewers all facets of modern life. Regardless of which side of the political spectrum you align with, your...

    Review Gran Turismo Sport


    We’ve always taken Gran Turismo’s slogan, “the real driving simulator”, to be something of an underhand admission.

In order to stay competitive, you need to keep playing, studying minute details like the number of frames in an...

    Subdued spooks

    There’s a certain genius to madness. That’s especially true for crafting superb survival horror that balances the irrational and bizarre with careful consideration.

    Tekken 7 is a bloody good fighting game -- one of the best on PlayStation 4, as far as we're concerned -- but its lack of an introductory tutorial has always seemed like an oversight. Without one, newcomers are all but forced to look up guides and videos online in order to fully understand the fundamentals of the combat system...
